I brought this model as I always have Bosch appliances.
I too have had problems with this item - The door seal split within 6 months. I also had problems the plastic handles cracking where they fasten onto the side of the door, I had aprox 7/8 sets of handles, Bosch fitted the first few then they would just post them rather than comming out. This was during the first year. I kept complaining and they finally fitting a pair or new do0rs. touch wood the handles have been ok for the past year. Have now appeared to be having a new problem - fridge was suddendly started to freeze ecarrotts,cucumbers and lettuces? items has now just run out of the guarentee :-( anybody else had the freezing items problem
