Hotpoint RLA51 fridge keeps freezing up


A fridge makes cold air in the freezer only and blows it into the fridge throu a little air door with a small fan, one of your temerature adjustments will open and close this little door and the other ajustment (the thrmostate) will turn on and off the compressor at what ever temperature you have it set for. if the little door is closed to much the cold air can not get into the fridge fast enough to make the temperature cold enough to turn of the thermostate. This will cause items to freeze near the air door as the air comming out of it will be something like -20C. to fix this it sometimes helps to open this little door more... something like "freezer temp warmer" and also to turn the "fridge temp warmer". if that does not do it, then the thermostate may be faulty, to test it slowly turn it down untill the fridge turns off, if it only turns off at the off position, replace it. also one last thing , sometimes the airdoor can frost up and restrict the air from blowing into the fridge, so you can unplug the fridge and leave the doors open for the weekend and let everything thaw out. then set all the controls for normal and plug back in. Make sure you do not leave the unit plugged in or sometimes the little door light can get so hot it may melt the plastic lining in the fridge.

1999malibuoverheating.was sucsessful in venting air from systym.drove car for a day with no problems.son took it on hiway 65-70mph car overheated lost coolant


The first thing is to make sure there are no coolant leaks,and next run the engine and feel both top and bottom hoses as it starts to run hot, if both hoses are not about the same (meaning hot) then you have a bad thermostant, if both hoses are hot then you may have a problem with the colling fan, most of the time its a bad thermostant or theres a leak in the system.

Freezer works fidge dont


Some fridges only cool the freezer, there is an evaporator fan motor that then blows are from the freezer into the fridge to cool it. You may need to replace the fan. ($30) It usually starts squealing before it goes. The fan is located in the freezer section probably at the top behind a vented cover. Check to make sure it spins very freely in not replace it. It could be your drain is plugged or frozen, pull out the fridge and look at the bottom to see where the hose enters the fridge, pour some hot water down from inside the fridge to see if it is clear if not, clear the hose.

Kitchenaid fridge #KSCS25INSS hot door frame


There are heaters located inside the door frame, to prevent your doors from freezing shut, and also to prevent condensation on the outside of the appliance. It sounds to me as though that is where your problem is... Hope this helps

You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer.

Fridge freezing


Low freon charge will cause the compressor to run continuously, as it never reaches the set temperature. This will also cause excessive ice buildup as well. I am assuming this little fridge doesn't have an automatic defrost. If it does look at that next. You didn't say, but does it reach proper temperature? Go to the back where the compressor is. Feel the lines coming out of the compressor. the low pressure, or larger one, it may have insulation around it, should be cold. If you cant tell (sometimes these small compressors they look the same size) its the line leading inside the freezer. Feel about 1 foot away from the compressor, if possible. Next feel the high or small pipe, this one is going to the outside coil. This should be very warm, but not cool and not real hot. This goes for the compressor too. A 134A system sometimes is very hot when low on freon.
