Husky Wine Fridge
Recently (two weeks ago) I purchased a Husky Double Door Wine Fridge & Drinks Chiller (HUS-WC66B-BK-ZY) from Winning. It is a stylish unit, it looks very good BUT it is very noisy. You really do not want to install it in an area where you listen to television or conduct conversation. Had I been made aware of the noise I would not have purchased this unit.
Purchased one of these 2 and half years ago purchased at Harvey Norman had to get it replaced after a couple of months as wasn’t getting cold . Got a new one wish I just got my money back . The condensation and the water leaking down on the floor is ridiculous. Have since been advised by a rep that we should been told to get one with a heated door . Too little too late
bought one of these from HARVEY NORMAN and it lasted 6 months ...........rang Harvey and they could not pass the buck fast enough ...........over to "arisit" who sent a repair man.
he took one look and told me that he had never bothered to attempt to repair one of these fridges as they were " just not worth it" and he wrote it off.
I was lucky enough that Harvey Norman reluctantly came to pick it up gave me the money back.
advice: save your money and go for a good well known brand of white goods !!!
Fridge motor and fan are poor quality
The fridge fan runs continuously but also gets louder, it sounds like the fan moves within the housing it gets louder if you slam the door, and conversely is ok after banging the grill in front of the fan a few times.
Basically they are cheap and nasty, I wouldn’t buy one again.
Do Not Buy A Husky
I would never purchase a Husky product again. We unfortunately purchased 2 HUS-CNSIL bar fridges from Harvey Norman for our new bar area. We noticed that the granite bench tops were getting very hot at times (VERY HOT) and thought maybe they needed defrosting. No ice build up in either fridge. Rang the “extended warranty” hotline to be told they don’t have enough ventilation in the cabinets (done by a cabinet maker) so I measured specifications - more than enough room!!! So we took them out and are running them out in the open - guess what??? Still getting hot especially on top. Rang husky to ask if this is normal- told to send a copy of purchase invoice, they will get back ASAP - that was a month ago- still no reply. Rang Harvey Norman - will look into it - still no reply. Have rung to speak to sales person at Harvey Norman -
sorry, with a customer, will call you back, still waiting!!!! We are no longer using them - Had enough, Husky AND Harvey Norman have lost us, and we will tell anyone not to buy any husky product!!!
Husky Drinks and Bar Fridge
The Husky Glass Fronted Bar fridge is a great little unit for drinks and my wife also uses it to store some of her garden produce in summer. I am happy with the quality and it looks good. I did my research and bought it through HN at $550-(picked up) on special. I think it is over $700 normally, so not the cheapest.
The only slight downsides are that it can be a bit noisy when the compressor is operating, the door is not good at self-closing, which causes ice build-up if not checked and in humid conditions condensation forms on the glass. I would still recommend it though. It lives in our pantry, so it isn't an issue for noise alongside our Westinghouse fridge, which is whisper quiet.
Nov 2017-I have now had this unit 12 months, and I have to say I find the noise of it annoying as it carries quite a long way. Personally, I cannot see why it cannot be as quiet as our Westinghouse fridge nearby it. Also when it is running for awhile, the top of it gets quite warm. Given the time over again, I would do a bit more research in these facets. Always good in hindsight until you live with the device!!!
