Hotpoint ice dispenser door not sealing

Hotpoint hss25gfpa: The flap the opens automatically to dispense ice is not sealing well (about 1/8" gap at bottom when closed) causing excessive frosting in that area inside the freezer. The dispenser light also has just begun staying on.

Walk in freezer solenoid not opening


Many Kenmore side-by-side refrigerators have an ice and water dispenser installed on the outside of the freezer door. The ice dispenser has a flap that opens to allow ice to be released, and closes after dispensing to keep the cold air inside of the freezer. The dispenser flap is opened and closed by a solenoid, that when energized pulls the plunger attached to the flap, opening the door. If the flap stops opening and closing, it is likely due to a faulty solenoid.

Ice will not dispence thru door.


Without knowing the brand and model # I can offer the most common solution.

On most "pass the ice through the door" models there is a flapper door where the ice dispenses. The spring which holds this door closed when you are not dispensing ice becomes weak allowing the flap to stay open jsut a bit. This open space will create an ice dam in teh dispenser thus not allowing the ice to dispense. The repair is generally made by replacing the flap assembly.

All the best.

Hotpoint FWD70 - dispenser flap not opening. My Hotpoint FWD70P detergent dispenser flap does not open during the wash cycle and the wash tablet does not disolve.


This has hapened to me twice. I am no expert so treat the following with caution. This is what has worked for me.

1/ I sugest you check the dispenser solenoid - it should be about 1.65K. If it is open circuit buy a new dispenser assy - about £29.00 - try http://www.hotpoint-spares.co.uk/dispenser-assembly-for-fdw70p-p-121945.html. This sorted my first failure.

2/ My second failure occured 18 months later. I removed and checked the solenoid as above. I found the resistance was OK so I put it all back together and it now works OK so I can only think that there was a bad connection at the dispenser which all the disconnection / reconnection sorted out (two connectors at dispenser).

3/ A word of warning - take especial care not to damage the seal aroud the dispenser - this seal is somewhat delicate.

4/ If all else fails, try an expert !

Frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser


you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

Frost buildup in ice-dispenser tube


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced. The problem you describe is almost always air laekage around that flap. Post back if you need more help.

Frost buildup on ice/water dispenser


Is the trap door flap closing properly where the ice comes through the door? If open, warm air would be coming in frosting and maybe iceing things up
