Stop running after less than 5 years
The fridge is not running, this happens in less than 5 years, which is very short time for the fridge, and yes we paid $2000 for that at the end of 2014. Pretty disappointed.
Purchased in October 2014.
worst fridge ever
fridge was noisy from start. never got cold enough and now after 3.5 years. fridge has stop cooling . freezer still ok . pretty bad for a $2000+ fridge i was expecting 10 years +
Purchased in May 2015 for $2,000.00.
Brilliant refrigerator until it stopped working.
I bought a Sharp SJ-F624St refrigerator in December 2014 and we have been very happy with it until now. It has stopped completely and have been told that the compressor needs replacing, which I believe is an extremely costly job.
Surely such a critical component of a refrigerator should last more than 4 years.
What can I do to avoid a costly repair?
Purchased in December 2014.
Overall very happy, I was a little nervous reading review of occasional noisy fridge, this one barely a sound! Space is great, doors don’t close easily though and kids need re training to not flick it shut and walk off. Lighting good, overall very happy, just love the deep ice cube container
Like the space in Fridge and Freezer. Layout is great. I have following concerns though.
1. Compressor/Fan constantly runs unlike my 10 year old LG.
2. Top Doors are misaligned. I could get the bottom ones aligned but could not do the same for to ones.
3. Compressor is louder than my old ones.
Can't live without it.
It is really trust worthy, dependable and durable, I got a feeling that I cannot move on without it. It is very efficient and excellent in electricity consume. Great product for a great price, I have been using only Sharp refrigerators in my life and would recommend any one, and you will never regret.
Really good quality fridge
I bought this fridge when I moved in and it's still as good as ever. Temperature is always consistent in all areas I never have to worry about cold or warm spots. My fresh produce always lasts the distance with this fridge compared to my old one. It's not noisy at all and the French door style is just perfect. Love having all the freezer space in drawers which makes cleaning a breeze.
VERY NOISY due to small plastic door hinge retainer which broke in half after only a couple of weeks
Contacted there so called CUSTOMER CARE line to let them know what had happened.Bearing in mind it is still under warranty, to let them know what had happened.And was told if you want service you will have to pay a CALL OUT FEE. to replace a small PLASTIC retainer held in by 2 self tapers.I asked the person in question if they could send out the part as small as it is,and I would change it myself.As a result they told me I would have to ring there SPARE PARTS DIVISION in QUEENSLAND!!!.Turns out the person in spares does not have a clue!!.He can't understand the parts drawing in reference to the part we require.As the drawings are too blurry to read.
A set of 6 plastic retainers comes to about $4.00.Also they are expecting me to pay a postage /handling fee too have them sent from Queensland to Sydney.ALL THE WHILE THE FRIDGE IS SUPPOSED TO BE UNDER WARRANTY!!.Save your money people an DONTt buy a SHARP FRIDGE.As there is NO SERVICE.which just typifies any thing to do with the housing industry. We paid $1362 .00 for this fridge and this is the thanks we get for it .Being treated like IDIOTS.
I love this fridge i find it very good quality i bought it 8 years ago and iits still working perfectly .. its big and nice i love the design of it .. i like the fridge its organized and big .. easy to clean and maintain. . I highly recommend it.
The search for a French door fridge when you have a very limited amount of space, is like looking for a needle in a haystack and even single door top/bottom mount freezer the space is like a jigsaw and through searching for days we finally found this little gem
Now this fridge is spacious - in single door top/bottom mounted fridges we were limited to a capacity of 514L due to the dimensions of the fridge and not one single French door fridge could fit in the space. This sharp fridge gets applauds as the dimensions are perfect with enough breathing room within the enclosure.
The space inside the fridge is amazing, well thought out and the lighting is very bright and LED lights which dramatically reduces the prices to older fridges and cuts down on internal heating within the fridge when the doors are open. The freezer is well organized with compartmental drawers and easily fit in all our foods for freezing, however whenever they are in a box if its possible to remove the box such as ice-creams, has an icemaker normal tray and no plumbing required with draws underneath to catch the ice so can have plenty in reserve.
The energy rating is adequate, now when I first got this fridge and plugged it in I did become bewildered by something that is declared normal, around the doors there was somewhat a large portion of heat, I though I crap its faulty but apparently if you do buy one of these its a normal function to stop mildew forming.
Another thing I must mention is that its French doors has 4 doors in total, very convenient as the door width when opening is less than most fridges and I really do like it
I gave this fridge 4 out of 5 stars as there is one reason to this, it would have been nice as the price to have an active display and more easier controls in navigation of temperatures - it is a little tricky and with my other fridge an LG French door the controls are just so basic and easy to identify with. The display is the only thing that prevented me to give a 5 out of 5 otherwise I would have. PS I love my LG fridge as my LG fridge is going on 15yrs now and its been moved around including interstate and back and works like a charm - I hope the sharp does in contrast perform and lasts like my LG
Also big thanks to the staff at the good guys
have been waiting for parts for a SJXE624FSL one off the doors . they first told me 6 to 8 weeks then after 8 weeks they said it will take another 3 months know they tell me they don't know when . its a disgrace that a company does not hold parts for one off the latest fridges . DONT BUY SHARP NO BACK UP
No problems with this fridge!
