Bosch Fridge/Freezer Compressor

21 posts in this topic

Hello there

 

Just found this forum via Google, and read a lot of the posts before starting a thread in case I could save people's time. But I am sh*t and can't so here goes.

 

The compressor on my Bosch Fidge Freezer has started to give problems.

 

Reading the page here

 

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2005/12/01/refrigerator-warming-up-and-makes-an-occasional-clicking-noise/

 

it does sound like the relay is causing the issue, as when I give it a tap with the end of a screwdriver it fires straight up and runs no problem. But when I kill the power and switch back on I get the clicking noise.

 

Problem is I do not know which parts I need. Hopefully I can buy them from here, if you ship to UK

 

So here are a few photos in the hope someone can determine which parts I need to order.

That's the bimetal overload.  Must be sticking.  What's your model number and I'll check on a part number.

I do believe that's a Euro model, you will have a hard time finding those parts in the states.

Complete starter relay with overload. Part number 032035. According to B/S/H, that part is not for sale in the United States.

Could you tell me where you found the part number please, does it have a manufacturer?

I work on BSH and have access to there services website. BSH is one of those companies that only allows access to authorized servicers.

Ah I see. I did find this link that shows the PCB and lists a lot of other models it will fit, so I might search on some of these as well if the parts are interchangeable

I would never buy parts from EBay or Amazon. There have been many post about the problems with these parts. Unless you are buying OEM parts from an authorized part dealer who just happens to have an EBay or Amazon store. I don't know what Country you're in but, if I were in your position, I would find out who repairs them and contact them to see where they get their parts from and go from there.

Over in the UK. Finding parts for most things over here is not easy which is why whenever possible I like to deal with companies in the US as the customer care and availability of parts is excellent

Air conditioners use a similar overload but yours looks pretty specific as far as terminal location in the mounting bracket.  I agree with Brother Spanner.  Should be able to locate the entire start device through a local servicer using the part number provided.  Cheers mate!

Amazing, found one over here

 

www.ezee-fix.co.uk/product/default.aspx?act=s∂=BSH032035&shop=bosch

 

Works out to about $79 US, which is probably more than it costs in the US, but they have one so all is good.

 

Excellent forum and many thanks once again, really appreciate all the help

Part is being delivered tomorrow. Just a quick question. When swapping it do I need to ground the capacitor?

No, these run capacitors are small and really don't hold a charge the way they are used.

Not sure what you're trying to post here, Brother Spanner, but been seeing these little boxes appearing in some of your recent posts, as though you intended to post something that didn't come through.

Looks like three set of hands clapping or six chickens copulating.  Pretty sure they're hands clapping.

Interesting!  After your report, Brother PDuff, I checked this topic again using Safari and saw the images.  In Chrome, they just appear as little squares.  Must be posting this using emojji on his phone.
