SOURCE: frost in "frost-free" freezer

Hi, This is my suggestion to check the defrost timer. "I would suspect the defrost timer. Remove everything and place in coolers or another refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. With doors open let it sit for aprox 6 hrs. A fan blowing into the freezer section will help. Plug back in and see if it works good again. If it works good for a couple of days and problem returns, Replace the defrost timer." Sound like you have already done my little test so the defrost timer needs replaced. NOTE: Refrigerators are well insulated and it takes several hours to completely defrost one so you may want to try it again. Also, I believe the clicking you hear is the fan blade hitting ice. Hope this helps. Let me know. kstfas

My hotpoint freezer fza84 light is on?


Meaning it is on when door is closed, how do you know? Generally there is only one reason, the pressure switch is defective, and they pop out easily, so pressing it manually will disclose if switch is faulty if lite does not turn off and on while depressing, sometimes you can fix switches by cleaning contacts.

Hotpoint ffp18 frost free , not working ? This freezer stands in cold garage would this affect working if outside temperature is cold ?


That would not stop it from working unless it was cold enough to be keeping the unit from calling for the 'run' cycle, what temps around the product are you seeing ?

Fridge freezer . only the fridge works its a frost free unit hotpoint first edition


one of two things could be a problem . 1 short of refrigerant 2 the evaporator in the freezer could have a thick covering of Ice or frost both of which will act as an insulator causing the refrigerant to flow through as a liquid rather than expanding to a vapour if this is the case this is a reaction to something else which will be the fault eg covered in ice could be the drain is blocked the water doesnt run away so it freezes could be door seal, could be faulty fan in freezer

Freezer not freezing


when the freezer is not freezing, check the fan and fan motor in the freezer section. It should be running when the compressor is running. Check for frost. If you see frost on the rear inside panel, the frost is usually about 3 in. thick on the inside. Check and make sure the fan next to the compressor is running, if your's has one. It will run when the compressor is running. Check for gaps in your door gasket. If there is no frost, both fans are running, compressor is running, and no gaps, and your coils outside the refrigerator are clean, it doesn't sound good.

The red light remains on...


The coils should have a nice white frost pattern evenly on the coils (no solid ice block sort of thing). If there is very little frost, or say just chunk of ice in one spot, then you may have a leak in the system where the refrigerant has leaked out. The fan above the coils should be on when the compressor is running to circulate the cold air. It does sound like you may have a sealed system leak and there's just not enough refrigerant to flash into a gas for proper cooling. Check on these items and get back to us.
