About - Frigidaire Gallery FGHB2878L[P]

The Frigidaire Gallery FGHB2878L[P] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Gallery FGHB2878L[P] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
We built a new house and moved in October 31, 2014. The builder used Frigidaire Gallery for the gas cooktop, microwave, double ovens, and dishwasher. We really like the patent Frigidaire has on the stainless steel fronts that don't show fingerprints, they are awesome! We wanted to get a fridge to match but saw this model did not have many good reviews. I spoke to Lowe's and they told me Frigidaire had corrected all of the complaints and issues with this model. We chose to purchase it and are glad we did! The front never shows fingerprints and it matches all of our other appliances. The ice maker has worked perfectly and has never given us one problem. I recently changed the water filter and ice keeps coming like a champ, no freeze ups or other issues since replacing the filter! This has been a great fridge and we really like it.

Comment:
Do not buy this refrigerator until Frigidaire redesigns the ice maker. My first refrigerator was finally replaced after I persevered because Frigidaire personnel kept giving me the run around and trying to tell me I wasn't using the icemaker properly. My second refrigerator is worse. The icemaker is not functional, and the refrigerator itself is noisy and doesn't hold consistent freezer temperatures. <br />How can Consumer Reports say that this refrigerator has No discernible flaws in performance when the reviews of owners of this product say otherwise?

Comment:
Bought a new one in August 2010. After 4-6 service calls within the first year, Frigidaire replaced it. I've had the new one for a year with no problems, but I don't trust it. Now I have to replace it due to fire/smoke damage. I will not get another with the icemaker in the refrigerator section. My appliance guy says they don't make the same model anymore.
