Hoover Fridge Problem

Hoover HCS46 Fridge freezer with chilled pure water filter (normally chilled). motor did seem to be making a bit more noise than usual and basically now the fridge, freezer and chilled water dont work at all. Fridge still powers on, water filter dispenses water but at normal temp and motor sounds like it is getting power but nothing gets cold. None of the pipes coming in/out the motor seem to be cold. Motor is marked with electrolux HYK12AA (R600A). Pretty sure motor is the problem just looking for confirmation. Are these seviceable as it looks like solder connections. approx cost for replacement part +labour.CheersPete

    I am having the exact same problem, did you fix your fridge that time? I know it was years ago but I would appreciate it if you could let me know. Whats a water solenoid valve and is it serviceable?

SOURCE: fridge has stopped working/getting cold

check the relay, the clicking noise is your overload tripping out on overload, the run winding of the compressor are not coming on line, if your relay is good, the ohm out your compressor.

SOURCE: Fridge and Freezer working intermittently; not getting cold and making a vibrating sound

Dave, what you are hearing is the overload kicking out on the compressor. It's one of two things, either the compressor is failing or PTC (overload, relay) is going bad. I haven't seen too many PTC's fail on Frigidaire, but I have seen a lot of compressors failing. Your refrigerator will have a 5 year warranty, parts and labor if the compressor is at fault. You would have to do some tests on the compressor to determine which one is at fault. If you have a clamp on ammeter you can see how many amps the compressor is drawing during start and run. The compressor should have a label on it with the amperage information. You could just replace the PTC, part number 218721119 and see if the problem goes away but you could be throwing away money here if the compressor is the problem. With out being there, my guess would be the compressor itself. Catriver...post back.

We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

Water Dispenser on GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Not Working


When you press the water dispenser button, do you hear a noise like water is trying to come as usual. If so then your problem might be frozen chill water tank or failed chill water valve. If you don't hear the regular noise then the problem might be with the dispenser unit.

Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Hotpiont ffm90 fridge not chilling


hi if the freezer appears to work and the fridge if warm,the problem is that the freezer is over frozen and blocking the vents which send cold air into the fridge when required,and the noise is the fan hitting the the ice build up,defrost (switch off)your applinace for at least 36 hours then switch back on,you will then find after the freezer reaches -12 the fridge will then start to go cold.

Hi Nicky,
We just had the same problem; and we've solved it.
Press the MENU button (4 times) until the Pure Water LED is flashing; then press and hold the SET button down until the screen goes back to the main menu.
