SOURCE: Bosch oven door does not close tightly, takes FOREVER to heat

All you need to do is replace the oven door hinges. as the springs are weak.
It is a fairly straight forward repair to do.
To obtain new hinges, got to:

SOURCE: Bosch fridge not cooling freezer fine

if back wall of freezer has ice or thick build up you may have a defrost problem or if not the evaporator fan motor could be bad, not moving cold air from freezer to refrigerator.

SOURCE: Bosch Classixx fridge / freezer

Hi - experienced this myself and spent ages trying to get to the bottom of it - only found one post but it worked and was absolutely clear on the cause nb: i'm not an "expert" !

My understanding of how the Bosch f/f works is that the freezer compartment generates the cold air for the fridge which is regulared at the fridge end . At the back of my fridge there are two "vents" which feed up this cold air up from the freezer into the fridge.

Problem happened to me because I left the freezer door slightly ajar which generated a massive amount of frost (sucking in the moist air from the house I guess then freezing it) and subsequent ice froze up the cooling ducts between the freezer and the fridge. Therefore, no matter how much I turned up the fridge thermo it never got cool. Only solution was to dump my frozen at a mates house and defrost the the FREEZER for a good 24 hrs +.

Worked tho' - fridge was completely back to normal.

PS: I understand this issue may also happen if you put too much unfrozen food into the freezer at one go and in working overtime to get it frozen causing a massive frost up again.

SOURCE: Freezer temp on GE profile

This is by design. It should be warm. This is where the heat exchanger is located to save space.

No worries.... right now it is being over-worked until it reaches operating temp.

How to take doors off Bosch Exxcel KGH39A07GB


I've just had to do this - a real pain, and you would think that Bosch would include it in the instructions or somewhere on their website!

You have to put the fridge/freezer on its back (putting a cushion or something like that at the top to make sure the back doesn't get damanged). Starting at the bottom, unscrew the three bolts holding the bottom door in place, then the middle hinge between the fridge and freezer, and then the screws at the top holding the fridge door in place. Then reverse everything round (you may have to make holes where there are dimples on the top of the freezer door/bottom of the fridge door). Good luck!

Bosch intelligent frost free 88


We have the same and I think it is because the freezer door bounces open when we shut the fridge door. Then the freezer compartment ices up, the fan clogs up with ice and cannot blow cold air into the fridge, and the fridge gets warm and the milk goes off.
Solution? We have bought one of those child safety clips (search for fridge safety clip or lock) to hold the freezer door closed.
Simple design error. Expected better from Bosch :-(

When doors are opened it stops. Ice is forming unnaturally in the


It sounds like you may have a bad evaporator fan motor or broken blade.

Another cause could be a failed defrost system component. The would cause a build up of ice and frost and the fan blade could be coming in contact with the frost or ice.

The fan stops running when the doors are opened on this model to prevent the circulation of warm air.

Hello mathsmike,
Welcome to fixya,


You said,We have a relatively new Bosch fridge-freezer. It has started chuntering away like a motor-bike in the corner of the room. It falls silent if either door is opened. Sometimes it falls quiet and runs sweetly for hours before starting this racket again. Any ideas?

What is the Complete model number and the date you bought the fridge!

It sounds like it may be a faulty fan or fan clutch from here, if it's not something else very simple!

Send me the info requested and do a repair search for you !
Waiting for your response!
Huuum




Here are some common noise problems till I look your unit up
!

1.Check that the fridge is level, using a spirit level!
2. Appliance is touching some other unit or appliances, or counter or wall.
3. Drawers, baskets,or storage ares are loose, or sticking!
4.Receptacles or bottles are touching. Move them away from each other,
ESPECIALLY ON THE DOOR,because it's quiet when the doors are open!
