Hotpoint Quadrio, freezer good, fridge not cooling.?
Freezer got very cold and fridge very warm.Pressed both orange buttons at top of unit simultaneously.The freezer light alone flashed, indicating, I think that the fault is in the freezer.Have turned off the unit, in case the freezer behind the plastic case is frozen up, so as to defrost the freezer.
Any suggestions/ advice/ insights?
Leaving these frost free ( although no models are not fully frost free ) to defrost for a couple of hours is not enough, you need to leave them off for at least 48 hrs, reason being the drain hole could be blocked up with a plug of ice and because its well insulated takes a long time for it to melt.dry the insides well with a towel cloth before swiching back on.
Mines a Hotpoint and i do this about once a year depending if the kids have shut the door properly or they have put in wet packets etc the moisture builds up on the coils and blocks the airflow through it. Give this a go .
