Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Our fridge was working fine till we noticed a water leak behind it. Ruined our tile, but that is another story. Anyway, I pulled the fridge back and notice a dripping leak at the blue intake to the water filter. I pushed the hose in further and it stopped leaking. Since there was not very much hose to pull the fridge back I decided to install a shut off valve and extra tubing to reduce the tension on that line to the filter. I got all that installed and then changed the filter as it also needed to be replaced as the indicator showed thusly. With everything hooked back up, I now have no water to ice maker or dispenser. When a glass is placed against the water dispenser, the lights comes on, the indicator lights up for ounces, then we get two beeps. Nothing else. I have read several forums and have done this: I checked the pressure on the fridge side of the new valve, fine. I checked the new line connection to the clear inlet hose before the filter and pressure was good. I checked that the new filter filled with water, and yes it did. Put old filter back in, and no change. I turned fridge off for a few minutes then back on, no change. Suggestions welcome, Mike
I am wondering about the hose you shoved in and the leak stopped. Is the hose you pushed in buckled where it hooks on or is there a buckled spot where the water comes out of the fridge. Just a guess.

A common problem I see is people have the wrong kind of saddle valve on their water line. Make sure you don't have a self-piercing saddle valve. You should have a drill type saddle valve on the cold water line. Reason why, not enough water pressure to the water valve on the fridge. This will let the valve on the fridge hang slightly open which will cause a drip. Check this first. You will find info on this in the installation section of your owners manual.

disconnect the power wires from the valve, if it still fills with water, I would say you have a stuck valve. just because its new, doesnt mean its going to work.
