The 643V has an issue that it can freeze the water in the line during winter.
You must switch the fridge off until the water starts to run again. Then set the temperature of the fridge up as high as possible in winter. Draw 1 litre of water at least twice a day during winter.

This fixed my problem.

You can set the tempertaure back down in the fridge during summer without a problem.

My fridge keeps freezing my food


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Water dispenser not working, keeps shutting off.


Often if you experience a freeze up it will take less time to refreeze because the tubing never got clear during the defrost originally. Try the defrost again and this time run at least a gallon of water through the water dispenser.

And although you say keep the vent open I have to offer the opposite solution close the vent. Too much cold air from the freezer is getting into the bottom of the fridge. closing the vent should allow the temp to rise. Assuming yours is a manual vent. If it is thermostatically controlled the controls may be at fault or the vent door may be warped or blocked open by ice.

If this helps you reach the next level of solving your problem please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Water does not flow through the dispenser


sounds like the sensors are playing up causing the bottom of the fridge to freeze, this will also cause the water reservior to freeze thus no water to the ice tray and water dispensor. do a full defrost then see if you gain back all the functions proving the sensor fault.

I have a Hotpoint hss25gfpe ww fridge with ice and water in the door. The ice works, but I am unable to get water. Why can I not get any water? The serial # is tf261776 if this is needed.


Most water dispensing fridges have a tank in the fridge to keep the water cold. If the fridge temp is too low it might freeze the tank and stop the water from dispensing. Also check the water filter to make sure it is not frozen. Water filters should be replaced every 6-12 months, if it's been longer than that it might be too full of dirt to allow water past. It also might be the water inlet valve is not opening.

Samsung american style fridge/freezer needs repairing


Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.
