    Who's it made by, where did you buy it from, and how far out of warranty is it??

    Some manufacturuer's/Retailer's will help you out if its only a couple of days out of warranty.

    Nah, not on household insurance - not that I've ever seen anyway. As you say the contents are covered if it breaks down/power cut but not the applicance itself.

    How much out of the year warranty is it? If it's only just run out I'd get onto the manufacturers and explain, they may very will still repair it out of good will.

    Edit: Ya beat me Ben!! lol

    just a quicky that may work for you , i work with touring caravans and occasionally an air lock develops in the cooling unit of a fridge , what we do is remove the fridge and turn it upside down for a few minutes then back the right way ,it may work albeit caravan fridges work in a slightly different way

    Personally I believe that in the majority of cases it is not worth claiming on your house insurance for the food lost.

    Unless you have a vast amount ot frozen food, by the time that you take into account the policy excess and (if applicable) the loss of your No Claims Bonus (which could suffer for 2 years) it just wouldnt be a viable thing to do.
