Most like the controls frosted up in the ice box ... empty the freezer and leave the fridge unplugged for a while ... this will allow the frost to disolve ... plug it back in and it should be ok...

I believe the control board could have gone bad, have you checked it at all? Are you experienced with checking electrical equipment? If not, please have a trained expert open up the fridge and check it. Most likely you will need to replace it. Let me know what you find when you check the board. Is the ice maker going crazy at all? Please post an update. Thank you and Good luck

Control panel lights not working and none of the buttons resond


Power? Has circuit breaker popped? Possible you have ground fault protected outlets and one of them popped like a circuit breaker. It usually causes all outlets on that circuit to also disconnect. They have a reset button similar to other circuit breaker devices, so double check. If it pops again, you may have a serious electrical problem or appliance problem. Unplug all appliances plugin one at a time to discover bad appliance. If none are bad and you still have frig problem. Time to call an electrician. You may be able to verify frig via extension cord from an outlet outside the kitchen. That if lights and buttons work, then you know it's the kitchen circuit problem. If not you may have a major problem with the control panel itself. Time for an appliance technician.

I have model HSS25GFTA WW, and the freezer is not freezing most of the items in it.


First you'll need to determine whether it's a sealed system issue or failure of some other part. Troubleshooting system problems is beyond the scope of this media. YouTube has literally hundreds of such videos.

I have a Hot Point refrigerator model No. HSS25GFTA WW. I changed the filter but water still not coming out of the despencer, every thing else is working normal.


Sometimes you will need to purge the air out of the line after changing the filter. Just hold down the water dispenser for a few seconds every hour or so.

Water pooling in refriderator bottom


The automatic defrost system has to remove humidity that enters when you open and close doors to keep it from icing up on not cooling, yours is not allowing this moisture to drain to a pan by the compressor where it evaporates on its own......
Not sure if your model is a unit with the freezer compartment on the top or bottom, but the repair is the same. You need to remove the back of the freezer compartment, should be a light metal sheet panel held on by a few screws, sometimes there is plastic to pop off, do not force plastic........(also unplug and use a work light)

There will be a aluminum finned square tubing(evaporator) that looks like a radiator. Directly underneath it on the freezer bottom back is the defrost pan with a drain hole in the center. Do not puncture the aluminum tubing or you will lose the freon and ruin your fridge........

If it is frozen with ice on the base, let it thaw overnight, pour hot water down the pan under the evaporator in the morning, and put a towel on the floor, it may or may not overfill the small catch drain pan in back by the compressor...(self evaporating-do not have to empty) Good luck......(you can also remove the ice in the freezer base with hot water and a couple of towels rather than waiting overnight, but again do not damage your evaporator) Reassemble and your done

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.

Freezer has to be thawed out every 2 to 3 days. The refridgerator side isn't staying cool enough to keep milk from spoiling. It is a Hotpoint Model #HSS25GFTA WW and is only 2 1/2 years old. It is a side...


Could be multiple problems. First, check the freezer compartment and make certain that the freezer fan is running. This fan moves cold air from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator. If it's not running, inadequate cold air gets to the refrigerator.

Your having to defrost manually sounds like there could be a problem with the defroster circuitry; however, check out the fan operation first.

The fan should be at the top of the freezer. There is probably an access panel you can remove to see if it's turning. However, you should be able to hear it if it's turning.

If the fan is not turning, you will need to remove it and replace it.

Open neutral. check the fixture/switch closest to the bkr panel that is not working for a bad connection in a wire nut, if not there, move to next fixture/switch closer to the panel
