I would urge anyone to read up on this manufacturer before purchasing

beko are complete rubbish but that is my opinion but people should make up there own mind

Get ready for all the.... 'it'll burn your house down and you'll die'.... posts.

Had our Beko fridge freezer since we moved into our house in 1999 and its still going strong not a problem touch wood...

All my kitchen appliances are beko, never had a problem with them

It looks like they have solved the problems with this model, it comes with its own built in fire extinguisher, called a water dispenser (_;)

my washing machine and fridge freezer are Beko. Had for 3 years so far, and not had 1 issue with them.

Had this fridge freezer for 9 months so far, it's been great

Check out the Daewoo posted on here the other day

I'm with o2 and got one for £209 with priority moments!

Try the Samsung range. Somepeople are selling them on Gumtree and one person is selling a new one boxed and sealed as an unwanted wedding gift. grab your self a bargain.

There's nowt wrong with Beko. I've got a fridge and freezer of theirs. Been going strong for yeeeeeaaaarrrs. You could probably google any manufacturer and find horror stories

I have a hotpoint fridge freezer, nothing but problems from 12 months onwards. Complained to hotpoint as the frost free freezer is not frost free and stops the fridge getting cold. There were not interested unless I paid £100 call out free....told them I would spread the good word.

Will never buy anything from hotpoint again.

nothing wrong with beko. perfectly fine.

1999? What is it rated?? F+?

We have had the larger version of this for about 6 years with no problems at all.
I agree, BEKO are not a top brand, but anyone that says they are rubbish, are talking out of their backsides.

Go to trading standards. Under the sale of goods act you have up to 6 years warranty. Push it and they will back down.

But first I would try defrosting the fridge freezer by switching it off completely for 48 hours, (might get away with 24 hours at this time of year). Most of these frost free systems rely on a unit in the freezer to produce the cold air for the fridge, but if ice builds up inside that unit, (which you can't normally see), this can then stop the cold air circulating to the fridge, which is blown into the fridge by a fan, hence the fridge does not get cold. Now you may be thinking, why should ice build up in the freezer compartment when it is frost free? This can be because the freezer door has not been shut properly, or the freezer door is left open for extended periods when food is taken out, or put in, this allows excess warm air and condensation to get in the freezer, and the frozen condensation then clogs up the freezing unit. The problem can also be caused by faulty components, like a faulty fan, but the best way to check is by doing a full defrost first. If you suspect that the freezer door may be being left open for prolonged periods, then this is the most probable cause. This might raise the question of are these type of frost free systems fit for purpose, or is it customer misuse, so that could be debatable if Trading Standards became involved.

Remembering that under Sale of Goods Act you must go to the retailer - not the manufacturer.

I have last years version of this , so dont have the ugly grab handles . I paid around the same price as it was ex display at currys and the last one .was over 300 rrp.

Anyway why on earth do you need a supposedly "posh" make for a fridge ?This is a fridge that works it keep my stuff cold (too cold bread freezes ,need to turn it down) and the freezer is massive compared to the compettion @ the same price.

13 months later it still works, so heat from me.One thing i must add if it is anything like mine it does run loud at certain times of the day.

last year when i was in turkey all tvs ,fridges in hotel were beko certainly will consider beko next time need white goods etc

Have you checked with Beko to see if a safety alert relates to your model?
See this news item from ITV news, from as recently as March 2013.
Nearly 138,000 Beko products could be a safety risk in UK homes

I have a beko upright freezer 2 years old & love it. I have Hotpoint larder fridge 15 years old and their washer dryer 12 years old going great - I think its a luck of the draw with a lot of white goods. Now watch them all break down !!
.

My daughter has this in black - large freezer ideal for a family

I have this fridge freezer, not much room inside as u have to milk cartons on the shelf, next to water dispenser on both sides it's bottle holders, & champagne & presseco bottles don't fit, wine ones do though, not much room at all in there.

Thanks for the advice, I may look into taking it further. The freezer door is definately not being left open, the freezer compartments where the food is do not get frosted up it is behind the freezer back panel. Behind the panel is the metal radiator thing that gets cold, the air is pushed in the fridge. The radiator thing is thick with ice so no air can circulate up into the fridge, you hav to take two panels off to see this though.

I read 100s of complaints about it on money saving expert and it turned out to be some control unit or something not detecting that it was getting frosty which then should put it automatically into auto defrost mode. It doesn't detect the frost and therefore freezes up.

It was alright for the 1st year then I have had to defrost it 6 times in the last 2 years. Spoke to Hotpoint and advised them it was a manufacturing defect/not as sold, but the only reply I could get out of them was "do you want us to send out an engineer, call out fee is £100" repeated 500 frickin times.

This is probably where you are going wrong, (as johnuni mentioned in post #21). your contract, under the Sale of Goods Act is with the retailer, not the manufacturer, (unless they are the same), so you should be contacting who you bought the appliance from regarding a repair or replacement, unless that retailer has ceased trading, in which case, your rights under the Sale of Goods Act probably ceased at the same time
