Question about Hoover HCA351K Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer will not work due to out side teperature being low

The freezer is in my garage utility room and the temperature is about 5deg
I have moved it back into the main kitchen and it is now working fine.
Is there an Ambiant temp switch to adjust so that I can move it back?

Sorry, not doable. Temp in garage below 50 degrees will cause problems with any domestic fridge or freezer. The soda machines you see outside actually have heaters in them so they can work in the winter. Hope this helps!

I have a Liebherr CUPsl 3221 freestanding fridge/freezer. Does any one know what are the approximate temperatures in the freezer area at different settings? (1-7, manual button in the refrigerator are


Their are no direct connections between the number and the temperatures on refrigerators and freezers. Is is based on surrounding temperature, in the room. That is the reason they used numbers and do not mark teperatures.

Can a refrigerator be placed in a garage that houses the electric furnace?


Hi, all fridge freezers work on ambient room temperatures, ie room temperature. Also it will depend on the classification of your fridge freezer. On a normal classification fr/free 70 degrees should be a constant maximum. On a sub normal classification room temp should not exceed 50 degrees. on a sub tropical room temp can be pretty much as warm as you like. On the rating plate inside your fridge freezer two small letters exist (N) normal. (SN) sub normal. (ST) sub tropical. Most fridges will work for a while in the wrong temp but will work too hard and pack up

Freezer won't work in garage in cold weather


Modern fridge/freezers are built to automatically defrost themselves. To do this they require that the room temperature is well above freezing to allow the defrost to take place. If you site the freezer in too cold an environment it is unable to defrost itself and will eventually stop working. It sounds strange but if it is too cold the freezer cannot work. The solution is to buy and fridge/freezer that does not automatically defrost itself if you want it to work in a cold environment.

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer


Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
