Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
You could have a bad heater,thermostat and there's a sensor on top,look at it,if it has a black ring around it where the wires go into it you need to change that out too.there's a computer board in this too but it sounds like you just have a defrost problem,bad heater or thermostat.unplug it melt out all the ice,with a meter read out the heater,also look at it,if it's all black looking inside the glass change it out even if it reads good with the meter,the heater is bad if it's black,if you're going to do this yourself it's not a bad idea to change the thermostat too.part number for the heater is WR51X10055 and it's around 40 dollars and the thermostat is WR50X10068 and it's around 15 dollars.also check the sensor part number wr55x10025 and it's around 8 dollars.cut the wires close to the body of the thermostat,they give you wire connectors to connect the new thermostat and the same with the sensor if the sensor has the black ring around it where the wires connect to it,if it's all white leave it alone and melt out all the ice with a hair dryer,you can't read out the thermostat if it gets warm so just melt out all the ice first with the fridge unplugged then remove the heater,read it out with a meter and look at it if it looks black inside the glass the heater is bad if it looks and reads good with the meter then just change out the thermostat and you should be fine.good luck,if you need any more help let me know

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. Then its defrost board problem.
If it's again building up ice that means the unit is not defrosting. It's starting the cooling procedure, and then while defrosting, it's not working. The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
