It does sound like you have a low refrigerant gas problem - only way to be sure is get a service guy to check. If you notice particularly cold parts on the wall of the fridge or freezer, rather than the more even cooling that would be normal, then this is almost certainly the problem, and should be easily enough fixed by a qualified technician. The other possibilities are: The thermostat in the freezer could be faulty -hard to test without the right gear, but just check that the temperature adjustment knob for the freezer if it has a rotary one hasn't slipped on its shaft - this would give you a different temperature than the setting you have set. Check the freezer door seal/hinge and make sure it is sealing properly all around especially at the bottom - only a small gap can make a big difference Check the back of the unit is getting enough ventilation - it should get fairly hot normally but if the ventilation is restricted then the heat has nowhere to go and the freezer wont cool completely - if there is a lot of dust on the back then give it a gentle brush - the pipes are quite fragile so be gentle. If you havent defrosted the unit for a while, try that - leave it open and off at least overnight until there is no difference between the temperature inside and outside - sometimes small amounts of moisture in the refrigerant gas can freeze into crystals and block or partially block the gas system, once they defrost they should be dealt with further round the system by the filter/drier and hopefully will no longer be a problem Hope this helps :)

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...

It sounds to me like the internal relief valve is lifting due to discharge pressure being to high such as it a system that is over charged with refrigerant. Have the system tested for pressures on high and low sides. If someone has serviced this unit recently there may be to much of a charge in the system. Also check the name place for the proper refrigerant and charge .

I had the same problem , you have to clean your freezer compartment out completely and take the covers off the inside back of the freezer being carefull not to break any wires, then defrost the cooling module by hand hot water towels messy job.
Make sure the cooling sensor is attached in the right spot and hasn't fallen down, it has a plastic holder it clicks into.
once clean and defrosted put back together and it will be fine...
Try not to put any frozen chip bags or peas etc right at the back of the freezer this causes the cooling system to freeze up.
How the system works it blows cold air from the freezer compartment down to the fridge to cool it and when the system freezes up no cold air to fridge ,hense the problem you are having...
If you are not confident in doing the job you can call a fisher and Paykel tech and they will charge you $150 to do the job.

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The normal setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F., and the normal setting for the fresh food section is +35 to +40 degrees F.
You only have one source of cooling and that is your freezer. With the settings that you have, you are asking your unit to do what it is not designed to do.
The ice maker is struggling because if it is a cast steel ice cube mold, the heater beneath it is not designed for the current to break the ice cubes free @ -18 degrees F., or if you have a plastic flex ice cube mold it is too ridged to flex enough to break the ice cubes free. Normally your ice maker should dump 8-10 times in a 24 hour period.
A note on food storage. Make sure you do not overload your freezer of fresh food section to the point where food product extends beyond the edge of the shelves.
