This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

I am pleased thus far with the refrigerator. It is fit for purpose. I like the clear plastic shelving and drawers. The visual serves as an easy reminder as to what is in the refrigerator, and what is not and needs to be restocked. Planning to many many years of reliable service just like the previous one.
Just right size for one

I replaced my 42 year old unit with this Whirlpool.....it fit in my space perfectly. A little louder than my old unit....have only had for 1 month.
The perfect fridge
from Bolinas, CA, United States
I bought this fridge as backup to my bigger fridge. It has to live outdoors in a shed and is used for the overflow for when I have extra food to prepare and store below 40â€¢ This fridge appears to swallow up much more food than capacity stated. Excellent buy
easy to clean

We use this as a second refrigerator for storing party and extra drinks
from Sioux Falls, SD, United States
Bought 2, one for me and one for one of my tenants. There have been zero problems and have owned them for 3+ months.
Just what I needed
I have a small cottage with a small kitchen. I looked 3 different big department chain stores and finally found this refrigerator. Has all the necessary compartments and is smart looking both inside and out.

Great second fridge
from Upstate NY
We needed a new 2nd fridge in the house, so we quickly purchased this one. We are very pleased with the size - small on the outside but big on the inside - due to well designed door shelves.

Needs to be designed better. Too much wasted space.
