Question about AEG Santo 7085 KG Side by Side Refrigerator
Have an AEG S7388KG fridge, approx 2 years old bought new. 2 weeks ago it stopped working, we changed the fuse and it appeared to be working again. It was OK until a couple of days ago when I noticed the food in the fridge was at room temperature and the freezer had defrosted. The internal lights are working. I switched it on and off again and it seemed to start working, I could hear it hum. It has now stopped working and I can't hear any noise when I turn it on. Please help!
This sounds like your fridge has a leak somewhere and it slowly discharged its refrigerant. the compressor can sustain damage when there is no refrigerant and often will hum and eventually fail. Sorry but you may need a new compressor - if you were going to replace the fridge soon anyway then i would go ahead, but a compressor and the labour to fit it etc may be cheaper than a new fridge - you need a refrigeration repair man/shop (if you can take the fridge to a repair shop it will always be cheaper than calling a guy to your house) Sorry i can't really help, but the symptoms are classic, if you are lucky then a technician may be able to fix the leak and restart the compressor, but not always if you want to try something yourself just try tapping the compressor smartly but not too hard with the end of a dry wooden or plastic stick or similar with the fridge plugged in. the compressor is the thing at the bottom in the back that looks a bit like a small fuel tank, should be right in the middle and will be the largest thing in there. Just be careful not to break any copper tubes or touch any wires. Sometimes a stuck compressor can be freed this way, but you will almost certainly still need the leak fixing and a refill of refrigerant. Sorry about the bad news :( Hope this helps :)
