Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Water/ice maker runs on it's own

Water is forcefully pouring out of despenser when switched to water. We switched it to "ice" and motor will kick on and shoot ice every so often. The tab is not being pushed in during these running cycles. Recently changed the filter and refered to trouble shooting in the manual. It said to drain the water out for 3 mintues ( aprox. 1.5 gallons ) this didn't work. Any suggestions....

The drain the water thing is to get the air out the lines and filter so a burst of air doesn't splash water all over you. Water shooting out sounds like the circuit board is bad since you are not pushing the tabs, etc. I doubt that BOTH switches under the tabs are stuck in the "on" positon but you can always double check that too.

Why does my ge pss26lg side by side despense water but no ice?


Just because you get water from the dispenser does not mean you should also get ice made in the ice maker. Fact is there are two side to the water control valve. One for the ice maker and the other for the water dispenser. Is there ice remaining inside the ice maker slots? If not then pour water into the tray until full and if after the water freezes it drops the ice into the ice bin this will indicate a defective=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve If nothing happens and the ice maker tray are full of ice this will indicate a defective=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly The ice maker is cannot be rebuilt on this model. I am here if you have questions, Thank You, John T Appliance 911

My icemaker just stopped making ice today....please help


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

Whirlpool mod.ed25pqxfw1 will not despense ice. motor will not run. is there a test procedure?


I found a parts manual through Whirlpool and it says your ice maker is mechanical type. Fill with tap water and let freeze and if ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill the the water control valve part number 2182106 but that number has now changed to 2188542. Try this test first and I will send the parts manual and user manual. The test will point to what is happening like water control valve or the fill thermostat inside the ice maker, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water just keeps pouring out of the top of the ice despenser


I would say your water valve in the freezer is locked in the open postion or has broken.

No Ice is being made. Water is being despensed at the door but it seems that no water is going to the ice maker. Have good water flow to the pump.


Is the ice maker turned on?  The on/off switch is located on the top right side of the freezer compartment.  The manual says that there is a sensor beam that passes from one freezer wall to the other to shut off ice making when the bin is full.  Check to make sure nothing Is blocking that signal beam and that the bin is correctly installed.

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

WATER RUNS OUT OF THE WATER DISPENSER ON THE DOOR OF THE SIDE BY SIDE


THe problem may be in the water valve for the water despenser,

you could try disconnecting the 2 wires on top of the water despenser side of the valve and see if that will stop it. IF not the valve may need replaceing, may be leaking thu water vavle when closed
