I have a 3 year old AEG Santo 3778-8 KA larder style fridge. Over the past few weeks,the temperature warning light keeps flashing and bleeping and the interior light also flashes on and off.
According to the manual that indicates the temperature is above 12 C and may be due to a fault.
Over the past couple of days, the fridge won't chill at all.
We also have the matching freezer so feel it would be worth getting this repaired but just wondering if there is anything we can do ourselves.
Many thanks for any help.

Re: 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
