SOURCE: Hotpoint fridge problem, warm fride, but freezer working good

Fridge along bottom shelves is much colder than the very top shelf which has milk etc., leading to spoilage. Fridge is at highest setting. In the upper left rear of the fridge compartment, is a cover for what I believe to be a circulatory fan. However, trying to remove this cover is difficult.
It seems that the clip nuts to which the two (2) small capscrews fasten are free wheeling and not allowing me easy access to the motor.

Please advise.

My model no. is HSS221FMD WW

LEFT DOOR OPEN OF FREEZER. CLOSE3D DOOR FOR 24 HRS. nOW LIGHTS FLASHING ON SUPER COOL AND SUPER FREEZE.


You will need to unplug and defrost the fridge for a few hours then replug the power. Leaving the doors open allows moisture to freeze on the evaporator while compressor continues to run confusing the control board

Fridge part working freezer not


The fridge is just the end of the freezer evaporator. If the freezer isn't cold inside, check the rear panel. It is probably frozen solid with no air getting through. Switch off, leave doors open for 24 hours and be prepared for lots of water to come out. Clean the condenser and make sure the fan inside is ok. Reset the thermostat to middle of the range and be sure to come back to tell us how you get on.

My freezer works fine but the fridge does not seem to be working its a hotpoint FF187L


There is a small fan, generally accessed in the freezer. It will be behind a vented panel. Its job is to blow cold air, as needed, to the refrigerator. Usually the problem is the little motor that drives this fan.

If you have a multimeter, you can access the fan and see if it is receiving 115 volts. If it is, and the fan is not spinning, then you need the little motor. If it is not receiving voltage, then you need the thermostat (which is on the fridge side).

Either part is very easy to replace. The panels are generally attached with a couple Phillips screws, and some just have panels that snap on/off. The parts can be found on eBay or many, many online sellers of appliance parts. Also, you probably have local appliance service businesses that sell parts. You will just need the make a model number.

If you don't own a multimeter - I will be so bold as to say you should. Very handy tool. And these days you can get a cheap one (for about $10 or so at Wall-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot etc). For household needs, you will be checking for AC Voltage. For auto needs, you will check for DC Voltage.

If this has been helpful, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

Fridge/Freezer combo - Freezer working fine but fridge is not


There is a duct between the freezer and refrigerator. Sometimes this duct blocks off with ice and won't allow airflow. Open your refrigerator door and check for air flow if there is none the duct needs to be defrosted. turn off freezer/ refrigerator and defrost.
