Would buy again

I really like this unit. It has a lot of storage, it is easy to clean and the interior air is a bonus that I never thought about before.
However, there are a few things that I had problems with when I first hooked up the refrigerator. When I plugged in the power, the interiors lights would not come on at all. I eneded up taking the corner covers off to inspect the electrical connections. We had to remove the doors to get it into our house, so I thought maybe I forgot to plug something in. That was not the case. I'm not sure if it just took some time to energize the electrical components, but the lights just all of the sudden started working and have continued to work ever since.
Another thing was when I hooked up the water line and flush the system, I didn;t get anything out of the water nozzle for at least five minutes. Not even the sound of air coming out. So I took the line back off to make sure there was water coming out of the line since the house had sat empty for a while before we bought it and moved in. There was plenty of pressure from the line. When I hooked the line back up to the refrigerator and tried flushing the system again, then I started getting air coming out of the nozzle. It took a good long time (15-20 minutes) to get all of the air out of the system, but once that happened, it has worked beautifully ever since. And the taste of the water is superior to what you can buy at the store.
The last thing that still bothers me is the middle chiller drawer. The bottom of the deli drawer sits on top of what shoul dbe a usable shelf, but it is unmovable. When pulling the drawer out, it actually slides against the top of the drawer below it, so it makes this skretching sound. I tried to take it apart and see if I could move it enough to fix it, but I could only slightly improve it. It still rubs, but not as bad as it did before. I think either this is a design flaw or it was assembled incorrectly.
This is the second Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator we have owned and even with it's flaws is still the best we've owned. If I had to buy it again, I would inspect it better either before leaving the store or before the delivery truck left, but I would definitely buy it again.
