View Full Version : Hotpoint FFFL180P Fridge-Freezer not cooling but compressor ok

I'd be really grateful for any pointers with this one please.

FFFL180P is the assumed model number as no sticker or panel anywhere, but visually identical and exactly the same control panel layout. Sticker on back shows manufacture in 2010.

Unit was seen running, bought and moved carefully by car about 10 miles, whereupon after standing overnight it fails to run compressor despite a reset (both buttons for 10 sec and then a 'beep').

Compressor runs fine if power applied to it directly.
Relay on control board (Indesit code 162001895.05) checks out fine.
Door switch works - interior light goes off.
Controls work as expected. Lights light and go out.
I think I have heard some sort of flap move inside the back.

BUT - no cooling !

Any suggestions anyone please ?
