Have received a reply from Richie46 regarding Hotpoint fridge - however where do I find the start capacitor and/or start relay?


The start relay is under the cover on the compressor. The wires are connected to it directly. The capacitor may be mounted a short distance from the compressor. Wire color is usually brown or yellow.

Hotpoint RLA64T fridge freezing up after new thermostat fitted


WHEN U TALK ABOUT THE THERMOSTAT U MEAN THE COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT OR DEFROST TIMER THERMOSTAT? WHEN UR PROBLEM SOUNDS MORE LIKE THE DEFROST TERMINATOR OR BAD HEATING ELEMENT, LOCATED ON THE FREEZER EVAPORATOR COILS? IF ITS STAYING ON ALL THE TIME U HAVE A DEFROST ISSUE? OR BAD SEALS ON DOOR AND DIRTY COMPRESSOR

My fridge freezer (Hotpoint FFA70) defrosted of its own accord. The lights are still lit at the top but is there anything I can do?


Hello, Your freezer is supposed to go into a defrost cycle every 8-12 hours. By doing this it defrosts any ice build up on the evaporator coil. Question though are you stateing both the fridge and freezer are wam in your unit? If this were the case then you would locate the compressor which in most units you would have to pull the unit away from the wall and remove the lower panel in order to access the compressor area. You can use the palm of your hand against the side of the compressor to assure if the compressor is running or not. If the compressor were not to be running then on most refrigerators on the side of the compressor is a small box if you were to remove the box this would give you access to the start relay and overload for the unit which is what starts the compressor. You would first unplug the machine and remove the small box. Next you would disconnect the wires going to the relay. After disconnecting the wires you would then remove the relay and overload off the side of the compressor. You would then inspect the relay for any blackend electrical burns and if there were none then you would shake the relay and if you heard a rattle in the relay this would be a sure sign that the relay need to be replaced. If you have any questions or find that the compressor is running when you use the palm of your hand on the compressor message me back for further diagnosis as well as your complete model number. I await your reply Thanks

My refrigerator/freezer has stopped working.


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
If it's iced up really heavy you have an auto defrost problem. Melt the ice with a hairdryer and check the defrost system.

Where is the timer motor on older hotpoint side by sides


Depends on the model, but the easiest place to check is behind the kick panel under the doors. If it's not there try removing the control cover, or you may have to pull the fridge out and remove the compressor cover. These are the 3 most common places for a defrost timer.

Refrigerator stopped after only having 18 months


"part that starts the compressor" could be the thermostat or the compressor relay. most probably the thermostat. the 'stat is indeed nothing to do with the compressor and is only the switch that makes the compressor start. the part is reasonably cheap and easily replaced. hotpoint refrigeration is as good as any and i don't have a vested interest
