Hotpoint Upright Freezer FZFM171G Review
Hotpoint FZFM171G Freezer Review - Appliances Online

1 Reason For

Good Brand

Hotpoint is one of the superior freezer manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Hotpoint also has good ratings for its medium net capacity freezers.

5 Reasons Against

Poor Owner Reviews

On average, FZFM171 owners rated this freezer 57%. This puts this medium net capacity freezer in the bottom 29% of all the medium net capacity freezers that were launched more than a year ago when ranked by average owner review score.

Defrosting Problems

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it did not have a good defrost feature. Two years ago Amazon Customer gave the product a score of 1 stars and wrote “I will not have another frost free freezer in my house, this one did freeze up at the back and after switching it off to defrost the problems got worse” in their review of this freezer.

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, the FZFM171 has an average 24 year running cost of £673 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the least economic to run freezers of this spec and age.

Very Small Freezing Capacity

At only 11 kilograms per 24 hours, the FZFM171 has a fairly small freezing capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the FZFM171. The freezing capacities of freezers of a comparable age and type to the FZFM171 range from 8kg/24h to 30kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Noise Level

The Hotpoint FZFM171 has one of the higher noise levels (42 decibels) amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age. The average noise level of freezers of a comparable type and age to the FZFM171 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 38dB to 45dB.

Other 42dB noise level freezers currently available which you might want to look at include the LEC TU55144[plb_2812896_price] which has better reviews.

Freezers with a higher noise level that might also be worth looking at include the TFF546AP[pl_2805515_price] (45dB and higher rated), or the TFF577AP[pl_2805618_price] (44dB and higher rated) both from Beko.

We got this Hotpiont Freezer as we had a small chest freezer and are getting older it wasn't so easy bending. So we now have the Hotpiont FZM171G Freezer and we are delighted with it.
