SOURCE: which light bulb can I use Hoover Contour

Use a refrigerator rated bulb. If you go to a Harry's Homeower store look in the bulb section or in the appliance section take to old bulb with you to compare.

SOURCE: hoover contour fridge leaking

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.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: Hoover Contour HE423UFL fridge freezer continually frosts over?

I am on my fourth timer for this problem. Seems to fix the problem each time. You must remove the big chunk of ice covering the drain hole before you operate the fridge with the new timer. The contacts in the timer get burnt due to arcing inside the switch. The heating element seems to always work ok, but if the element is no good the fridge will not defrost.

I have a Hoover Contour HE430TF fridge leaking water to the bottom of the crisper. There is no internal drain hole. Hoover has no record of a 20 yr old model & is no help. How can I fix the problem?


it's not leaking water.. it's condensation running down the back of the fridge.. normally this is channelled into a hole that has a tube on it, that allows the water to go to a drip tray on top of the (warm) compressor, which then evaporates it.. Please re-check for a "V" shape moulding on the back if the fridge.. there SHOULD be a hole smack bang in the middle, which may have clogged up in the pipe with gunk, causing water to refreeze and block the hole completely.. best to do a full empty and clean, and use a chopstick, or better still a cheap pipe-brush from the £ shop, to clear that tube (about 1/2 inch diameter, or maybe less.)

How do I change the light bulb in a Hoover contour HE 365UF. I can't see how to take the cover off at the back of the fridge


To change the light bulb, you need to unhook the bulbous plastic cover at the top back of the fridge. You'll notice it has two oval holes on the sides. On both the left and right, place your fingers on the vertical strips of the cover directly behind these oval holes, and press inward to release the catch. At the same time, pull down and the back of the cover will swing down, revealing the light bulb.

Same thing happened after a storm to ours. On the back of the fridge next to the motor to the left (you have to remove the panel) there was a red dial inserted. We turned it and the fridge worked again. (well one day so far).

How to replace 1998 Ford Contour headlights (with diagram)


Step 1
Remove your Contour's front grille. You can do this by raising the hood and removing two screws that are located on top of the grille.

Step 2 Remove the headlight assembly. The headlight assembly is held into the front of your Contour by three screws. Two screws will be located on top of the assembly, and one on the bottom.

Step 3 Replace the headlight assembly, if necessary. If you are only changing individual bulbs, make sure you replace the correct bulbs. Each assembly holds three light bulbs, including the bright, dim and turn signal bulbs.

Step4 Replace the headlight assembly and reattach the three screws to hold it in place.

Step5 Replace the front grille of your Contour and the two screws that hold it onto the front of the car.


  • It is usually a good idea to replace bulbs together (in pairs). This will allow the bulbs to wear at the same rate.
  • If you choose to replace only the individual light bulbs, do not touch the new light bulbs. The contact of your skin on the bulbs will cause the light bulbs to burn out much sooner.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
