Smeg FAB50P Fridge Freezer, A+ Energy Rating, 80cm Wide, Cream

Product information

Introducing the new Smeg FAB50P fridge freezer in a stylish, cool cream finish. At 80cm wide it brings a new dimension to Smeg’s cooling portfolio and is aimed at fulfilling the needs of those who require large capacity refrigeration without compromising on style.

The combination of its generous size and rounded edges is clearly reminiscent of the large capacity fridges which were typical in the 1950’s, but features all of the modern updates you would expect from a fridge freezer.

With a generous total gross capacity of 484 litres, the new FAB50P can easily fulfil the cool storage requirements of even the largest family. The interior has been designed to maximise the usefulness of the space and refrigerator zone is equipped with 2 chiller compartments, 3 adjustable glass shelves and 2 large fruit and vegetable compartments. The durable door furniture has been designed to accommodate bottles, jars, cheese, eggs and butter with ease.

The multiflow ventilation system distributes the air within the fridge constantly and evenly to ensure optimum storage conditions and ensures that the chiller compartments, which are particularly suitable for storing meat and fish, maintain an ideal temperature of 0°C. The freezer features a manual ice maker, fast freezing compartment and interior light. The appliance is A+ rated for energy consumption.

Please note: The door of this appliance has right hand side hinges. A gap of 200mm must be left on the hinged side of the product to allow the door to open.

The Smeg name is linked to its roots in the Guastallia region of Italy. Smeg stands for ‘Smalterie Metallurgiche, Emiliane, Guastallia’ (a metal enamelling factory in Guastalla, Emilia, Italy). Smeg ensures exceptional build quality by using high quality components and applying rigorous testing to every appliance. It takes two years of research and testing before Smeg releases a product onto the market, and every appliance is tested for 15 years of use.

Q & As

Smeg FAB50P Fridge Freezer, A+ Energy Rating, 80cm Wide, Cream 1 5 1 1
Three defective fridges returned We have had three of these delivered and returned over the last few weeks. In each case the door seals to the hinge side do not contact with the cabinet. This is due to the degree to which the hinges space the door away from the cabinet. On the first occasion this was not apparent until after we had switched on the fridge and noticed ice/condensation forming on the lower hinge of the freezer compartment. Cold air was blowing out of an approximately 8mm wide gap between the full length of the hinge-side seals and the cabinet. We arranged for Smeg to inspect. Their engineer advised that it was a manufacturing defect and could not be remedied. It was not due to a reportedly common problem whereby the fridges are set up on out of level floors. By the time that the fridge was collected, the freezer compartment had iced up and the frost free collection tank on the back of the fridge was nearly overflowing. The second fridge was delivered about a week ago, but we did not accept it owing to the same problem, but to a less significant degree. The third fridge has been delivered (and refused) today. It had the same problem, to the freezer door only, with a 3-4mm wide gap. We have now asked for and are receiving a refund. 04 December 2013
