Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Suddenly stopped functioning. The fridge light is on and if I turn the fridge freezer off and then on again, I can hear the motor start up. I'm guessing it could be the thermostat!. If you agree with the diagnosis, could you please let me know the part number and where to locate it in the appliance. Many Thanks Chris Paradise

Fridges stops working randomly but the freezer works. Then the fridge starts working after a couple of days


When the fridge stops working, can you hear the fan operating inside the unit? It sounds like you have a failing evaporator fan motor. This fan motor circulated cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

I have a Beko frost free fridge freezer kept in a garage that has all of a sudden just stopped working. I noticed that the bread I'd put in the freezer hadn't frozen and then noticed that the fan had...


If the fan has failed or intermittent, the freezer wont freeze the food properly but usually you get a mountain of ice build up at the back of the freezer. This ice jams and stops the fan from turning. Alternatively, there could be a defrost problem. Unless it is a fully electronic defrost machine, there is usually a little timer on the back of the fridge to force a defrost after a certain time. The fridge will turn off, the defrost heater operates to melt the ice and then usually with 20 to 45 minutes, the defrost timer will "click" back on and start the fridge running again. If the timer is sticking, the fridge may stay on its defrost cycle and never start again, thus, it doesn't get cold. If you find the defrost timer, have a close look for a little shaft or slotted screw type stud sticking out of the middle of it. A slight turn of this and you should hear it clicking around. When you hear a loud click, that is either the start or end of the defrost cycle. If you have a full electronic defrost system, it may be a failed board, heater, thermostat or defrost safety fuse.

Hotpoint RFA52 fridge freezer


if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

The fridge side by side door. Freezer & fridge stop working I can hear the motor trying to go but doesn't cool


When you say motor I assume compressor. No start compressors can be an electrical component like the start relay or the compressor itself. Eric

My Fridge/Freezer is turning itself on and off!!!


I think your motherboard of your fridge is going bad. If that is so, then its better to just get a new fridge than tryin to fix it. the motherboard is expensive and this is the brains of the fridge
