Thanks for that.

This is the paint work peeling off. To be honest these kind of freezers does this alot. Its due to the water dispenser that causes this as the water seeps down from under the frame and causes this.

Now there isnt much you can do other then either remove the front plastic panel and rub the bubbled paint and try and respray it from there.

Or replace the door.

Now im assuming the appliance is out of warrenty. If so then you can try your retailer were you got it from as the law states it has to be fit for purpose for 5 years. Now this is down to a manufactring fault so you can see if they will do anything for you on this.

Thanks Daniel. I just wanted to be sure that it wasn't anything I had/hadn't done. The company I bought it from have gone into liquidation. I'll get it serviced and look at the cost of replacing the door. I notice it all the time and it's driving me nuts.
