Hotpoint... | Answered on Jan 26, 2019


flashing red light indicates it's too warm in the freezer.Check the compressor to make sure it is running? if it is then your low on freon.Check if fan near the compressor is running?If still the problem persist switch off the freezer for 24 hours and check for it is fully defrosted.This warm in freezer occurs due to block in air flow due to defrost of ice.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

clean the door rubbers and sides this sometimes fixes the problem as the seals are not closing properly and the fridge freezer thinks you have left the door open.

kevinmdoyle... Hello and welcome to FIXYA,

Yours is a UK model... so I (usa) can't help you
on SPARES (motor start capacitor) ... however

Circuit breakers do go bad...!!
(easiest & cheapest to check first)

MUCH Easier to test the idea than you would imagine:
- Shut OFF your main breaker.
- Open your panel & swap the wire with an EQUAL breaker
- Tag the wires (to restore when finished trouble shooting)
- Restore the main breaker (wait & see)...

and don't forget to clean that CONDENSOR
per owner manual instructions.

If the failure persists... RESORE the BREAKERS.
HOPE it is the START CAPACITOR on your compressor.

Hotpoint is made by GE so it may break down soon.

I would check the thermostat, and check for loss of gas.

Sounds like a stopped up defrost drain.

Check with Hotpoint / GE and inform them of your concerns.

Check to see if the condenser coil needs to be cleaned. And make sure the condenser fan is running

Always disconnect power before attempting to repair any electrical appliance
