“'Frost-free' freezer needs to be defrosted every 4 months”

Written on: 19/05/2013 by consumer99939 (1 review written)

I have owned this fridge/freezer for 5 years and have found that it needs to be defrosted every 4 to 6 months. It is described as frost-free but clearly isn't. The fridge is cooled by a fan that circulates cold air from the freezer cooling unit. The freezer cooling unit ices up regularly and the ice starts blocking the fan. This results in a loud noise as the fan hits the ice and, if left, the fan gets completely blocked by the ice and stops turning (and the fridge then gets warm as no cool air is being circulated).

You get very little warning that this problem is about to arise (once the fan noises start, you have about 3 days before the fridge stops working). This has resulted in me having to throw away a lot of food on numerous occasions. This product is poorly designed and unfit for purpose.
