Re: hotpoint 8496p fride not working

I had a similar problem with a top freezer and it was discovered that the fan had actually slipped down on motor shaft and was stuck against the freezer wall. Check to see if there is enough clearance for the fan to actually spin.

Hotpoint FFA90 fridge not cooling - freezer working perfectly....

Check to see if the fan is blocked or not functioning. The air is sent to the fridge from the freezer usually with a small fan and if the opening is blocked that will happen. The fan could also be bad or it is not getting any power.

Got a hotpoint ffa97, freezer was still cold and no alarm had gone off to say that that there had been a power cut yet the fridge temp had risen enough to curdle milk??\r\ntemp gauge was still showing...

Milk can sometimes curdle in a working fridge. But it does sound like your defrost system may be malfunctioning. Can you empty your freezer and inspect the defrost system behind the air circulator fan?

I know that defrost elements sometimes go bad and the controllers can pop too. You should check your operators manual and see how to put the fridge into manual defrost. *(it usually involves turning the fridge light on and off by hand. See if the freezer drains during manual defrost. If you have lots of food that dries out in a frost free unit the moisture contains a lot of contaminants that can plug the defrost drain. Which leads to a blocked air passage between the freezer and fridge sides.

You might want to get a small backup fridge for a while to run this down.
Or just use up the food in your fridge before running the tests.

Good luck and be careful.

Compressor stopped - no circulation. Fridge has power - internal light on. Drain clear

if you fans are not working and your compressor is not, but your lights are.....
I would start with the overload and relay
they are connected directly to the compressor
goto sears dot com type in your model number
and they will ship you the part

Circulating fan not working

You will need to access the fan. When you do make sure it is not stopped by ice buildup. I it is not, you will need to replace it. Make sure to have your make, model and serial number with you when you go to buy it. You can test the fan by tuching the lead to 110v. If it runs you have a timer problem

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer

The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

My freezer is working but not the fridge? is it broken?

There are a number of fridge freezers which use a fan to circulate cold air from the freezer portion to the fridge. After a while the condensation freezes in the ducts and the air can't circulate. If your fridge is this type try defrosting the freezer.

Freezer is cold but bottom of refrigerator is not

Replace the fan - it's called the evaporator fan. It circulates cold air evenly in the freezer and blows cold air into the refrigerator section. Its failure would cause the symptoms you describe. Good luck with the repair.

Fan not shutting off

The freezer fan will run at all times with the exception of when the system is in the defrost mode. This is a normal condition. The air circulation fans use very little power and are of low wattage. The fan by the compressor cycles on and off with the compressor.
