Thanks to this site and previous writers - my fridge freezer is working fine now.
My freezer was working normally but the fridge did not at all.I opened the back of the freezer section to reveal the filament all iced up as previously recommended ( many thanks) -rememeber there are 2 white covers to remove. PlEASE DO NOT chip away the ice as you will accidently chip the metal and break the filament . I did that once with another freezer and gas came out and therefore broke it- be patient and safer and use a hair dryer.
I am month 8 of 12 month warranty- should i contact hotpoint and complain what seems like a design fault? i would recommend feedback.

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

I'm sorry to have to tell you that this sounds like a very expensive fault to fix!
Either your fridge/freezer has degassed (lost the refridgerant gas) through a small leak in the pipe system behind or inside the freezer compartment, OR the compressor (what you called the motor) has started to fail.
Either way, these are very expensive repair jobs. It's possible to replace the compressor within about an hour, but if your model is out of guarantee, there will be around a £50/60 Call-out charge and the compressor will cost between £75 and £150 depending on the model.
Alternatively, if the fridge/freezer has lost gas, the engineer would have to try to find the leak - this could be IMPOSSIBLE if the leak is within the pipework inside the back of the fridge or above/below the freezer compartment.
I'm sorry to say that it's looking like you may have to part with a lot of money - or say goodbye to the fridge/freezer you have!
