    Freezer works fine but the fridge will not cool.

  • icelander Feb 23, 2008

    Hi



    We have a similar problem with our 4 year old FFA90P. Last week noticed that both freezer & fridge compartments were not working but fridge light does come on. Havent been able to get a repair guy out yet and wife is now adamant she wants a new one. Has been switched it off for a week now - so presumably any ice should have defrosted. Switched it on today and it seems to have a low humming noise - albeit no where near as loud as it was before. Fridge still not working but freezer is cold - not freezing but at about the temperature the fridge should be! Any clues before we buy a new fridgefreezer?



    Thanks, Dave

    FFA90 - Noisy Fan - recommended by maintenance company that it is build up of ice on the fan best solution to defrost Fridge freezer turn off for 24 hours. Done this but after 3hours when switched back on fan became noisy again. Any solutions.

The problem is there is a build up of ice insid of the freezer .
What you need to do is take out all your draws in the freezer and you will see a plastic backing held on with about 8 screws . undo all the screws and the back should come aay and you will see all the ice built up . just use a hair drier to melt the ice and that should cure your problem.

    i would say this is not helpful ... maybe my case is different.. here it is... freezer is cold, frost on the evaporator, the passageways are clear of ice as we've cleaned and melted them out overnight. the fan has never worked since we noticed the fridge warming up... soo, the fan wont blow the cold air round upto the fridge... i just need to know really, is the fan at fault? or will it be something in the link telling the fan not to operate?

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


Hi,

First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

Bosch kann58a50gb/o8 fridge not cooling freezer seems ok


See or hear if the fan inside is working. Im not conversant with your model. Some units have 2 fans , 1 in the freezer and 1 in the fridge. Some only have1 , which will be in the freezer only. If the fan fails, the fridge cannot blow cold air into the food compartment. Generally, when an evaporator fan fails, the fridge doesn't get cold and the freezer overfreezes causing an excess ice buildup in the freezer.

Hotpoint ffa90 fridge/freezer. why freezer not working?


Dear William,


Here is a link for you at Library Hotpoint Freezer Instructions For Installation and Use ManualsOnline com

This appears to be a temperature sensor which has failed or is outside of tolerance. It will be seen in the manual and is attached directly to the coil. The bus it is connected to will have two wires running to it. In order to read the sensor . A digital multi -meter is necessary to read the DC voltage. The tolerances are in the repair manual.

Fare. Well.

Hotpoint FFA90 fridge not cooling - freezer working perfectly....


Check to see if the fan is blocked or not functioning. The air is sent to the fridge from the freezer usually with a small fan and if the opening is blocked that will happen. The fan could also be bad or it is not getting any power.

Hotpoint FFA90 fridge freezer, fridge not cooling but freezer OK, was told vent proabaly blocked and to de-ice. Turned appliance off for two days, turned back on worked fine for 1 week but now fridge is...


i have the same problem. took apart the vent in the fridge at the top and thought maybe it needed replacing as that controls the amount of cold coming up from the freezer, but there doesn't seem to be any cold coming through. does anyone know if this is 'blown' through by a fan of some sort?

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
