Very noisy!

published

I hate our new fridge because it’s so noisy. We’ve had several Westinghouse fridges before which have been fine. This one let’s it’s presence known all the time!! Definitely not suitable for open plan living areas which most houses have these days. I don’t understand how a company like Westinghouse could allow such a product on the market. I’ll be getting a new fridge and it definitely won’t be Westinghouse.

Poor quality shelves

published

Top shelf is already sagging a day after we got it under the weight of condiments. Poor quality and design if it can't deal with the weight of normal fridge items. Glass shelves are very flimsy compared with our last Westinghouse fridge. Beware!!!

Don't buy it. Repair every month.

published

Worst fridge I have ever used. The fridge failed after one month and compressor was replaced. Same thing happened one month later. Repair man was scheduled 3 weeks after. No compensation for the food and medication at all. So disappointing. Will never recommend.

DO not BUY!

published

If you plan to bin $$$ of foods cost after 2 weeks purchased brand new Westinghouse Fridge and again after 15 months new replacement because of the same PERFECTly defect compressor than consider to buy it with this define promised!! According to the nice repair man of Electrolux on the both days visited to repair it! this product was manufactured with perfectly defect compressor and still, it is being SALE unintentionally to customer. Well done Westinghouse! I am unintentionally off for another product after i got my store credit!

Hi Tania, It is resolved - I am receiving a store credit to purchase a new fridge (not a Westinghouse/Electrolux) & putting in an application for compensation for spoilage of food.

A dud

published

Bought this fridge in January and the compressor went in September. Very noisy. Doors very hard to open.
My last Westinghouse fridge went for almost 30 years. Very disappointed with this.. Changed to a Samsung & so far it's good, not noisy like the Westinghouse.

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $1,195.

I can't believe a modern fridge could be this noisy.

published

This fridge sounds like a motorbike revving up in the kitchen every half hour, around the clock, and once the revving settles down, the compressor can be heard from the other end of the house. It's no fun being woken at 3am by your fridge. I mean, my old LG fridge was 15 years old by the time it died and you would never even know it was running. How is it possible for a much newer model be so outstandingly bad?? As soon as I can afford to replace this fridge, I will, and you couldn't pay me to buy a Westinghouse now.

High Pitch Noise

published

The fridge has a high pitch sound that is driving me insane. I have a constant ringing in my right ear now. I had the first one replaced because of the noise, but the replacement is just as bad. I have tried very hard to live with this, but I think I’ve reached my limit. It feels like it is messing with my hearing it’s that bad. Otherwise, I love the fridge.

453L Bottom Mount WBE4500 (Integrated Handle)

Hi I have just installed a Westinghouse WNE4500 bottom mount and the fan seems to be running continuously since install 8 hrs ago. Is this unit supposed to have the fan running 24/7 or will it settle down over in the short future?
