Fridge Freezer Fault


Recommended Posts

  • Site Supporter

I had this exact same thing on mine last year. Freezer was fine, but fridge compartment was almost warm. Turned out the vent that allows cold air into the fridge from the freezer was blocked with ice. This is a so-called.'frost free' fridge freezer too.

Anyway, emptied it, switched it off, then left it to defrost for 48 hours (obviously a load of towels on the floor to soak up the water).

Switched it back on, and it was good as new.

 

Edit: just saw your post worthy - it's even the same model as yours!

Hotpoint. Future frost freeze

 

 

Pretty much a gonner then..

 

Needs a Hotpoint approved engineer to come out and plug in a computer, tell you the thermostat has gone.. (if it's running but not getting cold)..

 

If its making a clicking sound even worse..

 

Frost free freezers are trouble to fix, loads get rid when when warranty runs out.
