We purchased this Westinghouse fridge as our family is expanding and we were running out of space. Inside this is massive, both fridge and freezer, which is what drew our attention! Lighting is excellent and the open alarm is handy for when the children forget to shut the door. The compressor can be a little loud at times but overall it's a quality unit that I expect to last us years.
Hard to fix
When running it works great. However there were a few faults to this westinghouse fridge. First of all the ice would get blocked and will not allow water to pass through (this was any easy fix by emptying the ice tray. I started having a few faults with this fridge, internally. Something to do with its motor or power. Had an electrician/repairman come to look at it and said that he could fix it, but the bad thing about westinghouses are that they are cheap and hard to fix and major problems could leave you paying more than what you bought it for.
Pretty good all round fridge freezer. Ice and water dispenser is it’s achilles heel.
We've had this fridge for over 4 years and it has been pretty good in terms of most things. It keeps consistent temp and is easy to change (eco or holiday mode). Filtered water on tap is great. Ice is fantastic although sometimes unit can get blocked if not used for a little while or crushed ice gets jumbled. Simple to tip out the box and start again. One major problem is the water and ice mechanisms. Our water stopped working after 3 years (solenoid failed). I fixed it easily enough for around $150, but the bigger issue is the ice dispenser.... It has stopped working altogether and seems to be a much more costly fix. We love having the water and ice features , but the electronics need to be better quality (longer lasting) 3 years is pretty ridiculous when everything else on the fridge is fine. It is easy to clean and looks great.

Questions & Answers
I can’t extinguish the replace filter message despite following instruction in manual - we have replaced the filter
I have replaced the water filter, but have been unable to remove the "replace water filter" light on the door. I have tried holding the 'Ice maker' pad for 3 seconds as noted in the user manual.
