In Harmony with Nature

Blomberg understands living well also means living intelligently and responsibly. It’s a distinction that earned us the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellece award in 2020 for a second year in a row. Featuring innovative technology that safeguards your food and ensures maximum freshness, our ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators also conserve energy, save money, and help protect the planet. The ultimate in eco-friendly engineering, Blomberg refrigerators are built with 99.9% lead-free materials, 100% free from ozone-depleting greenhouse gases, and manufactured with 85% recyclable components.

Duo Cycle Cooling

Ingenious Blomberg refrigerators are equipped with advanced multi-cycle, no-frost, silent cooling technology. Independently zoned and controlled cooling systems maintain even air temperature and humidity in separate freezer and fresh-food compartments, delivering enhanced food preservation and maximum energy efficiency. No air transfer between compartments means food in the freezer section freezes faster, items in the refrigerator stay fresher longer, and odors don’t circulate.

Blue Light Technology

Exclusive Blomberg Blue Light Technology represents a breakthrough in keeping fruits and vegetables fresh and juicy long after they’re picked. Continuous blue light rays illuminate the crisper and allow the natural process of photosynthesis to continue, prolonging storage life and preserving natural flavors, colors, textures, and nutrients.

Ion Fresh

This exceptional Blomberg technology simulates a natural process to bring pure freshness to your kitchen. By producing negative ions inside the refrigerator, Ion Fresh captures and neutralizes airborne bacteria, odor-causing microbes, and ethylene gas, extending the life of fresh fruits and vegetables and keeping circulated air clean and fresh smelling.

Digital Display

Blomberg refrigerators feature bright, accessible digital displays that simplify programming and put you in control of performance.

Automatic Ice Machine

Blomberg Automatic Ice Maker can generate 6 pounds of ice per day, avoiding the need to fill old-fashioned ice trays by hand.


Featured in certain Blomberg refrigerators, this versatile chrome bottle holder suspends from a shelf to provide convenient extra storage. Ideal for chilling wine or keeping tall bottles of cold water on hand, this practical accessory makes the most of every inch of space

Interior LED lighting

Never forget what’s in the refrigerator again! Blomberg brilliantly illuminates every corner with white LED lights for better aesthetics and less energy consumption.


Depth is with door / without handles.

30" Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice maker issue I bought this refrigerator a couple of weeks ago and have issues with the ice maker. I have the recommended temperature setting in the freezer however the ice maker is dripping water into the tray . It does make ice also however the cubes are stuck to the block of ice in the tray. After looking at all these complaints for the ice maker I would not recommend this refrigerator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty fridge I first bought a Maytag and I hated it! Couldn’t get anything to fit inside the fridge. Not even a bottle of soda. It was super frustrating. I was able to return it to the dealer and after going to 6 different stores, I saw this fridge. I was a bit apprehensive about the bottom freezer because I had never had one before. It can sometimes be a challenge to get stuff in there and I have been limiting what I buy to fit in the freezer. I would give it more stars for that reason. I also don’t have the water line for the ice maker so that is wasted space. I’ve tried reaching out to the company a couple times to see if I could remove the ice maker, but they haven’t responded. Also, the Maytag was sooooo noisy, and this one is super quiet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blomberg response-"we care" - but they don't So -- I wrote a one-star review, and someone my review is noted as "yes" I'd recommend this product. That is NOT true. I would not recommend this product to anyone, and I see I'm not alone in my ice maker issues. Upon submission of my review I received an automated "we want to help, please send an email to . . . " email. So I did. That was a week ago, and since then - nothing. So it looks good that they respond to negative reviews, but they don't REALLY respond to negative reviews. Apparently their "concern" is all for show".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sporadically makes a loud noise I really like the refrigerator overall - it's spacious feeling for it's smaller size, is very quiet most of the time, and keeps a great temperature. I particularly like the drawers in the freezer; it's wonderfully organized. One problem that I'd really like to resolve, and others here have mentioned it, there's a disruptive, loud noise about once a day. It's loud enough to wake a sleeping baby. It seems from other comments that it's tied to the ice maker (not connected) ---- how can I turn that off????

