Problem with HR6TFF222
Bought the Hisense HR6TFF222 New is a great fridge then as others have said the Freezer ice.s up and the fridge seems not cold enough. I rang Hisense and they said it could be that the fridge may need adjusting to make sure the doors close by themselves. So I called a fridge elect. who charged me $100 to tell me that the freezer door must have left ajar . The seals were ok so he said put Vaseline on the seals around the freezer that would help. ummm doesn't really!!!..Im sure its something to do with the controls or a build up of ice in the Pip...es Leading to the freezer that's the problem.... Im trying to turn the fridge off for a day then turn it back on and see what happens August 23rd 2020 Update: Fixed the problem I think A lot of customers have put a review concerning this product iceing up in the freezer section and then not getting as cold in the fridge section.... I bought this fridge in 2014 and still have it even though it did the same thing. SO! this is how I fixed it ! empty the fridge freezer. switch it off. wait till all ice has gone or wipe it out. Leave till dry.. Get a hair dryer and and blow out the vents ( warm to hot air ) leave it for about an hour. redo the hair dryer again. switch the fridge/freezer back on and close all doors tightly. wait for 30 mins and put food back in... Ive done mine and it works well now
Purchased in August 2014 at RT Edwards for $499.00.
Absolute crap caused by poor drainage design, twice leaving the bottom refrigerated section malfunctioning. Hisense and Harvey Norman, Cannington WA most reluctantly fixed it on the warranty expiry period, and 18 months later the same problem reoccurred.
Purchased in July 2014 for $479.00.
Bought it second hand but works excellent
This fridge is bought second hand but not ideally second hand. It was used 6-8 months by the owner and very carefully too. The fridge works in an excellent manner and cooling is perfectly fine. It has been almost two years now and runs smoothly and efficiently. Very happy with the product.
Small sized fridge
Quite loud, cannot sleep when near to it. Sometimes the lower compartment doesn't cool because the upper refrigerator is clogged due to ice so we have to turn off and let the ice cool. It is well suited for a single person or a couple, but as the family grows you definitely need a bigger one.
OK compact fridge
Not bad, so far, for the price I paid and very quiet. The doors are reversible but I didn't have to change them around. One improvement would be more shelves in the doors. There is only one shelf in the freezer door and the fridge door has three, with fittings for a fourth. Due to the spacing however, standing bottles upright could be a problem with four shelves.

Good For First Fridge.
Very affordable. It's best for start-up fridge. Does get noisy at times but doesn't bother us. Energy rating is good as well. Freezer is a bit small though. Overall good fridge with price range- does the job! Warranty is also great (3 years I think), it's what sold us in the first place.
Very good fridge. Price=quality
I literally have no idea why anyone would write such a bad review on this fridge..but it is a really good refrigerator. I've been using it for an year and hadn't had one complain. It's truly price equal quality. People must have expected more of a fridge which (remember) cost just 550$!!!
Would suggest everyone to buy it.
Don't buy this fridge
The freezer is full of frost and the fridge doesn't work after just 10 months. Very unhelpful customer service as they advised it was an installation issue despite the fridge working fine up until now . They don't seem to provide service to the house and you have to be at home to "trouble shoot" the problem with them over the phone. This is difficult when you work all day. Very disappointed.
The best fridge I ever got
I am very happy with this fridge because I can store heaps of drinks, bread, fruit and vegetables and lots of food it also I can freeze so much stuff because the freezer compartment is huge. The Hisense 222L Top Mount Fridge I had was so small and the freezer compartment was tiny.
More trouble than it's worth!
This fridge initially seemed like a great find; perfect size an perfect price! Then the fridge section would randomly get warm then cool back down again after a few days. It got worse this past month as it went completely warm and we lost $100 worth of groceries. We called and were advised to do a 'reset' which helped for a month but now the same thing has happened! I called customer service and they were very unhelpful and we get to spend a week or more without a fridge and with the smell of spoiled salami permeating the kitchen yay! (Not) I am very disappointed in this fridge and would not buy a Hisense product in future. When they do eventually deign to come look at my fridge I will be asking for a replacement or a refund!
Don't buy Hinense fridge!
10 months ago we bought the fridge for the office and it broke down twice in one week. Cooling/freezing element went off every time. For the first repair we were waiting almost 3 weeks, for the second two days. I don't really know how we have survived hot summer days without a fridge?????? Will ask Hisense for full refund of the fridge as it is unreliable! One of the employee's mum had the same fridge repaired three times during the warranty time.
