Really disappointed

published

Fridge is only just over 3 years old and the protruding plastic clips that you attach the shelves to on the door has completely snapped off. I have never ever owned a fridge that has ever had this issue. To repair the fridge the entire fridge door needs to be replaced for around $500. Not sure if I will just purchase a new fridge from another company rather than replace the door, as after reading everyones issues I am concerned that something else may go.
This is my only complaint about this fridge otherwise I have been very happy.

Purchased in at The Good Guys.

Fantastic Fridge

published

I was looking for a very long time for a fridge to suit the fridge space I have (larger than average). I did not want one that required plumbing and this was the best option. Although it does not have bells and whistles it is a very spacious fridge (freezer a bit smaller which is great). The only minor issues I have with it is the ice tray sits low and the bottom storage in the fridge door is not very accessible (hidden by the upper compartment)

Purchased in at Winning Appliances for $1,695.

Plastic around glass shelves cracked within a year

published

When we bought the fridge, we were told they were no longer Australian made but we trusted the brand anyway. The fridge is working fine but very disappointed to find the plastics used are poor quality.

The plastic trim around the shelves in the freezer & fridge cracked. These are the shelves right above the drawers/crisper so they did not have anything sitting directly on them. Was told no one had any problems with them and replacements are $55 each + freight.

Not very happy

published

Purchased less than 5 months ago, went bad Friday 3/8/18 could not get any help untill Monday 3/9/18.
Have to go through Eastern States to get them to notify WA technician coming Tuesday 4/9/18. problem freezer stops and CL comes in dialogue box, nothing covers it in the instruction booklet very bad, as do not know whether to continue using fridge part. Turned it all off hoping computer would rectify itself, no good still a problem. Does not do Westinghouse reputation any good, losing a lot of frozen product and having to wait out W/end before any type of action, hope it works and get some satisfaction.

stylish excellent well presented fridge/freezer

published

Even though we have only recently purchased this item, we are amazed at the quietness and the quality of the components through out this fridge/freezer. Total delighted and amazed at the temperature control, for the first time for a long time our fridge is cold and freezer truly freezes the food inside it. always had Westinghouse and our previous freezer we have had for 43 years and it is still working.

AMAZING AFTER SALE SERVICE

published

I bought a Westinghouse 700L side by side fridge 5 years ago. It leaked black tar from middle front bar. Westinghouse have now discontinued that fridge and a repair was attempted. As it didn’t resolve Westinghouse replaced our fridge, with a very reasonable contribution from us, and we now have this beauty with a 5 year warranty. BEST AFTER SALE SERVICE EVER WESTINGHOUSE. You contacted me as soon as you read the original review and have exceeded our expectations. Thank you

We had been looking for a new fridge for some time when this guy came on special at the Good Guys. We were looking for a big fridge with a large freezer as we could stock up on groceries and didn't have to shop every day. This is the ideal purchase. With enough fridge and freezer room this will solve your every day needs. Easy to clean and has enough shelves for everything. Westinghouse is a great make and we have had no problems with them. Would recommend.

Hi Mick, I believe that they just clip on pushing down, and its push up to take them back off, but I'd check via any instructions you can find on the web or youtube

Westinghouse 690L Side by Side WSE6900

Details

At 690L this is the larger Westinghouse fridge. For another Westinghouse option that is more compact and with less storage space, consider the Westinghouse 620 instead.

Features:

  • Like other Westinghouse side by side fridges, there are two in this series: one white and the other a silver stainless-steel
  • Multi-flow air delivery system is designed to provide an even airflow throughout all the fridges compartments.
  • Eco-mode and ‘holiday energy efficient mode’ both aim to reduce the amount of energy the fridge consumes
  • In order to keep the food organised, there are various shelves, trays, and crispers
  • 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 thought about this fridge:

  • Overall, this 690L Westinghouse fridge isn’t as highly reviewed as the smaller 620L model. Additionally, this fridge is also around $1000 more expensive.
  • Less flattering reviews were based around claims that some reviewers had experienced issues with the fridge breaking down
  • The LED lights in the fridge assisted with visibility when surroundings were dark. Everything was clear to see.
  • Reviewers thought the stainless-steel finish of the silver fridge made cleaning easy, as most of the time cleaning just involved giving the outside a quick wipe down.
  • Cleaning the inside was equally as simple, as stains were easy to rub off the glass shelves.
