    It is a hotpoint ffe187e the lights are flashing and the fridge is freezing my salad and meat even though thermostat on low. Thanks for your help

    Thanks for your reply it is much appreciated. Basically my fridge has started freezing my food this happened not long after I first used the quickcool button before then I have had no need to use it. The refridgerator made a beeping noise and the 3 lights on the front 2 green 1 orange started to flash I checked it out the noise stopped but the lights still flash. It has now started freezing my food, I have defrosted it and cleaned everything but nothing has worked. I am reluctant to contact hotpoint although I have made a general enquiry as to the best course of action because they have a bad reputation. Sorry for nit being clear before I really appreciate your help. Many Thanks

    find where the cold control is, make sure all connections inside the box are fine, and take continuity on the switch to see if it is open when its on and off.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Fridge Freezer FF187e - 3 lights flashing

i have just fixed my fridge freezer by following the instruction from KarenBa and GWoman i have also managed to stop the lights (super cool and super freeze) from flashing by turning the temperature to zero on both fridge and freezer so they turn off then holding both super buttons down for about 15 seconds then turning the temperature back up. hope this helps

SOURCE: Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb

The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

Testimonial: "When back and bottom of the freezer were off there was ice everywhere. The drain plug was frozen. Thanks for the advice."

Sounds like the switch that controls the light is disconnected.

Gently pry the switch out(power off) and see that both wires are connected to the switch.

The fridgefreezer has power but no cooling or freezing

Most likely there is low voltage to the unit or the compressor is bad. Is the condenser coil very dirty and if this unit has a condenser fan does it run?

Ice in my fridge

Without seeing this I can't tell you a price or exact fault but the first free thing to try that could likely fix it. unplug the unit from the power and leave both the doors open for 48hrs so the unit is 100% defrosted then try again. cheers.

Type hotpoint ff187e fridge section not cooling lights flashing

It is ice build up in the ducts in the fridge/Freezer section. If you switch off and let it defrost with doors open for 24hrs all will be OK. I have just paid £100 for a call out just to be told this solution to the problem which is something that should be in the inst. manual or told when reporting this fault to try first. One big con from Hotpiont.

My hotpoint ff187e fridge/freezer keeps bleeping and flashing how can i fix this? it is only 18 months old.

Turn the second knob at the top to off (freezer knob) turn the fridge freezer off. Then turn it back on. That may sort it. Or you may need to totally defrost the machine as there could be some ice blocking some vents. May need to remove the back panel of the freezer for this (inside).
