    make and model is hoover hnmf 2605a l-80 as far as im aware this model doesnt have a thermostate just a sensor and a circuit board

  • darron thomson Jan 05, 2009

    im hoping its just the sensor on espares.com its £30 for model hnmf 2605a l-80 but on the hover website its only £8 for model hnmf 2605a so im not sure if that would be the right part but thank you for trying :)

This would in all likelihood mean you have a bad thermostat, usually located right behind the knob which goes to off. Send model # from tag on fridge for part lookup.

    Sorry, I cannot find lookup info on this model. Either the sensor or board is bad; hope you find a lookup source! Hope this helps!

    Sorry we don't have more info on that here in the states. For L8 it may be worth trying the sensor first!

My Samsung RL39WBMS fridge on m fridge freezer keeps freezing food. Why is this happening all the time and how can I prevent it?


maybe the fridge is set on a colder setting and if that's not it then stick it on the lower shelves and that might help from not freezing because are fridge is the same way when it is stuck by the coolant fan

What causes food to freeze in the bottom of the refrigerator & meat & cheese tray


See if there is a temperature setting on the side of the drawer. Mine has a small lever that opens a hole to the freezer to keep that drawer colder. If it's opened too far the food will freeze.

Fridge keeps freezing food


I have a 6 year old Kenmore Elite top freezer.. I have been dissapointed from day one with this fridge.. the fridge has air vents all over the inside of the fridge. We find that if one of these vents have anything in front of it that something somewhere else in the fridge will freeze. Its very frustrating.. I find that I loose allot of fridge space because I am always juggling space to make sure that these vents are always open... very bad design.. sounded like a good idea at the time.. but never again..

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

Freezer on refrigerator continually runs. GE refrigerator is 20 yrs old. The refrigerator part cools fine. The top freezer is continually running, is also freezing well. Is this a sign that the freezer is...


well, if its 20 years old, and still cooling NORMAL in both the freezer and fresh food, with the controls at normal middle settings. then no, you dont need repairs. if temps are a little warmer, or even a little colder than normal, or in order to keep it at a normal temperature, you have to adjust the controls to a colder setting, then you might need a repair.

if it is cooling ok, and running more, the tradeoff of running longer, is its drawing less power than it used to when it ran "normally" so the trade off is about equal. factors that can make it run longer, is it near a heat source, is it sitting in the sun most of the day, is there not much food inside, is it being opened frequently, is it near the stove, are the doors sealing good, all four sides of both should be contacting the face of the fridge, are there any tears, rips or gaps in the door seals, i could go on.

Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. (cold Control). It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually and will cause the fridge to get colder and freeze food. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge (it is the control that has wires, the other is the damper). Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Food is freezing


usually there is an adjustment at the back for the difference between the fridge and freezer compartment. Often is just a vane that blocks freezer air, too much air would freeze the food. Normally you set the fridge thermostat for a normal food temp, then adjust the air to keep the food warmer than the freezer.

GE Frigerator has intermittant Freezing


It sounds like the defrost heater is burned out. Remove the inside back cover in the freezer to see if the coils are frozen up. If so, more than likely your defrost heater has bit the dust. It is located at the bottom of the inside coil of the freezer.

Also, you could be have a clogged condensor coil. It is located on the out side back of the Fridge. You need to remove the panel from the lower part of the fridge and do a thorugh cleaning.
