Sandy, this sounds like a bad thermostat. First: does the unit seem to run continuously? Try this: turn the stat to a position near 'off'. Does the compressor turn off? If not: change the stat. Before you do: check the position of the thermostat bulb. On some units, you can see a thick silvery 'wire' coming out of the thermostat housing. It should be fairly straight and generally located near an air duct inside the unit. If it has become dislodged, put it back. If it is broken or kinked, it needs to be changed. Be sure to unplug your fridge before working on this!

Other possible problems: You may have either low gas or a bad defrost timer. Low gas generally will show up as frost on one side of your freezer compartment and airflow will be fairly low when the fan is running. The defrost timer, used to schedule a defrost cycle is generally not a big problem on GE/Hotpoints, though.

On my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge freezer occasional leaks occur at the bottom of the freezer where ice accumulates. The fridge section above is fine. Any suggestions?

There is one in the freezer section as well. It's a small white tube. I've had the same thing happen with mine. I just took everything out of the freezer, and used hot water. It's caused by condensation buildup in the drain tube, which then freezes, obviously because it is a freezer after all. Hot water usually does the trick. Just be sure to clean it up, and dry it off really well so it doesn't re-freeze and cause the same issue.

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so

Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

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.

Fan not working on fridge section of Hotpoint Fridge Freezer Model FFA90

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.
