Question about Hotpoint FFA60 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Frige-Freezer not coming on!

Hi, My Hotpoint Fride Freezer FFA60 was working well except for the fridge light (inside the fridge) not coming on. I was trying to change the bulb when it came on suddenly but blew shortly thereafter. The fridge/freezer isn't coming on now and none of the lights are working. I have checked the fuse on the plug and there is power in the socket...any suggestions?

There is really nothing You personally can do to fix it, oyu will have to call a serviceman, i reccommend sears. It is a internal circuit or wire that probably blew and needs to really be fixed by a professional.

    Sorry, thinking U.S.A., Sears is a local place that sells most appliances and has repairmen.
    My suggestion is to consult your local repairman or dealer.

Hotpoint FFA60 - Freezer Fan not working

It sounds as if the fan motor itself has failed, & without the fan, only the coils will get cold. A replacement can be obtained from any appliance parts store, or from Hotpoint...check the website. If you are not experienced in appliance repair, I suggest you call a repair person , as some of the fans can be difficult to replace, & it is easy to cause additional damage.

that model number does not come up in my program, so I cannot give you any concrete advice. The fact that your freezer is great is a good sign, nothing major. Sounds like you may have a bad freezer fan motor, not blowing cold air down to the fridge section. but the fact that it is intermittent like that, you might have a faulty main control board. Without proper inspection, I cant say for sure.

Bottom freezer not working

Hi, sorry I do not have any advice to offer. We have the same model. Three weeks ago the red light came on and freezer stopped working. Last week the fridge packed up. We may have been unlucky but I thought it might be worth mentioning incase they were related and your fridge gave up as well.

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.
