Question about Bosch Refrigerators

Fridge not cooling, freezer fine

I have a similar issue with a KGN33V00GB that I picked up on eBay. I cannot hear a fan running, the freezer is cold, but the fridge is not. Turning the fridge temp control knob accomplishes nothing.

Is it possible to remove the fan to inspect it? I've heard that the fans are noisy and suspect, so I should be able to hear it if it is running?

    The door switch seems to work the light, so I'm guessing it functions fine. Does the same switch also switch the fan in and out then?

You might try removing and ohming out the door switches before you remove the fan motor. for fan motor operation the switch should read open on the NO to C and closed on NC to C with the switch out of the fridge. push and hold in the switch and the opposite readings should be observed IE closed on NO - C and open on NC - C. look closely at the switch for these letters.
If you have an electronic control system with an led or lcd display a magnetic switch may be employed and this would do both operations with a magnet close to the switch acuator.

You might check this link for details that are similar to your fridge issue. Likely you do not have cold air fanning to the bottom compartment hence not cool. I assume your seals work properly and that it is a fridge internal issue.

Fridge warm and freeze cold


Rachael, I recently had a similar issue. Unfortunately, the problem you describe could be related to several components & sensors that could have failed which cause similar symptoms. There are a few things that you will need to start with in order to best lead you in the best direction for repair. First, ice building up says that there may be a problem with the auto defrost cycle. Usually a sensor that sits on the evaporator in the freezer side. You want to start with actually measuring the temp in the freezer and the fridge. If you can, remove items, turn fridge off & then unplug fridge from outlet. Let sit overnight with doors open. Two goals, here. One, ensuring that any ice that has formed in the air passages has a chance to melt completely. Second, unplugging the fridge helps "reset" the control module. You stated "hearing the motor" working. Do you mean the compressor or the fan in the fridge. IMPORTANT, you need to make sure that when the fridge is "running" that you can feel air blowing in the freezer & fridge section. Do this before turning off & unplugging. Lastly for now, did anything out of the ordinary happen before you noticed improper operation?

Kenmore side by side fridge. Green temp light flashing for fridge side, freezer side working fine. Fridge side not cooling.


possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

Fridge section is warm freezer is cold fan not working can hear the motor from thr fan but fan is definately not spinning. BCH KGN33V00GB


Hello Tonytonz953,

I understand that you are needing to change the fan on your refridgerator. The fan is loacted in the freezer section and has an outlet that blows in to the fridge compartment. You can order the fan at the following link http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/parts/search/fan-/bosch/fridges-freezers/kgn33v00gb%2f06/b/c/m/ this is the cheapest on that I could find and the cost is 75.85 pounds.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My Whirlpool side by side fridge and freezer not working


Most likely, if you can hear the compressor running, the fan inside the freezer is not working. When the compressor is running, open the freezer and listen for the fan running. If you don't hear it, locate it and, with a voltmeter, test for voltage across the terminals. If you have voltage present, replace the fan. You can buy replacement fans at a local appliance parts store, internet parts suppliers, even ebay.

Suspected broken fan prevents top fridge section cooling down


Very good diagnosis and conclusion. That price for the motor is about right. I think you will not have any truble with the ciculation after you install the motor.

Maytag MFD2561HES Reefer not cooling


hello frooska,

kindly look at the back panel of the freezer section. if you can hear the humming sound, find out where it is coming from. if the sound is coming from the compressor, that means the evaporator fan is not running.

but, take note that u need to press the door switch of the freezer in order to check the fan. the fan stops every time the door is open. if the fan is not running, you have to remove the middle panel, above the evaporator, the fan would be there. ( in the freezer section)

but if the fan is running and the back panel of the freezer is full of frost, then that would be a defrost issue.

defrost heater, bi-metal or defrost controller.

Tnx 4 uisng Fixya,

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
