Hi, I have a Hotpoint refrigerator model #CTX21. This refrigerator has hardly me any problems until now. The refrigerator does not seem to keep the foods cold. I'm notice foods seem to be spoiling quicker than normal. The freezer is doing fine

The most posible fault is a dirty condenser.
The condenser in your model is located behind the base grille on the bottom of the fridge. Remove the base grille by grasping it at the bottom andpulling it out. Now either sweep away or vacuum dust that is readily accesible.
This easy cleaning should be done at least once a year for most efficient operation.
Their is also a smaler posibility that the automatic defrost system which can be either the defrost thermostat or the defrost heater.
So if the condenser cleaning will not make a change after a couple of days then switch of the refigerator for tow hours and try to keep door closed so good not spoiled. then switch it on again and notice if you have desired temperature. You should find a thermometer so this will help you realise the deference in temperature more acurate.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Help? Top mount fridge not cooling?


many times there is a freon leak, and you have two choices. Go to a place like autozone and get a freon can with sealant (11 ounces or so) or take it into a hvac store and ask them to recharge. Many will test it for free and tell you whether it is good or bad. Usually not a thermostat problem but seals do go badk, and the sealant swells these up again.

The Ice maker in my mother in laws Hotpoint CTX21 refridgerator is no longer producing ice. I have water pressure in the water line going into the "valve" at the bottom rear of the fridge. And...


Replace the icemaker. It sounds to me as though the harvesting thermostat has gone bad and it would cost more to have a serviceman fix it than to just buy a new icemaker. This is a common problem that I've seen so many times !

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Hi! Hopefully the manual of a similar Hotpoint fridge witll help you. There may be not a unique reason of this problem. Seems that it might be a problem of a cube dispenser.
