For that size fridge with a freezer it is pretty decent if you ask me. Do you have some dimensions?

Also have some heat.
#2
Dimensions added!
#3
great price
#4
anyone know delivery charge info?
#5
Looks pretty good for the money! Fridge Freezers of this width are usually a fair bit more that this, even the rubbish makes.
#6
not frost free
#7
Does it come flat-packed? :)
#8
Yes, that's the going price for it but its a nice one!

We had this for years and it was perfect, nothing went wrong and I didn't loose a lot of money when I sold it coz its so cheap to buy, so you can never loose more than £150 ;) which is good for a fridge freezer.

We didn't have any frost problems either.

Looks good and the fridge compartment is much bigger than the freezer which is what you want in this size fridge/freezer

Manual defrosting is a real pain - probably worth stretching a few more quid to find one with auto-defrost...
#10
Delivery on the website is £35. TBH if you wait fridges come down to this sort of price at the likes of Comet and Currys regularly as special deals. Some friends just received delivery of their Samsung frost-free fridge freezer with two year warranty that they picked up in the sale from Comet for about £270. I think the extended warranty and frost-free feature more than make up for the additional £35 cost. Obviously this is a good price if you need a fridge now, but if there's no rush I'd say wait and keep your eyes open for other deals.
#11
Good price,

Perfect for let properties where you don't have to worry whether it's frost free or not.

Cheers

Would this be suitable for a Garage? Was told I need to get Twin Thermostat for a garage but can't find one unless you pay about £500!!

I have this one which is fine in an unheated room such as a garage. The fridge light can be permanently switched on to stop it from freezing in cold weather. I have had it for a year without any problems in the cold weather. Not that cheap but less than £500!

Oh horror! Cheaper to leave the door slightly open...! Or is that for below 0 degrees? If so it's not a horror!
#16
Hey this has a 5 year warranty (all appliances from IKEA do) so that makes quite a difference.
:thumbsup:
Haven't bought yet but am pretty sure will do within the hour .. don't think there is anything else in the price range with 5 years piece of mind.
I have been told (from IKEA staff) IKEA's appliances are built either by Whirpool or (another). So they are not fantastic but if they fail you have 5 years of warranty.
#17
I'm buying one of these tomorrow but have to transport it on it's side in a transit van...this is ok right? and how long do I need to leave it to settle before turning it on? 24 hours? any shorter?

fridge / freezers should never be put in an outbuilding as they cost a fortune to run and are not designed for it. You will invalidate any warranty too.

Fridges / freezers actually work by heating refridgerant fluid so cost far more to run if the ambient surrounding temperature is cold (e.g a garage in winter).
#19
Fridges/freezers do not work by "heating refrigerant fluid" - unless they are the ammonia-based absorpion type, which are limited to tiny ones used in boats etc. They work using a compressor which converts the refrigerant from a gaseous state to a liquid state, and as a consequence its temperature rises, which is how heat is "pumped" from the interior of the fridge - the higher temperature of the liquid refrigerant allows heat to be dumped into the room via the radiator at the back of the fridge.

The lower the ambient temperature, the more efficiently the fridge will run, both for this reason and because heat will leak into the fridge more slowly.

There are of course other issues - if the temperature outside is actually lower then the temperature inside the fridge then you have a problem, and cheap and nasty fridge-freezers which only have one thermostat are designed to operate over a narrow range of room temperatures which just about maintain the correct relative levels in fridge and freezer. But there is no fundamental reason why it has to be indoors and a lower ambient temperature certainly won't make it more expensive to run - quite the opposite, in fact.

Mine has been in my garage for over 20 years, still works perfectly.;-)

OK - thanks for the info. That'll teach me for using the internet for research :-D

Although you yourself state it shouldn't really be in an outbuilding as obviously in winter the temperature outside will be lower than the fridge quite often. Interesting points though so thanks.
#22
Yes, life is not black and white - I'm not saying there's no potential problem. Another one is that you are likely to get rust.
#23
Can these be collected? Don't want to turn up with a van only to be told they're delivery only.
#24
with reference to the warranty comment above, the warranty for all ikea appliances is 5 years unless it's called LAGAN, then it's 2 years....so 2 years it is.

Bought it, looks really smart, very spacious...makes the odd strange noise like someone playing a musical instrument of sorts and a sound similar to a toilet cistern filling up but nothing you can't live with.
