Question about Hotpoint FFM90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The fridge light has blown, the casing does not fit properly and the noise from the motor is extremely loud. It continually makes a cracking noise as if something is being snapped. When you open the door it does quieten down, but does not stop. It now no longer works and with Christmas around the corner we were hoping for a quick cheap fix.
There is a fan that blows air over the condenser coils under the fridge in the back. You will have to pull the fridge out away from the wall, remove the screws that hold the access plate or panel that covers it. There is probably something catching the fan. This would be a good time to clean as much of the evaporation coils with the light brush or vacuum. It could be the fan is shot but these things operate on a low speed and last a long time. Check this first before doing anything else, The screws are generally removed with w fillips screwdriver of you may have to find a set of small sockets to remove them. It is possible that the compressor is broken in which case you will need a new or used fridge which you can find all over.
