Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

3 years ago I bought a Hotpoint side by side (HSS25GFPA-the warranty expired 5 months ago). The fridge has completely stopped cooling. A few months ago the freezer would start to defrost and then refreeze. Any idea where I can start? Circuit Board, evaporation system?

Our freezer quit working tonite..hss251fmdww model # hotpoint side by side


My new years gift was for my Hotpoint HSS25IFMD to stop cooling. Lack of any cooling is typically a bad compressor. This model refrigerator was made in 2002. Seems like the compressors are designed to fail within a year or two after the warranty expires.

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling


Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

Fan cool fridge working 3years bought new 2days ago starts blowin


Good day,
I don't understand your caption..........
Fan cool fridge working 3years bought new 2days ago... However, it sounds as if the compressor is trying to start and cannot.
If the machine is under 5 years of age, the compressor is under factory warranty.
There is a relay, capacitor, and overload which are connected to the side of the compressor after removing the back bottom rear cover.
These items could be removed and taken to an appliance parts house, where they would be glad to test them for you. Replace failed parts.

However, if it is under 5 years of age, I would recommend you call for factory warranty service. They may have to charge you for one of these parts, but since it could be a failed compressor, and not the starting components it is better to let them service it and maintain the balance of your compressor warranty.

Hotpoint HSS25GFPA side by side


If the freezer is packed to the top and the air ducts are blocked it can not share the cold air with the refrigerator and it gets warm. If this is the problem, then the next day it should get cool again! let me know.
