Re: candy cpca240ffk compressor running.

I don't have a diagram but im familiar with that problem its either a bad relay on the compressor a bad thermal over load in the relay box mounted on the compressor terminals or a bad compressor don't know where you live im in usa here you can get an after market relay with a start capacitor and if its not the compressor will fix the problem

Candy Fridge Freezer CVC 324AK approximately 5 years old which is running all of the time and freezing up

If your fridge is running all the time and you are not hearing it shut off you must first of all check on the thermostat, the lines to the thermocouple. Then start the fridge and check if the compressor stops, if not shut off and reduce the settings on the thermostat. if the fault recurrs then try to change the thermostat and see byt setting the thermostat low if the compressor shuts off. Also check for the wiring to the timer and the allied circuits. I amsure you can get to this fault, take help if it is beyond you, but keep this advice in mind. Good day

Candy fridge freezer

it should come back after about 20 mins only and should cool back after about 10 mins.

i'm afraid the buzzing sound could be coming from your compressor which can not start. the over current relay is tripping off after 20 seconds to prevent the compressor from burning up.
i suggest to unplug the ref, let it cool for 1 day, re plug it after a day and observe the compressor if would run.

if the buzzing sound is still there and the unit is no longer cooling, then the compressor is not running.
check the relay of the compressor. it could just be the relay.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Frost free fridge

Check and set both temperature adjustments, one for freezer should be no more than 1/2 and the refrigerator also as a starting point.

Lights out & fridge freezing after switching off and moving it

a servicing expert told me when bulb goes can cause a failure on control board. others confirmed control board failure occurs often and the only other part that goes is the compressor (and thats really expensive to repair!). control boards can be fitted yourself - mine cost about £50.
