Question about Hotpoint  21.8 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator freezer not cold

My top Freezer on a Hotpoint refrigerator/freezer (appx 21 cu ft) seems to run in defrost mode every 24 - 48 hours. I'm wondering what I can test (faulty parts) before I call a service technician. I'm very tech and electrical savvy, but have never worked on major appliances before.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Is there anything else that makes you think this is a problem.

Hotpoint sidebyside--freezer back panel has ice on it.


It could be the defrost timer the defrost heater or the defrost termostat You can check the heaters for continuity or when the freezer is all cover with ice turn the timer (located in the cold control box inside the refrigerator ) untill the compresor stops and if the heaters start glowing the timer is bad.

You have a defrost problem. Refrigerator gets cold via freezer. If blocked with frost, will restrict cold air into refrigerator.

Kenmore 21 refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold (top) - perhaps not all the way


you have a defrost prblem or a leak in the sealed system.if you see frost built up on back freezer wall then it is a defrost problem also check evaporator fan motor to see if it is running.if machine is in defrost you wont hear it.so when compressor is running see if fan is running.
