Hotpoint FFA90 fridge freezer, fridge not cooling but freezer OK, was told vent proabaly blocked and to de-ice. Turned appliance off for two days, turned back on worked fine for 1 week but now fridge is...


i have the same problem. took apart the vent in the fridge at the top and thought maybe it needed replacing as that controls the amount of cold coming up from the freezer, but there doesn't seem to be any cold coming through. does anyone know if this is 'blown' through by a fan of some sort?

Freezer not freezing, fridge seems too cold


If the refrigerator is in the house and the temperature in side is between 60 and 80 it should be able to hold good temperatures. If it is in a garage or outside it will not work as well.

If it is inside the first thing to try is resetting the controls. Turn the Fresh food control to a low setting and the freezer setting to maximum. Wait 24 hours and recheck. If this does not work you will need to replace the cold control. To find the part number you will need the complete model number located on the tag.

Hotpoint sidebyside--freezer back panel has ice on it.


It could be the defrost timer the defrost heater or the defrost termostat You can check the heaters for continuity or when the freezer is all cover with ice turn the timer (located in the cold control box inside the refrigerator ) untill the compresor stops and if the heaters start glowing the timer is bad.

Make sure the freezer fan motor is running. Remove the rear panel in the freezer and check for frozen coils. If coils are frozen replace the defrost heater and thermostat.

Freezer cold, fridge warm


Hi, You have a self defrosting problem.
Remove the rear inside freezer panel and check continuity on the defrost element and bi-metal switch.The bi-metal has to be tested cold. If there is continuity on both parts, you will need to change the defrost timer.
The most common part that goes bad is the element. I hope this helps you. Please leet me know if I can assist you further.

Hotpoint CTF15ELD top freezer refrigerator - freezer O.K. refrig too warm


It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.

Refrigerator not cooling


Check in the freezer section by removing the food exposing the rear inside panel. DO you see frost beginning to build upon the rear inside panel of your freezer section? If so, the is a simple defrost problem and can be repaired easily. For testing purpose, st both control to the middle setting and do not move them during the entire testing period. Moving the controls only makes things worse.... Let me know what you find....

Waiting to hear from you,
