Hi I have a Hotpoint Fridge Freezer and I have noticed that the Freezer High Temperature light keeps coming on and off.


Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

condenser fan not running (if available)
freezer fan stop working
compressor valves bad
lost of freon (under charge)
defrost heaters not working
bi-metal t'stat not working
timer bad

Freezer not working at all, totally WARM. The high temp red light has been on all week.

Compressor not running? have we got power yes, red light on so we must now decide if the stat is us or the comp is a problem. It must have been a hard week for you, get a freezer geezer to give it a once over.

What price new? to replace against a replacement comp if needed. could be an overload reley if there is one but its rare, good luck.

Red light on not cold enouth

The red light bis indicating that the temp is too high, if you can ,turn the thermostat to a colder setting, if this makes no difference, then you have a serious problem, you will have to call an engineer.

Have an RZA30 freezer thats not freezing

was the compressor running? if the unit fails to make temp at a given setting and the compressor is running then turning down the cold control will not make it colder. the thermostat is a switch that turns the compressor and fans (if you have fans) on and off. the different settings only change at what temp the compressor etc. turns off. make sense? so listen for that compressor if it is running and the unit is war you have refrigeration system trouble: restriction, low charge, leak, etc...
cant tell you which without more info.
