Fisher & Paykel 487L ActiveSmart™ French Door Fridge Freezer - Stainless Steel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly under repair This is the worst fridge freezer we've ever owned. The door flapper over stretched the heating wire and cut it. Apparently it happens a lot with this model according to f&p repair guy. Then flapper spring broke and now you have to buy an updated version as it was flawed design. This broke the heating wire for a second time and whole door probably needs to be replaced. Absolute dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 good to be true :) As good as you can buy. Even a smallest detail is great and perfectly balanced. So easy to use, and the perfectly positioned LED light will make you smile, every time you open the doors. There are two separate draws for the fruit and for vegetable, and the best thing is that you can change easily with the switch humidity level, to keep it longer fresh. P.s. On the end: Delivery guys helped us so much, and without their professional approach and experience, it will be impossible to bring the fridge in! Thanks' again to the Harvey Norman store and to guys from Fisher & Paykel delivery for the best team and professional work! All recommendations on every way for the fridge and for the seller :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, and easy to use! Fridge is beautiful and easy to use! Love how it's plumbed and has an automatic ice dispenser in the freezer. Haven't had any problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing stainless steel finish Having had many F&P appliances we chose this fridge for the brand, and also because it did not have as many fiddly bits which are really hard to keep clean - however we are really disappointed with the performance of the stainless steel, which is so lightweight it has dented within 3 months of purchase, compared to our last s/s fridge which did not dent in the whole 15 years we owned it. Also the plastic beneath the glass that seals the drawers is incredibly flimsy and won't last the distance. I have done other on-line checks since purchase and many other people note that it dents easily, so its not just our experience. I have written to F&P to ask why it performs so badly, and not surprisingly have not had an answer. We have a s/s dishdrawer which has not dented and appears to be stronger. So warning to those about to spend a lot of money on a fridge - think very carefully about F&P. Very disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet but impossible to keep clean. It is really well set out internally and the bright light is great as you can see throughout the fridge. Works well and is very quiet. Very hard to shut the doors and almost impossible to keep it clean every time I open it, it seems to get a mark but it looks beautiful when it is clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from F&P French door fridge, 2nd time purchase This is our second F & P fridge. We had larger version and downsized to the same model to fit into our new home. Spacious, sleek simple and stylish. Only negative, the right door on our new one doesn’t close as easily as our last larger model F&P fridge, can be frustrating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not good enough I have now had this fridge for 5 1/5 yrs. The first thing i noted is that the fridge compartment had to be set to the minimum setting to have beer cold enough so am concerned about power usage. Second thing, the little flimsy magnetic seals at the top and bottom of the french doors stopped sealing about 3 yrs ago so on humid days condensation pools inside the fridge displaying that it is not sealed. Third thing is the ice maker / dispenser stopped working about 3 yrs ago after some bits dropped out into the ice catcher. At this stage i got the "authorised" F&P agent around to take a look. He may as well have been looking at the Tardis cause he had no idea how to fix the ice maker, thought i'd added the magnetic strips which were now no longer sealing the French doors and said if having it set it to minimum got it cold enough then so be it. Now all the doors (freezer draw included) have lost their ability to close assist. This feature worked well when new. I have looked around for another fridge with the same dimensions and features but unfortunately this one seems to be the only one that fits the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart space! Bought a month ago, French doors work great for my small apartment space but is much roomier inside than a standard side by side. Plumbed in ice and water

Questions & Answers

Both water & ice dispenser?

Asked by: Ana814
Thank you for your question. Yes, both are plumbed and the water dispenser is on the right hand fridge door. The ice maker is located in the freezer.

Do we require a Plumber to plumb this fridge into water supply

Asked by: KrisTine
Hi there. Thanks for your question. This model of fridge will need to be professionally installed by a plumber. Hope this helps with your query.
