Hotpoint refrigerator side by side


All of the cold air for the refrigerator comes from the freezer. Is there any ice build up behind the shelves in your freezer?

Only bottom half of refrigerator And freezer is cold


Do a full defrost and then be sure the door is closed when not actually getting things in/out. Don't forget to check to see if your condenser coils are clean. If not, clean 'em! That may fix it.

If your defrost coil is bad then you have to replace it. It is located in the back of the freezer behind the panel. when you remove the panel you will see frost build up if the coil is bad.

Top portion offreezer is warm bottom is cold


Sounds like the defrost heater is bad . Part number WR51X10055 . You will need to remove the 2 or 4 screws , holding the lower portion of the inside rear freezer panel . The heater , is attached to the bottom of the coils , held on by 2 screws . You should also replace the defrost thermostat , Part number WR50X10068 . This is the 1 " cylinder , clipped to the top of the coils , with a blue and pink wire attached to it . This bimetal (defrost thermostat) , cuts the heater off , when/if the temp behind the panel gets to 140 degrees , therefore , keeping the food from defrosting .

Won't freeze on freezer side ( defrosting) and won't get cold on refridgerator side


If you have confirmed that the unit is defrosting and the freezer isn't getting cold. Make sure underneath the refrigerator is completely clean and the fan is running underneath the refrigerator next to the coils. If this all checks out then you have a bad compressor or lost of refrigerant due to a leak in the system. One last thing: Is the cooling fan running in the freezer?

Does not get cold


I'm not sure if you mean it's not getting cold enough or dot at all.
The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. If there is a lot of build up then the defrost timer may need to be replaced.
Most of the time the evaporator coils and fan are located behind panels in the freezer section. These are usually easy to remove. The defrost timer is a different story and may require the help of a service person.
Hope this helps.

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

Heres you problem your drain plug in freezer is likely frozen as well and water is running under fridge. You have to replace the thermostat defroster assembly Its behind the panel at rear of freezer and runs down and under condenser coils. Part cost $42 and plugs in its easy to replace It creates heat which keeps the coils free of ice and also keeps drain from freezing.
