Frequently Asked Questions

Where do the defrosted ice droplets on the fridge go?

The melted water produced when your Hotpoint appliance auto defrosts itself goes to a water collection point on the rear of your appliance that sits above the compressor. As the compressor gets warm during everyday usage the resultant moisture is evaporated.

Should the water container described above get contaminated by spillages within the appliance or foreign bodies getting into the water drip tray itself then we recommend using our sanitising fridge cleaner. Simply spray onto any internal or external parts of your appliance and wipe away.

This is available on or by calling our spares department on 0344 822 5225.
