Question about Refrigerators
Only going to 16 degrees
Remove inner wall in freezer to see if ice has built up on the coils. If the defrost heater has failed result will be ice build-up on the freezer coils and lack of air flow in refrigerator so no cooling.

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...

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer Freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.

SOURCE: I have a Hotpoint Mistral
It is possibly the fan hitting any overformed ice.
defrosting by shutting it off overnight would be the best to do first.
Or at least shut it off for a few hours.

Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.
