Dodgy fridge light

Our light in our Bosch Exxcel refrigerator freezer does not always go off when the door is closed. The door seems to have dropped to be too low to hit the sensor. What can I do to heighten the door?

Re: Dodgy fridge light

Generally, these doors drop from excessive weight, a warn part or loose fittings. Unload the door and investigate. You may also want to check that the unit is levelled...the box may be warping/sagging...although this is unlikely.

Fridge door magnetism does not work - when closing door does not pull shut?

if it's new or recently been moved for some reason, Making a minor adjustment to the front wheels, slightly positions your Refrig. so that a rear-tilt causes gravity to allows the doors to close, assisted by the weight of food products on the door.
If you've had it for some time, You might want to check and clean the metal surface area and the door gasket on the hinge-side. As a habit, cleaning door gaskets, with soap and warm dish towel, will preserve the life of the gasket and save you couple of bucks down the road.

Bosch Exxel KGV28323 fridge freezer. When door is shut the light goes dim but not completely off. Thinking a dodgy contact might be the cause. Have replaced the switch but no change. Have rcd fitted and...


I thought the same with mine, but its supposed to, there is a switch near the thermostat, if you turn it off the light will go off when the door is shut, you are supposed to leave it on if the room the fridge is in is under 18 degrees, the heat off the dim bulb stabelises the temperature and keeps the freezer working

There is a buildup of ice behind the lower section of the plastic back panel which eventually prevents the door from closing.

How to take doors off Bosch Exxcel KGH39A07GB

I've just had to do this - a real pain, and you would think that Bosch would include it in the instructions or somewhere on their website!

You have to put the fridge/freezer on its back (putting a cushion or something like that at the top to make sure the back doesn't get damanged). Starting at the bottom, unscrew the three bolts holding the bottom door in place, then the middle hinge between the fridge and freezer, and then the screws at the top holding the fridge door in place. Then reverse everything round (you may have to make holes where there are dimples on the top of the freezer door/bottom of the fridge door). Good luck!

Bosch KGU31124 Freezer Not Working

I have the same freezer and get the same problems. Ice forms on the refrigeration fins beind the plastic shroud at the rear and completely blocks the airflow. The fan that moves cool air around does not work then and freezer temp goes up. Ice will often push the shroud forwards so that the door does not close properly. Warm moist air get in and just increases the ice problem.

I take the shroud and fan housing off the rear (4 screws and a wire to the fan) and defrost thoroughly using a hair dryer. You can then see when all the ice has gone..
