Question about Refrigerators
Hi ive had the same problem and solved it thank god !!! it happend to me about three times tll i sussed it.well here goes disconect from the mains defrost then you have to empty the freezer and remove the large plastic cooling panel at the back thers about 10 torque screws to undo. then you have to carefully remove the silver foil strip along the back of the cooling finns,the problem is that the ice on the fins builds up over time and collects on the strip and clogs the whole thing up. its been over a year and no problems since then and the fridge is as cold as ever good luck, will.

This model is one of the worst that Hotpoint has made in their history.
I got mine and the first time it failed 11 months after bought. Call out warranty, technician arrive and replace main controller board. Six months later, failed again. Defrost it and started working. A year later it failed again, the recirculation duct from the freedge to the freezer, gets blocked by ice. There is something wrong with the defrost system. My next move before buying a new one will be to replace the defrost switch.
Not recommend to anybody.

I had the same problem. I recommend recycling the thing, researching the available models in your price range and buying a repalcement.
