Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
Your model number is missing the last 3 digits. Having said that when you depress the water in door acutator arm you should hear an audible "click" from a micro-switch. No click = water in door micro-switch. One thing to make sure of is that the ice maker is also working properly. If both the ice-maker and water in door functions have stopped working then the door / light switch has failed. The door light switch is item 608 this link:
To test the door light switch you remove power... use a knife blade to release the SINGLE lock tab on the side of the 3 terminal switch and pull it free of the chassis. Then you locate terminal C of the siwtch (common). Read from common to the other 2 terminals. Only ONE of the 2 terminals wirll read continuity. Depress the plunger and read to the remaining terminal. You MUST read continuity. No continuity with the plunger depressed = bad door switch.
If you are only experiencing the no water in door symptoms and your sure the micro-switch for the water in foor actuation arm is working then the most likely suspect is the inlet water valve:
For reference purposes I am using this model number: HSS25GFPAWW All of the water carrying components and switches are exactly the same regardless of model and there are 7 different models under the HSS25GFP model number.
If you have access to a multi meter open the back of the unit by removing the fiberboard cover. Locate the inlet water valve and read the resistance on the 2 coils / solenoids. You may have to slide the connector off of the solenoid to check the resistance. The resistance should be the same on each one. I suspect that you have an open coil. The water valve is item 800 this link:
Should you discover that micro-switch is not working it is item 72 of this link:
