Norfrost was a small British manufacturer that made chest freezers in Castletown, Scotland almost as far North as you can possibly go.
The Norfrost brand was around for around forty years making chest freezers on the site in Scotland. Norfrost also make chest freezers for other companies that are rebranded.
Other products, such as wine coolers, seemed to be rebranded Chinese products.
Sadly however the company closed down and all the tooling and production was moved whne the business was bought (after months of being down) by Ebac.
Norfost Market Position
Usually found at the lower end of the market but Norfrost do seem to have moved slightly to a more mid-market position in recent times.
Being British and having been around for a long time these freezers are very familiar to us and, they are actually very good in our experience. We have little reservation in recommending the Norfrost chest freezers.
Out of warranty many repairers availbale through our engineer search will have little trouble in repairing a Norfrost chest freezer.
Norfrost Spare Parts
We have little to no trouble getting spare parts for Norfrost although, the only two things that generally ever go wrong are door hinges and the odd thermostat. Anything else faulty however is not a DIY repair as it will be refrigerant related.
Lids, door seals and so forth are now completely unavailable for older products that were made in Scotland.
Please do not use the comments below to ask for technical help or repair advice on any Norfrost appliance as the engineers will not see the request here. Please use the forums where more help will be available.
