Trying To Fix A 13 Year Old Hot Point Fridge.


My fridge died last night. Eventually I ended up bypassing the defrost cycle and the cold control to test the compressor. It works fine hooked to a 3 in 1 start switch pack. I have it kludge together and it is working fine, but with no controls.

My first question is where is the condenser coil? Is it the round cage on the right? I can"t find anything like it on the net.



Next is where do I look for the defrost timer?

Oh, ignore the fugly floor. We haven't gotten that far yet.

Condensor is bottom right, Frigidaire always used the round coil at the back.

Defrost timer on new fridges is a control board inside behind a plastic cover. Some were inside secured with a screw. Some are in the back near the compressor and relay.

I just found the circuit board. That sucked is 150 bucks. Do you know if the timer is a separate solenoid.
