Water Dispenser Keeps Running

4 posts in this topic

INFO: Hotpoint Fridge Model CSX27DLR

PROBLEM: Water dispenser keeps running.

For 14 years this giant Hotpoint side-by-side has run faithfully. Until the other night when I pushed in the water dispenser in the freezer and felt a little pop. The water wouldn't shut off. Had to turn off the supply valve.

I'm thinking there's a spring that returns the supply valve to the closed position and that it broke. But I couldn't find the part and even if I did, I'm not absolutely sure that is the problem.

So, a few questions, learned ones:

1) How do I access the dispenser mechanism? There's a panel on the inside of the door, which covers the mechanism. How do I get it off without cracking it?

2) Once I access the dispenser, what am I looking for? Do I replace just a spring (if that's broken) or is it a complete unit?

3) What's the part number?

4) What's the beer rating on this one?

May a thousand cranes bring blessings on you.

I'm thinking item 72

Perhaps you are right, great teacher. But unless I know how to remove part 27, no way I can figure out if item 72 is what I need.

How is the removal done?

Remove item 53 by removing item 54.  This gains substantial access. The rest is visually discernible.
