Question about AEG Santo 7085 KG Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

AEG fridge/freezer isn't working

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 :)

Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

check to see if you have a drain at back/near bottom of the fridge,if so, clean out with neat clorine bleach.if you have a fridge thermometer adjust fridge to run at +5c(optimum temp) and cover all food with cling film to cut down on condensation.

Probably be cheaper to get new one, it has probably had the compressor fail or a leak in the cooling system.

I bought a Zanussi ZF4 fridge/freezer second hand about two weeks ago. When I installed it I made sure that it was left to stand for 12 hours before turning on and that it was cleaned thoroughly. The unit...


It is possible that it is the thermostat, and if not as you hear the compressor starting shortly then stopping, and redoing that many times.
Your compressor is certainly out of order and must be replaced by a professional, that means to dessolder the current compressor, and replace it with the new one, and change the gas.
So major intervention and at least 2 hours of work.
In the end, you will have a new heart for this great fridge.

LG French door fridge freezer not freezing


hopefully you looked out back ...rear lower panel and checked little white condenser fan running...it really needs too to keep temp stable across the condenser coils and no overheat condition to the compressor.hopefully you wont need the $300 circuit board like I just bought
