Fixya will not let me post links today, or their "capcha" thing does not seem to be working properly, so I will have to try this another way.

I've done some research on your issue and it seems that should only happen if the temperature sensor goes bad, or the evaporator sensor. Each of the two parts cost less than 30 pounds each, so may be less expensive than tossing out the whole thing.

Try browsing to shop (dot) aeg (dot) co (dot) uk
Then in the search at the top right, type in "santo" and look for the two sensors and decide if it would be worth a try.

SOURCE: 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.

Check the damper between the fridge and freezer. It may be broken or frozen open. If this happens and you have a water reservoir in the fridge then it could freeze and crack - leak and then flood your house... Shut off the water supply until you get the problem fixed.

SOURCE: the fridge part of my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything,

Hello

I have the same problem and have talked to the manufacturer. They said to turn off the appliance for 24 hours then it should be good as new when you switch it back on. Obviously you'll have to find somewhere for your freezer contents. I'm going to try this myself tonight.

Fridge Reboot!

SOURCE: AEG Santo fridge not cooling but freezer is working.

The compressor is obviously still good or the freezer wouldn't work.I'm sure you checked the settings,but turn the freezer all the way up (hot)after it is cool so the unit doesn't come on for the freezer,then turn the refrigerator controls all the way down to the coolest setting.listen for the compressor to start,and/or the fans to run.If the compressor starts,and no fan there may be a problem with the fan.(this is a general test I'm not familiar with your specific unit which may not have a fan,but most newer units do).If the compressor doesn't start after a short time the thermostat/control for the refrigerator section is broken,and needs replaced.

SOURCE: samsung RB215BSSB refrigerator freezes up

I had a similar problem where my evaporator coil was freezing into a block of ice, which caused my fridge to warm up due to a lack of air flow. I fixed this by doing a few things. I replaced the circuit board ($100) which was easy to do. Unfortunately, this didn't fix my problem so I took the inner fridge cover off to view the evaporator/heater coil assembly. I checked my thermo fuse and found it to be open (failed). I ordered the thermo fuse and the thermistor and replaced them both. I then plugged the fridge back up and put a regular thermometer inside the fridge to get an accurate reading of inside temp. A few days now and everything looks good. The board, fuse, and thermistor were all pretty easy to replace.

How do i set my temperature on my fridge freezer its a aeg santo ?


Hi

The santo was originally built with a standard thermostat, this is graduated from 1 to 6 where 1 is the warmest setting and 6 is the coldest, normally you would set this to btween 3 and 4 and adjust it slightly to your favourite.
