Just want to say a massive thank you to rwsummers and kikka mikko for posting those links to the x2 capacitor solution. Cost me 68 pence in a trade electronics shop (but if you're in the UK Maplin have 1uf caps for about 3 quid and there are those stores in most major cities. The solder job took about 6 minutes and the fridge now works like new! One in the eye for AEG - gangsters. Many Thanks again

I guess this is a problem with other santo models that use a similar circuit board. Change the 1 uf 250v capacitor as in the article santo-fix.html" target=_blank rel=nofollow>http://www.elisanet.fi/mtj/santo/AEG-santo-fix.html
Also cures intermittent no compressor start, due to relay not holding. Causing rise in temperature.

I similarly would like to thank rwsummers and kikka mikko for posting those links. Having bought the fridge S3688-6KA sometime in 2003, I had the PCB replaced for the first time in Aug 2007 at a total cost of £223.50 !! inc labour. This time I really didn't want to have to do the same, so tried the solution above. So far so good, I bought the capacitor (N74CN) , a soldering iron and some solder for £16.30 so have already saved more than £200 and it seems to be working fine now (touch wood).
Btw I am a housewife who has never soldered anything before :-) !!

Refrigerator engine also generally reluctant to turn it on only when the lights blink.
