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.

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.)

I have a hoover 505 upside down fridge, it has the motor constantly running and the fridge is not getting cold

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Open the freezer and locate the door / light switch. Depress the light switch plunger / actuator and make sure the light goes off and the evaporator fan comes ON. Light stays on and fan does not run = bad door switch.
Next look for signs of ice build up on the back access panel / evaporator coils. Ice block noted on coils and back access panel = evaporator fan problem or possible door switch problem.
Last open the fiberboard cover on the back of the unit and check for massive amounts of lint on the condenser coils and that the condenser fan is running. Blocked condenser coils or condenser fan not running will cause the chassis to be very warm to hot when touched.

If you do not find anything wrong by performing the steps above:
  • Unplug the unit
  • Remove freezer contents
  • Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours (manual defrost)
  • Tend to the water mess as needed
  • After 2 hours wipe up any residual water and return the unit to normal service
  • Check to see that the evaporator fan is running.
After a 2- 4 days look again for any signs of ice build up on the evaporator coils. If you note ice beginning to build up on the evaporator coils there is a problem with the automatic defrost circuit.
Possible automatic defrost failure causes:
1. Defrost Control
2. Defrost heater
3. Thermistor (if so equipped)
4. Defrost thermostat

That is pretty much it runs all the time but does not cool troubleshooting. You should find something out of the ordinary by following the steps above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Hello, i have a hoover dryer, model 5030D, secondhand, it is just been purchased my us. we put on our first load on and the machine stopped within 15minutes. we noticed then that the machine was...

Hi, if I remember correctly this model originally came with 2 faceplates so the controls can still be easily accessed, when the dryer was installed upside down on a wall. Most dryers can be run upside down, or even on their side as I done in the past with my Hoover 5030D, so the problem would lie elsewhere.

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).

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.

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.
