We’ll get your new built-in fridge freezer in place, level the feet, attach your cupboard doors and take away all the bulky packaging for you. Your new appliance will need to sit for a few hours before it’s plugged in. This is important as it ensures the gas coolant inside the fridge settles.

I wasn't expecting this appliance to be up to much compared to the previous one we had,which had been installed when the kitchen was modernised before we moved in,I'd guess over 15 years ago,all praise to MFI/Hygena,the butt of so many jokes over the years.
I think,judging by the build quality,I'll do well to get 5 years from this applaince,but then is anything built to last these days?
You get what you pay for,so I can't complain.
I had to reverse the doors,which was straight forward enough thankfully as the instructions were pretty useless,(I have copious amounts of bits of white plastic left over of which I have no idea what their purpose is!)
However,please make sure you have allowed for your carcass door hinges in your measurements,as this appliance seems to be deeper at the back,which for one thing impinges on the chimney space which is not great for ventilation,and the lifetime of the appliance,as more heat means a harder working compressor. It also means lack of the ability to manouvre the applaince,which if you're not careful,means the fridge doors will not shut properly,even though the outer cupboard doors seem to.
I spent a whole afternoon tearing my hair out trying to get the larder fridge door to close with the outer door attached,all to no avail,so at the moment we have to open two doors to get into the fridge!
I will make a further attempt to solve the problem some time in the near future,but at the moment I'm cured.
I guess my kitchen was not designed for new built-in appliances.
To summarise,if you want a cheap intergrated fridge/freezer that does the job,but might not last too many years then go for it,but beware of installation problems if you don't get your measurements right,and don't allow for hinges.
Pros: Ease to use, Looks good, Value for moneyCons: Poor instructions
