Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
Hi and Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
There are many things that can cause your existing symptoms.
1. The Unit is controlled by an all-in-one control board that often is the main failure.
This l;ink is used as an example but is the control board for your unit:
2. The PTC Relay Device (Danfoss)

3. The run capacitor: (Again no picture) 4 uf cap
4. The Thermistor PN 2601683 (not sure about part number as many conflicts with cross ref)
5. The actual compressor (1/5 hp) PN 2603850 or Type TWB1374MK
Any of the above can cause your problem. Check the compressor. If it is VERY hot to the touch unplug the unit for 30 minutes and then plug it in again.
If the compressor is cold the only thing you can do is start troubleshooting with the units wiring diagram and a meter.
I wish I could say _______ is causing your problem. Without testing components and knowing they are bad I can not say order _____ part. If your good with a meter and can locate the units tech sheet / wiring diagram you can isolate the failed part. Otherwise all I can say is what can cause your symptom as listed above.
