GE profile fridge making loud humming noise

The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

What is causing loud whirring noise in FFA-70 freezer with high freezer temperature and is it likely to be economical to fix?

Think you will find. That ice build up is preventing door closure and also the fan is being obstructed by the ice suggest you empty freezer and defrost for at least 24 hours, be prepared for a lot of water as ice melts

Diverter valve on Hotpoint FFA70 recieves no power, Fridge ok

Bonjour..Your system check (hot cold) is correct. Generally all new refrig/freezers cool only the freezer & bleed cold air off to cool the refrigerator. Most diverter/airflow dampers I have seen are mechanically operated for simplicity & to keep costs down. I would unload freezer and pull the panel off where you see the fan mounted. Go slow, don't drop any screws.You may not get them back. Look at the drain pan under the evap. coil. If it has ice that is built up in layers. Suspect the defrost termination thermostat. If the evap coil is clogged with heavy frost, suspect 1 the defrost timer and 2 the defrost heaters mounted on the evap. coil. Let me know how you make out.

Hi my freezer door on FFA70 Hotpoint isn't closing. I have taken the draws out and defrosted it. The door closes when none of the draws are in, but doesn't when the draws are placed in their...

Hi, I had exactly the same problem and eventually realised that the panel at the back of the freezer was coming loose. When I removed it I found that all the parts behind the panel were covered in ice, a lot of ice! So I have defrosted this ice using bowls of steaming water (not sure if this is an appropriate way to defrost, but it worked fine for me), I have also read you can use a hair dryer to spead up the process - apparently if you try and chip the ice off it can damage the parts in your freezer. I have now fixed the panel back on the freezer and it is working like new and I have had this fridge freezer for years now.

Noises in freezer area of refrigerator

Some refrigerators have a small plastic fan under the bottom shelf of the freezer that circulates air. It's not too unusual for a heavily loaded shelf to rub the fan blades making the noise you describe. If you empty the freezer, you'll fin a few screws holding the bottom shelf in. remove the shelf and inspect the fan and surrounding parts for signs of rubbing. Also tug on the fan blade lightly to see if it is still attached to the motor's shaft securely. New fan blades can be purchased at a good appliance repair shop. Good Luck

Hotpoint FFA71 fridge and freezer suddenly stopped working

Sounds as though the compressor has stopped working. It feeds both compartments with control from a printed circuit above the top door.Where all your red lights are ablaze! (This can be replaced by removing the 2 screws and "clicking" out the small panel) Check that the compressor is running at the bottom rear of the fridge/freezer before anything else.

Hotpoint FFA70 - Freezer door will not close properly.

The rear panel can be removed,i have done it.I removed the 4 hex head screws from the top & bottom of the panel,and firmly pulled it forward.The reason i say pulled firmly is that when panel came out the back of the freezer was solid with ice.I have defrosted the freezer,dried any water from the unit and replaced the panel.Fingers crossed,so far,so good.In my case this build up of ice was definately the reason the drawers were not sitting in the correct position,as it caused the rear panel to 'bulge' out.Hope this helps.....
