This is the smallest full size refrigerator available, at 14.8 cu ft. I bought one to replace my 21 year old 12 cu ft Frigidaire, this being the only model that would fit under my built in cabinets. I thought it would be a little quieter, as well as larger. But no! The manual specifically says, ââRigid foam insulation is very energy efficient, but is not a sound insulator â¦ the compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound.â I rate that hum as about an A below middle C, right in our normal voice range, therefore making it extremely hard to hear the TV when the compressor is running. My old Frigidaire had a low pitched hum which altho loud, did not interfere with hearing the TV. Now who is going to buy a very small refrigerator? Certainly not a well-to-do person in a large house, where the kitchen is separated from the living room by a dining room, halls, etc. No, generally a small refrigerator is going into a small house. My kitchen, dining, and living space are all in one 11.5x23 foot room, and my Danish recliner is exactly 3 feet from the refrigerator. Every time the compressor comes on, I have to turn up the TV, and when it turns off, I return to normal volume. This is disgracefully bad planning on the part of Frigidaire. Which would you rather have â a larger and noisier refrigerator, or a smaller and quieter one?
On top of this, once the delivery men install the refrigerator, one naturally looks at the literature and wants to send in the warranty card, which requires the serial number. My old refrigerator had the serial number conveniently inside the refrigerator on the right hand wall. This new refrigerator has the serial number on the back, so now it must be pulled out away from the wall to read the number. (The literature does not contain the serial number.)
You will also note that every photo of Frigidaires on the internet is so washed out that you canât see them. A company that has so little concern for the real needs of its customers does not deserve to remain in business.

This fridge is perfect for our needs as a couple who does cook but do not store a lot of perishable items. The size fits our tight space. It is a bit loud, but for us, the noise is not an issue as it is located away from our tv/living space. I do wish the door storage was a bit more flexible, but for a small fridge, it is sturdy and functional. For the price, and the great delivery & install, it is a real value.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mark So far so good!
As my opening statement says! I am very happy with the unit thus far! It keeps food very cool, and no problems with the defrost cycle!

Sounds like the microwave is running all the time. And it does run a lot, I don't know if that is normal. Seems like it would use more juice running a lot. But overall, I'm happy with it.
