    Hello,
    I have a Hoover HCA390FFK Fridge/Freezer and the fridge gets too cold, i.e makes coke cans explode as content is frozen.

    I have replaced the thermostat with another fridge thermostat for this model, and placed the probe into the identical place as previous, covering it then with foam spray and this has not worked, so asking, do I need to replace now the PCB or the rotating control knob , or both !

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.

Fridge Reboot!

I tried solution 1 without success, so I resorted to switching the whole unit off at night and on in the day to stop it freezing up. After about a week of doing this it started working properly again. One month later it is still OK

The Hoover (Candy) Fridge Freezer that i looked at today had a sensor on the evaporator that appears to be the only one in the unit, if this is so the fault can only be either this sensor that has 2 white wires + 2 blue wires, or the control module on the front of the unit....

With the unit switched off , remove control panel at the top. check circuit of the blue wires and white wires of 5 pin plug..should be a circuit through if the unit is cold...white will be open circuit if unit is room temp.

this will probably point to the control module being faulty.

HOOVER CLASS A FROSTFREE FREEZE HNMF 2805A L-80 FREEZER IS WORKING BUT FRIDGE INSIDE IS COVERED WITH SHEET OF ICE AND BLOCK OF ICE AT BACK FOOD AND LIQUIDS ARE FREEZING HAVE ALREADY TRIED TURNING DOWN...


I had same problem. Needed a new thermostat. Lasted about 18 months, then needed to replace fridge. Ice build up is between the inside and outside layers of the fridge as well. May just be more economical to replace. Cheers

Fridge freezing up


Check the fridge sensor. On my Hoover HNMF2805AL80 f/f, first I replaced control module - still freezing.
Have just replaced cheap fridge temperature sensor. Part No. 97061619. Trouble is you have to cut into insulation at back of fridge to replace. I just plugged in sensor & placed inside fridge at back at the bottom - so far so good, only lettuce freezing now, everything else v. cold but not frozen. :)

Fridge is freezing food


I have had the same issue with thick frost/ice at the back of my Fridge and almost called an engineer and considered replacing it.. BUT you don't want to so that: Do this:

1. Take freezer draws out and empty fridge so it is lighter and easier to move Fridge Freezer out
2. Chuck some warm soapy water down the drainage hole in back of fridge to ensure it is not blocked
3. Pull the plug. Leave it off for 5-10 mins.
4. Plug it in, reload her
5. Next morning.. perfect all back to normal

I think the unplugging just resets the thermostat and gets your machine back to life.

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.


If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Fridge compartment is freezing in my Hoover upright fridge-freezer. Any advice greatfully recieved. Thanks, Owen


have you tried turning down the temperature for the freezer or fridge? The fridge gets its cold power from the freezer, it is siphoned into it. So turning down the freezer temp may help but a sensor may have gone bad in the motherboard of your freezer and not closing off the vent into your fridge

FRIDGE COMPARTMENT FREEZING


try this,make sure you dont have anything blocking your blower in the freezer.if that is okay if you have seperate controls for the freezer and the fridge,try setting the frige setting lower and the freezer higher,this makes the blower work more in the freezer.hope it helps.

FRIDGE COMPARTMENT FREEZING


i had the same problem the sensor starts at the back of the pcb and snakes its way dow the back of the fridge into the freezer conpartment i ordered a new sensor thinking it was a temp sensor but turned out to be a defrost sensor compleat and utter hassel to fit due to the expanding foam i had to eventualy cut the block off that conects to the pcb and then reconecting it once i got the cable through the foam first 2 days seamed to work fine while there was nothing in it as soon as i put food in it again the fridge started to freeze everything again then about a week later it still ices up at the back the fridge but doesnt seam to freeze the food so much now so still unsure about it all
btw it was the exact same model and before i changed the sensor the light and the super light used to flash on and off
