Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint Fridge Freezer FFS70. The top two drawers of the freezer will not slide completely in so that the door will not shut properly. If I take out these drawers, the door shuts firmly.

    It seems as though the back panel has moved forward a fraction and this is stopping the drawers from fully closing. The tracks are cleaned and there is nothing in these drawers.

check that the part that the drawers slide into is in its proper position. try lifting up on door to shut. if this works u may have a broken cam riser. or u may be able to put a washer or two on hinge to raise door up for better clearance.

Freezer door will not shut whilst drawers are in

Do you have an icemaker?  Be sure the ice maker drawer is in all the way.  This means pulling out the drawer and being sure the gears are lined up properly with the crank located in the back of the freezer.  If they are misaligned the drawer sticks out 1/2 inch (even though it feels firmly seated when you push on it) and the result is a freezer door that will not stay shut.  Believe me, this is experience talking.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

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.
