Great interior layout - absolutely awful constant high-pitched noise!
This is the third Fisher & Paykel fridge with the exact same interior layout (with bottom freezer) that we have had in 14 years. There was absolutely nothing at all wrong with the first 2 fridges of the same model that we had, we just decided to pass them on to younger family members each time we renovated different houses/kitchens; we loved them. But this new model (purchased late 2019) has a constant high pitched noise that is inescapable. We have an open plan kitchen/living area (like most people these days) and, even though the television i...s 10 metres away from the fridge, the constant high pitched noise interrupts TV viewing, music listening, family life etc and is extremely grating. I gather it is something to do with new (more eco friendly?) compressor technology but it is horrendous. Can anyone offer any solutions? Fisher & Paykel? Pleeeease? I sooooo regret getting rid of our previous Fisher & Paykel fridge (purchased in 2012). :(

A really great fridge/freezer
Love this product. I always buy F&P because I find them very reliable appliances. Mistakenly I bought the left door but nevermind, we're used to it now and it doesn't take away from an excellent product. Temperatures even and very quiet working motor. Easy to clean with the glass shelves, something I missed with my old fridge. Bottom freezer is a boon; afterall, we don't go into the freezer as often as we go into the fridge. Very spacious, something that surprised me when it arrived, as I'd only viewed this model online before purchase. ...Happy to have decided on white as opposed to ss because it's easy to clean and looks nice. The only negative I have is the doors don't always swing fully shut but the beeping solves that, ensuing we're aware of it.

Know better, choose better.
Great design keeps even temperatures.
Very happy with the look of it as well.
I have a back problem so the bottom freezer is an excellent design for easy use for me.

The fridge works well, it can be able to maintain a cosistent and reliable temperature. The door is a bit difficult to open but that shows it’s safe to use and will not lost energy. I like how there’s a drawer for putting veggies so that you won’t forget to eat them!

Excellent fridge. SO MUCH SPACE!!
This fridge is very quiet, has a bright interior and nothing gets lot or forgotten anymore. The shelves are fully adaptable to what you need. There is heaps of space in the freezer as well. The fridge stays a consistent temperature and I like the alert to the fridge door being left ajar.
replaced 25yo FP with new FP - impressive upgrade.
On initial power up the compressor seemed a little noisy, buzzy, wheezy but after 1 day it appears to have settled down to normal extremely quiet operation.
Layout of the bottom freezer seems good, although not as much an increase in space we would have liked.
Just a top open freezer box model would have more space (no rails and baskets). In hindsite the more basic version with large area freezer at the top would have been better for our needs, maybe. Still we are happy with the new layout. Bottom freezer baskets move easily on the rails an...