Love this fridge. The design is great - the shelves hold a lot and the doors allow you to store higher items that don't fit in the shelves. The freezer trays are great and being all individual compartments allows means I don't lose things at the bottom for years!
The only downside is that I bake a lot of cakes and I have had to purchase a separate cake fridge as the height of the shelves in this model means that it simply will not hold any high items.
We haven't had a problem with the noise. We have 2 small boys so maybe they just drown it out!!
Looks the business, and performed well... for 3 years.
This was just about the best looking fridge in the shop. The interior seemed like the most attractive and functional as well. When we got it home it proved to be a very easy to use fridge, loads of room, easy to keep clean. Keeps everything a good temperature, meat area is nice and cold.
The digital display is ok, shows how cold the fridge is set to, rather than how cold it actually is though, you still need a thermometer to check that out. The stylish stainless-like finish is much, much easier to clean than brushed stainless, with zero rust and fingerprint stains. It is also still magnetic, so kids pictures can still be given the honour of being stuck on the fridge.
It makes gurgling noises, a bit of compressor hum, a clunk every now and then. Nothing too worrisome. Until now, three years in and the compressor noise became high pitched and tinny. Then it stopped. There is just a solenoid clunk and then a hum then it stops, over and over. I checked the fridge and freezer and they had both started to warm up, so I unplugged it. Now I have to contact Sharp and see what they have to say.
Was loud, now dead!!
Love the lay out and look of fridge, french door design makes it easy to store large items, fitted kitchen space. Was noisy.. Purchased Dec 2015, died Dec 2017, 8 days past manufacturer's warranty and 6 days before Christmas!! Assuming compressor, have extended warranty with Good Guys thankfully, waiting on service call and next step...
We purchased this fridge as it was one of only a few that would fit in our kitchen. I love the layout of the fridge. But its really loud when the compressor is working. Loud enough to be heard in the next room. Another thing thats annoying is one of the doors does not sit flush with the other 3.
Loud!! Beware this is a very noisy fridge!
We just purchased this model (last week) and chose it because it looked stylish, I loved the layout and it was the right size to fit our kitchen, however, the first one that was delivered last week omitted an unacceptable high pitched continuous loud noise. We had a replacement fridge delivered that does not have the high pitched squeal, however, it also produces a continuous and constant hum. The only time the fridge goes quiet is when I open the fridge door. As soon as I close the door the hum kicks in again. It goes 24/7 and although it is much better than the high pitched squeal, it is still an unacceptable level of noise for a fridge to omit, and can be heard even with the TV on. It's also the first thing I hear when I wake up despite our bedroom being a good distance from the kitchen. The new fridge was just delivered yesterday, so I'll give it the weekend, but if the noise doesn't stop it will be going back. Very disappointing as I love the fridge, looks great, perfect cooling, fabulous usable layout. I would love to keep this fridge but can't stand the constant noise. I am confused as to how other owners with the same model have a very quiet fridge when my never stops making noise! For the price I would expect better.
Loud Noise from compressor (I assume)
The fridge has been fantastic and is still operation well, however the noise is now so loud from the compressor (we assume that it is that) that it can be heard upstairs in a closed bedroom. Always sops when the door is opened but as soon as it shuts it kicks back on and tries to take off. The noise is louder that the pool pump and the fridge is starting to vibrate.
It was purchased from The Goo Guys Castle Hill in December 2014.
Dissapointed with the product at this stage. Need to get it looked at.
BEWARE THE FREEZER DOOR. Weak magnets
Less than 2 years old. Magnets on freezer door are soo weak when you close the fridge door the air pressure forces the bottom freezer door to pop open slightly. Just enough to not notice -- condensation forms, cold air escapes. Fridge runs all night or day till you realize. Happens all the time and yes drawers are in all the way with nothing blocking them. Lights are weak. Layout and drawer design is good.
This unit began to make extremely loud noises after about 4 months. It is rattling and also has knocking sounds. This is not what one would accept considering the price of the product. This is a shame as it is quite a nice looking fridge and aside from the noises it does what it should do. However, as said earlier, the loud noises are unacceptable.
Nice fridge but compartments limit storage room
This is a nice looking fridge but its compartment make the fridge a little smaller than its size, especially for the freezer as the vertical separation certainly limits its storage space. Fridge also doesn't cool enough and we typically have to set the fridge temperature down to 0C but it still does not feel that cold. When there are many things in the freezer, it also cool things very slowly (we put the beers into the freezer for about 1.5-2 hours and when the guests arrived, they are still not very cold).
