Bosch KGU40124 water leaking from freezer

I have a bosch KGU40124 Fridge Freezer that has recently been forming ice in the bottom of the freezer and now where else, when the bottom of the freezer is full of ice, (there is a moulded tray under the bottom drawer), water starts to leak out onto the floor.
I went away for a week recently and left the fridge off and defrosted with the doors open for the whole week, the problem returned almost straight away after it was turned back on.
Reading comments on here i assume the drain is blocked somehow... problem is... where is the drain??? I have no idea where to look for it. Does the drain run from the fridge to the freezer or just from the freezer to the evaporation tray under the fridge?
Any pointers would be appreciated.

Remove freezer back panel and you will see a tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle and it is this which is blocked. if blocked with ice, clear with some hot water and make sure drain is free and water flows away

My Bosch KGU3420GB fridge freezer keeps getting a thick layer of ice in the bottom of the freezer which then 'welds' itself to the bottom freezer draw. Any idea how to fix this?


Sounds like the drain is blocked and defrost water is collecting in the base. Try a full defrost and check the drain hole clears.

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 :-(

Bosch fridge freezer - ice build up and water leak from freezer


Hi,
This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.

Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

We have a free standing bosch fridge/freezer, the freezer is at the bottom. Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer, underneath the last drawer.


sounds like the drain hole in the back of the freezer has blocked and when the defrost kicks in the water is not running out of the drain hole but into the bottom of the freezer. best do a full defrost and if it occurs again the drain hole will need to be cleared out.

there is a drain hole in the freezer dept in the fridge that is blocked This requires removing all the panels etc within the freezer until you get to the main grill at the back This will be iced up so you might have to wait a while or you might be able to chip away at it. You will then see the drain hole concerned at thre bottom Try pocking a thin wire down it or poor hot water over it Its a bit of fiddling around but is not hard to clear Problem solved

Bosch KGU31124 Freezer Not Working


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..

Bosch KGU44120 frost free fridge freezer (6 years old) generates ice on floor of freezer compartment within a couple of hours. Maintains -20C temperature no problem.


drain is blocked in freezer. take back panel off inside the freezer and you will probably find that the bottom is covered with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and hot water till water flows freely down the drain. needs a bit of patience
