There are a couple things that could cause this. The compressor start device could have just gone out. This is the part that directly connects to the compressor. If it rattles when you shake it it is more than likely bad. The defrost control in the control panel could have gone bad but this is rare. The thermostat itself could have gone bad. This is probable.

If the compressor is running then the start device is OK but it may not be pumping. There are several variables. With out further information it is difficult to diagnose further.

It should be left still for 24 hours before being turned on after moving it.

    It should be left still for 24 hours before turning on if it was not left in an upright position while you were moving it.

My ffride was working perfectly. I turned it off to clean it. When I turned it back on the compresser would not start. Any suggestions ?


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Hi,
Here is a tip that I wrote on moving refrigerators...if you did not do it thisway then you may well have ruined a perfectly good refrigerator.

Moving a Refrigerator What is thebest way

If you already have moved it wrong, you can sometimes get it working byplugging it in and unplugging it a number of times with an hour or so inbetween.

We have the Bosch kgn34x60 fridge freezer and the fridge wont stay cold. The dial is turned to 5. Any ideas on what might be the problem????? had it less than ayear and the freezer is fine


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.
