Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

In a Hotpoint side-by-side freezer/refridgerator with ice and water dispenser in the freezer door, water freezes in the supply line in the freezer door. I can use a hair dryer to warm up the door for about 30 minutes and let it set for about an hour and it will thaw and and water will flow. It had been doing this about once every 2 - 3 monthis. It froze yesterday and I thawed it, and it froze again today. Is there a more permanent solution?

Where do I direct the hot air from an hair dryer to thaw out the water line in my hotpoint side by side refrigerator ?


Hotpoint ref.
made by GE
There is 2 different place they freeze up inside door water line for cold water dispenser & water feed to ice maker.
for cold water disp. Water line depends on model # will start at bottom of door loop over the disp. control and back down from top of control to cup area to defrost this line best way is to shut down ref and leave door on freezer open can take up to 12 hours.
taking door apart is a major project.
If its your ice maker fill tube easy fix turn water supply off.
on back of ref. there is a water line going up to the top of freezer
this tube will pull out from back the whole fill tube will come out
take to sink thaw with warm water replace tube You may need some caulk to seal area tube meet ref.

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

WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

We have a Hotpoint side by side fridge. It always makes


check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser

Have a hotpoint side by side with water and ice in the door....and you can get ice but no water....we put in a new filter but no water will come out,,,,,help...thank you


Shawn- I had the same problem. Take a hair dryer and blow on the inside of the freezer door behind the water and ice dispenser. The water lines freeze up occasionally. Heat it for about ten minutes, spread the heat around so it doesn't melt anything. When you are done, let it stand for about five minutes before you try to get water out of the dispenser. I hope this works for you. Good luck!!!

Hotpoint HSS25GFP: No water coming out of my water dispenser


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 from water dispenser on my ge hotpoint refridgerator


its possible the water tank or tube is frozen up. try turning off the refrigerator and leaving the door open for about 10-15 minutes and see if it will start working again. if that works adj your temp settings to warm the fresh food section up just a little to prevent it from freezing again..
