Love it


I love this refrigerator because it cools very well and has a lot of space, and the price is good, the design is nice and the door opens and closes easily

Purchased in November 2019 at Kmart for $1,200.00.

Awesome Skux As


This fridge is awesome, a couple of years later its still going strong. Not fancy prancy apart from the buzzer letting you know that you left the door open. Apart from that I've had no problems with it whatsoever. Really happy. I would've gotten the left side freezer just to complete the set, buts its discontinued.

Wouldn't go past it.


I am just about to replace mine with the same one. It is just under 10 years old and it has been fabulous as has the freezer.I love the way it's compact, fits into my area and just looks great. Very easy to clean and reasonably quiet. The only time it hasn't performed is last week when it burnt out.

Never touch Fisher & Paykel again


Needs repairing for the 3rd time - same problem. Already cost over $1,000 in repairs. I'm not going to bother this time - going to buy a new fridge but definitely not a Fisher & Paykel - even though it's twin the freezer has been and still is good I'm cutting my losses!

Inferior Product


The evaporator tray is totally inadequate during warm weather with water dripping on the floor.
The plastic "thingy" is totally el cheapo design. I will never buy another F&P product. Possibly many others have the same opinion and therefore F&P had some severe financial hiccups not so long a

never failed


I've had this fridge for a few years and I've never once had a problem. I find with these review sites people only leave reviews if they have bad experiences. Don't be turned off by the unlucky few, this is a good, reliable and efficient fridge!

Never Again


Complete loss of gas at 4 years of age. Uneconomic to repair so off to the tip it goes.
This is the second one of these we've owned, as it's an unusual size to fit out kitchen,and both failed at similar age. Now altering joinery so can buy a different brand. Will never touch F&P again.
Terrible customer service also.

A good source of water damage


Normally an ok fridge but the horrible quality of the evaporator tray brings it undone. Had the fridge for about a year and a half and it developed a leak. After some poking around found the water dropping from the front of the catchment tray that is suppose to allow the water to heat and evaporate out. As it turns out cheap plastic tray developed a crack in the tray right near where it is mounted allowing the tray to lean forward so the water just leaks out. Would not be a major issue except it has caused water damage to the surrounding kitchen cupboards it sits next to.

Must of got a dud!


We had to purchase this fridge as it was the only fridge short enough to fit under low hanging cabinets in kitchen. Within a couple of months the interior side of the cabinet started cracking, door seals never remain attached and have to constantly push and realine them back into the door, vegetable draw plastic thingy under the bottom shelf snapped tab off and doesn't stay up properly.
Still under warranty and will be seeking repair.
Low hight for capacity, easy to clean and has very good energy rating.
Poor build quality.

Easy to clean adjustable glass shelves are great.Plenty of room for just about any size dish.Keeps food nice and cold and never gets a smell.The door ajar alarm is handy to have.
Large family size with adjustable height shelves
Sometimes we find water leaking from the back reservor.Sometimes makes wiered noises.

Reliable fast cooling fridge with plenty of space. Low noise, door alarm is great to know when the kids are browsing. Have the pigeon pair freezer too. It also is great.
Died just after warranty ran out but Fisher & Paykel still happily agreed to replace. heaps of room and fast cool down. Not to noisy. Bottles stay upright on flat glass shelves.
Can't put hot/warm things on glass shelves. If door self closes, have to wait to re-open due to suction.

I have F & P vertical freezer Model N388 Serial No MLF 296892R Product 12018 Series D.
It is leaking water ( which freezes) on the right side of the unit which leaks out and door then does not close, This has happened twice in 3 months. We have had the unit for several years. Is it past its use-by date or should we look to have it repaired? Many thanks for your assistance. :)

I have a F & P upright fridge model e373 it is leaking water into the bottom of the fridge, every day. I have been told that it might be a blocked drain. how do I get to the internal drain, how do the panels come off?

Hi Martin, They should just pop out - there is a space for your fingers in the centre between the two panels - from memory, these are attached by velcro. Water leaking into the bottom of the fridge was the beginning of the problem with my fridge - there was a problem with the thermostat, so I had it fixed and within three months ....leaking water again and then it became very noisy as a result of ice building up, that's when it was taken away for 2 weeks for investigation and repair - very expensive exercise only to have to go through the whole process again. The fridge was clearly a lemon! Hopefully your fridge isn't and it is only a blocked drain. I wish you all the best with it.
