    Frigidaire "Professional" doesn't live up to its name!
    by: Anonymous

    Frigidaire Professional (26 CF) side-by-side is supposed to be the upgrade from Frigidaire Gallery but it's not in this unit. The entire unit is NOT encased in stainless steel. Only the doors are. The rest is grey.
    The models seem to be very inconsistent depending on who you buy them from. You may get a wine rack, you may not. You may get a can holder for the door, you may not.

    All of the plastic used for drawers and door containers is CHEAP! The "chill" drawer is so hard to open and close and if you force it, you may crack the cheap, thin and loud plastic. Gone are those thick and sturdy white drawers of the past. These are clear and they are so thin and so flimsy.
    For a "professional" series, the unit as a whole is also louder than the 19-year-old fridge that came with this house we just bought. We got rid of it but it was running just fine. This one's compressor is MUCH louder.

    The worst feature is the water dispenser on the freezer door. The little plastic tray will not stay put no matter what you do. It's so cheaply made and not well designed so it constantly falls out. If you leave it out, the dripping will accumulate and not have the option of pouring it out in the sink. Yes, the water dispenser always drips after you stop it and the ice dispenser will always shoot out little pieces of crushed even though you choose "cubes."
    VERY disappointed for the price point but more so because of the very misleading name, implying it's even better than the gallery series. :-(
