Bosch is a high end manufacturer of appliances. Occasionally things can go wrong, such as fluctuations in temperature. Bosch's policy is to charge for calls to customer service advice, even when the appliance is still under warranty, so it's worth trying these troubleshooting steps before making the call. Bosch refrigerators also have an appliance self-test which you can run.
Instructions

    • 1 Check that the plug is inserted into the household power outlet at the wall. If there's no text displayed on the display panel, it is because there is no power to the fridge.
    • 2 Make sure that the door hasn't been left open if the warning signal sounds. The warning signal means the temperature is rising, and frozen food can be at risk. Visually inspect that the ventilation openings aren't covered by household objects, debris or dirt. Press the "Alarm Off" button to switch off the alarm.
  • 3 Ensure that the temperature controls are set correctly if the fridge or freezer compartments get too cold.
  • 4 Check that the water supply is on if the ice-maker isn't producing ice. Test the water supply by using the water dispenser on the door. If "IWD Off" is displayed on the panel, the ice and water are supplies are off and need to be turned on again.
  • 5 Press the "Condensation Heating" switch near the ice dispenser and water outlet on the door if condensation forms on the outside of the refrigerator. If the environment around the refrigerator is too humid, the appliance can compensate for that.
  • 6 Run the self-test program to identify major faults. Switch the refrigerator off and wait five minutes. Switch the refrigerator on again. Press the "Select" and "Options" buttons at the same time for five seconds. The self-test will commence. Keep an eye on the display. "E" indicates a fault which needs reporting to customer service. The number in the US is 1-800-944-2904.

    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 :-(

    Icemaker/water dispenser not working.


    Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

    Fridge has problems


    sounds like the defrost clock may be going bad and or a door switch. Look for a hole that has whatr looks like a big screw that you can turn.

    Bosch Classixx fridge / freezer


    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.
