I was defrosting my bosch cooler the other day and now it wont work. I read that these fridge freezers sometime get stuck in defrost mode, do you know how to stop this?
I have tryed turning off the fridge and looking behind it, but I havent a clue what to do.
Please help me.
When I open our fridge there is no light, I tried to fix it by taking it out but suddenly the lamp spark. what do you think our bosch cooler is damage? or only the light that has to be replaced. I would appreciate so much if you can give me a response the soonest possible time. Thank you very much...

Re: Bosch Cooler is broken
Im taking it that the cooler you refer to is actually a general fridge. if its not working, it is either your th/stat which has not reset or if not, assuming your fridge is an auto defrost, look behind the freezer and locate the timer. you should see a plastic knob plus/minus in the middle of the timer. turn the knob and listen if refrigerator comes on. if not call a tech.

Simply defrosting the freezer might solve your problem. Sometimes ice can form on the fan or fan motor, and of course, prevents the fan from turning.
If there is ice here, your refrigerator isn't defrosting properly. This sounds like a defrost problem that may need a part replaced. Check out this site for details and photos. Refrigerator Defrost Parts
Once the fridge is shut OFF for few hours to defrost and then switched ON , if the fridge works with cooling , then the fault is with the AUTO DEFROST TIMER or the circuit -maybe the heater, break in the lines to the timer, heater, the fan.
The build up frost will block the flow of cool air to the fridge from the freezer evaporator.
So remove and check.
Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...
Well nobody came up with any other options so I guess it's just defrost a "nonfrosting" fridge every three months or so, just like the old days.
No progress here then in spite of advances? in technology.
In your case I will need to assume that your model is a typical refrigerator with a defrost control and these type have parts that are made up of the major parts for the auto defrost. Auto defrost has a most likely problem found in the timer or electronic defrost control. These are most times found inside the fresh food section and behind the temperature control panel in the photo below marked a E and in that photo it shows a defrost timer in lower arrow and a electronic defrost control in the upper arrow. The next most likely problem would be the defrost heater and defrost thermostat found in the rear of the freezer compartment. Sounds like the defrost system has failed. Most Brand models We are able to handle here in the USA but your model is made ih the UK and I have tried my best to Have your dealers provide me information about parts replacement. A refrigerator is a Refrigerator and that is a fact but your models is designed for your local voltage 220 volt at 50 cycles That is normal home voltage in most countries except th USA. Our voltage for an appliance is 120 volts at 60 cycles so all the electrical components ar different and made different for different countries. When I request parts or diagrams from the UK I am always rejected. Then given a local repair center to service the brand of appliance.
Hi: It shouldn't need a recharge as your freezer is cold, and that's wher the fresh food section gets its cold from via a fan. If your vents are blocked with too much food in the freezer this will happen. If you have a problem with the defrost heater or timer frost will build and block the port to the fan, causing a warm fresh food section. If the circulating fan is out your f.f. section will get warm. It's a small fan not to be confused with the condenser fan below (at the grill.) Here's a question for you. Did the fresh food compartment work for the first week or two? That's how long it would take frost to build and jam the system if your defrost system is out. If this is the case you can unplug it and put your food in a cooler. Melt the frost with a hair dryer carefully avoiding plastic components. It will then work for a week or two before it fails again. It will get you buy until you get service. If you do it yourself... Look for the defrost heater in the freezer and see if the coil of wire in the glass tube is broken. You will need a service manuals or a parts list with a diagram. Sears parts on line has a good database of parts and diagrams. Hope this helped, Jeff
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.
A defrost is more than likely necessary. Shut it off at the control and open the door. Also the little drawer or pan under the freezer compartment sometimes will have a baffle that can be raised or lowered to provide more or less air circulation. For a cooler refrigerator you would open the baffle, and for a warmer refrigerator temperature you would close the baffle for less air and warmer temperature.
