I was just given this HotPoint side by side and the freezer side was a big block of ice. I had to use a hair dryer to defrost and clean before use. It was frozen all the way up along the panel I watched you remove in another video to change a thermostat. My question is, should I look for anything that might need to be changed or just let it run a while and see what happens.

J Frey for Model Number Hot Point Side By Side

ANSWER Hello J. Frey. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
