Nice looking fridge BUT
Good looking fridges. We purchased two and have them side-by-side with a connector kit.
- runs quite
- fridge and freezer drawers are smooth.
- lighting in the fridge is great
- can’t level fridges correctly as they lean back too much
- fridge shelves appear flimsy. Put a casserole dish and looks like it will cave in. Bend is pronounced.

Nice clean design
Very happy with workings & look of fridge - efficient, quiet & stylish. Not 5stars as we had to separately change the opening side to LH hinge. It only comes in RH hinge version

Handles have snapped off 3 times so decided not to replace handles now.the fridge is constantly beeping now. something to do with temperature . It beeps 2 am in morning. This fridge should not be on the market. Total waste of money.

I have had lots of problems
Its working now but the thermostat was replaced 3 times and now the door handles have broken. Electrolux were kind and replaced the handles but I have no idea how to fix to the door without a service call. The Fridge has not been lucky for me and now its a discontinued model despite being top of the range for its size at the time. If anyone can teach me how to put the handles on it would be great.

Bought this in August 2017, worked fine for 2 years. But after a month outside the warranty period just died, called the Electrolux repair service which they replaced the main electric board, then after 1 month died again. Then called the service man again who poured hot water in the ice creation in the freezer section.
Then after 1 month died again. Then again poured hot water.
Then after 2 months died again. Called another service guy who told that the board needs to be replaced.
So called the earlier Electrolux service they told they’ll need to start the service process again.
Just horrible, I’ll never get another Electrolux or its subsidiary company products.

I absolutely love our fridge
We have had our 450L bottom mount Electrolux Left opening black fridge for exactly one year now. We couldn't be happier. Despite taking up smaller space than my old top mount it has far more interior room. I love having a large crisper drawer which keeps the vegetables at an ideal temperature, which makes them last longer. As vegetarians we need to be able to have a good supply of veggies. We're mad cheese lovers and the dedicated cheese drawer was what made me decide finally on this fridge. I also love the wine rack on which we store wine, mil...k in bottles, mineral water and soft drinks. There's enough room under the rack for spare eggs, (there's also an egg tray) etc. The freezer holds a good amount of food, also more than my old one. I appreciate the top, smaller drawer, which is perfect for my chiller blocks, pizzas, and small packs of left over frozen items. The fridge is quiet, while running you can hear a low humm, however if there is any kind of ambient noise, you can't hear a thing. This fridge beeps if the door is left open too long, which is great with a husband who likes to make a salad sandwich with the door open. It also has a holiday mode to reduce electricity consumption when we're on holidays. The black finish is easy to care for, just a wipe with a damp chamois and I don't find that finger prints are all that noticeable, despite what I've read in other reviews. All in all, I couldn't recommend this refrigerator more highly.
Awesome Product & Repair Service
Awesome Repair & Maintenance service.
Repairmain on time, and porfessional
fast, and accurate, polite
A rare fault that was replaced rapidly with no fuss and with minimal fuss and time.
Also Serviceman was able to give handy tips on how to use the Fridge better & save money on power usage

Sleek and Practical
Bought the fridge eight months ago and we couldn't be happier! Love its overall size coz it doesn't look too big in our townhome kitchen. But with its compact size it has spacious and conveniently laid out compartments. Also love its long straight handle and sleek edges.

Love this fridge
Replaced my westinghouse fridge with the Electrolux bottom mount and absolutely love this fridge. Consistent temperature the shelves in the door placed perfectly and slide, the door handle is great. Everything about this Fridge is fantastic.

Fantastic Electrolux Bottom Mount Fridge
Having downsized had to purchase a new fridge. Having previously owned the larger Electrolux Bottom Mount fridge & have been extremely happy with it for 8 years, unfortunately would not fit the space in my new home. I decided again on the Electrolux as interior well thought out & one of the cheapest fridges to run.
A very good fridge, very happy with it.
Bought from Harvey Norman with a cashback offer.
1. It has good solid drawers with proper sliders, so the drawers slide in and out smoothly and easily, unlike all the other fridges in the same price range that I looked at.
2. The fridge door shelves are lined with silicone mats on the bottom, so things don’t move around when opening and shutting the fridge door. They also make it very easy to clean.
3. The freezer has three pull out drawers, again with proper sliders, much better than just an open space like in some fridges.
4. Food lasts a long time in this fridge.
4. It uses very little electricity.
5. The lighting in the fridge is excellent....

Nice design but very loud
I really like the design of the fridge, nice lighting excellent cooling, nice sliding fridge drawers and chiller and a good amount of space. Unfortunately, it is extremely loud when the compressor is on which is most of the time. The sound is a combination of the typical compressor growl with a very distracting high pitched whine.
It is winter here (Melbourne) and the manual says that the compressor will run more often in warmer temperatures so I can only imagine how loud it will be in summer. My advice would be to stay away from this model unless your kitchen is in a soundproof room....

Great looking high end fridge.
One of the fridges with excellent handles that will not break off. The door shelves are great if you have small children haha. The door shelves seem to be stuck now that we've put them in. We'll probably break the tiny white plastic retainers if we try to remove them. How will we remove them to clean them? Salespeople said the door shelves are not meant to be removed. On the other hand the freezer drawers come out very easy, too easy! Temperature regulation is sensational. I think you could use it in a professional kitchen. The door finish is awesome. No fingerprints. No reflection. Excellent.

Great having a freezer at the bottom with three draws. Easy access to all shelves in the freezer and the fridge Can be slightly noisy when motor kicks in but this doesn’t last for long and we are now used to it. Would certainly purchase another Electrolux product and recommend to others.
Great for family of 3 to 4
I like the eco cooling feature. The fridge is easily pull to open and close. The product have an alert if you forgot to close the fridge. However, the ice twist tray is very small and sometime hard the turn it back after twist all the ice off, guess the plastic tray or the spring is not that good in quality. Bought it from Harvey Norman when they have cashback promo. Overall it’s good product
Questions & Answers
Why are public questions to Electrolux seemingly being sent to product reviewers to answer? Why do you only have 2 year warranty on your fridges when Australian consumer Law has reasonable expected product life regulations? Most people expect 10 to 15 trouble free years out of a fridge. My fridge failed within the warranty period, but by the time i got back to the store it was outside warranty period and was told as it is now out of warranty we can't help.
Was happy to answer a fellow consumer’s question. Previously had a larger bottom freezer Electrolux fridge which I loved & was trouble free for more than 10 years. Had to move & had to buy smaller fridge. As I had been more than happy with my previous Electrolux bottom mount fridge, decided to buy the same brand. My old fridge I gave to a family member as a second fridge. It is still working well & must be getting up to near 15 years old. Hope this answers your question.
Sorry to hear bout problem with your fridge.
Defrost element has now failed a second time. Food in fridge spoiled a second time. Under four years old. Not happy.
Why has this fridge been replaced
Hi Bill, not sure what your question is asking. I did have an Electrolux 519 litre fridge previously which I gave away to my step-daughter to use. I have downsized (due to the fact I was widowed) & am now living in a Retirement Village. My previous fridge (which I was really happy with) did not fit the opening. It has meant I have had to purchase the smaller Electrolux fridge which I am really happy with & the inside layout is more than enough for myself & the dog.
I hope this answers your question.
Do you need a power surge protection for this fridge ???
I’m not sure what you mean. I live in an urban area and the fridge works using grid supplied power. I cannot speak for off the grid power. This is a question best directed to the manufacturer.
I live in a building right in the city but every one said you need a power surge protector in case of a power spike because that might blow up the fridge logic board so should I get one or not ?
