Why does my Hotpoint fridge frosts up at the back top and only that section?

This is normally caused by a badly sealing door gasket. It pulls in moist warm air and deposits it near the evaporator. Your manual says it has auto-defrost, so if it is icing up, it means that the defrost timer, or the defrost heater is faulty. Service call or a new one. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/70760/Hotpoint-Rla34.html?page=10#manual ..

FFA45W

Hotpoint FFA47X fridge/freezer. I have had this fridge for 3 years now and has always on regular occasions decided to defrost when it feels like it and asks me to consume all the food immediately! I have wasted massive amounts of money on food and calls to hotpoint and have had a hotpoint engineer out to sort the problem about a year ago. It goes fine for a few months..then it defrosts all over again! Its just done it again, luckily I am not using the freezer anymore it only had some peas in there. Has anyone had this problem and solved it?? I would really like to use my freezer again but am loosing patience with hotpoint! I'd be very grateful for some advice.

My Hotpoint FUFL1810P that keeps beeping and the lights inside are flashing when the door is opened.

Something to think about from the manual for your freezer. Also I would check the temperature of your freezer with a thermometer to make sure it is freezing ok .Troubleshooting If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see Assistance), check for a solution from the following list. The green POWER indicator light does not illuminate. • The plug has not been inserted into the electrical socket, or not far enough to make contact, or there is no power in the house. The motor does not start. • The appliance comes with a motor protection control ( see Start- up and use ). The indicator lights are on but the light is dim. • Pull out and reverse the plug before putting it back in the socket. a) The alarm sounds. a) The refrigerator door has remained open for more than two minutes (the buzzer will stop sounding when you shut the door) or the correct switching-off procedure was not followed ( see Maintenance ). b) The alarm sounds and the two yellow indicator lights flash. b) The temperature in the freezer is too high. Check the quality of the food products and dispose if necessary. + buzzer = Heating is excessive c) The alarm sounds and the two yellow indicator lights as well as the green one flash. c) The temperature in the freezer has reached a dangerous level. The food must be disposed immediately. + buzzer = Heating danger b/c) In both these cases the freezer will maintain a temperature of about 0°C so that the food does not re-freeze. To turn off the acoustic signal open and close the refrigerator door. To restore normal operation bring the FREEZER OPERATION knob setting to (off) and turn the appliance on again. The green POWER indicator light flashes. • The appliance is not operating correctly. Contact the Technical Assistance Centre. The refrigerator and the freezer do not cool well. • The doors do not close properly or the seals are damaged. • The doors are opened too frequently. • The OPERATION knobs are not on the correct setting ( see Description ). • The refrigerator or the freezer have been over-filled. The food inside the refrigerator is beginning to freeze. • The REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob is not on the correct setting ( see Description ). • The food is in contact with the back inside wall of the refrigerator. The motor runs continuously. • The SUPER FREEZE button has been pressed (rapid freezing): the yellow SUPER FREEZE light is on or flashing ( see Description ). • The door is not closed properly or is continuously opened. • The outside ambient temperature is very high.

I have a Hotpoint mistral plus 8596. I left the freezer door open by mistake and now the freezer has defrosted and the motor is noisy

Category moved from Computers to Hotpoint Refigerators. Larry doesn't like foreign stuff in his section. He has however given you the correct answer. In 24 hours, it will have cooled, done a complete cycle including a Defrost. Your manual for extra points. https://www.manualslib.com/products/Hotpoint-Mistral-Plus-8596-2814547.html ..

My Hotpoint fridge fan in the back of the freezer will turn on for a very short time and then stop not allowing cold air to the bottom

Fridge with a freezer on top? That is normally caused by an issue with the defrost timer. At the back of the freezer, you have the evaporator coils and because the defrost timer fails, it becomes one huge lump of ice. Because there is no air flow through it, cold air isn't vented down to the fridge.

Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.

Hotpoint RLM80 Fridge too cold

If turning down the thermostat doesn't reduce the cooling (makes it warmer), the thermostat is probably faulty causing the motor to run too much. I have a RLA 80. Some time ago my fridge wasn't getting cold enough so I ordered a replacement thermostat and almost as an afterthought I gave the temperature adjusting knob an experimental tap with a screwdriver handle (known to often temporarily restore operation to any device that switches mains current). The fridge began working for a while and needed another tap... I must have given it the treatment half a dozen times and it suddenly began working normally. I have yet to replace the thermostat and the replacement is ready for when the time comes, as it has been ready for about 3 years.

We have a rls175 hotpoint larder fridge which is about 10 years old. The water is getting to the drip tray through the drain hole at the back of the fridge, but once there is not evaporating.

The drip tray should be firmly fixed to the top of the compressor unit - that gets quite warm during each cooling cycle. At the end of each cooling cycle the warming panel is switched on for a short time to melt the frost so the water drips into the tray shortly after the most heat is available to evaporate it and shortly after that the tray should be dry. How can such a simple system fail? Perhaps the tray is loose, perhaps the fridge is sited in a draught or perhaps there is a moist atmosphere in the fridge creating more frost and therefore too much water.
