DO NOT buy this fridge/freezer. We have decided after 6 years to ditch!! First sign of problem was before the 2 year warranty period was up, fortunately, and Bosch sent a technician to sort out. But since we have been out of the warranty period, the problems have persisted: the defrost unit regularly stops working causing the fridge fan to sieze. (read more)

I have owned this fridge/freezer for 5 years and have found that it needs to be defrosted every 4 to 6 months. It is described as frost-free but clearly isn't. The fridge is cooled by a fan that circulates cold air from the freezer cooling unit. The freezer cooling unit ices up regularly and the ice starts blocking the fan. This results in a loud noise as the fan hits the ice and, if left, the fan gets completely blocked by the ice and stops turning (and the fridge then gets warm as no cool...(read more)

Have had the Bosch Classix fridge freezer for a while and yes, I agree with other reviews: it's too loud, it freezes up all the time in no time at all, drawers are difficult to use in the freezer AND ours also gather water at the bottom of the fridge constantly, then it freezes up. Rubbish. (read more)

Bought the fridge second hand 4 years ago. The fridge is huge. Ample space in freezer. The freezer drawers occasionally stick but you hardly notice. None are broken as reported in other reports. I suspect others are a bit heavy handed and over load the drawers. The fridge is in direct sunlight in our kitchen and in the hottest summer days it does struggle a bit. Have too have it on maximum chill. The only complaint is the fan motor is a bit noisy. Only notice it when your in silence, no kids... (read more)

Was looking up some details of this fridge and saw all the bad reviews so I thought I would add that I have had this fridge for 5 years with not a single issue. The frost free mechanism can make a few clicks when it is reheating but otherwise fine. Not the largest freezer but you can see what you get. It looks pretty good - pretty much what I would expect from Bosch (read more)

We've had one for less than 4 years and the freezer department freezes up (supposed to be frost free) and the fridge warms up - have defrosted three times but still no good. Bosch want £89 just to come and look at it plus parts so for what is likely to be more than £100 we'll probably get a cheaper competitors (Beko seem to be OK for the money). PS - heard through the grapevine that because its Bosch it's not necessarily made in Germany or that the parts are German - can't tell where... (read more)

Same issues with the fan making an annoying noise - replaced by Bosch, then the freezer would only maintain -5 degrees.
Draws stick - then when you get them to open they unstick so quickly that they fall on the ground breaking and spilling contents.
Absolute rubbish. I will AVOID BOSCH from now on! (read more)

I bought one of these bosch classixx fridge/freezers in Dec 2007 within two weeks it was very noisy an engineer came and replaced the motor. The fridge has no temperature gauge and now in Aug 2009 is not working.The freezer is too small,the drawers are difficult to pull out,all in all badly constructed and of poor quality, not what you would expect from Bosch but then i had a Bosch washing machine and that only lasted 3 years! Don,t buy it,s absolute rubbish. (read more)

When I first bought this fridge, the fan was noisy and after 18 months the fridge stopped working. The frost-free tag on the front is a myth and when I called Bosch, an engineer came out (for free) to put right what he told me was a known design fault with the defrost control unit and replaced the fan. After leaving, the fridge still did not work and the engineer came out again the same week to fix it.
About 12 months later the same problem has resurfaced. The fridge is cooled by air... (read more)

Hello.. We are in west Sussex in southern England, UK. I have a Bosch KGN33V00GB F/F, ( fridge at the top / smaller freezer at the bottom ), for nearly 18 months... as soon as I turned it on back then, it made a terrible noise... could hear it all over the house and so I had the motor changed, ( this is in the top of the freezer compartment and looked like a white small unit / fan / all in one set of controls ), but now we heard some terrible gurgling coming from it over the weekend and...

Bought one of these fridge/freezers about 18 months ago. The first one from Comet was broken upon delivery and full refund given by Comet. I should have stopped there but ordered another from Coop Electrical which did work.
The fan in the fridge is noisy, which doesn't bother us because it is a utility room but don't put it in your kitchen. The biggest problem is that although advertised as a frost free freezer this isn't true. It needs regular defrosting if you want to keep the freezer door... (read more)
