Would never buy this product again
from New York, NY
Comments about Avanti 7.4 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator - White:
I bought this product because it was a really good deal price-wise, but I now understand what they mean when they say "you get what you pay for".It completely stopped working after just 2 years. It would have been just as expensive to have it repaired as it would to buy a new refrigerator.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Casual Cook
I have a teeny "kitchen" in a good-sized apt. Truly, it's like a walk-in closet. The space I have for a fridge is 22" I had a Welbilt 22" fridge for over 20 yrs and it was amazing! It was automatic defrost and was fabulous. Sadly, it died. Welbilt is no longer and I couldn't find anything anywhere that would fit except this Avanti, so I had no choice. I didn't want to go back to the dark ages to manual defrost, but that not's the biggest issue. Ice forms on back of fridge (a review of same fridge at another store says same). Also, food that's placed on rear of shelves FREEZES. That same review said the same. The manual says that you might notice some freezing water on back wall of fridge but when compressor goes off, that will melt and drip down and out through hole in bottom of fridge. I've had this since Feb. and that hasn't happened! Since this is my only option, I'm really stuck and because food at the back of the shelves freeze, it certainly doesn't hold enough food, specially for winter months when I like to stock up. I paid for 5 years' warranty but I hesitate to return this for another since I fear thisproblem is inherit in the unit. My old fridge was 4" taller and had a shelve on the freezer door as well. Can't believe in this day and age that someone can't make a decent 22" frost-free fridge. This wouldn't be THAT bad if it weren't for the ice issue. I lowered the thermostat, but then my water wasn't as cold and I was worried about the food not being cold enough. I'm really in a bind since this is my only source of refrigeration and I can't find anything else that will fit. I would only recommend this if you are stuck because of spatial issues. With the issues this unit has, it makes no sense as a 2nd fridge.

I just received this refrigerator and am very disappointed.This was supposed to be energy efficient and consuming 251KWT. But the packaging that came with the refrigerator says 345 instead of what the web site suggests.Within 12 hrs. of use there is a 14 inch frost inside the refrigerator! But I bought this because it said it defrosts on its own!There is water coming from the bottom of the refrigerator also! Maybe the one I received was defective. But it seemed brand new!

Good buy for the purpose. Went into the space in the travel trailer like it was built for it. Looks good and works fine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I Love This Company
from Maryville, Tennessee
I'm creating a kitchenette for a basement apartment that was formerly a garage. Appropriate space for a kitchen is extremely limited. I live alone, so instead of "stocking up" as I used to do when I cooked for a family, I stop at the store once a week and this refrigerator has plenty of room for everything I need.
Somewhere between the company and my place, it appears the refrigerator was dropped, leaving a dent in the door, despite the fact that it was packaged very well. Appearance only was affected. When I informed the company by email, they immediately offered me my choice of a replacement or a reasonable damage refund. What more could I have asked of them?
