Food is defrosting in my hotpoint frost free fridge/freezer

I bought my hotpoint frostfree fridge/freezer 6months ago. I just transported the fridge due to my moving into a new home. Left the fridge to settle after 6hours and then switch back on. But now the freezer is defrosting all my food. The super cool, fast freeze and the power on button are beeping continously. Pls help me find a solution to this problem. Thanks

Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.

Can I transport one of your 2 door Fridge/ freezers laying on its side.


only transport a fridge or freezer on it's side if the upright transport is NOT an option.
any chiller using compressed liquid/gas and placed on it's side should be left for 24 hours to settle before powering at the mains, this will allow the coolant time to sink where it should be and prevent the pump (& chiller) from failing.

Hotpoint Future fridge freezer - freezer working well but top of the back of the fridge has a large build up of ice ??? And doesn't appear to be keeping the food cold enough


here are lots of things that can cause cooling problems. One of the most common causes of poor cooling in a frost free refrigerator is a defrost system failure. In such a case one or the other compartment may appear to be keeping proper temperature but that too may change in a short period of time. The fridge compartment's temperature rise is usually (but not always) the first to be noticed. Frost" and "Ice"
There is a difference between "frost" (a white, snow-like substance) and "ice" (usually clear and solid). When referring to what is seen during an inspection, please keep this distinction in mind as the possible causes for each are often very different. The Defrost System
Inspecting the (usually rear) wall of the freezer compartment for a frost build up is necessary. (In the case of many GE top freezer models, check the freezer's bottom panel.) If there is a frost coating on it, it is often a sign of excessive frosting beneath it. Sometimes however the evaporator cover panel will actually need to be removed (see the illustration below) before an excessive frost build will visible.
The refrigeration system's evaporator (cooling) coil is usually in the freezer compartment. This evaporator will periodically frost over and have to be defrosted by means of a heating system. When the defrost heating system fails, the frost can accumulate to such a degree that airflow throughout the appliance is hampered. There may be just enough air circulation to cool the freezer section but that will eventually stop too.

Just had delivered a logic fridge freezer 6months old is it safe to use straight away


If the fridge was transported standing up, it is safe to use right away. If it was transported on its side, I would wait 24 hours.

FREEZER NOT FREEZING PROPERLY


There could be a large list of things that cause the freezer to warm up from the temperature it was before. The most likely reason is you probably have a defrost problem. Defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost control are all things that may have failed. If your model is not a frost free let me know. Look inside freezer for a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If your refrigerator is not defrosting it will be a short time before the fresh food compartment begins to warm. To extend the time your refrigerator and freezer can keep food safe defrost by placing a bucket of hot water inside the freezer and close the door. Please place food from freezer and fresh food compartment into another refrigerator or cold storage area. By keeping doors shut as much as possible the refrigerator and freezer will last up to a week this way before defrosting again, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator was bought 5yrs ago(brand new)it worked perfectly until then....put it in storage 4 six months...when i moved it into my house i plugged it up...can hear it on but yet to get cold....left it...


Hi
Is your fridge compressor motor working and can you hear it turn on and off every hour or so. Not to be confused with the sound coming from the fan inside the fridge.
If the motor is working but neither the fridge or freezer compartment are getting cold, then there may have been a rupture during transport and gas has escaped.
