Question about Refrigerators
Freezer not working. Will only go down to about zero degrees centigrade. Fridge ok. No frost build up. No leaks. This board has a PC Board to control operations including temperature. I've changed that already - no change. What should I try next

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

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...

This button is the winter/summer setting.
If you switch it on so as the red mark shows this is set for the summer setting.
What it does is allows the interior light to come on very dimly when you shut the door.
The fridge then thinks it is too warm and starts to cool down more, designed for when the ambient temperature is high.
Hope this helps

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
