i have got a huge big scratch on my pink smeg, it looks bloody awful and i could cry, i don't know how it got there but its right down to the metal - does anyone know if i can get touch up paint? and if so, where from??? TIA

Cover your fridge in magnets and children's artwork. Then no one will see.

It doesn't matter really does it? Life is too short.

try smeg customer services- i bet they can sort it out. You won't be the first

lol ok!

How about painting some nailpolish that matches the colour over it? (if customer servies don't help that is!)

hows this for service, have had e-mail back from smeg customer service already! bad news is that they don't have any paint sad

what the hell can i do now?

How about some t-cut that blends scratches on cars

there are companies out there that re-paint metal. DH has sent bike frames off to be re-painted before, huge range of colours available. No idea if they'd do something as complicated as a fridge door, and obv you'd need another fridge while your door was away, but may be worth a google of Shot blasting / repainting etc if it's really important to you. Or Smeg may replace the door (at a price?)

Try Halfords for car spray paint in the right shade - you can mask off most of the fridge and overspray the scratch to blend in again, after t-cutting it a bit, probably.

thanks everyone, how about this! i got another e-mail from manufacturer redirecting me to british customer service website and they are sending me a pot of touch up paint smile for free!!!!

all it took was 2hrs and 2 e-mails - i'm impressed (and relieved)

i wish stoves were as quick with a replacement knob (oh er missus) for my cooker.

good- i have been ridiculously bothered about this

traceybath Fri 19-Sep-08 19:51:48

oh i am glad - think i may contact them as the light in my fridge is playing up - doesn't switch off when you close the door.

If you've closed the door, tracey, how do you know the light hasn't gone off?!
