Question about Smeg FA350X Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

Smeg UKFC 40RX

The Fridge appears to be staying at room temparature, although the Freezer is OK. The green light is ON

The Fridge thermostat was at 4 and I have tried it at both 9 and 0 for different periods. The condensor backplate does not feel cold nor have any condensation on it

I can hear and "feel" the compressor running

Does the unit have a separate compressor for each section?

The compressor does run warm but not hot, if the freezer is not cooling then the comp is faulty, approach local repair agent for cost. Regards The Advisor Smeg Agent

SOURCE: Fridge not cold enough and build up of ice at back of fridge

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.

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.

I have a Kenmore bottom fridge model #596.69274991. Although things are cold and frozen, the room temp is only 70 degree but it seem to run for well over an hour although there has not been much opening...


Tom, you pretty much have it all covered. Make sure both the freezer fan and the fan under the fridge are both running and keep your eye on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment fro any signs of frost build up (possible defrost problem).
Good luck!

Fridge side won't regulate temp. however the freezer will freeze to -9 and stay right there! How do you test the thermostat? or is this a common problem. The fridge was built in 01' and nothing has been...


the thermostat is either off or on, and it controls the fridge temperature the freezer is just a by product of the remaining gas from the fridge usually -20/30 degrees lower than the fridge, two problems would cause this leaked gas would reduce the cooling capacity of the freezer but the fridge should stay ok although the compressor would be constantly on trying to keep temperature. the thermostat can fail after time not being able to keep a regular temp and not switching the compressor on enough to cool the system. unless you have a frost free where is usually a relay that controls the compressor witch have a life time rating of so many operations.

Lights on, sounds like running, everything thawed


Check your compressor, the relay and the computer board. These are all located at the back of the fridge if all check out ok, then check your thermostat

Model rs21dcsv freeze is working but fridge is not working


CHeck to see if there is ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so you have a defrost problem. Manually defrost it then take the back wall out of the frezer and check ohms on the heater if heater is ok then replace just the defrost timer and thermostat. If heater is bad replace all three.
