Whoever designed this fridge needs to learn what we plan to put in it! The top shelf is a tight fit for 12 ounce pop/beer cans, and the second shelf won't allow 12 oz cans upright, they must be laid down. And really, who will be putting celery and lettuce in the crisper in this size fridge? That's the first thing to come out.. the crisper drawer! Had I known that the second shelf was nearly useless, I'd have bought something else. About all that will fit on this shelf is butter and maybe sour cream containers. Very disappointing! It IS quiet though! But one more warning... FedEx lays them down in their trucks for God only knows how far. And it says right on the carton: "Do NOT lay down - Keep upright!" So be sure to let it stand at least 24 hours before plugging it in to allow the refrigerant oil to hopefully run back into the compressor rather than in the Freon lines where it doesn't belong.

I was careful in my selection of compact refrigerators...and for the price...well...I could not resist. I am grateful that I am VERY mechanically inclined - the refrigerator door did not close after I took the tape off. I unscrewed the bottom nut and was able to close the door, but I knew I should not have had to do that. As it was, I needed to swap the door direction anyway, so I read the instructions. No detail there. It would have been nice to know that foam covered all holes that the plastic covers did not seat into, and that it was easy enough to clear the foam using a socket drive and the provided screw. When I removed the bottom hinge, I saw the problem with the door and 'fixed' it (the metal plate had been bent out of shape and I bent it straight) - not the most encouraging thing to do to a refrigerator you have not even turned on yet - but the door closed and sealed beautifully! Absolutely no problems with the design. I set the fridge in my designated spot and it is humming away (lightly) and keeps my food cold just like it is supposed to. I figure the chances of someone else getting a refrigerator that does not close are slim. And if one of my friends bought one and it arrived that way - I am a step ahead and am armed with a solution. I really love this refrigerator!

I was getting tired of moochers eating all of my carefully hand-selected groceries so I bought this little gem. Love it and knowing my groceries are safe and there for me when I want to eat is priceless.

I got this item as a gift. I really love it but have one small problem. I have to have orange juice daily per doctor's orders. It is cheaper to buy it by the gallon than any other way. Without removing a shelf I can't keep it inside this item. I removed a shelf but then storage area was limited. Still a great deal for the price.

A great starter fridge/freezer combo. Good for any dorm room, bedroom, or studio apartment. You do get what you pay for though, so make sure you buy fridge/freezer thermometers to go with it. The temperature can fluctuate, and the default temperature rating (4, out of 0-7; the higher the colder it gets) goes into the danger zone (above 40°F for the fridge and above 0°F for the freezer). With an empty fridge and freezer I had to set the temperature rating to 5, and half stocked with food to 6 (I imagine a fully stocked fridge would be alright with the rating at 7). While this isn't ideal it does work, and like I said you get what you pay for. Overall it's a great starter fridge/freezer.

I was excited to get this mini fridge for my daughter's college dorm room and really liked that it has separate refrigerator and freezer compartments. We wanted to test it out before taking it to the dorm and I am glad we did! When we took it out of the box we saw a dent in the door, it was fairly minor and did not affect the functionality just the overall look. The main problem with this fridge is that is it so loud! We had it running in the kitchen and the motor is so loud it drowned out the TV in the living room. It did seem to get cold very quickly and has a lot of space, but we could not overlook the noise level. The manual said that excess noise may be caused if the appliance is not level however we were unable to find any position that made it any quieter. Will take it back today.

For a cheap price you are able to get a pretty decent fridge. The fridge space is a little smaller than I would have liked but that's because it's a 3.1 cubic foot fridge. When I initially plugged it in it didn't get cold at all for over a day so then unplugged and replugged the fridge after 10 minutes and it finally started to cool. Very nice appearance and works just as well as any other mini fridge I have purchased in the past.

Bought this refrigerator for my vacation cabin. The 2-liter bottle holder and the crisper drawer are wastes of space. The unit was quite handy, until it completely stopped working after about only 4 months of use. If I can't get Hamilton Beach to replace it, it will have been a complete waste of money. :(

  • A. Yes, it does have an interior light, but in my case, the top shelf is where I put my soda cans, and they fit so tightly that the light is all but useless. The light is on the right hand side, top shelf, towards the front, with the temperature control. The shelves are not adjustable at all, and the top shelf is the only one that 12oz. cans will fit on standing up. They will not fit on the middle shelf except laying down, and I removed the "crisper" to allow 20+ oz. bottles to stand up. The door shelves are pretty much useless also... As you might guess, this is used for pop and beer ONLY, but not very efficiently!! I do love the separate freezer though, and there is room for one of those big plastic 5 Quart tubs of ice cream and still able to shut the door!!

  • A. The two white plastic parts are to change the direction of the door. The hook in the metal on the bottom of the doors slot into the plastic pieces to lock the doors closed. When you change the direction of the door, the slot needs to be reversed, hence the plastic 'extra' parts. Those two pieces are not necessary if you keep the door in its original 'handing'.
