Doesn’t work when too full.
My food started to rot in it when it was full. Tried to get help and was told to look on p. 4 of the manual that says you have to allow for air flow so can’t put too much food in it. The company said they will send a technician but I had to pay the service fee if nothing is wrong with the fridge. I asked them to waive the fee but they refused so I refused to let them come because I thought to cut my losses. As it stands the fridge cools because I took away all food from it. In my view it is badly designed.
Purchased in December 2018 for $1,090.00.
Perfect fridge I love it
It’s great easy to use easy to find things keeps the veggies fresh
I love it value for money the freezer is a great idea either the drawer
Meat keeper is on the bottom and keeps all the meat very cold

Noisy and woeful customer service
Update On Faulty Shelf;
Almost 3 months and 3 visits from a technician (who was dumbfounded by the ineptitude of Panasonic’s service department) for a shelf that simply needed replacing as it was moulded without clips to hold it together. I had a Samsung fridge that was only a couple of years old and was a great fridge. Whisper quiet. I decided to change it over to an upside down fridge for my new house and the salesman talked me into this Panasonic fridge.
After reading the other reviews I think I got a dud. It is by far the noisiest fridge...
Best fridge, would recommend
We bought the white one because it was cheaper and suited our budget better. I am happy with the white.
The fridge is set out well.
It has 2 shelves inside, and we have a medium, small and large separations, the small one is the perfect size for tall condiment bottles to lie down. The medium is a good size for wines. The large is good for containers of food and medium height condiments.
The side doors are good. There is a shelf for us to put eggs on, we kept our egg holders from the old fridge, then we have a shelf on the side for Jam. Th...
Reliable and Quiet fridge
Love the modern design and fridge space. Its very quiet.
The only problem i find is to take anything out of the freezer is difficult as there's not enough compartments.
Must say the overseas customer service staff wasnt friendly. Would be great if the call centre is based in local.
Absolutely Top Notch
This looks so stylish in our kitchen - I love looking at it which is a weird thing to say about a fridge! This is the first one I have had with bottom mount design which I also love - its fabulous to have all the food at eye level. You have to wonder why all fridges aren't like this! Its quiet when running and has really well thought out shelving. Overall a great buy.
Exceptionally quiet fridge. Love the up down aspect. Dials on the front allow me to change temp in compartments. Fitted perfectly into my apartment space. A great investment for me. I found it Really easy to clean. Plus I love the Stainless Steel look. Panasonic is my preferred choice To buy
serves the purpose
Comparing to Sumsung it doesnt have too many different functions. I dont mind , but I would think it could b better. noisy level is ok, comparing a lots others its not too noisy I have used only few months , will find out later if.there is anything i am concerned

Great fridge from a reliable brand
Very quiet when operating.
Glass shelves are adjustable and easy to clean.
Keeps everything at the right temperature in all compartments.
Both my wife and me love the look. Wouldn't mind to pay a bit extra for the silver colour.
Not sure about the quality yet but I always trust the Japanese brand.
Bought from Harvey Norman. Its a good quality fridge with sturdy glass shelves that are easy to clean. Even though the shelves are adjustable, the heights between them are too small. Can't fit many jars upright in the open areas because of the extra, largely useless meat fridge, which is also too small to put meat in.
After one year I still love this fridge but it can get noisy
This is the best internal designed fridge I have ever had. Great space. Large crisper is awesome. It also looks very good. However, over the 12 months, we have had it is getting noisier when it does its cooling thing every night. Thankfully it does only kicks in from about 9pm or later but it can also get pretty noisy at times during the day. These noisy periods don't last too long. Maybe a few hours or so. I wouldn't want to be sleeping next to it. We did not buy the fridge with the crisper light - can't comment on that. We thought it would be simple enough to buy some led light and drop it in the crisper if we felt the need for it.
Customer service based overseas and won't honour Australian consumer protection legislation
This fridge is used by my elderly mother who lives alone and the plastic door drink holder cracked without any impact or any abnormal use - my mother is frail and not capable of impacting anything with force, after 3 years. Not fit for purpose. Not of acceptable quality. Will contact ACCC to escalate. I realise this is a grey area but a good company would just replace a piece of plastic that costs them $5 to make!
This was nice design
All things is perfect
Easy to clean
Not too much noise
Good design and nice colours
Especially gray one
Space in side perfect
Easy and good service for install
The price is high
Light inside is good and comfortable for usage ...
Best fridge ever
I absolutely love this fridge if you eat vegetables you can actually fit all of them in the crisper and they stay fresh. It's quiet, looks nice and works well for a family l like everything about it the freezer section is easy to use, easy to access. First Panasonic fridge l have ever owned and l am so pleased l purchased this one can't rate satisfaction high enough.

Working perfectly and very quiet
After disaster with a LG fridge (broken only 6 months after purchase), finally got a perfect fridge!
Temperature was maintained precisely and very very quiet (well, my last LG was constantly noisy even though it was a good inverter model).
The shelfs are well designed and very easy to use. So far I'm very happy with this fridge. Highly recommended!
This is a good fridge
the fridge's temperature is perfect for the raw and cooked food. Its quiet in the kitchen and easy to clean.I used for 6 months so far and have nothing to complaint about. Never tried after-sale service, so no comment on that. My friend said Panasonic is a great brand.Very happy with this purchase.
Love the look of the look. it maintain a good temperature in all compartments. but its a pain to get things out of the freezer because it is so deep and no divides in between. I have checked the comments before I bought it. some people complains it was too loud but luckily mine one is not.
Love this sleek look and super flat surface fridge. I don't know why this is available in Harvey Norman, when I purchased it. It keeps vegetable and fruit fresh for much longer time than any other fridges that I've ever had. Initially we wanted to buy the Mitsubishi 6-doors fridge, but it seems too big for 2 people and much more expensive. Luckily we found this model, it offers almost same functions like what Mitsubishi has and cost efficient. :)

Questions & Answers
All the lights have gone off. Is this a major problem?

Hi Anne, it is difficult to say, but you will need the unit inspected. Please contact our customer service team on 132600.
Can someone answer with a 100% certainty that the door can be changed to open to the left side? The manual of the product doesn't say a word about it. I also cannot find any info on that on the internet.
