About - Liebherr CS2062

The Liebherr CS2062 is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, built in refrigerator models like the CS2062 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two refrigerators with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
Customer service follows scripted responses and doesn't attempt to understand the issues. After 2 years with an erratically functioning ice maker I contacted customer service to see if they had ever come up with a fix. Since I was just beyond the 2 year warranty they offered to send me the parts so that I could either repair it myself or pay to have a local service company install. They had previously replaced the initial unit which they couldn't get to work properly after more than 6 months of failed attempts. The replacement unit worked no better than the one it replaced. I repeatedly questioned the service reps as to whether other units were presenting a similar problem and was dishonestly told that ours was the first such encounter.<br />We paid a lot of money and received a terrible product. German engineering is highly over-rated and Liebherr's business scruples are non-existent.<br />I've never been as disappointed with the performance of a product as I am with this one.

Comment:
We have had to have four service calls on this refrigerator in 4 years. The ice maker broke (twice) excess frost in the freezer and finally the refrigerator door handle fell off. Plus when you see the speed of the ice maker you'll know why you never get ice in your drinks while visiting Germany. We were told Liebherr was the BMW of appliances----it our opinion it's more like the Yugo of appliances!!!

Terrible Icemaker

Pros
Easy Access
Cons
Bad Ice Maker
Best Uses
Comment:
All shelves, drawers, etc. are accessible and fully removable with the doors at 90 degrees open. Perfect for installing next to a wall. Icemaker is awful: makes about 10 tiny cubes at a time, not particularly quickly, and the tray is twisted by the mechanism to eject the ice, so after a few years, the tray cracks and the mechanism gives out (and repairs cost in the $600 range.)
