Question about Bosch Classixx KGV28323 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Bosch Classixx fridge / freezer

I have had to withdraw 4 of the 6 Bosch fridge / freezers from our sudent accomodation blocks. All with the same problem, the freezers are fine but occasionally the fridge becomes warm. When I reset using the on/off button I can hear the recirculation fan but when I inspect a faulty one it's never running. All f/freezers were supplied about 18 months ago in one batch.

    Interestinly enought I seem to have the same problem, all was running fine until about a month ago and then warm fridge (10 degrees)

    Thought of replacing the thermostat but I think the idea of switching it off with the door open for a few hours is a good one (hopefully the freezer section will survive)

    will try that tonight before going out for beers and hopefully it won't cause a problem if I am late back from the pub

    The Fridge section is real problem. The temprerature seems to range from 5 - 10 degress and cannot set it to anything less than 4 and it quickly rises again. Another problem is creating frost inside regardless of the temperatures spoiling the green vegetables. Anyone with any answers to this on

    I have a Bosch Classixx and the same problem with the fridge going warm. The Bosch people told me to turn it off for 48hrs and defrost. OK?? It is a frost free and there is no frost. So after throwing out food from my fridge now I have to loose all the food in my freezer too. ... Being patient and ever hopeful I dutifully do as told -- well, you guessed folks -- it did not work. So now the engineers are coming out on friday next so will post an update. Good luck to you all and To All A Happy New Year.

Hi - experienced this myself and spent ages trying to get to the bottom of it - only found one post but it worked and was absolutely clear on the cause nb: i'm not an "expert" !

My understanding of how the Bosch f/f works is that the freezer compartment generates the cold air for the fridge which is regulared at the fridge end . At the back of my fridge there are two "vents" which feed up this cold air up from the freezer into the fridge.

Problem happened to me because I left the freezer door slightly ajar which generated a massive amount of frost (sucking in the moist air from the house I guess then freezing it) and subsequent ice froze up the cooling ducts between the freezer and the fridge. Therefore, no matter how much I turned up the fridge thermo it never got cool. Only solution was to dump my frozen at a mates house and defrost the the FREEZER for a good 24 hrs +.

Worked tho' - fridge was completely back to normal.

PS: I understand this issue may also happen if you put too much unfrozen food into the freezer at one go and in working overtime to get it frozen causing a massive frost up again.

I know there was a faulty batch of these some time ago... freezer ok but fridge staying warm. The outcome was that the defrost pipe at the back was blocked (manufacturing issue where it was squashed or something along those lines stopping the water from escaping on defrosting) The ice wouldn't defrost stopping the fan from spinning around for the fridge to get cool. Easy check is inside the freezer section you can see the metal elements at the top through the plastic cover.... These should never be frozen over to any degree as they defrost and freeze constantly. Frankly my experience of fridge freezers is totally appalling as none of the common major manufacturers can actually build one of these things to any standard. I'm on my fourth frost free fridge freezer... first 3 were replaced within 7 months of ownership due to manufacturing failure ! 2 x Hotpoints and 2 x Bosch Classixx. Frankly they all appear to be a pile of rubbish !!!! latest Bosch is now on the fritz after 2 years.... which isn't very long really is it ! Again i think its this blocked pipe issue which i believe to be at fault.

I tried switching ot off for 2 hours last night, but didn't defrost the freezer section at the same time.

Result is hat today the fridge is now warmer then yesterday, and no water cam out of the back during the process

Do I need to also defrost the freezer section at the same time ?

I took off the inner panels that are the 'multiflow' for the cold air, and no ice behind them

Would love to know if there is another potential cause

Many thanks

Ours has been the same - seems that although it is 'frost free' the fridge section can block with ice, inside the panels (so you cannot see any problem).

We have found that switching the unit off and letting it thaw out (catching water at the bottom rear) works but the problem always returns in time.

Takes several hours to thaw.

Hi,my bosch f/f is freezing in the veg box and has a lot of ice under the last box in the freezer comp.What is the problem please?

In the back of your fridge you should see a hosepipe connected from the freezer's defrost water drain to the evaporating tray usually located on top of the compressor. The drain is blocked, hence you get ice on the bottom of freezer. The easiest way to clean it is to pull the hose pipe off the fridge outlet and clean the drain upwards with a piece of soft wire or electric cord or something similar. On my fridge (Bosch) I found the drain clogged with a kind of jelly like stuff. The other way to the drain is by removing back panel inside the freezer compartment but be careful, I sort of ripped mine off and broke plastic plugs on which it was fixed. Make sure you know what you doing.

Bosch intelligent frost free 88

We have the same and I think it is because the freezer door bounces open when we shut the fridge door. Then the freezer compartment ices up, the fan clogs up with ice and cannot blow cold air into the fridge, and the fridge gets warm and the milk goes off.
Solution? We have bought one of those child safety clips (search for fridge safety clip or lock) to hold the freezer door closed.
Simple design error. Expected better from Bosch :-(
