    Longest guarantee for new frost free fridge freezer 18th May 17 at 1:20 AM
    So t would seem my old trusty hoover fridge freezer has died after 12 years , anyhow we have one of those Domestic & General policies that means they will give £XXX towards a new one, so looking at new ones now and was wondering what manf does the longest warranty i know Hoover do a 10 year deal on parts only but was wondering does anyone else know about longggg warranty or manf that have superb reliability.

    Guarantees are one thing, but your costs will also be determined by the overall efficiency of the appliance in its lifetime....and frost-free tends to be less efficient.

    My f/f is rated A+++ but I couldn't find a frost free model with that rating.

    Not quite, but I take your point that things have moved on in the last two years or so. I used AO as my source then, but bought via the kitchen company, as they were cheaper by far.

    All of them are over £200 more than I paid, which is 7 years of running costs, never mind those £1k more!

    Miele offer two years as standard, and you can extend it to 10 years for the bargain price of just £349...
    JL offer two years on all large electricals.
    But in reality you just don't need this cover. White goods are very reliable these days, and if there is a manufacturing fault, it's likely to develop inside the first two years. Even more so with a fridge/freezer, which has very litle that can go wrong.
    Hoover offer a 5 year parts only warranty: the catch is that the 'free' parts have to be supplied and fitted by a Hoover service agent, and the inflated labour costs will more than cover the cost of the parts.

    I think they've been reliable for a long while.

    I bought our first f/f in 1977 and we were still using it in the noughties. It was the door rubber, not the electrics/ mechanicals, that finally gave up.

    Ikea have five years warranty as standard.
    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/appliances/fridges-freezers/kylig-fridge-freezer-a-no-frost-stainless-steel-art-00282354/

    Not a huge range, but will represent good value if you were to buy additional warranty cover.
