Question about Bosch Refrigerators
I just purchased a used Bosch fridge. The problem is that it does not get colder then 8° Celsius. The bottom freezer works fine, meaning it gets very cold -17 Celsius.
The compressor will turn on only for a few minutes or so and then turn off and wont turn on again until a few hours later.
Is this a thermostat problem? It has a turn knob on the top to control the temperature and even on the highest setting it does not get colder.
Or does the system need a refrigerant refill?
Hi: It shouldn't need a recharge as your freezer is cold, and that's wher the fresh food section gets its cold from via a fan. If your vents are blocked with too much food in the freezer this will happen. If you have a problem with the defrost heater or timer frost will build and block the port to the fan, causing a warm fresh food section. If the circulating fan is out your f.f. section will get warm. It's a small fan not to be confused with the condenser fan below (at the grill.) Here's a question for you. Did the fresh food compartment work for the first week or two? That's how long it would take frost to build and jam the system if your defrost system is out. If this is the case you can unplug it and put your food in a cooler. Melt the frost with a hair dryer carefully avoiding plastic components. It will then work for a week or two before it fails again. It will get you buy until you get service. If you do it yourself... Look for the defrost heater in the freezer and see if the coil of wire in the glass tube is broken. You will need a service manuals or a parts list with a diagram. Sears parts on line has a good database of parts and diagrams. Hope this helped, Jeff
