My hotpoint is three years old. i've already had a repairman 1 1/2 years ago. The temperature is warming up and everything is thawed out. It makes a loud noise like a clock ticking. Is it anything I can fix or is this another call to the repairman for what seems like a temporary fix ?

Re: both sides are warm
Can yiou tell me what the repairman did? the ticking is the air damper but the cooling is a separate issue. call a different repairman to have them take a look at the compressor, heat exchanger or evaporator as these could all the be source of the problem.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It happens alot in my 18+ years i have seen them leak 1 day later to 30 or 40 years later.If it was running and not stoping and freezer and fridge warm or hot it may be a leak if it runs alot and freezer is cold and fridge warm then it is not a freon leak.
You need to warm up the garage for it to work right. The cold control reads the refrigerator temperature and if it's already cold, will not turn on the compressor. Hence the freezer warms up to the ambient temperature.
Just had this problem a few weeks ago. tube from freezer was frozen solid 1-2 feet down from the freezer. Empty EVERYTHING out of the the Fridge and the freezer into coolers or other suitable 2-4hr container(s). Unplug the unit and use a hair blow dryer on the coolest warm setting. If it's too hot it may melt plastic or styrofoam parts. As long as long as you have everything out and it's going to be at room temperature for a while, why not clean it totally out with fantastic or your favorite cleaner. Once your sure the clog is gone from the tube, put it all back together, plug it in and stop being a slob and keep it clean!!!! hehehehehehe
If the freezer is packed to the top and the air ducts are blocked it
can not share the cold air with the refrigerator and it gets warm. If
this is the problem, then the next day it should get cool again! let me
know. If you decide you need service!

if this is a side by side refrigerator, then the space between the doors is not heated by an electric heater. it is heated by part of the condensing coil. so the excess heat is probably generated by a loss of adequate airflow under the machine. which would explain the temperature change in the refrigerator.
clean the coils under the machine and make sure the fan is working.
make sure the airflow is not obstructed in any way.
if you already checked this and think
it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out. Mike
