Hotpoint FFA52 Upright Fridge Freezer
about 4.5 y old. Came home and found it had stopped. Compressor not running. Unloading frozen food to save it, compressor started up and began to cool it down again, but has now stopped again. When running it works. Anything I can do or does it need an serviceman ?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Hotpoint is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Its an Iced Diamond FFA 52, about 4.5 yrs old.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can.... Im pretty hand at fixit jobs, but not too familiar with freezers.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I had turned the fridge t/stat up an down but without response, however when it restarted I turned the Tstat down then up to reset it to correct level, and it stopped altogether again. That shouldnt affect the freezer though?
