Question about Hotpoint FFM70 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
There is always a puddle of water in the bottom of the fridge under the vegetable drawers. Sometimes this gets frozen if the fridge is turned down too much. Does it need defrosting and how do I go about this?
My own fridge had this problem and it turned out to be a blocked drain at the back of the fridge compartment, just below the cold plate. The water is supposed to condense on the plate and run down to a drip channel, and then through a tube onto the top of the compressor, where it evaporates.
On mine, the tube was blocked with gunge so the water spilled over onto the bottom of the compartment. I got a length of earth wire - the sort used for wiring UK domestic ring mains - and poked it down the tube to clear the gunge away. I then chased it through with some hot water and washing soda and it has been fine ever since.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge.
