Noise destroys ambience
The compressor and fan are so loud that I have to turn it off most of the time and especially when entertaining. Runs continuously on Eco even on cold days.

When out of warranty you are on your own
Had a GSP1H from late 2012 which was used only a few times until late 2016 and then it only lasted 18 months before the compressor gave up and the cost of replacement was well in excess of $1,100.00 - actually nearly the same price as a new fridge!!!. Bar Fridges Australia were not interested in helping and just kept referring to the warranty having expired and certainly gave a very unprofessional/uninterested response to my phone calls.
The bottom hinge went rusty and would require constant cleaning of the floor in the vicinity, it was r...eplaced at 2 months of age by Bar Fridges Australia but when the replacement one went rusty and was reported to them, it was out of warranty! Be prepared to wipe up the rust under the hinge regularly. What a shame, such a nice looking and functional fridge but now going to the tip!

Lots of condensation and wet floor.
Have had this fridge for a few months now, hot dry summer no problem. However when weather cools down the glass doors and stainless steel mullions completely covered in condensation and dripping onto the floor.
I'm in Perth now where near the tropics.
Called service department and was told "Some condensation may occur when humidity is above 75%".
Above 75% humidity covers about 80% of the Australian coastal population! Great fridge if you live in Alice Springs.
Was also told it has triple eco glass that was sufficient for condensation.
Can't fault it!
We had a false start with another outdoor fridge and ended up buying a Rhino. It looks great, keeps drinks really cold and it has an energy saving mode which is great. We often have neighbourhood BBQs and this fridge (the single door version) has a surprisingly large capacity - plenty of room for lots of drinks and food. I just love it!

Fantastic product and exceptional service
The Rhino 2-door is a fantastic fridge in our outdoor kitchen. Super efficient, it gets drinks down to the set temp very quickly and looks great. The mirrored interior finish and LED lighting work very well together. Having read online that there was a quieter fan option, I spoke with their customer support and received detailed information. I went with the standard fan, and am very happy with the outcome. The advice I received was spot on. I liked too that there were detailed specs available online (I was a bit surprised when shopping aro...und that many so-called outdoor fridges had quite low IP ratings and were not really recommended for use if any water/splash risk at all). This made comparison of features v price a lot easier. Delivery was free, and extremely quick. I ordered on Sunday, received confirmation on Monday, and received the fridge on Tuesday! (Melbourne to Sydney metro.) The advice and service we received from the company, before and after the purchase, were absolutely superb. In the three months we have had the fridge we have enjoyed our outdoor area much more, and many visitors have commented on the relaxed holiday feel it gives... An update: have had the fridge running for a year now. Still extremely happy with it. Have had no problems, and it looks and runs as well as it did out of the box.
Questions & Answers
My fridge temperature started playing up and would go from 1 degree one day to 12 degrees the next then back to 3 degrees. I read a few reviews about cleaning out the fan on the rear so i emptied out the fridge and turned it off to find the fan wasn't really that dirty. Since turning back on the rear of the fridge near inside fan freezes over with ice and the temperature inside is still not right. What do you think is wrong? Thanks.
I haven't had this issue. Temperature tends to stabilise to minimum. Only issue for me is that I have to turn the fridge off when not being used because of fan/motor noise even though I have installed the slower fan.
Can you email email@example.com or call 1300 376849 with your query so we can help etc.
You can also fill in following link, it sounds like controller has blown a relay, it will keep compressor running and ice over inside at rear, this then stops air circulating and temp with continue to fluctuate.
I have an E3 code flashing on the display, and the fan has stopped working. Im assuming something has failed. Can you advise who I should call to have it repaired. Thanks

What does En5 mean please?
It means it is in "energy saving mode", if you press amd hold the Ens button for 5seconds it will return to normal mode.
