Question about Smeg FAB28
Check the seal is tight all around the door - clean it to within an inch of it's life.
Then make sure the drain hole (inside at the bottom of the fridge) isn't blocked (a long handled screwdriver with kitchen roll wrapped around it will suffice). You can tell the drain hole is blocked as it's characterised by the door being difficult to open in quick succession (plus - you can see it's blocked).
Next, defrost the fridge completely: Power off, open door on freezer compartment & fridge and mop up the damp. When totally dry, turn back on (without food - let it cool properly before putting food back).
I had the condensation problem and it's now sorted. Not sure which cause was responsible, but the 'solution' is worth a try.

This is a known problem with these fridges. The only fox is to replace the fridge.
