Hi checking basics need confirmation ( need guidance )
by evaporator one square block 2 yellow / 2 black wires clips on evaporator
is this a thermal cutout and how to test ?
heater element test ? one wire to element other wire clips on evaporator
and at a guess would say fuse ?
fridge will work for about 12 hours ( gets cold ) then alarm goes off .
suction pipe frosts up at times , condenser gets hot at top warm around center and cool at bottom . ( compressor gets hot at times also odd hot patch around door pipe. )
wire at top of door by hinge checked and fine .
any help appreciated

Hi
The compressor getting hot, and the condenser temperatures sound OK , and the hot spots near the door is just to prevent frost around the door . These FF's seem to have a very bad reputation for reliability or lack of it, especially this wire from the door hinge. Never worked on one of these units so it may be worth speaking to Hotpoint direct as this block could be a sensor and defrost heater circuit.
