Good refrigerator but the ice maker is problematic
from Knoxville, TN, United States
Comments about Frigidaire Gallery 22.2 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator - Smudge-Proof SS w/Gray Sides:
For the most part I like this refrigerator. It looks and functions good. Though some of the drawers are hard to slide in and out sometimes. I think if I can get some food safe plastic lubricant it will be a lot better. However, I'm really sore about the ice maker. It has issues in its design that are frustrating. It creates long, quarter circle shaped ice cubes and I think this is the root of the problem. First of all, they actually seem too long to easily fit down the chute when being dispensed whole, not crushed. I like whole ice, not crushed. I've had them jam up several times. A couple of times a jam occurred that held the paddle in the on position so ice piles up inside while I frantically try to un-jam it. This usually ends up with cubes all over the floor. Then I have to dig them out of the chute which causes more cubes to scatter about. I have ended up with a couple full glasses worth of melting ice everywhere in the kitchen and inside the freezer a few times since I took delivery of this fridge at the end of June. When the dispenser is actually not jamming, it dispenses ice very erratically. It'll run and run and run with only small chips of ice then sudden it all pours out in a rush, over filling my glass or water bottle. And here we go again with ice scattering across the floor. It has almost become comedic. Overall, I like the refrigerator. It has a nice appearance that compliments my kitchen. But the ice maker issues have certainly made me unhappy and knocked off a couple of stars. And it made it so that I would not recommend this fridge in any way. Unless you only like crushed ice. Maybe if it had a different shaped cube, like the Frigidaire that is at my workplace, it would not have so many problems. As it is, disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love my refrigerator. Bought it for myself as a gift.

I have had for 3 months and already had to have service on the ice maker. The chill drawer freezes everything in the back and I can't figure out how to change that. Otherwise, it's a fine side by side basic fridge. Except for the inconvenience of the ice maker breaking it was not s no deal and was fixed quickly and has worked since. Things happen. I am one of the minority of people who happen to like side by side. It's a perfectly good side by side with as much space as possible.

I have never had a brand new refrigerator and this one is just wonderful. The outside finish stays clean and looks so new all the time. The shelves are big and roomy and I love the one gallon storage on the doors. We have never had so much room before and really love the drawers also. The water and ice feature is my husbands favorite thing. You have to get the hang of the ice feature to not have it spit out ice after you move the glass, but once you do, it works just fine. Looks just like the photo on here.

By far, this is the most horrible appliance I have ever purchased. We previously had two frigidaire side by sides and had no problems with either, in fact the first of the two lasted 27 yrs. and was still in operation when we moved 12 yrs. ago. The second unit had a life span of only hallf the first did but we thought we would try a third unit. We are living a NIGHTMARE with this new unit that we purchased August 3, 2016.
