Frost won't form in the freezer as its evaporator mechanism is kept clear by a heater which cuts in automatically at just the right moment. The fridge defrosts by water draining away through the hole in the drip trough at the back and evaporates.
I paid £339.99, but I think it was worth every penny. Not only did it come with an initial period of 12 month guarantee, but also with a free 5year parts guarantee. The instruction book is very simple to read and understand. Energy efficiency is A.
The thermostat dial on the control panel sets the temperature of both the fridge and the freezer. The higher numbered settings are the coldest.
One of the things is though is when the temperature of the air surrounding the fridge becomes too cold: then the air temperature in the fridge will not rise enough to switch the cooling unit back on. This will cause the food in the freezer to become warmer.
Setting the thermostat dial to 0 will stop cooling in both fridge and freezer. Putting dial at setting 2 for a well ventilated room with no heating, dial setting at 3 with normal heating and ventilation and putting dial at setting 4 for warm room with central heating turned up, or boiler in same room.
Note this product will not maintain correct storage temperatures if located in a cold place such as an unheated garage, outhouse or cellar.
The fridge is spacious and you can put food anywhere, with salad crisper, egg rack, and interior light. The two adjustable glass shelves are easy to clean also.
Also the Freezer, you have 4 baskets which you cannot see what in them until you pull drawers out. It has a fast freeze, ice cube tray.
Height is 176cm Width is 54cm. The energy consumption is 322 kwh/year also the net for fresh food is vol 160 litres and for the freezer it is 81 litres. 4 star rating though.
