Question about Bosch KIM29473GB Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I thought I would include the first advisory email here and also additional information about state of fridge...cheers John
(Advice) ...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.
(John)... At the moment I haven't yet located a volt meter but will do soon. When I plug in the fridge the thermostat regulator I believe (the controls that adjusts the temperature ) in the fridge lights up and what ever settings I press the corresponding lights illuminate on the control dispite this the the fridge starts to hum and then trips out! Taking a closer look from the back of the fridge at the compressor and listening for the intermittent hum and then the trip out, this sound seems to come from the capacitor (the small silver canister to the left of the compressor ...could it be the capacitor that needs replacing ?
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
