I purchased the apartment as a 'new build' six years ago this Sept.The fridge freezer was a fixture and fitting and therefore purchased as part of the apartment.Berkeley Homes had created a formica cupboard housing around the appliance to look like a built in unit.
As there has now been a round robin related to the units being potentially dangerous Berkeley Homes must have purchased the units to install into their new developments.
At this moment l am unable to answer that question and really do not know how l would be able to actuall find out whether the model has been in production for more than ten years.
I will try to obtain information.
I suspect that it is a foreign manufacturer,i do not think that the Teka Fridge freezer is really a high street brand.
My assumption at this time is that Berkeley Homes purchased large quanties of the applainces to get a cheap cost per unit.
I can contact the manufacturers to ask how long the unit has been in production.As the other apartments in the block are having the suspect condenser units replaced l have an email contact.
It might take a couple of days to furnish you with the answer.
Sorry seem to have rated bad service and what you have said is excellent.
Thank you for all the help thatyou have given me today.
One last question.Would this have to be done through the Small Claims court?
Thank you again.
