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

SOURCE: Freezer has to be thawed out every 2 to 3 days.

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.

SOURCE: inside my side by side freezer side (hss25gfta ww)

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.

SOURCE: refrigerator hss25gfta ww no power at

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.

NOTE: This
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

Control panel lights not working and none of the buttons resond

Power? Has circuit breaker popped? Possible you have ground fault protected outlets and one of them popped like a circuit breaker. It usually causes all outlets on that circuit to also disconnect. They have a reset button similar to other circuit breaker devices, so double check. If it pops again, you may have a serious electrical problem or appliance problem. Unplug all appliances plugin one at a time to discover bad appliance. If none are bad and you still have frig problem. Time to call an electrician. You may be able to verify frig via extension cord from an outlet outside the kitchen. That if lights and buttons work, then you know it's the kitchen circuit problem. If not you may have a major problem with the control panel itself. Time for an appliance technician.

I have model HSS25GFTA WW, and the freezer is not freezing most of the items in it.

First you'll need to determine whether it's a sealed system issue or failure of some other part. Troubleshooting system problems is beyond the scope of this media. YouTube has literally hundreds of such videos.

I have a Hot Point refrigerator model No. HSS25GFTA WW. I changed the filter but water still not coming out of the despencer, every thing else is working normal.

Sometimes you will need to purge the air out of the line after changing the filter. Just hold down the water dispenser for a few seconds every hour or so.

I have a Hotpoint HSS25GFTA WW Fridge that has side by side doors with ice/water dispenser in the freezer (L) door. I still get ice fine but my water dispenser has 'died'. The water has always come out tap...

Hello:
It is very common to have the line in the freezer door freeze up. I would start there first. If that's not it then next step would be your water valve which is located in the back/bottom of the fridge. It is a dual valve( one side for ice maker the other for water dispenser). you can check that by taking off the front kick plate and on the bottom freezer door hinge you will see the line entering the door. Follow it towards the under the fridge and you will find a coupling. Disconnect it and see if there is any water coming out when you press actuator on the door .. If yes then its frozen if no your valve is Kaput.

Cheers
