Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
Won't help you now at this late stage but I also have a Hotpoint FZM 80 freezer. The top drawer, then top 2 started defrosting slowly. Freezer overtemp light never appeared but eventually I thought I was going to have to buy a new one so having lost nothing I decided to have a look. Took the drawers out and the back panel is held in with about eleven 8mm hex head screws. Had a little difficulty pulling the bottom part of the plastic back away from the freezer as it was stuck with ice.
I suspect this is what was happening with yours and the ice was expanding, pushing the back out.
The ice had formed from the bottom half of the condenser to the bottom of the fridge, blocking the hole where the moisture should drain to then evaporate on a tray above the warm compressor. Buried deep in this ice was the temperature sensor. Thus the freezer stopped cooling because it thought it was very cold already. Now defrosted with a hairdryer it's all OK again.
Shame Hotpoint didn't put the sensor higher in the freezer.
