Keeping your refrigeration appliances happy.

Your fridge or freezer is usually the only appliance that is plugged in and switched on all day every day. So to care for the most hard working appliance in your home we have a few handy tips. Regular maintenance will ensure that your refrigeration appliance keeps your food in peak condition, even in the warmest of weather.

  • Vacuum out the ventilation grill, on most built in appliances this grill is either under the appliance or just beside it at ground level. Removing dust means that the air flow is maximised.
  • Vacuum the back of the appliance and underneath, don't forget to check the condensate tray for any un-evapourated water or material which may start to cause an unpleasant smell in a warmer room.
  • Clean the seals on the inside of the doors, use a warm water and white vinegar solution to effectively clean debris and dust from inside the folds of the seals. This will ensure that they will work properly to keep the cool inside and the heat outside.
  • Check the drain hole in the back of your fridge, clear the small drain with a tooth pick or cotton bud to remove any small items which may block escaping water.
  • Check that no items of food or containers are touching the back wall of your fridge, this can stop any water droplets from reaching the drian hole and ultimately cause them to freeze on the back wall.
  • Clean the fridge or freezer shelves and boxes, salad containers and door balconies. Removing spills and residue will not only freshen up your fridge but also prolong the life of these working parts. Most can be washed by hand or in a dishwasher but check your manual for manufacturer instructions.

Clean refrigeration appliances work much more economically and giving your fridge freezer a good clean is like giving your car a wash and vacuum out. 

Call us if you need advice on a product which may not be working properly, we can offer some solutions such as numbers of local engineers or help in finding the most suitable replacements. 

Our lower appliance showroom is also remarkably cool in the heat of the day!!!!



May 18th 2022

We do have good stock levels of most appliances however, the below statement is an tiny taste of the information being communicated to us from several of our manufacturers and suppliers.

Please contact us by phone or email, in the first instance, to ask the status of any product. 

"The current global supply chain environment continues to be highly volatile, we have recently received notification of an imminent supply issue in relation to key electronic
components essential in the production of a number of single/compact cooking appliances. The situation is still being assessed but there is a likelihood of significantly reduced production on a number of appliances until further notice.
As a result, we are currently unable to provide any information on the expected lead-times of new
orders for the affected appliances. Please be advised that existing orders may also be subject to additional delays.
We fully appreciate the seriousness of this situation, and all alternative solutions are being carefully
reviewed with further updates released as soon as possible."

We will try to help you find a suitable alternative if the appliance you are after is affected by these delays.

Let us help you find your perfect appliance.

We're Brexit ready, are you?

With all the recent discussion around Brexit we thought we had better address the implacations it will undoubtedly have for your Kitchen project in 2021.

Our manufacturers and suppliers are working hard to ensure that appliances are available, but we are regularly hearing of disruption to supply chains already.

If the appliances you require are not ordered in time this may have a knock on effect for your project completion dates. Some items are taking 7-10 weeks so we urge you to order early !!

The below extract is from this months KKB magazine.

A kitchen retailer has many plates to spin, a typical kitchen involves coordinated product deliveries and services  across the areas of furniture, appliances, sinks, taps, solid surfaces, delivery, and installation, all being delivered to an individual customer brief within a specific and narrow window of time. I can think of very few businesses where the product delivery is as complex. Let’s not forget that this chain of events only starts once you have found the customer, designed and sold the product too.

 if it is sold with appliances or solid surfaces, it is almost inevitable these will be sourced in whole or in part in Europe, and a kitchen is only finished when its finished.

 The business of bringing products from Europe to the UK will not be the same

Brexit ready?

The Kitchen designers have had their work cut-out for them. Communicating by phone with customers to discuss designs and alterations.

All our current projects are continuing and the kitchen fitters are now booking for February-March 2021.
