It's probably the defrost timer is getting stuck in the defrost mode. What it does it it periodically interrupts power to the compressor and sends power to the defrost coils to allow any frost on the cooling coils to melt to keep them clear of ice build up. This is typically a mechanical timer and sometimes the motor fails and it stop turning and if it fails in the defrost mode, the compressor never turns back on no matter how warm the freezer is.

You can confirm it is the timer, by tracing the wires from the compressor to a little 2 by 2 inch box which is the timer. On one side there should be a round hole with a plastic cam. You should be able to turn that cam with a flat screw driver or a coin. Just give it a slight turn until you hear a click. After you turned the cam, the compressor should start. If it does, then it is the timer.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

I have a hotpoint freezer fza34 The red high temp


it could be that your fridge,freezer setting is not turned up high enough to keep the freezer cold enough.turn it up to setting number 5 at least and if that dont do it u could have a faulty thermostat.have it checked by a engineer.

My hotpoint future fza34 is leaking from underneath


you need to get to the back of fridge and ul notice a tray full of water ontop of the compressor. remove tray and empty water out. when replacing v important to make sure it is sitting level on compressor again.

there is also an underlaying prob here, maybe alot of condensation on shelves also??

ensure doors are closing properly and saels are in good shape, also avoid putting warm food in fridge and make sure liquids are covered. this should stop tray filling with water and leaking

I believe you freezer has sprung a Freon leak. You described it and if it changes levels is a way of measuring what Freon you have remaining. Sometimes they can be repaired it depends on how they were built. Hope you did not loose much food, Sea Breeze
