Question about Hotpoint HTS16HBR Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have an old Hotpoint Top Freezer Refrigerator model CTF15ELD Serial # TL301428. Recently the refrigerator part is not staying cold enough and there is condensation dripping on the upper part of the refrigerator in the back inside under where the freezer cabinet is. Cold control is set on 5, refrigerator seems to be about 55 degrees. Freezer is working - freezing icecubes, etc. condensation - - a very thin layer of ice on the ceiling of the refrigerator below the freezer- -is forming and then drips down. The amount of water dripping is significant enough to have to have it sopped up from the bottom of the fridge on a daily basis.
It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.
