Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
Hi! I have a Hotpoint 14.2 frig that's about 10 yrs old that cools down but not automatically. I don't see an exact model number, but I can describe the problem. It made an electrical short sound and now the automatic cooling doesn't work. If we turn the dial down to zero and back up again it turns on and cool to the desired amount. But it won't turn on again automatically. Maybe thermostat?

on most refrigeration, the refrigerant goes to the freezer first and the tail end to the fridge. it is probable that the compressor is failing. compressors are quite hotg when running but not too hot to touch. if the compressor is too hot that also indicates failure. doubt it is worth repair

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

you might have a few problems,, make sure to check the condensor is clean, also make sure the condensor fan motor is going... you might have a bad Condensor fan motor, and Ref Control or a Freon Leak @ the Evaporator... I would call a tech to check it out...
