The first thing to do is a complete defrost. This requires emptying the freezer, fridge, doors open, plug out. The freezer should drain to a tray in the dusty area under the fridge. Vacuum the coils while you're there.. If it doesn't drain to there, you have a stuck drain. If it's just ice, it'll melt sooner or later. It could be a pea or something stuck in there. You have to remove the freezer inside cover to find out, a lot of trouble. If you do, check the defrost coil, they break easy. Sometimes the defrost timer breaks. If you can find it, it should turn the compressor off and the defrost coil on once a day. The fan and lite will still work.

If the freezer is freezing everything, check the coils. A refrigerant leak will cause ice to build up on the coils, not extra ice in the fridge. ... A leak in the compressor or coil will chill the air around the leak as long as it is outside, but a leak into the fridge could cause it to get extra cold.31 Aug 2015

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.
