SOURCE: I have a Bosch fridge

hi thanks for the question the drain from the freezer to the drain pan is clogged up now with these new fridges the drain hose goes between the outside and inside wall of the fridge so the only way to clear the drain is to shut the fridge down with the doors open to allow the ice to thaw buy yourself a small plastic hose from hardware store and after it has thawed go to the drain tube at the back near the drain tray and blow into the tube to clear this should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc

Water leaking from bottom of my Bosch fridge (irregular - might be defrosting??)


There is a tray under many refrigerators that traps water so that it may harmlessly evaporate. It or the drip tube may have become dislodged, possibly by cleaning under the unit. The tray should easily be removed, then you may see if it or the tube is the problem.

Does a bosch fridge freezer always have water in the evaporation tray?


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

It is normal to have water in your evaporator drain pan.

Your refrigerator goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours, where your refrigerator will shut down for about 20 minutes and your defrost heater turns on.
You do not need to clean your drain pan. You have a condenser fan that blows across the drain pan to evaporate the condensate.

You drain pan will fill during the defrost cycles. the condenser fan blow across the drain pan and will evaporate the water.

The amount of water in your drain pan will depend on conditions such as high frost in the freezer.

Mary, you had just happened up the drain pan not completely evaporating the condensate.

Sounds to me like you are in good shape.

I am not sure but just for good measure>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Bosch stand alone freezer Intelligent 32 - how to defrost


Hi
I have the same refrigerator and found the manual;
"The refrigerator compartment was programmed to defrost automatically meaning you do not have to constantly clean and dry it. Copy from the manual"
Also have a look in the back for the drain outlet - very small. If that is clogged up it also cause water on the inside.

Bosch intelligent frost free 40


The small drain pipe on the back of the fridge gets clogged, hence no drainage when defrosting, hence ice blocks the airflow between the freezer compartment and the fridge compartment.
Remove the rubber stop from the drain pipe and clean (can be found above the motor)
Defrost the fridge for a few days (it takes at least 48 hours). During this time, if you are not brave enough to remove the internal panels of the freezer and continually clean the water, check for water coming out and clean.
If during the defrost there is no water coming out the drain pipe, use about 2m of flexible and strong wire to clean the pipe.
The aim is to unblock the pipe once the ice has melted.

Bosch Cooler is broken


im taking it that the cooler you refer to is actually a general fridge. if its not working, it is either your th/stat which has not reset or if not, assuming your fridge is an auto defrost, look behind the freezer and locate the timer. you should see a plastic knob plus/minus in the middle of the timer. turn the knob and listen if refrigerator comes on. if not call a tech.
