This answer was rated:

I have a Hotpoint fridge type R600a model RL175G. The fridge will not set itself to the temperature that is set by the turn knob on the top face of the fridge. The fridge frosts up at the back wall and 30 to 50 mm in thickness. Please can you help. I think the fridge still goes when the temperature knob is set to off.
Best Regards.

Hello Brian, my name is George,

Can you tell me if the compressor at the rear of the appliance is hot?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi George the compressor at the back is very hot. You could not touch it.

It is short of refrigerant Brian.. Turn it off and allow it to cool, then call a refrigeration engineer to re-gas it...
