Hi and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve.
May I have the Make and full model # ***** your fridge?
Also how is it working otherwise? Any excess frost on the inside rear wall of the freezer?
Thank you

Hi Michael

Hotpoint freezer FZFM 151 XX

It appears to be working ok and no excess frost.

Thank you for that.
What you can try is unplug the fridge for at least 30 minutes then plug it back in, let me know if it does this again.
The unplugging causes a reset of the main board, which may be at fault.
We will see hopefully this step will cure the problem;-)
I will stick with you until the unit is fixed properly.
But please rate my service thus far to you before closing this page.
It won't cost you anything to further to rate and I will be with you at no additional cost until you have this repair complete;-)
Thank you

I did what you advised but unfortunately it didnt work.

Good morning,
that means the main control board may be at fault or a sensor.
DO you have a thermometer in the fridge or freezer?
You will need a good one to check this.
Please let me know.
Thank you

Hi Michael

We do have a thermometer in the freezer and it reads just under 0 degrees



Hi it would be a good idea to purchase one and place it in the unit then let me know what it reads after about an hour.
