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.

Trusted Name.Great Price. Crisp Veggiesm
from Lexington, NC, United States
You can't really appreciate an appliance until it stops working. My last refrigerator lasted 6 1/2 years. When it kicked the bucket, it went out with a bang. First it cried for help with an annoying humming noise. Then, like all of us after a certain age, it would wet the floor sporadically. I had no choice but to get a new one. I picked a Whirlpool with a top freezer. I wasn't looking for fancy but something g that works. It is however so much more. There are compartments and drawers that don't stick nor have to be jiggle to open. It's quiet and my food stays just the right temp. I guess you could say it's pretty cool. (Pun intended)
Cheap extra refrigerator

It's an extra refrigerator kept in the pantry. It makes lots of noise when it runs, and it seems to run most of the time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Roomy, holds a lot of food for the size, economical
Great and well worth the money, good price, nice to look at, roomy

This is a very good product for someone who needs/wants a basic model refrigerator. We have 5 in our family and the capacity is sufficient. Good product. I would recommend it.

bought this a few months ago when old one broke. Happy with this model. I like the room for milk cartons on the side.

bought this for the garage, it houses soda, water, extra veggies and Otter Pops for the neighborhood kids...not a single issue w/ icing in the freezer, it just plugs away, keeping all goodies super nice and cold. Thanks for this affordable and reliable machine!
