Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
The refrigerator has a blocked condensate drain line. In most Hotpoint models it is easily accesed by pulling out the bin at the bottom. There should be a drain grommet at the center of a trough in back. This plugs up. You may have to pour hot water the thaw out the ice and then either blow out the drain tube or I use a 5/15 plastic hose and push it through the drsin to clear it out. this should fix the problen for a long time. Food particles etc. collect in the drain and ice forms around them and blocks the drain.

The freezer should have a drain hole for the defrost water to flow through. This will drain into a pan outside of the freezer cabinet. If this drain tube becomes blocked it will not allow the water to drain out and it will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer section. You will have to verify that the drain is clear through to the drain pan. this can be done carefully with a piece of stiff wire. There should also be some sort of a water trap on the drain tube to prevent air from entering the freezer compartment through the drain tube.

drain is blocked. to check, pour water into drain gulley in fridge and it should flow away. to clear, push sometthing flexible down the hole. good idea to pour dilute bleach down hole now and again

maybe you fridge is tilting to far forward some times a fridge needs to lean back slightly only by 5 degs so adjust the foot t the front. this will mke the water flow towards the back and also help keep the doors sealed better

I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!
