Question about Bosch Appliances 20.19 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hi, My Bosch Model B20CS50 SNI/01 side by side

Hi, My Bosch Model B20CS50 SNI/01 side by side refrigerator/freezer is not freezing completely on the freezer side and consequently the ice maker is not making ice because the temperature wont go low enough. I have the setting on the door panel set to -6 degrees (the coldest setting). 3 days ago after reading the troubleshooting guide in the owners manuel, I defrosted the unit by emptying the freezer and unplugging for aprox 10-12 hours. The problem is still there. The ice cubes won't freeze. I notice some frost / ice forming on the back inside panel in the center behind the middle shelf and things in the bottom of the freezer seem to be more frozen than things at the top. The unit is aprox 3 years old. Any ideas? Thanks, -Jeff

It sounds like the fridge is in need of a regas, but that seems unlikely after only three years, although not impossible. An indication of that would be if the compressor could be heard to be running all the time. If it cuts out after running only a short time it could be the thermostat that has gone faulty.

Freezer compartment works okay but refrigerator compartment gets warm. Pulled bottom shelves and noticed ice build-up. Not sure of the problem. Any ideas and solutions?


Hi, it sounds like the thermostat for the refrigerator is not shutting off and just continuing to cool to the point of freezing . You need to get it checked out and renewed .

I have a Jenn air side by side refrig/freezer


Hi rdiorio.
you could have one of many faults, either thermostat, compressor or if electronic maybe that have failed. If the Thermostat starts to fail it can produce eratic readings which freezer the chiller part of cabinet, then it can fail completly. What ever you do remember 240 Volts kills. Use a qualified person when dealing with electrics... Cheers

Bosch KGV24V01GB Fridge Freezer - Model has Auto defrost feature but freezer section is all iced up. What do I do?


Hi,

Try increasing the temperature of the freezer (closer to -5) for a few days. It could be you have it too cold.

At certain times it should feel warm in some places on the sides, or you may hear a fan running. If you don't get this, there may be a fault in the defrost circuit, timer or fan.

Make sure vents are clear, and that door seals are in good condition. A faulty door seal admits warm damp air which then freezes.

Where is the ice forming?
