    FIXED... I opened the top panel, and one of the thermostats was not operative. I reseted it and it was working fine after that. regarding the condenser compartment, I think there is no such tnihng on this machine, since the condensed water is going directly to the sink... So, I suppose the machine was just overloaded during the drying proces, so thermostat reacted by turning of the heater.

We have a Maytag refrigerator 1 year old MFF2558VEW2 bottom freezer that leaks a small pool of water each day onto our floor. Also, there is ice buildup on the floor of the interior of the freezer as well...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This sounds like the freezer compartment drain is clogged. Here is how to make sure it is clear:
1. Unplug the unit and remove freezer contents
2. Pull the unit away from the wall for rear panel access.
3. Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (It take this long to clear the ice in the compartment drain funnel!)
4. While your doing a manual defrosting session with the fan... open the back of the unit by removing the fiberboard cover. Then clean the condenser coils and fan. After the fan and coil cleaning... use a wet or dry vacuum or rags to empty the drip pan contents. (These can get really nasty) Make sure to clean the very end of the compartment drain tube. Dry icky debris from the drip pan and the water / dirt can cake on the very end of the drain tube and clog it.
5. Near the end of the 2 hour manual defrosting period switch the vacuum to exhaust and force air through the compartment drain tube. This will float out and up any debris that was in the freezer compartment drain funnel.
6. Reinstall the rear fiberboard cover.
7, Return the unit to normal service.
8. Before you reload the freezer depress the door / light switch and make sure the evaporator fan is running with the door switch depressed. Evap and condenser fans run anytime the compressor runs.

After a couple of days watch for signs of ice build up again. If it starts the icing routine again you most likely have an automatic defrosting problem. (Repair of the Automatic Defrosting System may be under the limited / extended warranty depending on your coverage plan)

This is who answered your questions:

I would appreciate any future feedback.

The fridge is working whit out stop

If the unit is running all the time and is not freezing everything then open the back fiberboard panel and clean out the coils in the back. Check to make sure the condenser cooling fan is running also. If the compressor is running and the condenser fan is not running there is a problem with the condenser fan. The compressor, condenser and evaporator fans all should be running at the same time. the condenser fan can be stuck... have dry bearings... of simply has failed. Before removing the back cover... touch the chassis were the doors close... it should be warm but not VERY warm to the touch. If it is VERY warm to the touch... for sure you have a problem with the condensor fan.

Since you did not say anything other than the fridge is working whit out stop, I have to assume at this point that the evaporator fan is running in the freezer compartment just fine.

I really need to know:
1. Is there ice in the back of the freezer compartment?
2. Is the evaporator fan running?
3. Is the condenser fan running?
4. Are the condenser coils clean?

One of the above has a problem... you just need to identify which one.

I have the Candy C1C60, the "clean Filter light will not go off

I had the same problem, cleaned the whole machine until it was back to show room condition but the light was still on. Turns out my heater had packed in, bought a replacement and fitted it and it down the trick (no light and drying clothes)

Hoover nextra mega load 7.5kg HNC175 condenser dryer has 1)stopped heating, the drum still goes round and cold air goes in. 2) The filter care light is on, i have taken out the condenser assembly and...

On the rear there is a Heating element hidden under the silver cover, on the top of this unit, there is 2 thermostat's, one is a auto-reset set (On the left) around the 100'c mark and one is a single use thermal trip set at 130'c (on the right, also denoted by a blue spot), the idea is when the heater reaches 100'c is powers off until the air temp drops, once it drops the auto-reset kicks in and forses the heater to power back up, however, in the intrests of safety, if the auto reset fails to power down then the 130'c thermostat will permenently remove power from the heater and will illuminate the filter care light, the only way to restore the power to the heater is to either have an engineer replace the whole heater as Hoover/candy do not sell on the thermal cut out to anyone.

you can usually find the heater unit for £30-40, an engineer may charge upto £140 for the same part and fitting.

Freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid

Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.

Candy CMD146 Washer/Dryer

This machine has selfcondensing system. The condense water is beeing pumped out with the cooling water. The watertap MUST be open during drying. It also may be caused of overloading. The most W/D combos is just able to dry just the half of a full load in one time.
