Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Hotpoint HSM25GFRESA REFRIG., DOOR WATER/ICE DISPENSER, the round rubber seal on the flapper that auto opens has become warped and is not sealing. I tried to get it to lay flatter and seal and it came off. How do I get into that area of the door to replace the rubber ring/seal on to the flapper. I can't get my hands far enough into the opening from outside freezer door to slip it on. HELP! Dale Hatch

Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

That is the problem and it needs to be replaced . But some times service will find more than one part worn and needing replacement!

You need service this time !
Sounds like a Thermostat problem!

If this is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put ALOT of good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

SOURCE: Ice Dispenser "Flapper" is loose--How does it reattach?

the plastic arms that move the flapper door open and closed are broken. I had this happen to me some months back. You will need to buy a repair kit from your local dealer. Explain what is broken and they can look up their part/kit number. You can't buy just the plastic door. Mine cost about $30 but was worth the price of getting my ice maker dispenser operating again. Very minor mechanics required to open this portion of the mechanism. Mostly some removal of screws and a spring or two. Good luck.

SOURCE: the ice dispenser rubber door or seal does not

Remove the top freezer hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the door . At the bottom of the dispenser cover , but inside the dispensing area , between the grill and the cover , insert a small screwdriver about 1 " in on both sides , and push down and inward , forcing the bottom of the cover outward . Do this carefully , due to plastic tabs on the dispenser cover . After bottom is loose , lift upward , to release the top plastic slots of the cover . Disconnect the plug on the cover . Remove the 2 screws holding the dispenser housing , and slide forward . You should now be able to see the door flap , return spring and pin . You will have to see which part(s) are needed or what the situation is . Maybe pin slid out , maybe the clear plastic ice guide , connected to the dispenser activator arm , broke loose , obstructing the closure of the door flap . Come back with your findings and a model number , and myself or another expert , will be glad to give you part numbers .

SOURCE: 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

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

Water leaking from the bottom of the freezer door on a frigidaire side by side (water and ice in the door). any suggestions?


Check the connection to your water filter and check to see if the door seals completely when closed. To do this gently rub colord washing up liquid on the sels and close the door, then open it and look to see of the seal left a soapy mark on the frame of the fridge. it is often the case that the door can warp and this leads to the ice crystals and subsequent melt water around the area that is not sealing.

I have a 6th sense whirlpool 25.6 cu with water


First , remove the kick plate and make sure the coils are clean of dust . lint , pet hair , etc . Then pull the refrig out and remove the rear lower panel , covering the compressor and cooling fan ( evaporator motor ) . Make sure this motor is working , if the compressor is running . If the fan does not work , then replace it as soon as possible . This fan , cools the coils and the compressor , which if not working , causes the divider strip to become extremely hot , and could cause the compressor to have problems , due to the heat . After removing the rear panel , be sure to re-install it , as this is there , to direct the air flow as needed .

Hot Point Refrig.


this could have been due to leaving door open by accident so excess ice formed. water just evaporates with heat from the compressor
