You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.

What setting must my fridge and freezer be at. Thanks


RFA70 settings Controlling the Temperature of the Fridge Compartment The left hand control wheel on the front panel adjusts the internal fridge compartment temperature. The internal temperature should be 5?C or colder, although some sections such as the salad bin will be slightly warmer. The setting of the control wheel will depend on the location of the fridge freezer, the room temperature and how often the door is opened. The normal set point (marked by a 3 on the dial) is usually suitable. If you need to adjust the temperature turn the control wheel using a coin to avoid damage: Clockwise (higher number) - Colder Anti-clockwise (lower number) - Warmer

What temperature should i have my top half fridge of my hotpoint fridge/ freezer as it is too cold and everything is freezing


A good setting is in the middle of the thermostat range. For example, if you have numbers from 1 to 9, 5 would be a good number. If this setting continues to freeze, look for a bad thermostat or temperature thermistor.

Hotpoint rla31 motor constantly running/freezing at the back


Your fridge is cooled by the freezer, the thermostat is within the Fridge to tell it to shut off, you might have a bad fan or a build up of frost where the air is sent to the fridge, check where air goes to the fridge when it's running, if you don't feel air flow then something is up, best thing you can do is take everything out and allow the fridge to defrost, at leat 24hrs. then see what happens, if you don't feel air flow after the defrost then you fan is shot and you'll need to replace it.

My fridge keeps frezing up


There's a little dial or knob to set the temperature of your fridge, just wind it down to about 4 if it has a number setting and that should keep from the contents freezing up.

How do I set the temperature?


Hello Elise, The Dial should be set to the middle number three (3) to start with and allow for 24 hours of running before you make any adjustments, either up or down.

The higher the number the colder the fridge temperature will be. Just remember that it takes almost a full day for the fridge compensate for any changes to the thermostat. Also, only make adjustments in the temperature setting by only 1 increment at a time (either up or down) and again, allow 24 hours before making further changes.

If your fridge has the red button in the center of the temperature dial, that is the manual defrost button. So if you've got a build up of ice on the freezer section, just push it and it will defrost the unit for up 2-4 hours.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
Merry Christmas!

Fridge keeps freezing


Can't solve your problem, but just to report we have exactly the same issue, a huge block of ice forms on the upper rear panel. The compressor seems to be running 24h, not matter where the 'thermostat' is set.

I suspect that there was/are a faulty batch of thermostats. Or (since there is no metal cooling plate to bolt it to) that the T/Stat probe has somehow come adrift from its correct sensing area and is not correctly sensing the temperature inside the fridge.

If I get to the bottom of the problem, I will re-post here.

Defy Fridge temperature dial is confusing - which way is colder?


0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest.  0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.
