Smeg Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

It sounds like the thermostat is failing, or has failed. Try altering the temperature to make it warmer. If it has fully failed, altering will make no difference at all and it will be working constantly instead of cycling on and off to maintain the temperature you have set it to.

Put a thermometer in the top of the fridge and one in the bottom. Write down the temperatures first thing in the morning and at 6:00 pm.

Monitor the temperature for two days before you make the setting warmer.

You can also try turning the whole thing off for an hour as it may reset.

It is the same for any fridge. I am a trade chef and catering manager :>)

The ideal refrigerator temperature is 35° F (1.6° C). You're not hugging the danger zone like you would be at 40° F (4.4° C), and you're distancing yourself sufficiently from 32° F (0° C) that you don't freeze half the stuff in your refrigerator.Jun 21, 2013
