    Hi, the summer is so hot in GA, and I have 2 little kids. My refridge is not cold anymore. I bought this 4 yrs ago and lost its instuction booklet. Now I can not find my model with Hotpoint (HSM25GFTASA) side by side. Please help me to fix it. I took the all foods out, cleaned the dust behind the refridge, pulled the cord out and clean inside. I wait for the water melt completely before plug it in again. Is there any trouble shoot to make it cold as normal before. Thank you so much. My email: nguyentrang50@hotmail.com.

My refrigerator/freezer is warm


If the motor is running but it's not getting cold then you may have lost coolant. Did someone clean the ice out with a knife?

Fridge and freezer at 50 degrees with settings on max cold. I can hear compressor cycling and all power is on. Suggestions?


Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:

Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.

Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.

Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.

Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.

Hope this helps...

Our 3 months old refrigrator will get so cols that freezes food products.


There are actually 2 cold controls on refrigerator-freezers. The main control is within the refrigerator cavity, the other is located in the freezer cavity. The one in the freezer is usually only a cold air deflector. It takes the cold air that is produced and divides it proportionally between the freezer and refrigerator sides. Set the control in the refrigerator to about mid-range. Set the control in the freezer to mid range. That is your starting point. If the freezer is not cold enough, adjust the freezer control. If the refrigerator s not cold enough, adjust the fridge control. After any adjustments, you MUST wait at least 24 hours for the temp to equalize before making any more adjustments. It may take a week to get it set right. This is true for all refrigerator-freezer combinations. Be patient.

The freezer should be set at 4 or 5 to start. If that is not cold enough then move the temp knob to 6 or 7 to get it colder. the higher the # the colder it will get. Onse you set the new temp it will take around 4 hrs to get to the new setting.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
