Question about Hotpoint HSM25GFRSA
We have been hearing the same whine everyone else is experiencing. It comes and goes. Yesterday the water stopped coming out of the nozzle in the door, and when you put a glass in place and make the switch, the lights on the item selection and the curtesy light would dim. The ice box was full, but it would not produce ice thru the flapper and the auger would not rotate to help dispense the ice. So far I checked the obvious; I am getting water supply to the filter, out of the filter, down to the valves, and at first I was only getting water out to the ice maker (but that took about 15mins after plugging it back in). I was checking voltage at the water valve solenoids and was getting 80VAC at the ice maker solenoid, but on the water side I was getting 2VAC. I decided to take a look at the water dispensing area, and check connections. Everything looked okay, I decided to remove the light and see if maybe it was causing an issue. When I pulled the light, I noticed the water nozzle dripped water for a second. So I stock a glass under there and made the switch and bingo I have water! I still could not get the ice to dispense but the box is empty at the moment. I am thinking this is a Main Board problem not producing the right voltages, or a solenoid some where is pulling my voltages down. I supposed it could be the Evap motor burned up and is pulling the voltages down. I haven't tried to unplug that fan motor yet to see if that makes any change in function. Any experts want to comment to help pinpoint? I don't like to just throw parts at something, I'd rather try to pinpoint something first. If someone has some experience with this same issue and could say YES it's a Main Board, or a solenoid pulling my voltages down that would help. Thanks for any help.
Yeah the thermistor wire that needs to be cut is for different model fridges...there were quite a few and mine did not fall into the category based off of the Model number. Thanks for helping me confirm the problem.
