Got 10 years use from our old Active Smart Fridge so replaced with the same (it's also the only fridge by any brand that fits in the space we have so I hope they keep making it!). This fridge looks great and performs really well. The pull out freezer drawers at the bottom hold a lot and I really like the separate drawer that stores ice cube trays (and pastry packets). Another feature I like are the separate crisper bins for fruit and veges - you can adjust the airflow to each bin to suit what you are storing. The drink bottle (or wine) holde...rs are a great idea and can be moved to suit (could do with 2 more!). The door trays are very sturdy and the main one at the bottom can reliably hold our large 3L milk container alongside a water jug and various other bottles. Would happily recommend this fridge.
Purchased in November 2018 at Harvey Norman for $1,350.00.
Love it, Love it, Love it.
I got this fridge just before Christmas and I couldn't be happier with it. It is very quiet. Just the right size for the space with plenty of room inside for parties. Every time I open the door and look inside I fall in love with it again. The layout is so clean and orderly I can see everything easily. The vegetable trays are at waist height and so easy to use. We went away for a week and when we got back the fruit and vegetables were just as fresh and good as when we left. No hint of freezing products in the fridge area. The freezer is great too and very good layout which will even allow me to store an ice-cream cake.
Great fridge that fitted right in with our apartment!
This fridge was recommended to us when we moved in to a new flat as it was left hand side open and it fitted in with the kitchen door and the specific requirements. I like the freezer being at the bottom of the fridge as it is easier to access the fridge itself and the doors easily open and close. The freezer has practical compartments as well as the fridge with a spacious design as well. Very happy with the purchase indeed!

Fisher Paykel Fridge with ice maker
Great refrigerator. Works well and keeps balanced temperature in all compartments. It makes a slight noise when it's running but nothing unacceptable. Been using it for 24 months now. The ice maker is great and chilled water wonderful without loosing the shelves in the door.
only complaint is filter needs changing ever 6 months.
Works well but slightly noisy.
Good refrigerator. Works well and keeps to required temperature in all compartments. It makes a slight noise when it's trying to cool things inside but very quiet when the cycle is complete. Been using it for 8 months now. The only complaint I have with fisher and paykel is their customer service. They charge 150$ just too send too her technician out.
Perfect fridge freezer
This fridge is perfect for us. It’s 442L so there’s a lot of space and the shelves are very strong so won’t crack like some of the cheaper fridges you can get. I love that the freezer is at the bottom instead of the top as it’s more useful to have the more frequently used fridge at eye level. It’s also one of the few fridges I could find that has the option of opening to the left.
Bought about ten months ago, no issues with temperature, drawers are removable so easy to clean, nice and quiet, perfect!
Good all rounder and space saver!
This fridge was a replacement for a 10-year-old fridge. Initially, I wanted to buy something bigger, investigated lots of models and I need kitchen reno to be able to fit most of the fridges that I like. This 442 L fridge just fits and I still have room for everything. Happy with the purchase. Was not sure if stainless steel is magnetic and rang the company to find out. It is magnetic and keeps my magnets secure and fun to use!
Good looking with flexible storage
My main priority was for something that was left-hinged, bottom mounted and stylish. This perfectly fits the bill. The bonus is that the shelves are easily configurable to fit larger bottles and jars and the unit is very quiet, barely noticeable in our open plan living space.
The flat front with concealed handles gives very clean lines. The trade off is that the fridge either has to poke out from the housing unit or have a space between the fridge and the side of the housing to access the indented side door handle. No big deal but I think the...
Questions & Answers
Does the Fisher & Paykel RF442BLPX6 fridge come with a plastic egg tray, as our similar sized Electrolux did? (or is there an egg tray sold separately that would fit?)
not any more
With the 'Left Flat Door' models - does this mean the door hinges on the left side when facing the fridge?
No, the door is open from the left side meaning the hinges is on the right hand side when you are facing the fridge
Hi Zinnia. Yes the door hinge is on the left and the door opens from the right.
