Hotpoint FFS70 fridge/freezer

Freezer door unfortunately left slightly open and food in freezer started to defrost.  I turned off whole unit left for a day and turned back on again.  It is freezing ok (ice cubes) but the red lights keep coming on. 

 

Unable to find manual so not sure what to do - can I safely put food back in to the freezer?

The light has now been on for over a week - I have put some food back in the freezer and it is staying frozen but feel a little worried to fill it up again.  The red light is stating "Food defrost alert"

This is normal  the red light tells you that there is a slight of decreased in coldness .Eventually the red light will  disappear after the refrigerator has recollected it's coldness... in 24 hours approximately .....Jack Arevian.(.Aleppo Syria).Refrigeration Engineer...........

Away for 3 days, came home, all food in freezer just slush. Fridge OK, freezer dead. not sure why, maybe not quite closed door. Fan in freezer was not working but it has suddenly come to life.

Yes, leaving the door open a little could cause it to defrost. This would also make the fan run more than usual, and the fan might have run so much that the fan temporarily stopped working. This is probably a built-in safety feature of the fan (much like some paper shredders will overheat and not return to operation until you let it cool down or operation environment turns back to normal). Good luck.

WR51X10055 is the part number of the defrost heater and bracket assembly. Item #230 in the diagram. On this unit it is a plug in unit.

It is relatively easy to replace. Remove food from the freezer section, remove shelves, remove back panel. Unplug refrigerator. Defrost the unit by either leaving the door open to the freezer section or you can hurry it up with a hair dryer. After it is defrosted, plug in the new defrost unit, plug the frigerator back in and reattach the back panel, shelves and food.

Top freezer door pops slightly open when frig door is closed

try to adjust hinges and check the door gaskets for pinching. Also I have seen that if the fridge is slightly pitched forward and not slightly towards the back gravity sometimes this causes the problem you describe.

Fridge/Freezer combo - Freezer working fine but fridge is not

There is a duct between the freezer and refrigerator. Sometimes this duct blocks off with ice and won't allow airflow. Open your refrigerator door and check for air flow if there is none the duct needs to be defrosted. turn off freezer/ refrigerator and defrost.

We accidently left the freezer door open during the entire night and now icemaker doesn't dispense on monogram refrigerator, even though ice maker makes ice.

you might want to turn the whole fridge off (remove the food to a safe place) and let the fridge defrost, wipe any water up and retry. If it is under warranty, call GE

Hotpoint FFS70 fridge problem with draws.

Not sure which drawers you are talking about BUT have you tried switching over the two crisper drawers? They are not interchangeable, i.e. there is only one way the will fit inside the fridge.
