Question about EuroCave Performance 283 Wine Cellar
I own a Hotpoint side by side refrigerator/freezer model CSX22BCBK WH that about 6 years old. The refrigerator slowly gets warm over about 2 weeks. I must defrost the unit and it will work again for another 2 weeks. Frost appears on the back of the freezer after about two weeks and the temp goes down on the refrigerator about the same time. What can I test on this unit to find the exact problem. I did clean the coils, what little is showing under the unit. It is almost completely sealed. Thanks in advance for any help.
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...........

This sounds like a timer issue.the timer tells the unit when to run and when to defrost.
