Question about Hotpoint FFA90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice forming on bottom of freezer section

Hi, I have a Hotpoint FFA90, and ice is forming at the bottom of the freezer section. It looks as though water is coming through the vent just above the bottom shelf and then freezing, as there is a trail of ice, (like water trickling), down the left hand side of the bottom rear of the freezer. Any help to stop this would be most grateful. Thank in advance.

The freezer should have a drain hole for the defrost water to flow through. This will drain into a pan outside of the freezer cabinet. If this drain tube becomes blocked it will not allow the water to drain out and it will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer section. You will have to verify that the drain is clear through to the drain pan. this can be done carefully with a piece of stiff wire. There should also be some sort of a water trap on the drain tube to prevent air from entering the freezer compartment through the drain tube.

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.

My fridge-freezer (FFM90) has ice forming in the bottom of the freezer section under the last drawer. Why is that and what can I do?

This is due to excessive condensation and in bottom freezers due to proximity of the compressor.There is some residual water falling on to the drawers which forms the ice and this must be prevented. make sure that the frozen foods that was stocked did not loose water into the bottom till we can suspect the freezer. Also frequent opening of the freezer will allow for condensation whicj must be wiped out at intervals.
This can prevent some ice formation and also check if there is leak from the evaporator trays to the freezer during defrosting.

Hotpoint FFA90 fridge freezer, fridge not cooling but freezer OK, was told vent proabaly blocked and to de-ice. Turned appliance off for two days, turned back on worked fine for 1 week but now fridge is...

i have the same problem. took apart the vent in the fridge at the top and thought maybe it needed replacing as that controls the amount of cold coming up from the freezer, but there doesn't seem to be any cold coming through. does anyone know if this is 'blown' through by a fan of some sort?

Fan not working on fridge section of Hotpoint Fridge Freezer Model FFA90

the problem is there is a build up of ice insid of the freezer .
What you need to do is take out all your draws in the freezer and you will see a plastic backing held on with about 8 screws . undo all the screws and the back should come aay and you will see all the ice built up . just use a hair drier to melt the ice and that should cure your problem.
