Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side No-Frost Refrigerator with Dispenser CSX22GR that seems to have a defrosting problem. I submitted a question and after looking at the freezer the inside coils were frozen . The inside fan was working and so was the bottom fan on the outide. What can I look at to correct the defrosting problem? I don't see how the fan would direct the air across the coils to keep them from freezing? Thank you

In the freezer compartment, there is a heater tube that stops the freezer from freezing up. It is probably blown, and you need a replacement heater tube.

I cant find the filter on my hotpoint no frost refridg.number csx22gr where is it.


your model number doesn't come up.if it's an older machine some didn't come with water filters,you had to add an inline filter on the copper water line,you would run your copper,go down the cellar or behind the machine,cut the copper and the filter connects in between the copper where you cut the line.if you do have a filter it could be in the fridge section top right side or down in the bottom kickplate.i found your model the a was missing after the b baww.it doesn't show a filter,this is an older unit,check behind or in basement,wherever the water line goes and see if there's a filter added into it,if not you can cut the copper and add a filter yourself.home depot sells them

Refrigerator freezer not cold


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Is there anything else that makes you think this is a problem.

It just quit after a couple of months of very little use.


Most likely you have a defrost problem. When you unplug it for a couple of days, it thaws out and you plug it back in and it works until it freezes up again. Possible problem ...1 of 3...defrost timer...2 of 3...defrost heater...3 of 3...defrost bi-metal.

Refrigerator warm, frost in freezer


take back panel off freezer and check for ice build up which will block air flow and temps will rise. melt off carefully with a hairdryer.make sure drain is also clear and use hot water and patience if blocked with ice. if fault re-occurs, you have a fault with defrost system
