Yes, if your freezer is cold but fan is not circulating cold air into frig compartment then you should replace it . You will have to take off back panel of freezer to access it but is easy to replace. Hope this helps

I have model number PDE18LZRBB. Freezer works fine; refrigerator section will not cool properly.


Your problem is usually caused by poor air circulation. The only way the refrig section gets cold is from the fan in the freezer blowing cold air into the refrig section. The fan should be behind the back wall of the freezer and should be running at the same time the complete refrigerator is running. No fan run---no cold in the fresh food section.

Hotpoint refridgeerator side by side fan not working nor does the compressor?


First thing I'd do is defrost it completely, that means turning it off for a few hours with door open & letting the ice melt, you could be getting a buildup of ice in your freezer jamming the fan before the automatic defrost has time to clear it. Also check that the seals are sealing completely, (that can allow frost to form in freezer), if not use a hair dryer to soften them (gently) & mould them back into line.

Hello, My fridge side of my hotpoint model # Hsm25gftc sided by side fridge/freezer isn't getting cold anymore. I purchased it in 2007 I believe. I've tore the ice maker and tray out and pulled...


if the freezer is working fine it sounds like you could have a bad damper control,also there's another thing i want you to check first,hotpoint is a g.e. product,they have sensors in the machines,you said you had the back wall off,take it off again and on top of the evap coil you'll see a sensor,it looks like a white bullet with two whits wires going to it,look at it and if where the wires connect to it it has a black ring around it you have to change it out,also ther's one of these sensors in the fidge section too,it senses how cold the fridge is and tells the damper door to open and close,it sounds like your damper is staying shut,the part number for the temp. sensors are WR55X10025 and it's like 8 dollars,if they have the black ring on them they most likely are your problem,the new sensors are all white,if you have the white sensors then you could have a bad damper.go to this site,it's sears site http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Hotpoint-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-HSM25GFTCSA/1811/0165000/H0712760/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= go to the fresh food diagram and look at the damper and the sensor,one of these parts are badmalso g.e. has had alot of problems with the mother boards,the computer board in the back of the fridge,if the condenser fan and evap fans are running fine and the freezer is fine then i would replace the damper and the sensor but change out the sensor first because it's 8 bucks,if that doesn't do it then buy the damper,all it does is the fan blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge section,if the damper isn't opening the air can't enter into the fridge section.hope this helps and points you in the right derection,let me know how you make out,good luck salde

Frigidaire top-mount refig. freezer won't get cold ,temp.stays around 26 degrees, refrig. don't keep milk cold enough


check that the evaporator fan motor ,located in freezer is working.it circulates the cold air.also check that the coils behind freezer back panel are not iced up,this would indicate a lack of defroting due to,timer,heating element,or bi-metal.lastly when the refrig is running those coils should get frost over them all,if not you may be low on refigerant

Freezer is cooling, but refrigator is not cooling


take a look at your evaporator fan motor in the freezer to make sure it is running and not built up with ice around it. this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer into the fridge to cool the fridge. you say the freezer is "cooling" , is it freezing??

HSS25GFPA WW HOTPOINT REFRIG.


Please don't rate this solution because people generally don't rate well when it's bad news, even though the response is correct. When the DC evap. motor goes out, it can take out the motherboard. (located behind the small panel on back of the refrig.)
