if the door seals are both ok, check and see if she has any open containers in the fridge juice ect that may be allowing moisture to escape. a model number and serial nuber off the sticker in the fridge would help me with more ideas.

This happens when the racks get too close to the evaporator. Or bottles. You can try to use hot water but usually you will need to buy new racks for the unit.

In the freezer compartment, there is frost in the back. It's a side by side 19.9 without a water dispenser. The refrigerator part is not as cold as it should be but it is cold.

although most frost free freezers will hardly ever frost up,some will,(it depends on overall humidity)by frost free the makers say "food is frost free"but the inside is shinny plastic and all shinny surfaces will collect condensation and frost up.(look under the salad crisper,condensation?)it is worthwhile, about once a year,doing a complete defrost(NO sharp objects)and vacuum out all the vents/clean out any drain holes.
saves you a fortune in power.......

I have a Hotpoint CSX22D side-by-side no frost refrigerator. The refrigerator side is starting to freeze some fruits and vegetables. Any ideas as to why? I don't know how old the unit is - it was in the...


Try lowering the temp. setting for the fridge one click at the time. (wait 24 hrs. between adjustments).

If unit is cooling fine, there is no need to spend money on check up. You can clean the compressor compartment with your vacuum cleaner. Just unplug unit before you do it. There is also a little fan that needs to get cleaned with a degreaser moist rag,

Hotpoint csx22d side by side has leak under freezer side @ door...coming from wiring harness that runs up into bottom of freezer maybe??????

This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .

My frige stays warm all the time it is a Hotpoint

evaporator coils are iced up on the freezer side. either take everything out of the fridge and unplug it and let it sit for a day to defrost, or remove the inside rear panel where there is frost and (with the fridge off) use warm water sprayed on the ice to defrost it (or use a hair dryer, but just until the ice is melted. do not overheat the metal). soak up the excess water (underneath the fridge, too), and turn it on empty. let it run empty for a day to get it cold, then put the stuff back in. if the stuff is in there when it's warm, the humidity will ice up the coils again.

How great is the freezer temperature? Look for frost on the freezer back wall. If there is frost there you have a defrost system problem.
the refrigerator is cooled by air it receives from the freezer. When the freezer coil freezes up the air circulation stops.
