Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Delivered on time. Plenty of space and shelves. Nice bright interior light. Really pleased with it Had it for about 4 weeks and no issues 20 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very highly recommended I've had this fridge freezer for over three years and I cannot praise it enough. - You don't need me to point out its fine aesthetics: quality gloss finish, very well designed handles, internal layout and light. - It's silent most of the time too. Even when it is running it's barely noticeable. The quietest fridge I've ever heard. - The running costs are low. When it's running the energy monitor barely moves. - It also doesn't kick out loads of heat (hand in hand with the low energy consumption) which just gives me peace of mind that the fire risk is lower. - Lastly, it was delivered by two charming drivers who I think appreciated how exciting the delivery was to me (I'm fairly excitable) and kept me fully informed of everything they were doing whilst moving and installing it. 18 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not impressed. I had the same problem another reviewer did. I never got to use this fridge freezer as the first one I ordered had a really bad paint finish and a scratch, the second had a bad paint finish and a dent. I decided to order a different fridge freezer in the end. John Lewis were good at sorting out the exchange but they really need to sort out the paint finish problem because the fridge freezer would have been perfect if it wasn't for that. 06 October 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Two received, both returned! Never actually plugged this item in so i am unable to comment on functionality! Unfortunately we took delivery of 2 of these, the first had dents in both fridge and freezer door and the second had a very poor paint finish on freezer door. Once I found the right person at customer care I could not fault them in organising a replacement product. We reselected an LG product as felt that the quality control for the JL product was lacking...or maybe we were just unlucky!? 14 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by really good buy! A really good layout. The light is very bright, just inside the door at the top, meaning it casts no shadows.l like the alarm, not too loud, but it lets you know if the door is not closed properly. Very quite while running. From dealing with a very knowledgeable sales person in store (Pererborough), to taking delivery of our stunning fridge freezer, l can not fault a thing. The delivery driver+ mate, unpacked,installed, and disposed of the packaging......and all with a smile. Well done John Lewis, little wonder you are the best! 10 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely big fridge The fridge/freezer was delivered a day early which was a bonus. Thrilled with the product it,is a great addition to our new kitchen. The fridge is so roomy, it will be so useful at Christmas especially. Really glad we chose this particular model, it is sometimes tempting to go with branded goods which are more expensive but this product is of the highest quality. Would definitely recommend it. 30 November 2012
