Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

How do I hook up the 4 water lines hanging from back of a Hot Point HSS251FMDW side by side refrigerator

There are four water lines in the back of the refrigerator. There used to be no water going into the filter and the lines were just dangling in the back. 1 black water line is hanging from the icemaker. 2 grey water lines are hanging from the water filter. 1 thick white line is going into the water dispenser. The solenoid only has one inlet and two outlets. I know that the black line from the icemaker goes into the solenoid. I need to see the diagram to be able to hook it up correctly. I think that the refrigerator filter lines were cut at one point previously so I need to see a diagram to correctly fix and hook up the lines.

Okay this is pretty easy to find. Just trace where your water line comes into the back of the refer. You may have to remove the back panel. As you trace it in you will see where it comes to the valve. The solenoids are on the valve, one for the water (if you have water and ice in the door) and one for the ice maker. Both solenoids are on the same valve. If your ice maker runs and dumps fine and you don't have any water on the floor then it is your valve (water side) even though your ice maker is fine you may have to replace the whole valve as it is one unit.

SOURCE: Water Dispenser Drips

Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

My LG refrigerator has the ice maker hooked up to the hot water heater, is this right. MY HOT WATER HEATER HAS SLUDGE IN IT THAT IS GOING INTO THE ICE MAKER AND MAKING FOUL SMELLING AND TASTING ICE. ...


Having ice maker hooked up to hot water side is common practice...because the water is heated before it gets to be sent to the ice maker, it would have less air in the ice...kinda like a crude way to distill the water.

The sludge is from mineral deposits in your water...sometimes called hard water.

One of the best investments in areas of hard water is a water softener system, in-line water filters, or a combination of both.

Ya might look to see if there is a filter in the refrigerator to filter water before it gets to the ice maker as well.

Hope this helps...

Sears model KSRA25FKBL00 How do I remove the icemaker to replace it


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -

1. Ensure that the water going into the ice maker is shut off. If there is not a valve on the water line going to the refrigerator, check under the house, because there is usually a shutoff valve there. 
If there is no shutoff valve for the water line, which is rare, it is possible to cap off the water line with a screw on end cap. If this is the case, you would have to shut the water off completely in the house, cap off the water line, and turn the water back on.
2. Remove the container that holds the ice, as well as any plastic shelves.
3. Remove the screws holding the ice maker in place. There are usually only two and they connect the icemaker to the inside of the freezer.
4. Disconnect the wiring harness that is hooked up to the ice maker.
5. Disconnect the water line from the ice maker.
6. Remove the ice maker.

Please post comments for more help or information........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Thinking about getting a fridge with a water dispenser - do I need to have a conection to a water pipe


Yes, With a water dispenser or even an ice maker you need to connect to a cold water pipe. The connection is a simple "saddle valve" which clamps over your water line and then you screw a sharp piercing point into the water line. After peircing the water line you back the point back out to let the water flow. A 1/4" tubing either plastic or copper will go from the valve to the back of the refrigerator. The tubing hooks to the back of the refrigerator with a simple slip or compression fitting.
You can run the tubing for long distances if you need to but usually in a kitchen area it is not too far to find a water pipe.
So go ahead and buy that fridge that you want, knowing that the hookup will be a simple easy, procedure!!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Dispenses Ice..but not Water


I have found that when ice hangs up in the door causing the water line to freeze right at the very end of the water line. Remove the ice jam and apply cloth that has been wet with hot water to line for @ 20 sec. with a cup in place engage the water dispenser and please note that the ice plug may dislodge with force due to water pressure in the line.

Hi: No.1 it takes 24 to 72 hours for the machine to make ice. No. 2, If the freezer is not at zero degrees it will not make ice. I'm not talking frozen but zero F. Ice cream will be rock hard. These icemakers are thermally proctected as not to dump unfrozen ice in the tray. I hope this helps, Jeff

HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE


What you have in the back is a 1/4 tube which will feed cold water to the icemaker.

go to any hardware store and ask for an icemaker supply line kit. It will consist of a tapping valve, about ten feet of 1/4 inch tubing and a straight connector.

it will also contain step by step instructions.

You will have to determine what cold water line to tap into that is accessable. Perhaps the kitchen sink cold water supply if it is on the same wall as the refrigerator. Many times the line is run up from the basement.

enjoy your new icemaker.
