    I have the same freezing problem on our water line. It has froze up three times this month. This is has to be a design flaw. Their has to be a fix for this.

I have 'repaired' the exact same problem as yours by opening the door and transferring all door items to freezer proper, then putting plasic lined insulation (can be bought at most big box home centers for about $20 a roll) in the door opening to keep cold air in. Then I taped the interior freezer light to the off position, turned the light on at the dispenser, and checked every 15 minutes by pressing dispense paddle. My water started to flow after app. 30-45 minutes. This is after I troubleshot all other avenues and got to where you are now (disconnected at quick connect just before line enters door) where I also had water flow when paddle was press to dispense). I called GE/Hotpoint with problem and their response was that it is not a known issue and I needed to call for a service call at my own expense.

GE has an issue with the water line freezing in the door. Try turning dispenser light on for 24hours the heat it generates warms the line. Also GE has a heater kit available

No water coming through to "ice water" tap


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

Hot point model hss25gfp. can get water at coupling but not out of door dispencer . ice maker works fine. When coupling is disconnected and water is depressed water flows fine from the coupling.


The water line is frozen in the door .Turn on the dispenser light for several hours , or , use a hair dryer aimed up into the dispenser , or , use compressed air in the tube going up into the bottom of the door ( computer cleaning bottle with a small tube ) , or , air compressor hose at the bottom of the door tube , or , order GE dispenser heater kit pt # WR49X10173 ( it comes with instructions ) . After you get it working , turn up ( warmer ) the freezer temp only slightly .

I have a Hotpoint HSS25GFTA WW Fridge that has side by side doors with ice/water dispenser in the freezer (L) door. I still get ice fine but my water dispenser has 'died'. The water has always come out tap...


Hello:
It is very common to have the line in the freezer door freeze up. I would start there first. If that's not it then next step would be your water valve which is located in the back/bottom of the fridge. It is a dual valve( one side for ice maker the other for water dispenser). you can check that by taking off the front kick plate and on the bottom freezer door hinge you will see the line entering the door. Follow it towards the under the fridge and you will find a coupling. Disconnect it and see if there is any water coming out when you press actuator on the door .. If yes then its frozen if no your valve is Kaput.

Cheers

Hotpoint HSS25GFP with a loud howling sound in freezer and no water dispensing


The howling sound usually comes from an electronic control when it's going bad. I've also heard of the noise coming from the special shaped condenser fan you have underneath around back. GE may have a fix for this.

Water to door stopped. I replaced filter. Still no water to door.


the line could have froze in the door,or you have a bad water valve,go to the back of fridge,disconnect the water line and hit the dispenser to make sure it's the valve,if water comes out you know the line is iced up,if it is you can use a hair dryer and heat up the door where the bottom hindge is half way up the freezer door and hit the area where the ice dispenses out the door,

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Water dispenser keeps running


Allen, one of two things here. The dispenser target switch has gone bad or the actuator arm is not releasing the switch. Remove the front cover by using a small screw driver to unlock the tabs at the bottom. Slide the panel down and out. Disconnect the wire harness. Remove the 4 phillip screws in the door dispenser housing. Slide the housing out and disconnect the target switch and light connectors. Now you can spread out the locking tabs and examine the switch. If this all checks good, then the board is the problem...Catriver...post back.
