Ice and water only available in s/s panels


As previously stated , ice and water " only available in stainless steel front panels " . Even supplied our cabinet maker with ice and water panel to try to fit it to cabinetry but alas could not remove it without breaking it , so now we have a expensive fridge / freezer with no ice or water capability . This should be stated in the specifications and not imply that " custom panels will suit.

Looks good and works


Ok, so this is not a cheap fridge, but we designed our kitchen around it and i'm extremely happy that we did. It looks awesome and sits flush with the cabinetry with no gaps around the edges. We have the stainless steel doors, but it can be fitted with cabinetry door instead if desired. The ice and water is "only" available with the stainless doors, but I can't see why a semi-decent cabinet maker couldn't create a door with the hole in it - maybe that's something that F&P could look into as an improvement.

It's quiet, it cools evenly, it does what a fridge is supposed to do.

Handsome refrigerator that performs as expected!


We've been using our F&P french door integrated refrigerator for 7mth now. It keeps a good even temp- no freezing spots and no milk going off too early. It looks amazing fully integrated. Good size for a family of 4. Very quiet operation- we don't hear it. Really happy, would recommend for looks and function.

Questions & Answers



does this model require a water supply?

1 answer

No... we were advised by kitchen guy not to get water feature if getting integrated as water seeps thru the custom panels and will warp the panels.



Is this fridge available with plumbed ice maker only with custom doors?

1 answer

It is only available in the ice and water model with the stainless doors. There doesn't appear to be any particular reason why though, apart from the potential difficulty of routing a custom door around the water dispenser. I do think however that a good cabinet maker could make custom doors that would work.



Have enjoyed our integrated fridge for about 7 months now but this week suddenly cracks have appeared on the inside floor of the fridge. Have you heard of this happening and what the cause would be. Is this a warranty thing? We only use a wet cloth with dishwashing liquid so pretty sure thats a reasonable cleaning method and have cleaned using this method with every fridge have owned. what would cause this?
