Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

SOURCE: freezer drips water into frigde filling up ottom tray

Hello, If it is a top mount freezer then there is a drain that runs from the freezer to the drain pan that gets gummed up sometimes and if that happens then the water has no place to go but the fridge. Look all the way in the back of the fridge and you'll see a yellowish colored tube. You can just pop that out and take it to the sink and clean it out.. Hope this helps

You have a seal system leak not worth the repair bill unless it is a very expensive fridge:)

SOURCE: My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray

Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

Ventilate!....shows in window and machine will not ventilate when knob is opened. it has regularly been de-scaled but we do live in a hard-water area.

Generally you can clear the ventilate error by pressing the button for Hot Water and then opening the steam knob. You should hear the pump run and water should start to flow from the steam wand. If it doesn't, try removing the frother nozzle so just the chrome pipe is showing.

To remove the frother nozzle you slide the outer sleeve off, and then grip the nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to loosen it. Then it should slide off the metal steam pipe. Or you can check that the tip of the nozzle isn't clogged.

If you have the frother removed and the steam pipe is definitely open and not clogged and you still hear the pump running but no water is coming out, the next step is to prime the pump.

If you still have the squeeze bulb pump that came with the machine, you can use that - or if you don't have it, a turkey baster will work. You want to take the water tank off and set it aside, then pump water into the valve in the center where the tank had been sitting. You choose "Hot Water" and open the steam valve so the pump starts and then pump water into that valve with the Turkey Baster. You should hear the pump catch and start to move the water - when this happens immediately close the steam valve so the pump stops - then replace the water tank (filled with water please) and open the steam valve again and let water run out of the steam wand for several seconds.

That should clear the ventilate message.

Terrific noise when defrosting cycle starts

check the back of the fridge, sounds like pipes are rubbing underneath, if you feel you are competent then follow the next steps, 1. Turn the fridge off and unplug it. 2. get to the back of the fridge with a good light or torch and inspect the pipe work, 3. make sure nothing is touching itself and be careful not to touch the black oval shape object as it may be hot (normal). if everything looks ok plug the fridge in and see if you can still hear it ,if the noise is anything other than pipe work , depending on the model you have , it could be either a fan bearing of the compressor is on its way out.

Larder fridge is icing up inside have had a look at the back and noticed it is very hot

There are a couple of reasons for ice-up. Let's check them:
  1. First, clean any coils in the back or underneath completely.
  2. Defrost the unit thoroughly. This could take a while and may lead to a quart/liter of water coming out. Usually this takes a day or so but can be sped up with a hair dryer or other heat source...electricity and water DON'T mix!
  3. Make sure all circulation vents in the box are unblocked.
  4. Start the unit. Watch the larger of the two pipes coming to the compressor...that big black thing under the fridge. It should frost up and then either dry out or stay wet after a half hour or so. If the frost stays on while the compressor is running, you are short on refrigerant'll need to get additional gas added.
Note: minimize the amount of uncovered liquids, the amount of time the door stays open and clean off dirt on door gaskets (be sure they fit properly by sliding a sheet of paper between the gasket and the frame of the should move with some snubbing.
