I have a bosch fridge freezer, freezer on the bottom. I bought it a few years ago and I cant find the model on the fridge?! Anyway, the fan is inside the refrigerator in the centre at the top, and its not running anymore. There is a constant pool of water under the veggie rack. How do I open the fan to check it, or what exactly shoud I do? Please help.

Once the fridge is shut OFF for few hours to defrost and then switched ON , if the fridge works with cooling , then the fault is with the AUTO DEFROST TIMER or the circuit -maybe the heater, break in the lines to the timer, heater, the fan.
The build up frost will block the flow of cool air to the fridge from the freezer evaporator.
So remove and check.
The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.
Good day, I don't understand your caption..........
Fan cool fridge working 3years bought new 2days ago...
However, it sounds as if the compressor is trying to start and cannot.
If the machine is under 5 years of age, the compressor is under factory warranty.
There is a relay, capacitor, and overload which are connected to the side of the compressor after removing the back bottom rear cover.
These items could be removed and taken to an appliance parts house, where they would be glad to test them for you. Replace failed parts.
However, if it is under 5 years of age, I would recommend you call for factory warranty service. They may have to charge you for one of these parts, but since it could be a failed compressor, and not the starting components it is better to let them service it and maintain the balance of your compressor warranty.
We have the same and I think it is because the freezer door bounces open when we shut the fridge door. Then the freezer compartment ices up, the fan clogs up with ice and cannot blow cold air into the fridge, and the fridge gets warm and the milk goes off.
Solution? We have bought one of those child safety clips (search for fridge safety clip or lock) to hold the freezer door closed.
Simple design error. Expected better from Bosch :-(
I have the same freezer and get the same problems. Ice forms on the refrigeration fins beind the plastic shroud at the rear and completely blocks the airflow. The fan that moves cool air around does not work then and freezer temp goes up. Ice will often push the shroud forwards so that the door does not close properly. Warm moist air get in and just increases the ice problem.
I take the shroud and fan housing off the rear (4 screws and a wire to the fan) and defrost thoroughly using a hair dryer. You can then see when all the ice has gone..
Hope I'm not too late - I had EXACTLY the same problem and the freezer fan wire was broken. I fixed it an documented everything in http://www.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf. Good luck.
Hi - experienced this myself and spent ages trying to get to the bottom of it - only found one post but it worked and was absolutely clear on the cause nb: i'm not an "expert" !
My understanding of how the Bosch f/f works is that the freezer compartment generates the cold air for the fridge which is regulared at the fridge end . At the back of my fridge there are two "vents" which feed up this cold air up from the freezer into the fridge.
Problem happened to me because I left the freezer door slightly ajar which generated a massive amount of frost (sucking in the moist air from the house I guess then freezing it) and subsequent ice froze up the cooling ducts between the freezer and the fridge. Therefore, no matter how much I turned up the fridge thermo it never got cool. Only solution was to dump my frozen at a mates house and defrost the the FREEZER for a good 24 hrs +.
Worked tho' - fridge was completely back to normal.
PS: I understand this issue may also happen if you put too much unfrozen food into the freezer at one go and in working overtime to get it frozen causing a massive frost up again.
