Nice looking fridge with good use of space
Like another reviewer I got this fridge by Government Appliance Replacement Offer from the Goodguys when my other one died. It is a well built fridge with good freezer space. However, I have had concerns that the freezer is not getting cold enough and the controls (which are separate on this model for fridge and freezer--a good inclusion) are having to be set fairly high. I'm concerned that if this is necessary in winter, will it be cold enough in Summer? I'll be watching this carefully over the next few months. Otherwise a well built, bri...ghtly lit small fridge with some nice features. Just one further point to make, it should be noted that the controls (one for fridge and one for the freezer) work in opposite directions to each other. On one high is to the right, on the other, high is to the left!
Got it recently for only $286 by Govt Appliance Replacement Offer from The Good Guys. So far working fine and I look forward to 7 years use. My old fridge which works well, will be inspected and used again, I just wanted to update the Energy rating from 2.5 to 3.5. Early days, will report back in 6 months with more details how it's going, and maybe new rating, but NICE FRIDGE
Great quality fridge
The fridge itself does the job. It was the first fridge I bought from Appliances Online, and is a decent size for 1 person. For 2, it can get a little crowded if you're not sharing meals (which I am not with my housemate).
The door is quite light though which makes me worry about the construction, but overall it's pretty good quality.
Appliances online were very good, delivering was easy and installing was free.
Love Westinghouse fridges
My last one was 320L (still working fine) and then I recently bought this small one. I like these fridges because of their big freezers compared to overall size. It looks great too. I had some issues with fridge not cooling enough initially and I had to throw away some food. But it seems to be working fine now. It's great for 1-2 persons household. And it's quiet!

Good fridge... not outstanding
The size of the fridge fits my apartment quite well. The basic function like cooling is great. Sometimes when the motor (freezer) moves it has some noise. It is not too bad but you can still hear the noise. The energy rating is good too so I think it's a good choice.
Questions & Answers
On nearly all retail sites that sell the Westinghouse 230L Top Mount Fridge WTB2300WG list the height of this fridge as 1440mm yet on the official Westinghouse site the height is listed as 1405mm. Which one is correct? I have a strict height limit for where the fridge is to be located. Thank you.
Mine is exactly 1405 mm, as shown at the GOVT page on appliances https://appliance.environment.nsw.gov.au/products Hope this helps. of course you can always drop into a store and measure one. That height is the front only from floor to the top. side and back is approx 1387 mm. It's been working really good too
The actual fridge is 1405 but the hinge for the door sticks up the other 35mm. This extra height is located to the front of the fridge. It was touch and go when I had my fridge delivered and I was worried it wouldn't fit under overhead kitchen doors. If I didn't fit I would have had to have the fridge sticking out a bit rather than being pushed all the way in. Luckily it just made it with the hinge's extra 35mm and it was so close that no adjustment of the levelling feet was possible. I would advise going to a store that has one on display and measuring the fridge including the door hinge at the front to see if it will fit in your space.
