Very Nice but Not Much Ice

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 Will Not Purchase Another Kenmore Appliance

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.

Do Not Buy


Let me tell you about this refrigerator. We bought it a little over a year ago. The ice maker has had to be worked on more than 5 times by a repairman from sears and it still does not work properly. It produces ice now, but it now leaks additional water into the ice and makes one large chuck.  The right side door plastic at the top is breaking apart and guess what since it is a few months out of warranty sears will not repair it. The door is literally falling off the the fridge. We are going to attempt to glue it. BTW the door is $599 to replace it yourself. This will be my last purchase with sears.

wrong side color and damaged at right bottom


We just received our new stainless steel ref-stove-dishwasher -everything has black sides except the refrigerator which is grey -they didn't show the sides online only the front-since the stove and microwave was black with front stainless I thought they were all like that,until it arrived,its damaged at the bottom and I already called and let them know and was told it would be exchanged for the right one and one not damaged,we hooked everything up and my wife said if you all would rather give us 200.00 off we would just keep it or when they bring the other one they will have to wait until everything is out of this one,The delivery guy seen the damage and i told him to take it back and he said if I take that back I have to take it all Back and I said but theres nothing wrong with the others,he said it dont matter,I already had the stove and dishwasher in the Garage,so he said just keep it and take it up with you,He would not wait for me to call you,Dont seem to be a very Polite person at all,Thank you Mr.Barber

Ice maker can't keep up


So far, we love the refrigerator part- easy access, adjustable shelves. The icemaker, not so much. Large family of six exhausts the icemaker EVERY DAY. So annoying! Why buy a huge family sized refrigerator when the ice making capacity is so pathetic? Cannot recommend

I purchased the fridge and had an issue within the first year with the fridge freezing food and the ice line freezing. The builder had installed it two months after the purchase date, so when I tried to get it covered under warranty, I was a few days over the warranty date, even though I had only used it for 2 months. I usually can use a hair dryer to defrost the line but it's not working now. I cannot get water to come out of the dispenser. It also doesn't keep up with ice production. I am so unhappy with the fridge. I don't have money to have a repair person come out and charge me $400 and I don't have money for a new fridge. I shouldn't have these problems and I can see from reviews that others have the same issue.
