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.

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.

SOURCE: smeg fridge leaking water on

look at the back panel inside the fridge. is there a v-shaped gulley with a drain hole in the middle? if so, this drain is blocked. push something flexible down the hole to clear the blockage and make sure water flows away freely

My Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer only works with the freezer at the bottom and the fridge is fed from the freezer via ducting to the fridge at the top ---- can anyone tell me why the freezer works perfectly and...


There has to be something restricting the air flow to the fridge. If the fan is running blowing cold air into the freezer, then it should be cooling the fridge too. Empty out the fridge and freezer and use a blow drier to blow hot air into the duct work. There could be an ice blockage not visible in the duct work.

Why is the fridge and freezer not cold enough


If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

Fridge not getting cold


There are 3 likely possibilties, either the compressor is heating up and tripping or if the compressor is working there is a leakage of gas, the third is there is slight moisture or jamming in coil, filter or pipes which is causing uneven cooling. Cheerio

Smeg Fab40 fan stopped working - there is a build up of ice at bottom right freezer.


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.

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.

Refrigerator doesn't work but freezer does


Sounds like the little evap. fan on the rear of the freezer section isn't blowing cold air up to the refer section.
