Question about Hotpoint FFA70 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Yes, It needs a defrost. You will have to take out all the food, unplug it and remove all the shelves and or drawers. Remove the back panel to gain access to the evaporator coil, (make sure you have the proper screw driver or socket first). You will need some towels and a hair drier. Once inside to the coil/fan area, start with your hair drier and melt all the frost/ice out as quickly as you can. Once all is done, start looking for any wires that look out of place or burnt. Your fridge has a defrost timer and a defrost termination switch that is mounted to the coil. Look for a round metal switch that should be clipped on to one of the coils tubes. This much frost/ice build up is due to ether a bad door seal, or the fridge is not defrosting itself proper. Check all this and then put the rear panels back on. clean up the mess. Plug it back in and start it up. You will want to be sure it is cooling ok before you put all your food back in. So put a cup of water on one of the shelves and check it in about hours to see if it has started to freeze. Hope this helps Fixya up.
