Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Fridge started clicking a couple of days ago, noticed that it maybe wasn't cooling as well as it should be. today confirmed that it was warming up so pulled all of the food out and started troubleshooting. relay on the main pcb is clicking, compressor not coming on. stops clicking if you press the ice/water dispenser lever. compressor comes on if I disconnect the lower middle connector from the upper portion of the pcb, but looks like the fans aren't working inside the fridge to circulate air.
looking inside the freezer when relay clicks, the fan bumps a little but doesn't start spinning.
front panel water doesn't work either, but that's small potatoes if the whole fridge is borked.
My dad opened the freezer pannel in the back of freezer inside the fridge and when it clicks we hand spin the cooling fan right on the click and it picks up and runs i believe this could be a result from iether a magnet from cooling fan casing may be crack'd or somthing to do with the bushings

First of all Give me model# and Serial#.
you will most likely have to replace main control board and evaporator fan motor. They have had a service bulletin out on this problem.
