Operating conditions

  • do not install in the immediate vicinity of heat sources (batteries, radiators, stoves and electric stoves) so that it is exposed to direct sunlight;
  • do not put hot food inside;

  • follow the rules for placing products and do not overload the cameras with large volumes (optimal when the chambers are not more than 2/3 full);
  • monitor the value of the set temperature;
  • do not open the doors too often, since this leads to a violation of the temperature regime;
  • if you disconnect the refrigerator from electricity for a long time, leave doors open to avoid unpleasant odors.

Selection Tips

When choosing a refrigerator, there are a few things to consider:

  • Kitchen dimensions. Do not think that only a small refrigerator is allowed for a small kitchen. The modern range of Vestel refrigerators allows you to choose the best option for rooms of any size – from low ones with a small freezer, to spacious two-compartment, high and narrow, which also do not take up much space..

  • Number of people in the family. It is clear that the larger the family, the larger the refrigerator is required. If there is a small child in the house, then often a large freezer is needed for storing fresh frozen vegetables or a special section for baby food (more often these are just door shelves).

  • Interior. This household appliance is an important element of the kitchen interior, and should not stand out from the general style. And if the classic white version fits almost everywhere, then when choosing black or bright color, you should think or consult with the designer. Also, remember that bright colors only whet the appetite, while white calms down..

Reviews

Buyers leave conflicting reviews about refrigerators of this brand. The main advantages are usually indicated by a relatively low cost and a long service life (up to seven years or more), as well as a warranty period of 3 years. Many people like the ease of handling and quiet operation that they fit perfectly even in small kitchens.

Complaints are often caused by the fact that in case of repair it is difficult to get the necessary parts.. Often they have to be ordered from Turkey, which delays repairs and makes them very expensive.. Customers complain about slow service centers and poor service.

Also, minor breakdowns often occur – glass cracks or plastic breaks on the shelves, sometimes the seal on the doors leaves. Such cases are not covered by the warranty and parts cannot be replaced..

In general, users agree that the quality of Vestel refrigerators is quite consistent with their price, and they are a perfectly acceptable budget option..
