After reading some of the reviews I was a little hesitant to buy this model, but once it was delivered and running I have no complaints. I read that a few people were complaining about how loud it was. Maybe they received faulty units because mine is hardly noticeable. The only time I think the noise would bother me is if I was sleeping in the kitchen in the middle of the night, but that will never happen.
I read other reviews about the drawers sticking. For me two of the three worked fine while only the top one was a little sticky. I put some olive oil on my finger and rubbed in on slide part of the drawer and it works perfect.
We had ours delivered and they actually showed up early. Only thing they wouldn't do was disconnect the old water line to the ice maker and connect the new one, but I didn't really care. I had bought a new braided stainless steel hose and installed it myself in about 2 minutes with one tool.
All in all the stainless steel front of the fridge looks great and the inside holds a lot of stuff.

Great Refrigerator so far!
Posted by: OldGuyFPS from: Dallas, TX on
I bought this refrigerator and was a little apprehensive since I could not physically inspect it beforehand. There were many reviews and the variation in customer experiences was vast. The price was good so I thought I would take the chance. I am glad I did.
This product has been great and I only have a few minor things that I wish were better. The first one is the exterior sides. They are a bit weak and just pushing on them to position the appliance can cause minor imperfections. The second thing was the door seals. They were not exactly perfect after shipping, but I was able to fix that with a hair dryer. Another thing is that the refrigerator may seem noisy if it is not balanced properly. This one had me scratching my head for a bit. I realized that after going shopping and filling it up, it seemed to be much louder. The doors seemed to be slightly out of alignment, which led me to do a quick bubble check. Sure enough, the weight of my wife's shopping spree had me on my knees turning those leveling bolts located in the bottom front, hidden beneath the plastic guard. Once I did that, all was quiet again and my wife was really happy with it.
To me, it is just a frig, but if she is happy, then I could not ask for more than that. I hope this review helps others.

Smudgeproof Stainless Steel Fridge!
Posted by: CaptainP from: on
Frigidaire seems to be the only brand with finger-proof stainless steel, and for a rental house with a family, this was a key criteria. Best stainless steel fridge for the price. I love the side-by-side set-up, and this new model has cool lights running down the inside front of the fridge and freezer. I chose this slightly upgraded model with glass shelves in the freezer. The fridge does make a brief (3 second), loud noise occasionally, which I think is the ice maker filling up. You need to buy a separate water line when making this purchase (SKU 9089657) $29.99!! I did not, and it was a complete hassle to have to go back to the store to make this purchase and arrange for the installer to come back. I asked the installers which brands are the most reliable/fewest repairs, and they said Frigidaire and LG are the most reliable. They said to avoid Samsung Refrigerators (that Samsung has not figured out how to successfully make refrigerators yet), and to avoid Whirlpool.

Worst appliance I have ever purchased
Posted by: Doglover from: on
DO NOT BUY THIS REFRIGERATOR! This is the least reliable and most poorly designed appliance we have ever owned. Frigidaire doesn't care, is a nightmare to deal with and won't stand behind their products. This is a Lemon! I have an extended warranty and Frigidaire won't pay for a rental while I wait 9 days to 3 weeks for the refrigerator to be fixed. The refrigerator stopped working completely after 15 months. The ice maker was replaced in the first year. The ice maker was serviced 4 times and still doesn't work correctly. The ice maker spills large quantities of ice all over the freezer. The repairman told me it was a design flaw and can't be corrected.

Quality fridge for the price
Posted by: JayBee from: Columbus, Ohio on
Purchased this fridge several weeks ago after looking at many different models and brands. Looks great. Makes some strange noises during the day.
The water from the door has had a strange plastic-like aftertaste. I'm hoping this goes away over time....been four weeks though since purchased though.
The ice comes blasting through the dispenser which means you need to use a large cup to capture the ice cubes or else plan on picking them up from the floor. More than likely, you cannot get only 2-3 ice cubes even with a quick press of the lever. In a matter of seconds, your cup is 90% full of ice.
Overall, I'm pleased that we upgraded our 1998 side-by-side for this model. No fridge is perfect, but this stainless steel model is magnetic, shows no fingerprints, and certainly keeps the milk cold. I would definitely recommend this fridge to others, but just accept that it's not perfect in all aspects. After all of the research I did, I can say I'm glad I purchased it.

