Hiya,
Can you post them model number of the appliance please?

Thanks

Hiya,
OK, there's no machine with the model BE40 listed.
Are you sure it's not BWE40?

Thanks

yOU ARE CORRECT BWE 40

Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

Sorry for the delay, I had to check a few things before posting.

I have bad news for you.

The only sensor you can change on this machine is the air sensor.
It's inside the compartment, at the bottom on the sloping panel.
There's a cover you removed to get to it.

Unfortunately, this sensor generates the E1 error.

The sensor that generates the E2 error is the defrost sensor.
This is foamed in and cannot be changed.

There's a note in the service manual for engineers to report back to the head office when they come across E2 errors.
Obviously, with Baumatic having gone bust, this isn't possible.

If the machine is still under warranty, Hoover have bought out the Baumatic name. It may be worth contacting them.

If out of warranty, the only way you would get to the sensor is to cut out the foam on the rear of the appliance to get to the evaporator plate and the sensor will be attached there.
If you can then identify the sensor you could change it and then, somehow, restore the foam on the rear of the machine.

I'm sorry, but as it stands, your machine isn't repairable.

Check it out, see what you find and get back to me.

Hope this helps
Thanks

Thanks


 


As you say its bad news. The machine appears to be cooling but not very well. I bought the sensor from buying spares who said it was the sensor in the cabinet that is faulty. not to worry


 


Thanks again

Hiya,
You could try changing it, seeing as you've got the sensor (unless you are returning it), but E2 is definitely listed as a defrost sensor fault, E1 as the air temperature sensor.

It should cool down properly but when it goes into defrost mode, it may not come out of it quickly enough, leading to the interior warming up too much before it begins cooling again.

Good luck with it,
Hope this helped
Thanks
