    This is a great unit it has a great ice maker (removable) ,the doors close every time, the ice maker has not quit making ice, ice does not freeze around the freezer door,the french door are aligned properly,the ice maker does not freeze a large piece of ice in the bottom of the ice tray and the drawers close properly. The problems mentioned are the same problems we have had with the ( 4 REFRIGERATORS OF THIS MODEL WE HAVE HAD HAD IN THE LAST 3 YEARS) Electrolux came out with a second generation model in MARCH OF 2011 WITH A REMOVABLE ICE MAKER.They replace our refrigerator in december with the second GENERATION MODEL. The second generation serial numbers start out with A113 or higher. This new model has lived up the Electrolux product reputation of being top of the line.

    We really like the appearance of this refrigerator, both inside and out. The Fresh Food drawer is a very nice feature, particularly given how deep it is and how easily it rolls out to access everything in the drawer. No more hidden veggies in the back. The freezer design is excellent, probably the best design of any of the drawer style freezers. The ice maker, however, is a dud. We just had our second ice maker go out, with each one lasting about 3 - 4 weeks. The first repair resulted in an entirely new refrigerator, with the ice maker lasting about 4 weeks. Another visit from the tech scheduled for this week. After reading other reviews of this unit, the ice maker issue is a recurring problem. Seems a long term fix is needed from Electrolux.

    Must buy a another ice maker

    By eric

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    The unit is well laid out and very quiet. We really Like the style and features. The only downside to this unit is the Icemaker and water dispenser. It has never produced enough ice ...A few cubes a day and the water dispensed is always WARM. You get a little ice but the water is so warm it melts the ice. Very poor design.

    If only it worked for more than weeks at a time.

    By DLB

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    We LOVED our Electrolux refrigerator, briefly, when it worked. That lasted about 3-4 months,a nd it's been down hill ever since. So far we've had the ice maker repaired or replaced THREE TIMES in less than two years. Now the freezer will maintain temperature, but not the fridge. Everything in the fridge is now going bad, because it's been at 60 degrees for four days now. The repair place, of course, never has the parts, so you wait a couple days for them to get a technician out, then wait a couple more days for parts, then throw in a weekend. If it worked for more than a month or two at a time, it would be better. But, this has been the single least reliable, most frustrating appliance we have EVER owned. I would never buy Electrolux again, not even on a dare.

    OKay but!

    By Tom

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Beautiful frig, great features, one design flaw. The water and ice station has a tendancy to leak and drips into what you would think would be some type of basin, but no, it leaks right onto the base of the water station. Why does it leak, because ice sometimes gets caught in the ice shoot and sits there and melts. Also the mechanism to operate the water station is very sensitive and it is hard to control the ice flow. It is also made of cheap plastic which after two months in service is totally scratched and looks terrible. Stainless steel or some type of metal should replace the scratched, inexspensive plastic. How can I get this eyesore resolved? For the price a little better design and quality could have gone into water/ice system. I am not happy with this important and very visible feature.

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Read all the reviews. Must agree this is a well designed machine, but nothing but problems with the ice maker. It has worked all of two months of the 12 months we have had it. Using my old one in the garage for ice. The freezer layout is wonderful. No more old missing freezer burned bags. Adjustable shelves are amazing.

    DO NOT GET

    By cmh

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Do not get this refrigerator. Have had to replace the board 3 times. The ice cube mold once and now the motor for the ice maker. I will admit the refrigerator looks nice. But I would rather it function properly.

    Lots of problems

    By Richard

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electrolux Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Replaced all of our kitchen appliances with Electrolux. Oven, dishwasher, cook top and pop-up vent/exhaust work just fine, but the refrigerator (most expensive of the bunch) has been a major disappointment. Within just these first few months, the appliance repairman has been here about 5 times, replacing various parts on the fridge. The icemaker seems to be the most troublesome issue, as it has been completely replaced, and still doesn't work.
