Guest's review of Hotpoint FF200E

★☆☆☆☆

“A pile of rubbish!”

Written on: 27/01/2013

Bought the Hotpoint about 2 years ago and until the last Christmas everything had been fine. The freezer compartment works ok, while the fridge is way too warm. Having read loads of posts on the Internet regarding the FF200 and it turns out that there is a huge block of ice behind the freezer panels. Tonight I'm going to borrow my wife's hairdryer and attack the iceberg. Wish I had researched the thing before we purchased it.
Unfortunately the whole operation needs to be repeated in a few months and so on.
No wonder why my parents paid a bit more a got an Electrolux and have enjoyed over 10ys faultless service
!

Not going to buy anything with Hotpoint/Indesit on them. Buy cheap(ish)-pay twice.

Had same problem. just gone through procedure again but this time have really tightened screws on back plate; this ensures air tight seal between back plates, allowing cold air to reach fridge from fan. As you look at back of freezer I've also put duct tape over top left outlet hole to freezer, this is hole between fan and air vent to fridge because my freezer was getting iced up and fridge was warm. only done this 2 days ago so early days yet. Now motor works for about 20 mins and silence for about an hour. bliss. Fridge is lovely and cold food in freezer is frozen. have both controls just below minimum. I've also put lots of take away containers in fridge so don't lose cold air with door open also to stop moisture from atmosphere reaching cooling element. hopefully this may help. Please monitor your freezer working ok if you use temperature settings that i have. good luck I'll let you know how mine goes.
