SOURCE: hotpoint fridge model CSx20KATA AD defrost timer

Hi, This model does not have a defrost timer. It actually has a motherboard. If you have a defrost problem, the nore common part to check first is the defrost heater or termination switch ( bi-metal). These two parts are located inside the freezer compartment behind the rear panel where the frost is building up.
These two parts must have continuity. If one or noth of them have no continuity, they need replaced. Please use a hair dryer (NOT a sharp object the remove the frost from the evaporator coils.
If you need any more help or need to order the part, I can help you and we can order the parts off my web site WWW.Whirlpoolpartssurplus.com
Let me know if I can help.

Thanks
Vic

How do I fix my refrigerqtor hotpoint double door not defrostiong


Generally, if you unplug the refrigerator and set the freezer and refrigerator temperature controls to off then plug it back it, this will put the refrigerator in forced defrost mode. Keep the doors closed and allow defrosting to last for about 20 minutes. Then unplug again and reset the temperature controls to mid-range or a little above, and plug it back in. If this does not reset the defrost cycle, you probably need service.

Hotpoint FFA71 NOT DEFROSTING


Self defrosting feature is not working. Check defrost thermostat, defrost heater, defrost timer for proper operation.

Until repair is made, defrost the unit and turn back on until it freezes up again. Check the ice block at rear of freezer. If the ice is confined to the area around the refrigeration line coming into the freezer it is low refrigerant level. If the block completely covers the evaporator it is a non working defrost mechanism.

My Hotpoint Side-by-side temperature flucuates(model #HSS25GFTA). Items in freezer melt at times and then re-freeze. Same is noted for the fridge. Service tech added freon; however, problem continued. ...


You are correct on your evaluation of the " tech " the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature .

This is telling you that you have an automatic defrost problem.

Before I go on here the model number you passed appears to be a UK model.
63d99d9.jpg

The problem can be:

1. The defrost timer / control
2. The 60 deg F defrost bi-metal thermostat
3. Wiring
4. The defrost element.

Some info about the 5 year warranty is on page 11 of the owners manual: http://www.hotpoint.co.uk/hotpoint/_pdf/manuals/19506810502_UK.pdf

I do not locate the appliance parts manual for this unit as I am not in the UK.

Thanks for using FixYa.
