Question about Hotpoint HTS16BBMLWW / HTS16BBMLCC Top Freezer Refrigerator
I changed the temp control and i still have the same problem
Try adjusting the air damper. also how you arrange the shelves and food can have an effect on how things cool. think of the cold air from the freezer as a water fall. if tall items are causing the air to channel straight to the botom of the fridge with out dispersing it will cause items to freeze at the bottom of the fridge. Play with your lay out. Also if the fridge is running all the time good way to test is to turn the fridge all the way up before bed. in the morning if the fridge is still running try turning it down till the compresor turns off. if the control is in the off position you need to replace it. if it shuts off before the control says "off" play with the air flow. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: fresh food side freezing
the air damper is stuck open or tempature control is bad. look thru the vents(use a mirror) on the left rear(top side) of the fresh food compartment (right hand door) to see if the air damper is open/closed. i am sure it will be open since your freezing food in the ref section. if it is open ,watching with your mirror turn ref (fresh food) control off. the air dmper should close, if not damper could be stuck(ice build up,piece of foam,ect) if you can determine damper door is free, then best thing to do is replace controlassy.(120.00 or so) good luck

These refrigerator use the cold air from the freezer the cool the refrigerator. At the rear of the upper refrigerator compartment, there is a shroud. Remove the shroud and you should see a "flapper" that shuts off the cold air when desired. You will most likely see the flap is broken. Once the flap is broken, you lose control of your refrigerator temp. This is a common problem with this refrigerator.
Hope this helps.

To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant.
I suggest you to contact the service authority.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I see this happen a lot on these models. The defrost control board is part of four operations. If you changed the Defrost control board then one of the two thermostats is not responding to changes in temperature settings. For freezer if turning the thermostat warmer should cause the compressor not to run as much and open the damper and regulate. If the only place the thermostat setting is placed to off and it responds only to off I would believe that thermostat is the reason. I believe you are on the right track to repair but if you have a look at the wiring diagram you see the connection and point I'm trying to make here. Let me place the diagram and send you a link shortly, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The problem you are facing is due to one of the following reasons:
If the thermostat is at its maximum warmest temperature and still the things are freezing up, it shows that the thermostat could be faulty and needs to be serviced/replaced.
If the thermostat is not the bottle neck then there is a possibility of a leak in a sealed refrigerant system or cold air migration unit (In Side by Side models) or the worst due to the Air Damper.
Actually the bottle neck to the symptoms you are facing is a bit tedious to locate. Actually it requires a very detailed physical analysis of the above quoted components that might require the services of a qualified repair person.
Best of Luck,
