Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
Top compartment of frezzer lots of ice therefore not frost free having to defrost the compartment can anyone help?
You have a hotpoint mistral f/f i take it in silver..
Check to see if the fan is running at the bottom on the back of the fridge its next to the compressor behind the panel ...
if the compressor is running and the fan is not then your fault is the fan..
IF the fan is running then its the sensors...
These are located in the freezer section, pull out the draws and remove the panel behind it.... six screws.......... you will c threes plugs at the top ledt hand side.. the yellow one is for the fridge the green one for the freezer.... replace both if your freezer is not working...
Also just below the freezer door there is a panel remove the panel and use a vaccumm to clean the fluff that has built up on the coils..
hope this helps if you need anymore help dont hesitate to ask...
by the way the sensors are called evap thermistors...

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

there is a drain hole in the freezer dept in the fridge that is blocked This requires removing all the panels etc within the freezer until you get to the main grill at the back This will be iced up so you might have to wait a while or you might be able to chip away at it. You will then see the drain hole concerned at thre bottom Try pocking a thin wire down it or poor hot water over it Its a bit of fiddling around but is not hard to clear Problem solved

too defrost just open the doors for a day with the unit unplugged. as far as why it is frosting up check door seals make sure they are all good and seal it up well and that should take care of it.

Open the freezer and see if it needs a good defrosting. I know you may think you bought a Frost free Fridge, but if something goes wrong with the forst free system, It can frost up. If it is Frosted , Turn the Fridge off and use a hair dryer for about 30 minutes to melt all the fost and dry up the frezzer compartment, It is imprtant to dry u the Freezer compartment. Hope this helps you.
