Excellent fridge only refrigerator
I bought this new fridge only refrigerator 4 months ago and it has been a fantastic buy so far. The only problem I have had with it, is some ice that gathered at the drainage hole and leaked out from the bottom of the crisper area when I had it set at 2C. It was fixed easily enough by adjusting the cooling temperature to 4C and it now doesn't freeze up anymore. So far there have been no more problems and the space I have now in the new fridge is awesome!
Mouldy & Wet
The fridge has mould on shelves and crisper is always dripping water. Have had a fan replaced & then the new fan repaired but no solution to mould & dampness. no wonder it is discontinued now. Mould is so dangerous to our health, this is a real concern. I don't recommend anyone buy a Hisense Fridge.
[censored word removed]
I brought a fridge and the light didn't work so I called the store where I brought the fridge from and they tried to source a globe from the supplier but it would take five weeks. The store said this was [censored word removed] and so hisense said they would swap it with another fridge but I had to wait a couple of weeks .when the replacement fridge arrived the guys who delivered it removed it from the box and the back fell off because there were broken and missing screws, lucky the store I brought if from swapped it for a different brand.
Hard to get light globe and damaged
Good Cheap fridge
Brought this fridge 4 years ago. Have not had any problems with it. Would this recommend this fridge to anyone who would like a cheaper version. I am now using it as a second fridge just to hold drinks for parties. Keeps food cool and does have a boost for cooling if required.
Hard to open door if you have just shut it. wait a minuite and not a problem. Helps keep the kids out.
No after sales services from this company - they are a joke
This mob are a joke - don't be fooled by the low price and the promise of a 3 year warranty, as they don't provide any after sales service! We bought one of their fridges and it had a problem with the door. The retailer swapped it over for another one with a bigger problem - it ran flat out all the time and so froze and spoiled all our food - fruit, vegies, milk, eggs and all. After 10-12 telephone calls to Hisense - waiting on hold for hours and then just getting flimsy excuses - and waiting 4 weeks, still no-one has come out to repair it. They are a joke -I don't believe they have any intention of fixing it. They will waste your time and money as well - don't buy from Hisense. Pay a bit more for a reputable brand.
Cheap but nasty quality and service
Bad warranty service - they will promise to send someone out to repair it but weeks pass and no one comes.
Overall it is quite good for the price. Has saved a heap on the power bill since purchasing it and it is much easier to keep clean with the tempered glass slelves.
Bought this fridge April 2010 as my old freezer had packed it in and thought it would be best to replace both fridge and freezer. Price was very good. Got the fridge and freezer for the price most fridges alone were going for. Digital temperature control was a bonus. Seems to have much more room inside compared to my old Kelvinator which was much the same size. Also liked the tempered glass shelves and being sble to adjust the shelves to the height I want.
The vegetable crisper is very flimsy and split around the handle before it was 6 moths old. The door seal is so good it is hard to open and I have to grab the top of the door and force it open ( I feel if I use the handle I will pull it away from the fridge door. Did have a problem with it throwing the circuit breaker a few weeks ago, but think it may have been caused by it icing up slightly. After switching it off for a while it restarted and hasn't missed a beat since.
