My GT-279WDC fails to get freezer to -18c and fridge to 3c simultaneously

published

My Fisher & Paykel GT-279WDC fails to get freezer to -18c and fridge to 3c simultaneously. It is relatively cool in my flat(no heaters) and I always follow manufacturers instructions, etc.

Top 3 worst fridge

published

3. LG GT-279BPL
CHOICE Expert Rating: 45%
Response to outside temperature score: 8%
10-year running cost: $978
LG is usually quite a good fridge manufacturer, but this model definitely isn't one of its finest moments. It doesn't handle temperature changes well – and in fact it received the lowest score for this test of all three of these dud fridges.
And our experts rated it as just 'Borderline' for keeping food fresh for longer, so don't forget to add the cost of food waste to the $839 purchase price.
Definitely one to avoid.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $739.

Perfect fridge for small family

published

We bought this fridge in 2018 when we moved to Adelaide. Perfect for small living space and small family. Was working good until week ago. No issues before but now making a constant noise. Not sure what was the reason.

Good Fridge for a small Family

published

It's good fridge for the small family and since it's an inverter fridge the electricity consumption is less and it's very compact good fit for a small apartment less noisy and elegant since it's dark Graphite. The price is also very good which is cheaper compared to others in the market.
The only downside is the freezer section which does not have a good ice tray as the freezer compartment is bit small.
I recommend this product.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman Online for $499.

Great fridge

I bought this fridge and it’s great at keeping the temperature just right! The freezer is fast at freezing and it was a reasonable price. Very happy with my purchase.

Perfect fridge, no complaints

published

Have this fridge for over two year now and it's still doing excellent. No fussy installation required, just plug in and switch on. Compartments are detachable for cleaning (except for the egg storage part, still can't figure out how to detach it and clean). No noise at all.

Purchased in at The Good Guys Online store for $500.

Very quiet fridge

published

I bought it for 3 people using. It look nice and energy efficient (4 stars). It is quiet and easy to use compared with my old Westinghouse fridge. It is really good with the price ~$600.
I usually buy the Samsung fridge before, now realize that LG is a good brand as well.

Good little fridge

published

It quiet and easy to clean glass shelves. Krisper keeps my veggies good for ages. Happy with purchase. Going strong after travelling interstate after several months

It looks good and is smaller than my previous fridge. It looks nice and perfectly matches the rest of my kitchen. It's energy efficient which was my main reason for choosing this model. LG is a good brand. It is quite and easy to clean. For two people this is a perfect fridge.

Great value for money from this fridge

published

First thing you have to bear in mind is that, this is not a huge fridge. That said, It maintains a good temperature and well spaced. However, during operation it can get a bit noisy which can be heard if you do not have any other sounds running in the background. Very easy to clean and it's a bang for the buck

Not cold enough

published

This fridge wasn't working as well as my old beer fridge from the start. The fridge is hot at the front where the door seal connects with the fridge, We got the technician around. He says it measures 2 degrees C inside at a setting of 6 out of 7, which is normal (I don't think it is cold enough). I am reluctant to turn it up to 7/7 but may have to in order to have cold enough beer.

Great fridge, a little noisey

published

The looks and design of this fridge is great - all the shelves are really well spaced (I was even able to adjust the shelves so that I can stand up beer bottles at the bottom) and the LED light provides amazing lighting. The pull our drawer at the top is great and so far our veges are lasting a bit better. It's the perfect size 2 people. The only thing is the compressor makes a very high pitched noise, that when there is no other noise, is quite distracting. Also, when the compressor clicks on it is quite loud.

279L Top Mount GT-279 Series

I’ve emailed LG support many times with my questions and they never answer, hopefully this forum may be successful with one question only - what is the maximum current drawn by the fridge (or maximum power input at the given voltage)? I need this to select my batteries and inverter.

279L Top Mount GT-279 Series

I purchased my fridge in April this year I love it’s size and look but am having issues with the temperature in the fridge section. I have to run it on number 1 or less as it’s so cold that it takes forever to defrost anything. I am concerned there is something wrong with the thermostat or something It is exceptionally cold on the lowest setting. Is this normal?

I would contact LG and have them come and look at it. That way you can be assured while under warranty.
