Previously, we had a Whirlpool refrigerator with an in-the-door ice maker and, for the most part, we loved it. It jammed up frequently, but we could always fix it. It made copious amounts of ice and we hardly ever ran out, even when we had big parties. Unfortunately, it only lasted about seven years. When it came time to replace it, we knew we wanted another in-the door ice maker, so we chose this model. Here is my rundown on all the features: Appearance: Very attractive, slightly curved front and sturdy handles Space: Both the freezer and the refrigerator feel spacious. The door compartment of the refrigerator is really large and it can hold gallon sized jugs of orange juice. The shelves are not adjustable, but I really like the placement. I like that a couple of the shelves have lots of space for tall items and a couple are low for shorter items. The drawers seem very roomy and can hold a lot compared to the Whirlpool. Lighting: It took a little getting used to the LED lights. They have a bluish tint and they sort of "fade in" when you open the door. I like them now, but it was a little weird at first. Water Dispenser: It seems like we get a nice stream of water, although it's a little far forward since there is only one dispenser button for ice and water. You have to remember to select which thing you want. Also, if someone happens to open the refrigerator while you are getting a glass of water (which happens a lot in our busy house) the water turns off. We still aren't used to that. Ice maker: Because the ice maker is in the door, there is a lot of freezer room. We still haven't filled it up and we've had the refrigerator for about three months now. The biggest downside is the ice cubes themselves. They are tiny! And it only makes about 8 cubes at a time. We never have enough ice, even when we use the "acceler-ice" setting, which is supposed to speed up the process. We really considered returning it for a different model, but in the end we decided to deal with it. All in all, this is a beautiful unit, but if you need a lot of ice, I recommend you choose a different model
We've owned this refrigerator for less than 2 years (about 18 months). For the first year, it was great and we didn't have any problems. And then things started to go south. First the ice maker and water dispenser stopped working. We replaced the water filter as recommended but that didn't seem to help. Next we noticed that the temperature in the refrigerator was much too cold, even when turned up to the warmest setting. Things on the middle shelf would freeze, even when moved to the front of the shelf. We rearranged all of the food to make sure that the airflow between the fridge and freezer was good, but that didn't help. Now the temperature in the freezer constantly fluctuates. One minute it will be so warm that the ice cream is nearly melted, then 30 minutes later I'll check and the ice cream will be rock solid. It doesn't seem to matter what I set the freezer temperature to, this continues to be a problem at any setting. I would expect much better from an appliance that cost almost $1200 when we purchased it. Unfortunately we will not be purchasing another Kenmore appliance in the future. The quality definitely isn't what it used to be.
What else do you need to know. Was a bit noisy but okay before that. Expensive filter needed every 3-6 months. for $40 at least.
Ice kept getting stuck, then stopped making ice, fixed that ourselves, but now it won't dispense the ice! It's not quite four years old. Repair man says the only option the manufacturer has for the issue is replace the entire door! We're going to suffice dispensing ice, at least the water still works. Lesson learned: Buy the extended warranty!
Price dropped $200 just days after I after I had this refrigerator delivered. Sears refused to refund the difference. Bad business regardless of the reason.
