Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: I have a hotpoint fridge
I have tried the above solution without success. The only solution to the problem that works is to empty the fridge/freezer switch it off and allow it to do a full defrost. Then switch it on again. This appears to have sorted the problem

E8- Evaporator thermistor short circuit
Well this is a sensor,, found in the freezer compartment of the f/f
what you have to do is reove the draws fro mthe freezer and you will c a panel which has 6 screws., remove the panel and and you will c a fan, toward the right of the fan you will c a yellow plug with a bit of wire on it,
This is what you have to replace
try connect distributions you can find them on the net if your in the uk that is
hope this helps

Power off the freezer.
Remove all freezer drawers.
Remove the four screws retaining the ducting at the back of the freezer compartment. Top at the top, two at the bottom
Carefully pull the ducting out - it's located in the guide slots for the freezer drawers, and should pull out without too much drama.
This exposes the air circulating fan, and the evaporator coil (the bit that gets chilled).
In my case, despite a defrost of the frost-free section, the evaporator section was one massive chunk of ice. If you have similar, carefully defrost this, and check the drain hole at the bottom of the cavity.
Re-assemble, as reverse of above.
Mine's been trouble-free since doing this.
