Question about Bosch Freezers

Problems with the temperature dropping quickly

We are constantly defrosting the elements at the top of the freezer which gets the freezer back to 18 degrees then over a couple of weeks or sometimes days it will drop constantly until the alarm comes on.
The freezer has been like this for some time. So much for frost free!

Sounds like a refrigerant charge problem.

Kenmore elite upright freezer model 25326093100


It does sound like the thermostat is acting up. It could also be a defrost timer if it is a frost free model. The timer could be running slow and remaining in defrost longer than it is designed to. Thermostat can get erretic also and work fine sometimes nad then not work correctly another. When it is shut off after cycling off tap the thermostat. if it comes back on thgis could be your problem.

Ffbm 920w won't cool


It appears that your auto defrosting system (if you have one) is not working. So your evaporator coil is frozen up - all that ice serves as an insulator and not enough cold air is getting down into frig section. Until you replace either the freezer defrost element or the defrost timer all you need to do is unplug for a few hours till it fully defrosts then plug back in - will work fine for a few days at normal internal temps till the ice builds up again.

If your timer and defrost element are both working properly, THEN, you might want to check if you have enough refrigerant in the system - you may have a leak.

Coldspot model: 106 725540 freezes sometimes


You can by pass it but I wouldn't. You may need to replace the t'stat on this. This controls pretty much everything. Depending on your model, the defrost cycle can be adjusted to shorter cycles. Bypassing it would eventually lead to ice build up and a real mess to follow .

When I got home I heard the buzzer going off on the freezer..the temperature had dropped from -12 to -2 and I'm trying to reset it to-12 again how do you do that?


You dont have to reset it, you need to defrost it, the defrost element has failed and you have ice build up within the chiller plates, air cant pass through it due to the ice, I think you will find that food is starting to defrost and you will see a bit of ice on the back panel inside the freezer.
Defrost it for 2 days with door open, after that, should work fine for a week or so, very common problem.
Hope that helps, Russ

Hi Robert, sounds like the unit is not defrosting.

Try this to indicate defost issues.
1. relocate food in the freezer, turn the unit off for 2 days and leave the door open, this will allow total defrost.
2. clean, then restart unit with door closed, after and every 2 hours check temp, I feel you may find it will get to its operating temp reasonably fast and should stay there.

If this is the case, I suspect the defrost heater element has failed and needs replacing, this is the most common cause of your type of issue.

Hope that helps and please dont forget to vote. Regards Russ

Check for ice build-up in and around the freezer fan where the blades are, if you can see ice in there (some times it may look like white foam but dont be fooled, it will be ice), the fan will be hitting it, defrost the freezer and check defrost element, (you will have to dismantle freezer section to get to it but reletively simple job) disconect from mains first. Good luck

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

Freezer temp rises to -15 deg. and is slow to return to -18 deg.


Hi, this unit may be going through its defrost cycle when you notice this warming up time. They defrost on time and temperature depending on the model. If it does this constantly, like a lot, you may have a problem some where. Keep an eye on it and try to time it if at all possible to see the duration of this warm up spell. Please keep me posted on this so I can get to the bottom of this.
Sincerely,
