SOURCE: 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 FFA71 NOT DEFROSTING


Self defrosting feature is not working. Check defrost thermostat, defrost heater, defrost timer for proper operation.

Until repair is made, defrost the unit and turn back on until it freezes up again. Check the ice block at rear of freezer. If the ice is confined to the area around the refrigeration line coming into the freezer it is low refrigerant level. If the block completely covers the evaporator it is a non working defrost mechanism.
