SOURCE: Bosch KSU 40 fridge leaks water

I found that the entire defrost system had frozen over. to check the fridge for this problem you will need to:

pull out fridge, turn off power, remove cord (whilst at the back check the grills are clean, all dust in the cavity of the house and the condensor is clean and ensure that the 'travel wedge' has been removed from the engine.

remove food and shelves from freezer compartment.

with small (2.5mm wide) standard pop the three white screw covers up from the bottom tray. Undo the 2 philips head screws (with a 2 point screwdriver) Pull tray out. Lot of ice underneath? It's frozen over! you're going deeper!

Remove centre tower by squeezing the sides at the base near the rear wall. remove.

Chisel ice and remove, pour a little hot water down the two funnels at the rear.

To examine how fair the problem is and to let air to circulate you can remove the rear wall and polysterene insulation by removing the panel in the left upper portion with the 2.5mm screwdriver and removing the red, far right socket (this is the fan's point). Use 2 point and remove the 2 screws on the rear wall and remove, remove insulation. You're in.

Let completely defrost, clean up and dry all water and re-install.

SOURCE: refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

SOURCE: bosch intelligent frost free 40

The small drain pipe on the back of the fridge gets clogged, hence no drainage when defrosting, hence ice blocks the airflow between the freezer compartment and the fridge compartment.
Remove the rubber stop from the drain pipe and clean (can be found above the motor)
Defrost the fridge for a few days (it takes at least 48 hours). During this time, if you are not brave enough to remove the internal panels of the freezer and continually clean the water, check for water coming out and clean.
If during the defrost there is no water coming out the drain pipe, use about 2m of flexible and strong wire to clean the pipe.
The aim is to unblock the pipe once the ice has melted.

MY MAGIC CHEF IWORKS FINE 2 TO 3 WEEKS A TIME ,AFTER 3 WEEKS IT STOPS COOLING - I REMOVE EVERYTHING OUT FRIDGE AND UNPLUG IT FOR A DAY ,A DAY LATER I PLUG BACK AND IT OPERATES FINE FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS AND I...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Without your model number here is what most likely has happened:
The automatic defrosting system is not working due to a component failure.

The components of the automatic defrost system are:
1. Defrost control
2. Defrost heater
3. Defrost thermostat.
4. Wiring to inter-connect 1 - 3 above.

What your currently doing is a manual defrost cycle every 3 weeks because ice blocks the air-flow across the evaporator in the freezer compartment so everything starts warming up in the fresh food section first and finally the freezer as the ice block gets larger.

FYI you can unplug it... remove the contents from the freezer...use an external directed into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours to do the same process your doing in 24 hours. Until the automatic defrost system is repaired you should do a manual defrost at least every 4 days.
Most units are on an automatic defrost cycle of 6 - 8 hours (usually) all the way up to 10.35 hours per cycle. Yours just is not working at all.

Freezer works fine, fridge compartment cools but has stopped cooling as good and has recently stopped cooling. did a manuel defrost on fridge and freezer worked fine afterwards, now doing the same thing...



Oncce the fridge was shut off and left for a while the cooling had come back . If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
If after about 6 hours you observe cooling it is possible that the defrost timer is faulty.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
replace the defrost timer, heater or thermostat one you have confirmed to eliminate one by one.

GE Profile - Fridge Doesn't Cool But Freezer Works Fine


Had a similar problem with my Kenwood Fridge Freezer
If you're mechanically minded you could check if there's an opening and motorised flap (usually behind a cover) at the top of the fridge - Cold air from the freezer enters the fridge through this flap) The Sound you heard could have been the motor trying to open / close this flap. This flap can become frozen in the closed position - so cold air is unable to enter the fridge compartment) My fix was to thaw it with a hairdryer and reassemble. Another fix would be to empty the freezer and open the doors - it might take more than 24 hours but once completely defrosted if the flap is the issue it will have defrosted. Once plugged in again the door will open and cold air will start to flow into the fridge compartment. I had a quote for €195 for a call out / repair
I fixed it myself in an hour - Hope it works for you ...

Kenore elite bottom freezer, top fridge stopped cooling


first check that you can hear a fan in the freezer..if the fan is running you have a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. The defrost systems is:
HEATER-DEFROST
THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
TIMER-DEFROST
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

American fridge/freezer, over the last week the freezer compartment has melted ice? Today decided to remove all food from the freezer compartment - cleaned it out leaving the freezer and fridge...


  • yes, refrigerators have heaters in them to defrost the buildup of frost around the coils
  • they defrost approx. every 12-16 hours
  • if the defrost cycle gets stuck then it will continue to heat
  • i have seen it melt the plastic inside the refrigerator

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad thermo switch in freezer
  • i would replace both as they are not expensive
