Hygena Appliances

No Longer Trading

MFI acquired the Hygena brand name in 1982 although it had been in existence as a kitchen brand since the 1930's. 

In general it appears that Hygena is sold below the Diplomat brand name in price terms which is also owned by MFI with QA Hygena and some Schreiber branded appliances.

In the Hygena range there are cookers, ovens, hobs, hoods, dishwashers and washing machines which are predominantly sold through Howden Joinery and the MFI stores. Most of the Hygena appliances sold were either built in or integrated as they were sold with new kitchens.

Newer products sold through Argos are merely rebranded own label brand products that there is extremely limited support for.

  Hygena Market Position

Hygena was catering for people on a budget and the appliances do reflect this.

Diplomat, the sister brand from MFI was the more upmarket products.

  Hygena Service

After the collapse of MFI any official service for Hygena applainces ceased however almsot all teh appliance repair comapnies listed in our engineer search will undertake repairs on Hygena products.

  Hygena Spare Parts

Spares pricing is actually pretty good and these appliances are easily put right when they go wrong. MFI have taken nice simple machines and used those as a budget range, not trying to be too fancy or overcomplicate matters so almost any repairer can service them.

The only snag there is that many repairers do not know that they are re-badged products that they will have often have seen in a different guise and may well reject any calls on that basis.

Spares are almost all easily obtained from UK Whitegoods store as we are a leading online supplier of Hygena spares with many in stock and normally a maximum of few days lead time on non-stock spares.

Please do watch when ordering however as "Select 600" or "Select 900" and so on are model ranges, not model numbers and it is easy to order incorrect Hygena spares if you are using only these numbers as a reference.

Please also note that we can only supply spare parts for the applainces and not for kitchen units etc from Hygena.

However with the closure of MFI some spare parts for these appliances are getting harder to come by and this has pushed up some prices as well.

Built in grill/oven and ceramic hob
Both my built in grill/oven of model code APL 4212 (mocca colour) and the ceramic hob Apl 1315 Mocca have defective continuous variable knob control - meaning we don't have the required temperature as per the knob control.

Please advice if the problem is from the knob control or other parts of the appliances.

Please treat these issues as urgent

Hi,Sorry, we only do parts for the Hygena appliances, not the kitchens.
Lucy Kennedy
All I require is a drawer runner which is fitted in a recess half way up the side of the drawer. My twenty year old kitchen could then last forever.
Kenneth Watt
Hi Jackie,that depends on who the warranty is with, if it's MFI then it isn't worth the paper it's printed on now.Overfreezing is probably a thermostat/control PCB problem which is available in our store, just search for part number 510252000. It isn't cheap and parts are starting to go unavailable for that model.
Jackie Honey

Any suggestions...I have an extended warranty that I bought from MFI does anyone know whether they have to replace the fridge freezer have continuously been getting shelves and front in freezer as they only last about a year...
