    hi, my mother in-law who is in her late seventies has a two year old hoover fridge freezer- model # HNMF2605A-80 or HNMF2605AL80- which is freezing all the time. My first thought is the stat, but are there two ( freezer or fridge ? ). Then how hard are they to replace.

Main stat? what is a main stat?... do you mean thermostat?...that is the thing that controls the compressor to stop if its already cold inside the compartment. or your compressor could have been hot wired already. has anyone repaired your ref before?

    you could have replaced it with a freezer thermostat. they do have different setting of temperature or you could have not put the sensor on its right location in order to detect the temperature of the compartment. the thermostat would not cut off if its not sensing the coldness of the room. look closely where the sensors are on the old thermostat. check also the thermostat if that is for a refigerator and not for a freezer. and also, please check your seeting on the new thermostat, you could have set it too low also then it would not cut off also.

Whirlpool top freezer 18c.ft w/ icemaker: freezer works fine. fridge does not cool below 56 degrees. vacuumed dust from bottom, turned entire unit off and restarted but still not working, in back of


i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

Samsung Fridge Freezer (Freezer on top) Model SR-52NXA Freezer is cold but fridge is not cooling ?


remove evrything from bottom of freezer. take out the shelves . You will see a panel on the back of the unit with screws holding it on take these off . under it is the freezer exchange coils they got froze up,
and frosted full so now no air is circulated between the cabintes, refridge and freezer do not use any sharp object to clear it use a towel and blow dryer to thaw it even a spray bottle with warm water, but don't pick at it!!!! you can puncture the coils . take your time and you will save your unit. also while your at it pull it away from the wall remove that small panel from the back, and the grill from the front and with your long reach nozzle vacuum the heat ex changer coils under the unit. put back together carefully and it will run for a while longer i have one that is a 72 model still runs great Oh any change you find is mine!

Why does the fridge part of my zanussi freezone fridge/freezer, keep freezing the food?


Hi,the problem you are encountering is as a result of the fact that the thermostat which regulates the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer is bad hence there is no regulation of the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer section, hence the food in the fridge freezes up.

The solution is to replace the thermostat of the unit,here is how you go about it;

1.You have to disconnect the fridge from the power source.
2.Locate the thermostat at the bottom of the unit,at the top left corner above the condenser.
3.Now you need to locate the wire ends or wire harness and unplug them.
4.Replace the thermostat,reconnect it back,put the back cover back and you have completed the job.

Take care of yourself

How do you turn off freezer,refrig. is a side by side with a lower freezer that pulls out. Recently moved and freezer door broke and need to use just the refrig.


I don't believe you can turn off the frezzer section because most if not all frezzer/fridge units use the frezzer section to cool the fridge side!!!! that's just how they are designed.

Hotpoint ffa97p - the fridge is too cold and not responding to temperature changing


I'm assuming you're meaning that you reset the "cold control" in the refrigerator area and it is not responding. Try resetting the T stat in the freezer to between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 and see if the unit continues to run on. If I have this the other way around, set the "cold control" the same as the T stat. The "cold control" is just a flapper door, it doesn't control the compressor only the T stat in the freezer does..
If the T stat is set as I said and the unit just keeps on running and never shuts down except to defrost, the T stat is bad and needs replaced.
There is a chance that the flapper door in the "cold control" is stuck wide open. Removing the cover and inspecting it might tell you if that's happening.

The fridge part of my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything,


Hello

I have the same problem and have talked to the manufacturer. They said to turn off the appliance for 24 hours then it should be good as new when you switch it back on. Obviously you'll have to find somewhere for your freezer contents. I'm going to try this myself tonight.

Fridge Reboot!

Freezer and fresh food compartment are warm.


The fridge thermostat is faulty and not cutting in at the required temperature. Fridge stats are not easy to test, so the best way is to bypass the stat to see if the compressor starts. To bypass the stat first unplug the appliance and remove the stat housing from inside the fridge compartment, once you have removed the housing you will see the stat inside. Some stats have 2 terminals some have 3, whatever yours has you will need to connect the compressor wire ( Black) to the live wire (Red or White). When you have bypassed the stat plug the appliance back in and switch on, if the fridge starts up and runs ok you will need to purchase a new stat.

Freezing in Fridge


Does the compressor run continually? Will it turn off when the thermostat is turned all the way down?. If it runs all the time it is possible the defrost timer is not working. It is located under the unit where the water tray is. Along one side or even at the front there will be a black plastic box with a shaft coming out that with a flat tip screw driver can be turned only one direction. Try turning it slowly to see if the compressor shuts off. Also mark the shafts position and see if it has changed after a few hours. It should. If not it is bad. If the unit doesn't shut off when the thermostat is lowered all the way, it could be the problem.... Start with the defrost timer first...
