Frigidaire Appliances


We are building a new house so today we went into a appliance store to pick out new appliances. My question is has anyone owns/owned Frigidaire appliances? They look great and the prices are comparable but I am not finding the best reviews. Any advice or input would be great. Thanks

I've got a refrigerator I bought from HD a few months ago. It was one step up from the cheapest Frigidaire model they offered... No problems at all and it's very quiet and energy efficient. Owned since April this year.

Frigidaire Appliances


We've had a medium grade Frigidaire stove for 10 years. Had to replace the HSI for the oven 2 years ago, otherwise no problems.
3 year old Frigidaire dishwasher, works excellent. No complaints.

My parents have been happy with their Frigidaire appliances.

I don't know if there is really a whole lot of difference between manufacturers any more. I like to buy appliances based on how easy it will be to find replacement parts.

Thanks for the input. I can add a 5 yr warranty for $249 on 4 pieces. I would cover the refrigerator, cook-top, oven and dishwasher. The appliance center is offering 11% all appliance and 15% off any energy star appliances. Since we are building with an approved builder I am getting all 5 pieces brand new for just under $4K. I think we will end up going with the Frigidaire Gallery set and hope they serve us well.

On a side note we priced out all 3 cook tops (gas, electric and induction). I think we have ruled out the induction just due to the high cost and not compatible with all types of pans. In my mind gas would be great to have but not sure my Wife wants it with 2 small kids in the house.

Frigid' does a nice job on ?--aesthetics. you're at Gallery price point then get a good gas cooktop [kids grow up] and a double 30" GE electric wall oven[top oven convection].

Wife hates GE. Just because I am at Gallery price doesn't mean I have money to waste. Sure a double oven looks cool but damn to use it 1-2 times a year seems like a lot of money down the drain. Even then we don't even host thanksgiving at our house. We have to drive back to hometown Nebraska for that.

Frigidaire makes decent appliances, I would buy them if I needed new. The only thing in Frigidaire line I would not touch would be laundry products.

Good, I went ahead and purchased all new Frigidaire kitchen appliances today. I went with all matching gallery s.s. so the kitchen should all look the same. The only upgrade was on the dishwasher which I went with the pro series because they had a closeout on them for $499 which is an awesome deal. The dishwasher is s.s and has hidden controls so you won't tell it is a pro series unless you look inside. I am very happy and so is the Wife. We even ended up under budget.

We are looking at the Frigidaire Gallery Stove (FGGF3032K), due to it is in our budget. I like the higher end Gallery that Lowes & Best Buy sells, but the wife says too much. Our stove is about ten years old, and we are having problems with it not lighting the burners for the broiler & stove, so we have looked at better to replace, then keep fixing it. The other that we are looking at, is the GE Adora line also.

If it was up to me, I would be doing a professional grade range, since my son & I both like to cook, and we are doing a Kitchen remodel next year.

Personally I would buy the best stove you can afford. I like to cook too and there is nothing more frustrating than having a stove/oven that is under the capacity you need and doesn't have the functions that make cooking and baking a fun activity instead of a chore.

If you are happy, and more importantly if your WIFE is happy, that's what is most important.

Any more there are only 2-3 companies that make appliances. They just re-brand them. Same as with car batteries. Last year I bought my wife a new microwave for Christmas (yes, she specifically asked for it!). It came down to choosing between two absolutely identical microwaves - one being an LG, and the other a Sharp. I got the Sharp because it was $10 cheaper.

That said, it's far more important to look at features, capacities and warranties, than brand names.


Enjoy the new house!

Frigidaire Appliances


Our entire house if filled with nothing but Fridgidaire products. The dishwasher has been replaced about 4 times in 6 years and misc parts replaced for other things wrong.

Our refrigerator handle is falling off/coming loose.

All of the appliances were here except for the washer/dryer which we bought new. They have been fine and have no problems with them. They are the front loading and the washer is for HE products only.

Like I said the dishwasher has been replaced numerous times [due to home warranty].

I would say that over all everything is pretty decent other than their dishwashers but based upon their product reliability on the dishwasher I'll never buy Fridgidaire again.

I even asked them right before the dishwasher was replaced [right before the warranty was running out] that since they repaired it 4 times that year if instead of replacing it...if they could just repair what was wrong and just extend my warranty for another year. They declined so that told me that they didn't believe their products [dishwasher wise] was meant to last.
