I got this as a gift from my mum. The major problem with this is the cheap plastic. Nearly everything has snapped cracked. I think under heavy use maybe a breakage is expected but... (See photos) not in almost every component. It seems like its mainly the transparent plastic.
I would probably not mind it being made of cheap plastic if replacements we cheap (they are very expensive). Go to parts.hotpoint.co.uk type rka52k. If your milk shelf breaks it costs £50+ to fix.
Despite adjusting the temperature the fridge seems to frost easily.
Check out the freezer. The frosting in the freezer seems to bow the plastic down (I've defrosted it multiple times. This is not easy to do... The fold out lip for ice water to flow out doesn't work too well.
Anyway, this tugging on the drawer eventually ends up cracking the doors and they eventuality snap and have to be removed.
The ice cube makers are too difficult to use. They're a gimmick.
