Question about Hotpoint 6.92 cu. ft. / 196 liter Upright Freezer FZM80

Open Question

We have a fza84 silver upright hotpoint freezer. A couple of weeks ago it displayed the hight temperature indicator and wasn't clicking in to cool itself. The contents remained frozen for a couple of days then started thaw which indicated the freezer was unable to maintain the correct temp. we emptied it and left it. A few days later the light went off and all seemed resolved. We have re stocked it and now just over a week later it is displaing the high temp indicator and everthing is starting to thaw again. very frustrating. This freezer is only 3 years old.

SOURCE: Kenmore commercial upright freezer not sealing well - thawing

If the door seal does not seal completely, replace it. This is very important for freezers.

SOURCE: Freezer not working at all, totally WARM.

Compressor not running? have we got power yes, red light on so we must now decide if the stat is us or the comp is a problem. It must have been a hard week for you, get a freezer geezer to give it a once over.

What price new? to replace against a replacement comp if needed. could be an overload reley if there is one but its rare, good luck.

Hotpoint freezer FZA84 does not freeze ,high temperature light is on. when switched on the temperature comes down to about -12 C . does not come any lower but i hear a irregular hissing sound probably


You need to cut it off. You may be doing a lot of damage there. If this freezer is 8-10 years old, you may want to go ahead and replace it. At least it will not give you any more problems.

You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.



This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

Freezer Problem


If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.

Freezer cycling on and off rapidly


If it still maintaining temperature but is short cycling your control for the temperature is wearing out causing the short cycling. This is a replaceable part that can be obtained through a dealer or appliance parts supplier. By lower setting do you mean lower number on the control, or lower temperature setting? Normally the higher the number the colder the temperature.
