if i read the english right, the compressor runs but the freezer fan only runs for a short time. no fan then no cooling. there is a fan stat so that the fan only runs when the evap is down to temp. this may be faulty. also on some hotpoint, the fan switches off when door opened. check door switch operating ok. this may also explain problem with fridge lamp

It snaps in place by lifting the plastic cover. Then when you replace push it in then down. It has two tabs one on each end.

SOURCE: Lights staying on

You need to replace the door switch, as it is allowing the interior light to stay on, but also it's keeping the fridge section circulating fan from coming on, and that is what is really causing the interior to heat up.

It's located in the top hinge plate cover and you can test for faulty operation by removing the switch and connecting or disconnecting the wires together to see if your light goes out and the circulating fan starts to run. If so, the switch needs to be replaced.

The part number is #6600JB3007K and costs about $8.00. You can order it from several online sellers or at www.searspartsdirect.com

Here's a diagram of your fridge and the parts list with pricing.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: lights stay on in fridge

HI. The door switch will be the culprit here.

The interior light in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, are controlled by a door switch. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

I can't figure out how to remove the light bulb cover to change the light bulb. Followed directions in manual, but it won't budge. I fear breaking it--it takes only light pressure supposedly!


Some of the covers are molded plastic, give them a squeeze and they should release from one side. Some have metal latches on a glass panel to flip out of the way before you can slide them one direction or the other... but the manual is correct, it shouldn't take much force.

Lightbulb not working in fridge freezer.How do I remove panel to get to bulb


Try pushing the sides of the plastic to remove it. Then you can access the bulb. Do not remove the bulb with your bare hand. Use a dry towel because if the bulb breaks in your hand, you have a problem. Unplug the fridge when you do this.

My sub zero 690 has the fridge & freezer light out as well as the screen


Well the most likely cause is 2 bad door switches, though I rarely see the door switch go bad in the freezer. At the top of the door openings you will see 2 switches in the freezer and the fridge. If you pull down the grille and remove the cover over those switches, the light switch will be the one with the white back, and the fan switch will be the one with the black back. I would try changing the switch in the fridge, and maybe start in the freezer by changing at least 1 bulb before blaming the switch. If that 1 new bulb doesn't light, change that switch too.

Please check the door switch and the bulb holders, in some cases it can be due to loose connection or a faulty switch on the door, The failure of the bulb is another issue but the main subject is how you can check and remove the bulb.

I have a Hotpoint HMB313I integrated fridge freezer. When I open the fridge door no light comes on. Should there be a light in the fridge? If so, could you tell me please where the light(bulb) is located...


Hi!!

The light bulb is usually located in the center top of the fridge box, you may need to get on your knees and look up to see it. They usually just screw out, in case there is a plastic cover, just squeeze it and remove it. The replacement bulb can be found at Walmart or KMar it is call Appliance Bulb.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

It would have been really helpful if you could have provided the model number. You can always find it at the back of your freezer. Here are some links to videos which should be useful for you.
