Question about Bosch Refrigerators

1 Answer

My refrigerator Bosch stopped cooling on both sides The freezer and refrigerator is a side by side refrigerator model B22C80SNS/01. We had two technicians come and take a look at it. One said it was the inverter. We ordered the part and replaced it and still its not functioning. The other technician said it was the PC board located on top of the refrigerator and freezer. We ordered the parts and replaced them. It is still not working. It is a Pentane refrigerator and was bought a year and three months ago.This refrigerator was bought in Sears in San Juan Puerto Rico The first technician was from Sears but he said they had not been trained on repairing Bosch models. Any light you can shed to us will be welcome.

    Thank you for your answer, but unfortunately, the refrigerator was only warranted for a year.

Hello first thing if it was bought from sears and still under warranty it is there responsiblity to repair the unit it doesnt matter if one technician says he wasnt trained on repairing a bosch a refrigerator is a refrigerator first thing I would do is call sears back you paid how much for the unit that came with the warranty the sealed system is under there warranty policy and if that guy didnt know how to fix a bosch then they should of sent someone who did know how to work on one.If your unit you are positive is not under warranty message me back and I will instruct further on how to start checking your sealed system although without the proper tools to test the sealed system you are very limited to what you can check Thanks Rick

    one of the first things that you would need to do is assure that the compressor is turning on and the fan is running if the compressor is not turning on then you would need to check the small plastic piece that comes off the compressor known as the start relay here is a link showing how you would test the relay note this unit shown is older but the test is the same http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance... also assure that the rear fan that blows on the compressor is working as well unfortunatley if the start relay and overload and fan were all to check out in proper working condition then you would have no choice but to call a compressor technician if you still wanted to fix the unit the tools that you need to check the sealed system incudeing the gauges torch silver solder and copper line pieces would be to intricate for you to work on yourself also you have to have a refrigerant evacuation system in place as well if you have any further questions message me back and message me back with your finds on the start relay as well Thanks Rick

    p.s if you send me the model number i might be able to find a schematic showing you the start relay Thanks again

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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


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.
