The Frigidaire Gallery FGUN2642L[P] is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator
models like the Gallery FGUN2642L[P] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
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.
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 level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Claimed capacity (cu. ft.) Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.

Cabinet-depth model Cabinet-depth models usually measure 27 to 28 inches deep, not quite flush with the cabinets, but at least three inches shallower than many standard 36-inch-wide models. You can get models with stainless exteriors or panel kits.
French-door style French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.
Water dispenser It is normally located in the fresh food compartment.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless steel is stylish but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
So far, we're not happy with this unit. We're on our third service call in three weeks with the unit unable to maintain a steady temperature. Main board has been replaced, thermistor as well. Next replacement the keypad control board. We've been three+ weeks without a reliable refrigerator.

Not Cold Enough
We have had this product a week today and this is our second one. It is failing. The first arrived dead on arrival..no power at all. We refused delivery and Best Buys sent out a second one. Now today it is no longer cooling properly. The alarms do not work that alert you to high temp, nor do the alarms work that alert you if the door is open. The temp displays 33 degrees, but the cooling never goes below 40 degrees. We bought a thermometer to test the cabin temp. It reads 45 degrees and the fridge door digital reading still says 33 degrees. We tried twice with this fridge because the space layout is perfect for us. Lots of room and easy on the back. Design is perfect but performane is extremely poor. Please don't buy this product. You will be sorry. And as for Consumer Reports rating...who inspected this thing??? It does not deserve the ratings it has on here. Makes me wonder if my subscription price was worth it.
