This Whirlpool compact refrigerator is the perfect addition to any dorm or office space. This unit includes 1 full and 1 half slide out glass shelf, as well as a mechanical adjustable thermostat and reversible door. When placing under counters, the suggested distance between the product and the cabinets are: 2" per side, 0.5" on top and 2" on the back.
My nephew needed a fridge for his dorm room for the summer and I wanted to make sure that it was near the max of the allowable size by the University he attends (4 cu. feet). This fit the bill nearly to a tee and at a decent price. I ordered it for pick-up from the Target near his school and we picked it up this afternoon. I was wary of the other reviews noting that there was cosmetic damage to the fridge upon receipt and inspected the one received and grateful that there were no issues...until we went and set it up. There are some adjustable legs on the fridge that can help level the fridge and prevent it from wobbling. There was a very apparent wobble and I went to adjust the legs only to find one of the legs severely bent and almost screwed in at a 45 degree angle. We needed to make due with what we had because he needed the fridge and I didn't want to return it and wait another 5 days for a replacement.
Given the other reviews, it is apparent that the packaging on this unit does not protect its contents adequately. In no way would Whirlpool allow such defects of their products to leave their factories as is (or would they?). Packaging at the manufacturer ought to be redesigned to prevent damage, albeit cosmetic, to reach the customers. Caveat emptor.
Order in person if you care about how this fridge looks. It’s clear that this fridge was previously returned, repackaged and resold as if brand new. Came with a hideous dent in the back and flimsy packaging. There’s no way whirlpool packaged this item. What a disappointment .
