Also easy is this to replace - any hints/tips?

Why is my fridge freezing up in my candy fridge freezer


Hello there,
The reason your fridge is freezing up is simply because there is a problem with the defrost unit of the refrigerator. The defrost thermostat simply could have gone bad and therefore is not getting the defrost heater to start work.
Have the defrost thermostat tested and replaced once found faulty.
Hope this was of help to you. All the best Elect_Comp

Either the thermostat is set to high or you need to replace the thermostat.adjust it to 1/2 way position position and if temp is to cold and it doesnt want to switch off, it means the thermostat is faulty.

Fridge and freezer not working, compressor starts but keeps cutting out after about only 5 seconds.noticed compressor very hot(is this normal).


Replace the start relay on the compressor.
Unplug it until you get the part or it will cause the compressor to fail.

Candy CPCA250 GB Freezer feezing but fridge not cold


Hello jonnyclewlow
Welcome,


You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly

This is my first thought

Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.

1. Fresh Food control is set too
warm.
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.

3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.

The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum

Candy frost free freezers have a 'self defrost' mechanism to remove excess ice build up. What happens is the ice gets packed around the heat exchanger in the back of the freezer and it can't self defrost. This is easy to fix but will require the fridge to be left switched off with the door open for a couple of days so all the ice can melt. Make sure you left the appliance off for as long as you can as if there is any ice left the problem will just come back.

Freezing problem


I think you mean that milk freezes, etc.

Probably bad thermocouple. In the refrigerators I'm familiar with, there is a thermocouple thermostat in the freezer. There is no measuring of refrigerator temperature; it just gets a portion of the cold freezer air.

If the thermostat is bad, then ice cream should be rock hard too, for it never quits cooling except on defrost cycle, three times per day.

Hello

Well the sheet of ice was caused by the thermostat failing and causing the fridge to continously run therefore causing the over freezing..

Like a car engine if you leave it running for weeks on end without stopping it probably will burn out...

Or like a horse is you have it working day in day out with out rest it will die..

you compressor on your fridge is no more... it ran and ran and now its all worn out .....

The clicking noise at the back of the fridge is the compressor trying to swtich on but it can't

only a professional can legally change over the compressor
as it is a techincal process recharging the fridge with gas


if you need any other help let us know...

you need a new fridge by the way
