Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
I have a hotpoint csx25gr. The hot side is not cooling. The freezer side had some ice to the back but its defrosted everything now. It was keeping a little cool but the freezer side is hot now. It just started to make a whinning noise. Could this be the defrost timer or something simple? Do you know a replacement part #?
Your whining noise could be many things...

bulmer...it takes about two days to fully defrost these units unless you take the freezer section cover off and use a heat source. If you do...be sure to protect yourself against water and electricity mixing....not healthy. See below for another note.
clean the condenser coils below the unit.
check for the amount of gas in the unit. It must be off for half an hour. Remove the back fiber panel. The big thing is the compressor. Clean off the largest pipe coming out of it. Plug the unit in...watch out for the fan! The pipe should frost up and then clear off or stay wet after about 5 minutes. It should not be frosty. If it is, you need refrigerant.
Note: If you do remove the inside freezer panel and defrost, you can see how much refrigerant you have in your unit. Start the unit. Wait 5 minutes and observe the coils. They should be evenly frosted end to end. If approximately so, you're good. If not, you're low on gas.

SOURCE: Amana side by side not cooling
The freezer fan has to work in order to move the air inside the cabinet. Now take out the back panel, molding and look at the small fan unplug the frig and remove the fan. Save the fan blades they just press on so will take a little effort to remove the blades. Take the motor to parts house in your area and replace it. Let me know how things turn out. ken

I am looking up your model now, it is for sure in the defrost circuit that is causing this. Yes, from what I can find your model has a defrost timer. But have not located where it is, most times 2 places, behind kick plate near floor or inside fresh food cabinet inside the panel where the temperature control is located. When you locate it slowly turn clockwise until refrigerator stops running. At this point it should be in defrost. If timer does not work it will need replaced. I'm still doing some searches on your model so please understand this is not a solid yes, that this is your problem, but we will find it. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Heater coil can be checked with a continuity meter, just be sure to unplug the unit first. Before you do anything, locate the defrost timer which is under the control panel in the fridge at the top in the back. There is a little white plastic plug cover a small hole, remove that and you will see the manual advance device. You can only turn it one way due to its design, so using a flat bladed screwdriver that fits the device turn it slowly until you hear a click. then listen in the freezer for sizzling noises as the heater warms up. If you hear the noise you will need to replace the defrost timer, part is available on line. If it doesn't activate the timer then check the continuity on the heater element and the defrost thermostat. (You will have to cut the wires on the thermostat to accomplish this) and check it for continuity. The thermostat needs to be frozen to read properly otherwise it will appear to be open so leave it in a freezer for a bit then check it out. all the parts are available online, just google for refrigerator parts and look for your model.
