It is better to defrost the unit, and much better to clean the ref. do the cleaning esp on the fan area, which could something was has to be removed and clean there, and could be the one causing the fan to be noisy during operating..

let me know..

    For you to find out
    if the fan is causing the noise

    1. Just open the freezer door and push in
      any fan/light switches.

    2. If the noise is louder when the door is open,
      the evaporator fan motor is the cause.

    3. You can't lubricate or repair
      this motor. You must replace it.
    Hope this initial info/idea helps you..

    Kindly rate my solutions if this one solves/helps you correct the problem..

    Thank you

My guess is that it is the fan motor

Sounds like it is pun intended! ;)

could you please let me know if it is difficult to replace and where to get the needed parts

Power off first!...fairly easy to remove...the fan motor is behind the back wall in the freezer. Motor, dc freezer (evaperator) fan (

Call out the warranty supplier. Where is the noise coming from? If no warranty, check the electrics to the compressor and fan. sometimes the noise is the fan. Also switch off overnight and leave doors open. When restarting, if the noise has gone it will have been the internal fan hitting on ice buildup.

Hotpoint quadrio fridgefreezer 2 years old ,not cooling and not freezing,motor was running but has now also stopped,someone surgested moduel was broke any surgestions

These types of refrigerators usually have cooling issues related to defective defrost heaters and failed evaporator fans. I don't believe the compressor has failed. The compressor has a run capacitor and a separate klixon, contact, and fuse attached to the compressor shell that has a tendency of failing. I would check that. It usually makes a clicking sound, but the compressor will not start.

No power to freezer fan on hotpoint ffa91

On some of theses units the fans are connected through the defrost bi metal. When the bi metal gets cold the fan comes on. Check and replace bi metal. Should solve your issue.

The fridgefreezer has power but no cooling or freezing

Most likely there is low voltage to the unit or the compressor is bad. Is the condenser coil very dirty and if this unit has a condenser fan does it run?

My frost Free Hotpoint FFA91 keeps freezing in the freezer. I take the back off (from in side the freezer) and the bottom of the element is frozen solid. If I defrost it then it will be the same again in...

Sounds like you have either a bad defrost heater or a bad defrost control timer, however I can not provide part numbers, as I can not find any model numbers which begin with FFA91

My Hotpoint Ultima CTD80 condensed dryer liquid crystal display is flickering and not illuminating. Can this be easily repaired withoutcalling out an engineer. The dryer is only 12 months old.

ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!


For this problem you will need to use factory service!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.
1(800) 905-9505

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You
Bless you,ngfam1
