Frost problems on the two top drawers of the freezer

My AEG Santo 70342KG Bottom Freezer Refrigerator is 5 years old. Since last year, the top two drawers of the freezer has major frost which makes it difficult or impossible to open. Is there anything I can do to defrost or fix this problem? Should I call a repair person?

You can manually defrost the unit with a shop vac that has a attachment that will direct the outlet air to the problem but that is just a temporary fix, the main problem is that moist air is getting into the freezer either from the gasket or somewhere else. Try the dollar bill test on the gasket to see if its bad. This is how to do it,you take and put the money between the gasket and the refrigerator and close the door. If you can pull out the dollar real easy the it's time to replace the gaskets. if there's resistance from the gasket then they are ok. From there you can decide if you want to call out a service tech or attempt the repair your self. Thank you for using FixYa.

The door handle has become loose and I want to know how to tighten it


They are two hinges one at the top and the other at the bottom. Use a philips screw driver to tighten two screws at the top and two at the bottom. The bottom screws require a dumpy screw driver (short).

LG French door bottom freezer unit is only 5 years old. Bottom freezer suddenly not keeping food frozen. Ice cubes are melting, ice cream is soft, and there is water on bags of frozen food in top basket...


You have a defrost condensate drain blockage where all the water from defrost remains inside the freezer compartment and causes the symptons you are having. I cannot tell you how to remove every model numbers freezer rear panel but I think that if you study over my link here=> Leaking Refrigerators and this link HERE you will get an idea of what to do.

Refrigerator is warm, but freezer is cold and still making ice. This is a 3 year old Amanna Bottom Freezer model. There is frost in the top of the freezer drawer when I putt it out.


you will need to defrost it. the freezer is what keeps your fridge cool. the vent where the cool air goes up to your fridge is sealed or frozen.
unplug the fridge and open the doors and let it defrost.
plug it back in after a few hours and it should be working again.

AEG Santo 3778-8 KA Temperature Problem


hi tracy, think its possibly better getting a repair guy in as this fault is not streight forward. possibly a fault in the defrost circuit, or freezer fan not functioning, or possibly a leak in the system. all theese areas need testing equiptment.

Bottom freezer not staying cold


One of two things. When you open the freezer drawer, do you hear a fan running? If not, that's the problem. The Evaporator fan. Its' job is to circulate cold air throughout the entire cabinet. Without it, things get toasty. If not the Evap Fan, it'll be the sealed system... meaning that it's developed a leak and freon is escaping (not harmful for you or your Family). If it's just under 5 years old, this will be a warranty repair. Over 5? Bad news... it'll cost ALOT to have it repaired.
