Seals don't lose their magnetism. Check the door closes all the way round and adjust the hinges if it doesn't sit straight. Check there isn't a relief valve frozen up or blocked (it allows air to escape when the doors are closed). Check the drawers are fully pushed back in and not stopping the door closing properly
There is no suction normally. The door has a spring type mechanism to keep it firmly closed, and the magnetic seal takes up the slack. Check the door/ hinge is straight and tight and look at the top of the hinge. There is a small cylinder about 5mm high with a number of dimples in it. One of these should have a pin in it that operates the spring mechanism; if it is missing the door will not close well.
Also make sure there is nothing in the fridge protruding, stopping the door from closing and the seal sticking!
HI Dean, All the cold air is generated in the freezer and pushed to the refer side by a fan. With that being said, with an obstructed air channel the refer suffers. So you will need to determine how the air flow is obstructed. Do you have ice on the back wall of the freezer? If so, defrost could be the problem, if not, has the units door been left open? If so, you will need to remove the air flow restriction. To further help you, I need a model number, and answers to the questions above to understand what you see so I can direct you in the right direction and repair.Good Luck
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 :-(
