We had the same problem and were told that gas was not circulating properly. We had it topped up, but it broke a week later. It had to be scrapped.

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.

The Door on my SMEG Retro Fridge keeps opening on its own accord ? There's nothing inside poushing up against it so why does this keep happening ?

There is an upgrade kit for the FAB40 to prevent ice build up which falls under the warranty for the FAB40. I've had it installed and it basically replaces the entire back of the inside of the freezer. Following the upgrade, my FAB40 would ice up completely, plugging the ducts to lead cold air to the fridge below. You can spot this syndrome by the water dripping throught the grate at the top of the fridge compartment. This is melted ice from the freezer ducts. SMEG has now sent their top guy, a drunk and pretty rude guy who replaced the whole backside again, and I'm hoping it will improve.
The bottom line is, SMEG is just ****. Very, very expensive ****. I invested about 10.000 dollars in SMEG equipment three years ago, and every single piece of machinery in my kitchen has broken and needed repair during that time. I deeply regret having bought stuff from them and next time I will definitely go with something different.
