Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
I have a Hotpoint Model HSS25GFP. Neither the refrigerator or freezer will get to temperature. The refrigerator side is at 60 degrees and the Freezer is 35 degrees. I have both sides set to 9, the coldest setting. I have cleaned the coils, but when I plug in the unit the motherboard clicks but the fan blade doesn't kick on. I don't know if it should start when you plug it in or not but I don't know if its a thermostat or motherboard or compressor or fan. I just need some help please.
Hi... I don't know this particular machine... but I'll assume there are 2 separate thermostats as the temps are different. The purpose of the fan is simply to circulate cold air... It doesn't matter if there is one or two compressors as a fault is affecting both sides... I would say motherboard/supply problem.

Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. Catriver...post back.

the fridge thermostat is not a true thermostat it controls a damper door the freezer thermostat runs the compressor in order for your refrigerators to reach the proper temp the freezer should be about -8 to-10 set your freezer thermostat lower and see if it gets lower .at the mid point setting it should be about -8 not 6 you may have a problem with its thermostat or a leak in your system reply to me tomorrow and tell me if lowering the freezer thermostat help we want it about -8or-10 and the best way to check your refrigerator temp is put a glass of water in it and stick your thermometer in it and if need be you can e mail me at email@example.com just referance your promblem

SOURCE: REFRIGERATOR DOES NOT STAY COLD
Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

Did you clean the condenser? Is the unit FULLY defrosted? Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit? If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more. R12 is expensive.
Check gas level: Shut unit for at least one hour. View compressor. Several pipes...we're looking at the largest. Start the unit. This pipe will begin to frost. If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low. Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.
