Question about Smeg FC40RX Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hi guys - i have a smeg FAB46 fridge freezer and have a cheesey smell wafting from the grill at the bottom/front. I think this will be something to do with the drip tray, but can't locate it. Please advise where it is and how i can get to it to clean it out. the inside f the fridge is not smelly at all. we noticed the smell on our return from holiday and it is stinking out the kitchen and most of downstairs!! thanks for any advice.

remove back panel of freezer. check if there is excessive ice build-up preventing air flow. if there is, then defrost carefully with a hairdryer (with appliance switched off) if no ice or frosting on pipework, check if compressor is running. if it is or hot to the touch or clicking, then you have a compressor fault and replacement is not diy. if compressor not running, then probably module fault

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.

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.
