Great solid fridge

Love my new fridge with the convenience of a plumbed water and ice dispenser which was also easy to install. Quiet too, I live in a small apartment and finding a fridge that doesn’t make noise was a huge draw card for me. Other brands I was looking into seem to have the same review of - ‘great fridge but noisy’. It’s also really sturdy and solidly made. Show details

Design fault in this refrigerator

We bought this product 2 years ago. It performed well until a week ago when the refrigerator section stopped working. A technician found that the fan in the bottom of the unit had frozen and this stopped the cycle of air. It required turning off the unit to allow the ice to thaw meaning food would spoil. After searching the internet we found this to be a common problem with this refrigerator. Be aware of this design problem before you buy. Show details

Great fridge/freezer in every way (except one)

The fridge looks great, is good value for money and for the energy efficiency. It feels well made, with a solid sounding door and drawers that don't get stuck or feel like they're going to snap like other fridges I've owned. The taste guard does a noticeably good job of avoiding "fridge taste" on open items in the fridge. It maintains a steady temperature too. And the temperature thus far has remained even - no freezing of items at the back to keep everything else cool. Worth the money.

At night, it sounds like the shadow creatures from Ghost. Show details

Good looking ;5 star energy rating!

Left hand to suit kitchen layout.Handles a little difficult to fit,but with patience and not forcing Allen key seems to be quite a good fit.Ice cube tray small,but appears to be a standard across all similar fridges.Overall very happy Show details

I got the lemons

The first fridge that arrived had a control panel that only worked after I switched the fridge off at the power point. After a couple of days the fridge stopped working although the freezer kept humming along nicely. I got a replacement. When I discovered the control panel didn't work on that one either, I sent it back. It's a pity. I really liked the layout and energy efficiency of this model. Lots of people rave about it online. I obviously got the lemons! Show details

Electrolux cant "Handle it", 4th handle replacement in less than 2 years

The handles of the fridge are held in place by an extremely small screw, since purchasing the fridge for over $2K we have had to have 4 handle changes on the fridge handles. The technician has come out 3 times and checked everything and even played around with the suction parts but no luck. The Fridge is now just out of warranty, I'm trying to get a hold of Electrolux customer service team but have been hold for over an hour.
Have researched online and it seems it is a reoccurring issue with most of these fridges and this specific handle.
With all the online examples plus my experience will be contacting ACCC next, not good enough, you cannot sell a product that is below par and follow it up with poor customer service.

Terrible fridge

We bought the fridge approx 2 years ago from Harvey Norman. The fridge handle pulled off after three months. Apart from being noisy (which we can handle) first the fridge, then freezer, stopped working about 2 months ago. Repair guy came out twice, fixed the fridge and then again to fix the freezer. Now the fridge has stopped working again after 2 weeks!!!! I am so frustrated and disappointed with this fridge, I just really regret spending so much money on something that has proved to be such a fail. The one star is pretty much because it looks ok.  Show details

Electrolux refrigerator

We bought a new Electrolux EBE5307BC-R fridge this week from Harvey Norman. We were required to fit the two door handles ourselves and instructions are included together with an allen key. The allen key is so soft and flexible, and the allen screws so stiff that it was extremely difficult to tighten the door handles to the fridge, resulting in the thread of the screw being stripped, meaning that the door handle will never be properly tight to the door. Very disappointed with both HN and Electrolux. I recommend that anybody buying an Electrolux fridge insists beforehand that the fridge is fully installed by the vendor.

I have a EBE5307SB Electrolux bottom mount fridge. Suddenly, middle freezer draw is falling off the brackets/rails almost like draw with brackets fitted to it is now too narrow to fit the draw rails opening that are fixed to the freezer, yet nothing is broken. I'm bit puzzled what might be the issue. Thanks in advance! Mike.

Hi my bottom freezer draw front panel flips up it doesn’t seem to click into place with the 3 slots at the base of the draw. My items keep falling out as soon as I post the freezer draw. Tape doesn’t stick because it’s too cold. Any ideas?

I am looking at buying this model. How far does the door have to open to enable drawers to open. My opening has a wall on each side so can only open straight out (90 degrees).

Hi. It opens to 90deg. Our fridge area is similar.

  • This Electrolux fridge was spacious and provided a decent amount of space that was enough to accommodate to a whole time.
