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

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!

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.
