    Good purchase

    published

    We were trying to buy a refrigerator and was searching online. Got positive reviews for refrigerator. When went to buy the worker was suggesting to purchase that one.
    After buying was thinking that’s the good buy but now after few months realising that it’s too small.
    The capacity is not much as described by company.
    Good buying but not highly recommended.

    Saves energy and is quite spacious

    published

    For now, the product seems to be working fine and the fan isn't too loud until at night, when it becomes more noticable. It is quite conservative in terms of energy which is always a plus. The temperature is moderated well and can be easily adjusted. Overall, I think it is a pretty decent product for a decent price.

    Disappointed.

    published

    Temperature is excellent in both fridge and freezer. Wouldn't call it quiet, but definitely a lot quieter than its 50 year old Kelvinator predecessor. Fairly easy to clean but the rubbers are staining easily.

    The major problem for me is the amount of wasted space! Sold as gross volume of 380 litre, listed as net volume of 346 litre. Seems a lot less than that even due to the internal contours and the space wasted by the door shelves. And if these contours are meant to be part of the "Smart Active" component of the appliance, then the electricity usage or "Energy Rating" doesn't seem to reflect a "Smart" appliance.

    Nice to have a new fridge but sad that the down sides take the shine off the joy of using it.

    Fan Problem?

    published

    So far no problems but today every time I open a door, either freezer or fridge the fan goes on very fastr when I close door. So is t.he fan on the blink, I was worried it could be an electrical fault that might cause a fire. Apart from this, on a Sunday of course, it is a great refrigerator

    faulty freezer fan

    published

    we have had this refrigerator for under 4 years and the alarm keeps going off and after doing some research it sounds like its a common fault with the freezer. The fan has stopped working and needs to be replaced or a faulty connection it is very common not happy.

    Perfect

    published

    I bought this fridge at least 15 years ago. It has been moved from pillar to post and it has never missed a beat. I really love it but now need more freezer space. Not happy.... but have to look at getting a bottom mount as I have no room for a small freezer. Just found out they're now made in China:-(.
    It bever misses a beat
    A little noise when it turns off from defrosting.

    Very pleased

    published

    Only had the fridge a week - but very happy with it so far. Despite some reviews I have read - I have found it to be very, very quiet. Nice enough design (a bit retro) with glass shelving and wheels underneath, so easy to move. So far - I would recommend it, I will keep you up-dated and let you know of any problems.
    Enery efficient, quiet, wheel mounted, glass shelving
    design is a bit retro

    Six month up-date - still very happy and impressed with the fridge, so quiet you cannot hear it. Working well and no problems at all. I would still recommend it.

    Nice fridge

    published

    We bought this for a small family after moving into a house with a fairly narrow fridge space. It's nice, reasonably quiet and laid out well. In hindsight I'd have preferred something a little larger, perhaps the 411L one (which is the same width but 10cm taller), but all in all a good buy.
    Fits into a narrow space
    A little small - only two shelves in the door when I'd have liked three.

    Works well with plenty of space

    published

    Two models available, with door hinged on left or right
    Plenty of shelving space and freezer space
    Great price for 380L fridge
    Parents have the model below for over 2 years and still works perfectly
    Runs quietly most of the time, makes an audible noise while the fridge "starts up", but its only for a short duration and bearable.
    Great for household of 2-4
    Left Hinge option, inexpensive, reliable
