Electrolux Tries to Right Their French Door Refrigerator Wrongs – EW23BC85KS
UPDATE: Electrolux notified me last week that the new fridges are now delayed until Jan 2012. No problems to report, they just want to make sure the unit is perfect considering their checkered history with the fridges. We’ll see.
Note: Episode 1 of Curto’s Appliance Show where I get a little more granular on this fridge can be found below.
The lighting is weak and I look like I am half asleep but bear with me folks, the info is good!
It’s no secret that Electrolux’ first generation of French Door Refrigerators with dispensers turned out to be bombs due to issues with their ice maker.
To this point I am still swapping out fridges (2 last week!) from customers who purchased these fridges as far back as 2 years ago.
End result – I swore to my Electrolux rep that I would never put another external dispensing Electrolux model on my showroom floor again. Ever!
However after attending my Fall buying show, I have once again drank from the well of Electrolux kool-aid and decided to put their new 23cu ft French Door Fridge (with dispenser)
on the showroom floor. Call me an idiot, but I was thoroughly impressed by not only the refrigerator but by Electrolux’ confidence that this fridge will make everyone forget the disaster of their Version 1.0 french door refrigeration.
The new fridges are sleek, sexy and stripped of all traces of what caused the problems in version 1.0. I’m confident they have it right this time.
And if they don’t, I will be parking my display model on my rep’s front lawn!
My intro on the new refrigerators (lighting is weak…working on it!)
