Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
You have ice buildup on the bottom of your freezer. Two things will cause this:
1.) A frozen drain. This is common. You unit goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours for 20-30 minutes. Everything shuts down except for the lights. You defrost heater is turned on. If your drain is frozen the condensate has no where to go except for the bottom of the freeze.
2.) A restriction in your refrigerant seal system capillary tube or you have a refrigerant leak. If you have a block of ice build up in the upper right hand corner of you freezer evaporator (Cooling) coil, then you have a major problem. You are probably looking a $450.00 + repair.
You will have to remove the freezer back wall cover to determine which situation you have.
