Question about Hotpoint Â 16.6 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator
The refrigerator has quit cooling, however, the freezer is working just fine. When I put my hand under the "vent" I can't feel any cold air. When I open the freezer door and put my hand under the "vent", I can feel cold air going into the refrigerator. Damper? Fan? hotpoint top freezer, works fine. refrigerator not cooling, only 2 and l/2 years old, not abused. i am just upset about this, $75 to come out and check and told these refrigerators only last about 5 years. should i buy a new and better one. thanks i am in a townhouse, not sure of the size Vickie thank you

Hi: It is either the defrost heater (most likely) or the defrost timer. The airway to the fresh food is clogged with frost. I doubt your freezer is packed as you could put your hand on the vent. If you block the vents this can cause the problem also. Check the defrost heater and replace if necessary. It is a wire coil in a glass tube. if the coil is broken it is bad. Look at your parts list or on line at Sears Parts. to find out where it is. I hope this helps, Jeff
