Problems with HOT POINT MODEL# HSM221FTA SA serial# ML211057

Could u please help me.. I have a side by side hotpoint only 1 year and 6 months old. the icemaker will not make any ice, but it sounds like the fan still runs. It comes on for long periods of time then shuts off. The refrigerator side is warm or not as cold as it should be. I took off the filter thinking that might be the problem since the water out of the water dispenser flows slowly. I've also checked the backside and it was dusty around the condensor coils. I tried to brush some of it off, but this still does not appear to be the problem. The arm is down on the icemaker, but still no ice. Since there is not a warranty on the refrigerator, the repair man charges $80.00 just to come out and look at it plus parts and labor. I would like to have some knowledge of what is going on with it if I am just not able to fix it myself so I will not get taken for something I could have done myself.
Thanks for your help.

Make sure that condenser coil is cleaned even if you have to blow it out with compressed air. Check the freezer compartment for snow on back wall. If you have snow on the back wall you have a defrost system problem. If the water is slow coming out of the dispenser and the ice maker is not making ice it may be a supply water pressure problem. There is a five or on some models a ten year warranty on the compressor. This depends on your make and model which you did not include.

I would like to know how old is this machine?


Hotpoint use the first 2 digits of the serial number to deote the year and month, running from "01" to "96" and repeating the first 2 digits every 8 years, so a machine starting "12" was made in either: December 2014, December 2006, December 1998 or December 1990

Go to geappliances.com and click on the "Service and Support" link on the left-hand side of the screen. On the next page, click on the "Contact Us" link. You have the option of using their knowledge base to see if any of the posted questions will help you. Or, you can send an email to them to address the issue and you can call them directly. If you decide to call, I would recommend the "GE Answer Center", or the "GE Warranty Management" links. Since you just purchased the item recently, they still may honor a replacement or free repair if there's something wrong with the appliance. Since you can't find your receipt, your serial number may come in handy to prove this point. The first two letters "FR" indicate that this applaince was manufactured in February of 2008 which makes it about 3 months old. Most manufacture warranties are for one year. With this information and a store number of the Wal-Mart where you purchased the item from, you shouldn't have any problems resolving this issue. I hope this information is helpful to you.

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.
