Question about Bosch Refrigerators

Open Question

We have a Bosch built in Fridge freezer model number KIM29473GB/02 (FD8410) and we came home after a couple of days away to find it making a strange noise, ie the motor is trying to start up, you hear a little judder and then it just dies. Then a couple of secs later it tries again and dies again, this was just continuing on and on. The temp selection light was flashing on and off inside the fridge and we couldn't change the temp selection with the selection button. For now we have switched it off and are defrosting it. Any ideas? Thanks

SOURCE: AEG fridge/freezer isn't working

This sounds like your fridge has a leak somewhere and it slowly discharged its refrigerant. the compressor can sustain damage when there is no refrigerant and often will hum and eventually fail. Sorry but you may need a new compressor - if you were going to replace the fridge soon anyway then i would go ahead, but a compressor and the labour to fit it etc may be cheaper than a new fridge - you need a refrigeration repair man/shop (if you can take the fridge to a repair shop it will always be cheaper than calling a guy to your house) Sorry i can't really help, but the symptoms are classic, if you are lucky then a technician may be able to fix the leak and restart the compressor, but not always if you want to try something yourself just try tapping the compressor smartly but not too hard with the end of a dry wooden or plastic stick or similar with the fridge plugged in. the compressor is the thing at the bottom in the back that looks a bit like a small fuel tank, should be right in the middle and will be the largest thing in there. Just be careful not to break any copper tubes or touch any wires. Sometimes a stuck compressor can be freed this way, but you will almost certainly still need the leak fixing and a refill of refrigerant. Sorry about the bad news :( Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: We have a Samsung Fridge,

sounds like the motor is bad. if you have a warranty have him change it regardless if he thinks it is bad. the motor should not be noisy. If no warranty then have him check motor very good. also low refrigerant charge as well as it running too long can freeze it up and stop the fan. most refrigerators are designed to be against the wall this can be a factor in a freeze condition. I hope this helps you!

We have a Bosh KIM29473GB for some time water has been collecting in the bottom tray of the fridge and only takes a few days to fill up, this weekend the freezer stopped working and now nothing works.


If you hear a click every few minutes and a buzz / click then nothing, it would sound as if your compressor is gone, the water problem is the defrost drain pipe is blocked

Kenmore classic bottom freezer refrigeration warm but freezer is cold


I would guess you have just caused a build up of ice to block the air way, which normally takes cold air into the fridge. manually defrost (unplug and wait until the ice goes away) then restart and it should be fine

Ice built up in the frost free freezer section


It sounds like the freezer fan(evaporator) is wearing out. This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but no fast enough to circulated the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The parts and labor are around $300.00

Bosch KIM29473GB refrigerator lights on but no refridgeration


it sound more like the compressor is faulty siezed up
if so it will try to work then trip on the compressor overheat it will rest for about three to five minutes then try again
if this is happening it almost certainly eliminates the stat if the stat was faulty the compressor would not try to start compressor expensive to replace and time consuming would take about two hours
Good luck

Lights on no refrigeration


This may be caused by the thermostat being faulty. To be sure you need to find someone with a volt meter who can check that power is in fact reaching the compressor (freon canister). If it is getting power, then it is possible that the compressor has failed and would need replacing.

We have the Bosch kgn34x60 fridge freezer and the fridge wont stay cold. The dial is turned to 5. Any ideas on what might be the problem????? had it less than ayear and the freezer is fine


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.
