Hotpoint CSX22GRBGAA side by side frig
Posted 11 June 2005 - 03:42 AM
By the way, just had kitchen cabinets built in April and there's minimal space on sides of frig. Top has inch clearance. Will lack of air circulation cause this problem?
I await all or any guidance.

Your machine did not auto defrost. This plugged the airways and caused your unit to run warm.
I believe our host has links explaining this repair/diagnosis.
Your defrost timer, or heater, or defrost termination thermostat has likely failed.
When you get the ice out, your machine will work ok, for a few days, so you need to find the cause.

I played around with the defrost timer and nothing happened. Not sure if the ice prevents anything from happening during the screwdriver test even if the timer is defective.
If the heater should have started, then next is Thermo or the heater after the ice is gone.

I turned the defrost timer on with a screwdriver and the defrost heater kicked on. That should mean that I need to replace the timer. Any idea why the edge of the interior wall got hot and is this a more serious problem??

Looks like a timer will fix you up.
