About the company and products
Officially, the country-manufacturer of "Candy" technology is Italy - the head office of the company is located in the picturesque city of Brugherio. But factories for manufacturing products are scattered throughout the world. For 100% confidence in the European origin of technology, look at the markings.
Today, 5 million units of household appliances are produced per year. The range includes functional washing machines and dishwashers Candy, kitchen tiles, ovens and refrigerators.
The company sells its products in tens of thousands of outlets located in more than a hundred countries. The lion's share of the "Kandy" production comes off the assembly line for export.
Model line of Candy refrigerators
Candy appliances are designed to improve the quality of life. To this end, the company's engineers create diverse models to satisfy the demands of even the most demanding user. By type of installation there are stationary (detached) and built-in refrigerators. Single-chamber, two-chamber, multi-chamber versions - there are models for every taste. And, the buyer can choose a single-door body, and a variant with two doors or give preference to a chic Side-by-Side model, which opens like a cabinet.
In the production of all the above types of refrigeration equipment, advanced technologies are used and innovations are introduced. They stand guard over the freshness of even the most "capricious" products.
Pros of assembly
In the refrigeration technology "Kandy" first of all they are attracted by their classical forms. The colors are chosen in the most pleasant and warm colors to harmonize with any interior solutions. Modern materials with cushioning properties increase the durability of the structure, provide low vibration technology and excellent noise insulation.
Regardless of the country of production, the refrigeration equipment is assembled exclusively from Italian parts. The entire process is accompanied by quality control at each stage of the assembly. Users appreciate this positively, referring to the technique of Candy as a reliable and durable. It is practically proved that the equipment from "Kandy" for years does not need repairs.
Experts are also positive, saying that for the trouble-free operation of refrigerators, no special maintenance is required. It is enough only to comply with the instructions in the operating instructions andrules for using a refrigerator.
All models of "Kandy" are made without the use of harmful materials and substances. Refrigerant is gas - freon brand R600a.
Important! Freon R600a is safe for humans and the environment. It is non-toxic, does not enhance the greenhouse effect and does not destroy the ozone layer of the atmosphere.
An important contribution to popularity is the enviable capacity of the cameras, both of which are both basic and freezing. Shelves, containers, boxes have many modifications and sizes. Depending on the purposes of use and location, the accessories can be metal (lattice), plastic or glass.
Fact! Like all world and domestic leaders, for manufacturing glass shelves, Candy uses tempered glass. Such sturdy shelves are capable of withstanding low temperatures and high loads.
Also, users note the convenience of the Multibox system, located on the door, which includes egg trays, oil cans and other appliances.
BioSafe is a branch in which the Biocold Futura system is installed. Such a system is a "paradise" for products. In branches with this system, drinks and food are stored many times longer without losing freshness and taste. Leaving in BioSafe meat, cheeses and even just kneaded dough, you can not worry about the freshness of these products for a long time and take out portions as needed.
Turbo Cold - this system operates on the principle of constant supply of cooled air flows. Functionality is provided by the fan built in the top of the main compartment. The fan blades are driven by a compressor. The cold air flows freely circulate through the chamber, entering all its parts and sections. This restores the temperature balance after the next door opening and increases the effect of low temperature on the products stored on the shelves.
Dual Cold - no less useful invention, installed in two-chamber models. This technology creates a dual cooling circuit between the freezer and the refrigerating chamber, distributing the air between them. The system is included in the work, if necessary. In addition, thanks to Dual Cold, you can control the temperature conditions in each compartment separately.
Depending on the model and its pricing policy, the defrost system can be manual, semi-automatic and automatic. Many models are equipped with No Frost technology, virtually freeing users from hassle with defrosting.

I use 3 months - for this time there was not a single problem. It was pleasantly surprising that in the freezer the maximum minus can reach 30 degrees - the real power, though at the same time in the other camera only +3. If you score the shelves under the strings, it takes the temperature slowly. It works quietly, and given the price, what can be a claim.
My parents are frantic without a refrigerator. Immediately used the function of rearrangement of the door, because it was decided to put it not like the people, in their own way. Mom and Dad - wild designers, as you do not come to them, something changes. They boasted that the refrigerator is easy to move, because on wheels, although I did not attach any importance to the purchase, it turned out that I guessed and pleased. They do not complain about the noise (maybe they sleep soundly). The price is just a song.

I've been looking for a roomy and functional refrigerator for a long time, in which there would not have been any unpleasant odors. Before that, I had Atlant, and although I cleaned it every week, it smelled terrible, so I sold it. This model was bought already on the recommendation of friends, we came, looked, sniffed - we liked it. In the rest, too, everything suits - and how the shelves are made, and the freezer from below is very comfortable, well, the price is 5-10 times lower than for the technique of cool brands.
I am satisfied with everything. Of course, there is not enough ice generator, which I was spoiled by its predecessor, but has already adapted to freeze ice in single-use packages. Vegetables and fruits are stored for a very long time - I am a fan of buying food in advance and do not run afterwards for shopping for one carrot. The husband took his soul away, having hung up his magnets from all over the world - on the door there is where to go for a walk.

Faults in Candy Refrigerators
Since the models considered by us do not assume the presence of a digital display, there are no error codes that could be decoded in the instruction. Therefore, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the most likely breakdowns of the Kandy refrigerators in the chart below to know how to act in a critical situation.
|Breaking||Signs and Removal|
|The starting protective relay failed||The appliance does not freeze. The motor starts for a couple of seconds and turns off, clicks from the rear wall are audible. The problem is eliminated by replacing the relay.|
|Broken thermostat||As manifested:
It is necessary to replace the faulty device (thermostat).
A common problem with the flashing of the red lamp (or the control panel), the temperature rise, the formation of snow or ice on the walls, the prolonged operation of the compressor.
It is necessary to call a specialist to eliminate leakage and fill the system with freon.
|Sensor malfunction||Problems with the temperature: too low or, conversely, higher than the preset temperature. The failure is removed by replacing the sensor with a new one.|
|Compressor failed||The motor starts and turns off, the relay clicks, and the cooling is completely absent (in the model with one compressor). The compressor can not be repaired, therefore its complete replacement is required.|
|Breakage of the control module||
This problem is typical for models equipped with electronic control. When the board burns out or fails, the device does not function correctly - the buttons may not respond on pressing, all the lights flash, a constant signal emits, the temperature inside is too high, etc.
A firmware or a complete replacement of the electronic board is required to solve the problem. It is not recommended to undertake this work independently, because with a full breakage of the board due to unsuccessful repairs, buying a new one can cost half the cost of the entire refrigerator.
The result. You have familiarized yourself with the advantages and model range of Candy refrigeration technology. Despite the positive feedback and good technical characteristics, the devices can fail. For this, we gave the example of the most common problems. But then we will say that with proper care and observance of the rules of operation, any refrigerator, even a Chinese assembly, can serve its time allotted to it. Good choice!
