The freezer has not gone into defrost there is a time clock inside or the defrost heaters are not working the fan will not blow the cold air into the fridge because its blocked up with ice the best thing to do is remove the food from your freezer (ie) put into another freever if you can unplug your fridge/freezer leave it off for 12 hrs thi will defrost and reset then turn it back on this will come back to life put your food back and keep a eye on it you may have to do this again once in a while because there is so much ice build up the heaters cant cope it only defrosts once or twice a day in a 24 hr period for only 1 hr it might be 2 half hrs in 24 hrs depending on the time clock you have they did change to digital towards the end of the minstral line

Possible that there is block on the air passage from the freezer fan which can be due to frost or failure of the fan.You need to check if there is free flow from the fan, also the setting of the fridge temperature.

Hotpoint mistral plus


Sounds like a faulty thermostat, although fast freeze usually bypasses the stat so should then get to temperature. If the compressor and condenser are getting very hot and all is clean, check there isn't a condenser fan stuck underneath that is seized. If not, may have had a bit of a refrigerant leak and sucked a bit of air into the system. Call an engineer

I just need instructions on how to set the temperature on my mistral fridge freezeer, please


please be aware that the temperature for the freezer compartment cannot be changed, this is pre set at the time of manufacture, only the fridge can be altered. The main reason for problems with zoned temperatures are to do with the compressor over heating. Unfortunately Hotpoint designed the compressor to switch itself off if the ambient (room) temperature exceeds a pre set figure. This in turn will obviously then lead to an increase in the temperatures of your fridge and freezer. I'm afraid the only solution to this problem is to relocate the whole unit to somewhere much cooler, especially during the hotter weather. This should in time sort the problem out. Also double check that the grill at the very bottom on the front, is not blocked up with dust etc.

Hotpoint Mistral Fridge Freezer, freezer working fine at -22 degrees, however, fridge has stopped working and is on +19 degrees. Had an E8 error message a few weeks ago which was quick fixed with a turn on...


Evaporator thermistor is on the radiator located at the back of the fridge. Older fridges had a big on aircooled along the entire back of the fridge whilst the newer ones have it under the fridge with a fan cooling it. 90% of the time the fan gives up causing this type of issue.

My hotpoint mistral fridge/freezer is freezing very will, but ther fridge is not cooling. What could be wrong?


Hi. I had the same problem (funnily just as my warranty had run out) hotpoint wanted about £90 plus parts for a call out. You need to replace the Yellow thermistor in the freezer compartment (quite easy with a cross screwdriver and thin fingers). I got mine from Uk White Goods for about £20 they give advice too. Solved it instantly. Thanks HOTPOINT, wont be spending £600 with you again. Good Luck.
