Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
It seems to me that there is a leak of gas from your unit.This is if you have 1 compressor/motor)If there is two compressors on unit then it can be thermostat for fridge.Anyhow check if motor is running all the time and is wery hot, if it is there is to little gas in system .This should be covered by guarantee.Jan

Milk can sometimes curdle in a working fridge. But it does sound like your defrost system may be malfunctioning. Can you empty your freezer and inspect the defrost system behind the air circulator fan?
I know that defrost elements sometimes go bad and the controllers can pop too. You should check your operators manual and see how to put the fridge into manual defrost. *(it usually involves turning the fridge light on and off by hand. See if the freezer drains during manual defrost. If you have lots of food that dries out in a frost free unit the moisture contains a lot of contaminants that can plug the defrost drain. Which leads to a blocked air passage between the freezer and fridge sides.
You might want to get a small backup fridge for a while to run this down.
Or just use up the food in your fridge before running the tests.
Good luck and be careful.

SOURCE: have a hotpoint FFA97 fridge
Hi ive had the same problem and solved it thank god !!! it happend to me about three times tll i sussed it.well here goes disconect from the mains defrost then you have to empty the freezer and remove the large plastic cooling panel at the back thers about 10 torque screws to undo. then you have to carefully remove the silver foil strip along the back of the cooling finns,the problem is that the ice on the fins builds up over time and collects on the strip and clogs the whole thing up. its been over a year and no problems since then and the fridge is as cold as ever good luck, will.
