“ Built under Fridge / Fridge capacity 140 litres / 3 Shelves / Larder / Auto defrost / Bottle rack / Energy rating B „
Do you want the short review? Don't buy this fridge and if you do make sure you have loads of patience for the hours you will spend trying to fix it/have it fixed.
Technical specs include, Adjustable thermostat, Auto defrost function and Interior light amongst others.
Adjustable thermostat: Between British summer (wet but moist) and Antarctic winter.
This fridge is so temperamental that a slight adjustment will make the fridge so warm that butter will turn to slush and milk will curdle or so cold that anything inside it freezes solid.
Auto defrost function: Doesn't work. The fridge is constantly engulfed in frost.
Interior light: About the only thing that works.
We had this fridge installed and it worked for a few weeks but then it started playing up, we tried adjusting the temperature but that just made things worse. We called out the engineers and they came and inspected and said it was fine and they couldn't see anything wrong with it (it was working that day can you believe it). A week later we called out the engineer again and they said it was a problem with the door not closing properly and refitted it. It was okay for a few days but then it went funny again. We called the engineer a third time and they refused to come out under warranty so we had to pay a call out charge. We tried claiming the money back but the manufacturer wasn't having any of it.
We've had engineer after engineer look at it after managing to convince the manufacturer to give us unlimited call outs as their fridge was obviously playing up. They tested it, refitted it and even replaced it. Nothing has worked and we are now looking into getting a new fridge.
My reviews are based on personal experience and as such will generally only include technical data as if explained to a non technical person. My reviews contain my personal thoughts and experiences with the items I am reviewing and aim to give a view of how something works (or doesn't) in everyday use rather than a list of features. I hope this helps.
