Stay away from this company as their customer service can be dreadful. If you go to Trust Pilot, on first impressions they don't appear too bad but if you read the bad reviews you get a taste of what might come your way. My experience a few years ago was very negative. I had bought a fridge freezer that broke after a year and a half and when I contacted them about it, their approach appeared to be to be as rude as possible so I would go away. I was going to take them to small claims court but they were intimidating, phoning and leaving me aggressive messages so that I had to ask them only to contact me in writing and not to leave phone messages. My feeling is that they are a fairly small company and they have no overheads so they don't want the hassle of having to deal with goods that are faulty later down the line. If all goes to plan, they are fine. If you have a problem later, they don't want to know.

No it was the 60/40 fridge freezer
They also have hotels o.O
They also make some nice cranes. https://www.liebherr.com/en/gbr/products/mobile-and-crawler-cranes/mobile-cranes/mobile-cranes.html
It lasted ten years?
EXACTLY! Word of advice never trust a man and his measurements ;) got a delivery of a Kenwood fridge yesterday and the delivery men were like ‘I take it there’s another door to go through?! It ain’t going in there and we only get 17 minutes a delivery, we’ve got another one to do after this.’ Douche bags. Just left it at the front door. We tried taking the doors of the fridge and the crappy screws began to flush so we had to take the handles off and it just squeezed in with some help from a neighbour and a little ramp!
Kenwood is a Currys own brand for fridge freezers now. If you order a stainless steel product check it for dents when they deliver.
Damn just bought this few weeks ago for around 480. Actually pretty good fridge so far
We went for a Kenwood one that was £369 a few weeks ago when we looked. Yesterday was £269! Was very COOL deal 8)
Saw this at curry’s.. the drawers take too much unnecessary space
TCB pays the John Lewis cashback only in Avios points so going through Avios directly is definitely a better option. I don't collect Avios point and am wondering if I am missing a trick :)
No cash back, only Avios points. Don’t knock w if the TCB perk is in addition to cash
That sounds much better, thank you for that :D
Almost 3000 Avios via BA e-store
Been out of stock since the posting of the miele sale post
Miele FF made by Liebherr who produce fantastic appliances.
a very warm welcome to hukd newbie.have some heat :)
Ok... it WASN’T availible for delivery; now it is, in which case that’s a much better deal. Thanks.
That’s the product I linked to in my post; it’s not availible for delivery.
Just search the model number HSC574 https://www.hughes.co.uk/product/kitchen-appliances/refrigeration/fridge-freezer/hoover/hsc574w
I can't see this model in any colour, for that price on Hughes website? Thanks
Thanks for posting anyway OP! Was worth a try
Just had cancellation email through :(
Yup cancellation here too
thanks @blaggy59 :)

Good evening bargain hunter ;)
good evening newbie and welcome to hukd.heat from me :)
Contact John Lewis and tell them you found it cheaper... they should price match it
The grill (or condenser for the technical term) is sealed into the sides of this machine. As far as I'm aware, no Samsung fridge freezers have a condenser on the back.
It's about an 45 mins work. The user manual gives you the full details how to perform it. It's pretty straight forward. Just need a screwdriver/drill and a 10mm socket.
What is the back of the fridge like ? is it all sealed or does it have a grill ?
Got it at £349 from John Lewis yesterday, and probably would still pay the extra £20 to get it from them as always find them great to deal with delivery and if anything goes wrong they get it sorted. Currys on the other hand have proved a royal pain in the ass with past dealings. Maybe they are different now..
This would have been a good deal with almost any other retailer apart from Currys. They delivered my one with a dent in the side without the original packaging. Then I got them to return 20 mins later to collect it. I saw them put it into a different manufacturers box. It looks like they could be passing off ex display or damaged models as new. I wouldn't trust this lot no matter how low their prices go.
£399 for the black one. How do you get the price on that one down?
its £329 now !
They will not as it’s not displayed publicly on the page 😔
Thanks for this! Will John Lewis price match on the discount code?
Cheaper on Hughes.
