Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Hotpoint CTF21E refrigerator, the ice make is not working, seems that water is not being delivered to the freezer. I suspect the solenoid valve is not operating perhaps because it is not seeing the electrical signal to energize. Where can I get an electrical wiring diagram for the refrigerator or do you have any suggestions what I should look for when troubleshooting.

Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
Post back and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working

It's possible that the tube that supplies water to the ice maker is blocked with ice (freezer temp. too cold) and not allowing water to get to the Ice tray.
You can squeeze the tube to see if it's iced, and if so you can melt the ice with a blow dryer and adjust your freezer temp. to the manufacturer's suggested setting and work from there.
I have seen this happen, but there are other problems such as just a broken ice maker too.
Good luck.

Not making ice


For ice maker to work make sure freezer temp is at least 10 degrees or less. Check for water in tray - if no water suspect water solenoid, if ice in tray check heater circuit for ice cube removal.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator #JCD2389DES. The ice maker became stuck and kept delivering ice cubes even after dispenser was released. I finally opened the freezer door and got it stopped. Now it...


Yes it could be either, BUT I would go back and make sure that everything you did to stop it the first time is undone. Is everything setted correctly? Is the switches in the right place?

Neither the solenoid or the microswitch could cause the problem you had before, so I would suspect something is not right with the ice maker itself.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator warming up


Hi
There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.


Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.

Hotpoint CTF15ELD top freezer refrigerator - freezer O.K. refrig too warm


It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.
