Freezer losing temperature
Hi Julie. I'm Roger. It sounds like the operating thermostat is not working When not in the fast freeze mode. Can you here a click sound from the thermostat when turning the temperature up and down short of fast freeze? We normally charge them to operate at -10 to -20 degrees. The inside temperature will normally only reach a temperature around 18 degrees warmer. The operating thermostat should allow you to regulate its temperature any where from that capability up to where you want it. See if your thermostat makes a clicking sound when adjusted. The warning light comes on because it knows the box temperature is higher than it is set for and is warning you of that. If it uses a printed circuit (PC) board, the click will dot be very loud. listen closely. Let us know how this turns out for you. We have very good refrigeration techs. here. Someone else here may have an idea too.

Fridge water sound
This kind of noises produced gas in cooling system.
In the old coolers never heard sounds like streaming water because the compressors were very loud due to high pressures (12 bars or more), which were required for efficient cooling. Today we use more ecological gases which work (from 5 to 6 bars) at much lower pressures, thus compressors produce much less noises and now suddenly we hear sounds that never before heard. Generally speaking noises is lower, measured in decibels.

Freezer wont go below -9 degrees
This information does not mean anything to us if you didn't specify the model. In what temperature range a freezer works we knew thanks to the stars.
One star (-6 degrees centigrade) is perfect for making ice cubes and is sufficiently cold to keep food for three or four days.
** Two stars (-12 degrees centigrade) stores food for fifteen to twenty days.
*** Three stars (-18 degrees centigrade) will keep food safe for up to three months.
**** Four stars (below 18 degrees centigrade) means that the compartment provides the ideal conditions for freezing down fresh and pre-cooked foods.

AEG Electrolux model s75358kg3
The service manual for this unit is not available. From your description the problem is either the fan or the defrost system.
To test if fan has iced up you simply perform a complete defrost. If the fan restarts working, then it was blocked by ice. The damper fan motor rarely fails. For this reason you usually test other parts before going for the fan. The fan motor can be tested by energizing it directly (jumping its contacts), or by reading Ohms. A faulty temperature control can cause the fan not starting.
The problem is more commonly the defrost system. This part comprises the evaporator and it is located behing the freezer firewall. The function of the defrost system is preventing coils from freezing. When defrost system is defective you get no cooling and the compressor is usually quite busy most of the time.
In defrost system locate and replace the defrost thermostat. This is the part that most commonly fails. The thermostat can be tested reading Ohms at its terminals.
Here an example of the repair done on a different fridge: When the fridge is not cooling...

I have an AEG Fridge/freezer..the fridge section
I am not familiar with your unit but It sounds like you may have more problems then you think. The freezer and refrigerator are probably on the same compressor so a fuse shouldn't be involved unless the light doesn't come on. If that is the case you have a tripped breaker or blown fuse in your house panel. Be sure the freezer is actually still working, they warm up much slower then the refrigerator. Put a thermometer inside close it and check every few hours for a few days. It will go up and down, this is normal but it should stay at least -10 or lower (guess on this unit). Check to see if the compressor is operating. Is it possible somebody bumped the thermostat while putting something in the unit?
Hope this helps as a starting point. Find a local source of dry ice in case the freezer fails, this will hold it for a while saving your food giving you time to effect a repair.

The auto defrost alarm has been going off for 30
When the automatic
defrost system quits working frost builds up on the coils inside the freezer
section and impedes airflow to the refrigerated section.
If this is the case the freezer section will begin to warm also.
You may end up having to replace a defrost timer.
as per the problem which
you mentioned there are two possibilities for this problem
i will explain
the evaporator coil in the unit is the problem
or the 2) the defrost
timer is faulty.
as per you the defrost
timer is working. but that not clears that timer is working and in good
condition. the timer should work on proper timing and off at proper timing .if
the timer becomes short it will remain on for more then required and will
remain off when actually required.
the evaporator coils
never go bad or faulty mostly it only stops working if the over load of ice
frost gets collected in between the coil and the evaporator fan due
to things the coil actually does not get required hot and
this makes freezer bit more cold and refrigerator very low cooling or may be
hot. also the other air ventilations gets blocked due
to evaporator coils stop working .to resolve this issue
the only best option is to empty the fridge/freezer unit and unplug
the unit from main power out let keep the door open of the unit and leave it
for 24 hours this melts all the collected ice in the coil as well as in the air
ventilation area. after that clean the inner area of unit with a dry cloth and
then plug in the connection and turn the unit ON keeping
the temperature at normal settings. then check out after two hours if
the unit works proper the evaporator coil was the fault and that got
cleared from the unit by defrosting .but if the proper is same as before after
two hours when you check then its defrost timer faulty in the
now i will explain what
is defrost timer .the defrost timer is the part which controls the cooling and
defrosting in refrigerator .it actually spins as the coldness in the unit. after
the temperature reaches to certain coolness it spins back wards and
defrosts .if the defrost timer is faulty it will not spin properly and all
cooling and defrosting system of the unit will get misaligned. if the timer
gets faulty the cooling will reach till over frost and then the fan
the coils in the unit will get blocked due to ice built-up and over
current will be exerted by the unit to melt that ice. and in this
melting ice procedure without defrost timer the unit stops completely .it can
effect any section lower or upper or may be both. so the defrost timer at
present needs replacement. its like a mini plastic box . color is
mostly black or white or creamish . the cost of timer is near to $40.you
can get it from
This will help. Thanks please keep
updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Temperature has dropped from a normal 18 degrees
The only thing that will make it cool to low is a thermostat. They wear out and get out of calibration. Check to be sure the temp sensor from the thermostat is tight on the mount. Its the little tube that connects to the evaporator that makes the thermostat work.
