Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The temperature in both the freezer and refrigerator sides is not cold. Ice cream is like syrup and there is frost on the back wall of the freezer. It is cold, but not cold enough. The door closes well and I have the temperature at 5 now, previously at 4 with no problems.

Hi,

All the cooling coils for this model are in the freezer section. There is a fan down there behind the back wall on the top. This fan directs air up to the fresh food section.

Check the temperature of the freezer you can do this by inspecting the ice cream, if the ice cream is soft you are above 5 degrees F. If you have a good cold freezer then the problem is with air flow, the evaporator fan that I spoke of could be bad).

If your freezer temperature is not as cold as it should be you may have a defrost problem, look for any signs of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, if you see frost you will most likely need to put in a new control.

If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal and you do not have frost you may have a sealed system leak, this will require a technician for sure.

bad door seals, frosted up coils, low refrigerant, dirty/clogged condenser coils (under fridge), bad condenser fan. check the fan in the back. clean out the coils with a vacuum under the fridge. see if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer. if there is, you'll have to remove the back wall and defrost the coils with a hair dryer. check the door seals for leaks. replace if necessary. if all is well and still warm, you have a freon leak. call in the pros.

Side by side Sub Zero not cold enough.


How old is "OLDER" ? If there is no frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer you could have one of two problems. On older units the compressor wears out with years of service and no longer pumps efficiently. Or it could possibly be low on refrigerant charge. ether one of these two problems is a sign that is time to update to new unit.

If you have frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer section you then would have a problem in the defrost circuit attributed to the timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat.
