The freezer is full of frost and ice builds up
Our old F&P fridge lasted a fair number of years, after some small warranty repair, and we got used to the layout so the new one had to be F&P again. Similar experience to the last purchase, a brand new fridge has issues. This time it's an ice builds up inside the freezer, which gets open once a day, with room temperature around 20-25 degrees and low Canberra humidity. Obviously, the door seal is faulty on the two weeks old fridge. I think that's the last product we bought of this brand, Fisher & Paykel.

My best friend
I love this fridge/freezer. It is energy efficient, quiet and keeps everything at a great temp, especially with the control drawers in the crispers. The lighting is so bright making it easy to see what you have. So easy to use the freezer with the easy glide out drawers. It even has a thin draw to store pastry sheets or pizzas. Great buy.

Good fridge but faulty when left factory
I purchased this fridge 2 1/2 years ago , unpacked and installed by Good Guys and never moved by me since. I recently discovered a sizeable gap in top door when cleaning which FP technician said must have left factory like that. After adjustment to close gap requiring considerable brute force by FP I can notice a much heavier pull required to open the door now. So how much extra electricity was wasted before restoring the door to how it should have been in the first place? Not happy to pay $170 for shoddy assembly.

Great Fridge great size
We have had the fridge for 10 months and it is just right for our family. Temperature for winter and summer is just right and easily adjustable if necessary. Plenty of room and good sized vegetable drawers. The stainless steel needs occasional cleaning but that is a simple wipe job. I'm pleased with this purchase.

Love F & P
This was to replace my 18y.o. Fisher & Paykel which was great. This upside down model had proven to be even better. 519lt gives ample fridge and freezer space. Extremely quiet motor. Maintains constant temperature. Have now had it for 4 months and cannot yet fault it. Very happy with my purchase.

Absolutely Love It
This fridge is so roomy and the temp inside just amazing. The freezer on the bottom makes life so much easier for me. My ice is frozen so much faster and the fridge opens and closes so much easier, it doesnt slam shut and the open fridge door alarm is really good not annoying. There is nothing about this fridge I dont like to be honest its simply stunning.

Perfect fridge for a home
Excellent design with plenty of space. Always maintains consistent temperature and bottom freezer is very handy to use. Water is dispenser is an excellent feature with very easy filter replacement settings. Ice dispenser is also very reliable with a quality design. Everything works perfectly.

Great working fridge but annoying stainless steel coating
The working functions of the fridge and freezer are great. What we don't like is the stainless steel coating which is described as easy clean with soapy water and stainless steel cleaner can't be used. However unlike conventional stainless steel appliances every time any one touches the fridge it will leave finger prints which look terrible. To keep the fridge looking nice you will be washing the front of the fridge everyday - especially if you have kids - so annoying!

So easy to clean!
With our new kitchen we wanted everything streamlined and minimalist. This fridge is perfect. It has integrated handles, although I was worried that it would get too many fingerprints because there is no obvious handle. We do get a few but it is so easy to clean that it is not an issue at all. It is well designed with a great layout.

Sleek, modern and functional
First time purchasing a bottom mounted fridge which replaced my top mounted Westinghouse fridge that lasted 14 years.
Initially wanted a french door fridge but glad I changed it to a bottom mounted.
Purchased from Appliances Online and was extremely impressed with their customer service.
Ordered at 8.30pm by phone, changed my order at 11.30pm, delivered by 10.30am the following morning.
Delivery service included free installation and removal of the old fridge.
Fast turn around was due to stock being available in their warehouse.
sleek, modern design, recessed handles gives it an understated and minimalist look ...
Great looking fridge, which controls temperature really well. Great space inside with some really sturdy shelves. It can be a litttle noisy at times but nothing too extreme just went you have loaded it up and its trying to get back down to temperature. I would have no issue buying this fridge again or recommending it to others
Great looking fridge.
Great stainless steel design and very sleek. I am amazed by how strong the plastic trays are - apparently, it can withstand a 70kg of weight! The bottle chill feature is very neat and I do like the spaciousness of this fridge. Perfect for storing a large number of frozen meals.
Giving this a four star as the features are just very basic.
At last, a User Friendly Fridge/Freezer
When our old side by side fridge/freezer Westinghouse broke down after 17 years faithful service, we initially thought to replace it with more of the same. However once we reached the white goods store, we were captivated by the so called "Bottom Mount" variety of items. Much more convenient for us senior citizens, having a full width fridge (unlike the side by side with only narrow fridge shelves) and the freezer at the bottom.
After comparing many diferent brands, we were drawn to this Fisher Paykel model as not only does the silver finis...h look rather special, inside the unit becomes a virtual "Tardis" with heaps of space in the fridge and easy slide drawers in the freezer. The inset/recessed opening to the doors rather than extruding handles, ensures that little grand children fingers don't start grabbing and opening the dorrs when our backs are turned! Only a month in but so far very impressed with our Fisher Paykel bottom mount fridge.
Great fridge, really happy with it. Large and looks great in the kitchen.
Very happy with this Fisher Paykel fridge. Fridge is at the top and freezer at the bottom. Opted for stainless steel version which looks good. Large fridge and freezer and has very consistent cooling in all sections. Easy to access the temperature and alarm controls. This is our second Fisher and Paykel fridge and are happy with both.
Questions & Answers
Does it have egg holders?
HI Wayne. I don't think it did but if so I would have put them out. I prefer to get my eggs fresh that have not been in the fridge and then they can stay on the bench or in my cupboard. of course once they have been refrigerated then you need to place them in the fridge but with so many compartments and shelf adjustments then I would use an egg carton or an egg holder from the market . Hope this helps. Cheers
Answer is in the manual
Does it come in white?
Not sure, I have only seen steel colour.
Just bought this fridge this thursday from HM and delivered today, as it instructed to leave the fridge for 3 hours by the delivery guy and then leave empty running for 2 to 3 hours before putting food in. However since it started run, the back is making noise and now the noise is running almost 1 hour. Not impressive! Called the service line tonight and asked why, got answer to either replace it or send service guy?! Does anyone have similar experience for this mode?!
NO all was well with mine . ask them to check it
Thanks, the loud noise was running from first set up at 6:30pm till stop at 9:17pm. Was stopped around 8:35 or 8:36pm for a few minutes then back running again till 9:17pm. The door on top side is so hard to open. I probably picked up a lemon I think.
No problem with mine. Quiet as a mouse. If it were me, I'd ask them to replace fridge.
