Many people think that fridge shelves are an almost universal spare part and that, so long as you get the correct size that they will fit your
fridge or fridge freezer. Sadly, this is most often not the case at all.
Like most spare parts for fridges and fridge freezers, the shelves used in a fridge are very often completely unique to the model of the fridge and we get little, if any, size information as they are ordered by model number then a part number, usually no sizing information is available. It is therefore absolutely vital, to get the correct fridge shelf, that you order a replacement shelf using the model number of your fridge or fridge freezer or you will almost certainly get the wrong spare part.
Fridge Shelf Fitting
There are various ways that the fridge shelves are fitted but most will simply slot into the inner plastic moulding of the fridge wall in some way.
With a glass shelf in a fridge, this is often accomplished using plastic trims, usually all the way around the glass itself and it is very often these plastic trims that break up and cause the shelf to no longer fit in the fridge. On occasion, these plastic trims are available as a separate item and can be replaced without the need to replace the whole fridge shelf but that is not as common as manufacturers supplying the fridge shelf as a complete, bonded, shelf.
Plastic fridge shelves are obviously weaker and more susceptible to damage, especially from placing too much weight on them. Heavy items such as fridge packs of soft drinks, wine boxes and so on will cause these sort of fridge shelves to become stressed and break.
Almost all fridge shelves are however very easy to take out for cleaning and are therefore very easy to replace.
Find Your Fridge Model Number
You can see an example of a fridge or fridge freezer rating plate in the image below.
You will almost invariably find the model number of a fridge or fridge freezer on the left-hand wall of the fridge by way of the rating plate. Getting the correct model and sometimes the serial or service number can be vital in getting the correct shelf you need.

The good news is that all too often parts are also in line with the budget pricing and can be very keenly priced, cheap even.
As of 2018 we have started to supply Hisense spare parts as we've seen a large amount of growth in the brand here in the UK and, with the purchase of Gorenje Hisense has become a more important player in the EU.

What we need to find Hisense parts is primarily the model number from the rating plate, it is vital to have this and to have it correct. If you do not have that we won't be able to find parts and, get it wrong and any parts may well also be incorrect so, it really is vitally important.
Do not (as usual) trust user handbooks, online searches for something that looks like you have or whatever, the only place you can reliably get the model number information is from the rating plate. More information about this can be found in this article

We are going to get any part/s your order to you as fast as we possibly can.
We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and an explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.
Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability.
Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.
What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.
The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:
1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.
1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.
* to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.
Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.
If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.
Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.
Large (oversized/overweight) items (panels, dishracks, cooktops, tubs, drums, etc.) may incur additional shipping fees, especially when off the mainland UK.
Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.
Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.
Please do understand that manufacturers can change specifications, pricing and delivery times without notice and we do try to take account of this as best we can but we cannot absolutely guarantee these things when outside of our control.
Order Transit Times
If the item you have ordered is in stock and the order is placed before 3.00pm Monday to Friday then we will endeavour to dispatch the order on the same day. Subsequent delivery times are usually between 1-3 working days dependant on the service you have chosen, the time your order is placed and stock availability.
If an item is required for a guaranteed next day delivery please contact us in advance to check that this is possible
Please note that the times given can be subject to availability, however, more than 98% of all orders are delivered on or faster than the estimated times.
Economy courier Service
Orders placed before 3pm on working days will normally dispatch within 24 hours depending on stock availability.
Most orders are expected to reach UK postcodes in 1-4 business days from dispatch using this service.
Your order will receive priority handling, packing and be normally be delivered the next working day after dispatch using DPD or Royal Mail Special Delivery for smaller items where with DPD you also have the ability to change the delivery address with DPD (may cause delay), times and so on, services that are not available on other carrier options.
This option does get the items to you as fast as we can possibly make that happen within the confines of where the stock is held etc.
Please note that on large or bulky items this may be the only option available due to restrictions on other services on both sizes and weights.
Standard Royal Mail Service
Orders placed before 3pm on working days will normally dispatch within 24 hours depending on stock availability.
Most orders are expected to reach UK postcodes in 1-15 business days from dispatch.
* Royal Mail postal service - This is not a guaranteed next day service, Royal Mail aim to deliver 85% of 1st Class mail items the next working day after posting but this can take longer. Economy services are slower than this and can take several working days to arrive.
Whilst we have tried our best to cover the most common questions here, there are some product and location specific exceptions that may also result in additional charges. If this is the case then a member of our sales team will contact you to discuss the various options before the item is dispatched.
Should you have any delivery queries, please contact a member of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
