This may be caused by the thermostat being faulty. To be sure you need to find someone with a volt meter who can check that power is in fact reaching the compressor (freon canister). If it is getting power, then it is possible that the compressor has failed and would need replacing.

Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXPS fridge/freezer has stopped working. It is not cold and food is thawing. The light in the fridge and the freezer is still on but it is not cooling.


can you hear a humming sound coming from the back of the refrigerator, if so that means your compressor is running, if you are hearing a buzz or clicking sound your compressor is trying to start, you may need a compressor. Some whirlpools have a 5 year sealed system warranty that would cover the repair.

Bosch Fridge Freezer: Fridge Not Cooling


Your refrigerator's cool is provided by your freezer section through a damper - there should not be excessive frost on the cooling coils - the most common problem is a defrost timer - are you absolutely sure the noise you hear is the defrost this is the first thing to check, defrost control and its components, is it properly shutting off or stuck on during operation - the next thing to check is for possible sealed system problems / small leaks, door gasket seals, etc.

The fact that it started to work once you manually defrosted is the key here - an over forsted evap will cause the problems you describe most commonly - so have your defrost system checked completly and properly - that should solve the problem. followed by checking door gaskets, damper and sealed system - if only part of the coils are frosted as opposed to the entire surface, that usually a clue to sealed system leak - yes 10C is quite warm for a refrigerator. It should be between 34F-40F, optimal is 34F. And freezer section no warmer than 10F, optimal at 0F (-18C)

Fridge not cooling, freezer fine


You might try removing and ohming out the door switches before you remove the fan motor. for fan motor operation the switch should read open on the NO to C and closed on NC to C with the switch out of the fridge. push and hold in the switch and the opposite readings should be observed IE closed on NO - C and open on NC - C. look closely at the switch for these letters.
If you have an electronic control system with an led or lcd display a magnetic switch may be employed and this would do both operations with a magnet close to the switch acuator.

The freezer on my bosch fridge freezer is not working


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Bosch KIM29473GB refrigerator lights on but no refridgeration


it sound more like the compressor is faulty siezed up
if so it will try to work then trip on the compressor overheat it will rest for about three to five minutes then try again
if this is happening it almost certainly eliminates the stat if the stat was faulty the compressor would not try to start compressor expensive to replace and time consuming would take about two hours
Good luck

A loud intermitant buzzing coming from the back of the fridge


either the noise is coming form he ice maker fill valve( but if its of and still aking noise i doubt it. it also possible that the noise is coming from the compressor itself, overheating nad trying to restart in which case would give a slight "buzz" noise for 5secs or so then "click" off, and wait maybe 3 min to restart again. look for melted ice andperhaps your ice dream ont as hard as it should be???
