Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Cannot detach old water line from indoor water container.

I have a hotpoint side by side hotpoint refridge with a broken water line. I am unable to detach the water line from the indoor water container. It looks to be glued or welded somehow. I am able to buy a water line from GE but there are no instructions. I thought about splicing the water line but there are no splicers made to fit the special made water lines. How do I detach the water line?

Often, the service part does not fit the same way that the factory item does. Examine the new tube and determine the dimension of the interior. Chances are that it will slide over either the stub of the water line or, if you twist off the line, you'll be able to install it in place. In certain cases, the old line is shrink fit over the nub of the container. You'll either have to break it or, better yet, **** it to get it off.

I cant find the filter on my hotpoint no frost refridg.number csx22gr where is it.


your model number doesn't come up.if it's an older machine some didn't come with water filters,you had to add an inline filter on the copper water line,you would run your copper,go down the cellar or behind the machine,cut the copper and the filter connects in between the copper where you cut the line.if you do have a filter it could be in the fridge section top right side or down in the bottom kickplate.i found your model the a was missing after the b baww.it doesn't show a filter,this is an older unit,check behind or in basement,wherever the water line goes and see if there's a filter added into it,if not you can cut the copper and add a filter yourself.home depot sells them

I need to install a new fitting (part # 2196157). That is the fill tube on the ice maker on our whirlpool refrigerator (model number ed2fhgxkt00) The water line is already detached since the threaded part...


Yes that s it. You may have to tug a little to get the old one out as sometimes the foam will try to hold them in a little tight.

One thing to check before you connect your water line. Take a look at the end of the water line for a minute make sure that no water is going to drip out of it. If it does you may as well replace the valve because that is going to plug the tube with ice and possibly damage the ice maker.

Reconnect your water line and flip the ice maker on and the water should start to flow shortly. That s it.

Thanks for asking.

When use water dispeser water comes out from behind the refridge


no real "schematic" available showing how hte water lines are run, but illtell you that they start at teh rear of machine,incoming water, form there they travel to the water filter and into an opening under the refrig side. can be viewed by removing hte lower crisper(theres a holding tank) from ht tank goes back out nad heads for the door assy, so a simple trace of water lins will determine point of leak, usually a fiting or hte water lineitself has dry-rotted, in which case needs replacing, hter are no "hidden" lines with refrig, ohter then within the freezer door,and even that can be removed and replaced if ness.

Ice maker


disconnect the power wires from the valve, if it still fills with water, I would say you have a stuck valve. just because its new, doesnt mean its going to work.
