HOTPOINT FFA64 - Fridge area

Postby BrendaEvans » Mon Aug 11, 2008 7:54 am

Hi - First of all, thank you very much for your website. Thank you.

We have recently purchased a Hotpoint FFA64 fridge/freezer. Everything seems fine on it but the fridge area doesn't seem to be as cold as maybe it could be - the guy we bought it off said the same thing. Although it keeps things cool, and maintains quality in foodstuffs, it isn't all that cold.

I was wondering if this could be a temperature control issue and if you have any advice on the subject.

Thanks very much
Kindest regards
Brenda Evans

Hi Brenda,

If the back wall of the fridge is frosting up in an even rectangular pattern the refrigeration system is likely to be working ok. If there's an uneven lump of ice building up, or only part of the back wall is frosting up in an irregular shape, the system [i.e. compressor or refrigerant charge] is at fault.

It sounds to me as if one of the thermistors [temperature sensors] is faulty or out of calibration, but on that model they aren't replaceable. I think it's unlikely to be the pcb or diverter valve but somebody else may have other ideas.
