    The alarm keeps going off at random intervals. Everything seems to be working OK. Peter

SOURCE: I have a hotpoint fridge

I have tried the above solution without success. The only solution to the problem that works is to empty the fridge/freezer switch it off and allow it to do a full defrost. Then switch it on again. This appears to have sorted the problem

I have a PowerPoint TRF295 and never took any interest in the temperature settings. I wanted to adjust it but,I don't know which side of the panel is for the fridge and which is for the freezer.Thanks

Hi. Can't make it out in the photo but if they are negative degrees C in the red then your freezer control is on the left.
The ideal temperature setting for a refrigerator is 3?C and for a freezer it's -18?C

You will need to unplug and defrost the fridge for a few hours then replug the power. Leaving the doors open allows moisture to freeze on the evaporator while compressor continues to run confusing the control board

Have a fridge freezer trf295 no model indicated. Need to get my hand on a manual. One problem is that the plug for the fridge is behind it don't know what setting fridge or freezer should be at ???

It looks like it might be a badged Sears Special.

The dials in fridges usually go from zero (defrost) to 9. Ideally you want the setting between 4 and 6. Buy yourself two fridge thermometers, they are cheap. Your freezer needs to be minus 16 - minus 18' Centigrade. Your fridge needs to be 2 - 4'C. The thermometers have a green area showing the range. Here is an example.

Try this also:

Super freeze 5 seconds set desired temp press super frees briefly again then adjust the wine cooler temp press super freeze again briefly, Next press menu and select normal. Then press menu again. To exit press super freeze again until it no longer blinks.

i had the same problem the sensor starts at the back of the pcb and snakes its way dow the back of the fridge into the freezer conpartment i ordered a new sensor thinking it was a temp sensor but turned out to be a defrost sensor compleat and utter hassel to fit due to the expanding foam i had to eventualy cut the block off that conects to the pcb and then reconecting it once i got the cable through the foam first 2 days seamed to work fine while there was nothing in it as soon as i put food in it again the fridge started to freeze everything again then about a week later it still ices up at the back the fridge but doesnt seam to freeze the food so much now so still unsure about it all
btw it was the exact same model and before i changed the sensor the light and the super light used to flash on and off
