Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
The seal on chest freezer door is split open and thus layer of ice forms with water drops all over outside wall of freezer. How do I repair and where do I find parts - is it an entire door that is required?

I would expect at the very least a heater circuit around the freezer door. Some of the commercial units also have sprung doors to keep the doors firmly shut which you could check by opening the doors. Door heater circuits are normally very reliable and it would be worth checking the voltage is getting to them, they are also a pain to change out. Hope this helps.

problem could be one of two things.
insulation breakdown will cause an iceball to form.
if the compressor is failing, then frost line does not reach the thermostat poisition and compressor runs all time and an ice ball will also build up
in either case, not worth repair

SOURCE: Ice door flapper does not open
It is possible that the solenoid wire connections may have come loose. You will have to pop off the front cover of the display panel to gain access to the solenoid. To remove the panel, look below the bottom of the panel to find 2 screwdriver holes. Slide a screwdriver in one of them and gently pry open the panel.

SOURCE: ice build up
Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.

It is acutually a collector pan for the drain hose. When the refrigerator runs a defrost cycle (about every couple days), that pan collects the water from the ice that is melted and drains it through a hose inside the unit, to a pan under the unit. You will have to pull the back panel off the back of the freezer and melt it with either hot water or a hot blowdryer. Do it until you see the water draining freely into the bottom pan.
