Disappointed in the stainless finish on door and having to replace broken closer pieces on door

Fridge was purchased in April 2019. Finger marks on door and small rust marks appeared. I had the fridge doors replace under warranty and in hindsight should have had the freezer door done at the same time as it now is showing rust marks and finger marks are impossible to wipe off (show as shiny patches). There are only 2 adults in this household who care for their home. The fridge does not have heavy use and I have no fridge magnets or any other pieces attached to the doors. Show details

Perfect fridge

I couldn't have asked for a better fridge. Been using for 6 months now and its just pure quality, maybe too high tech for my liking but that's just I didn't have a need for a high tech fridge, totally worth the money, good quality and even better performance. Show details

The fridge works ok, freezer is terrible

The Fridge runs pretty much as it should, although some items freeze if at the back of the fridge such as yoghurt etc. The trouble all starts with the freezer as others have described. The runners constantly freeze up causing the freezer draw to get stuck. Also, the ice dispenser clearly drips water onto the side of the ice bucket (probably what's causing the runners to freeze). Also, the ice tends to all freeze together after a short period of time, which also I'm sure caused by dripping water.

I called F&P and they had a local company come and look, they completely replaced the ice making unit/dispenser but still have the same problem. Contacted F&P again but never heard back Show details

Great fridge, Terrible freezer!

Great fridge, Terrible freezer. After a few months of use the freezer runner's iced up and we can't open it with out wiping the runners with warm water, or tugging with significant strength (didn't want to do this fearing more issues would result). Several calls to fisher & paykel, without any fix, a couple of contractors came out to look, they mentioned the runners and seals needed replacing, but never did it. Called over 8 times without a resolution! Don't buy it. Show details

Don’t be fooled by looks

It’s a great looking fridge with great storage and space. We installed it in Dec 2021 and now it looks awful. It scratches and dings very easily. The surface is soft so you’re can’t wear rings and can’t stay in a thorough way. The dings were made by a soft plastic duster. I contacted F&P and they eventually got back to me stating there is nothing they can do. We were warned by winnings about this fridge but we loved the look of it. Show details

Another F&P for us

After 45 years of marriage we are only onto about our third F&P fridge. The dimensions are perfect as it needed to fit into an existing cavity. It’s very quiet, even ice making during the night is not intrusive. The French door design make getting items in and out simple. The finger marks and ease of scratching the stainless doors is disappointing. Chilled water is approx 10°, whereas tap filter water is around 20°. Having ice constantly available is a bonus.  Show details

Recently our ice tray has been freezing up in clumps after the ice drops out, We have emptied multiple times, cleaned and dried before replacing. Does anyone know what the reason for this may be?

Have a French door fridge/freezer and the ice maker isn’t working properly. The water doesn’t seem to completely freeze before the tray flips therefore it tips just water into the ice dispenser is there a quick fix ??????
