This more than likely is because your evap.coil is frosted up do to a part failure with the defrost system. Look at the freezer back panel is there alot of frost growing all over it this is the number one sign. Either way take the back panel off and make a visual check. If there is alot of frost first get a multimeter and set it on Ohms with alert chime meaning you get continuity. First check the defrost heat if you get the chime sound from the meter or NOT a infinite number of Ohms then its good. Then look for the round shaped part hooked to the evap and in series to the heater this is the bimetal (while its good and cold) cut wires to it and strip ends and check for continuinty there also if so, it's good but must be frozen cold to get continuity wire nut it back after check if good. If those parts check out then your mechanical defrost timer is bad or adaptive defrost board is bad it would be either one depending on this model of fridge you have. Hope I helped.

SOURCE: Hotpoint freezer, High temp light on & all food thawing

It's probably the defrost timer is getting stuck in the defrost mode. What it does it it periodically interrupts power to the compressor and sends power to the defrost coils to allow any frost on the cooling coils to melt to keep them clear of ice build up. This is typically a mechanical timer and sometimes the motor fails and it stop turning and if it fails in the defrost mode, the compressor never turns back on no matter how warm the freezer is.

You can confirm it is the timer, by tracing the wires from the compressor to a little 2 by 2 inch box which is the timer. On one side there should be a round hole with a plastic cam. You should be able to turn that cam with a flat screw driver or a coin. Just give it a slight turn until you hear a click. After you turned the cam, the compressor should start. If it does, then it is the timer.

Hotpoint freezer FZA84 does not freeze ,high temperature light is on. when switched on the temperature comes down to about -12 C . does not come any lower but i hear a irregular hissing sound probably


You need to cut it off. You may be doing a lot of damage there. If this freezer is 8-10 years old, you may want to go ahead and replace it. At least it will not give you any more problems.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
