Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge freezer won't work after moving overseas

Our hoover fridge freezer has spent 12 weeks in sea freight container moving from UK to New Zealand.  We plugged it in on arrival and it chugs away as normal but after being on all night was not remotely cool although the elements at the back were very hot.  Tried turning off and leaving for a few days but still no different.  In the hoover is not a common make over here we don't know if its something simple to fix or whether it will cost us more to get it checked out and possibly replace parts than to buy a new fridge freezer.  Any suggestions?  Could the coolant have run out/evaporated in transit?  The front feet have been smashed off somehow too so we don't know if it has had a fall on its travels.  
ANy advice much appreciated.

It may need to be re-gassed and repaired. But before you do its plainly been damaged in transit so you will be able make a claim agianst the transport company. Don't be shy call them and ask how to make a claim.

Do you need a import permit for a rifle scope to new zealand?


If you contact your local import customs or a freight forwarder, they can advise you on the proper shipping documents needed

A forwarder will also expedite the release process and do all the leg work for you to simply pick it up from them.

Our 4 year old MFI2568AES is freezing everything in the food storge area


It is very possible that the thermistor located inside and behind the fresh food sections upper light housing. If adjusting temperatures does no cause change then this part is high on the list of possibilities. The part is about $5.00 and I think the freight will be more. You can pick it up local. Or buy from one of our sponsors. If you would like the service manual please let me know, Sea Breeze

The fridge part of my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything,


Hello

I have the same problem and have talked to the manufacturer. They said to turn off the appliance for 24 hours then it should be good as new when you switch it back on. Obviously you'll have to find somewhere for your freezer contents. I'm going to try this myself tonight.
