There is no ice on the back wall of the freezer but the pipes down the edges look to be covered in ice.
Model is:- Bosch Classic XX Frost Free. Max XX Freedom performance.
Age:- No idea. Was in previous house when I bought it 2009.
therefore must be at least 8 yrs.
Please explain the controls over the top
super-max -22, -20, -18, -16. oC
super +2, +4, +6, +8. oC
Which applies to fridge and which to the freezer sections
My guess is the minus temperatures are the freezer and the plus temperatures are for the fridge.

the way those work, Super max is extremely cold, when you set that ON, it will come on for a while just to cool the unit fast. Then that will drop out and it goes back to normal operations.

The temps you listed, are pickable settings, usually 0 is fine or if you want it really cold, you can set it to -16.

If you can get me the full modle # I can get you a user manual;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete please rate my service kindly.
