I bought the Hotpoint FFA97 fridge/freezer roughly 6 years ago, but in the first 6 months of buying, the salad draws cracked. It makes banging and crashing noises which are so loud that in the middle of the night I have often thought someone was breaking into the house.
After 12 months all the freezer draws had started to crack and are now not useable. I looked into replacing them but it was really expensive.
Have now taken the draws out as they had become in useable and I kept catching my hand on them. So now have to stack the food in without the draws making what should be an easy task a living hell. I have now also lost the large door tray in the fridge which broke off as I went to place a pint of milk in it.
It was an expensive, looks great but the quality is poor. I would not recommend it to anyone and will never buy Hotpoint again.
The cost of replacing all the inside compartments I need comes to around £150.
