Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a hotpoint freezer 8721. The top compartment is consistently freezing up really quickly, which makes it difficult to close the door,which ultimately means im forever defrosting the freezer. I have altered the freezer settings to Economy and obviously not fast freeze, is there anything else i can do, is there another setting i can change that ive missed? Many thanks

Check your door seal gaskets on the freezer door. Your model number is incomplete but I take it that this is not a frost free model. Placing a dollar bill between the frame and the door in the closed position should give resistance when slid or pulled. If not your door seal gasket could be bad or your door out of adjustment.

My Horpoint fridge freezer top drawer in freezer keeps freezing up and drawer is difficult to open.

Incorrect defrost cycle or your door seals are leaking.
To test the door seals, use a piece of news paper close the door with the news paper in between of the door and seal.
If you can pull it through really easy then the seal is at fault if not then check your cooling fan in the freezer section it should be running.

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees

Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

I have a hotpoint csx27h side by side refrigerator. the freezer get cold but the fridge part just started to where it wouldnt cool down. any suggestions? maybe the defrost?? the only things i have noticed...

check the operation of your damper door between the freezer and refrige compartments,this door opens and closes to throttle cold air from freezer to refrigerator compartment through the cold control,sometimes they freeze upand can't move,sounds like your door has frozen closed,if so,remove entire damper door unit,clean and deice,replace and see if this rectifies your troubles

Hotpoint freezer fan noise?

First check that you do not have a bagged item in front of it. I have done this myself - so is easy to do. The plastic bag touches the fan - making a noise.

Next - check freezer is defrosted regularly.

The fan is used to remove the moisture in the freezer when the door is first closed - freezing it to the evaporator coils - to be safely removed later.

My frdge compartment is freezing

I really need more information. Like exact model number of said refrigerator. Here are some good tips. There may be a vent that leads to the freezer, if so close it. Second question is place a thermoeter on the top shelf in a glass of water for 4 hours, what is the temp. Do the same thing on the shelf that is freexing. If the tempatrues are equal turn up the tempature again. If not the circulation in the compartment is blocked. Make sure the the back of the carptmen has a gap to let air circulate vertically. Modern refriderators use air circulation to help reduce energy costs from compressors overworking. 
Thanks PJ

Freezer door rubbing

take the freezer door off and put a washer or two on the bottom hinge. sometimes there are extra plastic washers on the top hinge that you can move to the bottom to lift it up.
also check if the hinge is bent or loose, as this may cause the problem.
