Hotpoint Future fridge freezer - freezer working well but top of the back of the fridge has a large build up of ice ??? And doesn't appear to be keeping the food cold enough


here are lots of things that can cause cooling problems. One of the most common causes of poor cooling in a frost free refrigerator is a defrost system failure. In such a case one or the other compartment may appear to be keeping proper temperature but that too may change in a short period of time. The fridge compartment's temperature rise is usually (but not always) the first to be noticed. Frost" and "Ice"
There is a difference between "frost" (a white, snow-like substance) and "ice" (usually clear and solid). When referring to what is seen during an inspection, please keep this distinction in mind as the possible causes for each are often very different. The Defrost System
Inspecting the (usually rear) wall of the freezer compartment for a frost build up is necessary. (In the case of many GE top freezer models, check the freezer's bottom panel.) If there is a frost coating on it, it is often a sign of excessive frosting beneath it. Sometimes however the evaporator cover panel will actually need to be removed (see the illustration below) before an excessive frost build will visible.
The refrigeration system's evaporator (cooling) coil is usually in the freezer compartment. This evaporator will periodically frost over and have to be defrosted by means of a heating system. When the defrost heating system fails, the frost can accumulate to such a degree that airflow throughout the appliance is hampered. There may be just enough air circulation to cool the freezer section but that will eventually stop too.

Freezer has massive ice build up, refrigerator not cooling , no cold air thru chute


Possible that the auto defrost timer is not working and so the massive frost build up. This prevents the air to flow from vent to the fridge.
The auto frost must work on a determined setting of the timer cycle as the frost must clear so that the whole fridge is efficient.
So check the timerr which is normally placed in the rear bottom and is connected to the heater and is also inline with the thermostat.

Runs constantly, freezer isn't cold enough, bottom of fridge is freezing


Do you have a heavy frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section toward the bottom. If you do your defrost heater has gone bad and will need to be changed. If you do not have frost build up the other problem would be with the evaporator fan or the main board. Let's hope for heavy frost build up.

Fridge/freezer cooling inefficiently


Either the repair guy did not wire up the heater correctly or he replaced the wrong part, if the heater was good it was likley to be the defrost thermostat...I would call the repair guy back to check.

I have a CSX22GRB Hotpoint fridge and 1)the ice maker is not making ice 2)there is ice building up in the back of the freezer 3) the main fridge is not cooling


Hi, Id there ice or a frosty build up on the rear wall?
If it is ice, the drain is plugged. If it is frost, there is a self defrosting problem.
Please let me know so that I can assist you further.

Refrigerator not cooling


Check in the freezer section by removing the food exposing the rear inside panel. DO you see frost beginning to build upon the rear inside panel of your freezer section? If so, the is a simple defrost problem and can be repaired easily. For testing purpose, st both control to the middle setting and do not move them during the entire testing period. Moving the controls only makes things worse.... Let me know what you find....

Fridge problem


you have a defrostion issue reed to remove the back panel in the freezer behind this panel is the evaperator coil needs to be melted down because it is full of ice and frost, ahair drier will work well,put several towells down under the bottom of the evaperator to catch water runoff, after defrosting the coil inspect the defrost heater or heaters some of these can have one or two heaters the heaters are located behind metal gaurds in the evaperator if either of the heaters are bad (both)need to be replaced, if they show good then bad defrost timer or bad defrost termination thermastat wiring diagram behind frount bottom grill

Freezer compartment


You need to defrost the whole fridge and at the back in the freezer compartment you will c a small drainage hole.. look for it.. The get a piece of say hanger wire and clean this pour some hot water from a kettle down it and then start your fridge up again. that should sort your problem out ... if not then its either a sensor or a board fault...
