Default Hotpoint Refer Not Running
Brand: Hotpoint   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a basic Hotpoint refer. No icemaker or any bells and whistles. It had been sitting for 2 or 3 months so I decided to plug it in, it turned on and was running for a minute or two and I saw that the temp control was set at 1 so I turned it up so that it would cool down. I turned it up to 7 or 8 and it immediately shut down. I unplugged it, let it set for awhile and when I turned it back on...nothing. I check the power in, and ran power to the fan directly and it ran. There is power up to the thermostat but it dosen't seem to come back to the fan. I tried bypassing the thermostat by sending power back down to the unit but it still dosen't run. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

I reset it and it works just fine. Can't thank you enough...didn't want to have to buy one and you got it first try.

If you had to manually advance the defrost timer and it was in the defrost cycle longer then a half hour I would replace the defrost timer.

The Model # is 203c2452p033 the defrost control is wr09x0502. I didn't see any type of reset on it so it cycled it manually until it clicked and it worked. So it could be going into defrost and staying there once it starts?

Yes, it could be going into defrost and sticking in the defrost part of the cycle.

The defrost timer should advance out of the defrost cycle on it's own no more then a half after it starts the defrost cycle. Often times the defrost cycle is only around 20 minutes.

Thanks... I'll keep watching it and if it stays in defrost I'll replace that part. Very, very helpful, thanks again.
