Since buying this poor excuse for a fridge freezer, we have had nothing but problems with. The last 'fix' required a circuit board. The 'engineer' from Hotpont manged to fit the wrong one so had to come back to fix it properly. It's now gone again so into the skip with it.
My question is why on earth does a basic fridge freezer need a circuit board? It does nothing more than any other fridge freezer that I've owned. The thermostat is all that's required. Obviously the circuit board is to stop owners repairing it themselves. In the past I've repaired numerous fridges with a simple thermostst replacement.
I used to really rate Hotpoint but they have gone VERY downhill. Will never buy another.
