Question about Hotpoint FFM90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Has been bleeping a while, then fridge got warm, then freezer defrosted!

Is this beyond repair?

I never had the manual as it was given to me as a gift.
It was bleeping but worked for ages okay, then started to get warm in the fridge, and the freezer defrosted!

not really upto to speed with fridge freezers and how to repair them.

Any help would be kindly appreciated!

regards
Simon

    That sounds quite accurate? but i'm not sure what is causing it exactly due to not having the manual.



    It was bleeping which was to do with the temperature, and i assume it was getting too hot of course. I don't know if its the freezing element or something else minor?



    Can anyone else shed some more light on this?

    in the fridge section, we used a thin book to press the plastic switch in, and the closed the door to wedge it in place! as it wasn't cooling, but this didn't work for long before the whole thing defrosted and got warm.

So the freezing element in your fridge is broken and it's beeping because it gets below a certain temperature ?

    So the freezer is not cold at all ?

    Maybe check the switch thingie inside the door which should be pressed in when the door is closed,

Fridge is warm freezer is cold


Hello Abo Karin,

You are likely experiencing a DEFROST failure
(most commonly a defrost PCB failure)...
part number 67006740 item 5 on your exploded
case view (top center as viewed from the front).

There are typically only three (3) elements to a DEFROST
power control circuit:
- Defrost Printed Circuit Board ( PCB as noted above)

- Heater element to WARM the EVAPORATOR

- DEFROST thermostat... inhibit excess heat
(closed circuit at freezing - Opens at room temperature)

Check your defrost pan...
there should be water there DAILY...

IF not: you are assured that your DEFROST fails.

Per your DESCRIPTION...
You need to look for a SUDDEN REASON (huge air leak)
why FROST would form so quickly...
USUALLY a big pizza box... BUT ANYTHING blocking a
TIGHT DOOR SEAL will cause massive frosting.

It is taking moisture from the WARM ROOM AIR and blocking your evaporator...

a PROPERLY functioning defrost circuit would remove that frost
at least DAILY... and the EVAPORATOR fan would properly chill the refrigerated side blowing cold air from the FREEZER.

Yes ... all INTERIOR panels must be in place for the refrigerator to function properly.

Hope this helps

Kenmore classic bottom freezer refrigeration warm but freezer is cold


I would guess you have just caused a build up of ice to block the air way, which normally takes cold air into the fridge. manually defrost (unplug and wait until the ice goes away) then restart and it should be fine

The refrigerator door was left ajar for several hours. then the ref cooling system was not functioning right after the incident. although the freezer is still doing its job Im worried if its beyond repair....


When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature,after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge.But if the defrost cycle does not start then freezer will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge,so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool. Its the defrost problem.Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 4 hours then reconnect it and check,if the same problem is noticed again,.If yes then its defrost board problem.The defrost board located in the back of fridge section.You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site.------------- Thank you.

Freezer is frozen fridge is warm


Your model is most likely the Profile Artica style. Most times the defrost heater is burned out behind the rear of the freezer wall. Manually defrost and look at the defrost heater to see if burned out. That model possibly has the glass covered defrost heater and will be easy to spot if burned out because the element is inside a glass tube, If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Please send me your model number located near floor of the fresh food compartment door seal and kick plate, Thanks Sea Breeze

My hotpoint ff187e fridge/freezer keeps bleeping and flashing how can i fix this? it is only 18 months old.


Turn the second knob at the top to off (freezer knob) turn the fridge freezer off. Then turn it back on. That may sort it. Or you may need to totally defrost the machine as there could be some ice blocking some vents. May need to remove the back panel of the freezer for this (inside).

Freezer not working


there is a defrost fault - quite common with these hotpoint. fault could lie with the module or stats associated with defrost or possibly the heater itself. most probable is the module but impossible to localize by remote control. water drains away thro a hole in the centre of the tray underneath the evaporator
