I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your refrigerator. The cabinet will usually always be warm but can get hot at times (it will be normal). This is because of the Yoder Loop that runs inside the cabinet. This line is an extension of the hot gas (condenser) line in the system. The gas running through this line is very hot. The longer the refrigerator runs and the more heat it has to move, due to the load placed inside of it, the hotter the cabinet will get. If the condenser coils get very dirty or the condenser motor quits or slows down, it will also cause the cabinet to get hot. Another possibility is, if the unit is closed in to tightly around the sides, top and back. Sometimes adjusting the temperature, to a slightly warmer setting, so it doesn't run as long will help. Most of the time, it will start to cool down, when the unit does not have to run as much. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks for the question about your Hotpoint refrigerator making a noise. I will be happy to assist with this problem. There a only a couple thing that can cause the noise you are hearing from the freezer fan. If there is an ice or frost build up around the fan shroud the blade can hit this and make a loud noise similar to your description. Once the ice or frost has been pushed off the shroud the noise will stop. Frost will build up on the shroud very fast if a door is left slightly ajar or your door gaskets are not sealing properly. The other reason the fan will make a loud noise is the bearings in the fan motor have gone bad. You can try lubricating the motor and if the noise stops for a while then you know the bearings are going bad. Replacement of the motor is the solution. I hope this helps you resolve the problem, should you need additional help reply with more details. I will attach links for parts and service for your convenience.

Thanks Ron H.
