Question about Bosch Freezers

1 Answer

My GS28v00GB001 upright freezer trips my RCD. I've replaced nearly every electrial component (capacitor) Starter device, Sensors and still it does it. Initially it runs for a number of hours till it trips, then on resetting the RCD it only stays for 8 mins approx till it retrips everytime! HELP me please or I have to junk a perfectly serviceable (hmm) freezer.

I am not familiar with Bosch but I do know that other brands use the defrost heater as a source for power to the compressor while running. If the heater is partially grounded it could cause this problem. If this is okay have your thought that maybe your RCD is going bad... just a thought

A "potential" relay is a voltage controlled start component for the compressor. If your sure the potential relay is bad, not the start capacitor or a seized compressor, Order one from G.E. and replace it.

Freezer trips breaker


If it is tripping the breaker when the unit is in defrost this is will not be the capacitor. You could have a heater or defrost thermostat issue. Please contact a professional for a full diagnosis.

Hi there. I have Electrolux freezer EUU 6174. The problem is that the compressor is switching on and off for 5 seconds and the temperature is to hight. I can't store any food in the freezer. can u help me?


your problem is likely the starting capacitor .. that is a metalic part (about the size of a fist) that is mounted on the compressor or near it .. it will have wires going to the compressor .. the capacitors are not very expensive and usually easy to change but make sure the unit is unplugged .. you can either write the numbers down off the capacitor or remove it and take it with you to a parts place to get a match ... take a photo or draw a diagram so you know where the wires go .(they usually just plug in) . .. you can order one from electrolux (might be higher price) .. dont allow the unit to continue running with the bad starting cap since the compressor can be damaged eventually ... if you call a repairman .. then make sure you tell him its a bad starting cap so he can bring one wiith him and avoild a second trip .. give him the model number and numbers off the capacitor if you can ... often the capacitor is actually two capacitors in one can ... one is for the compressor and the other is hooked up to the fan ... in that case replacing one would also replace the other ..

Kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch


If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.

A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.

Alarm Flashing Red & Bleeping


Did the RCD tripping have anything to do with the freezer? You could have a faulty defrost heater, which means the freezer will not defrost at all.
