Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
No, no filters, but, during time scales deposit in the valves of the water and ice dispenser. In the user manual it's clearly stated that the unit must be descaled every 2 years.
Yes, this is a job for a pro, the door of the fridge must be completely dismantled to access the mechanism and the water valves. BTW if the scales have completely obstructed the valve then it must be replaced, and the only ones with access to a replacement part are the pros.

I'm assuming you mean the green light on the ice maker is on steadily. You
could test the ice maker system, by first turning off the ice maker, leave
it off for one minute. Now within ten seconds after turning the ice
maker back on, and with a one second pause in between, push in the
paddle of the ice maker three times, and do nothing else. if the ice maker
is working properly, it should begin to cycle, and eventually call for
If it never cycles or if it cycles and receives water, you have a bad ice maker, if it cycles and does not get water, you have to replace your water valve.
But, sounds like a clogged solinoid valve they're cheap and easy to replace but if you have to dfrost the freezer anyway make sure you let any ice that may be in the fill tube melt before installing new valve. After the defrost check the valve by cycling the ice maker ( turn the drive gear w/ a small screwdriver) an see if it fills if not replace the valve. Unplugged of course. Change the filter and purge the water line.
If you have a power saving switch turn it to normal if this doesnt fix youre freeze over problem then youre next step will be to check the defrost timer but I dont have the specs. on your unit. Could also check the valve with a cheater cord. Very carefully, I betting ont he def timer stat and or the timer for the fridge, and check the drain.
