Nice big fridge. Works well
Good spacious fridge. Everything is laid out pretty well. Not a big fan of the plastic shelving, but this one has been pretty sturdy so far, no breaks touch wood. Sometimes makes a loud noise, but generally pretty quiet. It is fairly easy to clean and stays clean. The crisper at the bottom is difficult to slide in and out. The door handles aren't obvious and sometimes miss them when opening the fridge and because they are inset, the front of the fridge ends up smudged with unsightly finger marks.
Pretty good value though.
Maintains even temperature with no frost ever. The vegetable crisper keeps my fruit and vegetables fresh for up to two weeks!Must be quiet because i have never noticed any noise even when the house is quiet.Glass shelves make cleaning a breeze.I feel like i got a great deal on this fridge.
Perfect for price and performance!
The fridge is really good. It is very cold and no frost. It is lardge enough for more than 4 people. The only problem is that the noise is a bit louder. you can hear it clearly in the night. In total, it is good for its price and function!
This lasted 1 year and a week
I brought this fridge 1 year and a week ago and it has actually been a crappy fridge temp fluctuations now no temp except for salmonella warm. Not the best $1100 i ever spent Betta electrical said we may need to take it away to fix, my response j need a fridge "don't you have a spare one, the workman will decide when they are there what to do" I think a replacement is in order not a repair don't you think?
Roomy, big refrigerator ... but NOISY !!
After my old 520 litre Kelvinator Opal series fridge stopped working after 12years of trusted service and a move interstate, we rushed out to buy a new refrigerator. Our location gives us only one appliance store nearby or we are faced with an expensive trip to Adelaide & suburbs. That said, the local store would order in just about any fridge within their catalogue so we weren't terribly limited for choice.
Brands recommended to us included Beko, Miele, LG, Fisher & Paykel and a couple of others. Strangely Kelvinator was not mentioned.
Kelvinator Fridges - Don't buy them anymore!
I bought a Kelvinator (made in Australia model) fridge in December 2015. In February 2015 it suddenly stopped working. I lost all of the food in this fridge. I called Electrolux and they said they would send me out another fridge as a replacement. Two days later I received the replacement but, to my utter disbelief this stopped working after one day! Again, I lost hundreds of dollars of groceries that I bought to replace the first batch of groceries I bought. I asked about compensation for lost groceries and the response was "we can only repl...ace the lost groceries from the second fridge but not the first faulty fridge because you don't have the first fridge anymore" (No kidding - you took it away two days ago because it wasn't working). Electrolux has been extremely difficult to contact and customer service is terrible. I have now been without a fridge in the middle of the Queensland summer for over a week without resolution. Please be warned - Kelvinators and Electrolux are now made in Thailand and the quality has diminished substantially. Unfortunately customer service seems to have gone downhill with it.
Questions & Answers
My fridge is not cooling. Freezer isn't freezing. I tried overnight to adjust different temperature settings. Not blowing any cold air at all
My brand new fridge/freezer stopped freezing after 7 weeks. It turned out to be a gas leak. It has now been replaced by another new one nearly two weeks ago. Will wait and see how this one goes!
You will probably need a technician to come out to inspect it.

It sounds like your thermostat is not working properly. It should still be under warranty. Contact Kelvinator.
