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.

This is a tool that you can.t do with out. It is like electric current you don,t miss it until it goes out.

I have had this unit for a month and it does everything I need it to do. I have to keep my insulin at a certain temperature level and this refrigerator does this perfectly. Thanks Whirlpool.

An excellent size for a small family and fits into my kitchen very well
Good basic refrigerator.
from Bean Station, TN, United States
I bought this refrigerator several weeks ago when my fancy high tech refrigerator wouldn't cool. It will make a good backup unit for extra frozen foods, pop etc. The pull out bottom drawers could be a little thicker plastic but overall it is a good value with no frills, motherboards to go bad.
Perfect small refrigerator
from Point Blank, TX, United States
We bought this frig for our lakehouse. Didn't need anything too big or expensive. Very solid frig.
Small size fits perfectly in garage
from Sonora, CA, United States
We were looking for a small unit to replace a larger one in our garage that was going bad. This is the perfect size and should help lower the electric bills. It gets over 100 degrees here in the summer. The more energy efficient, the better.

I bought this in September, very nice, quite, lots of freezer space, just wish it had a light, but I can live with that.
