Bosch frig/freezer fan icing up... How can I stop the problem?


This could be caused by 1 of 2 problems.
1. Your evaperator coils could be clogged with dust. Clean with a vacuum hose.
2. If that is not the problem, the freon pressure is probably low and this is caused by a leak. This would require a professional repair person. How old is the frig? Sometimes they are not worth the repair cost.

Fridge not cooling properly


The first thing I would check is to make sure your condenser grill is clear of dirt and lint balls. If it is extremely dirty the grill can't disapate the heat from the compressor. The best way to clean, that I have found is with a shop vac and an air compressor. Blow from the back and vacuum from the front. This will require the removal of the rear shield and the front kick plate. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST!

The next thing to check is the defrost system. If that has failed you will have ice build up on the evaperator coils behind the shield in the freezer section. You can manually defrost your unit by unplugging and then use a hair dryer to remove the ice. But be ready to deal with the water from the ice! If you do have an ice buildup, then you can check the heating element and the thermostat that are located close to the coils in the freezer section - and can be checked with an ohm meter. Or it could be the main board since the defrost timer is built into it.

Water is dripping into fridge compartment from section separating fridge and freezer compartments, otherwise, both seem to be working fine. unit was new in 2001, model ET21PK.


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

1965 Frigidaire unit - heavy ice build up on coils


Sound like the defrost thermistat or heater is bad. Regardless if you have ice block on coils defrost thermistat must be replaced. Even if still good it gets damaged. Empty out fridge and let manually defrost for 24 to 48 hours. With doors open and unplugged. Test heater with a meter to see if its still good. Replace defrost thermistat and plug back in.

Temperature lowering problem.................


Are you referring to 16 degrees and 34 degrees?
If you are, it is not possible to lower the setting to 16 degrees, 32 degreees is freezing, so the evaperator coil would start to freeze up, and as the ice spreads across the coil............... Air can not flow through ice, so the air will stop blowing, till you shut the system down for a couple of hours, to allow the ice to melt.
This is the reason why these units are set with min. temp settings.
I hope this helps.

Fridge problem


you have a defrostion issue reed to remove the back panel in the freezer behind this panel is the evaperator coil needs to be melted down because it is full of ice and frost, ahair drier will work well,put several towells down under the bottom of the evaperator to catch water runoff, after defrosting the coil inspect the defrost heater or heaters some of these can have one or two heaters the heaters are located behind metal gaurds in the evaperator if either of the heaters are bad (both)need to be replaced, if they show good then bad defrost timer or bad defrost termination thermastat wiring diagram behind frount bottom grill
