Black sticky goo seeping from fridge after only 2 years. Was free standing with plenty of air flow. Now freezes things and doesn't seal properly. I have had to remove the black goo as it has been progressively worse and now is pulling the seal out of its housing After reading other reviews I find it seems to be a common fault. has this been covered by others out of warranty

Purchased in for $3,300.

Really disappointed

published

Fridge is only just over 3 years old and the protruding plastic clips that you attach the shelves to on the door has completely snapped off. I have never ever owned a fridge that has ever had this issue. To repair the fridge the entire fridge door needs to be replaced for around $500. Not sure if I will just purchase a new fridge from another company rather than replace the door, as after reading everyones issues I am concerned that something else may go.
This is my only complaint about this fridge otherwise I have been very happy.

Black Tar like ooze seeping from doors

published

We were actually happy with the fridges, everything seemed to work good, then the tar monster came to visit!
Black tar like oozing from the centre pillar between the doors.
We just cleaned it thinking it would be ok, but it keeps returning, and now it has torn the door seals
Pretty disappointed, fridges are an investment of a lot of money and I feel it was a bad investment :(

Piece of expensive junk

published

Many isues with this fridge:
Yes, water pipe in freezer door failed, water pipe to back filter failed (massive kitchen flood), fridge door fell of hinges. Replaced doors ($$$) fixed rear piping, today the display board failed (luckily freezer and fridge still working)......Due to these persistant failures I would never buy a Westinghouse/Electrolux product again.
Will try to repair the Display unit myself after finding a spare and willpersit until its not economical to repair...never Westinghouse again!!

water leak from bottom of freezer door and fridge door bottom hinge coming apart

published

Hose for the water dispenser split. I managed to fix it with different hose parts. The old hose is rock hard and just disintegrates when you touch it. I figure the hose costs under 50 cents on a $3000 fridge. Come on Westinghouse....You can put in a better quality hose that stays soft and doesn't turn brittle for only a few cents more..
The second issue I have is the bottom hinge on the fridge door(not the freezer) is disintegrating. I will need to replace the door or just junk the fridge.
Fridge is only 10 years old. The water hose broke after less than 5 years.

Purchased for $2,600.

Fantastic Fridge

published

I was looking for a very long time for a fridge to suit the fridge space I have (larger than average). I did not want one that required plumbing and this was the best option. Although it does not have bells and whistles it is a very spacious fridge (freezer a bit smaller which is great). The only minor issues I have with it is the ice tray sits low and the bottom storage in the fridge door is not very accessible (hidden by the upper compartment)

Rust on door and icemaker

published

From these reviews sounds like our rust took a few more years and was lucky. Our door has rusted around dispenser and rust is everywhere in ice maker I am so upset my grand children use it constantly so unhealthy. Went to look at new Westinghouse fridge freezer ice maker no where near quality of what I would expect from high end market drawers of freezer cheap and flimsy not in running in comparison to say Samsung was quite impressed with theirs.

Hi Mick, I believe that they just clip on pushing down, and its push up to take them back off, but I'd check via any instructions you can find on the web or youtube
