Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Why will my refrigerator not cut off, runs all the time,

I have to unplug it to stop it from running. It continues to run even if I have the refrig side and the freezer side on the lowest setting possible. Ice maker will fill up and run over in about 12 hrs.

SOURCE: water dispenser keeps running

Allen, one of two things here. The dispenser target switch has gone bad or the actuator arm is not releasing the switch. Remove the front cover by using a small screw driver to unlock the tabs at the bottom. Slide the panel down and out. Disconnect the wire harness. Remove the 4 phillip screws in the door dispenser housing. Slide the housing out and disconnect the target switch and light connectors. Now you can spread out the locking tabs and examine the switch. If this all checks good, then the board is the problem...Catriver...post back.

THE ICE MAKER WILL STOP CYCLING WHEN THE TEMP IN THE FREEZER GETS ABOVE 10 DEGREES. IT HAS A BUILT IN THERMOSTAT THAT TRIPS AT 10 DEGREES.

CHECK THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER FOR FROST. IS THERE A FROST BUILDUP ON THE BACK WALL? IF YES,
THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE.
THREE ITEMS ARE INVOLVED IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
THE CONTROL(TIMER), BI-METAL, AND HEATER. FIND THE CONTROL BEHIND THE TOE PLATE NEAR THE CENTER. THERE IS A KNOB THAT CAN BE TURNED TO ADVANCE THE
TIMER. WHEN IT CLICKS AND SHUTS OFF THE COMPRESSOR AND FAN, IT IS IN DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT FIVE MINUTES AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY SIZZLING OR A RED GLOWING IN THE FREEZER. IF THERE IS, THE TIMER IS BAD. REPLACE IT. IF THERE ISN'T, THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WITH BI-METAL WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.

SOURCE: Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical

I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.

Refrigator does not stop running


Fridge FAN CONTINUALLY STAYS ON OR SHUTS OFF WHEN DOOR IS OPENED:

NORMALLY WHEN THIS HAPPENS U EITHER HAVE A DOOR CONTINUALLY OPEN ISSUE OR A BAD DOOR SEAL LETTING AIR IN AND CAUSING FAN TO OVERWORK ITSELF. ANOTHER CAUSE CAN BE DIRTY COILS AND CONDENSER AND LASTLY NOT TO COMMON IS A SHORT IN THE FAN SYSTEM ITSELF. A MORE PROBABLE CAUSE COULD BE BAD THERMISTORS OR EVEN COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT ( WHEN THE THERMISTORS OR THERMOSTAT DO NOT GET/GIVE A PROPER READING, THEY CAN CAUSE THE FAN TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE AS THEY FAIL TO RECOGNIZE OR REGULATE THE PROPER TEMPERATURE.

I have a profile refrigerator PDS20SCPARSS, SN TF047061. If youopen the door alot ( 4 kids) te refrigerator temp goes all the way to 60deg and the freezer goes to -30. If you don't open the door at all the...


If this is struggling to maintain temperature like this, either the system is low on gas (motor running all the time) or the fan has stopped which you should be able to hear. Make sure that the fan is not just jammed.also check the return air vent in the fridge as if this gets stuck with a spillage ie O.J. etc, the fridge cannot get air from the freezer and the freezer runs continually (-30) but the thermostat never cuts out in the fridge. Last idea most likely.

Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.


Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze
