Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a hotpoint ice diamond fridge which has begun to freeze its contents, even on lowest setting. I replaced the thermostat 3 years ago and again 18 months ago due to the opposite problem of not cooling and all has been fine until now. Is this the thermo again or should i look elsewhere? Regards Bibz

My bottom drawer of my 3 year old Maytag fridge is freezing up all the items I put in it. The fridge is on its lowest setting. What's up?


You mentioned that the fridge is at its lowest settings, try up it a bit so it doesn't freeze up your items.

Fridge keeps freezing


Can't solve your problem, but just to report we have exactly the same issue, a huge block of ice forms on the upper rear panel. The compressor seems to be running 24h, not matter where the 'thermostat' is set.

I suspect that there was/are a faulty batch of thermostats. Or (since there is no metal cooling plate to bolt it to) that the T/Stat probe has somehow come adrift from its correct sensing area and is not correctly sensing the temperature inside the fridge.

If I get to the bottom of the problem, I will re-post here.

Hotpoint RLA64 getting too cold.


The thermostat capillary on a Hotpoint RLA64 (and possibly RLA80) is inserted into a tube. The tube becomes detached from the cooling element and so does not sense that the fridge has reached the desired temperature. It then carries on cooling resulting in ice build-up and freezing of goods.
As you cannot remove the top or back of the fridge, you cannot fix the capillary tube back into position. What you can do however, AFTER ISOLATING THE FRIDGE FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY, is to drill a small hole adjacent to the thermostat capillary tube and another in the roof of the fridge next to the interior light and pass the thermostat capillary INTO the fridge cabinet. Use tape to attach the capillary across the roof of the fridge and down the centre of the rear wall curling the last 50mm or so back up towards the top of the fridge. As long as you have dried the wall of the fridge and stuck the capillary securely in place, your fridge should now work correctly when powered up.
Only tackle this job if you are confident and ALWAYS ISOLATE the mains supply.
