Hi,I bought a fisher and paykel refrigerator E450r model for over 2 yrs now. Once you open the door, you can hear a beep sound. You can also hear this sound while the door is open and even when the door is...
I unfortunately bought the F & P 450R upright fridge with the matching freezer, recommended to us by Winnings. Expensive and possibly the worst ever appliance purchase I have made. The door handle design is pathetic and once again today, has come apart. The fridge constantly freezes up which then affects the fan, which in turn stops the fridge getting cold. To date, we have had the F & P service out, he first said he needed to get it back to the factory and we'd be up for about $900. After we advised that wasn't happening, he replaced the control unit, which had didn't clear the problem (although still cost me $300). Having no confidence in F & P, we contacted a fridge mechanic with a good name. He closed his eyes when he saw the brand and mumbled, Kiwi's revenge. Long story short, over 3 visits he, adjusted the inadequate door sensor, refitted a temp sensor which had broken from its poorly designed plastic holder, replaced all the sensors and in the end said sorry, but you have bought a lemon. I now have a choice of buying a new fridge which wont match the freezer, buy a new fridge and freezer, even though the freezer is fine, or continue with what we do now, turn the fridge off every other day for 4 or 5 hours to defrost it. My solution, do not go near Fisher and Paykel, the service and machines are just not up to it.
