Question about Hotpoint Â 21.8 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator
The thermostat is always set at "5". I noticed that the freezer was not as cold as it should be. So I turned it up to "6" to see if it cut in. It did, but it doesn't seem to cut in unless I turn up. Do I need to replace thermostat?
You shoulnt have to set the controls colder the 50% like 3 1/2 out of 7 / there are two controls one is in the freezer or should i say it sences freezer temp. this control actuly turns the compresor on and off the second is more a damper witch allows more or less are to be sent from the freezer to the cooler or bottom cabinet. Many many times i have seen people overfill there freezers witch causes similer troubles. the control is siply a switch that works on a presuized gas bellows. as the temp reduses in the bellow do to low tep the control opens. as it increases with heat the switch closes. turning the contol colder simply changes the values. most control fale when the will not shut off or will not turn on . veary rarely in between. your fride is also frost free and the defrost system may be in trouble , this will cause ice buid up in the freezer coil cousing a lack of air flow . so as you can see there is more involed then the turn of a nobe. to test the defrost system simple turn the timer into defrost or youl here it click / should be lokated in the top of the food copartment. see if the defrost ends within 1/2 hour . if not replase the timer.... hope this helped
