Dud Fridge

published

Bought this fridge in May 2012 and its now dead. Fridge mechanic said it had a pinhole leak and it wasn't worthwhile fixing. Cant believe that a fridge in this day and age lets me down so soon. Called the service center in Sydney and they said because i didn't get their fridge mechanic to look at it they were not prepared to assist. Dud service all round, Will never Buy a Westinghouse appliance for the rest of my life!

Terrible

published

I purchased this refrigerator in October 2011. In December 2015 it began freezing up.
1. No it does not maintain a good temperature in any compartments.
2. It was louder than it should have been while it was freezing everything, then it quietened and stopped cooling altogether.
3. Easier to clean is subjective - easier than what? There were never leaks/spills that were not instantly cleaned up.

Everything Freezes or is too warm

published

I purchased this Fridge 2 years ago to keep drinks in. The back wall ices up constantly. If you move the temperature knob 1 mm the temperature changes drastically. We have had to put up with warm drinks or frozen drinks we have had exploding cans, frozen bottles. I really think one day I will go on here and read someone has been seriously hurt from a drink exploding as someone opens the door to one of these death traps.

Not impressed with Westinghouse fridges at all - were good once but not anymore!!!!

A fridge that only lasts 2 years!

published

Purchased in November 2012. The temperature control of the fridge has always been poor but it did the basic job.
Lasted two and a half years. Warranty only lasts for 2 years. How convenient.
Like many others, the compressor was running 24/7 but not cooling the interior.
This fridge must be made to last two years only
I thought the Westinghouse brand meant quality. Obviously they do not care about the consumer!!
I can guarantee the following:
1. No more Westinghouse fridges (and I will tell everyone I know the same)
2. Before I buy another fridge I am going to read reviews first rather than just listen to some saleperson in the store

The worst fridge purchase we ever made

published

Bought the pigeon pair in 2010. Have had nothing but trouble with them both. Temperature very hard to control, either too hot or too cold. Freezer drawers all broken due to the cold temperatures. The REAL Problem is now the Fridge has stopped working. The Motor and fan still works but we think the thermometer is gone. Considering we have only had it for 4 and a half years this is really disappointing. To replace new is over $600 which I don't have and I don't think we should pay a repair man at least $300 to repair it when it is not our fault and the fridge has been well looked after. Would not buy one again

A shocking fridge

published

I bought the WRM2400WC about 2 years ago with the side by side freezer. The condensation is awful and I always seem to have water seeping out at the bottom trays. I have adjusted the temperature numerous times to no avail and have continual problems with food going off well before its use by date. Don't know whether it's worth having it looked at judging by othe people's comments. I also have problems with the freezer freezing more at the top end than the bottom.

Westinghouse brand stands for nothing

published

This fridge has completely failed inside 3.5 years. It has not been moved at all since it was delivered. The costs of on site service to apply parts still covered under warranty are very prohibitive. A terrible customer experience, dealing with the fridge and inept customer service staff. Avoid this brand.

Hi, We are looking at replacing our existing Westinghouse (20 years old) with the same brand but am now wondering if we should be looking elsewhere. Disappointed with all the bad reviews. Di

Great for my unit!

I bought the Westinghouse WRM2400** and found it to be very quiet and functional.Considering the price $550 from my local electrical store, i am very happy with the performance of this product.Initially i was concerned with the condensation on the rear wall,then read the information sheet explaining that this was normal and demonstrates that the fridge is operating correctly.Overall a great buy and pleased with its performance.
Very quiet,simple design,inexpensive
Vegetable/fruit compartment too small for my needs.Needs a warning regarding the condensation

Disappointed

Questions & Answers

CJ Tasasked

WRM2400WC (White)

Westinghouse fridge WRM2400WC icing up around fan. Runs continually. Seal looks OK. Drain clear. Turned off to deice but after 30 mins panel top left starting creaking and bowing into the fridge. Turned fridge back on and rear panel went back into place. Still icing up. Have checked rear is clear of fluff etc. Is there anything I can do? Or is a case of new fridge? I live in a rural area so it will be expensive to get technician and looking at comments, likely that it will be a new fridge required. It's not that old either.

Hi mate,

If it's already out of warranty, bad luck, get a new one. Not worth fixing at all. It will come back after you get it fix anyway.

Cheers

My saga would take too long to type but, errmm, buy a new fridge.

I paid for the service call to determine the fridge was buggered, it was a year out of warranty. Too'd and fro' and accepted a replacement unit for a tad under $300, plus $130 service call. Same week Aldi had 240ltr fridge identical to old Westinghouse (new one isn't the same and isn't as useful) for the disgusting price of ******, and a hundred or so less than the total I paid out to Electrolux.

The point of the exercise is not service or response times, it's the fact that a cheap product that is highlighted as having a light, great lol, will only last a very short time. A product that, and I quote from an Electrolux representative that costs thousands cannot be expected to last long either because of all the bells and whistles included means that it will guarantee that it will fail within or without the warranty period and nobody is surprised in either case.

Yes, seems like new fridge is the only answer. Sigh! Have six year warranty. Fingers crossed!

WRM2400WC (White)

Hi
Our fridge is creating a build up of ice on the back wall around the fan. Would you please advise the likely cause and best option for resolving the problem. The fridge is around 3 years old.
Regards Alan

Hi Alan, My Mums Westinghouse WRM2400WC White fridge had the same issue with the back wall icing up around the Fan area.I think their is nothing you can do about it, thats just the normal operation of this fridge. My Mums Westighouse WRM2400WC fridge only lasted just over 2 years and 2 months so you doing well getting past 2 years with your Westinghouse WRM2400WC fridge
