bulmer...it takes about two days to fully defrost these units unless you take the freezer section cover off and use a heat source. If you do...be sure to protect yourself against water and electricity mixing....not healthy. See below for another note.
clean the condenser coils below the unit.
check for the amount of gas in the unit. It must be off for half an hour. Remove the back fiber panel. The big thing is the compressor. Clean off the largest pipe coming out of it. Plug the unit in...watch out for the fan! The pipe should frost up and then clear off or stay wet after about 5 minutes. It should not be frosty. If it is, you need refrigerant.
Note: If you do remove the inside freezer panel and defrost, you can see how much refrigerant you have in your unit. Start the unit. Wait 5 minutes and observe the coils. They should be evenly frosted end to end. If approximately so, you're good. If not, you're low on gas.

I had the same problem. Hotpoint told me it was the electronic card, and I waited 3 weeks for them to get one in stock. Just been fitted and made no difference, though the Hotpoint man told me it was fixed. I have just spent half an hour "shaking and whaking" various bits at the back of the fridge freezer and the compressor has finally kicked into life.
Concentrate your shaking and whacking on the black square thing to the left of the compressor.
Going to quit my job and become a freezer repair man.

Hi. I had the same problem (funnily just as my warranty had run out) hotpoint wanted about £90 plus parts for a call out. You need to replace the Yellow thermistor in the freezer compartment (quite easy with a cross screwdriver and thin fingers). I got mine from Uk White Goods for about £20 they give advice too. Solved it instantly. Thanks HOTPOINT, wont be spending £600 with you again. Good Luck.
