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.
I ordered this refrigerator online on the 15th and it was due to be deliv delivered today between 3:15 & 5:15. Needless to say, no call and no refrigerator. We called the online number and was told they were on their way (this was at 6:00) anf we were next. At 8:20, I called again only to be told that it comes from my local Sears and I'd have to call them. I call and they are closed, so, no refrigerator and it's 9:08!
I absolutly hate this frig. Besides the fact they dropped it during delivery, my frig freezes my eggs and just about everything on the top and 2nd shelf. the bottom shelf barely gets cold. When I purchased the frig, they sold me a 329.99 warranty. He said they would call and come out and check everything out to make sure it is working correctly Yeah right still waiting on that phone call he said I would get
Less than 1 year into owning this refrigerator the ice maker went out. 4 going on 5 service calls and it is still not working right. In a **** poor attempt to fix the issue additional electrical issues came up. I can not stress stay away from this product enough because you can not count on the manufacture, Sears or Sears Home Services to fix it.
Needed to replace a 20 year old Kitchenaide side by side and was shocked by prices - looked at this Kenmore after visiting several stores and physically comparing quality/features.
First off this unit is huge inside while exterior height allowed it to fit in existing space - only Whirlpool built units could do this in a 26 cu.ft. Size which needed for big family.
Quiet - amazingly so in that you can’t even hear it from adjacent living room - yes older unit was louder so maybe unfair to say,but read a few reviews on here that said it was loud and could not disagree more.
Well lit interior with crisp appearance in both fridge and freezer - ice maker in door saves space while preventing teens from sticking hands into bin - have never run out of ice like some reviews say and just had a large family gathering yesterday as well - ice capacity definitely less than old fridge but no issue and more freezer space makes this right.
Clean exterior design and does not seem to attract fingerprints - handle sticks out so you gravitate towards that when opening/touching.
All in all 6 months after purchase everything we needed in a refrigerator that just works well, feels solid (bins are lightweight but totally functional as set up at factory) and was a tremendous value on sale.
