Question about Hotpoint FFA60 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge is freezing food

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??

    Thanks for your advice. I was told that the particular model that I have doesn't have a thermostat, the temerature is controlled by the PCB module board (located on the front of the f/f at the top). I have replaced it, but still have the prob.

    FFA71 I have exactly the same problem with my Hotpoint FFA71 fridge freezer. The temp warning light is on for the freezer and everything has defrosted, but all the stuff in the fridge is frozen solid.

Fridge freezing up


Check the fridge sensor. On my Hoover HNMF2805AL80 f/f, first I replaced control module - still freezing.
Have just replaced cheap fridge temperature sensor. Part No. 97061619. Trouble is you have to cut into insulation at back of fridge to replace. I just plugged in sensor & placed inside fridge at back at the bottom - so far so good, only lettuce freezing now, everything else v. cold but not frozen. :)

Freezer not freezing, fridge seems too cold


If the refrigerator is in the house and the temperature in side is between 60 and 80 it should be able to hold good temperatures. If it is in a garage or outside it will not work as well.

If it is inside the first thing to try is resetting the controls. Turn the Fresh food control to a low setting and the freezer setting to maximum. Wait 24 hours and recheck. If this does not work you will need to replace the cold control. To find the part number you will need the complete model number located on the tag.

Hotpoint fridge - temperature problem


Somewhere there's another knob that controls the position of a damper that balances cold between the freezer and the refrigerator. Despite where the knob is, the thermostat is probably controlling the freezer temp. The damper controls how much cold from the freezer gets to the refrigerator.

You need to adjust that knob to divert less cold air into the refrigerator section.

It's also possible the damper has gotten stuck and can't be moved, in which case you may need a repair tech.

Will my mothers new fridge freezer work out in the garage


This is from the hotpoint web site.

If the room temperature drops below 14°C for an
extended period of time, the ideal temperature will not
be reached in the freezer compartment and food
preservation will be reduced.

You can read the manual here if it will help you.

Ffa70 hotpoint fridge freezer


Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
