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.

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: lights stay on in fridge

HI. The door switch will be the culprit here.

The interior light in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, are controlled by a door switch. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

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.

On sub zero 690 like to change bulb in lighted electronic control panel


you will have to remove the light shield, remove the plastic trim that says the model number in front of the light shield, then the 2 screws holding the side cover on the left side of the fridge section. Then the cover will need to be pushed towards the rear of the fridge then tipped out at the front. It has springs holding it in the back.That should access the bulb you need to change

I have a Hoover HE 365uf fridge freezer.It has power to it,the light goes, but the motor is not running.Does this model have a reset switch for the motor somewhere?


:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Have1998f0rd contour back turning lights out. Dont have inside fuse diagram.


If BOTH turn signals are out, it would be a fuse, but if only ONE is out, it's the bulb.

If you need to change the fuse, sometimes the labels are on the fuse box cover. If not, just pull out one at a time until you find one that has a melted element and replace it.

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).

The light bulb needs replacing but..


It would have been really helpful if you could have provided the model number. You can always find it at the back of your freezer. Here are some links to videos which should be useful for you.
