Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have an E2 error code on my Bosch KGU3201GB/01, I have found out that it is a freezer thermistor short circuit - but I cannot locate where this part is - I think it is buried in the insulation at the back and I have found the fridge thermistor but can't locate the freezer one (no arrow marking it) - can you help?

    I found the fridge thermistor and dug it out, and it houses the same thermistor that is inside the cabinet and therefore it could be replaced - so why can't I do the same for the freezer one (if I could find it) - can you tell me where to look?

It is buried in the insulation in the back of the freezer. Usually there is paper covering the insulation with an arrow indentation directing you where to start your dig. Since you do not have that , I would start in the center and work out in a circle. Once you have completed your repair, you can fix back with foam insulation and the silver, foil tape.

The E2 error indicates the failure of a temperature sensor in the freezer. Unfortunately this is foamed in and cannot be changed. Bosch has modified the main control board for these appliances which bypasses the temperature sensor.
There is no work around for this appliance.
It doesn't just cut out the sensor, it also has new software that performs the defrost in a different manner.

However for a 12 yrs old machine the replacement board may be expensive at £140.84

Errorcode EE in display. Whats wrong?


E1 - Freezer thermistor open circuit.
E2 - Freezer thermistor short circuit.
E3 - Fridge thermistor open circuit.
E4 - Fridge thermistor short circuit.
E7 - Evaporator thermistor open circuit.
E8 - Evaporator thermistor short circuit.
E9 - Temperature set switch open circuit
EA - No feedback from Baffle
EB - Fridge Baffle motor operating continuously
EE - Defrost time out

This was the only code listing with an EE error code - which is a Hotpoint - so if your's isn't a Hotpoint it is probably incorrect.

If you do have a Hotpoint Refrigerator then either the defrost timer is not functioning correctly or your heater element is malfunctioning.

Dryer not working. failure code E2


The electronic control board detected that the thermistor located on the blower housing is shorted (zero resistance). Either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and the electronic control board has a short circuit or the thermistor is indeed shorted.

Code E1


E1 or E2 Thermistor Failure

The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.

Take the top off the dryer and inside you'll find the "tech sheet." It has instructions for removing the front panel and locating the thermistor.

E2 fault on Bosch kgu3201


Dear Sir,

It's a thermistor error, the internal evaporator one... but disconnect the fridge and freezer ones first in turn to see if the error changes. If it is the internal one, you should see an arrow impression on the paper covering the insulation which marks the spot to dig(at the back of the freezer.) Usually this error occur when water ingresses the push on tags, shorting out the thermistor.

Now the bonus... 9 times out of 10, you don't need to buy a spare, as there will probably be nothing wrong with the error giving thermistor. Remove and fit the fridge thermistor in the place of the internal one... clean and dry the internal one you removed and refit it inside the fridge.

You will need to repair the insulation with two pack brown foam insulation and foil tape. deffinately this solution solves your problem.If you have any problem regarding this issue post comment more information about the problem.we will glad to assist you

good luck.

good luck
