Guide :Freezers : 9.9 cu. ft. / 280 liter Upright Freezer HVA280K
Hoover HNU271AFFAL I have this "frost free" freezer & have to manually defrost it every 2 months or so as the fan in it seems to get stuck ( I assume with ice?)After that it works fine for a while. It is only one year old! Are these frost free units known to be very unreliable? I had an old LEC conventional freezer for 22 years before that only needed a defrost every 3 years or so & never let me down!
I am seriously thinking of dumping this & buying another conventional unit as I am fed up of losing all my food.
Maybe they need another few years to get these working reliably? I think any device with a fan in it would be prone to failures?
can you recommend a good one to buy? ( at least 8 cu ft, upright)
