Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a hotpoint freezer 8721. The top compartment is consistently freezing up really quickly, which makes it difficult to close the door,which ultimately means im forever defrosting the freezer. I have altered the freezer settings to Economy and obviously not fast freeze, is there anything else i can do, is there another setting i can change that ive missed? Many thanks

Check your door seal gaskets on the freezer door. Your model number is incomplete but I take it that this is not a frost free model. Placing a dollar bill between the frame and the door in the closed position should give resistance when slid or pulled. If not your door seal gasket could be bad or your door out of adjustment.

Subzero refrigerator/freezer, model 590. Door gaskets replaced last year, but it still ices up in top front of freezer? Any ideas?


Ice or frost in the freezer can be caused by one of Three issues:
    • An improperly closed door.
    • Improper ventilation of the freezer.
    • The Ice Maker Flap.
    1. Door Not Closed Properly
    • Make sure that the freezer door closes completely.
    • Make sure that the door gaskets are attached properly to the door and that they are clean. Also, make sure they are sealing properly and are not torn or split.
    Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. If you can pull the dollar out with no resistance, the seals should be replaced.
    • Make sure there are no packages resting against the rear wall of the freezer.
2. Improper Ventilation
    • Make sure there are no packages resting against the rear wall of the freezer.
    • Space your food out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
    • Make sure that the air vent in the freezer is not blocked.
    Refrigerator Compartment
    If your refrigerator is freezing food, the temperature is set too low. Raise the temperature a few degrees to fix the problem.
    If your refrigerator temperature is too high, condensation may build up and freeze on the bottom of the refrigerator. Lower the temperature a few degrees to fix the problem.

My Horpoint fridge freezer top drawer in freezer keeps freezing up and drawer is difficult to open.


Incorrect defrost cycle or your door seals are leaking.
To test the door seals, use a piece of news paper close the door with the news paper in between of the door and seal.
If you can pull it through really easy then the seal is at fault if not then check your cooling fan in the freezer section it should be running.

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees


Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

I have a hotpoint csx27h side by side refrigerator. the freezer get cold but the fridge part just started to where it wouldnt cool down. any suggestions? maybe the defrost?? the only things i have noticed...


check the operation of your damper door between the freezer and refrige compartments,this door opens and closes to throttle cold air from freezer to refrigerator compartment through the cold control,sometimes they freeze upand can't move,sounds like your door has frozen closed,if so,remove entire damper door unit,clean and deice,replace and see if this rectifies your troubles

My hotpoint under counter freezer isn't freezing properly


A freezer has a very simple operating design and there are only 2 customer serviceable components.
1. Make sure the cold control is set at the proper level.
2. Make sure that the door seal is making good contact with the cabinet. You can apply a thin coat of Vaseline to the door seal to help tight closure of the door.
Keep the door opening to a minimum during extreme heat conditions. Any small air leak can drastically reduce the operating norms during extreme heat conditions.
That's about all that you can do to regain control, the rest will have to be performed by a refrigeration tech. if you are still dissatisfied.

Freezer door rubbing


take the freezer door off and put a washer or two on the bottom hinge. sometimes there are extra plastic washers on the top hinge that you can move to the bottom to lift it up.
also check if the hinge is bent or loose, as this may cause the problem.
