Q & As

Lec L5010W Larder Fridge, A+ Energy Rating, 50cm Wide, White 4.4 5 42 42
Good and the Bad Good parts great size keeps food fresh as long as you keep fresh leaf food or soft fruit away from the rear of the fridge as it will spoil if it touches the wall. 18 November 2014
Great Fridge This is my third lec fridge. I have a housing for the fridge and freezer and this fridge fits perfectly in the housing. I am impressed with this updated model. I like the deep drawer for veg and salad. The shelves are glass instead of wire so much easier to clean. The inserts in the inside of the door are perfect for me. I can store milk, fruit juice etc on the bottom now which makes it easier for me to access. I have only had this for two weeks and have the setting at number 2. Everything is nice and cool inside so it looks like I will save energy as well. 26 August 2014
Lec Larder Fridge I am very disappointed with this purchase. I have only a small space in the kitchen, which holds at 50cm wide product. I visited my local John Lewis Homestore to look at this and the other option (Zanussi).. Neither were on display. By the time I made my purchase, only the Lec fridge was available. I thought I was replacing like-for-like, having had a Lec Fridge for 12 years, but this model has one less shelf and the door space is impractical with only one section suitable for 1 lt fruit juice and milk bottles. The other door space is too small to hold even standard water bottles, etc, with the result that these have to be stored sideways in a fridge on shelves which are already full. I am extremely disappointed and unhappy with the item and wish I had not made the financial commitment. I would not buy on-line again without first seeing the goods "in the flesh". 08 July 2014
excellant buy fitted in nicely in our kitchen reversible door good salad box plenty of room for all food stuff and drinks . 15 March 2014
Fridge Manual major error The manual for this fridge states that the door is reversible but needs 550mm clearance (page 4) so that the main door will open enough for the freezer door to open . This is wrong. We have about 580 clearance and the freezer door is well short of being able to open. It would need about 620mm clearance to allow this. We do not have this and cannot now use the fridge as we had intended. A simple splayed end to the door shelves would allow the freezer to open without any extra clearance being required. To badly design something and then put a caveat in the user instructions is bad enough, but to have that wrong just shows shoddyness. Another paragraph says that the fridge needs 300mm clearance at the back for proper ventilation. Another obvious mistake. How many other less obvious design faults are there in parts that we can't see? 17 January 2014
Externally neat internally poor Nice looking fridge, bright white exterior. Internally it is roomy for such a small fridge. Sadly the door food holders are of a poor quality and I fear will soon break after a few months of storing large milk bottles on the bottom door shelf. The fridge shelves are plastic with a plastic trim. The trim falls off very easily and if you catch the shelf with a container you are removing the shelf comes out with the container. Rather disappointing overall. 10 October 2013
Good fridge, shame about delivery! A basic larder fridge! It works efficiently and is fairly quiet although one criticism is that the lip handle for the salad drawer is right at the bottom, so you have to bend right down to the floor, to pull out the salad drawer. Whether it lasts 34 years as with a Lec fridge we previously had, and is still running as a backup, remains to be seen! It is not as sturdy as the previous one. Also a shame that a long standing British based Company (Glen Dimplex who have taken over Lec) now has to have the fridge manufactured in China!! Unfortunately the choices for a 500mm wide unit are rather limited and the Zanussi alternative on the JL website was not available at the time of ordering. Not quite sure what the JL description “egg tray” means, as there is no plastic egg holder with the fridge! However, the reason that I only give it 4 stars, is the delivery delay. When ordering on line, I was told it would be delivered within 7 days direct from the manufacturer. However, I had a call from Lec after 3 days to say that delivery would not be for another 6 weeks due to production problems and I was given a firm delivery date at that time. However, I received a call from JL customer services a few days before, confirming another delivery date! The JL customer Services team have been excellent in all this confusion and they did match the price of another competitor by a 20% reduction and they also gave me a discount as a gesture of goodwill, for the poor service. So all in all, I got the fridge at an excellent price. Unfortunately the two chaps from the courier company for Lec were not very helpful and not like the usual JL friendly delivery team and they did not take the old fridge or unpack it. JL say this is because it is direct from the manufacturer, so be warned if you are expecting the old fridge to be taken, even at a small cost! 01 October 2013
Cool customer Although fairly basis this is a well designed and quiet running fridge. The deliver time and service was excellent and the two year warranty is an added bonus. So much simpler to order on line and have it delivered without any hastle. 18 December 2012
