Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Beautiful

Tonyalea 9/8/2018

I bought this beautiful refridgerator about a month ago the refridgerator is beautiful and I love the layout inside. With that said almost immediately after delivery a humming noise started randomly. I am finally at my wits end and decided to call Electrolux customer service to find out this annoying humming noice is a side effect of this refrigerator unfortunately for me nothing can be done. Just sad that this annoying humming noise is not listed in the description I guess no one would buy it this truth is known Disappointed with Electrolux Do NOT buy this refrigerator

Yikes 6/9/2018

This refrigerator is awful. The space is poorly designed and the quality is even worse. After YEARS of having issues with the original one we were finally granted a replacement. I honestly dont know if that is a good or bad thing. get the extended warranty I cant even remember how many times someone has come out to fix this model for us

CKTorrey 5/30/2018

We did all Electrolux in our new kitchen and I love the overall look. The refrigerator freezer have plenty of room to accommodate our family needs. I do wish the handle matched that on the 36 Dual Fuel Range we purchased but otherwise we are satisfied. The freezer door was dented when received but Electrolux was quick to schedule service and get the part ordered to replace it.

The Frig is Possessed

Audrey 7/10/2017

We bought the Frig a little over a year ago at the 6 month mark it started releasing water and ice whenever it wanted...unloading the whole containers worth of ice came crashing down and then water That happened 3 times before a service guy could get out to FIX it then 3 months later it did it again...this time I was able to reset it and it worked for another 3 more months. At this point it just did Ice and I called for service again and they sent someone else out who replaced another computer board. Its worked for a month and today it dispensed probably 5-10 gallons of water at 4 different times between 5 and 7:30AM and I turned off the water to the frig and dried everything up called customer service who denied replacement because our frig is out of warranty by one month but the customer service with electrolux said they will still send someone out to look at it and fix. So unless you want to redo the floors in your kitchen and have a service coming to your house every other month this is NOT the frig of choice.

Very nice fridge

casey456 6/21/2016

We bought this model of this fridge in March 2009. Over 7 years later and this thing after a good cleaning still looks and functions perfectly. Our ice make DID break one year after buying it hence why Im docking off a star. Other than that this fridge is still sleek still modern and worth a buy. Our previous fridge lasted 27 years and we only replaced that because it looked hideous so heres hoping this fridge outlasts that one.

Wonderful fridge

emma 4/28/2016

We have had this fridge for over 8 years and havent had any issues with it until recently. Were getting it fixed but I have loved this appliance and have felt it performed quite well. I love the counter depth in our galley-style kitchen - it maximizes our space. Great product

Good Fridge for the price

Hlfrech 12/9/2015

I bought this fridge a little less than a year ago and overall it has been a good and reliable. The only problem I have had is that the water and ice dispenser on the front quit working and I was told by the repair man that you couldnt store anything in front of the air vent on the top shelf and that if you dont use much ice you should dump the ice bin regularly. I feel that like somewhat of a design flaw as it is located in a place where you would store items. The only other thing that I have encountered that is bothersome is that the freezer is not large enough for a large frozen pizza the way it is configured. Luckily I dont eat many of them so its not a big deal for me but may be for others.

Almost scared me off..

pokey 9/12/2015

This Refrigerator is fine. I wanted to start out that way because of all the negative reviews I found on this model. I dont doubt people who posted had problems but 2 years ago? Designs change and happy people usually dont write reviews. Ive very happy with my purchase of this appliance and to be known Im a perfectionist someone who is hard to make happy. The only issue Ive had is with a door hinge clicking when opening closing. I sprayed a little cooking oil on it and from use it has corrected itself. I would not hesitate to buy another Electrolux appliance.

