SOURCE: temp control

Most refrigerator settings are in numbers like yours, the higher number will be colder setting.

SOURCE: temperature control knob turns but doesn't change temp.

the heater control valve is visible through the speaker cut-out; it's at the end of the plastic heater control rod, inside the car - not on the other side of the firewall! It's connected to the valve with a plastic "universal joint".

Check that the valve is actually being turned by the rod. The connection might not be good (pulled apart or broken), and or the valve might be stuck.

Hi Iv got a Hotpoint fridge freezer iced diamond rfa52 it keeps switching on and off it seems when the fridge gets warm it turns back on my freezer is not defrosting but the fridge is then freezing again...


Okay, have you adjusted your cold temp knob inside the fridge part? There are two switches one in the freezer and one in the fridge you will need to watch it day by day until the optimum temp setting has been achieved same goes for the freezer if it defrosts that is the exact point where your freezer is at best! It takes patience so be patient and your problem will be solved! Good luck and thanks again for using fixya.com

I have a hotpoint freezer FZS175, the alarm is going off. I've followed the instructions, turned the thermostat to zero, waited, then back to mid-way, pressed the fast freezer button. The freezer


Just had exact same issue with our FZS175 upright Hotpoint freezer - could not reset the alarming state.
Tried defrosting (even though it didn't look like it needed it) but still no change.
Then found the shaft of the little plastic thermostat control knob had sheared off. The only way to tell this has happened is to remove the control panel cover (switch off at mains first of course).
Superglued the broken knob shaft back together, inserting a 1mm steel reinforcing pin (cut from a woodworking panel pin) to prevent it happening again, and all is now well.
I think I am in the wrong profession (British wildlife documentaries)!

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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.

Hotpoint FFA70P Bottom freezer not working


HI The thermostat control is usually mounted inside the refrigerator. Its visible control knob is turned to regulate the refrigerator/freezer temperature. The workability of this control can be tested in various ways, depending on the problem. To test the thermostat control:

Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.
