Question about Bosch Refrigerators
Trying to fix a problem with fridge being warm. Freezer ok
Top freezer drawer is pushing into panel that covers heat exchanger /cooling unit. This panel seems to have dropped.
Unable to remove panel to examine cause - two screws at front but panel seems rigid. Any advice on how to access or rmeove this panel?
CHECK TO SEE IF THE EVAPORATOR FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING, ITS IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER SIDE, MOTOR MAY BE BAD OR SOMETHING COULD BE BLOCKING IT...

relies on air flow between fridge and freezer but is regulated.
fault is probably ice build up on top of evaporator in freezer. remove back panel inside freezer and check. also check the air ducts are not iced up

The freezer will stay cold because a small
amount of cold air will be forced through the frost but that will not
be enough to make it up to the refrigerator portion. You can defrost
the unit by removing the metal panel and allowing the frost to melt.
Careful use of a hairdryer can speed up this process. This will likely
be a temporary fix. The root cause of excessive frost can be caused by
a bad door seal or a defective defrost circuit.
First check that the door seal is good by closing the door on a dollar bill at several points around the door, both on the freezer and refidgerator door. If you can pull the bill out with no resistance, the door is not making a good seal. Inspect the seal and make sure there isn't anything stopping the door from closing such as food, or a shelf not pushed in all the way.
If the door seal is good, the defrost system is likely defective. The defrost system has three main parts, the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. None of these parts are particularly expensive, or difficult to replace you feel comfortable with repairing it yourself. If you can troubleshoot this by manually starting the defrost cycle. Let me know if you would like this procedure.

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.
