Excellent Fridge

Prior to purchasing this fridge I was nervous about a couple of the reviews and thus far have been thrilled. The most common complaints I read were related to the ice maker and the noise of the fridge. In regards to the ice maker, it appears full at basically all times. We hosted a football game watch for ten people with that being our only ice supply, and it was about half full after the party. In regards to the noise, I think that this has been over blown. If there is literally no other noise in the house you can occasionally hear the compressor running in the fridge. However if my two year old is playing in the other room, or a television is on in the family room you cannot hear the fridge running itself. Overall we have been very pleased with this fridge, it was the only counter size fridge that would fit in the space in my kitchen and for the price it cannot be beat! I would recommend this fridge to everyone!

I would buy a kenmore refrigerator again from sears


it was a perfect fit. and the 21 cu. ft. was well proportioned within the freezer and refrigerator so far we're very pleased with our purchase. Let"s see how long it last before any problems start of use 2-27-2018.

Worst appliance I have ever owned.


I've owned this fridge for a little over two years. It seemed like a good fridge for a while. The first problem we had was when the ice maker stopped working. the Sears repair guy came out and discovered that the wiring harness that feeds into the bottom of the door had rubbed against the plastic parts on the door and frayed. After about the third time he came out to fix this, he basically admitted that Kenmore products are complete junk. I've had to repair the frayed wires on my own now about a dozen times. Take it from an engineer; this is a serious design flaw. I don't know how this hasn't shocked someone or burned down a house. In between all this, the lights in the fridge started strobing. This required a $90 control module replacement to fix. I will never buy another Kenmore product again and I will never spend another dime at Sears.

Too Small For Me


The refrigerator is nice but I didn't realize how short the shelves in the freezer would be. It's not deep at all, which I knew from the measurements but I didn't realize the depth would be so short. On the third shelf, you can barely fit a pack of hot pockets, that's how short it is. The other thing I don't like is how they built a piece on the inside ceiling of the fridge. It prevents you from putting medium size bottles on the top shelf, you have to slide the to the side and then push them to the back. This takes away space. I would not suggest this fridge for a family. It's good for people who do not need to purchase a lot of food. And make sure you don't block the air flow on the top shelf with items because it causes your food to freeze. I didn't know this until my food on the second shelf would freeze and I had ice crystals on the shelf. I called the repair service and they told me I can't have things blocking the air flow device on the top shelf. This fridge fits my small kitchen but I miss my bigger one. I have another refrigerator in our laundry room that I use as a back-up. I would recommend this refrigerator to people who do not have a family and for those who do light shopping.

Missing features


Just received this refrigerator. Comes with two shelves missing. Cost $200 to order them.
Does not display actual temperature, just temperature setting.

Otherwise appears to be working fine.
