Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I love the SLATE color

12/15/2018

Small fridge but PERFECT for our needs. We had a double door fridge that I HATED trying to get to items in the back etc especially that dang freezer GRRRR I was ecstatic to go back to the old school fridge -with the freezer on top. Couldnt be happier. I would have gone a little bit bigger but the only size SLATE color it came in was this - so decision made

Small enough to fit into my limited space.

10/30/2018

Keeps cold and runs economically but very loud when running. Makes strange popping noise which the manual says is typical. I find it annoying. Perhaps I will become accustomed to it with time.

Works fine

2/23/2018

We enjoy this small refrigerator with no ice maker or water to worry about. We have had trouble with ice makers and leaking water in the past. The plastic drawers seem a bit flimsy but other than that it suits our needs.

We were looking for a not too fancy refrigerator for our cabin. We were also looking for energy efficiency. This refrigerator fit the bill on both scores. Then we also received an energy efficiency rebate which was a bonus

Very organized

1/5/2018

I love the slate color. I like the size of the freezer. The shelves and drawers in the refrigerator are great to keep food organized. Its a little but big for me being a one person household. I wish the compartments in the door were not as wide as they are. It would be good for a household with more people.

Perfect fit

12/27/2017

We have been looking for a medium size refrigerator as a extra/back-up fridge. This was the perfect choice. Lots of room works great and we love the color fits right in to our decor.
