CL error with freezer

4 yrs old fridge , CL code with freezer no longer working, apparently quite a few others have similar problem. Told by Westinghouse its out of warranty and quoted its broken because "its working 24 hours a day". I'm sure it's my fault I leave the fridge on all the time, maybe for my future fridge I should only have it on 3 hours a day. Would not buy from Westinghouse again. Show details

Error Code FH

We are getting the code FH which seems to be a code for 'no water entering or no pressure' however our fridge doesn't have the water dispenser feature. Any suggestions?
Other then this it has been a great fridge! Show details

Never buying Westinghouse again

It seems like as many other reviewers have said here, these fridges only last 5-6 years. CL error has shown and we've just thrown out the whole freezer side worth of food. The top section had always been iced up since new as well and couldn't be used. Such a shame as our previous one lasted well over 15 years. Show details

Don't Last

After 5.5 years the centre partition was getting too hot to touch. Got Service out and they said a not uncommon problem with them. Would cost $1100 to fix - flush pipes replace compressor etc.
Units are not designed to last more than 5-6 years it appears. Poor Value. Show details

Awful - DO NOT BUY!!!

Will never buy a Westinghouse fridge again! Leaking black tar at the bottom of fridge. Had a technician come out and reported it as manufacturing defect. Can’t do anything to fix it. Call custom service won’t do anything to help outside of warranty and referred me to ACL.
I totally understand if a part needed replacement & outside of the warranty, I would be happy to pay for it but when it’s a manufacturing defect and you can’t fix the issue, then that’s where I’m really upset and have to now buy a new fridge without any compensation for a faulty product from factory!

Great fridge/freezer... except for the ice situation

Bought this about 8 or 9 months ago and have been quite happy with it. The temperature seems to be quite consistent throughout and food lasts well. The freezer is nice and cold and the temperature display on the outside is handy. I was quite excited about the ice set up, but it's very flimsy and, despite filling up with the supplied beaker, both broke when twisting to release ice cubes. It's not a deal breaker, as I went to Kmart and bought some silicone ice cube trays instead. It just annoys me when manufacturers skimp on basic stuff. Show details

Not very good - lots of design faults

I spent a few weeks searching for a replacement for the previous model fridge with the leaking tar. This new model is a real disappointment. It’s got good space however the in-door shelves no longer adjust, the ice maker is nothing short of a joke and the plastic door shelves are super thin and unlikely to put up with the rigours of kids. The inside shelves also lack the adjustability of the previous model. It’s clear they have taken cost out of the product.

Disappointing - Not freezing CL error code

Was a good fridge when I bought it, now everything defrosting in the freezer. It's quite obvious this is a common fault with a batch of these fridges as LOTS of other reviews online with the same problem, freezer not freezing, then CL error code. It's out of warranty so will probably just take it to the tip, shame Westinghouse. Old 20 year old fridge is still going as a beer fridge outside - obviously not a Westinghouse. Not happy that I bought a Westinghouse. Show details

Can the doors be removed on this model as we are shifting house and it and it is a bit wide for the door openings in the house (as handles can not be removed once fitted). Thank you for your info.

Hello. I have water/condensation on the floor outside my freezer door. Can anyone help to explain why this happens?

Details

At 520L this is the smaller Westinghouse fridge. If you’re keen on buying Westinghouse but require a fridge with more space, the 690L model is a viable option.

Features:

  • There are two fridges in this series that are the same except for the colour. One fridge is white, the other is a silver stainless-steel, which is reflected in a $100 price difference.
  • Multi-flow air delivery system ensures there aren’t any hidden spots in the fridge that are left unchilled
  • Eco-mode and ‘holiday energy-efficient mode’ both reduce the fridge’s energy consumption
  • Various shelves, trays, and crispers to keep different types of food organised
  • Two types of alarms: a door alarm that goes off if you leave it open, and a chill timer that alerts you once your drink has cooled to a suitable temperature

What reviewers liked about this fridge:

  • This fridge didn’t require an extensive amount of power, which resulted in many reviewers saving money that would’ve otherwise been spent on energy bills.
  • Temperature control was a recurring point of praise among reviewers. Many reported that it was easy to change the temperature, as all the different temperatures were presented clearly on a digital display.
  • Most people seemed content with the amount of space this fridge offers. However, for those prone to making an extraordinarily-large quantity of frozen meals, you might require a second freezer.
