Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working

The icemaker in my HSS25GFP stopped working a few weeks back. After reading alot of the posted solutions to similar problems it seemed that the most recommended course of action was to just get a new icemaker. I purchased and installed a new icemaker; it made not difference at all. Here are the symptoms: - Ice maker unit is on - No ice cubes are produced from the icemaker unit. - Water flows into ice tray OK. - Water freezes in ice tray and then the ice cubes just sit there in the tray. The heater never comes on. The motor never trys to flip them out of the tray into the ice bin. Ice cubes are never released from the tray into the ice bin. What can I check or do from here? I'm an engineer so I'm not afraid to take stuff apart and test voltages, etc. Thank you.

Are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe

Have a Hotpoint model HSM25GFRA SA Ice maker stopped did some checking ond found the water solinoid to ice maker was open and replaced it. But still no ice, have removed ice maker, cleaned and defrost

Check to see if there is ice blocking the tube to the icemaker. Sometimes when the valve is giong bad or the icemaker sits too long without making ice the tube will freeze and block up with ice.

Icemaker 200D1181G026 WR30X10061 model can15. Is there anyone who can test it and rpair it. It jst stopped working. Water supply ok.

The icemaker system on these machines requires 3 things:
A working ice maker. a working water valve, and 28 degrees or better in the freezer.
Nothing else in the frig controls ice production. Most times the water valve goes first. It is recommended to replace it when replacing the ice maker. Replace the water valve now and see if the ice production starts up. If it does not you will need to get a new ice maker, the old ones are not repairable.

Very common. Most likely you need a main control board, located in the back of the fridge.

Icemaker makes to much ice

The stop bar is a level switch that is either not rising or is defective. You can check with the a parts supply to see if you can purchase this switch separately. If you cannot, you need to replace the ice maker unit.
