    When you open the freezer do you hear a fan running inside the compartment?

You have a defrost problem, or your evaporator motor has stopped working.if you have ice build-up on the back of the freezer, you have a bad heater, defrost thermostat, or a bad timer

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


Hi,

First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

that model number does not come up in my program, so I cannot give you any concrete advice. The fact that your freezer is great is a good sign, nothing major. Sounds like you may have a bad freezer fan motor, not blowing cold air down to the fridge section. but the fact that it is intermittent like that, you might have a faulty main control board. Without proper inspection, I cant say for sure.

Yes, the difusser door is not allowing cold air to enter the fridge section, a fridge freezer is actually just a freezer, some of the cold air is drawn off from the freezer to chill the fridge protion, if the door is stuck, broken no cold air is getting to the fridge section

Fridge on top of freezer is not chilling


if you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this

1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor
IF fan is running check these things
1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch
2. ensure door shuts
3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille)
4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.
