It's only OK.
I recently moved to Canberra and upon moving in my fridge space was too small to fit my large 500L Westinghouse Upside down fridge in.
I normally make any major purchase by accessing Choice and checking out their comprehensive fridge tests. I also check out productreview.com.au as well. I did this with my previous large Westinghouse fridge and it was a fantastic fridge both in function and features and never let me down. I really needed to find a fridge to fit the tiny space in my new kitchen so I assumed that Westinghouse would still be a ...good choice and I didn't bother reading the Choice testing reviews on the new model I am reviewing today. In hindsight wish I had! If I had I wouldn't have purchased this model. When the fridge arrived it wasn't cooling down both in the fridge and freezer section. I gave it a few days and the benefit of the doubt to allow for adjustments to the thermostat control. After 3 days I was only getting about 5c in the fridge and between -5 & -10 in the freezer. I believe you need at least -18 so I call The Good Guys who arrange for the Westinghouse agent to come out. The tech comes out and it appears that I might have a gas leak and that the unit has to go back to their workshop for assessment and repair. Enforcing my consumer rights under the ACL I advise that this is not acceptable to me so I called the Good Guys and they advised that they would swap it over for a new replacement unit. Unfortunately they didn't have any stock so I had to wait until the one they ordered from Westinghouse came in. OK so the following is the review for the new replacement model which works ok. It is only just acceptable. Good points. Quiet

I only write what I don't like
I own this machine for 8 months, my experience:
1. Colour temperature of LED lighting in fridge compartment is just too cold to gain my appetite.
2. The body generates heat more than usual compare with 5 fridges I owned in the past.
3. Manual ice cubes maker in freezer compartment cannot slide in and out smoothly it may be limited by material and structure design, and I have to operate with extra care to prevent water spill out of the tray.
4. (I may be overly picky about this) I often use crisper for vegetable and fruits, and I expect this...

Excellenst small fridge good star rating
The fridge is nice and quiet.
A great feature of this fridge was the 3.5 star rating. The other similar priced fridges were from obscure Chinese brands that only had 2.0 to 2.5 star ratings! This would make them more expensive in the long run.
Well planned shelving inside. Like the freezer on the bottom.
The fridge had good instructions on temp settings for prevailing seasonal weather. Also has good instructions on the crisper settings for different veggies.
love my very quiet Westinghouse fridge.
My daughter and her husband purchased this fridge for us for easier access to the fridge area, being elderly, with the freezer at the bottom. It is so quite, I often wonder if it is even working and the temperatures of both fridge and freezer departments is just perfect. The ease of removing the ice from the containers is so simple. Love love love my Westinghouse.
Does the job for a small family
Basic but stylish fridge, with capacity suited towards a small (2p) family. There's also the potential to change the preferred side of the door which I personally liked the option for. However, found that there were not enough side compartments if you're like me and have a lot of small bottles and the like to store seperately
i am very disappointed. the fridge is loud. the sales rep stated it was a quite fridge. i can hear it from my bedroom . its a fan noise so different to the compressor. i have been waking up from it thinking its the hum from the freeway but alas its the fridge so now its like i have a new freeway in my kitchen to get used to
Great fridge, simple and does what it needs
Bought this fridge in a hurry when our previous one gave up the ghost. Ordered online through Bring Lee (BTW their service was excellent during the online buying process).
The fridge is great - the storage is simple but very effective. Not 100 different spaces for things that prevent versatility, but enough to make sense.,
The freezer at the bottom comes with the standard larger drawer plus a couple of smaller ones and space for ice.
All in all, good and would buy this brand again.
Great fridge for a small to medium household
I bought this fridge in July 2017 to replace a smaller Westinghouse fridge that was seven years old. I am really happy with it so far, I like the design with the freezer at the bottom, and find the layout of the shelves in the fridge at the top very practical. The extra space compared to my old 280ltr fridge really makes a difference. My only complaint would be that at the lowest temperature setting in Winter drinks like water, juice etc can still be a little too cold for my liking but this may not bother someone else. The fridge does make noise when it is cooling but it is a soft fan like noise which I didn't find intrusive. It had a mild "new fridge" smell inside which didn't last long but no smell outside.
great product for price
good temperature control for fresh fruit and veg
a little bit noise, you only notice this when you come to kitchen at late night
you can arrange the boxes as you wish, easy to take out and clean.
bought this on ebay appliancesonline.com.au, free shipping, next day delivery, great product for less than $600 after discount.
Great value $688 for a functional fridge
Forced to downsize from a larger fridge due to new home space. The fridge keeps good temperature and the freezer space is surprisingly workable. It is not a noisy fridge but it does have a little hum but all ok, I sleep in the lounge so it is fine. It is a great fridge for 1-2 person household. All the shelves are moveable. I would recommend this fridge at such good value.
Looks superb and no fingermarks!
What a great refidgerator. Perfect for a unit or for 2/3 people. Particularly love the freezer sections, very efficient and convenient.Temperature is spot on, it is quiet and easy to clean. Would certainly recommend this fridge to anyone. My partner is so impressed with it and going to buy one as well.
Great fridge if you have to downsize
Bought this fridge as had to buy a smaller fridge to fit in a rental property. Good size, not too small and obviously not huge. Good space in the door shelves and fits most products. Shelves move around to suit products. Crisper keeps fruit and veg really fresh. No wasted food. Freezer temperature great too. Once again not huge in space buts fits enough as we have another freezer in our garage. Runs fairly quiet, no complaints so far.
It's beautiful and efficient
I made the purchase before just before Christmas 2016. So far there have been no problems. It's great not having to bend down to look into the fridge. The temperature range is constant and is perfect, the compartments are roomy and well organised. The shelves are all glass and adjustable. The engine is reasonably quiet and the fridge is very easy to clean. The freezer compartment drawers slide out, are large and easy to store food in an orderly manner.
This is the refrigerator I have hoped for.
My kitchen has a space constraint for the refrigerator. 'Tis one ticked all the boxes. It fitted into the space yet it has a mighty large capacity inside. Holds everything and more as required.
All the shelves are easy to move. The bottoms mount freezer has several compartments and packs it all in.
The manual is hardly needed, but is easy to read.
Il think this is my dream machine.

