Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hotpoint Frige My water stoped working and the ice would not despence, however the fridge and freezer werwe still working fine. about 36 hours later I heard a ticking noise coming from the circut board in the back of the fridge. At this point the compressor would not kick on. I took the back panel of the unit and found a mouse body wedged in the fan I removed it and i'm getting the same clicking sound. I thought it was the fan gone bad, but after replacing the fan motor I still get the clicking sound and the units compressor still won't kick on. HELP!

Iv got a fridge freezer frost free hotpoint the freezer is keeping frozen but my frige is warm all the time can u please tell me what the problem could be please.

If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Can the icemaker on my hotpoint no frost fridge freezer s/s be turned off

Just turn the water off at the connection point behind the frige. otherwise you will have to disconnect the connector behind the side wall of the ice maker by removing the ice maker.

ice blockage occured. check the damper in back of fridge to check air flow. usually when the drain is clogged it acumulates water causing it to freeze on the damper causing blockage

My frige stays warm all the time it is a Hotpoint

evaporator coils are iced up on the freezer side. either take everything out of the fridge and unplug it and let it sit for a day to defrost, or remove the inside rear panel where there is frost and (with the fridge off) use warm water sprayed on the ice to defrost it (or use a hair dryer, but just until the ice is melted. do not overheat the metal). soak up the excess water (underneath the fridge, too), and turn it on empty. let it run empty for a day to get it cold, then put the stuff back in. if the stuff is in there when it's warm, the humidity will ice up the coils again.

Hotpoint FFA71 fridge and freezer suddenly stopped working

Sounds as though the compressor has stopped working. It feeds both compartments with control from a printed circuit above the top door.Where all your red lights are ablaze! (This can be replaced by removing the 2 screws and "clicking" out the small panel) Check that the compressor is running at the bottom rear of the fridge/freezer before anything else.

Ge ice maker stoped working

Check out the tray heating element that is designed to melt the ice slightly so it can be scooped out into the waiting tray.

If there is no water or ice in the tray, then check out the solenoid that allows water into the system.
