Question about Smeg Refrigerators

Open Question

Smeg CR330A We have just bought one of these as a replacement, the old one packed up after about 11 years. Thought it would be straightforward to fit as it is the identical model, but it looks difficult and there are no instructions, just a bagful of little slidy bits. Not sure how you're supposed to fix the brackets to the fridge freezer doors, and my husband took off the old ones so I don't know how it was done before.. Should it be do-able ourselves, or will we need to get someone in?

SOURCE: Smeg Fridge light

What you need to locate is the door switch mechanism for the fridge. These are normally located towards the top of the door and protrude so that when the door closes the switch is pushed in. To find out if you have a problem with the switch just press it when the door is open and the light should go off. The switch itself can appear in various forms either as a protruding rod or a curved plate which pushes upwards against the door side when it closes. If I could draw in this section it could be better explained. But if you look around the inside of the fridge on the side away from the door hinge then you should find something you can push. Sorry to be this vague. If you do need a replacement switch they are normally quite simple to change depending on where they are located, most are two screws, or just a push in type. Hope this has been of some help.

You mean you have a door gasket. A good, step-by-step article on this pesky concept of "panel-screw" gasket installation is found on this handy page:

SOURCE: fitting an integrated fridge freezer!

Hi Gareth. I fitted a door to my Hotpoint hsz2321L today. I used self tapping screws through the brackets into the fridge door sides. Looking at the old fridge that came out showed that this was the method used previously. No seal is broken and so the fridge is working perfectly. I do have an issue re-fitting the door onto the new fridge though. The pivot hinge on my fridge doesnt give enough clearance and so it catches on the unit at the side of it. The old fridge (a Bosch) cad cabinet hinges that would sort of concertina out to give clearence. Anyway, good luck.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Fridge/Freezer Door Seal Replacement. Model: ART 462/3

In short no as long as you get the correct seal type from a spares shop, or Whirlpool. Just make sure that it is straight and there are NO gaps or splits in it when you refit it. Usually these will come pre cut to size for the particular model of FF but you can also buy seal strip on a reel from many spares shops. Also when you have removed the old seal make sure that you use a degreasing cleaner to clean around where the old seal was located and make sure the area is dry before fitting the new one.

SOURCE: bosch fridge freezer - ice build up and water leak from freezer

Hi,
This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.

Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

Brushes wont spin. Need to open machine to see if belt broke, but how?


Had the same problem on my panadonic. Make sure it is unplugged and search for the position of the screws, it is a fairly straightforward procedure really if you are used to a little DIY.
My machine's belt WAS broken , just bought a couple of replacements and fitted them, lasted a few more years

GOOD LUCK

How do i fit smeg integrated smeg dishwasher


Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking how you fit your new dishwasher into the old dishwasher's hole, or are you asking how you get the actual measurements of the dishwasher because you're building a new set of cabinets and need to build it to fit?

I am looking for my polaroid camera film. 600 plus


It's been out of production now for about two years. Any you do find will be past the expiry date, so you'll likely either find that the battery pack has insufficient power to last an entire film pack or that the film itself is "off" and has poor colours and that the emulsion does not get squeezed by the film rollers into the photo corners.

Any film packs you do find are likely to be expensive AND a total gamble. A company was recently reported to have announced plans to put the film packs back into production next year, but prices are likely to be at least £30 for just one (ten photo) film pack and I've heard nothing more since then.

What I did with my old Polaroid camera was to fit an external 6v battery pack of my own design to the camera. I then kept an eye out for old stock film packs which have been kept refrigerated; this meant that the batteries in the film packs were always flat but the photo chemistry itself remained fresh and fully usable. I'd post links showing you how I modified the camera, but lost interest a few months ago and sold the camera and photo packs to an enthusiastic photography student. It is a straightforward job though which simply involves opening the camera, soldering one wire to each of the two battery terminals and then running the wires out through the base of the camera to any suitable 6v battery pack. I used a slim LiPo battery left over from a dead digital camera.

Smeg dishwasher


You don't say what you're missing. Smeg maintains websites with contact info to get what you need. www.smeguk.com is in the UK.

What you should generally have is all sliding racks and a utensil holder. Included should be a drain hose and a manual. If a door panel is interchangeable, that is usually bought separately. Water inlet fittings are not included and neither is an exhaust drain connection.
