Good reliable workhorse.


This was a replacement of earlier model to the same specs that lasted 18 years. So far this is repeating the good service.
Much quieter than I expected from the reviews. Much improved lighting inside. Keeps temperature steady as set. Electrically was one of the most efficient on the market and that pleases the hip pocket.

Reliable good unit


Lot of room to store foods hopefully need to careful where to put fresh food as the top level is much cooler than the bottom one and may cause the food freeze a little bit (I avoid this problem by putting the food in plastic container). Also my unit have the handle on the left hand size (not on the right as shown in the picture, possible because my one is older unit)

So far the unit is working strongly and hopefully it will have the same life span as my previous Fisher & Paykel fridge it replaced (last one was used more than 10 years)

E 442B Fridge Noise


My new fridge is also extremely noisy, 24/7. It is like having a fish tank in the room with the air filter bubbling away constantly. I am told it is the compressor pushing gas through the pipes and the serviceman told me to turn on the radio to drown out the noise!! F&P technician says all fridges make a lot of noise these days but I do not believe that at all. Will never buy another F&P appliance.

An all round good fridge


It maintains a very good temperature. The door alarm is a good. But the tiny tray in the freezer isn't that good.
It's very quiet. I can't even hear it.
It simple to clean.
So far we're happy with this fridge, but a bigger freezer section would be better for us.

So Far So Good


Bought this to replace a tired looking 18 y/o Sharp that just wouldn't die (they don't make then like that anymore).
So far we are very happy with the F&P. A little noisy at times but not as much as the old Sharp was. Keeps everything nice and cool and I swear lettuce lasts a lot longer in the crisper.
Some small annoyances. No ice maker in the freezer section (We use the trays and a tall container to store the cubes) and the doors do not automatically close, you have to push them shut.
Freezer is only just large enough for us as a couple and therefore may be a bit too small for a family.
