Where is the reset on my refidgerator wont get cold enough kid left it open


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

Hotpoint CTF15ELD top freezer refrigerator - freezer O.K. refrig too warm


It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.

Having a water dripping from top of fridge!! p


Having a water dripping from top of fridge!!

The problem could be a number of things but you have to know the top of the fridge is the bottom of the freezer (usually) and this surface must be colder than the air that's being circulated in the refg compartment. Obviously Side by Side or bottom freezer would be differant.

4 items to check :

1your air damper switch is set to give you a colder freezer and not allowing enough cooling and dehumidification in the fridge compartment (explanation below of the reason you have to have air flow unobstructed)

2 the defrost on the freezer is not taking place (Explained below)

3 the door seals are not sealing. Use a piece of paper like a $1.00 and slide between the door gasket and the frame if you can pull and push it and it not fold up the seal is open and not working.

4 some fridges have a energy saver switch which is a heater. This switch turns the heater off. It is not needed in everyone's home or locality so the switch may be set to "save energy" and thus not keeping the "dew" off the fridge (usually these heaters are only on the doors and possible on the outer sides of the fridge and not the ceiling, so I doubt this is it, but I do like to eliminate this).


One of the more common things is the defrost not taking place and this can be a verity of thing Ive seen drain lines stop up and refreeze eventually to the point where the upper part of the fridge is too cold not to drip when the humidity come up like in the spring time. A faulty defrost timer / initiator or a bad element or safety switch, bad wire can also cause non defrost.
Defrost is required because the freezer is where the coldest part of the refrigeration circuit is and it requires air from the fridge to move over the coil. When this movement stops a cold ceiling can result. It will eventually follow with warmer fridge temps as humidity and time progresses.

Hope this helps with the mystery of most common problems associated with:
having a water dripping from top of fridge!!
Please grade ma accordingly and GOOD luck!.

STANDING WATER ON TOP SHELF


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
