Thanks, I've been after one for the wife.







Hope she fits in it!

Looks good and comment say people use it in the garage.
But can't find info in description whether its suitable for garage hmm.

Found this on different website *
This 197 litre Chest Freezer has a large capacity, so is perfect if you're short on freezer space. With adjustable feet and an adjustable thermostat, this freezer can be adapted to suit you and is designed to work outdoors, so can be stored in a garage. This freezer also features a counter balance lid.

Looked up its manual and it says it is suitable for garage. Argos website also says suitable for outbuildings.

Link to Users Manual

Thanks KimKaye needed one of these

Would this be suitable for selling in a yard sale in the future with a body inside?

great price!

Thanks for that OP! Don't forget c1.5% via Quidco/TCB too! Note the £25 code only runs until tomorrow Sun 25/9.

Full manual online at:
http://www.productcare.co.uk/russell-hobbs-rhcf200-white-200l-chest-freezer.html
Though here's a more recognisably "official" link, although the manual itself actually links to the above website:
http://mda.russellhobbs.com/white-197-litre-chest-freezer.html
amusing how capacity is reported as 197/198/200 litres.

Some notes from 16 page PDF Manual:
1. They say allow 3 hours after delivery (ie shake-up) before powering up for first time. - page 7
2. As androoski has reported - does explicitly say "This Appliance is suitable to be placed in garages." - page 7
3. Describes it having a defrost drain hole at back left corner/side of the unit [ie relevant to positioning it] - page 10

If ordering and choosing to have "product recycling @ £0.00" ie old appliance removed, don't get confused as I did when their order process shows items as "Delivery only... collection not available". That just refers to the new ordered item, ie you can't collect your freezer from a store; it does not mean they've said "we won't recycle/collect old item".

PLUS: Their website registration as well as extending the maker's warranty from 1yr to 2yrs for free, also offers 2yrs extended cover (ie 4yrs total) for £29.99. (Otherwise your consumer rights are against the reseller, not manufacturer, and realise it wont cover loss of food due to product failure - should be checking your house contents insurance for that sort of cover.)

You should try taking your head out of it more often though.

Thanks. I've been after a freezer for outbuildings as the current one in my garage isn't suitable so ends up with condensation all over it and full of ice.

Been looking to upgrtade the old Scandinova chest freezer I have in the garage. Still works but is over icing and rusting on the outside. Got it with the house and goodness knows how old it is. It's still functioning and I think it's about 250 litre and currently full.

This is such a good deal but can I sacrifice 53 litres.. hmmmf.

With the energy savings you derive from a modern freezer you could rebut the good filling that extra space and still have money over... assuming they are crispy pancakes and not foie gras.

Fridges and freezers are by far the largest consumers of electricity in the home, replace it.

Won't let me use the code anymore :-(

works for me

Just point out that this is a ST climate class, meaning it works well between 18c and 38c.... so if you have it a coldish place it will stop working. 18c in reality is probably more like 14c..
So in reality it needs to be a palce were it's constantly warmish.

Would love to know the difference in energy savings in the two chest freezers:

The new Russel Hobbs states Energy Consumption 219 kWh/annum
The amount of electricity used per cycle, as measured in kilowatt-hours

My old Scandinova states 180 kwh/24 H as pictured

Are you saying that this cannot be kept out in the garage in winter, as opposed to what the manual says (no winter caveats)?

That seems a bit excessive. Since electricity is typically charged at around 10p per kWh, that would mean your freezer would cost £18 a day to run, or £6570 a year. I think there is probably a decimal point in there somewhere. Perhaps 1.80?

I've got an ancient freezer but it has given fabulous service (one hinge finally died last month). I'm worried about these modern appliances that give up the ghost within 5 years. If my freezer was human it would have left home and been a voter for a good few years. Conflicted.

Oh dear. Wish I'd read this first. Living in a pretty cold Scottish town, tempratures get down to freezing during the winter. SHIZ!!

The freezer would be suitable, but a yard sale wouldn't. PM me for interested buyers.

Think you are doing very well for your electricity unit cost. I am with Scottish Power Fixed Price,Dual Fuel, and paying by direct debit. Supposed to be a good deal. Almost impossible to find the current unit cost on their website. Pages of bumph, with no unit costs displayed. More like 14 pence per unit as far as I can tell, plus daily service charge.

Think if you post your supplier at 10 pence per unit it would reach 10000 points. I promise to vote it hot.

Just foned Tesco. It's not frost free.

Whilst technically it's an ST class freezer, manufacturers will guarantee freezers for use below the minimum temperature. Beko, for example, guarantee their freezers can be used down to -15C. In this case Russell Hobbs claim it can be used down to -5C, so it should be fine for use in a garage.

Same issue here - ours is over 30 years "mature" but is definitely in its dotage and this offer was irresistable in pensioning it off - ie rusting/noisy/using-too-much-electricity/etc - at long last.

As detailed in manual - page 10 - "Defrost twice a year or when a frost layer of approximately 7 mm (1/4”) has
formed." - at least has drainage to facilitate!

I'm glad tahir_owen pointed out that this range is only classed as ST - I never knew this and wondered why Russell Hobbs freezers are always the cheapest ones. Now I understand that even though they can be placed in the garage they probably won't work efficiently below 18C and could stop working all together if it gets too cold.

Having read a bit more into it I think I will wait for Beko to drop in price. Their freezers will work nicely down between -15C and 45C - so well within ranges for UK garages!

I'd be careful disposing of that old thing. Will emit a lot of CFC I imagine if it's not disposed of properly.

Dichlorodifluoromethane (R-12) is a colorless gas usually sold under the … Dichlorodifluoromethane (R-12) is a colorless gas usually sold under the brand name Freon-12, and a chlorofluorocarbon halomethane (CFC) used as a refrigerant and aerosol spray propellant. Complying with the Montreal Protocol, its manufacture was universally banned in 1996 due to concerns about its damaging impact to the ozone layer.[4] Its only allowed usage is as fire retardant in submarines and aircraft. It is soluble in many organic solvents. Dichlorodifluoromethane was one of the original propellants for Silly String. R-12 cylinders are colored white.
