I have a Hotpoint FFA61, which is around 2 years old. The fridge is so cold it is freezing the food including liquids. I have turned the temperature right down to 0 but it is so cold that there is a layer of ice at the back. I have defrosted it, I switched it off and left it overnight, but when I plugged it back in it froze again. I called out a professional who said that I needed a new PCB module board, so I bought one and fitted it, but it is still freezing. Can anyone help??

since its been 2 yrs , there might be a problem with the condenser , the gas would have been empty, so its better if you get it checked by a technician, and refill the condenser.

Hi.. feel the dividing rdge between fridge and freezer.. is it warm?.. chances are that the little fan at the back of the fridge freezer that helps cool the compressor, has snagged own it's own wire... it's a weak fan, like you get in a computer, but it does a lot of work.. without it, the coolent does not do it's job, which results in your device not cooling things properly
the thick brown liquid is decomposing moss, from the condensate inside the unit finding a way out.(think of it as the same stuff you get around a shower tray)clean out the fridge using clorine bleach and dry thoroughly....leave the door open for the clorine to gas off otherwise it will taint the food.when the smell has gone then close door and switch on.(some people use milton fluid,but clorine kills all known germs....)
Good day, After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage. As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.
you gotta send model number,there are different things that can cause this,if the freezer is on top,the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge in the center of the top shelf so if any food is near this it will freeze if the air isn't monitored, check the settings first,it could be set to high, there's a cold control or thermostat that monitors how much air comes into the fridge and when it reaches a certain temp it shuts off but it sounds like your having a problem with it,also on some fridges they have a damper that can mess up,there's a door on it that doesn't close and the cold air just keeps coming into the fridge and things start freezing up
Hello, Your problem is going to be with your cold control/Thermostat this can be located in the control console inside the refridgerator. This part needs to be replaced, the part number is WR9X10042 Good Luck!! if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike
First, clean it the unit out and fully defrost. Clean the condenser coils. Don't pack in so much food, don't open the door too frequently. Never block any air channels. Never leave uncapped liquids in the fridge or freezer. Set the fridge at about 40 degrees...use an outdoor thermometer. Freezer at about 0-5F.
