Replaced control board in Hotpoint Model HSS25GFTA. front controls now operate and compressor is on and fan inside unit is working, but fan in bottom has not come on, how longwill it take before it does...

It should be easy to replace. However, Condenser fans are "usually" very robust fans. It should come on with the compressor unless the environment is below freezing (but not likely a feature). I would double check all electrical connections to and from compressor and Condensor fan. the outside bottom fan near the compressor. If it continues you may jeopardize the compressor. It is not made to run without the condenser cooling fan.

My frost free refrigerator doest not cool. the bi-metal thermostate has been replaces 3 times and the timer once. what to do? my e-mail address is

If your fan is running inside the fzr and the fan under the bottom ck and make sure the coils are clean under the fridge. If all of the above are working and the coil is clean make sure the black cardboard piece is covering the back side this directs air from the front across the coils and exits by the fan. Then the only thing left is loss of freon in the system. Make sure the compressor is kicking in when you turn it on you will hear it hummm and it will be warm to the touch. If the compressor is not kicking in then I would suspect the starter relay under the plastic cap on the compressor its the size of a nickle and is connected to one of the 3 prongs coming out of the compressor. unplug you fridge before handling the elect parts. good luck

Freezer not freezing

when the freezer is not freezing, check the fan and fan motor in the freezer section. It should be running when the compressor is running. Check for frost. If you see frost on the rear inside panel, the frost is usually about 3 in. thick on the inside. Check and make sure the fan next to the compressor is running, if your's has one. It will run when the compressor is running. Check for gaps in your door gasket. If there is no frost, both fans are running, compressor is running, and no gaps, and your coils outside the refrigerator are clean, it doesn't sound good.

if the condenser fan ( the one near the compressor) is not running and the compressor is running, then that's not good. try to lubricate the bushings of the fan and see if it would run. feel the blade if it turns smoothly. if it's sticcky, then there is your problem.

it should be running the same time as the compressor. if the compressor stops, the fan should stop too.

tnx 4using fixya,

Hotpoint FFA70 Freezer High Temp

sum fans only kick on if cold enough

if the whole evap is frosted up u have a defrost problem

if frost is only partial u need to throw it out cause it either has a bad compressor or freon leak

check your fan by compressor and make sure coil isnt filthy too

Food is defrosting in my hotpoint frost free fridge/freezer

Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.
