drain is blocked. remove back panel inside freezer and melt the ice off at the bottom with a hairdryer then follow up with hot water till drain flows freely. if fault reoccurs, then you may have a fault with the defrost system

SOURCE: recently noticed ice accumulation in

You have a clogged drain. Usually I remove the ice, take a screwdriver and tap it into the drain hole. Then I pour hot water down it until I see that the water is draining all the way out.

Can you freeze cucumber salad?

You can freeze anything. but cucumber is 99.8% water, and anything with so much water does not freeze successfully. Instead of the cucumber being white, it will go clear, and also because the ice crystals expand inside the cucumber, it will become mushy. Any oil based dressing would be fine, but a mayonnaise dressing will split.

So short answer, no you can't. I am a trade chef with 45 years in the trade :>)

Electrolux side by side refrigerator water not dispensing

Hello - I would suggest checking that the water valve is completely open (usually located on the back of the unit). When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. A clogged water filter or a blocked supply water valve may also lead to no water to the dispenser.

Water appearing in the refrigerator and collecting on the back of the shelves as well at the bottom under the vegetable and fruit containers.

AEG SANTO No_frost refrigerator beeps with 5 sec freqency

We have the same fridge, and I could not find my model either!

The label is hidden on the bottom of the top part on the left side, you need to take the veggie tray out to see it. I spent about 3 hours finding the model on the net, and in the manual it said where to look lol.

This mysterious model is the AEG SANTOS 3895-6 KG AKA S3895-6 KG productnumber 928405123-- last two digits can be 00-33.

We had the same problem, solution: press and hold the ON button for minimum of 3 seconds. The fridge switches off. Wait 10 seconds and repress the same button. That´s the quick fix.

To make it go away completely switch off fridge, pull out plug, and thoroughly clean the air vents on the back below using compressed air. After this the problem went away permanently.

Good practice to airclean every 6 or 7 months. You can find the manual for the S3895-6 KG on
