Freezer door keeps opening on hotpoint ffa70s. The fridge is level, but the large middle drawer has been broken at both corners. Could this be pushing the door open?

    When I close my refrig. door the freezer side keeps popping open. It's almost as if the door pressure from one side is forcing the other side to open. Any solutions?

Maybe, but if there is a magnetic door seal, they sometimes warp or need replacing..

Diverter valve on Hotpoint FFA70 recieves no power, Fridge ok


Bonjour..Your system check (hot cold) is correct. Generally all new refrig/freezers cool only the freezer & bleed cold air off to cool the refrigerator. Most diverter/airflow dampers I have seen are mechanically operated for simplicity & to keep costs down. I would unload freezer and pull the panel off where you see the fan mounted. Go slow, don't drop any screws.You may not get them back. Look at the drain pan under the evap. coil. If it has ice that is built up in layers. Suspect the defrost termination thermostat. If the evap coil is clogged with heavy frost, suspect 1 the defrost timer and 2 the defrost heaters mounted on the evap. coil. Let me know how you make out.

Hotpoint AAf70 how do I turn the auto defrost off


There is no way to do this, the machine requires the defrost timer to function. I don't really understand what the problem your having is.

Problem with fridge light on Hotpoint FFA70


Did you check the new lamp when you put it in? Did you keep the old lamp? It may well be the switch rather than the lamp itself. Check the lamp has continuity from the middle pin to the outer and the filament isn't broken

Hotpoint FFA70 - Freezer door will not close properly.


The rear panel can be removed,i have done it.I removed the 4 hex head screws from the top & bottom of the panel,and firmly pulled it forward.The reason i say pulled firmly is that when panel came out the back of the freezer was solid with ice.I have defrosted the freezer,dried any water from the unit and replaced the panel.Fingers crossed,so far,so good.In my case this build up of ice was definately the reason the drawers were not sitting in the correct position,as it caused the rear panel to 'bulge' out.Hope this helps.....

My FFa70 hotpoint freezer will not close unless i take out all the drawers. What is the problem?


there is something wrong with the drawers position. they could have been installed in the reverse position or they could have been in the wrong placement. one could be on top while the other could be at the middle.

try putting the drawers one by one and check each time if the door could be close by then.

tnx 4 using fixya,
