Light not switching off in fridge AEG Santo


Does the fridge door seem to be sitting correctly or has it dropped?

If you get a magnet and open the fridge door and run it under the control panel slowly will the light switch off from there?

still not going off

Ok in this case im afraid the control board itself is the fault. The reed sensor o there will have failed so its not picking up the door is closed hence the light being on.

To cure this the control board will need to be replaced im afraid.

But in the mean time what you will need to do is remove the light cover and carefully remove the light bulb. Just be carefull as they can get quite hot.

How much are they?

They are quite expensive as they are showing £161 but it looks like its obsolete now so AEG dont have it in stock.
