My father has a Skandinova frost-free freezer, which he bought from
Currys when his old freezer caught fire !
Understandably he is a bit timid with domestic appliances now, and is
worried that the new freezer makes a lot of noise. He has asked at
Currys to listen to a shop floor model running, but they can't/won't
let him. They have told him to call the technical support line (which
he has, several times), but this only gives access to a secretary for
arranging an engineer home visit. The secretary cannot let my
father-in-law speak to an engineer (he simply wants to ask about noise
levels); if he calls out an engineer and the noise level is normal
then he'll be charged for a service visit.
Does anyone have practical experience of new Skandinovas ? The noise
is not associated with the compressor motor (seperate sound), but
starts suddenly and comes from about 1/2 way up the back. I personally
think it may be a frost-free fan, but I can't check for him as he
lives 250 miles away.
Any help much appreciated,
