Question about Refrigerators
It's probably timed out on defrost, take everything out (borrow a neighbours or friends freezer and transfer food) switch off, do a thorough manual defrost and check all pipes etc are clean and clear, (and if you are able clean and vacuum around the back while it's off to get rid of all the dust on cooling coils)
it'll prob be ok after that.

if the door seals are both ok, check and see if she has any open containers in the fridge juice ect that may be allowing moisture to escape. a model number and serial nuber off the sticker in the fridge would help me with more ideas.

SOURCE: I have a Hotpoint Mistral
It is possibly the fan hitting any overformed ice.
defrosting by shutting it off overnight would be the best to do first.
Or at least shut it off for a few hours.

Hi. I had the same problem (funnily just as my warranty had run out) hotpoint wanted about £90 plus parts for a call out. You need to replace the Yellow thermistor in the freezer compartment (quite easy with a cross screwdriver and thin fingers). I got mine from Uk White Goods for about £20 they give advice too. Solved it instantly. Thanks HOTPOINT, wont be spending £600 with you again. Good Luck.

E8- Evaporator thermistor short circuit
Well this is a sensor,, found in the freezer compartment of the f/f
what you have to do is reove the draws fro mthe freezer and you will c a panel which has 6 screws., remove the panel and and you will c a fan, toward the right of the fan you will c a yellow plug with a bit of wire on it,
This is what you have to replace
try connect distributions you can find them on the net if your in the uk that is
hope this helps

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.