Broke down twice in one week in 10 months
Our first hisense HR6TFF222 that we bought brand new - 4 months use and the defrosting elements went. Got this replaced under warranty with another brand new one and again 4 months later the same thing is starting to happen. Fridge is not keeping cold and freezer is freezing everything solid. :/ Am off the buy a better quality fridge!! Will never buy anything hisense!
Terrible, don't buy!
After about 2 months the fridge became very noisy.
The last month we have noticed the bread and ice cream partially defrosting, then would refreeze.
It's going back and we're buying a better quality fridge.
The fridge part will still be hardly cold even on the highest setting! If the door isn't pushed hard, the seals don't stick.
Doesn't actually keep things frozen and cold!
Great little fridge
We bought one of these fridges for our caravan rather than paying over $2000 for a caravan fridge,we run it on solar panels with an inverter for the 240 volt when we are travelling and free camping,the fridge has never let us down in the 6 months we have had it,it is cold and the freezer keeps food frozen even when travelling and the van is cooking hot inside,great little fridge and doing the solar and inverter bit worked out about halfe the cost of a caravan fridge and the inverter runs our TVs and the rest of the van except the air con,excellent item.
Had nothing but problems with this fridge. after 4 months and 6 complete defrosts I ended up with this fridge being condemned by the refrigeration mechanic that saw my fridge through my warranty claim. From what the approved refrigeration mechanic said he saw at least 3 a week with the same problem. Turns out it is a design fault the temperature control gauge (located in the freezer under the white casing) is too close to the defrost outlet. He went ahead and made the changes as per the advice given to him from the company and 1 week later ...the ice cream is melting completely in the freezer again and fridge dripping with condensation. The problem can eventually can be solved however you will have to go through a fair bit of "try this and see how it goes" before you may end up with a properly working fridge. Visually a good looking fridge with tempered glass shelving. Good size and 3year manufacturer warranty. Freezer over froze however didn't even freeze the ice cream, the freezer temperature slider would not move when freezer fully frosted. As a result of this the fridge didn't cool enough to keep milk or other perishables safe to eat and had major condensation built up in the fridge effectively making the top shelf dripping wet all the time.
Won't be buying this brand again...
Okay, so my bro bought this fridge (from Good Guys I think) back when we were sharing a house. Not sure of the exact original price but I bought it off him for $800 when he moved out and it's been such a pain.
A couple of weeks after we first bought it the freezer started to get crazy cold, and the fridge was barely cold at all. My bro called the service people and they came out and said our floor wasn't level and was causing the cooling liquid to run to the front of the freezer and ice up the vents - this forced all the air up into the free...zer and didn't let any get down to the fridge. So we were like ok, fine, and choked up the front of the fridge. In the meantime we had to blowdry the ice out of the front vent to let the cold air down to the fridge. I think my bro did this three times before we found the right level and how much to chok up the front. Then I moved house and took the fridge with me, choked it up just like before and everything was fine. A couple of weeks in, the top of the freezer is warm, the bottom of the freezer is cold and fridge is not working at all. So I call my bro and he comes over and the back fan is frozen over. So it's tilted too far backwards now and the liquid is running to back, causing ice to form on the fan. Awesome. I think it's sorted now, but it's a delicate balance between tilting it back and forth to find the right level so that no ice is forming on the vents or the fan. Also - we have to chok it up because the ridiculous little legs on the bottom of the fridge only wind up so far.

Hi Fez, to confirm the year of manufacture we will require the serial number which is generally on the inside of the fridge . If you give our friendly technical support team a call on 1800 447 367, they will be able to address your enquiry
Freezer frosting up and fridge lost it coolness. What do you think the problem is?
Hi Tania, I'm not a fridge mechanic but it sounds as though it may need re-gassing. Depending on the age (out of warranty?) you need to weigh up whether it is worth calling in a mechanic and having it re-gassed, at a sky-high price, or biting the bullet and buying a new one. Ours was 5 years old so we took the decision to get a new one. Picked up a Fisher and Paykel around the same size for just over $1000 which I think was a pretty good deal. Hard to decide on which way to go, but the fact is whitegoods are not built to last these days so you need to keep that in mind. Our old Phillips fridge chugged along for 36 years - never re-gassed, and never even serviced until one day it just died and I bought a replacement because the fridge mechanic who looked at it said the parts I needed to keep it going were no longer available. Shame!! Good luck. Peter
