Consumer review (

Very happy with this fridge.


We bought this fridge in Jan 2016, and have been extremely happy with it. It looks great, and the door handles are particularly effective (in the way they push the door open without any force on the door seals). For a small fridge (narrow, and not too...

Constantly breaking down and too noisy.


oblem I find with this fridge, it leaks like a sieve. Often I found water all over the floor and in the bottom of the container. It was a nightmare. Luckily, Miele has decided in good faith to replace this fridge. This will be my third fridge/freezer....

This is a crime


This fridge is a fraudulent example of how bad big companies can go. The fridge only has Miele logo while being produced by a backyard company. WARNING - DO NOT BUY IT! It does not cool - it breaks down every 6 months - it is worse than the cheapest...

so far a really GREAT fridge


viously owning a Fisher & Paykel, which never seemed to keep anything cold enough, this fridge keeps everything really cold & works exactly like the brochure says it would, as well as running reasonably quietly. internally it is small, but surprisingly...

Low quality, terrible after service


ed system and by law it's covered. Also advised that the fridge is basically not fixable so I should get a replacement. By then, I was hopeful, thinking it would be easy. That was 2 weeks ago. My fridge was taken away yesterday for regas which will...

Low quality, terrible after service


We bought this fridge 4 years ago and it stopped working more than a month ago. I tried to ring customer service and was told it's out of warranty ( Miele covers for 2 yrs) so it's on my own to solve the problem. 2nd call, was told Miele covers for 3...

Overpriced and underperformed lack of service.


hadn't received confirmation from miele. So far it has taken about 7 phone calls to miele. In fairness to miele after a few email conversations via their customer advocacy email address they are replacing the unit.

Originally very quiet. Drawers on bottom for freezer.

Broken down twice within 6 months. Very noisy. Quite expensive. $1800

Overpriced and underperformed lack of service.


We had this fridge for 6 months when the superfreeze motor kept running for no reason. We presumed it was because this coincided with summer. In april we got them to check it out. Miele don't service their own products in adelaide. Same problem six...

The views of a service guy


These are a reliable fridge made with embraco cooling systems which is considered to be the best in the industry. The cooling system is the heart of agood fridge so it's important. Embraco is a whirlpool owned company since the 1980's. The fridge could...

Embraco cooling system, Miele name

Shelves and door bins are old be better quality.

Exactly what I was after


With a narrow fridge space and my love of freezing home-made ready meals, bread, etc, I searched for a fridge that would meet my needs. I've had it for a year now and am still extremely happy with it: it was worth the investment (be sure to ask whether...

lots of freezer space, solid (good quality glass shelves and tough plastic drawers etc), more economical than buying a separate additional freezer, reliable brand

expensive; too tall for some standard sized fridge cavities
