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.

Bad Fridge


from Marietta, GA, United States

I have been completely dissatisfied with this refrigerator. The layout of the interior is less than satisfactory and I have had multiple system failures. Thank goodness I got the extended service contract Because I have used it many many times. The icemaker is failed twice now, the entire computer went out in the unit stopped cooling over Thanksgiving, the water dispenser delet because I have used it many many times. The icemaker is failed twice now, the entire computer went out in the unit stopped cooling over Thanksgiving, the water dispenser leaked and had to be repaired and the fan in the freezer portion of the icemaker began making noise constantly and had to be repaired. Do not buy this refrigerator or any other Electrolux product. We had a dishwasher as well that we finally had to replace in the refrigerator is heading in the same direction.


I am 78 years old and this is worst refrigerator


from LaGrange, Georgia, United States

Had this 4 years and nothing but problems and repair bills. Spent as much on repairs as i did this refrigerator. Big waste of money




from Undisclosed

Very disappointed with my refrigerator. Always has issues. Needs to be repaired often . Only two years old. Loved the look of it, but it just doesn't work., so the design I loved is obsolete,so disappointed


New Appliance


from Undisclosed

Love the Refrigerator, very reliable, just felt air filter life was too short.


Stay away from the Fridge


from Undisclosed

The fridge has a nice design but after multiple repiars to the ice maker. I woud not recommend it to anyone unless you like wasting hard earned money.


Must buy a another ice maker


from Undisclosed

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.


Terrible ice maker


from Undisclosed

We have only had this frig for a little over 2 years. We had had many problems and service calls with the ice maker. It was working OK for a little while & now it had stopped making ice again. I would NEVER buy this frig again.

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


from Undisclosed

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!


from Undisclosed

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.
