Looking for some oppinions.
We have a 420L Mitsubishi Top Mount Fridge, pushing 10 years old. Brought brand new. IT's lasted us pretty well, going back 4-5 years we did have to replaced the fan that pushed the cold air around, think we paid ~$400 to get that fixed, as the part wasn't common.
Now within the past 8 months we've had the issue of things freezing in the refrigeration section, depending where that item is, which shelf. Typically fruits/vegi's and the odd juice/drink. We've tried adjusting the temp control to raise it however we find that the fridge temp will go >7'C and we're worried that it might compromise certain foods. My wife has written it off as "it's on its last leg, we need a new one"
We've been burnt by a few 2nd hand purchases, so we're leaning towards something brand new. Below are our considerations;
- Volume >500L
- Don't need ice/water function in the door (no plumbing in the spot)
- Good quality
- Price $1000 +/- $200
- Moderate/cheap parts if needing repair
- Colour doesn't matter
- If i can purchase with Shopback, would be a bonus (maybe goodguys?)
I guess my trouble is I just don't know enough about the brands and don't trust sales people to give me the honest truth.
Any help is appreciated.
