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

The get a piece of say hanger wire and clean this pour some hot water from a kettle down it and then start your fridge up again. that should sort your problem out ... if not then its either a sensor or a board fault...

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 freezer FZA84 does not freeze ,high temperature light is on. when switched on the temperature comes down to about -12 C . does not come any lower but i hear a irregular hissing sound probably


You need to cut it off. You may be doing a lot of damage there. If this freezer is 8-10 years old, you may want to go ahead and replace it. At least it will not give you any more problems.

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

I have a hotpoint frostfree freezer that is over


Since this is a frost free refrigerator/freezer, you shouldn't need to defrost it, and the frost should not be building as you describe.

If your OK with diagnostic troubleshooting techniques, and have a volt-ohm meter and know how to use it, we can figure out whats wrong with your unit.

Top half not freezing


If this is not a frost free unit , it probably has a freon leak. This is usually not worth fixing in a deep freeze. If it is a frost free unit the fan could be bad. This is an easy repair.
