SOURCE: Hidden Ice build-up inside plastic bottom cover of freezer

Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box.  The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals.  There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working.  About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts.  If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.

SOURCE: The frezer not cool enoug

you may not have enough air circulation at the rear of the machine when you moved it. if the machine can not loose heat through the radiator at the back it looses its cooling capacity. move it back to where it was?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side By SIde Refrigerator Freezer stopped cooling

5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

I have a hotpoint FF72P fridge freezer. it comes down to temperature (-22/+4) without any problem, but after this the compressor won't cut in.


takes time for the temperature inside the fridge -freezer to normalize after doors are being left open

turning off a fridge freezer on and off wont help it

it takes time to for the thermostat to kick start the compressor
and more time to reach the freezing temp lost

if you are certain the thermostat is damaged
call in a service man
have the thermostat replaced and have them check
the gas in the system is running the correct pressure

Ice maker does not seem to produce ice as fast. Is there a switch to increase/decrease amount?


No. Make sure the condenser coil on the bottom is clean, make sure the cooling fan for the condenser coil is working. Make sure there is enough clearance for air to reach the fan intake. Temperature of incoming water may affect the speed of Ice production if it's warmer.

Fan on gas wall heater shuts off and on every 3 minutes, but the flame is on the entire time.


It always helps to add the model number of the item you want help on. However if it's like the newer units, the fan operates whenever the heater wall has reached a high enough temperature and shuts off when the heater cools off. It is not wired into your thermostat or electrically wired to the heater. It does that with a temperature driven fan switch in a little junction box mounted to the heater. Normally when that box gets hot because the heater is on the fan comes on, when it cools off the fan goes off. The junction box will have an ac cord coming out of it. If this fan switch junction box is not properly mounted it could be getting cooled off when the fan starts and then shuts itself off. After it heats up again it starts the fan. The other possibility is the temperature based fan switch is failing and needs replacement. See link.

Hotpoint FZ175G red warning light comes on freezer still freezing after reset light comes on again after a couple of hours


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

Ice maker does not work


Hi ndfi,

If your ice maker wont work, it is often due to a defrost problem. If something is going on inside the freezer and the temperature is too warm, No Ice production. The ice maker needs to be at a certain point or temperature to make ice. Try putting a thermostat inside the freezer to see what the temperature is. It should be at least Zero. If not, turn the temperature of your refrigerator to the next coldest setting inside the freezer. Let it go for a day and see if the machine starts to make ice. Here are additional steps that you may apply on this issue.

1. The Fill tube for the Ice Maker may be froze. There is a tube that runs up the back wall of your fridge and enters the cabinet through a hole right behind the ice maker. If you look at the ice machine inside your freezer you will notice a tube entering it from the rear wall. This is the tube. Inspect the tube carefully with a flashlight to see if it's blocked with ice. If so, there's your problem. Use a hairdryer to thaw it out and your machine will be making ice.

2. If the tube feeding the ice maker is solid round. Like a paper towel roll. Cut a **** along the top of it to prevent it from freezing up again.

3. Check your Water valve for any loose or bad connections. On some refrigerator style ice makers you can easily check the valve using the hole in the front of the module.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Food defrosted in freezer--turned to coldest setting--there is some cold air coming in but seems only small amount-refrigerator is only "cool"-fan seems to be working


I believe part number W10135899 Defrost Control Board is defective. The board is located inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel. Near the temperature controls. Look at the rear wall of the freezer. If a layer of ice is forming on the rear wall of your freezer then it also is forming behind the rear panel of the freezer and restricting air flow. The Defrost Control Board is the most likely reason then there are 2 more things to have a look at. That is the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Would not be a bad time to manually defrost your freezer so you can bring temperatures down and replace the part. Unplug refrigerator, remove the rear panel inside back of freezer and defrost the evaporator coils with a hair dryer Or you can leave a bucket of hat water setting inside the freezer compartment with door shut for a while. Let me know what you find, again most like problem is the Defrost Control Board, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Have a hotpoint rsf60 fridge/freezer,noticed over temp red light on, defrosted as ice buid up on top shelf of freezer.light still on red temp set at 3/4 ?


The red warning light will not go out?

1. Has the fridge freezer just been
installed? If so, this is normal and the
light will go out when the correct
temperature has been reached.

2. Has the fridge freezer been loaded
with a large quantity of food? If so,
the light will go out when the correct
temperature has been reached.

3. Have the doors been closed
properly?
