    Fridge is cold at the bottom, the knob influences a flap behind the duct at the back og#f the fridge, I believe there is no aiflow from the frezer up to the fridge, as there appears to be no cooling plate in the fridge. Is there a fan in the freezer?

We have this model and had the same problem. It turns out that the ducts which move the cold air from the freezer to the fridge become blocked with ice. The solution was to turn the fridge off for a day or so, let it defrost completely and then turn it on again.
The bad news is that it will do this every 6 months or so... Fixable every time though

I have this model and am having the same problem. Bosch don't want to know as it is out of warranty.
This means that a perfectly good freezer has to be thrown away because the fridge won't work properly.
Don't buy Bosch.

    I tried that a number of times, but got fed up of the inconvenience.


    After a number of phone calls to Bosch it seems this is a known fault and there is a modification and after waiting best part of a week for an engineer it is now fixed, hopefully for good.


    They did not do a recall as they thought 'They had all been fixed'

Not cold enough. freezer works but fridge wont stay cold. i can shut it off for a day and it will work for two more. after that it quits again.


It you have a frost free fridge, then what is happening is that either the defrost element or the thermostat is faulty, causing ice to build up and block off cold air circulation to the fridge. Sometimes the frost builds up around the circulation fan and ceases it up.

That is why when you turn the fridge off for a day, the frost melts and drains out the back of your fridge and so the fridge works ok for a few days until the frost build up again.

Another thing to watch out for is the defrost timer. Sometimes they fail and stick on one cycle and dont advance through. pull your fridge out. The timer is located in the back near the compressor. There is normally a small dial on it. With the fridge turned off, you can twist the dial clockwise and you will hear the timer mechanism click through the different cycles. Make small ink mark on the timer dial. Say at 12 oclock. Turn fridge on. Chech the fridge every couple of hours and see if the mark advances through and does not get stuck in one position for lengthy periods of time. The defrost cycle should normally be around 8 hours and it repeats again.

Let me know if you need more help with the defrost element or thermostat. But it is best to get an experienced repairer to change those.

Good luck

My freezer is working fine but refrigerator is not as much cold as it is suppose to be. Is there is a trip button somewhere I can check.


Could be a couple things. Turn freezer dial control to suggested setting---usually 5. turn fridge dial up. if you set the freezer dial to a higher number it will divert more air to freezer, turning down will divert more to fridge.
Clean coils in back or under fridge.
Is ice building up in freezer?
Are your door gaskets sealing?

Hello sewing6
Welcome,


You said,

Try turning the fridge and the freezer off at the controls.
Then turning off the breaker for the fridge for 5 minutes .
then turn the breaker back on and restart the fridge and freezer!
This should reset the system and solve your problem.
let me know how it goes.

Thank You,
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating! Hopefully a "solved "one.

Freezer staying cold but fridge is getting hot


More likely than not there is a blockage of ice bettween the freezer and the refridgerator. most fridges work to get the freezer cold as a priority.Then the cold freezer air is circulated throughout the rest of the unit to keep the fridge cold. Thats why you may hear a fan running in the fridge unit while the compressor is not on. Unplug and open the doors to warm the inside. Look at the plastic piece bettween the two units and remove. See if there is ice build up and use a hair dryer to melt, dry area out and restart the unit by plugging back in or turning temp dial. Hope this helps.
