Sounds like a bad compressor relay on the main control board . To verify , pull the refrig out and unplug . Remove the 8X10 small cover , to expose the control board . Look for the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it and disconnect from the board . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire 3 . Use a jumper from wire1 to wire3 and plug the refrig back in . This will send power directly to the compressor , indicating the board is bad if the compressor starts . If it starts , remove the control board and look on the solder side just opposite the " black boxes " and look for a bulls eye ( pin in the middle where the solder has melted away from it . Resolder this pin . If no bulls eye , replace the main board as the relay is shorted internally . If replaceing the board , your model NUMBER is important to get the correct board . Only 2 boards but model number necessary .

Hy i have a problem with my fridge freezer , the fridge compartment is acting like a freezer going up to -16


There is normally an adjustment knob inside the fridge, in the back or top to allow you to adjust the coldness. Numbered 1-9.
If you have already adjusted that it would help if I know the type (side by side, freezer on top or below) and the brand. Most side by sides blow some of the air from the freezer side into the fridge side with internal fans and vents. How is the freezer side coldness knob adjusted?
I would set both knobs to 5 and go get yourself a outdoor thermometer to put in each side. It should be about 35 in the fridge and about zero in the freezer. Remember it will be warmer in the top and colder in the bottom of each.
Was the thermostat you replaced in the freezer or fridge?

I bought a whirlpool fridge freezer last two weeks it was working fine but i noticed that the freezer is making too much ice when i set it at temperature 7 which is melting and i keep seeing water under...


Water under it is fine as long as it is not on the floor. It should be in a pan that came with the unit. You should have 2 temp setting for the unit..1 for the freezer and one for the frid. set the freezer for 5 to start. and then set the frig at 5. and adjust only the fridg side after a few hours. If this does not wrok call the place you bought it from as it may have a bad swthch on the indoor fan or a bad flapper door that allows cold air from the freezer to cool the fridg. But you have to start at mid range and adjust only the fridge side moving it up or down buy 1 number at a tiem.. Let me know know. I hope this helps Jon

#1 is warmest going colder as you go upto #7.fridges should be set at +3C,adjusting the control for summer and winter.you could do the lettuce test,if it goes soggy/black,its too cold.

What is the lowest setting on the temp on a Hotpoint Ctf18ga


Hello Dustin,

Typically the lower the Letter or Number is the warmer setting for the freezer or fridge section. If you want to make them colder, move the control setting ONE (1) increment at a time, in any 24 hour time period (up or down) and allow the fridge to adjust before making another change in the settings.

Again, A is warmer than B, and 1 is warmer than 2, and so on. So going to a higher letter or number, will make the unit colder.

Just remember it will take at least 24 hours for your unit to adjust and compensate for the changes, so only make them gradually, so you can tell if you've reached the desired cooling settings for both the fridge and the freezer. Typically, most manufacturers recommend that the starting position be in the middle of the dial and that you adjust them up or down from there.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

I recently purchased a home. The kitchen has a


Firstly, the thermostats are usually calibrated at one elevation and where the fridge ends up may be above or below that so the number settings on the dial aren't that relevant. You should adjust the thermostat in increments then check the temperature after 24 hours, then adjust again if necessary. The fridge should be as close to 40 degrees F. as possible and the freezer about 26 degrees F. (if memory serves me). The heat you detected is the unit in defrost cycle and should be considered normal if intermittent and a problem if constant. There should be a switch to turn off and on the defrost feature if you determine it's a problem.
I hope this helps you and good luck.

Fridge side is not cooling, freezer side is fine

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
