|German term or phrase: Aggregatstufe|
|Addendum to previous question: It is a typo, it has just occurred again as 'Aggregatstufe'|
|aggregate bracket, compressor console|
Judging from the first posting (with the typo), this part is a piece of sheet metal, where the compressor (or whatever aggregate is used as cooling unit) is mounted. This would be a "bracket" or "console"

|This was a tough one, particularly given the two 'typos' in the first place! Many thanks for your help - I too have an Ernst but couldn't find anything that helpful under 'Stufe'... |

stage of the unit
In German engineering parlance Aggregat means unit or even set - anything from a motor, pump, compressor etc.
Aggregatstufe indicates that you are dealing with a multi-stage unit here, and something is done to one of the stages. You have to finesse your way around it or give us more context.

I generally agree with Dietrich, and in particular with the need for more context (!). In general, German engineers use 'Stufe', where an English-speaking engineer would say 'stage', to refer to a functional component of a system (think of a block diagram of an amplifier, for instance, with an input stage, intermediate stage and output stage). Also, what Dietrich says about Aggregat is true; here I would assume (in the absence of more context) that it refers to the motor/compressor assembly/unit together with any directly attached bits and pieces. which forms one stage of the refrigeration system (the others being the radiator/heat exchanger and the evaporator/cooling unit). Why the structure described in your previous question would be reduced in size around the compressor is up to you to figure out...
