I'm getting seriously fed up with fridge/freezers, in the last 16 years
I have gone through *four*
of them in two houses which have failed in
Zanussi - Loud howling noise
Electrolux - Cooling failed, compressor still running
Hotpoint - Complete failure (I checked fuses, connections etc)
Electrolux - Ticking noise, fridge failed (freezer still works)
Having talked to friends I think we must be incredibly unlucky, most
people seem to own fridge/freezers for 10 years or more without any
My problem is that now we need to get another fridge/freezer, and I've
realised that when I built the space for the fridge I left 3 cm at the
sides as per instructions but that the fridge we got was 55cm wide
whereas most of the new fridges seem to be 60cm wide. That means a new
fridge will fill the gap almost completely!
My question is, what is the gap at the sides for? Is it for ventilation
(like the rear gap) or is it simply so you can move it in and out and to
ensure the door can open? If it's to ensure it can move in and out then
I can build a small platform on wheels to stand it on, which would also
help get air underneath to the back.
Secondly, can anyone recommend a make of fridge that is likely to last
more than 4 years? We are considering a Samsung, does anyone have
anything good or bad to say about their fridges?
