I have an Gallery series Fridgidaire side by side fridge, model number GLHS68EJSB0... the line to the water filter keeps freezing and unable to depense water... we have the setting on the fridge set to the...


We have the exact same problem. But ours is in a vacation home so we have to keep the water turned off all the time. It seems something in the ice line freezes when the fridge is empty. Then, no ice, no water. When we turn the water back on, after a few days of having food in the fridge, it seems to make everything melt and flood the tray then leak out onto the floor all day and night. The fridge temp goes down to 12 degrees when the fridge side is empty. It seems to stabilize when there are items inside. We put several gallons of water inside instead of leaving it empty and it helps with the temp but not with the leaking. We have had service come out several times and they just said, "don't leave it empty and turn off the water when you leave." What good is that? I don't have water or ice for the weekend when I go up to the house! OR I clean up floods the entire time!! Now it's out of warranty. Now that I see it happens to people in their main house, I would just say NEVER EVER EVER BUY FRIGIDAIRE AGAIN!

What is the best temperature to keep the refrigerator ( Hotpoint)


http://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/hs/pages/content.do?keys=FAQ:SIY_RFFRIDGETEMP
What should a Hotpoint fridge temperature be?

Your Hotpoint fridge is designed to operate at a temperature ranging from 0.5 degrees in the coldest part up to 5 degrees inthe warmest part.

As warm air rises and cold air falls it is safe to say that the best way to store your food is to place it in the most appropriate shelf compartment, as shown in the diagram below.

  • Zone A - Cool Dairy Products, Cheese, Butter, Margarine, Low Fat Spreads, Cooking Fats/Lards, Preserves, Jams, Curs, Marmalade, Salad Dressing or Sauces
  • Zone B - Colder General Food Storage
  • Zone C - Coldest Meat, fish & poultry, Pre-cooked/chilled food
  • Zone D - Salad Bin, Vegetables, Fruit and Salad Items

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Refrigerator side is not cooling enough. Temperature is only in low 50's. Freezer side seems to be okay.


First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try completely defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing.

Fridge wires cut


The answer could well be Yes. Ideally you should reoplace the harness anyway. The fridge controls and air valve shutter (see below) will also be wired via the harness.

My Samsun RS2534ww side by side refridgerator will not maintain temperature on the fridge side. It consistantly warms up to between 50 and 60 degrees despite resetting the thermostat.

My refrigerator freezes my food solid


There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.

Freezer side wont freeze

If the Freezer and the Fridge are not cooling enough then check that the condenser is not iced up and that the fan is running correctly. These are located behind a panel in the lower half of the freezer at the rear and can be accessed from inside the freezer compartment.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting from the condenser has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up.
