Great solid fridge

published

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.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $1,990.

Design fault in this refrigerator.

published

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.

Great fridge/freezer in every way (except one)...

published

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.

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $1,700.

I got the lemons

published

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!

Unreliable Rubbish

published

Fridge is less than 3 years old. Worked fine until just out of warranty and has failed on and off ever since. Constant problems. Tried to get Electrolux to help out as good will because a $3.5k fridge should be reasonably expected to last more than 2-3 years without major failures. They wouldn't have a bar of it because it was just out of warranty and wanted me to book their technician to come out and inspect (at an exorbitant call out fee). Would never buy another Electrolux again.

Purchased in for $3,500.

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

published

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.

Purchased in at e&s for $2,000.

Terrible fridge

published

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.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $1,800.

Electrolux refrigerator

published

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.

Don’t know about pocket handles. But I can tell you it fits 2ltr bottle easily in the bottom of fridge door. For 3ltr bottles it would depend on the shape.
