Open Question

My friend has a Hotpoint no frost refrigerator csf20eb. The light has burned out. I have removed a light bulb that appears to be the size of a regular light bulb. Do I need to purchase a refrigerator light bulb for this model. It is at least 25 years old.

It snaps in place by lifting the plastic cover. Then when you replace push it in then down. It has two tabs one on each end.

Hotpoint Future fridge freezer - freezer working well but top of the back of the fridge has a large build up of ice ??? And doesn't appear to be keeping the food cold enough


here are lots of things that can cause cooling problems. One of the most common causes of poor cooling in a frost free refrigerator is a defrost system failure. In such a case one or the other compartment may appear to be keeping proper temperature but that too may change in a short period of time. The fridge compartment's temperature rise is usually (but not always) the first to be noticed. Frost" and "Ice"
There is a difference between "frost" (a white, snow-like substance) and "ice" (usually clear and solid). When referring to what is seen during an inspection, please keep this distinction in mind as the possible causes for each are often very different. The Defrost System
Inspecting the (usually rear) wall of the freezer compartment for a frost build up is necessary. (In the case of many GE top freezer models, check the freezer's bottom panel.) If there is a frost coating on it, it is often a sign of excessive frosting beneath it. Sometimes however the evaporator cover panel will actually need to be removed (see the illustration below) before an excessive frost build will visible.
The refrigeration system's evaporator (cooling) coil is usually in the freezer compartment. This evaporator will periodically frost over and have to be defrosted by means of a heating system. When the defrost heating system fails, the frost can accumulate to such a degree that airflow throughout the appliance is hampered. There may be just enough air circulation to cool the freezer section but that will eventually stop too.

Were is the freezer light bulb ?


Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

It appears that you would need to remove the light cover to reach the light bulb of your Frigidaire refrigerator (LFUS2613LF0). However, before doing so it is very important to unplug your refrigerator and wear gloves when replacing light bulb to avoid getting cut. Once you have removed the light cover you should be able to reach the light bulb and replace it with an equivalent bulb. Then you may replace light cover and plug in your refrigerator. Hope this helps!

Burned out light in refrigerator


Can be behind a plastic cover held in place by philips head screw or screws. The plastic cover can have side clips that need to be squeezed in gently to allow them to release from a slot in the ridge. Once the cover is removed, the bulb should be a screw type. Remove and then buy a replacement - the edison screw size and wattage are the most important thing to fit. Bulb shape to suit size behind the cover. Buy at WW or Coles otherwise spare parts on possibly ebay if you can be precise on model etc.

I have the bottom freezer w/2 doors up top....light inside will not go off and has started to melt some of the plastic pieces. How do you remove the light bulbs so the darn thing doesn't burn...


There should be a light switch inside each compartment, depress them with the door open one at a time, locate the bad switch and disconnect it. You can remove the bulbs too. Most of the problems with bottom freezer are the door, they seem to not get closed properly and they get heavily frosted, once frosted they seem not to close correctly and cause the lights to remain on.
I would look for the problem with the door closing or the door switch failing.

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb


The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

It sounds like you have a problem in the automatic defrost function. The most common problem on a Hotpoint/GE fridge is the defrost heater element burning out.
Remove the back wall from the inside of the freezer section and you will see the heater below the evaporator coil. You will need to check it with a volt/ohm meter to know for sure if it is bad, but that is the most likely problem.
If you will post the complete model number I will try to give more detailed advise.
Thanks/Mike

Hotpoint refrigerator not cold


There is a defrost timer that initates defrost for 30mins every 8hours of compressor run time. Take off the thermostat knob and the freezer damper knob, remove light guard. To the right of the thermostat, is the timer advancement screw it is small,and it looks like a plastic cam not a screw. you put the flat blade of a screwdriver and rotate click by click till unit shuts off (you will hear louder click and fans and comp will shut off. Now its in defrost. Wait 5mins open freezer remove lower bin look at drain hole where frost buils you shoud see the heater glowing red melting the frost. If no red glow and no heat from panel. You must go further with the diagnosis.. A solved rating will keep this expert advice coming...........
