Question about Bosch Refrigerators

1 Answer

Bottom freezer model KGU30605GB. Red warning light came on this evening first time with left front side of freezer portion dissipating moderate heat. Cleared out ice formation from fridge unit thinking this might be a cause and switched unit back on. But again, after about 15-20 minutes, freezer unit left side started heating up. Unloaded stuff from the middle and bottom shelves of freezer thinking these might have been overloaded with little/reduced circulation area, but again same phenomena reiterated. Currently observing heat build up rate, but presume red warning light might come back on if left running overnight. Fride/freezer is full of food stuff. Could you kindly throw some light on the possible issue, please? Thanks in advance and regards Sudeepto Bose Mullingar

    Heat dissipation has ceased overnight since complain, after reducing further load on freezer and opening door for shorter durations instead of longer ones on day of problem. Assistance no longer needed for now. Thx

The freezer part of your unit usually has an independent line from the compressor. The phenomena which you are experiencing usually is as a result of a leakage in the pipe which runs into the freezer. This leakage usually causes the pressure from the compressor to become reduced and therefore unable to produce cold hence the heating.
The red warning light comes up as an indicator that the temperature in the freezer has become to high. Get a repair expert to trace the line for leakages and block them and also to fill up the gas in the compressor.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Kenmore side by side Refrigerator top portion is not getting cold. The freezer is working and the bottom portion of the refrigerator is cold but not the top portion of the refrig,


the refrigerator simply by transferring the cold air from freezer via circulation fan the temp controls tells the fan to circulate cold air until the thermostat is satisfied I would check to see if the fan is blowing on most models I have seen its located in the left rear wall closest to the freezer above the top shelf

The ice maker has stopped working , a red light is flashing.


according to the led flash cycle, you can figure this out. if you open the freezer door and the light flashes two times, that is normal. if you close the flapper on the left side of the freezer, the light should remain lit, and that means that the optic system is functioning correctly. there is a diagram behind the vent panel on the bottom front of the fridge.

My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting...


That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch if the fan is not running .

Red glow (from defrost heater?) at bottom of rear panel in freezer


This is from the GE Appliance "Knowledge Database" Web site:

Refrigerator - Explanation Of Red Glow

In a no frost refrigerator, the defrost timer activates defrost heaters in the evaporator section (rear of freezer) which heat up and melt the frost off the evaporator coils. This process lasts for approximately 25-45 minutes and usually happens up to twice a day.

During this time, there will be no running sounds, no fan noise, and you may hear water dripping or sizzling as it hits the heaters. On side by side models, you may even be able to see an orange glow at the bottom of the freezer.

This is normal.

Hotpoint side-by-side freezer drain freezes


yes totally defrost unit and verify drain is not plugged, make sure drain is trapped. it may drain into a pan on top of compressor, where heat dissipated by compressor evaporates condensate. certain crosly model freezers made by w.c. wood co. have a problem with that.