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice Maker broke after 2 months 2 months in and my ice maker just dumps water in the tray. This product should be recalled given how many people have this same problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME REFRIGERATOR! We purchased this from Joe D's appliances in Fairfield NJ January 2019. It has all the bells and whistles needed. We love the one liter racks to hold the bottles of water or wine. Lighting & temperature gauges as well as door opening indicator are extremely helpful. The stainless does NOT show any fingerprints & there have been no issues with performance. This is a great price point for a wonderful refrigerator for small apartments or homes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ice Maker Doesn't Work As with many other reviews here, my ice maker has a mind of it's own. It works sometimes and other times it doesn't. It last worked a few months ago and then suddenly quit. The user guide is absolutely useless. There are no tutorials anywhere to help troubleshoot. It's 2 years old. The ice make worked for less than a year. Otherwise, a good fridge, but if you want ice...don't buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ice maker and defrosting issues!! This refrigerator was part of the appliances already installed in my new condo. We had a repair person in because it wasn't defrosting properly, and there was water and ice everywhere it shouldn't be. The repairperson came, defrosted the fridge, and worked on clearing out the water tube. Seemed all was ok. T hen two months later, same thing -- water everywhere. Add to that, the ice maker stopped working. It made a horrendous banging noise which I recorded -- it lasted 45 seconds and happened every hour or so until we were able to figure out how to turn off the ice maker. (Couldn't find instructions ANYWHERE on how to do this. The repair person turned it off for us. It's on the temperature panel. :-( ). Then a plastic piece of the ice maker broke off. Very disappointed. I thought this was an upscale brand. But apparently not. Need a new fridge!!! Don't recommend Blomberg AT ALL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from *Update to my previous review Bob from Blomberg sent me instructions along with his contact info on how to turn off our ice machine. It worked! Could not be happier with our new fridge!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice I was very limited in size needed to replace my refrigerator. I saw this and really liked the freezer set up with drawers. Now having it in the house for almost 2 months I really do like the design and usefulness. There are little tweaks that could be done to make it a little more space efficient but overall I really am satisfied!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but keeps filling with ice I have had this for about 4-5 years and recently the bottom of the freezer (the part under the drawers) fills with ice and I have to chisel it out each week. The door closes properly and the seals are all intact There is an Ice maker but we do not use nor do we have a water line to the refrigerator. It is very frustrating!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice maker busted in less than 14 months Ice maker is busted. Loud noises. I’ve had this thing for less than a 15 months. I had to pay 100 bucks for the service man to tell me the ice maker is the problem. Another 75 to replace it. There are no clear instructions on how to turn ice maker off. Based on other reviews, it’s clear that this hardware is flawed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from terrible ice maker My fridge is only a few months old - and the ice bin keeps just filling with water and freezing into a block of ice. We got crazily complicated directions to “reduce the fill time” but that didn’t work. And there’s no way to turn the ice maker off!!! Your user manual is completely inadequate. Help!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from love the fridge the ice-maker stopped 6 months The fridge was delivered with a broken door shelf/bin and 1 screw missing for the door handle we waited 2 months for those pieces, also complaint as others 6 months in and ice maker stopped working, water just runs then freezes into a block and runs all over the fridge

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice Maker Doesn't Work Properly I've had this for less than a week and already the ice maker does not work properly. It pour water into the ice bin so that it is a sheet of ice rather than cubes. The whole reason I bought this refrigerator is because I wanted a 30" fridge with an ice maker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice Maker failed 3 times in 3 years 1. In May 2017, we bought a new-build condo which came with a new Blomberg refrigerator. All 5 units in the condo were new, and all 5 had the same Blomberg refrigerator installed. 2. By October 2017, our icemaker had stopped working -- it made a loud knocking noise every few hours, and the ice came out in a big block. The refrigerator was still under warranty, so we had it repaired and a new icemaker installed. 3. By March 2018, the icemaker had stopped working again. And it had stopped working in ALL 5 UNITS IN OUR CONDO. Again, because it was under warranty, all 5 units had their icemaker replaced. We were told that the water pressure in our building was higher than standard, and the timing in the water refill dispenser had to be lowered to account for the higher water pressure. 4. In December 2020, the icemaker has now failed a third time. But our refrigerator is no longer under warranty, and we were told we would have to pay for repairs. I am very disappointed in the Blomberg refrigerator, and would buy it if given the choice

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Except Ice Maker Doesn't work This unit is brand new less than one year old. It worked amazingly at first then after about 2 months the ice maker stopped working. Now there is just a giant block of ice in the ice tray. I can't not get any help anywhere to fix this. Please Help

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ice maker problems Like many others in this review forum I am also having ice maker problems. We just get a large block of ice. This has only started happening after a long power outage. I loved the normal sized ice cubes when I had them, I want them back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Underperformer Ice maker is a disaster. Loud clicking noises when this lemon is plugged in. Water spills into the freezer creating a giant ice block. Buyer beware! This was sold with rave reviews and never came close to expectations.
