It is one of two things. Either your compressor went bad or the relay that connects to the compressor is bad. Those are the only two reason why it would not cool at all. You can try to unplug it and plug is back and and see what happens it might shock it back

Hotpoint ctx18ea fridge not cooling


Kimberley, try this:

First see any sign of ice build up in the freezer.

1. Switch off power from wall outlet.
2. Open the fridge door and freezer door and keep them open for atleast 5-6 hours. Salvage whatever food you can.
3. You may now see a puddle of water under the fridge. Clean the floor and inside of the fridge if water and other fluids visible .
4. Now re-connect power and set the recommended settings- usually at 4. Close doors.
5. Your fridge will be making a humming sound. Let it begin to cool.
Good luck

Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer compartment of my hotpoint FFM90 frost free fridge/ freezer. Please help. Many Thanks


Had exactly the same problem.
It was due to a blockage of the drain.
At the back of the freezer there is the pump and there is a small darin that lets condensation from inside the freezer spill onto the top of the (hot) pump to be evaporated. When this small drain blocks it causes issues like water leaking out of freezer and big chunks of ice at the back of the bottom compartment.
The fix is easy, if a little laborious.
Take all the stuff out of the freezer, then dismantle the internal plastic trip, don't worry, you can't really break anything and it goes back together easily, Eventually you will be left with just the bare metal insides and in the middle at the bottom back you will see the drain collection point, slightly hidden from view is the drain hole. Pour warm water onto this till it comes out onto the pump at the back.
Then use a pipe cleaner to clean.
Re-assemble - done :)

Water leaking inside of the fridge from the top


It sounds like your frost-free freezer is cycling through its normal defrost mode, which allows the cooling assy. to be deiced and that melted ice (water) will run out and down to the drain in the bottom of your fridge.
