Question about Bosch KIM29473GB Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bosch KIM29473GB refrigerator lights on but no refridgeration

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
Good luck

If your refrigerator section is not cold enough at the normal setting you may have a problem.
If you can't find enough information at the link below resubmit your question and include the model number. It should be inside the refrigerator section. It's usually on the upper right wall.

Hi my Bosch Logixx fridge keeps switching off and now the temperature light is flashing


Chances are the electronic board has something to do with its erratic operation. As you know it control the operation of the refrigerator including temperature control, defrost timer, etc.But before replacing that, have the compressor, relay, overload protection be check. That is located at the back of the refrigerator.
Good luck!

MAYTAG REFRIDGERATOR NOT COOLING


Check to see if the evaporator fan is blowing. Sometimes removing the back panel to expose the fan and hand turning it can make it come back on. If this doesn't work then the fan is bad. Also make sure that there is good circulation to the fridge side. Food can sometimes block air flow.

Bosch classixx refridgerator


the evaporator is probably iced up and hence poor air flow. (i am assuming it is a frost-free type). switch off and leave for 24 hours with door open is the easy cure. otherwise, remove the back inside panel of the freezer and melt off the excess ice with a hairdryer used carefully
