Question about Bosch Refrigerators
SOURCE: I have a Bosch fridge
hi thanks for the question the drain from the freezer to the drain pan is clogged up now with these new fridges the drain hose goes between the outside and inside wall of the fridge so the only way to clear the drain is to shut the fridge down with the doors open to allow the ice to thaw buy yourself a small plastic hose from hardware store and after it has thawed go to the drain tube at the back near the drain tray and blow into the tube to clear this should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc

This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.
Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

3 things defrost heater, defrost timer or defrost limit thermostat.
You can pull the cover inside the freezer exposing the evaporator coils,
look for the defrost heater at the bottom of the coils. Test for continuity.
Find the defrost limit thermostat, a 2" metal disc attached to the evap coil usually on the side towards the top has two wires going in and will have continuity only when it is cold. If those are good probably the defrost timer.

If you take all the drawers out of the freezer - you will find 8 screws with 'bolt type' heads - 2 top, 4 at sides and 2 to the bottom.
Turn the power off. Undo all these screws and remove the rear panel. You will notice the 'gubbins' of the freezer. At the bottom you should notice there is a shaped plate with some piping running around and then up into the cooling 'radiator'. Towards the middle left of the plate there should be a hole - this is the drain hole. Is it blocked with a 'slug' of ice! Yes is my guess. This needs defrosting as will the rear panel you took out by any guess.
I did ours this morning as the fridge freezer was making a heck of a racket. Took about 30 minutes with the wife's hairdryer - and I'm no expert.
I just enjoy the fact I'd probably saved £50 plus on a callout.

Open the freezer compartment and listen for the fan motor if you don't hear it but you can hear the compressor running. youll need to first make sure that the door switch is working( If the lights go off when you press the button it should be okay). You'll need to remove the back panel and inspect the coils if frosted over evenly and the fan still is not working give the fan a little push. if it will not go, you need to see if it has voltage if so, replace the fan. If no check the defrost terminator which only on amanas will keep the fan off. In this case replace the defrost terminator(it look about like 5 quarters, with 2 wires clipped through the evaprator coils in back of freezer.
