    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine for five years until $700 just in partsFridge was installed in a renovated home. Unit lasted for about 5 years then the ice maker heating element failed. Ice maker unit is 250. Other manufacturer's charge 50. Compressor relay board failed, 450. Reliability might be an issue, in addition to extremely high mark up on replacement components.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HorribleThis refrigerator has been a huge disappointment. I did not bother to read the reviews because it was a Bosch product and I am paying for that transgression! The fan noise is unbearable, the ice maker and water dispenser stopped working after 2 years. The shelves slice the rubber seal on the fridge...I could go on and on, but will suffice it to say, this fridge is a horrible product. I probably could not give it away.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from over engineered under performerWe bought this Bosch refrigerator 1/5/15. We were remodeling our kitchen and chose Bosch/Thermador appliances because of the their reputations and our excellent past experiences with their products. To start with, with all of the refrigerator's modes (vacation, Sabbath, Super, etc.), it requires frequent visits to the manual to figure out how to work it. Then after setting it up, it disregards the temperature settings and freezes produce and other items randomly when set at 37 F. The Bosch appliance repairman, when called to fix it, said to work with it and find what settings might work as there was a variance between the settings and actual temperature. Two days ago, 8/4/17, I heard a loud banging in my kitchen and rushed in to find the ice dispenser discharging all the ice all by itself. I couldn't make it stop. After depleting all the ice, it kept making a loud clacking noise and whirring noise as it continued to try to dispense ice. I went to the Bosch web site to get help and called to speak to a technician. I was told that unless I was a Bosch authorized repair facility, I could not speak with a technician. The earliest I could get a repairman was five days. Not wanting to unplug the unit that would leave me with un-refrigerated food, I was able to use wooden kitchen spoons, after removing the ice storage unit, to stop the clacking and whirring. This appliance as well as Thermador appliances under the same umbrella use electronics that are complicated and exceed reasonable expectations. I would not recommend either brand to anyone. They have made our kitchen remodel a nightmare.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from DissapointingPurchased this product approx. 6 years ago, and woke up to find both the freezer and refrigeration compartments of the unit not freezing/cooling. Difficult to find Bosch repair service and if you do, rather expensive service call.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Five years then out:(Sadly, as others have written, my Bosch refrigerator suddenly died after only five years of light use in a household of two adults. Purchased it new and within a couple of years the LED lights for the water dispenser began to flicker and eventually went out completely but everything else ran fine so we just went without the luxury of light when getting a glass of water. The other day we came home to an alarm beeping from the fridge. The panel reported that the freezer temperature had dropped. Opening the freezer door revealed that everything was warmed and thawed. The fridge side still was barely cool. I could hear the fan running when the door was closed but it was not cooling. We cooked everything we could but a lot of wasted food had to be thrown out. I came to this site looking for the product manual when I read all these bad reviews which unfortunately have been true of my experience as well. This was my first Bosch appliance and it is also the first refrigerator I have ever had fail. Rather than waste money and time with attempted repairs, I simply went to the local store and purchased a replacement delivered the next day. Bye-bye Bosch, you really let me down:(

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but......After almost four years the odd noises continue both while it is running and while idle and the dings in the thin stainless steel doors keep showing up. I clean the compressor coil 4 times a year due to the small round design and it takes over an hour due to the limited space and difficulty with access. the water filters are way overpriced so changing them is greatly reduced causing unhealthy water and ice. The water and ice fill do not work if the filter is removed. Interior cleaning is difficult due to bin re-installation and I am skilled with repair and maintenance of machines. Freezer space hard to work with even using vacu seal bags to reduce size of containers.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Automatic Ice Maker???The Use and Care Guide for this Bosch refrigerator clearly states that "when the ice cube container is full, ice making switches off automatically". After four service calls and the replacement of the fill valve assembly and the entire ice making unit, we were told by the service technician that no automatic shut-off exists in this model. We must now monitor the available capacity of the container and manually shut off the ice maker when full. Bosch has done nothing to make good the claim in their Care Guide. Needless to say, we are totally disappointed with this Bosch unit...
