    Only turning the main power off and back on again will it start up. Otherwise fridge and freezer goes up to room temp and then it may start automatically

Turn it off and back on gets it working again? are you using the thermostat to turn it off and on? If so, Do it slow and try to feel and irregulatities. Like looseness at any point or possible the whole switch is turning and you aren't getting the setting you want. If so, the thermostat is doing it.

Help, i turned by Bosch Logixx GSL 14424 GB freezer off to defrost and it now won't turn on...

Turn it round and check the electrics for the compressor are dry. You probably flooded them when defrosting and may have shorted something. If it still won't start with everything dried out, call a fridge technician

Freezer not freezing

Kenmore brand refrigerators offer energy efficiency and space saving benefits with a range of innovative designs. The company's refrigerator-freezer units are manufactured in traditional top-mount freezers, bottom-mounts, and side-by-side styles. Occasionally, as with any brand of appliance, the components can malfunction and cause the freezer to stop working properly. A few troubleshooting steps can help locate the problem so that it can be repaired.

  1. Power Supply
    • Occasionally the power cord to your fridge slips out, or the outlet it's connected to is defective. Before troubleshooting other potential problems, check that your fridge is plugged in, and if it is, try plugging something else into the outlet to confirm that it is working. If there is no power, check the fuse or circuit breaker and replace or reset if necessary.
    Thermostat and Compressor
    • Freezers rely on the thermostat to know when to turn on the compressor and when to turn it off. Thus, the thermostat controls the temperature in your fridge. Typically, for a Kenmore refrigerator, the recommended setting for both the refrigerator and the freezer is 3. Check that both are set properly and if they are, try setting the freezer's thermostat to a slightly colder setting. The refrigerator's compressor should turn on. If you don't hear a fan turning inside, your thermostat or compressor may need to be replaced.
    Defrost Timer
    • The defrost timer regulates when the freezer and fridge will run its defrost cycle. If your fridge is not defrosting, or it is defrosting too often, this can affect its ability to freeze food. When in defrost mode, the freezer stops blowing cold air. Test the defrost timer by manually advancing the timer using a screwdriver inserted into the advancement pinion. Turn it clockwise for a 1/4 turn. This should force the timer to advance out of defrost in less than an hour. If it does not, you may have to replace the timer.
    Evaporator Coils
    • When the evaporator coils become frozen, your freezer will likely malfunction. If they are dirty or dusty, the same problem can occur. To defrost the coils inside, you can turn your freezer off for 24 to 48 hours then turn it back on. If it works properly, then the evaporator coils were frozen. Clean the coils located on the back of your fridge as well to ensure that dust and debris aren't affecting their efficiency.
    • The wiring outside and inside your fridge can be damaged by rodents or pets. Check the wiring outside your fridge for breaks. If there are none, you'll have to check all of the wiring. This is a long process requiring you to use a meter to test each connection. You may want to call an electrician to test the wiring to ensure that it is done properly.
    Environmental Factors
    • Once you've checked each component that runs your freezer and confirmed they are working correctly, consider that factors outside the freezer can affect its ability to freeze properly. The problem may be that the door is opened too often or for too long, allowing the cold air to escape and raising the temperature inside. Check the seal around your freezer door to ensure that it is getting a tight seal when closed and no gaps are allowing warm air inside. If you've added a significant amount of food all at once, this will increase the temperature inside and freezing can take several hours. If the vents are blocked by food items the movement of cold air is limited and will affect the freezer's temperature as well.

Hope this would help you.
Have a nice day! : )

I have a bosch fridge freezer model kgu3220 gb. It is ten years old. For the last few days, the fridge isn't cooling but the freezer works fine. The temperature on control panel is stuck on 11 degrees. I...

Once the fridge is shut OFF for few hours to defrost and then switched ON , if the fridge works with cooling , then the fault is with the AUTO DEFROST TIMER or the circuit -maybe the heater, break in the lines to the timer, heater, the fan.
The build up frost will block the flow of cool air to the fridge from the freezer evaporator.
So remove and check.

Bosch fridge freezer stops working after approx 8 hours. Starts OK and freezes OK but next day it's warming up. Turn it off and back on again and it starts all over again and the problem reoccurs..

Found a solution at

Short out the dark blue and the dark brown wires that lead into the temp control dial. Everything now works. This bipasses a dodgy thermister or something. Of course this might not solve all similar problems but it does seem a common fault.

Frigidaire fridge freezer not getting cold

Louise, this is a big area. I would switch off the fridge, look at the back where you see the" box things". You should see a timer which is white or black (wires comming out of it).. It has a short type of knob which can be turned manually clockwise.. Turn about a 1/4 turn then try and switch on again. If not, thermostat will be the problem. Assuming you never disrupted any wires.

Fridge/Freezer keps turning itself off

Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel . If the fan motor , cooling the compressor is working , then the overload/relay is bad . This is the piece plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires attached to it . You can easily replace . If you had given the brand and complete model number , I could have given you the part number .

If the fan is not running , the overload will click off , thereby , causing the compressor to get too hot , making the overload click off .

Fridge got wet, now it sparks and shorts power

I suggest you unplug the fridge. If possible you can then open the wiring connection cover on the compressor (where the supply cable connects) and check what is causing the short circuit. Probably when moist there was a short circuit due to water but this may have burned some of the wiring. This will be quite visible and easy to repair with a bit of insulation tape.
