The design for the Zanussi ZX99/5 is good but noticed that the bottom shelf where I housed my cartons of milk, snapped off when the fridge/freezer door was opened and the milk topped onto the plastic shelf- maybe the design needs to tighter to incorporate cartons of milk up to 6 lires in size. For the last year I have nearly every day had to manually turn off the temperature alarm that annoyingly bleeps constantly and for no apparent reason. Ultimately, i have bought a new Samsung… Read Full Review

Zanussi Fridge freezer model 99/5 intelliflow
bought this model in November 2004 from a small dealer, it was classed as A grade second £299.00 had a few scratches but otherwise perfect and until earlier this year no problems, then it started beeping inconsistantly, usually solved by opening door pressing button, checked manual which indicated temp drop so I assumed that it was due to door not being closed properly especially as it righted itself when door opened and closed then over last week… Read Full Review

Bought the ZX99/5SI in December 2003 and within the first 18 months it developed an annoying beep during the night. Frustratingly this was just outside the warranty period and Zanussi wanted £380 to replace the compressor, we eventually settled on £180 but within 18 months the temperature beepers were back to annoy us. Food and freezer temeratures were fine so we have lived with the beeping (and cancelling manually) but now it has packed in. We will not be repairing it. We loved its look… Read Full Review

£349.99 paid for this model in May 2005,August 2010 the fridge no longer works which makes the fridge freezer useless for a functional kitchen.It has been cared for and not abused.shelves also started to fracture and repairs needed to be made in 2004.Too expensive to replace by buying.
Don't waste your money but hey its a lottery these days on how long electrical goods last no matter what make or model.Get a grip you fat cats and give us proper value for money… Read Full Review

Zanussi Fridge ZRG614SW Absoute Rubbish. It cost £199 and within four months the handle has stress fractures from both screw points and is too weak to open fridge. Contacted Zanussi/Electrolux What a joke Zero customer service tried to tell me that the years guarantee doesn't cover weak plastic handles!
I am waiting to hear from John Lewis but trust me I am going to the small claims to FORCE Zanussi to take responsibility! Absolutely disgusting!… Read Full Review

Starting with the negative, some of the trim broke off fairly easily when hit with an ogject (like a sweeping brush or vac), but didn't look too bad to the naked eye and that's it. Never had an problem with it in 4 years, alarms have gone off but on inspection, things weren't stored correctly or the door wasn't closed properly. Top product. Gave it to my sister when we moved, now I want it back 'cos integrated appliances are too small in comparison!!… Read Full Review

Rubbish. Lasted just 3 years. Spent over £100 on repairs that made no difference. After months of temperature alarms going off all the time including through the night it was eventually just too warm to put anything in. It ended up that the fridge was warmer than the kitchen!!!!… Read Full Review

We had exactly the same problem: beeping every now and again and then, last summer continous beeping. Now it stopped working completely and we just ordered a new one. Not this brand, though... Do not buy it!… Read Full Review

This isn't quite the same model as I had (ZENB9950), but it looks pretty similar. Mine gave up after 3 years as well.
Looks like Zanussi Electrolux are really best avoided if you expect your fridge to last for a reasonable length of time… Read Full Review

After three years of continuous use my Zanussi ZX99/5 fridge freezer is now needing new parts every year which cost around £100 - £200. I just think the freezer is rubbish a and the technical support that comes with it is poor. Not recommended… Read Full Review

Thought i was making a decent purchase buying the Zanussi ZX99/5. They are usually a reputable brand name. But it has cost an absolute premium. How wrong I was. Never ever again will I be purchasing another zanussi product. Ever!
Not worth the bother, so dont touch it with a barge pole, not even if its free.
And that's final!… Read Full Review

Considering the cost and how long it has worked for, I am totally disappointed. I have had all summer without a fridge or freezer. I have had the Zanussi ZX99/5 for just over a year. The fridge boils, and it will not stay cold. An engineer has been every week since June, and replaced several parts, and it only works for 1 or 2 days. If you put food in, the freezer stops working… Read Full Review

Looks good, Was quite expensive but thought it would be worth the price due to the good name - Zanussi !!
Temperature keeps failing in fridge. Freezer good. Every few days we have to empty both fridge and freezer and leave for 24 hours then plug in and all is okish for a few days then back to temperature failure again. Asked Zanussi advice by email but no response from them. Would not buy another Zanussu ever!!… Read Full Review
