Hotpoint refrigerator csx22gr problem

My 15 yr. old Hotpoint side by side refrigerator, CSX22GR, feels hot on the strip between where the doors close, all the way from top to bottom. The rubber on the doors actually feels really warm when I open either door from pressing against the hot strip when I close the doors. When fridge isn't running, the strip goes back to normal temp. I know fridge is old, but was hoping for an easy fix that hubby could do. Thanks for any info anyone can give on this problem. Bonnie

    I was told to add more details but I don't really know what more to add. Just that whenI open either door or both, the part of refrig. where the rubber along the doors rest when closed, is hot to the touch. Never felt hot before a few weeks ago. Even the rubber along the doors feels pretty warm from the heat transfering to them. Time for a new fridge? Bonnie

I cant find the filter on my hotpoint no frost refridg.number csx22gr where is it.


your model number doesn't come up.if it's an older machine some didn't come with water filters,you had to add an inline filter on the copper water line,you would run your copper,go down the cellar or behind the machine,cut the copper and the filter connects in between the copper where you cut the line.if you do have a filter it could be in the fridge section top right side or down in the bottom kickplate.i found your model the a was missing after the b baww.it doesn't show a filter,this is an older unit,check behind or in basement,wherever the water line goes and see if there's a filter added into it,if not you can cut the copper and add a filter yourself.home depot sells them

Hello,

In the back of the refrigerator behind the scrvice panel is a tube that connects to the drain inside of the freezer drain...that tube is blocked and ya need to pull that tube out and clean it as well as the part of the drain inside of the freezer which ya have already cleaned.

I have a Hotpoint 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side No-Frost Refrigerator with Dispenser CSX22GR that seems to have a defrosting problem. I submitted a question and after looking at the freezer the inside coils...


In the freezer compartment, there is a heater tube that stops the freezer from freezing up. It is probably blown, and you need a replacement heater tube.

Replaced the defrost timer in my Hotpoint csx22gr is getting cool but the compressure doesnot seem to be coming on will it take a while to come on after replaceing the part.fan is running fin,removed ice...


I would replace the "Defrost termination thermostat" I recently repaired a single door
unit with the same symptoms and it required both the defrost timer and the termination
thermostat. (the termination thermostat was a plastic affair and had actually popped open). It now works fine Hope this helps.

Think we need to install a heater since freezing up - model # csx22gr - where is heater, evaporator, and how do you change it out?


Defrost heater is attached to evaporator behind the cover plate in the freezer. Change out the defrost thermostat while you in there (the defrost thermostats are inexpensive , so if yo are putting a new heater in it makes sense to do the t stat also.
Just wire the new components in the way the old ones are. I would check the defrost timer first before assuming the heater is bad
