    We're seeing the same problem.  Door was a crack open now it doesn't seem to be cooling.  Let it sit closed over night and still not cooling down - getting warmer...  Any ideas?

You may of gone into a defrost timing this along with door open will take some time for refridge to lower temp of the walls and door then work in a normal fashion. do youhear the compressor running? you could not have damaged the ref. by just leaving the door open. the most that could take place is over working the compressor. then it would cut off under heat overload. wait some time and let the unit cool off . i would remove food and operate under no load until things stabelize

Hotpoint ctx18ea fridge not cooling


Kimberley, try this:

First see any sign of ice build up in the freezer.

1. Switch off power from wall outlet.
2. Open the fridge door and freezer door and keep them open for atleast 5-6 hours. Salvage whatever food you can.
3. You may now see a puddle of water under the fridge. Clean the floor and inside of the fridge if water and other fluids visible .
4. Now re-connect power and set the recommended settings- usually at 4. Close doors.
5. Your fridge will be making a humming sound. Let it begin to cool.
Good luck

The freezer is working fine, Iv tried rebooting the fridge but it's not cooling at all :( my son had left the fridge open all night....


Try turning the temp setting to '0' pull the wall plug out and leave for 2 - 3 hours with door open. Plug in switch on and set temp to max. close door and leave to cool. This should work.

Freezer door was accidentally left open for about one hour. Now the refrigerator and freezer are not cooling.


If the freezer or fridge door remains open for one hour or few more hours by mistake, then to again get to its proper cooling cycle, it requires approx another 24 hours.And in that also, dont open the refrigerators doors for few hours.If you open, close it quickly.Once it cooling cycle again gets set, then you can use it like you use regularly.But approx it takes 24 hours to get proper cooling.-------- ------------------ But if its already more then 24 hours and there is very low cooling, then it can be internal defrost cycle issue.You will have to do manual reset procedure.The manual reset procedure is as follows:-------- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,it will get set to its cooling cycle and work as normal.------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Fridge door was left opened and now the fridge wont work but freezer working fine


All the cold air comes from the freezer side so if the fridge side is not cooling then the baffle door is not opening up or it has accumilated ice in it and frozen up. I would try to unplug it for a hour or so with the doors open and let it thaw and then plug back up and let it run for a couple hours to see if that fixes it. If not then I would suggest having the baffle checked.
