Question about Hotpoint RLM80 Refrigerator

RLA80 FRIDGE IS ALWAYS DRIPPING WET

My fridge is always dripping wet, I have noticed a 3/4" gap at the top. The door is not closing fully, I can lift it and it seems to close better. I think the bottom hinge is knacked. Do you think that is problem, should I change full hinge? Or could it be something else?

The cold air is leaking that's why there's condensation build up outside... a fast way to check is to get a plastic card and try to slide it through the rubber seals or the door all around. if it passes through easily then you have a leak in that area. a good door seal won't let your plastic card pass thru easy.

    regarding the hinge, tighten the screws. rust build up could have made the hinge attachments weak.

Freezer not getting cold and dripping water


I own a similar Kitchen Aid fridge that had a defrost icing issue: Kitchen Aid KSRP25FNBL00
> Ice had plugged the drain hole at bottom of chill coil section inside the freezer compartment.
> I learned that the coil, circulation fan was not working, but condenser was working.
> I paid a tech to replace the circ fan, about $200, including a new swiss-made fan. He said it was unusual for these fans to fail, but not unheard of.
Expensive, but saved the purchase of a new fridge. Has worked great for 6 months since then.
HOpe that helps.

Sanyo mini refridgerator won't get cold


This sounds to me like your fridge might be in defrost mode. There should be a switch up toward the top of the fridge near the cold setting. It's not always very visible, but feel around for a little round hole. There should be a small, plastic rod sticking out. Push it back in. (If it's out.) If this is the problem, you should hear the compressor turn on and the fridge should start cooling off again. If you still have the owners manual, it'll probably point you to its exact location.

I hope this helps! :)

THE fridge is continuously dripping condensation inside down the panel and onto shelves. My weetbix box was very wet and had to be thrown away? How can adjust this. I have had the fridge about a month....


are you putting warm food into the unit?.even uncovered food will not help.or have you checked door seals are touching all round.cant see a blocked drain so soon, but check anyway.i take it this is a stand alone fridge??? also make sure the door is closed when not in use.(sounds stupid but you would be suprised how many kids kick door "shut")

Water dripping from underneath


The water is most likely coming from the condensation that's drained out of the refrigerator during the automatic defrost cycle.

Be sure the bottom fan is running and clean out the condensation tray. Warm air pulled across the condenser coils is supposed to evaporate the condensate water. If the fan is not running when the refrigerator cycles on, replace it. This would also result in the refrigerator running excessively without cycling off.

While you're working under the unit, be sure to clean off the coils too.

Good luck. Hope this was helpful.

Fridge constantly dripping wet


water inside, too much condensation from humid air entering fridge from bad seals. replace the seals. could also be that the condensate drain is clogged. if it's leaking from the bottom of the fridge, make sure the tubing is still inside the condensate pan underneath the fridge.

Water is forming at the front of our fridge by the door.


Sounds like your drain outlet in the fridge is blocked. Empty the fridge compartment and remove any obstructions from the drain hole at the back. Another way is to pull out the fridge and look for the hose that drips into a tray, lift it out and either clean it and blow back up it, or use some form of compressed air. cover the hole inside with a wet cloth first to catch obstruction ( usually food particles).

Ice & water dripping in refrigerator


hi , roger here i am a maintenance tech for an apartment complex that just happens to have whirlpool appliances. the way i see it is the most likely problem you have is a clogged drain. if you push the refrigerator out where you can access the back of it you will see a plastic hose that runs from about the middle of the fridge down to the bottom and then dumps into a pan that sits on the top of the compresser. the easiest thing to do is to remove the hose from the pan and blow hard through it or hook an air nozzle from a compresser and blow through it . it should take care of it. also try to avoid turning the fridge up on its max settings. hope this helps.
