Waste of money

  • Summary: Don't waste your money buy another brand.
  • Pros: Looks nice
  • Cons: Just like the other review the freezer only keeps the food frozen when it feels like. Today I've had to throw food out again because it has got mould on it, it must have defrosted and then frozen again and I hadn't noticed. This has happened so many times that I've lost count. It started doing this months ago and I thought I was doing something wrong like not shutting the door properly. Unfortunately it's nearly two years old so I don't think I have any come back with...

  • Summary: My last fridge freezer lasted 10 years and was fault free and frost free thoughout until the last year. This Hotpoint seems unreliable and I suspect would cost a fortune in repair costs to keep working. The irritating thing is not having confidence that the food will stay frozen. So I have ditched it. Best advert for extended warranties I have seen for a long time. I will never buy a Hotpoint product again.
  • Pros: Its narrower than the normal fridge/freezer I have had one for over a year and to be fair it has not actually broken down.
  • Cons: The product has barely been functional. Whatever the temperature setting its been impossible to get the fridge cool and the freezer frozen to the recommended temperatures, even though at times both wre OK. The freezer is supposed to be frost free but needed defrosting every couple of months with a lot of ice forming within it.. It seemed to work better after a defrost but not my idea of frost free. Yet at the same time the freezer temperature varied across the compart...

  • Summary: Overall the Hotpoint FFA52S is a great fridge freezer, with a lot of room, good lighting, and excellent freezing and cool down times.
