Question about Hotpoint FFA90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hotpoint FFL49X Fridge compartment

When the fridge is cooling the fan starts to make a noise which has been gradually getting louder over the past few days. Now unbearable to listen to. The 1st year warranty has typically just expired, but we not even used over that full time period. 10 months use. I can't see any visible forms if ice build up, so assume the frost free function is ok. There no flashing warning lights on the display and the temperature is set to 5 degrees C for the fridge. Apart from the noise is OK, but expecting a motor to burn out soon?

    Ice still builds up over time around the fan so contact and noise will eventually be made.

GE Hotpoint has a history of bad fans and poor customer service. Unfortunate and a costly defect. Repair this yearly, forever or trash and buy new???

This may be caused by a fanmotor touching something, or one of the copper tubes from the compressor causing a resonant frequency. If you touch the different tubes to find out which one is causing the noise and then slightly bend it with your fingers. That should stop the noise.

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.

does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop
