Question about Refrigerators
This fridge is freezing food in the fresh food compartment. It is 22 degrees in the fresh food area. I changed out the cold control but it made no difference. The door seals look good. There is no build up of frost on the evaporator so the defrost system appears to be working fine. There is a manual cold control in the freezer compartment which appears intact and working fine. I had this set on medium. The cold control I had set on 1. Any ideas on what I should check next?

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...

turn the freezer up to highest setting and set the refrigerator control to about half way. this will block some of the airflow into the refrigerator.

If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

the evap fan probably stopped working because of the shorted defrost thermostat. if you remove the freezer drawer you will probably see frost build-up on the back wall. what you need to do is remove the back wall and manually defrost the coil with a hair dryer. have some towels handy. once the ice is melted you will need to replace the thermostat or this will happen again. you should buy a new thermostat before the repair so you know what you're looking for. hope this helps
