advice please about ebay ive been stupid again

i bought a fridge/freezer on ebay it stated perfect working order vgc
i went to pick it up yesterday and had a quick look then loaded it into car
prior to auction end i asked about any marks or discolouration etc and was told there was nothing a bit of jiffy wouldnt clean
once i got it home and had a proper look i realised there was a large 14" slash down the seal on fridge,the freezer handle fell of in my hand revealing big blobs of glue where it has obviously fallen of before
there are rust patches down sides with paint chipping in small areas and the handles on fridge/freezer are nicotine yellow compared to the doors which are white and the discolouration wont come off!
i phoned bosch this morning regarding a new seal for fridge and was told that a replacement seal cannot be bought as it is a sealed unit with the door
i emailed the seller about the seal and handle and and they offered to buy a replacement as i said they obviously knew it was broken
but when i told them a replacement cant be bought they basically said tough poo
i stated that the fridge is not in perfect working order as the seal has gone therefor unsafe to keep food in

what now?

There's only one way to redeem yourself edjaned and that's by telling us you paid with fake notes, other than that..... this should be made into a sticky "how not to buy from eBay".

What he said, i'm pretty sure you having a look at it at his house then taking it away with you it basically an acceptance of the condition it was in

think i may try that thanks loulou

although i agree i should have looked better i prob wouldnt of noticed the split in seal ad the door handle didnt come of when i opened it there,you dont think of opening and shutting a door a few times to test that the handle doesnt fall off

also she said perfect working order well its not with the seal not intact,she obviously knewabout the faults as when i mentioned them she said she would replace seal and door handle so she knew they were broken :x

That's right. Sellers cannot leave negative feedback for buyers.
Any update?
