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

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.

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.
