The Liebherr CS2062 is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, built in refrigerator
models like the CS2062 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 refrigerators 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.
Features & Specs - Liebherr CS2062
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.) Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.)
Bottom-freezer These put frequently used items at eye level. Fairly wide refrigerator shelves provide easy access. Though you must bend to locate items in the freezer, even with models featuring a pull-out basket, you will probably do less bending overall because the refrigeration compartment is at eye level.
Side-by-side Part of both the main compartment and the freezer are at eye level, where it's easy to reach. Side-by-sides are the most fully featured with through-the-door ice and water dispensers, temperature-controlled bins, and rapid ice-making cycles among the most requested. Narrow doors are handy in tight spaces. High, narrow compartments make finding stray items easy in front (harder in the back), but they may not hold items such as a sheet cake or a large turkey. Compared with top- and bottom-freezer models, a higher proportion of capacity goes to freezer space. They're much more expensive than similar-sized top-freezer models and are less space- and energy-efficient.
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 On side-by-side models, the water dispenser is normally accessible from the outside as part of the ice and water dispenser. On bottom-freezer models, the water dispenser 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.
Very happy with my purchase! My final choices were the Liebherr 2062 and the Subzero french door model. <br />The final pros for the Liebherr was the gallon storage in the doors, the two freezer doors...making the top drawer handy for frequently used items, the popular crisper system, and a $4,000. price difference!<br />Couldn't have made a better choice; just love it. It came with a nice surprise; the stainless is so easy to keep clean...just wipe with a damp paper towel!

Doors Did Not Close Compl
Poorly Made Doors Were No
We bought a Liebherr 30 inch depth refrigerator and asked the salesman how easy it was to repair the appliance. He said very easy. This is not true. The door of the refrigerator did not close and was not straight compared to the body of the appliance. The first representaive of the company came to fix the door but did not know how to straigten the door. He fixed the closing mechanism and pulled the appliacne out to fix a noise coming from the back. When he pushed in the appliance he disrupted the waterline to the icemaker. He denied pulling out the appliance to check a noise the refrigerator. The disruption caused enough water to leak into our condo and warp the brand new floor which then needed to be replaced. The manufacturer then called another repairman to help us move the appliacneso the floor could be repaired. Finally they called a third repairman who came from over two hours away, by car, and he fixed the appliacne. THe company did not cover the 3500 dollar repairs on the floor and they had absolutely no understanding of the function of the appliace. The company also does not follow up and return calls. Would NEVER buy anything from this company.

Terrible product and service
Bad Ice Maker
Not Energy Efficient
Customer service follows scripted responses and doesn't attempt to understand the issues. After 2 years with an erratically functioning ice maker I contacted customer service to see if they had ever come up with a fix. Since I was just beyond the 2 year warranty they offered to send me the parts so that I could either repair it myself or pay to have a local service company install. They had previously replaced the initial unit which they couldn't get to work properly after more than 6 months of failed attempts. The replacement unit worked no better than the one it replaced. I repeatedly questioned the service reps as to whether other units were presenting a similar problem and was dishonestly told that ours was the first such encounter.<br />We paid a lot of money and received a terrible product. German engineering is highly over-rated and Liebherr's business scruples are non-existent.<br />I've never been as disappointed with the performance of a product as I am with this one.
