Re: HOOVER HNMF2605A FRIDGE\FREEZER
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?

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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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...
