Hi, I am having the same problem the fan will only spin for a few seconds after the power is restored if left off for a while, The top of the freezer is maybe 0c and the bottom gets down to maybe -5c. The fridge seems to be at an ok temp though there does seem to be a bit of water collecting under salad draws. The link above doesnt seem to work and I am not really sure what I am looking for with the search function, Can you point me to the right thread.

To add I took the back panel off and it was not iced up, I also got a multimeter and there is no power been sent to the fan other than for the few seconds when power is restored.

Cheers

need to replace the pcb on the unit and it will sort the problem out

Is there a specific fault on the pcb as I have a friend who is an electronics engineer and I am sure he would be able to repair it. I am sure he could trace it, but if some one knows what the problem is, I am sure he would appriciate it :)

So not a thermosat/thermistor problem then?? nothing that cheap :( Unit is only just over 12 months old, and reading on the net that some people had 3 PCB's in 3 years :(

Hotpoint have 5 years warranty on all there appliances:) but you will have to pay the 90 call out,:eek:which is cheaper than a new fridge/freezer;)