Does the job
The Westinghouse fridge/freezer is a good model to chose, the only negative being the price. I found after my purchase that other brands provide the same quality and basic functionality for cheaper. However, the fridge does provide numerous positives; the ability to change the door configuration (be sure to have the required kit), it is a medium sized fridge (ideal for a couple), location of the freezer at the bottom makes accessing the fridge much easier, adjustable vege crisper and one feature which some other fridges don't have is the ice cube dispenser. Though, it is weird how the egg holder is made for 10 eggs, not 12. I've had it for a few months now, it's easy to clean and it's reasonably quiet.
Good fridge, nothing to complain about but I wished it was a bit bigger, not too loud and easy to clean, the freezer is not roomy enough and the egg tray is smaller than the actual egg size. The cheese drawer is small but the vegetable drawer is big enough.
This item is totally useless,in my opinion
The reason why i say that is the frezzer'[s in the wrong spot ,is too small because of the draws set-up / size (even if your a single person, who gets payed only once a fortnight,like i do )!!!!!! so as such i wouldn't go anywhere near such a item if it was me!!!! but thats what i get for letting my brother get things like this for me,even after he knew the type of fridge that i oready had & wanted as a replacement,as it was this one was flooe stock from where he got it from & not even new as he told our mother,who payed him to get it for me!!!!
Overall good product
Large capacity, you can put lots of food into it. It is good to keeping food fresh and the temperature maintains good. No frost in the frozen compartment. The downside is that it is quite noisy when refrigerating Large capacity, you can put lots of food into it. It is good to keeping food fresh and the temperature maintains good.

Still goes strong, plastic maybe abit on the cheap
I have had my Westinghouse fridge/freezer for 4 years and it is still oing strong. All though in 2016 around Christmas the temperature dropped very low i had to throw out all my xmas raw fish i made. Then a week after it came back alive and the temperature was back to normal. I could not afford a new fridge at the time somim glad we waited abit.
The plastic drawers to hold the frozen goods and the veges/fruit are cheaply made. Mine have cracked ect The seals are in good condition still.
The noise aint that bad i have heard louder fridges,...i have noticed though its alot louder then when we first brought the appliance. It cools alot often aswell 4 years down. Cleaning is easy no as the shelves slip right off to give them a good scrub ect Im a happy customer with a big family, it has done us well, especially for the price.
Lovely finish to the fridge surface. Plenty of space inside. Handy bottom mount freezer makes fridge access a breeze. Draws in freezer have plenty of space. Ice cube try is great for entertaining. Keeps everything icy cold. Not too loud either. Would 10/10 recommend. Fits nicely into a small fridge recess.
Questions & Answers
Can the door of the fridge open left to right
the one I bought is already hinged L to R ie facing it, it opens from the left and swings right, but by the look of it located on top of the fridge is a plastic cover (top left hand side) which I assume are probably mount bracket holes allowing the door to be hinged on the left hence swinging R to L, same with the freezer door. There are also handles in both fridge and freezer doors to open them from either side
Adjusting the freezer temperature to try and get -15oC so my ice cream is solid seems to cause the fridge temperature to increase over 10oC. Has anyone else had this problem? I spoke to Westinghouse/Electrolux and they mentioned in summer to slide the temperature gauge to "less cold" which is counter-intuitive and didn't help with my freezer temp. It can't find any mention of summer/winter temps in the manual
How do I stop the fruit and veg from freezer have freezer section turned to low and vent open but still having veg freeze in crisper./
