Hotpoint FFA60 - Freezer Fan not working


It sounds as if the fan motor itself has failed, & without the fan, only the coils will get cold. A replacement can be obtained from any appliance parts store, or from Hotpoint...check the website. If you are not experienced in appliance repair, I suggest you call a repair person , as some of the fans can be difficult to replace, & it is easy to cause additional damage.

Hotpoint RFA70 fridge freezer - refrigerator drain blocked. Have tried boiling water; bleach; p;unging and poking. Defrosted a month ago fixed problem but is back again.


I just cleared a blockage in ours using about 6 drinking straws all attached together ( squeeze end and push about 30mm inside the next one) a small funnel insulation taped to the end and pushed right down the hole until it stops. Then pour hot water into the funnel until it clears. Remember to keep the funnel as high as possible and the hot water being poured in will push any cold water back up the tube, melt the ice and clear the blockage.

We have a hotpoint RLA 34 ( MICROBAN ) FRIDGE . water keeps seeping into the bottom , under the crisper box tried turnining temp down , made sure it's level , no blocked drainage hole . door shuts tight...


You said no blocked drainage hole, where was the drainage hole that you checked located? Did you pour water down this drain, and furthermore did you check that the water you poured into the drain flowed into the condensate pan on the outside of the fridge? Unless you have a problem with an ice maker leaking water, it sounds very much like you do have a blocked drainage hole, otherwise known as a defrost drain. the drain system begins underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer, this is where the water that is collected in the defrost cycle flows into a drain tube that leads the water down to the condensate pan. The best and safest way to clear out this drain is to blow it out with compressed air, after you remove any and all ice at the beginning of the drainage system, in other words, the hole located underneath the evaporator coil.

Temperatures not staying cold, then getting too cold. First everything in freezer thawed out. Then, fridge wasn't cold enough. We moved everything to freezer just to keep colder (not to freeze). Then, days...


assuming fan now working. clean out vents/ drain holes (make sure no ice in bottom of freezer or in fridge unit)i.e. a total defrost.then check door seals all okay(no air leaks) if unit was trying to defrost itself and you reset to colder it will need to reset itself.....

Hotpoint csx22d side by side has leak under freezer side @ door...coming from wiring harness that runs up into bottom of freezer maybe??????


This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .

Fridge that is leaking


Remove the back panel of the freezer . Use a hairdryer on the drain (aluminum enclosure) to defrost the ice .Once you see the drain hole , keep defrosting hole until only water in the hole . Use a small hose and blow into the hole to blow out any debris . Using an aluminum fence post holder about 6" long , put into hole and wrap about 1" around the calrod heater . This will transfer heat to the hole to keep it from freezing up .

Ice collecting under bottom of Freezer drawer/ seal round door intact/ food staying frozen/ Ice is cleared periodically but then builds up again


Your defrost drain hole is clogged. Look for the drain hole in the bottom rear of the freezer section. Turn off the fridge. Heat the drain hole with a hair dryer and clear the ice. Pour a quarter cup of bleach into the hole.

We have a free standing bosch fridge/freezer, the freezer is at the bottom. Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer, underneath the last drawer.


sounds like the drain hole in the back of the freezer has blocked and when the defrost kicks in the water is not running out of the drain hole but into the bottom of the freezer. best do a full defrost and if it occurs again the drain hole will need to be cleared out.

Hotpoint Ultima Fridge/Freezer keeps leaking underneath


yes this is probably the source of the problem - the defrost water doesn't flow down the drain.

melt the blockage with hot water till you get free flow down the drain - takes a bit of patience
