SOURCE: Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working

are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe

SOURCE: Whirl pool gold GD5RHA side by side.

We had the same problem and I AM NOT a repairman. I found that with a lot of freezer door opening, the rubber fill tube, which fills the ice maker tray, had frozen up inside the tube. I had already replaced the ice maker, and still no ice. I am sure a repair person will shudder, but I simple put a Phillips screwdriver up the tube and found the ice was not allowing the tube to refill the tray. CAREFULLY, use the tip of the screwdriver to dislodge the ice and clear the tube. These units do not cool or freeze quickly, therefore keep the doors closed as much as possible and don't let kids stand with the door open while they gaze into the depths while making their decision.

SOURCE: icemaker makes too few cubes

Find the water source for the ice maker(most are under the kitchen sink and are tapped off of the cold water line to the faucets) You need to either shut off the tap by turning it clockwise until it is closed. Then you need to disconnect the vinyl tubing from the valve. get a bucket and place it where it will catch the water from the tap. Gradually open the tap by turning it counterclockwise until water starts to come out of the valve. If you have a large enough bucket open the valve all of the way. If the stream of water does not change then the valve is bad and needs replacing. If the stream is nice and strong then the valve is ok. Turn the valve clockwise to close it, reattach the vinyl tubing and open the vale all of the way. This should improve the quanity of ice cubes. If not then there is a cripmp in the vinyl line between the tap and the solinoid valve on the back of the refrigerator.

restricted water flow or pressure from house water where your taped into. your shut off or Tap a line may be cloged or if you have a water filter its cloged. It could also be a bad water valve in rear of refrig. start at the sourse of water and work back to frig. A rare thing could be that the timing gear on the ice maker is burnt and not trigering valve long enough to fill icemaker

SOURCE: Icemaker makes ice, but will not dispense ice via door.

The auger arm in the back of the freezer should be rotating to test this hold the door switch in and push the dispise button down. If it does not even try it could be the control switch on the door. the auger motor is a 120v motor and relatively strong. You can test to see if you can manually turn the arm it should trurn stiffly. Its alsoi a chance you don't have the been in place correctly.

Sounds like you have a problem with water valve/triple solenoid assembly. It controls the flow of water to the door and ice maker. I believe it comes as a complete unit.

Water will not flow into ice maker


This could be 2 reasons for this The water control valve on back for the ice maker is defective or the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. You can pore water into an empty ice maker and let it freeze. If it cycles and does not refill with water I would say that the water control valve is defective. Your refrigerator has 2 dual water control valves one is for the water filter assembly the one on the back is part number 61005626
Let me know what you find, Thanks sea Breeze click link below and enter model or part number in search feature.

Defrost Problem


there is a drain in the middle of the defrost water collector and it is probably blocked - usually with ice. dry ot the tray and put very hot water in to melt the ice. you may have to do several times. do this until water flows away freely
