Question about Hoover HCA390FFK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

My Fridge/Freezer is turning itself on and off!!!

This has only just started happening, but the power light is flashing on and off and at the same time you can hear the fridge/freezer turning on and off. If i turn it off at the mains and then switch on again you can hear the motor starting up, but then the flashing and clicking on and off starts to happen again. Help!

I think your motherboard of your fridge is going bad. If that is so, then its better to just get a new fridge than tryin to fix it. the motherboard is expensive and this is the brains of the fridge

Power light flashing on & off


Try to unplug and plug the power cord this may help, flashes is an error code. Try also the defrosting, error codes alarm the owner if there are some abnormal operation int the unit.

Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working


The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working
