Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators
I would try unpluging the unit for about 10 minutes to see if it would revert to defaults

The problem is most likely the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator. You can test the ice maker by filling with water and let freeze. If ice dumps then the water valve must be replaced. Your model has 3 different choices of water control valves. If the ice maker does nothing but freeze the water and not cycle or dump the ice then I would say the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Testimonial: "Tryed what you said to test ice maker ,ice did not drop out.Can you tell me what part # i need for the thermostat in the ice maker?.....Thank you."
Could be multiple problems. First, check the freezer compartment and make certain that the freezer fan is running. This fan moves cold air from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator. If it's not running, inadequate cold air gets to the refrigerator.
Your having to defrost manually sounds like there could be a problem with the defroster circuitry; however, check out the fan operation first.
The fan should be at the top of the freezer. There is probably an access panel you can remove to see if it's turning. However, you should be able to hear it if it's turning.
If the fan is not turning, you will need to remove it and replace it.

The ice maker water inlet valve has failed allowing water to pass when it is not supposed to pass. The water valve is item 800 of this link. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5203104&diagram_id=24933031#d24933031
Changing the water valve most always returns the ice maker operation back to normal.

The problem with your unit is most likely not the control board at the back as replacing it has brought about no change. Most likely the problem with your unit is the wiring which brings power to the door. The wires which run to the door and supply power to the lights and the dispencers to enable them function properly might have some inconsistencies therefore the flow of power has been cut off to the door. Although it could be the connecting switch which is not properly connected on one end or might have simply just disconnected. get an expert to trace the power supply to the door components and once that is done the problem should be solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

SOURCE: Ice cube maker not functioning.
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
