Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Replaced motherboard three months ago, because of same problem, per repair guy. Help!!
OK, you will need to replace the "defrost thermostat" that is located on the coils in the freezer. Here is the part to order. If that was the problem before, the repair tech sold you a part you didn't need. I can't stand service techs that do that! Anyways, keep me posted.

I had this problem about a year ago with mine. You need to replace the heating element located at the bottom of the freezer. It's behind a plate that you can remove after loosening a couple of screws. This heating element defrosts the freezer. When it goes bad it allows ice to form over the coils and then the freezer actually warms up. It's around $30 and an easy fix. You just need to unplug a couple of wires and put the new one in.

i have just fixed my fridge freezer by following the instruction from KarenBa and GWoman i have also managed to stop the lights (super cool and super freeze) from flashing by turning the temperature to zero on both fridge and freezer so they turn off then holding both super buttons down for about 15 seconds then turning the temperature back up. hope this helps

Hi, You have a self defrosting problem.
Remove the rear inside freezer panel and check continuity on the defrost element and bi-metal switch.The bi-metal has to be tested cold. If there is continuity on both parts, you will need to change the defrost timer.
The most common part that goes bad is the element. I hope this helps you. Please leet me know if I can assist you further.

Without seeing this I can't tell you a price or exact fault but the first free thing to try that could likely fix it. unplug the unit from the power and leave both the doors open for 48hrs so the unit is 100% defrosted then try again. cheers.

Either the repair guy did not wire up the heater correctly or he replaced the wrong part, if the heater was good it was likley to be the defrost thermostat...I would call the repair guy back to check.
