Not working at all

Just found another review today, exactly the same experience. Not working from day 1, only freeze when pressed the Super button, but it would drain the electricity. All my meat thawed and the water even leaked onto my carpet. Even worse, i bought a lot of food after get this in, now i have to deal with these food as my old fridge is full. Have booked a technician but it would take another week to come as I am not always at home, hard to find a good time slot. Frustrated, as i am a busy mum/pt worker, now have to deal with so many mess.

bloody noisy

good price not a bad energy rating and does freeze you products fast but unless u got somewhere to put it where the noise wont bother you i would look for a quieter option.the other problem is that it only came with one basket. not to bad depth was not almost falling in too reach the bottom.

So bloody noisy

Bought this freezer cause it was the perfect size to fit into the spacing I had ....
There’s a constant humming noise coming from it it’s so annoying, only read the other reviews now and it seems to be the norm!!
Do all makes of freezers make noises can never remember this noise in my parents house !!
It was on special as well so that’s why I bought it maybe a few dollars more spent next time!!

Bought to fit half a beast in it

Purchased because of it's size, as other freezers would not have fitted the size of the cuts in the draws. Freezer comes with three baskets so we can separate the smaller cuts from the large roasting pieces. It is a chest freezer so the cold air does not escape as if it was a vertical freezer. Compliments my vertical freezer as both have dual purposes. Easy clean surface. No comparison to vertical freezers for the price.

Ice forming on lid hinges

We bought ours in January through Betta Electrical. Ice formed on lid hinges within days. The lid's been replaced once but the issue remains. We're awaiting a resolution. Another reviewer here has had the same issue with a different model. HAIER SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO SELL PRODUCTS WHICH HAVE KNOWN ISSUES THAT THEY'RE UNABLE TO RESOLVE. Neither should companies like Betta continue to stock items which are known to have issues. Refunds to customers should be immediate.

very noisey

Bought this freezer from Harvey Norman last month. It's a really good size. freezer from Harvey Norman. First thing we noticed is just how loud it is. The demo was not switched on in the store. We initially thought it was only going to be loud when it was cooling to get up to temperature. But there is a constant loud humming noise. I wouldn't buy it again. The noise is really annoying.

You get what you pay for.

I had trouble freezing stuff properly especially meat at the beginning and i thought I had wasted my money but for some reason it works fine now. Might be worth spending a bit more and going for a better brand for people who want something reliable and a peace of mind.

Affordable with decent energy star rating

This freezer fits in our tiny laundry giving us extra freezer capacity needed for our expanded family. We had to install it with the short edge facing out and it still looks ok and is fine for access. We chose this brand because it had an extra half star energy rating over similar sized units and was actually cheaper than some brands with lower efficiency.

Issue with Ice forming on inside where hinges are

Purchased one of these 13 months ago, within 4 month ice was forming inside the door lid hinges and kept getting worse, called there customer service which is great as they are 24/7 so they send a tech out to arrange replacement. New one came, and yep same issues after a week, so then they arrange for another one, and within 4 days same problem, now Haier are telling me that they are going to arrange store credit. Their handling of the issue has been great, however shouldn't have to go thru this time wasting.

best freezer to have

trustworthy brand. it's a very famous electrical brand in China as well. last piece bought from costco today and got delivered. so lucky to have it for just 350 bucks. cheap, quite, freezes my food nicely and quickly. perfect size for a small family of 4. strongly recommend it. ..

Little freezer Lots of room!

We needed a small freezer to fit in a limited space and this was perfect. Quiet and looks good too! The basket is deep enough to hold most anything and the shelf makes it easy for me to reach in as I am very short. Recommended this model to family and friends.

Does a good job of keeping my frozen food fresh

Bought the freezer from the Good guys store at Marion last week at a good price - $367. It is a 201 litre, three and a half star energy rating, and is whisper quiet. Stocked it with my chrisco frozen food hampers , and it fitted everything perfectly. Even with a full load of food, it doesn't Labour, and it has worked well thus far. Two year warranty, and a brand I trust.

Absolute garbage

Has this freezer 2 days on max thermostat and all my food has defrosted. My fridge is colder than this freezer Absolute garbage. It looked great in the shop but my new hisense has already out performed it within 10 mins of being plugged in. Taking back for a refund. Purchased from retravision.

Great little unit!

This is a good little freezer. It runs pretty quite and cheap enough. I have been very impressed with how many things can fit inside of it and the lack of condensation. I would recommend this unit for any excess meat or leftovers you may have, it really works well!

Good, it works

Mine is a HCF101, an almost-cube-shaped chest freezer, very small. Great price from appliances online, and unplanned purchase (due to my new Samsung fridge having a very tiny freezer). It buzzed a bit when first turned on, but then calmed down, and it rarely comes on. It has a very bright green "on" light that goes all the time, plus there's a boost function I haven't used and that's an orange light. It has one top basket, and Ikea rubbish buckets fit in it, kind-of. I'm happy with this, for the price, it's good. Now I can buy stuff from Costco again.

Very good and reliable

It's been working since 5 months on summer time and under sun never give a little problem works really silent and powerfull and very reasonable price when you compare with other brands. I was scaring before i bought it because of unknown brand but than i research that company one of the best at Europe.

Very noisy. Works ok so far

Bought this freezer from Harvey Norman about a week ago. First thing we noticed is just how amazingly loud it is. the demo was not switched on in the store. Doesn't seem to freeze that well. Was good price tho. So i guess you get what you pay for. I wouldn't buy it again. The noise is really annoying.

Fantastic budget chest freezer

Cannot fault this freezer - great price and cheap to run - does what it is supposed to. We purchased as an overflow for our kitchen fridge/freezer and honestly cannot fault it. Has basket and shelf - drain hole for cleaning....all you would want for a compact chest freezer. Cabinet has no faults at all.

Questions & Answers

Have just purchased freezer do I have to leave super freeze switch on all the time

No. Once it is up and running we switched it over. Ours is set on 4 and the green light for Control is on. Great freezer. Very quiet. Low maintenance.Hi Anne k thanks for your adviceno it is noisy but you don't need super freeze, on bread does take a bit longer to freeze so prob use super freeze for bread for 1 day if you gonna freeze a lot of bread. i find you only need super freeze if you gonna freeze a lot of things at once then only for 24 hours.

Indicator light has gone out. does this matter, how to change the bulb?
1 answer
I think the light is led. The light is only meant to come on when the compressor is actually running. If the light never comes on, but the freezer continues to work normally otherwise, personally I wouldn't worry about it. If it the light is permanently out and it is still under warranty - you could get it fixed through the supplier.
