Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Not satisfactory

Submitted by Varcher - 10/22/2020

I bought this refrigerator last month 2nd Sept, 2020 from Multi Discount Furniture and Appliance in Nassau Bahamas and was disappointed with its performance. It kept making icicles in the freezer door and then defrosting and leaving water everywhere. The store sent a service man to check it out only to discover that the freezer control area was completely frozen over. When it defrosted it was found that the control was missing altogether with no way to adjust it. He had to replace the whole back panel with the proper control under waranty however as this is how it came from the factory I feel that you should be aware of the problem as I have always considered Frigidare to be a reliable brand. I am hoping that the installation of the freezer control will solve the problem but I am very upset with having to put up with this problem on my new purchase and really feel they should have changed my fridge for another.

Huge Disappointment!

Submitted by D1773 - 10/20/2020

Frigidaire appliances have been my choice for over 40 years. Unfortunately, this model has been a lemon. Our original purchase was in 2019. After numerous service calls with no fix, Frigidaire authorized a replacement of the same model in October 2020. This is what the replacement one looked like less than 24 hours after delivery. We had a repair service call today, 2 weeks after delivery & were told that is a common problem with top freezers. So disappointed! Apparently this model is not reliable. I would definitely not recommend to anyone.

Not Happy With This Refrigerator Freezer

Submitted by Susan Freedman - 10/19/2020

I bought this model in early May 2020 (during the lockdown when my old refrigerator broke) and discovered a lot of frost on the interior ceiling of the freezer and the interior of the door, which are supposed to be frost-free. The appliance also made strange noises. A replacement was delivered to me a few weeks ago. This replacement also makes frost, but I will have to live with this situation. Also, the wire shelf in the freezer is installed on the lower of the two available rungs. I have asked the distributor, Gerhards Appliance of Ardmore, PA, to have someone come to my home to raise it. (This company frequently delivers appliances to people in my 541 unit condo building.) The distributor had someone successfully raise the shelf on the original freezer, but the people whom I'm dealing with in the distributor's office now refuse to send someone and ignore my pleas. I had asked the maintenance department of my condo to adjust it, but the man who tried could not do it. So, I am stuck with a freezer in which it is hard to place food items under the shelf and the ones above the shelf are piled on top of each other, which necessitates removing each one every time that I want to use an item on the bottom of the pile or in the middle of it. I am planning to renovate my entire condo including my kitchen and two bathrooms. But I will not buy any products that are manufactured by your company or distributed by Gerhards. I'm also not happy with the way in which this refrigerator/freezer is designed. Too many of the operating parts of this appliance are placed in areas where food needs to be stored. One example is the fruit and vegetable bins in which only 2/3 of the bin is available for food.

Good garage refrigerator

Submitted by Jaybird2323 - 10/11/2020

I bought this a month ago and it's working great so far. It's a pretty plain refrigerator, no extra items on it. Good for a garage or a cabin. There is a heater option on this refrigerator , so it can work in a garage during freezing temperatures.

Our Best Refrigerator Ever

Submitted by heapson - 10/10/2020

Love how gallons of milk fit in door. Leaves tons of room on shelves. Reversed handles and hinges effortlessly. Quietest refrigerator we have ever owned. Close your eyes and you won't know it is there. Very handsome appearance. Maintains excellent and even temperature. Couldn't ask for more!

Top shelf freezes

Submitted by Debbiede - 9/29/2020

Fridgedaire has been out here 5 times because the top shelf freezes and has not fixed it. They say it™€™s designed that the freezer blows on the top shelf. They told me to fix it I™€™d have to remove the top shelf which is not an acceptable option for me. Now they say I™€™m not compliant. I™€™d go with a different company to buy from. Every time I ask for a supervisor I get hung up on. I paid for extended warranty. Terrible service.

After 3 months, works well but...

Submitted by Jsand347 - 9/24/2020

I gave this 3 stars because-1. I found the screws to the refrigerator door handle coming loose. Has to retighten. 2. The refrigerator door is EASILY capable of being over weighted, thus causing the door to sag and scrape against the bottom of the fridge. That door has plenty of space, but don™€™t be fooled. If you fill it to capacity, even with moderately heavy items, the door will sag. There should at least be a clear warning on the door to prevent customers from doing this.

Freezer problems

Submitted by deborahLo - 9/20/2020

We have only had the unit for three days and already problems with the freezer. Ice building up in the freezer and frost forming on items. The unit is loud! Especially when you open the freezer! The appliance appearance is very nice and well designed but performance is questionable.I am calling the appliance store tomorrow and if they will take it back I will gladly pay a restocking fee!

Freezer has frosting issues and customer service is impossible to reach and will not contact me

Submitted by timarruda - 9/14/2020

I would give ZERO stars if possible, based on the customer service experience I have been going through. We have had issues with this unit frosting up since day 1. About 4 months ago started calling in for service. Have had 4 visits, all to no avail. Two other visits were 'scheduled' but no one showed up the first time, and the next time, that company had no record of Frigidaire making the appointment. We finally were approved for unit replacement, but was sent a rebate form good for the same unit. Why the heck would we buy the same unit? We are willing to spend more money for a more expensive unit, just want a credit for the old one, to go towards the new one. In trying to resolve this, I have called over 30 times today, eventually being told by a computer they are too busy and then get disconnected. Is this any way to run your customer service department????

There has been a shortest of refrigerators because of covid. This was a panic buy, my refrigerator went south on a Friday night.

Submitted by tammy71 - 9/9/2020

Refrigerator installed on July 14, 2020. It promptly started growing icicles in the freezer. The diagonal seal in the upper RIGHT corner has popped out. The first repairman said he'd have to order the part. Two weeks later the second repairman applied silicone(?) sealant around the top and LEFT side of the freezer compartment. Diagonal seal on the right corner worse than ever. Soft seal around the door now so mashed it may have to be replaced. Will call store AGAIN today. Oh, and yesterday the light bulb in the lower compartment burned out. This after 6 weeks.

I want a fridge!

Submitted by Adam44 - 8/11/2020

Our model broke down three weeks into us using. It took 10 days for a service rep to visit and another week for a part to arrive. Then, once that part (a relay switch) was installed, the repairman realized that the compressor was stalled. I know that things happen, but this is little consolation when I have thrown away good food and been forced to live without fridge for nearly a month.

I would not recommend I have been having problems with it since I brought it. The freezer keeps frosting up with ice and defrosting. I had a service person come out to fix it and it is still doing the same thing. I also placed another call for service and they never showed up and this is the second time no show. Lesson learned!
