Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint CSX24GRXA side by side refrigerator. The freezer side started having cooling problems in that it would get too cold, so I adjusted the thermostat to warm up the freezer. Then, I noted that the center post between the two doors in front is getting VERY warm to the touch. I looked underneath, and the coils are extremely dusty, so I am going to clean them out tonite and see if that helps. I know that there are defrost heaters in refrigerators, does it make any sense that the vertical post between the two doors is getting very warm?? Hopefully, the cleaning of the coils will take care of it, but if it does not, I was looking for other things to check. Thanks!!

Ok one thing at a time . the center post that is hot is a sing that the coils need to be cleaned and that the compressor is running to hot . this will also cause over run times and this causes tempt problems . such as too cold for the settings . so clean coil and if it look good the you did a good job and ck the fan blads and clean them too . they can't run properly if dirty and out of balance . some warmth on the center post is normal but if very hot then thing are getting dirty .. hope this helps mm

Refrigerator side of hotpoint side by side quit working - replaced the control panel and it is still not working. the crisper drawers seem to be colder than the refrigerator part, but it is still not cool...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
