Gas type is on rating label and is probably r600a (butane)
whether it can be repaired if there is a leak, depends quite simply, where the leak is.
what makes you think there is a leak??

Hi, i have a Hoover HCA 36 FT ALU fridge freezer, a few weeks back it started making a wheird high pitched gurgling noise, a yesterday it stopped working. If i switch it off at the mains and then back on...


Sounds like a capillary issue. The capillary tube is the metering device for the refrigerant.... a long tube with the bore measured in thousandths of an inch. If it has become restricted, it could well be overloading the compressor on start-up if the pressures on the high and low sides of the system do not equalize. In my experience, this is quite common on systems utilizing R*134A, especially if the compressor has overheated previously. You may well need the services of a refrigeration technician.

Build up of ice in bottom of freezer compartment


During the defrost cycle heaters in the wall of the freezer are turned on to melt the frost build up. This melted frost "water" is supposed to run out a drain in the bottom of the freezer and collect in a pan under the refrigerator/freezer where it will eventually evaporate. If this drain is blocked it will cause a lot of water to collect in the bottom of the freezer and that water will eventually turn back into ice. I recommend defrosting the freezer manually, removing all the ice/water buildup in the bottom, and trying to unplug the drain line to the pan underneath. Also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it could be letting a lot of moisture enter the freezer which would lead to more frost buildup and more water during the defrost cycle.

FRIDGE COMPARTMENT NOT COLD ENOUGH.


If you have never defrosted it before, leave it off for a lot lot longer, doors open in a warm area. Is the fan working when you close the door ?(or hold the door switch in), if not, there could be a problem with the condenser fan), otherwise 90% of the time, they are frosted up internally, and because of good insulation, need time to "warm up" inside, in order to defrost

Hi Nicky,
We just had the same problem; and we've solved it.
Press the MENU button (4 times) until the Pure Water LED is flashing; then press and hold the SET button down until the screen goes back to the main menu.

Tempratue problem


air from the freezer fan, means the sensor- temperature control circuit is working right, it is trying to cool
there has likely been a leak from the system and there is not enough coolant left for the compressor to compress anything.

a GOOD repair guy
will have a pressure pump/gauge and test for leaks through the fill nozzle, repair them and regas the fridge (provided it is a non-CFC r12 fridge) without removing it from the home,

a not-so-good repair guy
will not
