Question about Hotpoint HSS25IFMCC / HSS25IFMWW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Both sides are warm

My hotpoint is three years old. i've already had a repairman 1 1/2 years ago. The temperature is warming up and everything is thawed out. It makes a loud noise like a clock ticking. Is it anything I can fix or is this another call to the repairman for what seems like a temporary fix ?

Can yiou tell me what the repairman did? the ticking is the air damper but the cooling is a separate issue. call a different repairman to have them take a look at the compressor, heat exchanger or evaporator as these could all the be source of the problem.

All is possible but it would help to know the make, model, and year. If you suspect ice fouling, try warming with a propane torch using gentle sweeping strokes.

It is three and a half years old and ices up even at warm temps.


The problem you're having is generally caused by the air intake filter needing to be removed and cleaned and/or the cooling coils need to be cleaned.

I assume you already know how to remove and clean the filter, since you've had the unit for 3 1/2 years, so I won't bore you by addressing that.

The coils can be cleaned with warm water and a mild dish washing detergent using a sponge or rag. Once they have been wiped down, rinsed and dried, apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

My refrigerator is 9 years old and yesterday it started thawing everything out it is running but not keeping anything cold


If the compressor is running and the fan under the unit I am afraid you need to buy a new fridge. This normally means its low on freon you could have a repairman add some but at 9 years old I would recommend a replacement. But make sure the compressor is running and not just the fan the compressor will hum.

Refrigerator/freezer won't stay cold.


With the defrost timer being replaced already it sounds as if the repairman is not looking at the real problem. Unit works for 2 days then things start thawing. Hint Hint... it is not defrosting. There is a heating element inside the freezer section attached underneath the internal tubing that melts the ice every 6 to 8 hours via the defrost timer depending on the defrost timer installed. To prove that it is not defrosting..... just unplug the unit and place a stand fan blowing into the freezer for about 90 minutes. I would bet that once you plug it back in it wil work for 2 days and the problem once again repeats. With 2 calls on the same unit and you still have the same problem I would be calling the service people back and demand they fully troubleshoot the defrosting element and thermostat. Personally this is an unstatisfactory performance of an in home service by a repairman. With the exception of a new part if required, they should wave any labor and service call fees.

I have a hotpoint refrigerator with model number: HSS25GFTA BB. It's 3 years old, about 1 year ago the freezer seems to slightly melt and refreeze and keep cycling the same thing. To cause ice to build up...


You have a defrost problem. No biggie. Check your heaters first, then your t-stat and timer. After a year, you may need to repalce all three parts as after time, the ice takes out other parts if they are not changed right away. You will need to make sure the unit is completely thawed out before replacing parts for optimum use. Call or email us for the part that you need and we'll be sure to get them to you right away! Hope this solves all your problems.

if this is a side by side refrigerator, then the space between the doors is not heated by an electric heater. it is heated by part of the condensing coil. so the excess heat is probably generated by a loss of adequate airflow under the machine. which would explain the temperature change in the refrigerator.
  • clean the coils under the machine and make sure the fan is working.
  • make sure the airflow is not obstructed in any way.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
