Summary: I wish I had read these reviews before ordering my Hotpoint Quadrio! The fridge is a nightmare, within the first month of use the noise began. I called Hotpoint and they told me that if their engineers came out and found no fault I would be charged. This put me off from booking the appointment. This morning about 5.20am I was awaken by the most frightening noise I have every experienced inside a building, it sounded like a jumbo jet was trying to take off in my flat.
Summary: Had my quadrio for 2 years makes very loud bang/ cracking dog is scared to death of going in kitchen everything else ok though I don't think hotpoint should say this is normal when it clearly isn't .
Summary: poor is understatement, called engineer after purchasing, he said loud noises are normal, I asked why they are not on display and switched on so people can see and hear what they are purchasing and the engineer said because nobody would buy them
Summary: Bought mine from Currys Falkirk, reported it for loud noises within a couple of weeks, waited over a week for engineer who needs his lugs testing, said that the loud annoying unbearable noises were normal and if I called him out again I would be charged for it and also I was to get used to it, he said it will get worse when it starts freezing up and the heater has to come on, I think these fridge freezers should be put into shipping cartons and dumped at the bottom of...
Summary: First one I had exploded and caught fire after a year. It took 10 weeks for Hotpoint to replace it. New model freezes up with ice and there is a very loud whirring motor noise coming from the back - like someone is trying to start a motor bike in my dining room. I daren't go out and leave it switched on now, in case the same thing happens again and it burns the house down. You'd be a fool to buy this thing!
Summary: Had same noises as below have to take apart every 3 months to melt the ice that builds up next to the fan!! Freezer stops working once ice has built up only 3 years old and i'm having to buy a new one load of rubbish do not buy!!
Summary: Continual build up of ice on rear wall of fridge. Only been in use for 6 months. Contacted Hotpoint - don't know how to fix problem and gave me phone number to call engineer - Not good enough Hotpoint. I will now try to switch off my fast freeze as suggested in other review. Also have strange noises especially when it has not been opened often.
