You have to defrost your unit. This usually solves the problem. Remove your frozen food to a good ice chest. Put the refridgerated food in a seperate container ( another ice chest ) and unplug your unit, and open the doors over night. Plug it back in, replace your food an hour or so later.

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.

Fridge part working freezer not


The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

We have a Hotpoint Side by side- Freezer is working but the Refrigerator is not getting cold - What to do??


There is a couple of things that could be going on here.

1. Open you freezer door look at the back panel and see if it is covered in ice. If it is you most likely have a defrost issue. If this is the case the Evap coil becomes covered in ice to the point it does not allow any air flow.

2. Open freezer door and with one hand push in the door switch so the light goes off. Listen and feel to see if the Evap fan motor is running. If it is not running we could have a bad fan or a bad board.

3. Open you fridge door, in the top left portion of the should be a damper assy. put your hand in front of this damper and fee for cold air and some air movement.

After you have done these three things I walk you a little further in solving your proble,

Refrigerator side of hotpoint side by side quit working - replaced the control panel and it is still not working. the crisper drawers seem to be colder than the refrigerator part, but it is still not cool...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Maytag MBB1954GES not cold. Fresh food area warm, motor not on. Freezer OK.


Check the freezer fan is running with the door switch pushd in by hand, check the back wall of the freezer for frosting if it's frosty check the defrost system eg defrost element, Defrost termination stat and defrost timer. If the freezers running perfect check the fridge difuser/damper and see if it's open this is the part that opens and closes the vent between the freezer and fridge to allow cold air into the fridge. The Damper is up the top left corner of the fridge. cheers.

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.

Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold


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.

FFA60 Hotpoint fridge/freezer Red warning light


if i read the english right, the compressor runs but the freezer fan only runs for a short time. no fan then no cooling. there is a fan stat so that the fan only runs when the evap is down to temp. this may be faulty. also on some hotpoint, the fan switches off when door opened. check door switch operating ok. this may also explain problem with fridge lamp
