Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Alright, I ended up paying someone to fix this, and just about anyone can do it. Pull EVERYTHING out of the freezer, there are two quater inch sheetmetal screws that hold the back panel on that has frost on it. Remove them and the back panel. WOW LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY ICE! Grab a hair dryer and go to work, thaw it all out and have a towel or shop vac handy, Mamas floor is gonna get wet. Turns out there is a defrost heater here that keeps the coils free from frost, kit number WR23X10467, in my case HSSGFT. If you have to order it, you can throw it back together and it should run for another week before it freezes up again, hopefully your parts will be in by then, just don't loose your hair dryer!
Ok I see after 30+ years someone gets it. Beware though other things besides the heaters can cause the same simptom. Sometimes things are not as simple as they seem. And the question begs to be asked "Do you know if there isa reason other than defective heater that caused the heater to "burn" out? Like there may be a heater safety switch that should considr rteplacing as well, if it isnt working properly the heater will saty in too long and burn out your new one prematurly.