Poor quality

lexingtonperson 5/16/2015

We bought our refrigerator in 2008 model # EI23CS55GS1 .Ice maker stopped working soon afterwards . In spite of at least two visits for repair could not be fixed and had to be shut off. Next came the plastic parts especially the tracks for the bin which broke. Final straw was the thermostat and interface panel- both stopped working . This is or should I say was an expensive refrigerator with scant attention to the quality of its most important parts and functions.This is the first review of its kind I am writing so one can imagine my disappointment with the product.Our previous refrigerator lasted over 20 years.

The Smart Refrigerator

Gary 1/31/2014

I recently purchased the Electrolux and its Awesome Aside from the crisper door needing repair the refrigerator is perfect. The convenience of the ice/water dispenser is like living in luxury no need to hassle with ice cube trays the shelves slide out and everything is easily accessible how genius not to mention the controlled temperature within certain parts of the frig. Its perfection in the kitchen absolute awesome perfection

Melissa 12/26/2013

Happy with counterdepth side by side except the ice dispenser had to be replaced after 3 mos of use. There was a technician bulletin for the electronic control panel. Also there was an led light in the fridge that never worked since setup only to find there is a short in that wiring the technician told us cant be fixed. Havent spoke to Electrolux on this yet. I do really like the fridge just wish the bugs were worked out. Early on I did have opportunity to speak with associate from Electrolux their customer service was excellant.

this fridge won me over

Lisa 12/17/2013

Well I was in the market for a refrigerator that would work in my galley-style kitchen. After remodeling I realized that the current fridge I had was too deep and stuck far out beyond the cabinets. After looking for several months at super expensive units that would fit in the space the way I wanted and learning that there are multiple variations of counter-depth I found this refrigerator. It was an open-box unit but not used. I loved the way it looked and the measurements were right so I scooped it up. After getting it home I was reading up on the model and saw a lot of complaints about the ice-maker. I was worried and I felt it was somewhat my fault for not reading up on it before purchase but I also thought what are the odds? Also it seemed to be with units older than mine. Well sure enough ONE day after my return period from the store expired the ice maker stopped working Ugh. I tried all the trouble-shooting techniques to no avail so I called someone out to service it under warranty. They ended up replacing the unit and its worked ever since. About 3 months. Not only does the ice maker work but it sometimes shoots out too much ice so you have to watch it The water tastes great. The settings and space work exactly as I expected and it looks awesome in my kitchen I was a bit intimidated by the many settings and controls but so far so good. So I would recommend the unit to others looking for a decently-priced stylish and modern looking fridge--even with the ice issue I mentioned.

No maintenance fridge

Ice anyone? 9/26/2013

Our previous refrigerator had constant ice maker problems and the freezer drawer felt like it was never closed all the way and I felt like food got lost in there. With this frig we havent had any problems. I can actually see whats in the freezer and we never run out of ice. Would like more bins on the door on the refrigerator side towards the bottom even if it meant that the drawers were cut back - otherwise it is designed wonderfully for a counter depth.

Horrible design

Cakesalot 7/29/2013

Many problems with cheap plastic clips that hold drawers onto sliding rails. Every time the drawer is closed the clip detaches and the drawer comes off the track. Very cumbersome to remove the drawers for cleaning. They took a simple design and over-complicated it and made frustrating to operate. Also..it is ridiculous that a 1/3 of the refrigerator door is dedicated to soda can storage. This unit has very little useable storage and to devote that much space to soda cans is outrageous. Use ice in your soda and give me some useable storage space. Who designed this thing?

Very frustrated

Adam 10/3/2012

I feel like the serviceman will be a regular visitor to my house. The fridge is attractive but I have had multiple service calls to try to fix the icemaker. Also one of the drawers repeatedly comes undone because of the cheap plastic clip that holds it to the sliding rail. The water dispenser tube is located too far forward so that using a narrow glass means you may have water missing the glass. Also I have condensation dripping from the icemaker flap on warm days -causing a puddle on the drip tray. By the way this is the third review I have written and have yet to see my previous ones posted. Fridge is made in Mexico not USA as I was informed.
