Hotpoint hss25Gfpd ww, wtf?

I have been having a time with my hotpoint fridge. During an ice storm our power got knocked out for 12 hours, plus. When the power came back on, we had ice but no water. Talked to someone about it, they said to replace the filter (it was time anyhow), and the problem would be fixed. Well, it isn't. I figure there is some type of sediment blocking the hoses, or there is some trigger that needs to be reset. Any ideas here? Thanks guys-G HAmbone

I had the same problem. The hose connecting the water supply to the door was frozen. Just completely thaw out the freezer (which may be easier said than doen if it is full of frozen food!) and that should fix the problem.

Westinghouse ice maker quit working

Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

My hotpoint fridge dispenses ice, but not water. The filter has been changed. Model #HSS25GFPE WW

Set up a shop light, one of those Halogen type lights. And have it shining right on it at the highest setting. The water in the line has frozen. After about 30 minutes to an hour it should start working again. You could also use a blow dryer but I'd rather not stand in front of the fridge that long. Remember if you got kids in the house to warn them not to touch the light!

Very common. Most likely you need a main control board, located in the back of the fridge.

We have a Hotpoint side by side fridge. It always makes

check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser

Freezer side of refridgerator doesn't freeze foods properly and also makes only about 10 cubes a day. food side works fine, it's a Hotpoint model #HSS251FMB WW

If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

I have a Hotpoint hss25gfpe ww fridge with ice and water in the door. The ice works, but I am unable to get water. Why can I not get any water? The serial # is tf261776 if this is needed.

Most water dispensing fridges have a tank in the fridge to keep the water cold. If the fridge temp is too low it might freeze the tank and stop the water from dispensing. Also check the water filter to make sure it is not frozen. Water filters should be replaced every 6-12 months, if it's been longer than that it might be too full of dirt to allow water past. It also might be the water inlet valve is not opening.
