I have a frost free hotpoint and theres ice on the freezer door and the food inside it what could this be and how,do i fix it


Hallo

Frost free means there is an evaporater coil behind the backplate of the inside of your fridge.

How it works is a fan is for example installed in the lower back of your fridge and the evaporater above the fan covered by a plastic cover/steel plate and now the fan is pulling the warm air from the top over the evaporater ( the evaporater is then pulling the warm air into the evaporater without increasing the temperature of the evaporater) and dehumidify at the same time and blowing the cold air out a the bottom of the backplate while the warm air moving to the top where it could repeatedly repeat this action.

Tell me what is the condition of your freezers door seal? It can only be caused by humidity getting in so it mean the door is not sealing 100%.

Regards

Fridge is not cold. Freezer working fine, damper door fully functional, but no air blowing through. No ice, but minor frosting on evap coils. Cannot locate defrost timer.


The most common failure is the fan that blows cold air from the evaporator coils into the refrigerator cabinet.
The defrost timer is usually on the back lower part of most older fridges, or behind the front "kick strip"

My ice maker does not work


Hi there one of the biggest reasons for not getting cold which will affect the ice maker also is -- low or no air flow.
2 areas - 1) inside the freezer section are vents and they should have some clear areas (our freezer often gets crammed full of stuff)
2) under and behind the fridge is a dust bunny breeding area - pull the fridge out and get as much dust and stuff off the coils as possible (I use a vacuum and a small paint brush). The coils transfer the heat out of the fridge like an air conditioner. Be gentle - coils are somewhat fragile.
Some fridges have a faceplate that pops off at the front.

The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The ideal temp for the freezer is around 10 degrees F.
Look at the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer and check the ice forming on the coils.

Fridge is not cold enough, freezer is working fine, but has frost


Just had the same problem with my side-by-side.

In my case, the solution was to empty the freezer side, to access a back panel INSIDE the freezer covering the fan and cooling coils. Two screws held the back panel cover on, and when I removed the panel cover I found the cooling coils to be totally iced up, preventing the flow of cold air into the fridge side. I left the freezer open for a few hours until all the ice was melted, before replacing the inside panel. (I used a blow dryer to help speed up the ice melting).

Everything's working fine now for me - good luck with yours!

Unplug the unit, open the freezer door and look through the vents at the bottom of the back wall. With enough light you should see the alluminum coil through the vents. If there is ice/frost in the vents your coils are frozen up. Remove the cover on the inside back wall of the freezer you may need to remove the ice maker as well if you have one it just plugs into the back wall there is also a plug behind the cover to the back upper left corner. Once the cove is out of the way use a hair dryer to defrost the coils or leave the unit unpluged for a while. After all the ice is gone reinstall the cover and turn the unit on it will probably work for 3-10 days and then the process must be repaeted again. I replaced the defrost thermostat on mine 2 weeks ago and all is good so far. The defrost thermostat is a little round device that snaps onto the small copper line in the upper right corner behind back cover it has 2 blue wires and cost's about $20.

Hope this helps

Fridge not cool


the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.
