Fridge freezer not working

Hi guys,
I have a Hotpoint ice diamond Type R134A that has stopped working. the unit is not very old and in new condition.
The compressor is not working, fridge light comes on so not a fuse problem.
I have looked into the rear, at the side of the compressor is a white tube with the following info: 420v - 30000h/class A. 470v 10000h/class B. -25/85/21 would this be the the thermostat? if it is can it be tested?

I have managed to farm out the contents to friends until I either have it replaced or repaired. After Christmas, I am no expert but can manage simple DIY . if pointed in the right direction.
thank you for any assistance.regards john.

Thermostat can easily be determined, it has knob or a display for digital control. If it is a knob try to set it to high cool but if wont work.Try to unplug the unit and pull out the thermostat set it to high cool and check if there is a resistance on its terminals. Or check for open overload compressor Or may be the winding of compressor is open.

Hoshizaki water dont stop runing


float switch is stuck in the "down" position. The unit goes thru a fill cycle and after 1 minute, the board "Looks" at the float swith to "see" if the sump is full. If float is stuck down, it tells the board that the unit does not have enough water and stays in the fill cycle. The compressor will not come on as long as the machine "thinks" there is not enough water. let me know if I can help further

What's the amperage on my Hotpoint Freezer? I want to calculate how much this unit is costing me in energy. Model number FV15CRB, serial number(?) AV 336553. Thanks!


Hi, to find out the total amperage of your unit, you should have a data plate most of the time, located inside with the compressor amperage, and both fan motor amps. If not inside, it will be outside of the unit. It will tell you the RLA and the FLA of each. It will also show the freon type and amount you use. Also, on top of your compressor is a plate that has the RLAmps on it also. This is what you need to find on this unit to help you on your calculations.

Water collecting in fridge well


your drain line is clogged. Either drefrost the entire unit or use a hair dryer to defrost the drain line in the back of the unit's refrigerator section. Some units have a drain line in the back that is black and needs to be cleared,

The larger pipe on compressor should get cold. The smaller should get warm to very hot depending on ambient conditions. Parts should be available, including a universal relay kit I could hook you up with. First determine if the compressor is running. Let me know. :)

Need to know what type of freon to use to recharge a one yaer old Beverage Air Sandwich table refrigeration unit. Is this the same process as recharging an automotive AC system?


Beverage air used R134a almost exclusively on refrigerators. The process is similiar to ac systems. You should weigh the charge in as per the data plate. Be precise as over or under charge can dramitically affect the performance of the unit. Hope this helps

How old is this freezer


Check the name plate for refrigerant type, if R134A it was made after 1992, If R12 it was made before 1992. If you can find the name plate on the compressor there should be some kind of a date code on it in the lower left corner.
