“Less than 3 years since I bought this Smeg Fab28...”

Written on: 26/06/2005 by LauraA (2 reviews written)

Good Points
External quality good and overall a very stylish product.
Large internal storage capacity.

Bad Points
Extremely cheap door shelves.
Bulbs need replaced regularly.
Blackening around bulb fitting.
Glass-shelve edgings all now broken twice in less than 1 year.
Temperature control hopelessly unresponsive.
Freezer compartment door ill-fitting. Have to unscrew the whole door to defrost as compartment completely iced-up. Catch broken also.
Poor after-sales.

General Comments
Less than 3 years since I bought this Smeg Fab28 fridge, it is heading to the tip. It will have a sign on it, informing any passers by, not to buy a fridge of this type.

This is the most over-priced, unreliable electrical appliance I have ever purchased. Having spent nearly £900 I was expecting a quality product that was durable, reliable and most importantly fit for purpose. After 6 months, and considerable wastage of food items that had perished because of inadequate temperature control, I soon realised I had wasted my money.

After replacing the plastic trims that hold the shelves in place, earlier this year for a cost of circa £80, they have now cracked again. I have informed Smeg after-sales that there seems to be some major design flaws with this product, but as anticipated, no-one was interested.

My advice, please do not buy a Smeg FAB28 fridge.
