After turning off my Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer for several days

This answer was rated:

After turning off my Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer for several days because of ice build up in the bottom if the freezer. Turned it back on and all three lights keep flashing - I can't turn them off. I have tried turning the dials back to off and holding down the Superfreeze & Supercool buttons down for several seconds, all the lights go off but as soon as release my fingers from the buttons all three lights starting flashing again. The fridge and freezer seem to be working ok although seem colder than they used to. Please tell me what to do now.
Many thanks.



When you get all the lights flashing flashing like this to reset it you just open the fridge door.

Turn the freezer dial only to off.

Wait 20 seconds then turn it back on and that should stop the lights from flashing.


Let me know how it goes.
