About - Whirlpool Gold GI6FARXX[Q]

The Whirlpool Gold GI6FARXX[Q] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Gold GI6FARXX[Q] 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.

Water leaking onto floor

Pros
Very nice
Cons

Comment:
This is a very nice refrigerator. We were very disappointed however when we discovered water leaking onto our hardwood floor. It seems they have a patch kit you can buy and fix it yourself but who wants to do that after paying $2K for a refrigerator.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought this after I read the review on CR. I was disappointed when the icemaker went out. I recommend not only reading CR but also reading other people's reviews before you make a purchase. It seems if I read the reviews, I might have skipped this one and went to a different brand.
