Freezer switching off on Hotpoint Iced Diamond Fridge Freezer

Hi. I have a Hotpoint Iced Diamond RFA5IP fridge freezer and I find when the room temperature falls to below approx 6 degrees celsius (43 farenheit) the appliance switches itself off and the freezer defrosts. I often come back to find that it has switched itself back on again and the red light (high temperature) is lit. I have altered the temperature dial and tried it at 1, 3 and 5 (it goes from 1 to 5) but this appears to make no difference. I would appreciate your advice on what to do. Many thanks.

Hi Iv got a Hotpoint fridge freezer iced diamond rfa52 it keeps switching on and off it seems when the fridge gets warm it turns back on my freezer is not defrosting but the fridge is then freezing again...


Okay, have you adjusted your cold temp knob inside the fridge part? There are two switches one in the freezer and one in the fridge you will need to watch it day by day until the optimum temp setting has been achieved same goes for the freezer if it defrosts that is the exact point where your freezer is at best! It takes patience so be patient and your problem will be solved! Good luck and thanks again for using fixya.com

I need to replace the rubber seal on my Hotpoint ice diamond freezer door I can't find any fixing screws on the inner door panel can I assume then that the panel clips on.


Me too, I have a Hotpoint Iced Diamond Under counter fridge that needs a new seal and i also cant see any fixings to remove it. I did read somewhere that you can't replace them you need to buy a complete new door.

I have an iced diamond fridge freezer. Turned off unit to defrost freezer. When I turned back on freezer works but fridge never got cold again.


check t ensure that the fan inside the freezer is working properly if the fan is not working inside the freezer then your refridge willnot get cold also if you pull off the back panel inside the freezer you wil see the holes that the air pushes through to go into the fridge section make sure these holes are not blocked if they are your fridge will also not get cold hope this helps if you need a new fan motor for the freezer try marcone appliance uyou can find them online and they directly mail to your door

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
