Hoover frost free Fridge Freezer ( Hcf6200a ) Not Freezin??

Firstly the appliance belong to my Mother, I live many miles away.

Fridge freezer is only a year old. Never had a problem with it before. Green light showing to indicate its on. In the last few days the 4 Drawer freezer section has stopped freezing. There is dial to adjust temp. Goes from 1 -5. Currently on 4. (She has had a very cold spell of weather were she lives...don't know if this is significant) The fridge section is working fine.

many thanks Ian

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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 can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Most likely reason is fridge evaporator sensor faulty. The sensor is screwed to the back wall of the fridge behind bracket next to light and has a green band near the end . The sensor come as a repair kit (part no. 7323301). Just follow instructions in the packet.It is quite straight forward

I have a Hoover upright fridge freezer which is not cooling in either fridge or freezer unit, the thermostat control does not click when turned up or down. the appliance is 4.5 years old. model no....


IF THIS IS FROST FREE IT DOES NOT USE THERMOSTAT BUT A CONTROL BOARD. LISTEN TO COMPRESSOR ,IF RUNNING THEN GAS IS LOW(R600a) LOOK FOR YELLOW TRIANGLE ON COMPRESSOR. IF IT RUNS TOO LONG LIKE THIS COMPRESSOR WILL RUN BUT NOT PUSH. ONLY WAY TO TELL IS TO PAY FOR AN ENGINEER TO COME,FIT A VALVE AND CHECK IT. JON THE FRIDGE DOC.

My frost free fridge freezer is too cold and freezing the food in the bottom drawer there is some ice around the bottom drawer


You may have an issue with the temperature control assembly. Check the temperature settings (ideally at "one-half way" for both fresh food and freezer compartments).

Contact an appliance service company.
