EXCELLENT FOR THE MONEY

I moved and wanted another counter-depth refrigerator to replace my 10 year old Kenmore, which was made by Frigidaire and no longer comes in white. This one is made by LG for Kenmore. This one improves upon the old in several areas: lighting, door panel with door ajar warning, a handy ice-maker in the door with a removable bucket and a bigger water/ice area for larger cups. Also, it has smooth white handles not those textured ones that you can't clean. It does not hold my stuff as efficiently as the old, which was also 21cu ft, but I couldn't find a better unit anywhere near the price of this one. If you can use stainless, check out the Frigidaire version sold by Sears, but if you want white/counter-depth on a budget this is in my opinion the only game in town.

Not the quality of a Kenmore I expected

Purchased this as a replacement for an 18-year old Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator. Delivery and set up went quite well but the first thing I noticed was the loud noise it made when the icemaker is filling with water. The noise it makes is loud enough to drown out the volume of the TV. Also, this refrigerator was missing the charcoal filter for the air cleaner and it looked like it came like that from the factory. I confirmed this when I called the service number and was informed that a technician would have to perform the installation. This and the noise from the icemaker was the deciding factor in returning and exchanging this refrigerator. A disappointing experience with the "new" Kenmore.

Quite loud. Not just the ice maker, compressor too

|

Other reviews have talked about this refrigerator being loud, but a lot of them sounded like they were talking about the ice maker and/or dispenser specifically, which are, in fact loud. But the compressor is also quite loud, and has a set of noises, one of which was high-pitched and annoying enough that I genuinely considered sending the thing back. But I have a kitchen with an annoying and shallow refrigerator nook, and all the rest of my appliances are white and I don't want to replace all of them, so I had few options and this was more or less the least bad one.

I ended up lining the refrigerator nook with speciality sound-dampening panels - I have a recording studio, so I have some knowledge in this sort of thing - and that got it down to a reasonable level while preserving adequate airflow. (I also added a chimney in the back of the overhead cabinets, which will help quite a lot in general.) I managed to kill the high-pitched ring entirely, but it's _still_ louder than the 18-year-old GE it replaced (and which is no longer made). But... I can live with it.

I should say that it's not the loudest new refrigerator I've ever had. I manage commercial property and have dealt with quite a few. But it's definitely on the louder end, noise-wise.

I like the ice maker, though. Better than the one in the old fridge, and the freezer is pretty roomy. It should come with one more shelf than it does, though.

LOVE it! Wish I could give it 100 Stars!

Have had it for 10 months in White. I don't have a problem with hearing the ice or water, it is NOT loud, the ice maker is on the door which saves room in the freezer. Get over it. It runs quiet! I love the acceler-ice option to make more cubes faster, the cubes are like 1" pyramids not half moons, it also makes crushed ice. The interior is so well lit, like a showcase, I can see everything in the bins without opening them. The smooth finish is so easy to clean. The counter depth is perfect & I like the curve of the front rather than flat, it looks more modern. It holds so much, and gallons on the door. We have 5 people here right now and so far it holds everything we need. (I usually am the only one here, and it gets pretty empty looking). I love the side by side, I had a top freezer before and stuff kept falling out. This is by far the best unit I have ever had in my 70 years. If I ever move, this is going with me if it is no longer available. Can't say enough about it. LOVE it!

Good so far

I like this fridge a lot. I'm so glad it's a counter depth so it fits so much better than deeper ones. I hope it runs for many years with no problems cause it's hard to say when I just got it a week ago.

A good value in a counter depth model

|

Home kitchen use. The large ice hopper is appreciated as is the counter depth dimension. Fits better then the standard model it replaced. On time delivery too!
