    Both worked perfectly fine for prior owners and first two days we got the home. There is no food in the fridge. Could that have something to do with it for some reason?

    These fridges stayed at the home and were not moved.

I have two Bosch fridges. I just bought this house and there is nothing in either fridge. Worked day we took possession of home, but both stopped working. They have power just won't cool.

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.
    • 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.

    My freezer works fine but the fridge does not seem to be working its a hotpoint FF187L

    There is a small fan, generally accessed in the freezer. It will be behind a vented panel. Its job is to blow cold air, as needed, to the refrigerator. Usually the problem is the little motor that drives this fan.

    If you have a multimeter, you can access the fan and see if it is receiving 115 volts. If it is, and the fan is not spinning, then you need the little motor. If it is not receiving voltage, then you need the thermostat (which is on the fridge side).

    Either part is very easy to replace. The panels are generally attached with a couple Phillips screws, and some just have panels that snap on/off. The parts can be found on eBay or many, many online sellers of appliance parts. Also, you probably have local appliance service businesses that sell parts. You will just need the make a model number.

    If you don't own a multimeter - I will be so bold as to say you should. Very handy tool. And these days you can get a cheap one (for about $10 or so at Wall-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot etc). For household needs, you will be checking for AC Voltage. For auto needs, you will check for DC Voltage.

    If this has been helpful, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Ok, got it sussed! [well here's what I did anyway]...

    Quite simply, I turned off the fridge-freezer at the mains overnight and in the morning, broke and chucked out the ice chunks that had lined up in the bottom of the freezer section and then turned it back on. I returned that night to see that it was working fine again! Hallelujah, I got my fridge back!!

    So it seems that all it needed was a good long defrost, so far so good! I hope this solves your problem.
