Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenser beep-beep

Our fridge was working fine till we noticed a water leak behind it. Ruined our tile, but that is another story. Anyway, I pulled the fridge back and notice a dripping leak at the blue intake to the water filter. I pushed the hose in further and it stopped leaking. Since there was not very much hose to pull the fridge back I decided to install a shut off valve and extra tubing to reduce the tension on that line to the filter. I got all that installed and then changed the filter as it also needed to be replaced as the indicator showed thusly. With everything hooked back up, I now have no water to ice maker or dispenser. When a glass is placed against the water dispenser, the lights comes on, the indicator lights up for ounces, then we get two beeps. Nothing else. I have read several forums and have done this: I checked the pressure on the fridge side of the new valve, fine. I checked the new line connection to the clear inlet hose before the filter and pressure was good. I checked that the new filter filled with water, and yes it did. Put old filter back in, and no change. I turned fridge off for a few minutes then back on, no change. Suggestions welcome, Mike

I am wondering about the hose you shoved in and the leak stopped. Is the hose you pushed in buckled where it hooks on or is there a buckled spot where the water comes out of the fridge. Just a guess.

SOURCE: Water Dispenser Drips

A common problem I see is people have the wrong kind of saddle valve on their water line. Make sure you don't have a self-piercing saddle valve. You should have a drill type saddle valve on the cold water line. Reason why, not enough water pressure to the water valve on the fridge. This will let the valve on the fridge hang slightly open which will cause a drip. Check this first. You will find info on this in the installation section of your owners manual.

SOURCE: 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.

The ice dispenser and water dispenser on the door will not work


"Prepare for the worst" This is a problem i'm currently dealing with at the moment, ice maker thaw'd and refroze the ice as a block, binding the crusher turbine till it quit working. then water dispenser started spitting till it quit working, but anyway i disconnected the ice maker and water dispenser power hookup, because when i tried to use it it was drawing off the power of the fridge. now i'm to the point where fridge clicks like the relay is going out. in the back of the freezer below the ice maker tray i removed the clip or screw to where when it clicks i can hand spin the cooling fan on the click, and fridge starts up and runs, but don't remove this panel because having it on helps the air push into fridge compartment and keeps cooling elements from turning to a block of ice, " so long story short " its either your cooling fan or relay on chip board that starts cooling fan, i'm no expert but this is where i'm at hope it helps.

Water is not dispensed but icemaker is working


It's more common to be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
If it doesn't come out then disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If the water comes out then check the reservoir.It's behind the crispers in the fridge.

Water dispenser leak


I think I would think about getting a new one. It would cost more to fix it and then you may not get it back together so it wouldn't leak.

Something leaking from dispenser frame


You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.

Emptying resivoir?


If you shut off the right valve, water to the frige will be cut off. The dispensor may have a small spurt left from the pressure in the lines but it should quickly stop. No water will leak out the back valves since they are shut. Some water from the defrost cycles may be in the lower catch pan by the compressor but that's about it. If you have water off and can still get a full glass out the dispensor... then you don't have the correct valve turned off. Usually, there is a cut off valve in the wall just behind the refer to turn off the water. If you disconnect the hose once water valve is off only the water in the line will drain.
