Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Hi, I have a Hotpoint refrigerator model #CTX21. This refrigerator has hardly me any problems until now. The refrigerator does not seem to keep the foods cold. I'm notice foods seem to be spoiling quicker than normal. The freezer is doing fine


Answers :

The most posible fault is a dirty condenser.
\015\012The condenser in your model is located behind the base grille on the bottom of the fridge. Remove the base grille by grasping it at the bottom andpulling it out. Now either sweep away or vacuum dust that is readily accesible.
\015\012This easy cleaning should be done at least once a year for most efficient operation.
\015\012Their is also a smaler posibility that the automatic defrost system which can be either the defrost thermostat or the defrost heater.
\015\012So if the condenser cleaning will not make a change after a couple of days then switch of the refigerator for tow hours and try to keep door closed so good not spoiled. then switch it on again and notice if you have desired temperature. You should find a thermometer so this will help you realise the deference in temperature more acurate.
\015\012Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.
