Customer Questions & Answers

is this counter depth and does it have interior water?

Asked by: terry
It is "counter depth", but "counter depth" is a relative term. It is shallower than most, but will still stick out a few inches past standard counters.

This wasn't specifically called out in the more general question of cabinet color.

What is the acual depth of the refrigerator with the doors open 90 degrees or the freezer drawer fully extended (whichever is greater)?

Home Depot site says 43 inches, but another big box store site say 48 inches. Whirlpool site doesn't provide that dimension. Thank you!
Asked by: Deb
42 inches but it will sit from the back wall about another inch

Customer Reviews

36 in. W 20.0 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Black, Counter Depth is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 470.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing... Installed 2 weeks ago, and already have a tech visit. This is an incredibly loud machine - tech says it's the compressor, and it's just how it is. The cabinet doors and fridge have visible insulation. Our freezer took 4 days to produce a full ice bin. The interior water is awkward, because you must use 2 hands to fill. There is still plastic around the edges because I can't get it all off! Very disappointed in quality and function. Shelves don't go to the back. Anything in the middle of the shelf towards the back freezes...frustrating [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water inside door I like my new refrigerator, but it definitely isn't made as well as my old Whirlpool fridge. The stainless steel is thin, and I worry about getting dings in the metal (it had one when it was delivered, and the store is shipping me a new left door). The water dispenser inside the door is a bit awkward to use, and drips a little after each use. I really wish there was a counter depth fridge that had a single door on top instead of the double french door, just an easier design to use. It is a pretty appliance, and I hope it lasts a long time. It will take some getting used to the french doors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Home Depot said that they are not willing to take any responsibility for selling me a fridge that broke within 65 days of installation. They sold me a defective product and then stated that I have to take it up with the manufacturer. On 3/9/17 I purchased a brand new Whirlpool fridge from Home Depot. On 5/13/17 the fridge stopped cooling and I had to throw everything away (after only 9 weeks of use) . I called Whirlpool since it was well within the 1yr manufacturers warranty to set up a service call (I did not purchase the extra warranty sold by Home Depot due to, out of 47 reviews, 40 of them gave just 1 star, and I quote “not worth the paper it is printed on”). A tech came out on 5/17/17 and ordered parts. Another specialized tech came out on 5/22/17 and stated that there was a major system malfunction and it is unlikely to be repaired in the next week as they have to test for leaks and possibly order more parts. I spent over $1000.00 on a brand new fridge that has been broken for 2 weeks and wont likely be fixed for another 1-2 weeks. I called Home Depot and asked them if they would stand behind their product and make good on the fact that they sold me a brand new fridge that (if it can even BE repaired) and is going to take almost a month and also 4 days off work. They said it's not their problem. I cant run a house without a fridge. I can cook without stove, and clean dishes without a dishwasher, but I cant function without a fridge. Unless something changes, I WILL NEVER purchase another appliance from Home Depot, and I will tell anyone that will listen exactly why.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and looks good I've had this refrigerator for about 2 month and have had no problems. The water dispenser gives clear cold water and the ice maker works great. Quiet operation and the counter depth makes a big difference in our galley kitchen. The one and only downside is there is not as much freezer space as I would like but I understand you gotta give up a little space for a counter depth model. All in all I love it!!

While we are sad to lose some square footage, the counter depth model fits perfectly into our kitchen and gives a clean look with the countertops and cabinets. The water dispenser inside sold us on this fridge, and it is easy to use and gives us cold, filtered water on demand. The freezer is small, but we usually like to cook with fresh food, so this isn't much of an issue for us. Overall, a great buy for the money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor water supply The refrigerator works fine except for an on going problem we have had with the fresh water supply mechanism, which continues to drip when the water supply is off. We have now had four service visits and numerous parts replaced but the unit continues to drip. We are now awaiting for another service visit to hopefully resolve the water drip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beach House Fridge I've looked at a lot of these refridgerators and they all seem high priced for junk. They all have knocks against them for breaking down, so I decided not to invest a ton of money into a top of the line Viking or Sub-Zero, mainly because, none of them are reliable. So far, (3 months), there have been no issues with this fridge and I actually like it. I love the counter depth and it doesn't take away a lot of storage room, but keep in mind, it is smaller, so you will need a separate beer fridge in the garage. It has all the storage compartments and has an internal water line. I like this because a) the ones on the door tend to break and leak, and b), they take up way less room when they are internall. I also like the ice maker in the bottom drawer, rather than in the door. You get a whole bin of ice, ready for drinks. With the ones on the door, you have to wait forever to get ice... Anyway, this has very nice, sleek look, and it fits nicely in my surrounded cabinets. My only issue with this fridge is that the doors don't close tightly all the time. They tend to pop open slighly when you close one side, the other will pop open a bit, and you have to make sure you close both doors. It's really not a big deal though. One more thing I forgot to add is that I have different stainless appliances and they all match each other: Maytag DW, GE range, Sharp Microwave and this Fridgidaire fridge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from quiet refrigerator The only thing that I don't like is that the water dispenser is VERY SLOW!It takes a long time to fill a glass. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
