Hotpoint fridge clicks before starting


You have a possible compressor relay going bad or something like low house power could cause that. Also the mother board could be going bad without seeing any problem. Electronic boards sometimes go bad without being able to actually see it. The compressor part of the board will sometimes burn a spot on the mother board but can only be see on the back solder side.

Hiya,i have a hotpoint fridge freezer ffa91 and the fridge is no longer getting cold.The compressor seems is hot but cant hear the normal noises coming from the fridge.The digital display shows an arrow...


1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

Clicking noise coming from refrigerator


If the "clicking" noise is from a relay on the board or compressor, it's likely th compressor would be cycling on and off.

It could be a fan blade (evaporator or condenser) hitting something. Both fans only run when the compressor is on. This should be addressed ASAP as it could be a wire it's rubbing on.

Finally, the noise could be caused by the refrigerant within the sealed refrigeration system. This noise is more of a nuisance rather than a mechanical failure.

This may be caused by a fanmotor touching something, or one of the copper tubes from the compressor causing a resonant frequency. If you touch the different tubes to find out which one is causing the noise and then slightly bend it with your fingers. That should stop the noise.

If you have a 5 year warranty, you should not take anything apart and consult the place where you got the appliance.
They should be able to tell you exactly what is covered under warranty before they work on it.

Hotpoint not chilling


looks like your compressor is busted. the sound that is not healthy is the compressor trying to start, as you have said, chugging... now everything is hot since the compressor is no longer running. have a qualified tech check it to see if the compressor could still be saved...it might just be a dirty condenser.
