Fridge not cooling. Coil is froze up inside the freezer. Any ideas
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 check the defrost thermistor to make sure that it is not bad. If the resistance shows normal based on information on wiring diagram then you would need to replace the control board. 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
I have a Hotpoint Fridge the fan is working on the compressor but the compressor won't come on?
Answer Hello Eric,
You will want to unplug unit and pull the relay off the compressor. Shake relay and see if it rattles and if it does then it needs to be replaced. If it does not then do an amp draw and if you are getting more than 9 amps to the compressor then you will need to replace compressor.
