Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fridge freezes everything!

I have a Hotpoint side by side model number HSS251FMC, Serial number FD246483
The fridge is freezing everything in it. The freezer is freezing OK but when the heater defrosts it drips everywhere and then freezes the drips, big mess.

Tried all the obvious things like unblocking the drain, rebooting the unit etc etc.

I have tried changing the mother board part number  WR55X10552
and I have also changed the Thermostat DEF part number WR50X10068

The only part not changed yet is the Temp Sensor part number WR55X10025, I have this part so if I need to change it I can.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks, Ric.

How to tell weather my second hand tricity bendix eco plus 50:50 is going to refridgerate and freeze my food left it stand upright for 4 hours before switching on ?


Hi, you should see ice forming in the freezer compartment after an hour or two and if you have a fridge temp gauge it should show the temp of your fridge .

Need to know the model number to see if the unit has a
circuit board thermostat or a mechanical thermostat.
If it's mechanical then the thermostat is bad and needs to
be replaced.
If it's electronic then either a relay on the board needs replaced
or the entire board. Which isn't cheap.

Hotpoint mistral plus


Sounds like a faulty thermostat, although fast freeze usually bypasses the stat so should then get to temperature. If the compressor and condenser are getting very hot and all is clean, check there isn't a condenser fan stuck underneath that is seized. If not, may have had a bit of a refrigerant leak and sucked a bit of air into the system. Call an engineer

Apparently there is a problem with Beko refrigeration manufactured between 2000/2006. Please confirm model number in question.


From Beko:-

"The BEKO frost free fridge freezer models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. These have a serial number that begins with either 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06. and this information can be found on a label inside the fridge. Beko is making a free of charge modification to all affected models, this modification takes approximately 30mins.

Other Beko branded models and all Beko frost free fridge freezers manufactured after this date are unaffected.

Affected model numbers:

    • CA 5411 FFS/FFW/FFX
    • CA 7014 FFX
    • CA 7015 FFW/FFS/FFX
    • CDA 539 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 543 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 645 FW
    • CDA 647 FS/FW
    • CDA 648 FS/FW
    • CDA 653 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 659 FS
    • CDA 751 FS/FX
    • CDA 752 FS/FW/FX
    • CS 460 FF/FFS/FFW/FFSD
    • CS 461 FFW/FFS
    • CSA 4706 FFX
    • CSB 4606 FFSD/FFS/FFW"

If you find that your model is listed above and is in the correct model year range then you need to click here for further guidance. There is also a freephone number, but it's swamped by callers. Even if you get through you will receive exactly the same advice as you would from the website links.

My Maytag MSD2756GE is not cooling on the regrigerator side but is freezing ok. What could be the problem?


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

you should try turning the fridge down. The higher the # the higher the setting, lower # is warmer setting.
