Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.

On my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge freezer occasional leaks occur at the bottom of the freezer where ice accumulates. The fridge section above is fine. Any suggestions?

There is one in the freezer section as well. It's a small white tube. I've had the same thing happen with mine. I just took everything out of the freezer, and used hot water. It's caused by condensation buildup in the drain tube, which then freezes, obviously because it is a freezer after all. Hot water usually does the trick. Just be sure to clean it up, and dry it off really well so it doesn't re-freeze and cause the same issue.

Got water leaking from bottom of fridge/freezer on

If you take all the drawers out of the freezer - you will find 8 screws with 'bolt type' heads - 2 top, 4 at sides and 2 to the bottom.

Turn the power off. Undo all these screws and remove the rear panel. You will notice the 'gubbins' of the freezer. At the bottom you should notice there is a shaped plate with some piping running around and then up into the cooling 'radiator'. Towards the middle left of the plate there should be a hole - this is the drain hole. Is it blocked with a 'slug' of ice! Yes is my guess. This needs defrosting as will the rear panel you took out by any guess.

I did ours this morning as the fridge freezer was making a heck of a racket. Took about 30 minutes with the wife's hairdryer - and I'm no expert.

I just enjoy the fact I'd probably saved £50 plus on a callout.
