Frigidaire Complaint - Frost Problems From The Beginning
KATY, TEXAS -- I purchased a brand new Frigidaire side by side refrigerator for around $1000 at Lowes. When it got home it immediately started making a loud groaning sound. We ignored it to see if anything changed.
Within a week our freezer started to freeze over where the ice maker connected to the door. The service man said the connection wasn't good and the flap needed to be replaced. They sent a new flap and a repair technician came out to install it. Then the problem came back, so I called the Electrolux company again to get it fixed. The repair man came out again and said our door was the connection problem and needed to order a new one. When he came out the third time with a new door, I finally mentioned the groaning sound (since it was still happening); and the technician said it was the freon in the fridge and it was because we bought a cheap fridge that doesn't have good insulation. I'm sorry, but $1000 is not cheap.
But the frost came back and started to get even worse. The frost started to completely freeze over on the top and bottom of the ice maker, and blocked up the dispenser. No ice would come through, unless it was shredded to nearly nothing. When our door started having problems opening due to the insane amount of frost on it, I called again. The Electrolux company was rude and inconsiderate. They said their committee was still reviewing my complaint (months later) and even at the best would only be able to send me another refrigerator identical to this one; but at that time I wanted my money back and not a Frigidaire.
I went to Lowes and explained the whole situation. They were nice and felt sorry for my situation and were instrumental in getting me any help to fix this problem. They refunded me for the full amount of the fridge and let me pick a new fridge out. My recommendation to Lowes is to stop carrying this brand. If it wasn't for Lowes and their understanding I would still be fighting with the Electrolux people.
Long story short...stay away from this brand!!!
