Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
The compressor will run and shut off frequently. Sometimes up to 90% of the time depending on the temp in the house and how clean the back of the fridge is kept.
If the fridge is freezing we know that the compressor is fine, but your thermostat is not shutting down at the correct temperature. You will need to have a service technician replace it. Because the Temp Control units can differ between models, it would be to your advantage to have a tech perform this repair. They cost between $70 and $100.

Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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

Not only the thermostat needs to be considered but the adaptive defrost board and the air damper between compartments. Something happened yesterday and my solution was changed to a clarification request. Sea Breeze
