New fridge with a suitable optimum ambient temperature range

Hello, have just registered, could anyone please advise on this.

I am sure that my kitchen will have lengthy periods of being below 16 centigrade, particularly through the night and early morning in the autumn and winter, before switching on the central heating ( it is actually 15.6C as I write this, 2.00 pm, June 11th ).

Given that situation, and my need to get a new fridge ( which is just a fridge, with no freezer section and no ice box ), would it be best to avoid getting a new fridge which according to the specification only has an optimum ambient temperature range of 16C – 32C ( climate class N ), and instead get one which has a range of 10C – 43C ( class SN – T ) ?

Interesting. I'd never heard of /imagined this constraint on a fridge. And now you mention it, our fridge began making a terribly loud hum after moving to a new (old) house this winter. It would stop with a thump but return shortly...but then it suddenly stopped making the nose altogether just as spring finally warmed up, when ambient temperature has stayed above 20c, even through the night.
