I just saw a white Whirlpool version of this fridge on CL recently.  It appears to be newer, like mid-'80s (we had a SxS model with identical handles), and is $275 cheaper.

Sears Coldspot

with Sundberg Ferrar designed trim and handles. You could order any theme you wanted, and they even would put your name on it.

My Aunt had a Sandburg Ferrar Coldspot French door refrigerator from 1966 when her house was built, it had copper tone sides but the front doors looked like paneling and it had black barn door hinges on the 2 refrigerator doors. It was a cool refrigerator in its day. I remember my Aunt always complaining that she had to bend to get stuff out of the freezer but she loved that the vegetable pans were waist high in the fresh food section, so 2 years later when we moved my parents opted to go with an avocado GE bottom freezer with a pull out drawer. Our GE lasted longer than my Aunts Coldspot, she had to replace it in 1982, and we replaced ours in 1986, but ours was still running, we gave it to a neighbor for his garage.

My Coldspot Twindor Cupboard lasted 33 years. I currently have a Whirlpool Mark XII french door bottom freezer that I bought in 1988. Have not had any serious problems with it.

How did the French doors seal in the middle on these models? 


I'm not enthused by modern French door fridges because of the clunky center sealing systems they employ.

They had overlapping gaskets. No clunky baffle. I never replaced any gaskets.

Thanks John.  That was a better system (in terms of door action) than the modern day types have (which I assume might ensure a more positive seal).

My friend Glenna D. had one of those. The cabinet was white, with woodgrain "French Provincial" look doors. I don't remember it saying anything about Sundberg Ferer on it, though.
