I am really happy with my recent purchase of this fridge. I had read it was noisy, however I haven’t found this at all. It is well set out, easy to see everything in the fridge. I did find the 3 degree setting a little too cold, so I have turned it up to 4 degrees to see how that is. The lighting in the fridge is great too. I do however, wish there were some lights in the freezer.
Our perfect first brand new fridge ever!
We like Japan product brand because the quality is very good. It has been 1 year now and no problems at all. The temperature is always cold inside the fridge and it does not take long to freeze ice blocks or other stuff in the freezer. Very easy to adjust the temperature and to clean up. A bit of noise but no big deal at all. Highly recommended.

Was bit suspicious on this fridge before purchasing due to the online review of the awful motor noise.
But once it turned up and spin,Jes that was Silent ,so for me the rumor is not existed.
The only thing is if you read the instruction,the motor will spin loud once per day as for the need of maintenance so it is normal that way.
As for the cooling function,it does not have many fansy programmings but it does the main job well.
And also it provides extra large freezer space !
Well done especially at this price and satisfied.

One of the best fridge we ever had
We had this fridge since 2014. It's one of the best fridge we ever had. love the Japanese quality. We were worry when upgrading out fridge because there are so many things could go wrong. This fridge is quiet and never let us down. Maintenance on Sharp fridge is very low. We will definitely buy another Sharp product.
its so quiet, and also very easy to clean. I have already owned it for years still use like a new one. Temperature is easily changeable with Digital display
Unit is Surprisingly quiet. Very stylish design with more than enough room for everything a big family needs
See through doors on the internal freeze made looking for something without the loss of chill ideal.
it does maintain a good temperature in all compartments it is quiet and it is easy to clean
i am very satisfactory to use this refrigerator. i give a high evaluation i hope the company will continue to make a better refrigerator, all the best and good luck for all of you
It can get quite loud but the four compartments come in very handy! I love the handles and it maintains a consistent temperature in all four compartments. The price is alright but I have since found cheaper/more efficient fridges by bigger brands such as Samsung or LG! Late at night, the noise can get irritating but if you live in a big house it shouldn't be a problem!
Large, efficient, not as noisy as some say
We chose this fridge after extensive research and back and forth from many different stores. We are so happy that we ended up choosing this 4 door French fridge. There is so much room in the fridge and the FREEZER. It’s great for parties and we absolutely love that the freezer has so much space and we are able to keep meats away from other items by using the drawers. It makes for great organisation. It makes some random noises but it’s not loud at all. All fridges make these noises.
Probably the best fridge my household has ever had. I love the 4 doors it makes it so easy to get what you want. Especially the freezer section. Being short the fridges with the deep freezer draws are not ideal for me, so this fridge having two door freezer compartments is perfect. Plenty of space for everything and the temperature is perfect. also the main fridge section has a mirror at the back meaning you can see all your food, this is a great idea and makes it easy to see food hidden in the back. There is more than enough space in this frid...ge, yet at the same time it physically doesn't take up too much room. The noise is pretty quiet, I sometimes hear it from the living room but usually you don't even notice its there. At first I noticed the fridge section wasn't keeping food as cold as my old fridge however now it seems to be fine. Only downside is the panel on the front doesn't seem to display anything. Either I haven't read the booklet well enough or there's not meant to be anything there. An overall great fridge
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 bre...athing 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 love the look of this fridge, plenty of room, love the ice dispenser, easily organised freezer compartments. But ........ the noise! So very noisy and FREQUENTLY. It disturbs my sleep and sometimes the noise turns to a vibration which does not stop. I have had to turn off mains power on a number of occasions to stop it. I also notice the right door seal gets quite hot. We had guests for dinner one night recently and all said there was no way they would consider one based on the noise. Due to a busy Christmas/New Year schedule have not yet had time to call re service. Just hope I've not bought a lemon.
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
Awesome fridge, great quality, LEDs lights are very nice and the temperature is being kept perfectly.
It hasn't been noisy at all, it looks great in our kitchen and the really can not find a problem with the unit. We had the fridge for six months so far, highly recommended.
Great fridge, not noisy,
great fridge, drawers in freezer work very well to keep everything in place, temperature in fridge is constant and nothing gets too cold/freezes, not noisy like others have mentioned, they must of fixed any issues on current production, fridge is very heavy and need at least three strong guys to move it up starts safely, (did it with two but was not safe imo)
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!!
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.
Too noisy. Omg even noisier than 10 years old one.
Its our first time to use new one in our life.
However it starts making "wizzing" nosie once we use after half day.
And so loud now. And keep going. We didnt check this review before.
Bought from goodguys. And checked only goodguys review. So regretble i should have checked this so much noisy issue review.
I cant believe its louder than 10 years old samsung or lg brands.
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 m...uch 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.
Questions & Answers
what is the dba sound level on the SJXE624FSL 174703
I don't know the number, but it is quite noticeable even during the day, But only when adjusting its set temperature only,other times quiet.
I find ours very annoying and loud for a fridge. I would avoid and go with a different brand. Customer service poor and unhelpful.
Hi Stuart, our team has responded to your email with this information.
I bought it about three years ago , the fridge stopped cooling the top compartment today. Two bottom freezer compartments, are ok . Motor is running , no problems with power. What could be wrong?
Hi Chandra, you can turn off the unit for 24 hours and switch it back on. If this does not resolve the issue we recommend contact a Sharp approved service centre near you for assistance. https://www.sharp.net.au/support/customer-support/service-centre-locator
Thanks for your advice . The unit is off , fan has been taken out and awaiting replacement Freezer Motor Fan , that is what I have been told ( by repairers that I I engaged and i thought were very prompt in diagnosing and fixing such problems ) could be the problem. I have also been told that there are no guarantees that once the fan is replaced , the fridge is going to work or not. Initially I was told it is the sensor was the problem , then I was told it is the FAN . I am not sure what is next . I have taken the matter up with the company that I engaged to diagnose and fix the problem. That is another matter that I am pursuing apart from getting the refrigerator back on line that has been off for more than 10 days.
I went and saw Good Guys where I bought the unit from . They are of no help at all although it is only seven months outside the warranty period. They told me to contact SA. When I contacted the nearest Sharp Service provider that is listed on their site , they said that they no longer service Sharp Equipment. And Then I rang the next nearest , which is about 85 km from my place, they said they don't go that far. And Sharp Australia, who I have been trying to contact through their wed site, did ring me up once , with a promise to follow up by email, but I have found them to be little help if anything . I think GG sold me a lemon . And a repairer who so far has not identified the actual problem ... but one step at a time . I live in hope.
Is it possible to have the fridge display the current temperature of the fridge and freezer compartments? I know how to set them. Seems a waste of a display if this is not possible.
