I've had the fridge for approx. 6 years paid over 500 pounds for it. Within the first 1.5 years the handle spring broke. Miele did send a replacement free of charge. However, the big issue is the frost that keep forming in the freezer section. Although it says frost free it is not working. The fridge is exceptionally noisy. Loud clunking noises are very frequent and I'm now waiting for it to break down to buy a replacement. I will not be buying Miele again. I believe I (like others) were... (read more)

We have had sa imilar experience to others. Within 6 years, it's been replaced once, now has broken springs in handles and is failing to maintain temperature. Miele want £145 just to come and look at it! Meanwhile, our 12 year old Hotpoint is sat in the garage working beautifully. Miele are known for quality. This is a myth. We have a Miele washing machine that is rubbish too. Never again. (read more)

First review I've ever done. Fridge/Freeze is only 4 years old it makes a loud clunking sound. It's the comprossor on its last knockings £000s to put right . I would expect it to and it should last longer then 4 years. Meile want to charge £70+ to tell me its useless. reading the other reviews . It seems Meilie are not the be all and end all of appliances. Won't touch meile with a barge pole know matter what WHICH tell me. (read more)

This fridge is really great looking and is very stylish. I went for the metallic version to match our kitchen washer and dryer. The fridge is really massive and enough for 4 cases of larger and a couple of boxes of wine! Only problems are the bottle shelf in the door is a bit flimsy, and the freezer fronts have a habit of snapping where they shouldn't. The spares are a bit pricey so you just learn to live with it.

We initially bought this product based on a perception of Miele being a manufacturer of high quality and durability. It looked good from the outside with those chunky handles and inside the design is also pleasing. Honeymoon over after about a year when a spring broke in the fridge door handle. To give them due credit, Miele did send a replacement part when the warranty was just expired. A couple of years later the same spring broke in the fridge door handle, this time rather than pay for... (read more)

The worst fridge freezer I have ever had. THe appliance has been replaced once serviced several times . the replacement appliance is causing the same problem.
The average response time from Miele is two weeks.Thats two weeks without a fridge .
Do not buy a Miele fridge freezer.

The Fridge freezer was expensive but I bought it because I understood they lasted 20 years. It has been the worst white good buy in 35 years! After about 18 months it packed up and could not be fixed and after much hassle, I was given another for the same price as the repair. But lo and behold, after a further 18 months, the second packed up. This time , I'm not going to bother with customer services, they were inefficient, let me down and were expensive. I'll just write it off as a a bad... (read more)

Bought this Miele KFN8462SD fridge freezer because it was supposed to be reliable german technology. Paid well in excess of £600.
After 3 years we have a serious fault and are waiting for engineers to come. Very disappointed as the thing creaks groans and bangs in use and is quite alarming. Seems temp control or condenser is faulty as water collects in bottom of freezer and the fault light 'F4' is flashing.Also a hairline stress crack has appeared in bottom of fridge.
Our old hotpoint was... (read more)

We purchased the Miele KFN8462SD because we decided to replace our 12 year old Zanussi when we were doing some changes to the kitchen. I wish we hadn't! This fridge broke down after 3 years and needed a new temperature sensor which cost GBP180 including fitting. It spluttered on for another 8 months before the temperature controls died. All in all the most expensive mistake I've ever made in the kitchen. I've replaced it with a Bosch which cost GBP199. Wish I'd done that the first time! (read more)
