hello, checking someone is there . . . ?


If the appliance is freezing everything up then it will be the control board at fault here.

As these are electronic controlled rather then a thermostat. Ive replaced quite a few of them for this fault.

Now these control boards are sold blank and need to be programmed up with the Hotpoint laptops so a diy repair isnt really an option on these.

The best option is a fixed price repair from Hotpoint which is about £119 all in so for that they will call out and replace and program the control board and that will stop it from freezing up.

Give the contact center a bell on 03448 224 224 and they can sort you out from there and get someone out to repair it for you.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
