Recommend a refrigerator

  • ^^

    May market pa rin naman kasi para sa mga non inverter ref

    Sa tingin ko ok naman ang 660-750 pesos per month sa ref na 20.9 cubic ft. na nakaset to 2c ang fridge and 18c ang freezer.

    Kung madalas fluctiations dyan sa inyo, mas ok na bumili kana rin ng AVR di lang para sa ref nyo pati na rin sa ibang gamit nyo dyan sa bahay like TVs, PC etc.
  • @Abby Panasonic Ref namin. Inverter na no frost. Bale naka power on delay siya para maprotektahan siya in case of fluctuations.
  • @shinichikudo ilang watts avr mo?
  • I've been reading reviews sa YouTube, and other forums - avoid the Linear Compressor ng isang famous brand - not reliable yung linear compressor.
  • @emilbook i tend to avoid korean products because of quality and defect issues. I used to own one and it broke after 30 days. Better get japanese products.
  • i think lahat naman ng ref may lemon di maiiwasan talaga kahit japs product

    meron ako kaka bili ko lang samsung naka 3months naman so far so good naman
  • @theredguy387

    500w, ref lang naman nakakabit.
    ——————-

    Yung samsung ref namin ok pa naman hanggang ngayon, lapit na mag 5 yrs this yr.
  • @ShinichiKudo
    Kaya siguro tumagal ang Samsung ref mo dahil sa AVR.
  • I suspect that Inverter type refs are prone to malfunction since may additional complexity yung motor - each spin has to be sensed so may sensor pa sya.

    And newer refs may mga built-in fan pa to distribute cold air.

    Kaya I highly recommend an AVR with Power-On-Delay. AVR wattage should be 3 times greater than the load.
  • @theredguy387

    Nasa 8 months pa lang sir since gumamit ko ng AVR para sa ref namin.

    eeek... w/o prior research, i got a 24 cu ft LG side by side ref (inverter linear compressor) sometime in 2019 purely based on looks/features lol!
    meron na pala class action suit against LG for said issue hehe!

    although there is a 10 yr warranty on the compressor, it would be such a hassle to have it repaired/replaced.

    so far, no problems w/ it though (keeps fingers crossed)




    my mom was quite impressed w/ it so she got one too... nandamay pa nwoh lol!

    Bat yung French door lang ang nasa law suit :)

    Ang issue is the Linear Compressor. So lahat dapat ng model :)

    Very impressive naman kasi yung Linear Compressor, maganda yung theory nila. But unfortunately, the weakness lies with the rubber diaphragm somewhere in within the pump. Yun ang nasisira, yung rubber (or something diaphragm).
  • Bat yung French door lang ang nasa law suit :)

    It seems like sa french door lang affected yung flaw ng LC. They’ve already released models na affected dun (https://www.consumerreports.org/lawsuits-settlements/lg-settles-class-action-lawsuit-over-refrigerator-compressors/)

    Wala pa rin ako nakikita or nasisiraan na top or bottom freezer na Linear Compressor so it seems like sa french door lang nag aapply yung problem. Fortunately, I’ve heard na inupdate na daw ng LG yung design plus refrigerant. Backed up na rin ng 2 years with parts and labor yung warranty nila instead na 1 year. However, hindi pa natin matetest yung new models since most of the french door na nasiraan was bought 4-7 years ago. Only way to find out if they fixed it is to wait 4-7 years.
  • Kasama ba sa sukat ng height specs ng ref yung rubber feet. If not, bagsak ko sa 9cu ft. may microwave shelf kasi sa ibabaw.
  • guys tanong ko lang po, ano po pinka tipid sa kuryente na brand and model ref?

    I am thinking kung 8cu.ft na 2door or 6.7cu.ft na 1door. ano po ba mas efficient sa dalawa?

    Thank you
  • kakakuha ko lang Panasonic BP260VD first time ko sa inverter at no frost.

    normal po ba yung parang my kumulong tubig na sound? hehehe
  • So I decided to replace my 10yr old Panasonic inverter fridge. It still works although the coldness is not par when it was brand new but heck I still get refreshing cold water out of it. However, the plastic cages broke over time especially in the bottom freezer where it is almost unusable.

    Now I got another Panasonic fridge and this time a 3 door bottom freezer pull out design - NR-CY550QSPH. It's currently at the "settling" stage as recommended by the vendor. Wondering if anyone has the same model as mine? Any tips and tricks?

    recommending panasonic inverter na bottom freezer no frost, nalimutan ko model around 26k sya..

    same..ganyan din yung NR-BP230VD namin, bought last January..

    "The flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal."
  • Mas ok ba ireplace na lang ng current size yung current ref namin na about 13 y/o, non inverter about 12 cu ft with an inverter one or iparepair na lang?
  • ^imho mag-inverter ka na lang po. sulit na sulit

    Chances are lumalaki ang pamilya as time goes by. Better get a bigger sized fridge if budget and of course space permits.

    Savings are often realized for Inverter type motors that run daily and if better yet, 24/7. Fridges run round the clock 24/7 a day, 7 days a week.
  • Thanks sa input guys. Will look into a Panasonic or LG inverter :)

    EDIT: Considering a condura one. Sirain ba talaga yung freezer door?

    Condura CBF-253i - not sure kung nasa market pa, we got this late 2019 and at the time siya yung may highest EEF.

    I still see it in Abenson's site. I am actually planning to get CBF-356i. Nice to hear your input.
  • Since I did not receive any response from my previous post regarding another user's perspective of the Panasonic Inverter NR-CY550QSPH Refrigerator, I took the liberty to create an in-depth review of the fridge plus a few tips and tricks! Watch the video in the link below:
