Broke down less than two years old.

Stopped working 20 months old. Two months to get a technician to attend to look to repair. Came a month later and repair didn’t work. Now they’re refusing a replacement

the buzzing...the buzzing

published

buzzes like a second hand whipper snipper, at almost $3500 it's really disappointing.If you have an open plan kitchen BEWARE!!!!.. salesperson told us it was extremely quiet (lie).....freezer layout was much better than my old fridge, which to be fair was nearly 20 years old..and the lighting is good.

Cannot recommend

published

Was happy with this fridge until i realised that there would be a puddle of water on the ground due to condensation from the freezer compartments. the F&P technician said it could not be fixed so we returned the fridge (not without a lot of hassle from F&P and the store we got it from, but that's another story).

If not for the endless puddles it would be a great fridge as the internal layouts are fantastic. Maybe i got unlucky?

Worst Fridge but Customer Service was good

published

Purchased this fridge one year ago and due to the door fault, realised that we were not closing the door properly some days hence leading to water and then ice developing under the vegetable tray. Freezer was very icy and fridge was not cold, had milk and meat spoil after 2 days. Had 4 separate service guys come down and look at it, advised to defrost fridge then had a heater installed but still the same issue. Offered with refund or replacement, definitely not getting a replacement !! F&P service centre and service guys were helpful throughout the process.

Love this fridge

published

Maintains a constant temperature, easy to open and close and the shelving is easy to remove and interchange. Compartments are a good size. The only complaint we would have is that the ice compartment tends to overflow.

Mixed feelings

published

It's a beautiful looking fridge. The water and ice work well. Love the layout of the freezer, all drawers, can't believe how much they hold. Happy with the fridge design too. Had a problem with water pooling under the vegetable drawers. One of them cracked as the water turned to ice. Finally got sick of clearing it out and called them out and found this was a fault with all of them at that stage. I bought it when it first came out. The fridge doors don't close properly automatically, so several times they've been open overnight or all day. There is an alarm but it's quiet and has stopped working. Shows marks really badly.

Follow up.... the stainless steel on this fridge scratched very easily. Doors are now trashed from using fridge magnets. Looks awful. I have reported to F&P - I will see how they respond.

Update: So far Fisher and Paykel customer service have been very helpful and friendly. A technician attended, took photos and now I am waiting for the case to be reviewed by customer care.

Great refrigerator

published

Purchased this fridge in January and am happy with my decision. Quiet motor and performs well. Having the four doors is a great feature as you only have to open the door you require without opening the whole fridge. Only two criticisms - the water dispenser in the door still drips when you take your glass away after filling even though the manual states that this will stop after a few weeks. Secondly, this fridge shows every finger print on the front doors and therefore requires constant cleaning to get rid of the fingerprints.
