Question about Hotpoint RLA80 Refrigerator

1 Answer

Looking for a fridge with narrow depth and finding it hard.

The last fridge I bought was about ten years ago, nad I got one that was just under five feet in height and had quite a narrow depth 30cm. Now that I am going in search of a new one, I have been told that the smallest depth I can get is 35cm, which would dominat my kitchen (I got one delivered and it was huge). Do any companies still make narrow-depth fridges (and I am not talking about the enormous two door american style fridges, just your normal small white simple ones)

New Refrigerator and Refrigerator Depth

When buying a new refrigerator many people like the look of a built-in refrigerator but find that they are very expensive and will require extensive remodeling to make them work for their kitchen. The answer becomes the counter depth refrigerator. These refrigerators depth can vary in the depth between 23 and 27 inches. This will keep the front of the refrigerator back about six inches more than a normal refrigerator which often run between 30 to 34 inches in depth. While the front of the counter depth refrigerator may still have to stick out beyond the cabinets so that the door can be opened, it does not require that it stick out way beyond the cabinets, as many normal depth refrigerators do.

The configuration of many counter depth refrigerators is the double side by side door model with a freezer the full length on one side and the fridge on the other side. They also come with the freezer in a drawer on the bottom and a double door fridge on the top.
Because of the depth limitation many of the counter depth refrigerators are wider and/ or taller then the standard depth models. This gives the room for the refrigerator cu ft or refrigerator cubic feet (internal size or capacity) to be larger with less depth. If you are considering one of these models, make sure that you measure the space available to make sure that you can fit the refrigerator into the hole that you have for it.

The price of the counter depth refrigerator will also be a bit more then the standard depth refrigerator. While this cost may be more, they are still much less then a true built-in refrigerator. If you check you can also find counter depth refrigerators that will allow you to customize the front panels with wood, just like true built-in refrigerators.

What refrigerator best meets your needs can only be decided by you. A new refrigerator will often last about 15 years. Take the time to check carefully into what type and size will be the best for you.

Refrigerator intermittent humming sound

If it's not causing any problems to the overall operation of the unit itself, I wouldn't worry about it.

Hello, We just purchased the Electrolux side by side counter depth fridge (E23CS78HSS) a week ago. This past weekend the power failure light can on and the temperatures began to rise in the fridge and...

A week ago sounds like it is still under warranty. Check the manual for a troubleshooting chart and see if there is anything power failure. If you find nothing, return the fridge for another one.

We own a RF267AARS/XXA refrigerator. Ice maker works slow. Hardly ever makes a full tray of ice in 24 hrs. Then for no reason quits making ice for 2-3 days. I the pull the ice-tray out a couple of times...

You'll have to read my in depth review on for answers. Sounds like you bought the updated version that over corrects the "too much" ice which jams the mechanism to where it breaks the unit. This is my second friggen Samsung as my 1st 4 door quatro was replaced under their lemon law. Spending $2500 I thought I was buying quaility, instead I bought greif. I'm still working with Best Buy to get Samsung to fix the icemaker with it's current problem which sounds like yours. Go to the Epinions website and look me up, my username is "walkerpkw" My review was posted last year. Read both my horrifying Samsung reviews. Something is very wrong with their engineering department. You'll find my email address on my profile page. I'd be happy to inform you if the get this fixed. I'm told it's the fridges computer board and they're redisigning another?

Maytag side by side slowly getting warmer

I have actually been having the same problem. We have a Maytag MTB2156GEQ and it hasn't been cooling well at all lately. Temp in the fridge is about 52 degrees even on the highest setting. The freezer seems to be fine. I pulled off the back panel and vacuumed out the condensor coil and everything else under there. I then pulled out the control panel on the ceiling of the fridge. The channel between the freezer and fridge was almost completely blocked with ice. I cleaned it out by taking out the back panel of the freezer and pouring hot water down through the hole until it was clear.
that seem fix the issue.

Sub zero 650 fidge holding at 53 degrees

That depends on if your model has a five or ten year warranty on the compressor. Your problem may not be warranty related. Check and see if the condenser is clean, check for a frozen cooling coil.
