Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge is making noise

Hotpoint HSS25GFP D WW
We have had it 4 years now. Almost from day one it has made moans and groans when running. We were able to ignore the sounds mostly, although lately it is starting to have a high pitch tone. It is driving me and my dog crazy listening to it.

Re: fridge is making noise

The high pitched sound could be from the evap fan motor. If you can get to it a drop of silicon oil would solve the problem.

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling

Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

My hotpoint fridge dispenses ice, but not water. The filter has been changed. Model #HSS25GFPE WW

Set up a shop light, one of those Halogen type lights. And have it shining right on it at the highest setting. The water in the line has frozen. After about 30 minutes to an hour it should start working again. You could also use a blow dryer but I'd rather not stand in front of the fridge that long. Remember if you got kids in the house to warn them not to touch the light!

Hi i have a hotpoint hss25gfpj ww side by side

Very common. Most likely you need a main control board, located in the back of the fridge.

Hotpoint fridge problem, warm fride, but freezer working good

Fridge along bottom shelves is much colder than the very top shelf which has milk etc., leading to spoilage. Fridge is at highest setting. In the upper left rear of the fridge compartment, is a cover for what I believe to be a circulatory fan. However, trying to remove this cover is difficult.
It seems that the clip nuts to which the two (2) small capscrews fasten are free wheeling and not allowing me easy access to the motor.

Please advise.

Fridge makes loud moaning sound

It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.

Noisy Refrigerator

hi there i'am affraid that the noise you are getting from your fridge is normal this is due to the illegal use of r12 refridgerant gas as from 1999, the replacement gas is r600 which is ozone friendly but can be rather noisy giving off a whiriny' hissing,groaning and some times like water falling.

hope this is of some help
