Besides, why is my Hotpoint fridge freezer not cold?

Hotpoint fridge not cold This could be due to the evaporator foils being covered in frost – resulting in a defrost system error. If the defrost heater assembly is defective, or the defrost thermostat or defrost control have failed the freezer will stay cold but the fridge will become warm.

One may also ask, can the fridge work and not the freezer? Items inside the fridge part needs to be away from the back wall and the filter so air moves. The logic is, yes the fridge part is cold enough, the struggling freezer part can maintain the 38 or so degrees to keep the fridge proper, but without circulation, the freezer can't do what it needs to get down to 0 degrees.

Similarly one may ask, why does my freezer work but the fridge doesn t?

If it doesn't open properly it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. If the evaporator fan is running, the damper door is open and no air is coming out. The evaporator may be frosted up caused by a defrost problem. If the freezer is cold but the refrigerator is warm the thermistor might be defective.
