Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YorYor Good value in a basic refrigerator
I've been using this fridge for about four months so far without any problems. Not a lot of frills, but works fine. Energy usage is good, it's not too noisy, plenty cool at middle settings, which are easy to adjust if needed. I wish the freezer were a little bigger and the fridge compartment could be a little smaller in return. Minor drawbacks: with any top-freezer design, there is no light, and to be able to pack food in, it can be hard to see and reach things and you might have to move things around to find what you need. Also, the rack in my freezer bent a little, sagging from the weight put on it. The plastic handles, while sturdy enough, are pretty basic from a style standpoint. Shop around for sales/coupons/cash back links, etc. I got mine for a net of around $580 delivered (including tax) after factoring in a 5% click-thru.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zyyoll Review of 20.53 cu ft Top Freezer model # FFHT2117LW7
This is a larger than average no frills refrigerator-freezer. We added an ice maker which increased the cost by $50, plus $20 to connect it to existing water line. It replaced an 21 year-old unit which was working well but the gaskets were worn and the cost of new gaskets was $160 (for parts). The main reason for selecting this unit was it was ample size for us (older couple) and Consumer Reports said it was quieter than average. We can confirm that it runs as quiet or quieter than the unit we replaced. We have had it in operation for 11 days. The refrige cools to 4 degrees C which is optimal. The freezer keeps food very well. We use the ice cream test for the freezer. We had to keep it to the center position or else the ice cream was too hard to scoop. Do not expect a fancy interior. The bins for fruit and vegetables are adequate. There is a cheese drawer we also use for deli meats. All in all it is a good value in a cost conscious household. We like it.

This is about the coldest refrigerator I've ever owned and that is at the NORMAL setting. I'm happy with this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Nice fridge for the money
We are using this as a secondary fridge in the basement, and it is perfectly satisfactory. I was interested to observe that although it is about the same capacity as the fridge it replaced, it is differently proportioned. This refrigerator is taller, narrower and deeper. I happen to like this one better, because the interior shelves can accommodate more tall items.
We took advantage of the free delivery, and that was well coordinated, with timely delivery and no surprises. The unit arrived with some minor cosmetic blemishes, but with one phone call, Home Depot gave us a price adjustment that was very fair.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Thought it was great til the shelf fell down!
We were quite happy with our three month old Frigidare Model # FFHT2117LWF until this morning. I heard a horrendous crash in the basement and went down to see what had fallen. I opened the refrigerator door and a bag of apples tumbled out. The middle shelf was askew and a bowl of applesauce was lodged between the bottom of the refrigerator and the door pocket - fortunately the cover had not come off. I tried to put the shelf back together a couple of times, but couldn’t figure it out. I was in the middle of a kitchen chore upstairs, so I left the shelf to my husband to fix when he came home. It took him an hour to figure it out. He called customer service and they are sending a replacement shelf, but I believe the design is faulty. I wouldn’t trust the shelf with anything substantial, say a leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Very disappointed.

This is a good refrigerator. It is made to last for a long time. If you are looking for a simple and durable refrigerator, this is the one. I purchased this to replace my old GE which lasted more than 16 years until it went into a misery mode. I kept it in the GARAGE for all that time to store extra grocery and beverage. I'm hoping that this refrigerator will do the same. I will come back and update the review in 5 years to see where it stands. Remember, the garage kept refrigerators last longer than the ones that are kept in the house due to minimal abusive usage by the kids.

Runs fairly quietly and keeps everything nice and cold. Door is sealed very tight, have to give it a tug to open it. Overall very happy with it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Flor Very disappointed
I bought this refrigerator a few months ago to replace my old one. My husband insisted in "trying" this one. It looked nice and bigger. Once we had it installed, I realized the poor workmanship, and cheap materials used. The bottom back of the refrigerator has a cardboard instead of a metal to cover the motor. It is noisy, the shelves in the freezer don't support a lot of things. The shelves in the doors are terrible, and when opening the door have to be very careful not to drop something from the door accidentally. The door does not close as it should, so constanly I have to make sure it is closed. I wanted to return it, but there was a fee + delivery back to the store. I am basically stocked with it until it dies.
