Good day,

My name is ***** ***** Support Technician with over 10 years of experience, and I will assist you with your appliance today. I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Hoover  appliance. I understand how frustrating that can be. Hope we can resolve it quickly.

Please let me know the error code that is flashing or could you please send an image here for me to see?

Error code is e 10
Expert:  Mace2012 replied 16 days ago.

Thank you. Please bear with me whilst looking this for you.

Expert:  Mace2012 replied 16 days ago.

Thank you for waiting, your patience is appreciated.

E10  means fridge compartment is not cold enough. Likely to occur after long term power failure and or hot food has been left in the fridge.

Please try this to solve the issue:

1. Set the fridge temperature to a colder value or set Super Cool. This should remove the error code once the required temperature has been reached. Keep doors closed to improve time taken to reach the correct temperature.

2. Please empty the location at the front area of air duct channel holes and avoid putting food close to the sensor. If this warning continues an authorised technician needs to be contacted.

Alternatively, please contact 03444 995599 or contact form to book a repair.
