Frigidaire makes a variety of different refrigerator models. Each of them comes with a limited warranty. You can extend the warranty by taking advantage of the Total Appliance Protection plan.


Key insights

  • Frigidaire refrigerators come with a one-year limited warranty.
  • Frigidaire’s Total Appliance Protection plan can extend the warranty up to five years for an additional cost.
  • Repairs must be completed by a Frigidaire technician.

Frigidaire refrigerator warranty coverage and plans

Frigidaire refrigerator warranties last for one year, though this can vary (check the “Refrigerator Use & Care” booklet that came with your fridge for specific warranty details on your model).

The company will repair or replace defective materials and workmanship through the limited warranty.

You can get an extended warranty for your Frigidaire refrigerator through the company’s Total Appliance Protection plan. You can choose a one-, two-, three- or five-year plan.

Regardless of whether you stick with the one-year limited warranty or opt for the Total Appliance Protection plan, you must have your appliance serviced by a Frigidaire-approved repair technician.

Limits and exclusions

Like many refrigerator manufacturers, Frigidaire has many limitations and exclusions in its warranties. These can make the company deny your service claim. The warranty doesn’t cover:

  • Breakage not due to normal wear and tear
  • Refrigerators without the original serial numbers
  • Units with ownership that transferred to someone outside the U.S. or Canada
  • Rusty units
  • Repairs or replacement of water filters, air filters, lightbulbs, knobs and handles
  • Scratches

The company also doesn’t cover any surcharges for after-hour, weekend or holiday service calls or mileage expenses for service calls.

Frigidaire refrigerator warranty discounts

You can get a 10% discount on the Total Appliance Protection plan if you purchase coverage for multiple appliances.

How to register a Frigidaire refrigerator warranty

To register your refrigerator, you’ll need your receipt to find the date of purchase. You also need to know the model and serial number. You can find the model and serial number on the inside wall of your refrigerator on the right side. 

Once you’ve gathered all your information, you can submit your registration by filling out and mailing the registration card that came with your fridge, or you can fill out the online registration form.

Frigidaire refrigerator warranty cost

The manufacturer’s warranty comes with your Frigidaire refrigerator. The cost of a Total Appliance Protection plan varies based on the type of refrigerator you have and the time you bought it.

For a new, single-door refrigerator that costs $900, we were quoted around $100 for one year of coverage. Terms ranged from one to five years, with the five-year plan costing around $345. We also got a quote for a new French door model that costs $2,000. One year of coverage would cost around $135 for one year and around $470 for a five-year plan.

How to file a claim for your Frigidaire refrigerator

To file a claim for your Frigidaire refrigerator, call the customer service helpline at 800-374-4432. This number will get you help whether you have a manufacturer warranty or an extended warranty.

Frigidaire refrigerator warranty vs. home warranty alternatives

A refrigerator can last up to 13 years, and repairs can cost anywhere from $200 to $400. Even if you get the extended warranty for your Frigidaire refrigerator, you’ll be on the hook for any repairs after the maximum of five years. This is where a home warranty can come in handy.

A home warranty can cover repairs for longer than a limited warranty or extended warranty. Another perk is that these warranties cover a wide range of appliances and systems in your home. The downside is that you’ll need to pay a deductible before a service tech can visit your home.

Pros and cons of Frigidaire refrigerator

While a Frigidaire refrigerator warranty covers parts and workmanship for one year, it has a lot of downsides due to its limiting terms. Getting an extended warranty can add years to the coverage.

Still, unlike other extended warranty plans other brands offer, the Total Appliance Protection plan doesn’t offer many perks other than that the company will reimburse you for any food spoilage up to $250.

    FAQ

    What is a Frigidaire refrigerator warranty?

    Frigidaire refrigerators come with a limited warranty. This means the company will repair or replace defective parts in your refrigerator for a limited time. You can find your limited warranty information in the “Refrigerator Use & Care” booklet that came with your appliance.

    How long is a warranty on a Frigidaire refrigerator?

    Most Frigidaire refrigerators come with a one-year limited warranty, but be sure to check your fridge’s documentation. The company also sells extended warranties that can increase your warranty to up to five years.

    What is Frigidaire’s customer service information?

    Bottom line

    The one-year limited warranty and extended warranty of Frigidaire refrigerators provide little coverage outside certain parts and situations. While they do cover many internal parts, the warranty doesn’t cover scratches, rust and accessories. Plus, you must use a company-approved technician if you don’t want to risk voiding the warranty.
