Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

I HAVE A wailing HOTPOINT HSS25GFPH WW refrigerator

I HAVE A HOTPOINT HSS25GFPH WW SIDE-BY-SIDE refrigerator/ freezer. Everything works, but it makes a loud howling, wailing, sound when it runs. I vacuumed the condenser coil and fan, but it did not help. The sound rises and falls in pitch. I don't think there are "scroll" compressors in these refrigerators, but it sounds a bit like one. Any ideas?

If it's like ours, Hotpoint replaced our motherboard under a recall, and it had the exact same symptoms as yours did.

Inside my side by side freezer side (hss25gfta ww)


The ice maker water inlet valve has failed allowing water to pass when it is not supposed to pass. The water valve is item 800 of this link. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5203104&diagram_id=24933031#d24933031

Changing the water valve most always returns the ice maker operation back to normal.

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.

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 happing 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

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

No ice/whole unit not cold enough


Yes, it is possibly some freon was lost but I doubt it. It is very possible a fan froze when it was moved. I would assume when the fan motor got cold the lubrication got stiff and will not let it start again. You should also check the condenser fan first and be sure the coils are clean. If that is all clean and working, check the fans in the refrigerator and freezer. The freon thing would be the last thing to check and you will probably need a person licensed to make that check.
Good Luck,

You need to replace the main control board . One of the resistors , are burnt , keeping the DC voltage , from reaching the fan . Check to see if the fan will run off a little 9 volt battery . If so , replace the board . Pt # WR55X10656 . The board cannot be repaired ( with this problem ) and has to be replaced .

GSS201EPH WW.... Freezer is making a very loud noise. It sounds like a fan hitting. Everything works


Check to see if the condenser fan in the rear of the fridge towards the bottom isn't hitting anything. If its inside the fridge it might be ice built up around the evaporator fan.

Howling sound from freezer fan section


it is most likely the fan bushings that are making the noise. you can try to lube them with a light oil if you want to buy some time. but the fan motor will need to be replaced soon.

Fridge makes loud moaning sound


It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.