Nice fridge - does not match anything else
Posted by: MrTWillz from: Chicago on
We originally purchased a frigidaire Gallery Series stainless steel range when our old one crapped out last October. We were so impressed with the looks and quality of it that we decided to upgrade all our other aging appliances with matching Gallery dishwasher, microwave and fridge.
We weren't able to look at the fridge in person before purchase as our local best buy doesn't stock them, but we did view them online and purchased from bestbuy.com
Once everything arrived, I was surprised to find that the fridge does not match the other 3 appliances at all. The microwave, dishwasher and range are all normal stainless steel. The fridge is some sort of blue-grey stainless steel that looks completely different.
We ended up returning the fridge. I did contact Frigidaire several times to see if they make a fridge that matches the rest of the Gallery line, but no one there seems to have any idea what's going on or have any interest in helping their customers.
I guess it's an ok fridge overall, but if you plan on matching it with any other appliances I would stay away from it. Hopefully Frigidaire will figure out that all 4 appliances in a set should probably be the same color. We are happy with the other 3 appliances and they seem well-made.

HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SVC
Posted by: LHNYC from: on
Overall, the refrigerator is decent. It's a nice design, cools and freezes well. However, since I purchased 8/2015 the refrigerator, I've had nothing but issues with it. In October or 2015, I had the LCD replaced because it stopped lighting up. After that, I had issues with the water pressure dispenser. As per Frigidaire, the water filter should last a min of 3 months on high usage, 6 months on normal. My family of 2 adult and two kids under 4 could not survive past 1.5 months on one filter.
I called Frigidaire and the sent their contractors to fix the problem on at 8 different occasions. The water pressure issue was not resolved and I ended up returning the refrigerator to Best Buy for a new manufacturer.
Frigidaire's customer service is despicable. They suggested that I bypass the water filter in the refrigerator and install a water filtration system in my home to get filtered water. And they contract out their repair service. Only one repair service was responsible and attentive to my issue in the Queens NY area, Home Service Appliance.
If your refrigerator works, then great, but if anything goes wrong and you have to deal with Frigidaire, good luck!

I have had this frig for about one month. So far it's been great. I have not had any problems with the ice cubes shooting across the floor like I read in some other reviews. I love the smudge proof texture. The only thing that I would agree with that some other reviews stated is the noise. It does make some strange noises. It's not the ice maker making the noise, it just makes random noises. But it works fine. The first bottom shelf that pulls out sticks a bit and you have to scrape it alone the sliders to get it to slide out. Hopefully, after awhile it will wear down to the point where it slides out smoothly. so far so good.

Disappointed right out the box ...
Posted by: RichB from: on
Needed a refrigerator to replace one that was leaking . Ordered this one on line and it was delivered promptly . That was the best part . Got home after the install and the drawers would not pull out smoothly . Apparently its a known issue with Frigidaire (per their customer service rep) . The refrigerator is also really loud and the ice /water dispenser shoots all over the place . Disappointing purchase. Took a month to get the exchange right and we selected a GE Profile . LOVE THE GE PROFILE!

We purchased a full set of Frigidaire Gallery appliances on 1/1/15. After multiple problems with each appliance, we returned the dishwasher and replaced it with a Bosch. Moving along, our refrigerator is currently at a temp of 70, and the freezer is at 75. This is the third time since it was delivered 8 months ago that we are more than two weeks trying to get service on it. Best Buy does not care even a little about this problem, even while we purchased their protection plan for it and Frigidaire would like us to quit our jobs to wait for service techs. They set us up with Unique Repair Services, who held us off one more week when their only tech that does freon...called in sick. The tech that just left my house isn't even the freon guy, so guess what??? Now we have to wait several more days for another tech to come, even when they were fully aware of what the problem is. I'm assuming we got the lemon, as I don't have time to read all of the reviews. Buy at your own risk, because Best Buy and Frigidaire do not care one bit about any problems you have, once your money has been paid!
