I have a Bosch fridge/freezer, about 5 years old. Yesterday morning it indicated the temperature control of both compartments was raised. The back of the fridge was a bit snowy instead of frosty - but the food as cold as usual. The freezer was NOT full of snow. (I had had guests and wondered if it could have been left open all night, but both lots of evidence suggested not.) I unplugged and plugged it in again and waited half an hour. The temps both started down again. I switched the freezer to "super" and it went gradually right down. QUERY 24 hours later the freezer shows -25 deg, which looks too low, compared with I think the usual 18 deg. The fridge compartment is at the usual 4 deg. Please could you comment on the freezer?

Hi Michael. Thanks. The model number might be KGU34124GB? (Should it rather be E 153?)There are so many on the plate, which as usual is in a very awkward place to see! There is no frost on the rear freezer wall. I don't know if the fan is running. I hear a mild hum from the back of the appliance.
Thanks for your advice so far, Michael. There are two things to say at once. A) why would the freezer then be showing so much colder, not warmer, than I expect? MINUS 25 deg, not plus. B) I shall have to get someone to do the fan for me if I need one. I am disabled and only have the use of one arm. Please discuss the fan further. I've never been aware of a "loud" fan noise on opening the freezer compartment, only the high-pitched warning beep if the door is open for a few seconds. Janet
I can hear a clear whirring sound, as I said, from the back of the appliance. It never has come from inside the freezer and has not changed. I feel your fan advice must be still in question. My only concern is why the freezer temperature is SO LOW. Can that mean a faulty fan? I am not quite happy yet. Please stick with this. Thanks.
Sorry Michael, NOTHING fits with what you tell me. There never was a fan noise in the freezer section. There is no light to switch on and off. There is no frost at all visible. All the food is solidly cold, incl for instance ice cream. It just says MINUS 25 deg, which is a change. You're telling me correct things your experience tells you and of course mine doesn't, but none of the conditions I see fit them. Oh dear! I'm not feeling this is working. I'm not going to worry about that low temp and carry on I think.
I'm very embarrassed to be such a nuisance, but PLEASE tell me how what you advise fits with the food being very cold, not less cold? You have not yet answered that question.
