Refrigerator freezer not cold


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 frig,top freezer motor runs contiunally, thermostat set in middle of temp. control. side of frig stays cool all time.[does not get warm as it used to] is defrost thermostat bad or timer?


niether. is there frost on back wall of freezer? if no look behind back wall and see if there is frost on all the coils when running. if less than 80% is frosty...freon. or is there frost covering back panel..if so then defrost problem would be correct. but side would be warm so I think not.

I have a Hotpoint model HSS221FMD & works when I unplug, & thaw freezer. Then after a while running, the cooling stops on the fridge side & the freezer cools a little & frosts up


This sounds like a bad thermostat. not a very expensive fix but i would call in the pro's mainly due to its location and frail parts. This should be around $100. Give or take a little. Good luck.

Freezer fan not running


Often times the defrost termination switch (which opens when it gets warm enough) will hold the fan off until it closes again when the freezer runs. It is possible that the switch is not closing, but be sure the freezer is getting cold enough for it to close.

You know the freezer is likely cold enough when you see frost covering the entire evaporator coil after a few hours of operation. A partial frost pattern could indicate low refrigerant, or a restriction of refrigerant.

Freezer not freezing


when the freezer is not freezing, check the fan and fan motor in the freezer section. It should be running when the compressor is running. Check for frost. If you see frost on the rear inside panel, the frost is usually about 3 in. thick on the inside. Check and make sure the fan next to the compressor is running, if your's has one. It will run when the compressor is running. Check for gaps in your door gasket. If there is no frost, both fans are running, compressor is running, and no gaps, and your coils outside the refrigerator are clean, it doesn't sound good.
