worthwhile checking closer. noisy fan can be due to fan blade hitting ice if there has been a build-up. otherwise needs replacing

SOURCE: fan not working on fridge section of Hotpoint Fridge Freezer Model FFA90

the problem is there is a build up of ice insid of the freezer .
What you need to do is take out all your draws in the freezer and you will see a plastic backing held on with about 8 screws . undo all the screws and the back should come aay and you will see all the ice built up . just use a hair drier to melt the ice and that should cure your problem.

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

SOURCE: flashing lights super chill super freeze

this machine has a lot of bad reviews due to them over icing in the rear of the freezer,firstly try defrosting for 48 hrs as the ice is encased with polystyrene taking a long time to defrost,also apparently they have a valve that can be upgraded if you contact hotpoint,and lastly if it ever does run correctly then only fill the drawers so that the food is level (no more)with the top of drawer as this will reduce airflow in the frostfree section,good luck

Everything on top shelf of fridge freezes even on lowest temperature


you should send model number,if you have a damper control in your model most likely this is the problem,all that happens is cold air blows over from the freezer from the evaporator fan and blows through the top section of the fridge side,if the damper door isn't closing all the way it will cause freezing in the fridge section.

Water Leak


1) make sure the drain on the floor in the back inside is clear of food and not fill with frozen water. If it is, pour hot water through it to clear.
2) that drain hose drains water down to a pan under the unit that should be evaporating from the heat of the compressor, but lately with all the humidity we've had, it may be playing catch up with itself.
3 Keep doors closed as much as possible
4) check and make sure door seals are tight.

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer comparment will freeze OK, but fridge does not get cold.


If the freezer is working properly, and the fridge is not, it is usually the evaporator fan. It should be located behind the back panel in the freezer. Usually, a fan blade is stuck, or the motor is stuck on it's bearing. You may need to reposition the fan or apply some oil to the bearing. If you cannot get the fan to spin, you might need a new fan motor. Check the voltage first before buying a new motor. You should get around 110V AC .

Is the back wall full of frost? If so you have a defrost problem, most likely the defrost is stuck in the run mode. this is located above the controls area in the fridge.
