    Ours is exactly the same and is also just out of warranty. The compressor is not vibrating, and nothing at the back is getting hot. The fan can be heard (cuts out when you open the fridge/freezer and then restarts once its closed), and warm air is being blown into the freezer compartment. Any help would be much appreciated. The freezer may have been left open very slightly overnight, although I cannot confirm that because when the fridge wasn't working I immediately opened the freezer door without checking to see if it was left ajar or not (if that makes sense). The reason I mention this is because the last thing I did was to get something out of the freezer.



    Thanks

I had the same problem. Hotpoint told me it was the electronic card, and I waited 3 weeks for them to get one in stock. Just been fitted and made no difference, though the Hotpoint man told me it was fixed. I have just spent half an hour "shaking and whaking" various bits at the back of the fridge freezer and the compressor has finally kicked into life.
Concentrate your shaking and whacking on the black square thing to the left of the compressor.

Check to see if the pot at the back of the fridge at the bottom is hot . if it is really hot (i.e you can,t keep your hand on it ) then i,m affraid you have run out of gas and it could be an internal leak which can't be fixed sorry

Hi, my Hotpoint ff200e fridge freezer is cooling but not freezing, compressor wires are warm and compressor itself is quite warm, top fridge is not cooling enough, then the lights on control panel start...

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

Hotpoint RFA52 fridge freezer

if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way
