Purchased separate fridge and freezer five/six years ago. no problems with freezer. however within two months had water leaking at base of fridge compartment, replaced drain trough heater kit under warranty. similar problem occurred just at conclusion of warranty period once again was replaced. On Christmas Eve this year, fridge was not keeping temperature (granted was very hot weather) , turned up thermostat, nothing changed. Motor sounded noisy for a few days before this but then noise stopped. Repairman said had a slow gas leak and woul...d need to go to workshop and costs would be $500 + and in his opinion not worth repairing. As cannot get another fridge to fit the size of opening and 373 has been discontinued have had to buy a new combined fridge/freezer and remodel kitchen. PS did get a second opinion from another repairman who concurred that fridge was not worth repairing.
Complete loss of gas at 4 years of age. Uneconomic to repair so off to the tip it goes.
This is the second one of these we've owned, as it's an unusual size to fit out kitchen,and both failed at similar age. Now altering joinery so can buy a different brand. Will never touch F&P again.
Terrible customer service also.
A good source of water damage
Normally an ok fridge but the horrible quality of the evaporator tray brings it undone. Had the fridge for about a year and a half and it developed a leak. After some poking around found the water dropping from the front of the catchment tray that is suppose to allow the water to heat and evaporate out. As it turns out cheap plastic tray developed a crack in the tray right near where it is mounted allowing the tray to lean forward so the water just leaks out. Would not be a major issue except it has caused water damage to the surrounding kitchen cupboards it sits next to.
