The switch that is supposed to cycle on and off when you close/open the door is not working. Try som CRC or WD 40 spray on it and exercise it. If this doesn't work, replace the switch.

SOURCE: Dodgy fridge light

Generally, these doors drop from excessive weight, a warn part or loose fittings. Unload the door and investigate. You may also want to check that the unit is levelled...the box may be warping/sagging...although this is unlikely.

SOURCE: light bulbs have been replaced but don't light

Hello Binfull,

Since you replaced both bulbs with new ones and they still won't illuminate, there is a high probability that the open door switch is not working or if you have a newer style refridgerator then in some models if the electronic brain for that model sensed the door has been open for too long, it will shut off the lamps.. Try this.. unplug the firge for a minute or two then plug it back in. Check to see if that 'power up clear' cycle got the lights to illuminate. Also, if your model has a freezer that has lights in it check to see if they go on. Hope that helps you.. Good luck...

SOURCE: temperature going up on refrigerator, inside light going off

Many things can cause this problem...This fridge is computer controlled. there are tests you can run to find out what is going on.....It may help you isolate to the area of the problem...Getting parts could be hard....
Most service personnel can't fix this fridge because it's too complex...

Here a link to the service manual PDF

My Bosch Exxcel has lost power, fuse is ok and machine gets power to it, but no lights or action?


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Hi,

I thought the same with mine, but its supposed to, there is a switch near the thermostat, if you turn it off the light will go off when the door is shut, you are supposed to leave it on if the room the fridge is in is under 18 degrees, the heat off the dim bulb stabelises the temperature and keeps the freezer working

Bosch exxcel 1200 express spinning slowly


I would suggest that you remove the motor, and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

The handle of my Bosch exxcel dishwasher is stuck inwards and doesnt move, this stops the door from closing - when pushed shut it pops back open. How can I fix this?


i usually use 2 thin bladed screwdrivrs and flip the catch back over without dismantelling the door.
for the catch to flip usually means the unit is not level as the door is not closing squarely..

Light bulb in new bottom freezer model


Maybe the little man inside that shuts it off is on vacation. Just kidding! With the door open, look for a little trigger/switch that shuts the light off when you close the door, press it and see if the light goes out. Out of curiosity, what wattage bulb do you have in there that would melt the cover. It should be no larger than 40w, 25w being the best.
