Renting - fridge/freezer has died...

    This is all accompanied by a terrible chemical smell [​IMG] Is that something I should be worried about - i.e. is it a danger to me and my children in any way?
    I have lost approx £30 worth of food - can I assume that I am entitled to a refund of the money for lost food? Are they obligated to replace the FF? I don't know how old it is, but I know I haven't done anything to contribute to its demise. I have lived in this house for 18 months.
    Thanks for advice - I am still particularly worried about the 'chemical' smell, which I can't wash from my hands [​IMG]

  3. Your landlord need to sort out the removal of the FF and a reasonable replacement, assuming the place was rented as furniture and this is included in fixtures and fittings. The removal is important as it costs c.£20 to have one taken away because the chemicals have to be disposed of properly. He doesn't have to refund the food - if you have a policy on the house this would cover it, although possibly not for £30, because of excess.
    As for the danger of chemicals not really, but have a look at this http://www.ehso.com/ehshome/chemicals_freon.htm
