AEG Freezers - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals
Why is the temperature fluctuating.
Service engeener always checks the average temperature inside freezer or refrigerator compartment. When you turn on freezer, the compressor starts to circulate gas through the system and the temperature in the freezer is decreasing (go to minus). When inside of the freezer reaches the set temperature the compressor is switched off and temperature will increasing. What will be the difference of inside temperature depends on the type of refrigerator and type of thermostat or sensor and moves to max. 8-9 degrees. With the advent of new "No Frost" refrigerator, this difference was reduced to only a few degrees Celsius, thanks to the fan inside the refrigerator and NTC sensor.
So 29 + 14 = 43; 43/2 = 21.5 which means that your average temperature of -21.5 which is not too much deviation from the set temperature of -18 and I think that is ok.

Orange light is on instead of green light on freezer what does this mean
Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees - orange light : pressing the so-called S-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The S-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

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.

Light will not go out when door is closes
It sounds like the door switch is sticking in the on position to me>
Does it go out if you manually press door switch with the door open?
If it doesnt then its almost certainly a sticking door switch. You may have to bring this unit completely out of the fridge to look at it and then test it for a permnanently closed contact.

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...
