Bosch KSU 44 fridge leaking water

My bosch fridge is leaking water from the bottom. It tends to freeze up in tray at the bottom of the freezer. Have defrosted the fridge on numerous occasion and checked that the drain hole is clear and it tends to start leaking after a week.

    Yea, I have the same problem. It arise 6 months after the warranty expired. I could observe that in the top freezer a lot of ice was accumulated in the floor and behind the back wall.

    I defrosted and unmounted the to freezer to make sure that all the ice was out, but after two weeks the same problem arised.

    Now I'm thinking that the evaporator unit is broken, so I probably will call to the Bosch Technical center.

ok seems here that u have a defrost problem or a buggered evap fan motor ie is there breeze flowing from the cover at the back of the freezer if yes than this fridge has not got a manual defrost control it has an electronic timer built into the main pc board witch means that it could be the defrost element itself or the main pc board is gone looks like u will need to consult a professional to resolve this problem taking into account that there is at least some water dripping into the drip trey at the rear of the fridge at the bottom on top of the compressor if not than it could be a blocked drain

Hi,my bosch f/f is freezing in the veg box and has a lot of ice under the last box in the freezer comp.What is the problem please?


In the back of your fridge you should see a hosepipe connected from the freezer's defrost water drain to the evaporating tray usually located on top of the compressor. The drain is blocked, hence you get ice on the bottom of freezer. The easiest way to clean it is to pull the hose pipe off the fridge outlet and clean the drain upwards with a piece of soft wire or electric cord or something similar. On my fridge (Bosch) I found the drain clogged with a kind of jelly like stuff. The other way to the drain is by removing back panel inside the freezer compartment but be careful, I sort of ripped mine off and broke plastic plugs on which it was fixed. Make sure you know what you doing.

Freezer leaking water and freezing


you probably have a plug in the drain line that normally drains the water when your freezer goes into the defrost mode. at the base of the refrigerator there is a evaporative drain tray where the water drains from the freezer into the tray and evaporates during normal operation of the unit. You should be able to see the drain tube just above the tray. Attach a hose to it and use compressed air to blow through it and clear it out.

Freezer leaking water


My Whirlpool has been filling the bottom under the crispers with water and leaking out the vents (?) from the freezer down into the fridge compartment. I finally caught it today being rather loud, probably in a defrost cycle, and it was positively POURING in the fridge. After some more research on this site I removed the freezer bottom tray (1/4" ratchet needed) and found a layer of 1/2" thick ice under the tray. My guess is the drain hole iced up. Removed all the ice from under the tray and on the metal drain run in the back (danger, seemed sharp) and put it all back together. I didn't try to pour hot water down the drain yet, thinking positive thoughts that the drain itself isn't iced all the way to the tray near the floor. Will watch it carefully.

Bosch intelligent frost free 44


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
