I have a hotpoint HTS22CBMBRWW refrigerator. It was running fine and then starting thawing like the defrost was stuck on. I unplugged it and let it sit for several days, but when I put it back on it cools great for 2 days and then gets warm again. I cannot find and don't know where else to look for the timer for the defrost, but think that might be the problem. I have looked behind the fridge, in the fridge and the freezer but do not know what I am looking for. Can you help?

Would the circuit board connection on front of the door caused this frig to get stuck in the defrost mode? Help would be appreciated.


No, the circuit board mounted inside the ice dispenser on the door has no control over the defrost mode. Furthermore, the problem you appear to be having is not with the defrost system, rather the compressor attempting to start, but failing. This cou ... Maytag Refrigerators

Hi I was trying to defrost the small freezer in my small Beko fridge. Had been defrosting naturally since 10am, now 7pm & it just wouldn't all defrost. So was using a knife to remove last & pierced the tube in the freezer & it started hissing. Now my question is can I still use the fridge. Never used the freezer anyways so it's not much loss there. But will the fridge below still be useable??? Or do we have to get a whole new mini fridge?

I have two whirlpool refrigerators. Both have the same problem. The defrost drain and drain pan under the evaporator coil freeze. Then the defrost cycle causes water to drip down into the frig section. At that point I have to remove the ice maker and evapoator cover to access the frozen drain pan. After getting the ice to thaw all the way down in the drain hole, I get to put it back together and reload the freezer. Do you have any solutions for this evident design flaw.

The cooling unit stops running periodically.....long enough to allow food in the freezer to thaw. The fridge light is on, so electricity is getting to the fridge. The previous tenant had dogs, and when we cleaned under the fridge, alot, and I mean alot of hair was under there. I believe that once it is off for long enough, it may have cooled a component enough to allow it to run for a while. It does end up refreezing the food in the freezer. Thanks
