Denis, frosting back to the compressor is usually a sign of refrigerant overcharge. The fact that you noticed one of the other lines opened could indicate a wrong charge. You will need a cfc certified tech to check this thing out. This way he can check for a proper charge, restriction or a weak pumper...Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Freezer ok fridge warm (15 degrees)

You have a hotpoint mistral f/f i take it in silver..

Check to see if the fan is running at the bottom on the back of the fridge its next to the compressor behind the panel ...
if the compressor is running and the fan is not then your fault is the fan..

IF the fan is running then its the sensors...

These are located in the freezer section, pull out the draws and remove the panel behind it.... six screws.......... you will c threes plugs at the top ledt hand side.. the yellow one is for the fridge the green one for the freezer.... replace both if your freezer is not working...

Also just below the freezer door there is a panel remove the panel and use a vaccumm to clean the fluff that has built up on the coils..

hope this helps if you need anymore help dont hesitate to ask...

by the way the sensors are called evap thermistors...

SOURCE: fridge freezer

there is a fan inside freezer behind back panel. if pipework behind panel is covered with ice, it will prevent air circulation and the fridge is affected first

take back panel off and check for ice build-up and that the fan is working

SOURCE: Fridge not cool enough but frosty at the back

Since you are getting frost in you frost free refrigerator, tell me that the defrost circuit has a problem. It is made of a defrost timer/module, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. What should happen is that the defrost timer should periodically turn off the compressor for about 30 minutes and turn power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The heater is attached to the evaporator coil and melts any frost build up on those coils.

It sounds like the defrost circuit has not been working for a while because the ice build up is not allowing the air to circulate around the coils to cool the refrigerator. The typical failures to the defrost circuit are the defrost timer motor fails to advance, or the defrost heater burns out. Hope this helps you.

there is a chance that the drain hole in the back of the freezer is plugged or block and needs to be clean when the unit is defrosting the water is dripping in the cabinet instead of out the drain.

Hole burning through floor of Freezer


Your refrigerator is likely a frost free model. There is a heating element that runs around the freezer compartment. It is probably the heating element that is causing the original damage to progress.

Most fridges have a way to turn off the frost free part, usually via the timer or or easy as pulling the fuse for the circuit. Pull the fridge out, climb behind it, unplug fridge, and remove access cover, if equipped. Look for a wiring diagram. It will tell you where you need to disable the frost free at.

If you can't disable the frost free, then replace fridge now. the acrid smoke you smell is toxic, and is detrimental to food, as well as to human life. Stop using the fridge, or disable frost free.

Coils inside freezer keep icing up.


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model of fridge)

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.
