Looking to Buy a Fridge Not Made in China

Hi all,

Looking to buy a fridge/freezer that is not made in CHINA or CHINESE owned ie: Fisher and Paykel

Any ideas?



  • LG. Made in Indonesia or Korea.

    That wasn't hard.


  • Hitachi made in Thailand (cheaper models) or Japan (expensive ones).

  • Samsung refrigerators are made in South Korea, Germany, China, Hungary, South Africa, Luxemburg, Sweden, and India.

    According to Google, that is.

    This page seems to have a bit of info: https://www.canstarblue.com.au/appliances/appliance-country-...

    • That's doesn't mean it's made in originated country. Then again parts of every appliances made in different country, just as cars.

      • If you click on any of the companies, it gives you a bit more information. For example:

        LG’s primary production vendor for fridges and washers is stated to be in the Indian sub-continent.

        Samsung’s Washer Dryer combos and fridges are said to be manufactured in South Korea.

        Sharp: Some of its microwave ovens and fridges are said to be manufactured in Thailand and China.

        Westinghouse: While some products are stated to be manufactured in Australia, including its ovens, others are imported from Europe, China and South-East Asia. In particular, some fridges are claimed to be from Thailand and some dishwashers from Turkey.

        • That information is quite vague to the point of being unhelpful. For example Westinghouse hasn't made fridges in Australia since 2016.

          Last Australian-made fridge is end of the line for regional manufacturer

          The OP can probably find the actual country of manufacture for the specific models they are looking at from the brand's website, sellers website or from a label on the fridge if shopping in store. That was the case for me when I bought a fridge last year.

          • @trongy: The link literally does not claim that Westinghouse fridges are made in Australia. Only “some products”, including ovens.

            Of course if this is important to people they need to do their own research. But this was what OP asked without doing their own research, and I got this from a simple google search.

  • Electrolux made in Australia, not sure if it's still tho

  • Can’t go past a Mitsubishi, made in Japan

  • Looking for how to search on Google.

    Any ideas?

  • Liebherr Fridge - designed and manufactured in Germany
    If they can make an 800 tonne excavator they sure as hell can make a 500 litre fridge.

    Pretty much my dream fridge. (if you ever could have one).

    • Without having looked it up or knowing anything about it beyond your comment. I'm going to take a wild wild guess that their fridge costs upward of an arm and a leg.

    • Hyundai makes ships. If they can make a 230000 GT container ship then they sure as hell can make the world's best 500 litre fridge.

      Just because someone can make something big doesn't automatically make them an expert in making something smaller.

    • I found a site which has cosmetic imperfections on Liebherr fridges, excellent savings. Will investigate further.

  • ie: Fisher and Paykel

    Dont you mean e.g. (rather than i.e.) F&P or are you singling them out specifically for some reason?

  • Miele -made in Germany
