Review of 20.53 cu ft Top Freezer model # FFHT2117LW7
4 Star Review   By Zyyoll on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

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.

Shipped a Lemon
1 Star Review   By AuRyan on Home Depot - Jun 5, 2013   

Accepted delivery 5/2/2013. Immediately noticed a clanking when running. Temp would not get below 42 degrees F. After thermostat was replaced, temp would not get below 50 degrees F. Thermostat was obviously not the problem.

Everything works as expected thus far, even the noise we expect could be a bit loud from times.

Great little Fridge!
4 Star Review   By SetterG on Home Depot - Apr 25, 2013   

Decent size, easy to set-up, works great so far. I've only had it for a couple of weeks so don't know about energy efficiency. I was able to down size from a 24 cu and even though this one is smaller, I fit everything in without any problem. The only thing that I don't like as well as my old one is the drawers are not as sturdy, but that one was over $1,200, so it's reasonable for these to be lighter weight. All in all, nice price, keeps everything really cold and it would be a good size for an apartment.

Good value for the price paid.
5 Star Review   By GLT46 on Home Depot - Mar 19, 2013   

The delivery was made as scheduled and set up was done efficiently by courteous personnel. The refrigerator has met all expectations so far. It does have separate temperature controls for the freezer and refrigerator compartments, which was not evident in the specifications and pictures available.....a plus.

Concerned Over Door(s) Closing
3 Star Review   By Charles on Home Depot - Feb 26, 2013   

I get the feeling that the doors do not adequately close; a thermometer placed in the freezer displays a disparity of 10 to 15 degrees for no apparent reason (-10 to -25). I feel that I have to manually push the door closed as opposed to simply letting it swing shut. And then - I'm still not sure. A pint of ice cream was not frozen solid after days in the freezer - while the ice cubes WERE frozen!!

Big Freezer!
4 Star Review   By jd525 on Home Depot - Feb 19, 2013   

Purchased online, should have gone to store & checked it out first. Shelves in door have large gap, some bottles don't stand up well. Since it doesn't have an ice maker, and it's larger than our last one, we are thrilled with the roomy freezer.

Don't Buy It!
1 Star Review   By lookmoreclosely on Home Depot - Feb 9, 2013   

I purchased this in Jan. 2013, delivered February hasn't worked correctly since installed on 6th; purchased an extended 3 yr warranty, was told to go through Frigidaire (only open Mon-Fri)and now have to wait until Monday to get any help, the freezer isn't freezing and the bottom portion is at 49 constantly. The rack in freezer isn't going to hold any significant amount of weight and the shelves in the bottom portion are the same. Cardboard covers the motor in the back. Do extra homework on your purchases!

I like it better than the fridge inside my house.
5 Star Review   By Myxscape on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

We bought this to replace our secondary fridge we have in the garage. The old one was a small side-by-side, we have a bigger side-by-side in the house, so the one in the garage was for over-flow. The cubic space in the new fridge is the same as our old one, but it stores soooo much more - love the freezer space, too. Storage on the door is great - I can fit 2 litter soda bottles to anything smaller. We have a full size freezer in the garage, too, but find myself using the one with the refrigerator - I must admit, I like it better than the one in my kitchen. We chose not to get the ice maker, so I can't comment on that. However, if the refrigerator in our kitchen goes out - I will look into every model Frigidaire offers - they seem to understand how to design a useful fridge.

I was looking for something simple and this had more than I was expecting.
5 Star Review   By Emmettlvng on Home Depot - Nov 10, 2012   

When my refrigerator started failing I knew I had little time before I would be living out of an ice chest. All I wanted was a simple refrigerator with a top freezer. I was limited in size because of the location and I did not want a smaller one. The Frigidiare with 20.5 cft was perfect. It cooled up within hours and I was able to move my food into it before going to bed.

No surprises
4 Star Review   By goods709 on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012   

good value for second refrigerator. the only negative I have at this point is the compressor is louder than I thought it would be. since it's in my garage that is not a huge factor.

Great Vaule, Great Price
5 Star Review   By Datter001 on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2012   

This purchase replaces a 22 year old, side by side, so I was concerned about storage space in the freezer especially since I had just shopped for the month for the two of us. The freezer took all of my product and had plenty of room for more. Did not get the ice maker but the 4 ice trays do the job for us. Plenty of room in the freezer. The refrigerator really exceeds my expectations, plenty of space, I like that the shelves pull out a little and are easily adjusted similar to an oven. Home Depot setup and delivery were terrific and is a main reason why I buy all of my appliances there. I purchased my front load washer and now this; my daughter is now a believer in Home Depot too. After my great experience there, she has purchased her range and refrigerator and the setup and delivery were terrific. Home Depot is my first place for appliance shopping.

This product fits the bill for now.
4 Star Review   By None on Home Depot - Oct 23, 2012   

Refrigerators are taller and deeper than they used to be. Takes a bit of getting used to. When running, there is a bit of a rattle, but not a big deal. It will become the garage refrigerator after my kitchen remodel.

Just what I wanted
4 Star Review   By rocketmom on Home Depot - Sep 19, 2012   

I like it much better than my side by side. Price was decent and it serves my needs. Don't need all those other gadgets that come with the expensive refrigerator.

perfect second fridge
4 Star Review   By ncgirl on Home Depot - Sep 16, 2012   

I bought this as a second fridge. The size is great. The glass shelves are basic, but much better than wire shelves appearance-wise and can slide out. The wire shelf in the freezer is cheap and there is no light in the freezer. There is a low hum every once in awhile just like any fridge, but it doesn't bother us since it's not in our main kitchen. I like this size over the 18 cu ft because it seems a little deeper and a little taller so that I can have more freezer space. Frigidaire also seems to be a reliable brand. No ice maker in this one, but you can add one. I just didn't need a second ice maker...more parts that will eventually malfunction. It is a great resolution to the problem with limited space from our side-by-side kitchen refrigerator.

good value, very bright, great delivery service
3 Star Review   By lynds on Home Depot - Sep 15, 2012   

This fridge is a great value for your money. I didn't want a bunch of bells and whistles and this fridge fits the bill. It is pretty quiet. The motor rattles a bit when you have left the door open to long and it has to work harder. There isn't a light inside the freezer but I don't think you really need one. The door handles are really sturdy and the door suction is great. I like that if you accidently leave the lunch meat drawer open the main door will still close. That's great for a clumsy person like me. I thought this would be a bit bigger than it was but that is my fault for ordering it online and not in person. The pull out lunch meat drawer is a little cheap and I've already pulled it out and off the track twice. But it is quieter than my old twenty year old fridge. My delivery was quick and efficient and the guys were very polite. They delivered Saturday morning with no problems

The product brightens my kitchen
5 Star Review   By grandma on Home Depot - Sep 5, 2012   

I had a side by side, hated it. Bought this simple no frills refrigerater and I love it. Got it in white. Really brightens up the kitchen. Nice space too.
