Thread: Any fridge freezer mechanics on board?

  1. #1

    Any fridge freezer mechanics on board?

    I noticed a funny notice coming for the fridge lady night. It sounded like something was rocking gently. I actually thought it was that so looked in the fridge and I wasn't. I turned the fridge off at the mains and it stopped instantly. I thought it odd but fridges always make weird noises. Today I have gone to have cereal only to find the milk is warm so I'm guessing its dead. I didn't carry in investigating as I had to go to work.

    Any ideas?

    Ps yes I did turn it back on
    Its less than 18 month old and I think its a Hotpoint.

    It all works out in the end and if it hasn't worked out well it isn't the end!

    Sounds like a compressor or gas issue to me.

    Hi,
    I am not a refrigeration engineer but my good friend is and I recently had to call on him when I experienced something very similar.
    Bottom line is if its out of warranty, through it in the bin if its a buck standard fridge you have.
    The cost of re gassing, or even more expensive, replacing the compressor are not cheap. You can buy a new warranted fridge for not much more than the cost of a compressor alone and expect to pay at least 50 for a re gassing and you still have the problem of a leak somewhere which caused your refrigerant gas to be lost.

    Phone hotpoint service with all the details with the washing machines etc they have a 5 year warranty on parts and labour.
    ​if nothing else it is only a phone call.

    Are you sure it was milk you poured on your cereal?
