IF the freexer is working fine then the evap thermistor is gone..

if both are not working then its the fan .....
at the back when the motor is

My hotpoint mistral fridge/freezer is freezing very will, but ther fridge is not cooling. What could be wrong?

Hi. I had the same problem (funnily just as my warranty had run out) hotpoint wanted about £90 plus parts for a call out. You need to replace the Yellow thermistor in the freezer compartment (quite easy with a cross screwdriver and thin fingers). I got mine from Uk White Goods for about £20 they give advice too. Solved it instantly. Thanks HOTPOINT, wont be spending £600 with you again. Good Luck.