Just ordered it from John Lewis at £349.99, plus removal of old one for £20.00, so £369.99 all in. Thanks to the op for the heads up about this model. (y)
So they've installed a space taking tap in the front that you have to fill yourself, wow, I can do that myself and still have shelf space to store stuff.
From a jug filled by a tap
Chins up everyone it’s now £349.99 at curry’s.
Ordered one as well, thanks
Thanks, have just ordered one.
Manufacturer warranty 2years
How long is warranty? If only a year or two its well worth paying extra to extend to five years......mine was £120 to extend and u can get through 2 of these in that time if they break down. Don't bother with water dispenser as you lose a door shelf which is precioussssssss.......
Been good to me (y) (y)
Here comes the troll here comes the troll
Actualy yeah ours kenwood, and I though it was. Lol me👏 looks very very similar dont even notice different make
The wire which feeds door panel. Guy who comes to fix told me this wires are very crapy ones in these fridges they just broke after normal door usage. So i just unlucky with that probably
Curry’s don’t sell Fridgemaster. I’m assuming yours is a different brand of American Fridge Freezer?
I would like one with the ice dispenser, one that connects to the water supply instead of user fillable.
God damn it I bought this exact fridge from Curry's less than a month ago. You cannot make it up.
It's pretty clear that they either license to Currys or exclusively sell large appliances through Currys. You can't find them on their own website, and I can only seem to see them advertised/sold by Currys. If they weren't licensing, then Currys would be committing a rather large amount of copyright and trademarking laws. Surely, DeLongi wouldn't stand for that!?! As for DeLongi not wanting to hurt their brand...This is why they still trade these items under the Kenwood name, many large companies do this sort of thing i.e the own lower standard/quality companies to be able to trade at the lower end of the market as well as the upper end. A couple of examples of this are Toyota owning Daihatsu, and VW Group owning Skoda, and of course DSG owning Currys. It's a practice, that I would say is outdated, as the information about company ownership is readily available, unlike 20 years ago. Either way, the Kenwood brand is owned by DeLongi, not Currys.
Have a look at the disclaimer label inside the display unit in curry's. It says the name and AFTER sales is is exclusively liscenced to DSG group.
The noise will likely be caused by build up of ice on the condenser unit. If you can plan for a full defrost for a couple of days, it should go back to silent operation. Often the frost free heating element isnt powerful enough to melt several years worth of build up :(
not plummed :(
Bush. No thanks
...AND I was looking at the freezer part (lol) Did wonder, "What kind of fridge doesn't have an interior light?"! Time for bed!!
Didn't see that. Spec on website said otherwise. Thanks, Devinn. Time to replace the fridge freezer me thinks (y)
It says there is here, from the product information
No interior light 😏
Its reduced to £399 as well, normally £449 or £429
I used the android app. If ever I use a browser I use an new incognito window. Never had an issue yet.
thank you, bought yesterday separately fridge and wash machine and still no track, well will need to wait a bit
It showed the pending cashback within 10 mins.
OP if I may ask how long it took for you to track the transaction via top cash back? thank you
Probably will not affect most people that buy this but just a heads up, if you need to reverse the door opening form standard you need to tilt (to about 45 degrees) or as per instruction lie the fridge freezer on its back. Just letting people know as this info was not available when I bought this recently, you find out when you take the info sheet out of the fridge!
Mine arrived today. Had not had the chance to switch it in yet as I had to clean all the components out. There was nothing good on black Friday. This fridge is great so far Edit fridge works fine. Guys who delivered it was great. They had to remove the fridge doors because it wouldn't fit through my doors. The freezer lights up and is amazing. So far very happy with the purchase :) Had to wd40 the labels off but otherwise faultless
Mine was DOA and the process of returning has been horrendous, Robert Dyas people are great but their internal systems are awful.
Yes it's frost free. Delivery is a nightmare only weekdays Tuesday to Thursday. It will be delivered on the 20th. Might delay until December so I can see if anything good comes up on black friday
Is it frost free? Couldn’t see that in the spec hmm
Would be interested to hear what you guys think of the fridge freezer once you have it. Thinking about buying but would be kept boxed up for few months in garage until kitchen is re-fitted.
