Bocsh 1400 express f21 keeps flashing


Either the motor or the main control board (could be both) has a serious problem.
However, it can also occur if there are spikes in your power lines and it locks up the control board.
Try clearing the error code and resetting the control board.
To reset:

TTo Turn the knob to the off position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.
Wait till the start light flashes.
Wait 2 seconds.
Press and hold the spin button.
While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.
Release the spin button.
This should clear the error code table.
Turn the knob to off.
Turn on and try the machine again.
Try this a couple times.
It should clear the fault code but if the control board or motor is still faulty, it will see it and show the code again.

My refrigerator only kicks on when I adjust the temp knob.


You need to replace ( or have it replaced ) , the thermostat . The piece the knob pushes onto . The liquid is seperated inside the thermostat cap tube , causing the internal contact not to close . Also , a tap on the knob , will start the refrig , until it reaches temp , but then may not restart until another tap . Replace it and that will solve the problem .

The refrigerator keeps going into defrost mode and staying there. Moving the thermostat to off and back on again resets it and the compressor restarts.


You need to replace the thermostat . When the thermostat temperature is reached , it will cycle the compressor off . When time to come back on , it will not start . Instead of turning the thermostat off , try tapping on the thermostat knob . If the unit starts , this will confirm that the thermostat needs replaced .

Kenmore fridge stopped cooling


sounds like its freezing up on you. check the drain outlet and make sure that its clear. also i would replace the defrost timer on this unit because its suppose to bring on the heaterfs to melyt the ice so thaat yoiu don't have to. they are around 30 mdollars at the appliancew repair store and all you need is the model number and serial number for the uit. after you get it it's either on the very top of the refrigerator section or in the very back. It has 4 wires going to it. good luck.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

Kenmore 106.7687461 about once a week refrig stop, light still on?


Try to locate the defrost timer. It sounds like the defrost timer has an intermittent fault and is not operating as it should. It should be situated in the compressor compartment. It is a white or black box with a little knob protruding from it. When the motor stops again, try turning the little knob on the timer untill you hear a loud click. The motor should then start running again. If it does, the timer is faulty. Replace it.
