When handle comes off then what?

published

First the fan in the freezer stopped. Replaced under warranty. Now the fridge door handle has come off. The bottom clip has broken (black plastic piece fixed into door somehow) and it appears that it isn't a replaceable part without getting a new door. Fridge is only 3 years old. Our old Westinghouse fridge is 16, had to replace the interior light globe about a year ago and seals are showing their age. It was made in Australia not Thailand. On the plus side Electrolux have replaced the door even though the fridge is 12 months out of warranty. We still need to buy a new handle which is almost $200.

Purchased in for $1,100.

Terrible quality, puddles of water every morning, broken crsiper drawer

published

Very disappointed with the quality of this fridge. My parents' Westinghouse lasted over 20 years and was still going strong before replacement. We all know these are built to a budget now.

The main issue is the water accumulating underneath the bottom crisper. Very large puddles, not just drips. Must be dried and mopped every morning.
Another issue is the badly designed crisper drawer (not wide enough to even fit in side rails) A number of reviews on this site have already pointed this design flaw out.

Also, very noisy compressor, freezer constantly frosting....

It is only 3 months out of warranty, not happy at all. Have contacted Consumer Protection and a case has been lodged.

Worse brand ever

published

wtb5404sa Model

A year in I had a dead evap fan.
just out of warranty for 250 dollars later.
Now that evap fan is on constantly lately. I had cleared the frost of the evap coils.
I think possibly heater element or something related to it.

Worse model. Would never buy a westinghouse again.
You expect it to work more than a year to two years.

Purchased in for $1,100.

Continues to fail

published

4 year old fridge and the fridge continues to break down. I was lucky enough to take out an extended warranty however service turn around times results in 10-14 days with no fridge. Stay clear and purchase a different brand

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $950.

Unbelievable...

published

Yesterday my new Westinghouse fridge WTB5404SC arrived. Unbelievably the door is extremely hard to open. Whoooah, when I look back through ProductReviews, this problem still continues today, even after similar complaints 5 years ago !

Disaster

published

18 months in the fridge and freezer failed, lost food. The best Westinghouse can do is a service call in 3 weeks (and that's an emergency call!). Stay clear of westinghouse products - poor quality, poor service.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $1,049.

Thanks, finally got a call out and the fridge was fixed, we also got $200 to cover the food that was ruined (take photos of your ruined food), so thanks Electrolux for coming through in the end

Still a great brand

published

Purchased November 2019. Works well with many good features, negatives being the slide-out crisper which doggedly refuses to slide straight out and gets jammed, creating much cursing on most occasions, whilst the entire fridge had a tendency to skip over the floor after opening and shutting the doors when first installed. It's stopped doing that now thankfully. Despite these issues I would recommend it.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $1,340.

Had to contact Electrolux customer service today re ice cube tray that cacked itself. If every company had a customer service centre as helpful, courteous, and obliging, the world of consumers would be a much better place. Absolutely brilliant!

Fridge not cooling and freezer working tooo much

published

Freezer working too much but refrigerator not cooling. Was making a loud noise. I turned it off for a few hours and put back on. Purchased 3 years ago so warranty out. Not at all happy with Westinghouse products as Electrolux washing machine purchased at same time has problems too. Previous fridge lasted 16 years. Shame on Westinghouse very poor quality!!!!

I love this fridge/freezer

published

Perfect size fridge and freezer for my family. A bonus with this fridge is it has a quick freeze option on the outside and takes a few hours to make ice.

Worked OK until 2 years and 5 months old. Then died.

published

This fridge worked OK for the time we have had it with the usual caveat about the crisper drawer that drives most people who owns nuts. Then at 2 years 5 months old the compressor has died. After I've dealt with an essentially useless 3rd party extended warranty provider I'm making a complaint to the ACCC/Consumer Affairs on the basis that a fridge should have an expected life of greater than this pathetic period of time.

Crisper needs re-designing

published

I bought this fridge in 2016. It works perfectly except for the crisper. It does not remain on the track and becomes most frustrating to pull out and push back. A serviceman advised that it is a design fault, he regularly replaces them and cannot guarantee that it won't happen again. It was replaced under warranty a yr ago and now has the same problem. Westinghouse is about to replace the WHOLE fridge under warranty. What a waste for the sake of such a basic function in a fridge. Trouble is.. what brand to choose?

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $1,255.

Love it, very quiet and spacious

published

Easy to clean, non spill shelving, interchangeable shelving and a great veggie draw which keeps produce very fresh. Spacious freezer and very quiet. Has an ice tray which you turn to fill a tray which is handy for summer. Has a draw in the fridge which is great for the cheese and other dairy. Can’t fault this fridge

Westinghouse Winner

published

The first fridge that I have owned that is genuinely easy to clean. The shelves are simple to remove for cleaning and there are no silly nooks and crannies for spills to get lodged in. Fruit and vegetables stay fresh and crisp, and frozen foods do nor develop frost burn. The fridge is quiet when running and power consumption is reasonable

Bad design cheap materials

published

Having just finished a fight with Westinghouse re a stainless steel fridge that rusted they proved that after sales service doesn't exist and they could care after blaming everything except the standard of the material. Consumer affairs managed to get us a small discount on a new fridge and we bought the above quickly as they only gave us 30 days to take up their miserable offer. We discovered after purchase the crisper drawer is not on rollers but gets dragged across a bumpy plastic track. Needless to say a serviceman said it was a design fault and couldn't be fixed. BUY A WESTINGHOUSE PRODUCT AT YOUR OWN RISK, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
