Not enough info. When blowing hot air, is the compressor running? Is unit an electroinc control or mechanical th/stat with defrost timer. Ill go with what i think.Possibly you fridge is stuck on auto defrost. Inside on the evap.plate is a clixon.(round device with 2 wires comming out ) This item is possibly gone faulty."not opening at a certain temp." making the heat increase in the freezer. find the defrost timer and forward the shaft untill compressor comes on. If it comes on, keep your eyes on the fridge for a 12 hour period. if it happens again after that, call the tech.(normally defrost timer is at the back by the compressor.)

My Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer only works with the freezer at the bottom and the fridge is fed from the freezer via ducting to the fridge at the top ---- can anyone tell me why the freezer works perfectly and...


There has to be something restricting the air flow to the fridge. If the fan is running blowing cold air into the freezer, then it should be cooling the fridge too. Empty out the fridge and freezer and use a blow drier to blow hot air into the duct work. There could be an ice blockage not visible in the duct work.

Is the condenser fan blowing air over the coils? These symptoms sound like a bad condenser fan. Hope this helps.

My freezer frosted over everything because the door was not shut tight and now it will not clear.


take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck

if you can hear the fan still blowing but no cold air coming up to fridge section a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open and the air ducts freeze up and the air can't blow up to the top.turn the control off in the freezer.remove the top shelf and the door,check to see if there are any screws one on each side of the slide arms,if there are remove them and lift the door up and out,with a hair dryer melt out the ice by blowing the hot air up each side of the back wall,also if the back inside wall of the freezer is covered with ice or like snow then you have a defrost problem but if there's no ice on back wall do what i said and blow the air up the sides of the back wall through the vents until no more water is seen dripping through the vent holes,then turn the freezer back on and check to see if you feel cold air blowing in through the vents in the fridge section,if you feel cold air then you're all set,if not keep blowing the hot air up the sides until it's melted out.let me know what you find,you'll know if the door was left open,ice will be on the ceiling near the light switch and sometimes on the top of the freezer door.
However if fan has quit totally then it will have to be replaced since it is responsible for cooling the upper part of the fridge

Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
