Westinghouse 501L Upright WRB5004SC (Stainless Steel) has been discontinued. See all Westinghouse Upright Fridges / Refrigerators.
excellent- plenty of room and keeps food cold and fresh
We bought this as part of a fridge freezer pigeon pair.
it is a big roomy fridge
At first the doors were a bit hard to open, a sharp tug generally does it, but it has now eased with use.
It seals very well.
It is part of a pigeon pair, there is a way of attaching it to the freezer but we didn't take that option, some times the fridge might move a little as we tug the door but easily pushed back into place.
Same door problem as old one, that they replaced for me
Fridge works just fine, the problem is the door, this fridge is only 18 months old at the most. Westinghouse replaced my 6 yr old fridge with this one because the door hinges just disintegrated & the door dropped. I was told not to put anything heavy in the door shelves?! What?! Now we see the same thing happening! Quite clearly Westinghouse are STILL using cheap unreliable parts on their doors & have not learnt the lesson from having to replace a whole heap of appliances with this problem. I only keep 1 x 2 litre bottle milk plus a couple of ...1 litre bottles of water in fridge door now. I really should be able to keep much more in the door than that. This company is pathetic, they do not care that we the customer have spent up to a couple of thousand dollars for a product that does not live up to expectations. Next fridge, or any appliance will be any brand BUT Westinghouse.

Door is painfull - (quick simple fix - service made had it fixed in 5 mintues) no more door issues
I Agee with everyone, the door is a nightmare with lots of kids and people going in and out of the fridge its a pain to have to wait for up to a min to reopen the door and it has scratched the floor as we tried to pull the door open.
OMG! MIRACLE CURE FOR IMPOSSIBLE TO OPEN DOOR. The other day we had a 41 degree day and the fridge wouldnt open at all, not even with trying to wedge a knife to break the seal. previously since buying the fridge it would take anywhere from 1-3 minutes to get it open. We phoned Electrolux on that 41 degree ...day. The lady on the phone was great, she had a person to our house within a few hour. Can you believe the problem was some tiny piece of plastic that is installed during manufacturing to prevent something I think during transport (cant explain exactly what it was, but the size of your thumb nail). Now no door issues, we close it and we can reopen again in seconds. If people are having door issues they need to get a service person from Westinghouse/Electrolux to come and remove this piece of plastics Thanks for the great service. We definitely will always look at your brands first when buying products. Thanks

bloody brilliant fridge, huge capacity, controls easy to operate, and the added bonus of Electrolux extended warranty. door opens very easily after closing so the problem of the door being hard to open must of been fixed. maybe an Electrolux representative can confirm. Crisper draw is easy to use as well. i am very very happy with this fridge.

Know better, choose better.
I've always wanted a fridge big enough to store food AND booze as most do one or the other.... This has HEAPS of room for BOTH! The temperature consistency throughout the whole fridge keeps the booze in the bottom icy, takes care of my fruit & veg in Tupperware Ventsmarts in the middle, and well the top is a who's who of foodstuffs as the fridge is that big. Fridge is very easy to open and soft closes for you. Design is practical for your condiments, milk, juice etc in door shelves. We accompanied ours with the matching freezer which we are equally happy with.
Everything about this fridge is perfect! The temperature, it's quiet and easy to clean. I love that it's just a fridge, there is so much space and the adjustable shelves on the side are great . There is also a safety compartment for medicine...a bonus. I love the stainless steel model...easy to clean and looks great!
Excellent except can't open the door
Bought this fridge and complained about the door within 2 weeks, three minutes before you can open it each time it is closed. A service man came out and contacted Westinghouse a new seal was order and never saw him again. He put some holes in the rubber and it worked better 15 secs to open, this was manageable. Now the days are hotter it does not want to open and sometimes I have to turn it off for awhile. Where I bought the fridge now have no record of my complaint.
Questions & Answers
The door has dropped a little. Can this be fixed? Can I do myself or do I need a service person. The fridge is not even 2 years old
