Hi ive hoover hrfa54w fridge freezer just over a year old. Ive noticed freezer is starting to defrost sometimes the freeze again....its in a holiday cottage so often in a very cold ambient temperatur


Ambient temp will cause the thermostat some confusion. There's probably nothing wrong with the fridge, my freezer doesn't like being in the outhouse. Only alternative is only switch on when you are there or move it to a cupboard where you could put a low output source of heat just enough to keep it happy. Then get it out when you are there?

GE side x side refridgerator temperature is


unlikely both temp.sensors will be faulty at the same time. Notice how different the internal temps.are compared to the acurate one you are measuring it against. Almost certain board is defective because incorrect info in the processor will tell the compressor/s to switch off before time.(hence not correct temp. all the time.) Suggest replacement.I normally replace probes as well to eliminate problems later..

GE refrigerator 12 years old runs continuously, exterior warm


Probably not. Newer (and I mean under 15 years old or so) refrigerators may run more % of the time than older units, but are using far less energy while running, so total energy consumption is actually less. The newest energy star models often use less electricity than a single incandescent light bulb uses if left on 24/7. If your run times are noticeably longer just recently, and there have been no other significant changes to account for it (like more and / or longer door openings or a warmer ambient temp., etc.) then you may have caught a defrost problem or bad door gasket problem early. The warm temp on the outer case near the freezer is to prevent condensation from forming in those areas, and is normal. (as a matter of fact, older refrigs often used low wattage electric heaters for that task, almost all newer units use waste heat from the cooling system to accomplish that task) Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my overall score. Thanks.

Fridge & Freezer not cooling


i think you have a bad compressor pull it out and take off the back panel and feel the compressor if it is hot and making a bad sound it might be an over load relay

Fridge wont get cold and freezer gets cold then gets warm


Sounds like to me you have a defrost issue. If your fridge is only 2 months old don't sweat it and call out a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. to fix the problem. And sorry to say age does not matter with fridges any more. The good ole days of fridges lasting 20 years is over now it's 12 years if your lucky.

Jenn Aire side by side - freezer and fridge not working


Yes the compressor could be stuck but it's also possible the PTC could have failed - each will show the same symptoms. If you're a tech you can check the compressor or you can just replace the PTC also known as "relay". Part # 12002784 should run somewhere around $60.

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling


we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone
