Energy Star 26 Cubic Foot Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Stainless Steel, Energy Saver Plus Technology and Large Crisper Drawers from the Gallery Collection
A few problems
There are two problems with the unit. Number one is that the ice comes out so fast that it ends up on the floor and don't even try to put ice in a juice glass. You will not be fast enough before the ice is all over the floor. I had techs out twice and the second one finally told me that I would just have to live with it. No way to slow down the ice launching. The second disappointment was that the water is not cold. You would think that that would be a given. After all, it is a refrigerator that makes ice. Why couldn't it make cold water. Guess I didn't ask when I purchased. Other than these two problem the refrigerator works well.

I bought a Galaxy stainless steel side by side refrigerator about a month ago, from day one it made la lot of noise some of which were weird. I phoned the dealer who said it was more or less normal. The exterior of the fridg is very cold to the touch, unlike my friends ss model from another manufacturer which makes me question its energy efficiency. Last week the ice maker went out and I was promised it would be repaired this week; today I was told that the repair man would not be available until next week. Their extended warranty is only available for a maximum of 3 years which does not instill confidence.

A LOT for the $$$
Bought this fridge, updating our kitchen. We have ALWAYS been a Sears (Kenmore) customer. As of late, our fridge bought from Sears (Kenmore) has broke down 3 times. Yes it is under warranty, but it becomes a hassle. The salesman introduced us to the Frigidaire Gallery collection, which we loved. We even received 20% off any Frigidaire appliance. It fit perfect, looks and works beautifully. Just in time for the Holidays! Frigidaire has a new customer and a spokesman for the Frigidaire Gallery collection!

The unit looks very nice, is spacioius for a side-by-side, which, traditionally have space limitations, especially in the freezer section, and overall performs very well. However, this particular model does NOT dispense COLD water from the door dispenser. The water is room temperature, at best. It does not matter how much water you run through it, the water does not get cool or cold. My tap water is cooler. I was told by Frigidaire that this model does not have a cooling unit for the water reservoir. Did Frigidaire bother to put this tidbit of information on their spec sheet?? No. I thought the purpose of a refrigerator was to cool things. VERY disappointed with my $1000+ refrigerator that does not dispense cool water. Cannot understand Frigidaire's reasoning, except to cut corners and save a few $$$'s.

I hope the designers read this because it's a 5 star piece of equipment if the fix one thing. The automatic ice maker the bar that regulates when the machine should stop making ice always gets stuck (in the ice). As the ice gets higher in the bucket it's supposed to push the bar up into stop position, but my lever ALWAYS get's stuck in the ice never has it shut off automatically.
Anyone else have similar issue?
Besides that one flaw I love all my Frigidaire stuff.

Although we love the looks the refrigerator has issues. The water dispenser is as slow as molasses. Don't use the ice dispenser as you end up with more ice on the floor than in your cup. The noises it makes are something else. There are times it sounds like a jet taking off in the kitchen. Love the space and it does keep everything at a good temperature but the features people want, water, ice - stick to bottled water and an ice bucket.

A very very good fridge
I just got this fridge a couple of months ago. I always wanted a fridge with a water/ice dispenser on the door.
I did a lot of research before buying this. This is one of the very few fridges with smudge resistant coating. You can touch it all you want and there are virtually not fingerprints left.
There is plenty of space inside and the shelves are sturdy and can be rearranged.
I didn't give it 5 stars for features because it is not a top of the line model and there are some things that I wish it had but wasn't willing to pay that much more money to get them.
Things I wish it had:
- photo sensor to regulate the brightness of the light in the fridge, so you don't get blinded at night when u go for a snack.
- the design of the ice dispenser could be improved. Somehow I always end up with ice on the floor.
- may be having one more shelf would have been nice.
That's about it. Over all no complaints

Great performance & service
We have had our Frigidaire Gallery for about seven months and have been extremely please with its performance. We find that the capacity and interior layout works well for us and that the unit looks great in our kitchen. We had some questions after we purchased the unit and had good feedback from their customer service reps. We would strongly recommend this product.

nothing but problems
Got my firdge 6/4/2013 and have had nothing but problems. The side shelves on the fridge door fell out and ripped the lining. Had to have the entire door replaced. For the last 2 months my cube selection has been stuck on crushed ice. This will require another service call. I just don't know what's going to happen next. It has been a lemon all the way around!

I bought this fridge and the matching range and dishwasher. However, when it arrived the fridge is a completely different color than the other two appliances. I am not sure if the other two have not had a coating put on them or if it is just the direction of the grain. I can't put the fridge and stove next to each other without a noticeable difference.
