Top freezer

I love this refrigerator. The side shelves offer so much space that you have so much more space on the shelves. The ice maker is great. Produces lots of ice and is easy to get to versus the bottom unit freezer. I like the bin with the tall side to catch the ice.The water dispenser is easy to access. The lights inside provide great visibility. I thought I was going to purchase a smaller model but am so glad I purchased this unit. Delivery was perfect.

I am so disappointed! The refrigerator has many pluses - a 33" width, spacious interior, ice maker and filtered water dispenser. However the reason I purchased this unit was because it had such good reviews, some specifically indicating that it was quiet. Unfortunately, this refrigerator is anything but quiet. Whenever the compressor runs - and it runs a lot - there is a loud and very irritating buzzing that can even be heard in the next room. I can drown out the sound by running my dishwasher, exhaust fan or playing music but cannot enjoy peace and quiet for any extended time because of the fridge noise. The ice maker also is loud, but that noise is infrequent and tolerable. I have arranged for the return of this unit. Now comes the difficult job of finding a refrigerator that really is quiet.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.

Lots of room. Consistent temps.


I really have no complaints. For a top freezer, this one is the most bang for your buck.

QUIET,TONS of USABLE Space.GREAT for older homes w/ TIGHT space req.


This Kenmore refridgerator is actually quite amazing in howthey back SOOO much USABLE Space and Cubic ft. out of the old standard fridge opening found in most pre 80's home(33-34" wide and 68" tall).Our old side by side fridge which was here when we bought this place finally died and we were in a rush to get a new one that wasn't a compromise yet fit in our space as we are a few years from a kitchen remodel.The space where the fridge is is the ONLY space it can go due to layout, so we found a few ones at our Clay, NY Sears but this model stood out.From the outside, it looks classy yet unassuming..THEN you open it up and WOW..they packed A LOT of space in this fridge PLUS gave you an icemaker AND a water dispenser INSIDE..GREAT!After having one on theoutside for years, the inside ones are actually a Great idea..Less prone to leaks due to no hoses & wires moving back and forth when you open the door..SMART! PLUS, if you have kids, the outside watter/ ice dispenser was always an annoying (and MESSY) attraction for curious lil hands..PROBLEM SOLVED! Sears/ Kenmore squeezed soo much space out of the size a full fridge actually still looks pretty empty..GREAT so you have space to put things when the holidays, parties or just bring home leftovers is a breeze!Also, this fridge is SUPER quiet, actually it's the quietest fridge we have ever owned.. including Whirlpool Gold we had in our previous home.The new fridge runs more BUT that is normal for the new high efficiency ones.. smaller compressors suck less electricity and run cooler.If you have an older home and have a tigh space for you fridge.. you really can't get any better of a deal than this Kenmore.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Great job Sears/Kenmore for packing more space & smart design than anything out there!

I hate this refrigerator


It's terrible, just plain terrible...

1) Right off the bat two years ago the freezer door wouldn't stay shut when you closed the refrigerator door. There's not enough magnetic pull in the freezer door seal to hold it shut when the fridge door is closed a little too quickly, not fast, and not slamming it shut - just a little too quickly. After a whole series of Sears technicians (probably about 8 different ones) stopped by to tell us we didn't know how to close the refrigerator door properly, I got fed up and added a magnetic latch (I'm an engineer) to the bottom of the freezer door, which has mostly solved the problem.
2) The front dents easily, as it is really thin sheet metal.
3) The refrigerator shelves are too wide in this model to be unsupported like they are in the middle. The front plastic part of the shelves are cracking from stress loads.
4) The door tray shelves have also developed cracks down the middle (not sure why).
5) Just today the plastic handle broke off the refrigerator door, the part you hold on to is a substantial piece of metal, however it bolts to the top of the door with a goofy little plastic bracket.

I've had it two years, and it's doubtful this thing will last like my old Kenmore did (about 12 years). I think it's my last Kenmore, and probably my last appliance I will purchase from Sears as the service is just plain awful these days. Just my two cents, sorry folks.

Top Freezer 24 Cu Ft Refrigerator


I absolutely love our new fridge. Some of the features I like is having the water dispenser inside the fridge rather than on the outside door. I love the LED lighting inside and so much room in the freezer. I also like the feature of if you have the door open too long it starts to beep at you. Also it is so quiet. I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone wanting a freezer on top.r

I love the lighting!


Great refrigerator! Icemaker. Water dispenser on inside left, which I will probably never use.Stainless steel on front of refrigerator, put your magnet collection on the sides of the refrigerator. Fingerprints show on front of refrigerator, get some stainless steel wipe cleaners. Lots of room on door. I miss the egg container, so I bought one. Love the very wide deli/meat drawer, which I put sandwich meat, bacon, cheese, and hotdogs. I put gallon containers on top shelf. Shelving placement is small, so I bought drink holders for the very bottom shelf. I also bought new storage containers for left-overs, which fit well in the small shelving areas. Freezer, lots of door storage. I bought plastic containers to organize frozen foods. Organize your food to keep your refrigerator neat and tidy.

