I purchased my refrig Dec. 2010 and loved it. All aspects, space, style etc., except for the ice maker. It made ice when it felt like it..It finally quit in June 2011. The ice maker unit was replaced with an upgrade model. That new maker also started doing the same thng and by Nov. 2011 it to stopped making ice. But, I still love my refrig... Working with Electrolux and having the ice maker serviced 4 times I was finally given a new refrig. that was delivered yesterday (3/12/2012). The ice maker has been redesigned and the refrig is exactaly like my old one. I got up this morning and had ice for the first time in 4 months... Love it!!!! Great service and cooperation from Electrolux.

We like the space and layout. We love the Stainless finish which is much more resistant to finger prints than any other manufacturer. Cooling system seems fine and possibly a very good design. Problems: We bought new but after install we discovered the right door hinge was bowed - easy warranty replacement but bending that hinge would have taken a lot of force - it should be better protected in transit. Don't like the wasteful and eco-unfriendly PCV water filter - Will order a bypass but that should have come with the fridge (or at least a sign for how to order should have been placed over the filter). We have the new and improved ice maker but we did have one instance where ice was lumping together and would not move down the dispenser screw (we have only had the fridge for 30 days - maybe door was ajar and some ice partly melted but I would have expected an alarm). Showroom models all have a magnet on the top freezer tray that pulls the top tray along when the freezer door is open - nice feature but does not appear to be on our new, high end, expensive, "pro-line" fridge... Water dispenser tube is forward of ice dispenser and way in front of the activating lever - this is fine unless you have a small mouth glass. If you are unprepared and push the glass against the lever, you water your hand. Not terrible and you can compensate by placing your fingers between the glass and lever but it is a learning experience... Lots of opportunity for splashes of water going on the tray below the water and ice dispenser - other fridges we have owned have a grate and tray system so any splash simply evaporates - seems like a trivial design consideration. Over all, we would consider buying this model again for the type of stainless steel, the interior space and the cooling mechanism and we hope the ice dispenser problem was a fluke but we are disappointed at all of the human engineering misses which could have been easily avoided.

Unreliable and poor quality
Comments about Frigidaire FPHB2899 Stainless Steel 27.8 Cu. Ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
I won't buy another Frigidaire Professional 28 Cu Ft rench Door Refrigerator. The shelves are cheaply built and break easily. The icemaker has a history of freezing over requiring a kit to repair.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love it, lots of room for everything
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
We have been very pleased with our Frigidaire refrigerator. This is the third Frigidaire we have owned and have been very pleased with the quality and customer service. We had issues with the ice maker in our second unit but the company replaced the entire refrigerator and the replacement has been perfect.
We love the look and space of the Frigidaire Professional refrigerator. There are some issues with condensation collecting on the top of the freezer door. It needs to be wiped dry often & I'm afraid it will eventually deteriorate the seal or collect mold in the seal. After about 9 months, we had issues w/ the ice maker which was fixed under warranty but apparently it is a common occurrence. I do like that the ice receptor can be removed to fill coolers. It really is fingerprint-free- easy to keep clean both inside & outside.
apparently mine is damaged....have had nothing but problems and four repair orders....last one says irreparable, so we'll see if Frigidaire is honorable.

I read through the reviews and it seems that I am having the same issues as the other reviewers. I bought the fridge in Feb 2012. So, far the gaskets for the ice maker have been replaced. The temperature sensor has been replaced. The mother board has been replaced. Still, the ice maker fails and floods the compartment. The latest development has been the fan is loud and slmosting grinding. Then the ice make did it again, flooded the compartment (water dispenser) and the kitchen floor. Get the extended warranty! I am dealing with my 6th repair.
Great fridge, bad icemaker
By Michael M
Bought the whole series when remodeling the kitchen - microwave, gas stove, fridge and dishwasher. THe fridge is great, looks nice, doesn't show fngerprints much at all. THe only problem is the icemaker. It's been repaired once already and is on the fritz again. The 1st issue was no ice at all, this time it's stuck on crushed and we can't get cubed ince through the door.
Had a problem with the ice maker. Had to have it replaced on a brand new fridge.
Greatest Fridge Ever!
After suffering through a summer with 30 days of temperatures over 100 degrees and a refrigerator whose ice maker would never make ice - getting this new Frigidaire refrigerator was amazing. It makes ice like a dream and the adjustable shelves make our life so much easier. There is room for everything and more, the shelves slide out for easy loading and having ice and water always within reach is a dream come true!
Good size, nice features, nice looking
We're generally very happy with our fridge now that some manufacturing kinks have been fixed. The low-smudge finish looks great. It's a good size. Ice and water dispenser works well. Size and organization are good. There were some problems early on; there was a water hose connecting the top and bottom parts of the unit which was not connected well, so we had a water leak. Also, the condensation tube which was taped (taped? Really, Frigidaire?) to the bottom got loose and rattled loudly. Once fixed, there have been no problems.
