I have a big tall AEG fridge-freezer that has gone wrong. Helpline doesn't
Anyone know of a newsgroup where other worried customers might post problems
and solutions? Can't find any newsgroup with AEG in the title. In case
anyone here can help, the problem is that the fridge suddenly starts to emit
a rattling and whirring sound. We switch it on and off and finally the
horrid noise stops and the fridge works OK but it is a worrying defect to
have in the background. Might it be a fan or a motor?
There are internal circulating fans on many fridge / freezer units, but the
most common cause of rattles and whirring sounds is the machine itself is
not level. Try placing a bubble level on top or against the side and front,
and make sure the unit is level, not perfect, but level enough to make the
fans and compressor unit run without any hindrance.
How old is the appliance?
