Lights flashing on Hotpoint FF187E Fridge Freezer

Woke up this morning with the freezer door slightly ajar and a pool of water on floor. The lights are flashing on top of fridge freezer. Still feels cold inside fridge and freezer. Will the food be ok to eat? Are the lights flashing as the door was open all night? Food is still solid frozen in freezer. Thanks. Cant find manual!!
Regards
Jenny.

Hi, there is nothing to worry, if you can see ice on the food and feels cold it will be ok, the lights indicate that the freezer has been open for a long time, now close the power and clean any water and turn it back on, within 30mins the lights should go.

Regards

The light in my freezer stays on when the door is closed.


I am curious how you know it is on unless you get inside. Some have magnet switches that will not cycle until the gasket seals.

Why has my kenmore elite trio refrigerator started to intermittently started to chime


Hi! I am having this exact problem also. The best answer I have been able to discover is that it is related to the freezing up of the internal water tube that drains the fridge compartment into the freezer section. In addition, a pool of water freezes on the interior floor of my freezer and has to be manually chipped up and removed. I did try to unload the freezer and defrost it thoroughly, but it still happens and has to be chipped each week. I am still seeking a solution, but at least I can make the chiming stop by locking the temperature via the button on the front panel. Best wishes. If you discover a better or final soln, please post. I will do so as well.. Regards.

Hello, my hotpoint FF187E fridge freezer keeps tripping my electric off, sometimes it will stay on for a couple of days other times it does this straight away, any idears would be appreciated, thanks...


you may have a burned wiring which when wet trips off you electricity. the location may be in front of your unit between the doors if you have a two door fridge. if you have a singole door unit it may be located on lower area of the fridge body which where the water flow down when you have excess water dripping infront of your fridge. those two location are most likely because the wiring installations from thermostat, heater, and ligth are there. ofcourse you have to check first the compressor and it's auxillaries

Problem has sorted itself out. We removed and gave away quite a lot of food from the freezer and cleared away some ice that had accumulated on the temperature sensor. When we checked this morning the temperature had returned to -24 C so we don't need to go in search of a new freezer today, thank goodness!

Fridge/Freezer combo - Freezer working fine but fridge is not


There is a duct between the freezer and refrigerator. Sometimes this duct blocks off with ice and won't allow airflow. Open your refrigerator door and check for air flow if there is none the duct needs to be defrosted. turn off freezer/ refrigerator and defrost.

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).

Servis fridge freezer


Hi ,
ngafm at your service,
If its cold and frozen it may be that the door switch that activates this light in the case that the door is ajar, is faulty.
Or it may be that the temperature is dropping to slowly for you to see it by eye!
The whole purpose of the, "door ajar" light is to protect you food from spoilage and to warn you before it gets to warm!
Door ajar or not!!!
My advice is to fix the problem now no matter if it is only the switch causing a false alarm.
Or the worst case scenario !

You need hands on service!
Bless You ,
ngafm,
please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank you.
