AEG Refrigerators - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals
How do I access the
go to bottom of freezer push pipe cleaner though hole have blockage in S trap
I have an AEG SANTO OKO fridge unit only about 1 year old.
We just cannot open the door without it being pulled 2 inches on every open. I have since placed it on a rubber mat with no success
You have very good door-seals,
with strong magnets on the refrigerator.
I suspect, You must pull hard to open the door.
Does the fridge have 2 wheels?
It may only stand firm on 2 "legs" and not 4.
This problem is the first, I ever heard,
I do not know this model,
If it is a Refrigerator that is not very heavy, this can happen.
When the door seals are very good, what can happen is
The door has been closed and the air inside the fridge becomes cooler and cooler.
The air inside the food-compartment contracts,
because it cools down and pulls even more on the inside of the door surface, actually pulling the door shut.
( a negative air-pressure inside the fridge) compared to
the outside of the refrigerator.
A trick I am using is,
I place my finger between the door and the cabinet-frame.
Then, with the finger, index or middle finger,
I push gently
against the Door-Seal (Gasket).
for 1 or 2 seconds,
This allows the Air from outside, (higher pressure)
to flow into the food compartment of the fridge
and now it is easy to open the door.
Let me know if this works for you.
Appreciate to be alive and be kind to others.

Thermostat not working in my Santo fridge
it is a requirement as they are not repairable

may be possible to get a thermostat to suit from e-bay
Fridge too cold
Return your thermostat to 5 setting. If this does not help, it is probably the contacts inside the thermostat are welded shut and needs to be replaced. You can find you replacement thermostat with your model number on Searspartsdirect.com.

Refrigarator not working after power outage
When power goes on and off suddenly, it can cause the compressor to overload and "trip out" This is supposed to protect the compressor from being electrically damaged. In most cases, after 10 or 15 minutes, the compressor will reset. It is usually safer to switch off the fridge or unplug it for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure a full reset. If it doesn't start, the power surge may have damaged the compressor relay. or overload device on the side of the compressor. I would doubt that it damaged the compressor itself. Be aware of the relay and overload device, unfortunately, there are Techs who will quote for a compressor job when all it needs is a relay or overload.

AEG 78738, no ice made
It is possible that water line to the ice maker is frozen. Try thawing it out with a hair dryer and see if that solves the problem. It could also be the solonoid valve located behind the fridge where the water line connects.Make sure the arm above the ice bin is in the down position.Hope this helps.
