A child lock is often found on high spec fridge freezers and American fridge freezers. The child lock is used to lock any LED or LCD displays, so that children cannot press the buttons and alter your carefully chosen settings. It is important to note a child lock does not lock the fridge freezer – even with the child lock activated, you will still be able to open the fridge and freezer doors.
Fridge Freezers With Child Safety Locks
Child locks are found on both combi and American style fridge freezers with displays that allow you to alter temperature settings, holiday modes and fast freezing and cooling options. Because manufacturers know that kids like to press buttons, they’ve included a child lock feature to stop little fingers altering your options, so you won’t come home one day to find your freezer’s completely defrosted, or everything in your fridge has iced up!
The Siemens KA62DP92GB is a gorgeous looking American fridge freezer full of features (including a child lock). There’s a water and ice dispenser, which is a great feature for getting the whole family drinking more water, and it has a Super Freeze option which locks in the freshness of fresh food that you want to freeze, so that it tastes that extra bit delicious when you eventually get round to cooking it.
Remember that a child safety lock doesn't lock the appliance - just the digital display.
