Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
The Hotpoint side by side refrigerator is 52 degrees. I had to defrost this last week, because even thought the evaporator was frosted up, all my frozen foods thawed, and the refrigerator side was in the 60's. Once I got all the ice removed I plugged it back in and for about a week the temps have been good. Now I see the frost forming again in the frezeer and the refrigerator is up to 52 degrees. I opened the plastic air door in between the frezzer and refrigerator but it is still not cooling down. As a precautionary measure I removed the light bulbs. and checked all the door seals. This is only a three year old unit.
I am having the same problem with a Hotpoint side by side. (Model # hss22ifmd ww ) Could you tell me the more detailed info mentioned above. Thank you so much.

It sounds like you have a problem in the automatic defrost function. The most common problem on a Hotpoint/GE fridge is the defrost heater element burning out.
Remove the back wall from the inside of the freezer section and you will see the heater below the evaporator coil. You will need to check it with a volt/ohm meter to know for sure if it is bad, but that is the most likely problem.
If you will post the complete model number I will try to give more detailed advise.
