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

Hi our CB18M/1c/FAN keeps gathering water under the salad trays please advice thankyou


You say it runs down the channels.
Is their a drain hole at the bottom?
If the drain hole is blocked then you will need to unblock it using compressed air or a thin piece of medium flexible wire.
It should drain to a pan near the compressor and evaporaste from
there. Sometimes a loose particle of food can block the drain, usually at the back lower position of the fridge.

My fridge temprature constantly keeps going up even after turning on the supper.


Something new is blocking the airway from the freezer to the fridge. Check the freezer, look for vents that have been blocked. If it has been blocked too long, ice can build up in passageways in the freezer that are hard to get to. Maybe the fan got jammed, you should hear it when the freezer door is closed. It usually stops when the freezer door is open, but if you push the switch it should run.

Hotpoint RFA70 fridge freezer - refrigerator drain blocked. Have tried boiling water; bleach; p;unging and poking. Defrosted a month ago fixed problem but is back again.


I just cleared a blockage in ours using about 6 drinking straws all attached together ( squeeze end and push about 30mm inside the next one) a small funnel insulation taped to the end and pushed right down the hole until it stops. Then pour hot water into the funnel until it clears. Remember to keep the funnel as high as possible and the hot water being poured in will push any cold water back up the tube, melt the ice and clear the blockage.

FP E381T, lights won't stop flashing, fridge not cooling properly


There is another fan to draw air into fridge compartment- access via fridge: remove back panel (long plastic cover- just clips off). Remove control housing (again, just clips off- careful of wiring though). Fan is located up in this channel between fridge and freezer compartments. However, from what you are describing, I think you have a blockage in the freezer drain, causing a build up of ice in the freezer which blocks the air flow to fridge.  To check, remove rear panel of freezer (clips off- you need to press down two clips at top of panel, they can be tricky to get off!!). Disconnect fan motor wiring by unclipping plug connection, and remove sensor wire(white wire) so panel can be removed completely. Now have a look in the trough underneath the evaporator, and check for ice buil up- there should be no ice in this trough. If it is iced up, you need to defrost ice and then pour some water in the trough and see if it runs away. In the middle of the trough there is a small hole where the water should run down and away to collector tray at rear of fridge- if this hole is blocked, water won't run away, so builds up and freezes and blocks air flow to fridge. If hole is blocked, poke a wire down to unblock.
If in doubt, call in the experts- F+P fridges can be a bit fiddly getting apart, as everything clips together ( I worked for F+P for 10 years, and I still sometimes have problems getting panels off easily!!)
Good Luck!!

Fridge drain is overflowing into base of fridge, causing build-up of ice over base, which then 'sticks' the salad boxes to the base of the fridge, making them difficult to draw out. I have to scrape the...


Some insect would have gone into the drain pipe and blocked the outlet for the water to flow and it gets collected inside.

First please clean the drain pipe and remove any block.

Defrost your refrigerator at least once in three days.

Excess ice formed in the freezer chamber will result in less cooling and melting of ice and make it run down.

The above remedies should solve your problem

Build up of ice in bottom of freezer compartment


During the defrost cycle heaters in the wall of the freezer are turned on to melt the frost build up. This melted frost "water" is supposed to run out a drain in the bottom of the freezer and collect in a pan under the refrigerator/freezer where it will eventually evaporate. If this drain is blocked it will cause a lot of water to collect in the bottom of the freezer and that water will eventually turn back into ice. I recommend defrosting the freezer manually, removing all the ice/water buildup in the bottom, and trying to unplug the drain line to the pan underneath. Also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it could be letting a lot of moisture enter the freezer which would lead to more frost buildup and more water during the defrost cycle.

Blocked fridge drain


The pan being full doesnt affect the drain being blocked the pans not full anyway its constantly evaporationg it. I use a little air pressure to clear drain lines, than pur a diluted solution of water and a little bleach down the hole water should drain fast and not pool.
