Question about Hotpoint 4.87 cu. ft. / 138 liter Upright Freezer FZA50

Open Question

I have a FZA50P Hotpoint freezer. Although I have wound the thermstat right up it has trouble keeping cold enough and runs at -12 to -14 max. Also every 3 or 4 days the high temp light comes on and then goes off after about 1/2 an hour. I took the cover off inside today and saw that the bottom 1/3 of the coil was fozen solid and had a very large build up of ice on it. Also the drain plug is frozen solid all the way through. The fan at the top seems to spin ok; but haven't seen it working on it's own. Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have a hotpoint freezer fza34 The red high temp


it could be that your fridge,freezer setting is not turned up high enough to keep the freezer cold enough.turn it up to setting number 5 at least and if that dont do it u could have a faulty thermostat.have it checked by a engineer.

Please check the Thermostat switch settings. Try to put it to max cool and then see the results. If it still does not cool the you have to check the refrigent. It is lee and leaking somewhere. Get a technician and get it charged up.

Will it freeze water? The vent coming into the freezer may be blocked. Check that and see. Is the refrigerator keeping those items cool? You may also have a vent blocked by the fan cover (dusty). If all this is right, you may have a freon leak or worse a compressor or evaporator going bad.
