Question about Bosch Refrigerators

Open Question

We have a bosch kgn34x60gb fridge freezer. The fan that circulates the cold air from the freezer into the fridge compartment runs virtually constantly. The freezer is set at -18deg and the fridge at "3". Both compartments have contents but are not jam packed. It seems that it should not need to run so much. The constant noise is unwelcome. How much should it run?

SOURCE: Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside

Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

Bosch kann58a50gb/o8 fridge not cooling freezer seems ok

See or hear if the fan inside is working. Im not conversant with your model. Some units have 2 fans , 1 in the freezer and 1 in the fridge. Some only have1 , which will be in the freezer only. If the fan fails, the fridge cannot blow cold air into the food compartment. Generally, when an evaporator fan fails, the fridge doesn't get cold and the freezer overfreezes causing an excess ice buildup in the freezer.

Should the fan operate all the time in my refrigerator

Most of the time it runs only when the compressor is running. In other words compressor and fans will run together when the fridge thermostat ask for cold and stops together when thermostat is satisfied. In newer fridges some time inside fan (evaporator fan) might PERIODICALLY run without compressor to circulate little cool air to fridge compartment from freezer compartment.

I have a model MTB1956GE Maytag Fridge, Frezzer

Can you feel air moving or hear the fan running in the freezer section? You said the freezer section is freezing well, but is it freezing really hard?

Two year old Fridge with bottom freezer and french door upper. Cold freezer and a warm fridge how can we correct this?

First thing to check would be the fan in the freezer compartment, it circulates the cold air up to the refrigerator compartment

Fridge not pumping any cold

All your cold air for the fridges comes from your freezer compartment.If you are haveing ice build up in the freezer comparment there may be an issue with your defrost circuit.

While the unit is in a cooling mode open the freezer door and listen to for the fan running in the freezer this is the evaporator fan that circulates the cold air to your fridge compartment if it is not running replace it.

If it does run try and check your defrost circuit and make sure the unit goes into the defrosat cycle

Freezer gets cold refrigerator doesn't

check the damper door located between the freezer and refrigerator compartments(this lets in the cold air from the freezer) and make sure it opens and closes with your temp adjustment in the refrigerator compartment,sometimes they ice-up and are frozen in one position then take a hair dryer and defrost the door

Freezer and ice maker quit working / The temp.display on the door is just flashing .

There may be a fan that moves cold air in the freezer and icemaker compartment(s).  If the fan freezes up the cold air will not circulate.  Since the fridge compartment is still cold it does not sound like a compressor problem.

Fridge doesn't get cold enough

 If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.

If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.

Bosch Fridge Freezer Model kan60a45g - Water Dispenser is not working, only a tiny dribble!! I've proven water flow to the egress / exit of the water tank... I have a Bosch American Style Fridge Freezer Model kan60a45g. The water flow out of the built in dispenser has gone from perfectly fine to a tiny dribble, it was gradual and I assumed it was the filter needing to be replaced. However replacing the filter seemed to make it worse, so I replaced filter with the plug in order to remove it from the equation. It still didn't work, so I went to the beginning of the flow and confirmed the pressure / flow into the "in pipe" was fine. I then checked flow to and from the filter unit, again fine. Down now to the inlet valve (I think it is called) and I checked all the valves worked here when required - they do. Next I checked the flow at the point of entering the water tank which sits in the fridge. It seems fine. I removed and flushed the tank and confirmed there are no problems with its flow when refitted. So sadly it seems the problem is somewhere between the exit of the water tank and the outlet in the freezer door itself. Everything else is checked out. I cannot see how the pipework runs from the fridge side into the freezer section and then up through the hinge of the freezer door. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I suppose I would remove and replace the pipe - it has to be blocked somewhere I guess? Could I blast with compressed air? If anyone has experience of this issue, or knowledge of how to remove this last bit of pipe work then I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance!
