The freezer works fine; the refrigerator isn't cold.


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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Hello, My fridge side of my hotpoint model # Hsm25gftc sided by side fridge/freezer isn't getting cold anymore. I purchased it in 2007 I believe. I've tore the ice maker and tray out and pulled...


if the freezer is working fine it sounds like you could have a bad damper control,also there's another thing i want you to check first,hotpoint is a g.e. product,they have sensors in the machines,you said you had the back wall off,take it off again and on top of the evap coil you'll see a sensor,it looks like a white bullet with two whits wires going to it,look at it and if where the wires connect to it it has a black ring around it you have to change it out,also ther's one of these sensors in the fidge section too,it senses how cold the fridge is and tells the damper door to open and close,it sounds like your damper is staying shut,the part number for the temp. sensors are WR55X10025 and it's like 8 dollars,if they have the black ring on them they most likely are your problem,the new sensors are all white,if you have the white sensors then you could have a bad damper.go to this site,it's sears site http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Hotpoint-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-HSM25GFTCSA/1811/0165000/H0712760/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= go to the fresh food diagram and look at the damper and the sensor,one of these parts are badmalso g.e. has had alot of problems with the mother boards,the computer board in the back of the fridge,if the condenser fan and evap fans are running fine and the freezer is fine then i would replace the damper and the sensor but change out the sensor first because it's 8 bucks,if that doesn't do it then buy the damper,all it does is the fan blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge section,if the damper isn't opening the air can't enter into the fridge section.hope this helps and points you in the right derection,let me know how you make out,good luck salde

Fridge is warm, was collecting water inside. Freezer is working fine. Increased temp but not responding. It is a bottom freezer model


send the model number off of the fridge,if the freezer is working fine then no air is being blown up to the fridge section,all it does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge section so either the door was left open and this is very common with a bottom mount freezer or the evap fan isn't blowing or on some models there's a damper inside the fridge section,the damper door opens and closes to let cold air in,when it reaches temp. the door closes,sometimes the door gets stuck in the closed position or the open position and the fridge freezes or gets warm depending on where the door is.first thing open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap. fan motor,next look at the ceiling and on the packages,do you see frozen water droplets,if so the door was left open and the air ducts are froze up from the warm air getting in from the door being open and mixing with the cold air freezes up the air ducts,also stick your hand onto the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's like snow or frost on the inside back wall of the freezer you could have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the model or last a bad damper,when you open the fridge door there are air ducts usually up top and in the middle you should feel cold air blowing in,this is your problem the air isn't making it into the fridge section.if the door was left open,unplug the fridge,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer heat up the back inside wall of the freezer and blow the hot air into the air vent holes in the back wall to melt out the air ducts,keep heating it up until you don't see any more water dripping,you can see the water dripping through the vent holes.so let me know what you find,send the model number and we can go from there.look up near the ceiling in the fridge section on the right hand wall and you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers,send the full model number so i can see what you have in your machine.
