We needed a second refrigerator, and this one seemed to fit the bill...plenty of freezer and fresh food spaces. Unfortunately the first one delivered had a flaw in the molding which prevented a good seal from forming, so we had lots of problems with fresh food freezing. Our replacement is fantastic!

We bought this refrigerator to replace a 17 year old Whirlpool of the same size that died in August of 2011. Quality of all the sliding drawers is very poor. The full width pantry drawer does not stay on its tracks and is made of very cheap plastic. Constantly falls off the tracks, basically useless. There is only one adjustment for temperature, which is suppose to control the freezer and the refrigerator compartments at the same time. Problem is that if you want the ice-cream to be frozen you end up freezing the food in the refrigerator compartment. Our old fridge could hold two one gallon jugs n the door, this one can't. Very disappointed in the quality and features.

              Comments about Whirlpool Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:

              My old side-by-side refrigerator finally gave up, and as I live 90 miles from the appliance store, I was relieved to find this bargain. I really like the humidity controlled crispers. They really do keep my vegetables fresher, for longer. I would have given it 5 stars, if not for the condensation that appears on the glass shelves. I called the store to ask why this is happening, and wouldn't you know it..it is due to "environmentally friendly" regulations. The "Freon" that used to be in fridges it no longer allowed. Phooey! I look forward to saving up the funds for a bigger side-by-side with ice/water dispenser.

                                      Very pleased with it. Purchased 6 weeks ago. It looks nice, not bulky at all.
                                      I wasn't looking for all the bells and whistles of other models
                                      I don't mind filling an ice tray myself.

                                                  I just purchased this frig. I bought it for the smooth front finish and width. After receiving it yesterday, I was very disappointed to see that the freezer compartment has no light. Every frig I have ever owned has had one and I never thought to look for that. It was not on diplay at the dealer where purchased and I missed reading that in specs. It cheapens the entire appliance

                                                        Purchased about a month ago and have not had any issues so far. The extra rack in the freezer is a nice addition to allow for more storage space in the freezer.
