SOURCE: I have an RL33SBSW fridge

Good day..
I would Double-check the part.. before I did anything else.
I would recheck my model no. just to make sure I was right.... I would want to find out if the part I was sent is the one it is supposed to be... it probably is.... It may seem silly, but it happens more often than it should.
When a Refrigerator doesn't defrost like it should, a common condition would be to hear that some foods in the frig side freezing, why, is because the control which cycles both freezer and frig, is located in the Fresh food side, there is not enough air movement to cycle the thermostat, so it runs all the time. Cold air drops, and usually the freezing occurs down below in the veg. drawers and/or vent ports involving air transfer between the two compartments... as more time passes... ice on evaporator thickens, air flow circulation reduces even more, now conditions begin to reverse.. and exactly what you state above begins to occur... look inside your Freezer, the back wall... you'll see ice (like a snow-cone) forming.. if so... you could have a defective PCB, I doubt it.. 95% probability, it's the bi-metal termination thermostat.. the other 5% would be your def heater. I have found more PCB prone to be at fault under these circumstances then that the thermostat.. I wouldn't toss out that PCB... If you keep this unit for a long time, it will be the likely thing to be needed, in the next round..

SOURCE: I have a hotpoint fridge

I have tried the above solution without success. The only solution to the problem that works is to empty the fridge/freezer switch it off and allow it to do a full defrost. Then switch it on again. This appears to have sorted the problem

SOURCE: GE fridge: Freezer working but fresh food side not cold

The problem is the refrigeration evaporator, located in the freezer section is blocked with frost and ice and not air can pass through it. Four different failed parts can cause this problem. The defrost timer, the defrost heater safety thermostat, the defrost heater, or the evaporator fan motor. Unless you are very good with a volt-ohm meter, it wiil be difficult to distinguish which one of these parts has failed. A qualifed refrigeration service tech or a good appliance service tech with a refrigeration certification can find this quickly.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge part working freezer not


The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

Hello, My fridge side of my hotpoint model # Hsm25gftc sided by side fridge/freezer isn't getting cold anymore. I purchased it in 2007 I believe. I've tore the ice maker and tray out and pulled...


if the freezer is working fine it sounds like you could have a bad damper control,also there's another thing i want you to check first,hotpoint is a g.e. product,they have sensors in the machines,you said you had the back wall off,take it off again and on top of the evap coil you'll see a sensor,it looks like a white bullet with two whits wires going to it,look at it and if where the wires connect to it it has a black ring around it you have to change it out,also ther's one of these sensors in the fidge section too,it senses how cold the fridge is and tells the damper door to open and close,it sounds like your damper is staying shut,the part number for the temp. sensors are WR55X10025 and it's like 8 dollars,if they have the black ring on them they most likely are your problem,the new sensors are all white,if you have the white sensors then you could have a bad damper.go to this site,it's sears site http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Hotpoint-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-HSM25GFTCSA/1811/0165000/H0712760/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= go to the fresh food diagram and look at the damper and the sensor,one of these parts are badmalso g.e. has had alot of problems with the mother boards,the computer board in the back of the fridge,if the condenser fan and evap fans are running fine and the freezer is fine then i would replace the damper and the sensor but change out the sensor first because it's 8 bucks,if that doesn't do it then buy the damper,all it does is the fan blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge section,if the damper isn't opening the air can't enter into the fridge section.hope this helps and points you in the right derection,let me know how you make out,good luck salde

Hotpoint (GE)CTX18GJB not cold enough. Just had serviced - tech replaced defrost timer and defrost terminator. The top located freezer gets cold and can hear the fan running - but still not cold enough...


Hello,

I agree with the tech. if the refriderator isn't frosting it isn't working,their is only 1fan and its in the freezer,The tech could have missed some frost build up that is blocking the air flow into the fresh food section,if he removed all the frost it could take up to 24 hours to get cold ,it should slowly geta bit colder throughout the day,if by tomorrow its still not working have the tech come back and check for frost build up on the vents for air flow into fresh food compartment.
To reiderate their is two types of refrigerators,one that you have to manually defrost and a automatic defrost type where the defrost system which is comprised of the defrost heater,timer&termination t-stat will automatically melt the frost
