Question about Bosch Freezers

1 Answer

We had the warning sound 2 days ago. The day after I found the freezer partially unfrozen. I find it will now work on the orange light but this does not go off and the green light will not show. Is it finished? Thank you.

Hi.

First ensure that the door is closing well, and that the door gasket is not hardened or broken.

The most common failure causing this symptoms is a defective defrost system. Try removing food and leaving the fridge disconnected overnight. This will reset and defrost the freezer. If problem gets fixed and restarts after few days or weeks, then you have a defective defrost system. If the problem persists immediately after defrost is done, then you may have a problem with the compressor (capacitor, relay or motor).
Some older Bosch chest freezers do not have auto defrost. In that case either the defrost will definitively fix the problem, or problem is compressor or gas.
In freezer with auto defrost the most common problem concerning defrost system is defective defrost thermostat.

Try performing a full defrost.

Regards.

Freezer losing temperature


Hi Julie. I'm Roger. It sounds like the operating thermostat is not working When not in the fast freeze mode. Can you here a click sound from the thermostat when turning the temperature up and down short of fast freeze? We normally charge them to operate at -10 to -20 degrees. The inside temperature will normally only reach a temperature around 18 degrees warmer. The operating thermostat should allow you to regulate its temperature any where from that capability up to where you want it. See if your thermostat makes a clicking sound when adjusted. The warning light comes on because it knows the box temperature is higher than it is set for and is warning you of that. If it uses a printed circuit (PC) board, the click will dot be very loud. listen closely. Let us know how this turns out for you. We have very good refrigeration techs. here. Someone else here may have an idea too.

The standby light is still on


Are you sure it is a standby light? Usually the orange light is showing you it is in fast freeze. Try switching the orange button off and monitor the temperature. The freezer should cycle on and off, not run continuously.

Why has my freezer stoped freezing. it is cold inside and the red warning light is on


The defrost heat element has failed or the fan unit has failed, either way it is easly diognosed and not too costly if you pick the right repairer.
If you turn the unit off for 2 days and defrost it total, then turn it back on, should work fine for 4-5 days then return to problem again, confirming my report, you can then tell repairer you are not stupid and hence, not get ripped off.....Russ

Have a 17 cu ft upright manual defrost freezer. Started to notice that items in door were soft a week ago. Warning light was on but the rest seemed ok. Today noticed a puddle from thawed meat. Sounds like...


Good day,
Serious problem. Either there is a freon leak or a restriction inside the tubing that carries the refrigerant.
Needs the attention of a pro.

Note. If the unit is under 5 years, leave it alone. It is still under factory warranty. Call for warranty service.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Water Dripping Inside


Sounds like a blocked defrost drain. By "American" I presume you mean side-by-side.
I had a similar problem with a freezer-on-top style Samsung. The solution to that was to defrost the freezer, remove the false backing plate in the freezer (required removal of the ice cube tray. the panel just pops out with a bit of pulling). The drain hole beneath the freezer coils was blocked with ice. This drain passes down into the fridge and then out the back of the fridge into the evaporation pan next to the motor. There is a collector pan under the freezer coils, this and the drain hole were filled with ice. When the freezer goes into its self-defrost cycle the water collects here and then overflows into the fridge.
I removed the ice with hot water/vinegar mixture (so it doesn't re-freeze immediately) and simultaneosuly used a bit of chiselling with a screwdriver to clear the drain plug. I did this from inside the fridge working up the drain hole into the freezer. The whole job took about an hour.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly


The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.

Philips whirlpool AFG 027 freezer


The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.
