Roomy for a 30"August 25, 2017
I replaced an old top freezer that served me well for the 25 yrs I owned it. Bought this Frigidire FGTR2042tf (sight unseen) based on seeing the shorter 18 cu ft version in black stainless. It arrived today and here are my first impressions: It is well lit in both compartments, and there are separate freezer and refrigerator temp controls. I also like the taller height and the full width deli drawer. It seemed to come to temperature within 6 hours and froze my ice well. I am monitoring the temperature with a thermometer suspended in a glass of water for a few days and adjusting until I know the temperature is maintaining at approx 38° so far, so good. The produce bins seem quite small with minimal front to back depth due to the back half being slanted. The plastic construction as well as the drawer movement feels a bit flimsy and cheap, it would be better if it felt as sturdy and durable as the all clear door bins. I did notice as I shopped refrigerators that the manufacturers don't seem to think that smaller top freezer units deserve much in the line of quality components which bummed me. Not all of us with smaller spaces want an inexpensive entry level unit. I would be happy to pay a bit more to get really substantial durable components. I did not buy the icemaker as from what I read, they can be prone to failure and I don't mind making my own ice. One less thing to worry about repairing. That said, I am very glad I retained my old fridges ice bin, trays and rack set to use in the Frigidaire as there was not even an ice cube tray included. I found that weird. I also admit I have a bit of trepidition in the freezer utilizing a glass shelf, will see how that pans out over time with spills and feeezing. This machine is definitely noisy when running by which I mean it thumps, pops, snaps, cracks, hums, groans and rattles. I have never heard anything quite like it. My dogs even bark at it. If I had an open concept floor plan, it might be problematic. I wonder how visitors will react when they hear it. I really really wish these were made in America. They are made in Mexico. The other thing I wish I could change is the utility room gray side panels that remind me of an old painted basement floor. I would have much preferred black or at least a deeper graphite or charcoal gray color. That gray goes with nothing in my kitchen especially not my countertops whereas black goes with everything. I feel like I may need to pay someone to professionally spray paint them at some point. It's that ugly. Note: The smudgeproof stainless is deeper blue gray toned stainless that may not match your other stainless appliances. I have a 3 yr old range and that is a bit shinier silver stainless. Not a big problem with my kitchen layout, but noteworthy if you are trying to match your appliances. Overall its a nice looking refrigerator inside and a good option when your space width is limited to 30" as mine was. I hope to have many years of trouble free use after we figure out why ice is forming in drops down back wall inside freezer.
I would recommend this to a friend
