Summary: I ordered this refrigerator without seeing the actual model because it matched the other Icon appliances being installed in my new kitchen. It was $1000 less than the French door model and had decent reviews. So far I am happy with the unit (3 months). It looks great and functions the way it should. No problems at all.
Summary: Great fridge - a bit pricier than others - not sure, performance-wise, the added cost is worth it. But - we bought this because it is a side by side counter depth fridge, with a stainless finish, and simple styling - the form is basic and clean - simple pulls (we didn't want curved elements).
Electrolux kitchen - lots or repairs needed early on
disappointed kid with no bunkbed, Amazon
3 May 2012
Summary: In 2009 I remodeled my kitchen. I purchased all Electrolux appliances (full sized refrigerator, beverage refrigerator, dishwasher, dual fuel range and microwave). Thankfully I purchased a 5 year warranty for all appliances but the beverage refrigerator. Two and 1/2 years later... I have had to have my water/ice dispenser repaired, my dishwasher motor replaced, the control panel on the range fixed and now the control panel on the beverage refrigerator is not working.
Summary: The first one that was delivered was a nightmare, doors did not close correctly (always condensate in the fridge) and the ice/ water dispensor did not work. Required two service calls into the house and multiple parts replacements and it still did not work. At this point Electolux insisted one must have three service calls on a new machine before a replacement would be issued.
Summary: Ibought 7 electrolux icon appliances this past year. The regrigerator needed the air filter and water filter changed as expected in about 11 months. After replacing the air filter, it is so loud and I do NOT believe it was that way before. The first repairman agreed that it was NOT supposed to be that loud, so he ordered the replacement part. When it came in a different person came to install it.
Excerpt: We bought this fridge 5 years ago mostly for it looks. Since then we've replaced the main circuit board twice and the water/ice dispenser board twice. Last night the fridge stopped working all together. I just want to throw it in the trash rather than call the repair guy again.
