What is best way to defrost hotpoint future rf175b


The model number you gave is not valid. To defrost a fridge you have two options.
Is this a manual defrost? If so boil pot of water and set on rack inside the freezer. You will have to remove big chunks of ice.
Auto defrost fridges. Option 1- Unplug fridge open doors and leave for 24-48 hrs. A bit messy with this so have towels around fridge to soak up water.Option 2- Unplug fridge remove access panel on back wall inside freezer. Take hair dryer and melt all the ice inside on the coils. If you have an ice block you have a problem replace bi metal/efrost thermistat. Heater and/or defrost timer may also be out.
If you have an Ice block on auto defrost models always change the bi metal because they get warped usually inside and ruin them. Test heat with continuity tester and defrost timer by manually advanceing just before shutdown time and letting run through cycle. Should stay in defrost between 8 and 30 minutes.

If you need further assistance or have any questions please comment me back.

I purchased a Sears Counter Craft Crock Watcher crock pot at an Estate Sale, but there is no instruction booklet. It has low, high, and auto shift on the dial. Can you help provide some instructions for...


From a couple of different slow cooker manuals - most I looked at are the same:

When in the AUTO setting, the slow cooker will begin cooking on HIGH and then will shift to LOW after approximately 2 hours of cooking time. AUTO setting does not turn off the unit. Other favorite recipes may be adapted to the slow cooker. All times listed in the following chart are approximate and should serve only as cooking guidelines.

Regular Cooking Slow Cooker Cooking Times

1 (Low) 2 (High) AUTO

30 minutes 6-8 hrs. 3-4 hrs. 5-7 hrs.

35-60 minutes 8-10 hrs. 5-6 hrs. 6-8 hrs.
1-3 hours 10-12 hrs. 7-8 hrs. 8-10 hrs.

Orange glow coming from inside freezer back of freezer warm


HI. that glow will be the defrost element. If that element continues to glow for a long period of time, longer than an hour, this will indicate that there are issues that concern the integrity of the defrost timer, or adaptive defrost control board. I would advise to shut off the power to the unit for five minutes. this will rest all the control boards that exist in the units structure. re-introduce the power to the unit, after the five minutes are up. If the element continues to glow, continuously, this will confirm that the defrost module has failed.(stuck in the defrost position). replace the either the defrost timer, or adaptive defrost control board(depending on the model), if the reset did not correct the issue.

Hi, fan may have stuck, but you could have a defrost problem, check defrost heater, thermodisc(defrost thermostat) and defrost timer. or excessive moisture, if your days are hot, or if you put hot foods in ref. could result in excessive ice build up. you can manually defrost it, by unpluging ref. for couple of hrs, until all ice melted. then restart. you make get excessive water on floor. be prepared.

If defrost timer is clockworks type, manually force timer into run mode using flat blade screwdriver. If forcing works, replace defrost timer ($25.00 approx).
