Question about Candy CPCA270FFK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Candy CFC 290 FF

Hello

My firdge freezer "super" light is flashing. When I turn up the thermostat to super, even after several hours the light won't stop flashing even though the fridge and freezer are at their correct temperatures. Do i have a problem with the thermostat do you think or maybe the temperature sensor if there is one. I'd like to repair it myself if possible so you advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Rob

Candy frost free freezers have a 'self defrost' mechanism to remove excess ice build up. What happens is the ice gets packed around the heat exchanger in the back of the freezer and it can't self defrost. This is easy to fix but will require the fridge to be left switched off with the door open for a couple of days so all the ice can melt. Make sure you left the appliance off for as long as you can as if there is any ice left the problem will just come back.

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

My Candy fridge freezer CPC240FFK seems to turn itself off - light goes out and no sound. If I turn it up to Super it does work, but the fridge is too cold, and when I turn it down it goes off again. Now...


i recently found out that there is a component in a fidge called a control board this basically tells the fridge what to do i recently had a variety of problems with my candy F/F starting with the interior light not working it turned out to be the CB had this replaced and now working fine i have been told a CB (control board) can pack up from somethng as simple as a light bub blowing so possibly might be your solution all the best

Your appliance needs to have the condenser area cleaned or it is low on freon. Call a repairman to look into it.

Fridge Feezes


My Candy fridge freezer done the same. After a bit of investigation, I found that the little plastic shaft from the front temperature dial that connects to the thermostat has snapped. I merely glued it back together and it worked fine.

In essence, the thermostat was turned on to super all the time, and turning the dial anti-clockwise did nothing as it wasn't connected to the thermostat.

Very flimsy I say.

Hello

Well the sheet of ice was caused by the thermostat failing and causing the fridge to continously run therefore causing the over freezing..

Like a car engine if you leave it running for weeks on end without stopping it probably will burn out...

Or like a horse is you have it working day in day out with out rest it will die..

you compressor on your fridge is no more... it ran and ran and now its all worn out .....

The clicking noise at the back of the fridge is the compressor trying to swtich on but it can't

only a professional can legally change over the compressor
as it is a techincal process recharging the fridge with gas


if you need any other help let us know...

you need a new fridge by the way
