In most cases, this is caused by a bad door seal. If air is allowed to enter the freezer, the automatic defrost won't be able to keep up. Put a dollar bill in the door and shut it. When you slowly pull it out, sou should feel resistance. If not, the seal needs to be replaced. If this isn't the case, look for possible mouse damage at the back of the unit, where the pipes go through.

How to defrost


If this is an automatic defrost or "no-frost" freezer and it has developed a lot of frost and ice, call a repairman. That should never happen.

But if it's a manual defrost model, follow this procedure.
1. Turn off the freezer. Then remove all the food and toss it into a picnic cooler to keep it frozen. (Some blue ice packs will help.)
2. Open the drain on the bottom of the freezer, and put the end of the hose from the drain (which most have) into a roasting pan to catch the water from the melted frost.
3. Leave the door open. If you have a small electric space heater, blow warm air into the freezer to speed up the melting process.
4. Don't scrape the ice -- you could puncture a cooling coil in some units, making the freezer useless.
5. In about 30 or 40 minutes (15 with the space heater) the ice will be melted.
6. Dry the interior with a towel, toss the food back in, turn the freezer on again, and you're done.

Hotpoint fridge freezer icing up freezer and fridge does not work


Does your model have independent thermostats for the fridge & freezer???

If not, could be that you will need to change the Thermostat.
These are not expensive - around £10 if you buy on the Internet.
Easy to fit yourself...just turn off the power, remove the power plug from the wall, then unscrew the 'stat unit from inside near the top of the fridge (some are attached to the interior light) and remove the screw holding the thermostat tube to the rear wall.
Often the thermostat gets a small hole somewhere in the long tube, which then lets all the gas escape, making the stat useless.
You can see these small holes in the pipe if you use a magnifying eyeglass, like the kind Jewellers use.

Your problem could be caused by a clogged drainage tube. even though you may have removed the ice it may still have a clog. my suggestion would be to take all of the contents out of your fridge and let it sit unplugged for atleast 24-48 hours with the doors open this will eliminate any left over ice that may be clogging your drain tube. if this dosent help then you may have a defrost heater problem, or possibly a defrost termination switch problem. as for the smell i know that vinegar works well for getting rid of odor. ther eis also a product you can purchase called fridge aid, it is a charcoal based air purifier and should work well.

Not sealing. warm air hitting cold air causing frost. also, door frame heater may not be working. most frames are "warm" to the touch. normally called an "anti sweat" heater.
