Does it not self defrost or are you having problems getting it to defrost,if you want to manually defrost it hake a small heating device or put a pan of boiling water in with door partially shut then when ice is loose peel it off,of course this is done with the unit shut off

Fridge not working but freezer is. Why?


I presume it is a combined fridge/freezer. the reason for this is probably because it uses 2 compressors one for the fridge and one for the freezer. sounds like the fridge has lost its gas or the thermostat has packed in. turn the thermostat up and see if you can hear the compressor start up. if not then you will have to either replace the fridge freezer or get a repair person out to look at it.

Hi Iv got a Hotpoint fridge freezer iced diamond rfa52 it keeps switching on and off it seems when the fridge gets warm it turns back on my freezer is not defrosting but the fridge is then freezing again...


Okay, have you adjusted your cold temp knob inside the fridge part? There are two switches one in the freezer and one in the fridge you will need to watch it day by day until the optimum temp setting has been achieved same goes for the freezer if it defrosts that is the exact point where your freezer is at best! It takes patience so be patient and your problem will be solved! Good luck and thanks again for using fixya.com

Sounds like a defrost component Dave Start by turning the defrost timer slowly clockwise until refrigerator stops running and then stop. Open freezer and look and feel. Is defrost beginning to melt the ice?

The fridge has stoped workingbut the freezer is fine


if it starts working ok after the defrost then you might find it will build up ice again.
There might be a fault with a small device called a thermister that senses the ice build up for the defrost controller.

What most likely is happening is the ice build up freezes the fan that blows the cold air to the fridge compartment.and around the freezer.

What is best way to defrost hotpoint future rf175b


The model number you gave is not valid. To defrost a fridge you have two options.
Is this a manual defrost? If so boil pot of water and set on rack inside the freezer. You will have to remove big chunks of ice.
Auto defrost fridges. Option 1- Unplug fridge open doors and leave for 24-48 hrs. A bit messy with this so have towels around fridge to soak up water.Option 2- Unplug fridge remove access panel on back wall inside freezer. Take hair dryer and melt all the ice inside on the coils. If you have an ice block you have a problem replace bi metal/efrost thermistat. Heater and/or defrost timer may also be out.
If you have an Ice block on auto defrost models always change the bi metal because they get warped usually inside and ruin them. Test heat with continuity tester and defrost timer by manually advanceing just before shutdown time and letting run through cycle. Should stay in defrost between 8 and 30 minutes.

If you need further assistance or have any questions please comment me back.

Hi I got fridge from charity shop hotpoint FF71S fridge freezer, and fridge is not cool enough, I do not have manual, can you help me please! Thanks Syeda


Hi,
I'm Leo
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Sounds like a defrost problem.

It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.

Brandt apollo fridge/freezer - food defrosts + salad freezes


Check the vents in the fridge side and close a little if you can. On the freezer side just for good measure>>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack
