Smeg Fridge/Freezer - landfill after six years!
Bought for £1600 in 2015 and at a new cost of £2000 our Smeg fridge freezer has a faulty defrost heater which is apparently obsolete so the fridge/freezer is landfill or we can manually defrost every two weeks or so! It has therefore cost us £333
Smeg have offered us 30% off a new one but why would I do that and run the high risk of having to scrap it again in a few years? I read that the average life of a fridge is 20-25 years and in my business I must ensure that the security systems we install can be maintained for at least 10 years. The "Right to Repair" Act is in now but that means nothing to Smeg. Their Environmental Policy on their website is also entirely contradictory to their "real-life" policy.
Shocking and to be avoided in future.
