Question about Hotpoint HSS25IFMCC / HSS25IFMWW Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Hotpoint HSS25IFMD refrigerator. Evaporator fan is not working. Replaced evaporator fan with new one, no help. Checked for power at the main control circuit board in the back of the fridge, Found 13V at connector J2 (where both, evaporator and condenser fans get power from). Any ideas what could be keeping the evaporator fan from spinning?

SOURCE: Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling

You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.

This will work in most all cases of this type. You need a piece of copper wire, 14 guage, 12 to 16 inches. You can shortin it as you need to Turnoff the power to the fridge. Rap one end of the wire around the evaprorator heater and feed the othe end down the drain tube. This wire will heat up when the heater comes on and will supply heat down into the drain tube hopefully preventing the drain from freezing.

SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Model PSC23NSTE SS ...The Evaporator fan works on and off, so the local tech said it was bad. We replaced this item.


Have you checked the voltage coming to the fan from the=> WR55X10606 Main Control Board

As a rule the WR55X10606 Main Control Board should also be changed if a fan motor is changed. If not the old board can also damage the new fan motor. Would you like the service manual? Sea Breeze Service Manual=> HERE

Does not go into defrost mode. refrigerator section becomes hot


The defrost is not working.This happens due to the evaporator coil in the inner section of freezer is got blocked by ice .--------

Try manual defrost reset procedure: ----

First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced.

--------------------

The procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the refrigerator section and the refrigerator section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. Now this problem which you mentioned. In this problem the freezer thaws, this happens if the thermostat is not functioning or the heater is not heating. Then the ice starts getting collected on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is at the internal section of freezer. If too much ice gets collected then this ice blocks the fan in the freezer section from functioning and this blocks the damper section with ice getting collected there. This all procedure is controlled by the defrost board of the unit.

-----------------

So first try reset procedure.If that is not helping then defrost assembly parts are to be checked and replaced.The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.The defrost heater is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.And the defrost control board is located in the fridge section.-------------

you can get the required parts from online sites like:---

www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.---------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a Hotpoint HSS25IFMD WW sise by side


A thermistor is a 2" torpedo looking piece with 2 wires attached to it . The defrost bimetal , a 1" round aluminum piece , snapped onto the coils , with 2 wires , should be replaced when replaceing the heater . This bimetal could be the problem . To test the defrost system , remove the main control board cover . The blue plug with 3 wires to it needs to be connected . Looking at the plug , the wireing will look like this : l l l . Lets call the terminals 1 2 3 . Useing a piece of insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into terminal 2 and the other end into terminal 3 . The heater will come on if both the heater AND bimetal are good . If you put a new heater in and it wont come on , and you do this test , then the bimetal has to be bad . If your terminology is correct , you have 2 thermisters in the freezer . One on top of the coils ( evaporator sensor ) and one at the bottom by the drain pan ( freezer temp sensor ) . Wouldn't hurt to replace both if you replaced one .