Kenmore top-freezer


I like the freezer up top,and able to place items in, without taking out of carton or fitting into the small compartments on side by side. Love the full width drawer in middle, great viewing of items. Love lights in different placements, also in freezer

Good capacity refrigerator ruined by flaws


We purchased this refrigerator in February 2014. I'm writing this review in August 2014 from a consumer perspective. This fridge fits under those tiny cabinets in older homes meeting the standard 68" height restriction which was our reason for choosing this model. The cubic inch capacity is a bit deceiving, as we had Frigidaire two door side by side model with water dispenser and ice maker in our rental home. There is definitely a huge improvement with this style fridge as there is a larger capacity of space for food and juice items. Noise was not noticeable except once in a while when the ice dispenser worked. Now the bum deal. I had purchased the warranty on this fridge and had put in for service to come out after discovering this fridge repeatedly had an issue with water dripping from the filter area. In the interim I put a plastic cup under the filter to catch the drips. I had to check it frequently to make sure the cup did not run over onto the shelves. The technician came out today and took apart the filter assembly to investigate the issue. Turned out, it had absolutely nothing to do with the filtered water hose or the filter itself. It was condensation building up inside the interior of the filter assembling. I took a look and due to the condensation, there was corrosion happening on the part where the wires were connected, obviously not a good indication. The technician called to get guidance on this issue, and there were other complaints about similar findings. Attempts to seal the housing had failed, and apparently this is a defect due to either inadequate insulation between the cabinets in that area or some other defect. So a wonderful fridge with wonderful details is completely ruined by a defective insulation issue which allows condensation to form in the water dispenser/filter housing and then drip out the rear where the water filter is plugged in. So now, we're going to have to replace our 'perfect' find, which turns out to be defective. Sigh! Heart broken because this was a wonderful choice for our family and quite adequate. :(

Good fridge


Just what we needed perfect for our space and the ice machine and the water in side are a nice extra touch the only complaint I have is it didn't come with a filter.

Great upgrade!


We used the credit from our previous "lemon" Kenmore refrigerator and a "bit" of cash, to upgrade to this model. Great choice! We are very satisfied with the new unit!

Great Fridge!


We wanted a big fridge with built-in water dispenser and icemaker and found this Kenmore fit the bill. Very roomy interior and seems to run much more quietly than the monster supplied by the apartment, which was running all the time. It's working very nicely and should give us many years of service. My only gripes are that Sears was supposed to call us the evening before delivery, but no e-mail or call. The morning of delivery, the team called us with 20 minutes' notice to remove food from old fridge. When the team arrived, they got the fridge in just fine and got it running, but in the process of entry, they broke a light fixture at our front door. Not a big thing but I will send Sears a bill for it if the apartment bills me. That aside, the fridge is wonderful and I'd gladly recommend it to anyone that has the room for this big fridge!

Good Quick Bargain


My older fridge finally died that I use in the garage and I needed a quick replacement. I didn't want anything fancy and this fit perfectly for a decent price, and when it went on sale even further the next week Sears gave me the difference back as well.

Not bad, but not great


I had this unit for 2 weeks now and here is what I found out.

This unit has a lot of space in the freezer and below on the shelves. I was actually surprised at how much space it has.
The ice maker is a bit on the slow side, but I guess for the money, you get what you pay for.
The steel finish get scratched kind of easy.

The real problem with this unit is, the water dispenser. Forget it! It is a really bad--I would even say dumb design. The water comes out slow, which means having to keep the door open a long time if you want to fill something like a bottle or a normal sized cup.

Also, the door is only about an inch over the floor, which means if you are standing in front of the door when opening it, you will wack your toes. I read other complaining about this, but it is not a problem after some adjustment to something new. If you're the kind of person that never learns from your mistakes, then don't bother getting this unit.

Delivered last week; this is potentially the best refrigerator i have ever owned. BUT: 1) when bottom door is closed the freezer door pops open then closes. First tech not able to fix, it has been elevated. 2) Drawers have already cracked; 1 week 3) lighting system is average; their is an easy fix that would cost no additional production cost. 4) icemaker has stopped working, yes 1week. the intake piece of plastic that dispenses water into the tray has frozen. I new how to fix from previous Whirpool Refrigerator that had same problem, but this fix takes approx. 15-30 minutes of my time. I have a tech appt. for next week for this issue. Most likely by then it will freeze up again. I am sure their will be more, but it is only 1 week old...did I already say that? I would recommend only to a "bad" friend. But the real problem is the overall quality for refrigerators at the $1000 price have quality issues. I guess the positive is i did not spend $2000.
