GREAT Refrigerator! I'm Very Pleased.

When I first purchased this refrigerator, I was taking a chance because there weren't any reviews. All I knew was that I had pretty good luck with Kenmore products in the past. I've had this refrigerator for about two months and I'm really happy with this purchase. When it was first delivered, I wasn't too sure that I'd made the right decision because the refrigerator made several 'sounds' that I hadn't heard in my Samsung. After about a week of continuous operation, those little annoying sounds all disappeared. And it wasn't that I'd gotten used to them, they have disappeared and are no more. I was reading a review on another brand and the person was told by a repairman that the noises would stop once their refrigerator worked out all of the kinks of being brand new and this one has done the same. The space is simply great. I replaced a 26 cu. ft. refrigerator with this one and CAN tell the difference. The shelves seem much deeper. And the freezer is pretty large too. Features - One of the reviewers said that the refrigerator does not have crushed ice and that's simply not true. I'm not sure which refrigerator that reviewer was referring to, but this one has cubed and crushed ice and they're clearly marked on the front of the refrigerator. Another thing that I like about the refrigerator that Sears does not even mention in the description is that several of the shelves pull out about 6 inches so that you can reach items that you've placed in the rear. That is a great feature that I just happened to 'discover' one day while looking inside of the refrigerator. Appearance - The refrigerator is very pretty. I know that sounds weird, but it really is a good looking appliance. The stainless steel is so shiny and clean and simply looks great, but it does show fingerprints very easily; however, that's an easy fix. I purchased a stainless steel clearer/polish and use it about twice a week or as needed and the refrigerator still looks brand new. The polish also prevents fingerprints. It's a great product and came from one of the big box stores. The refrigerator seems to be very well built and should last for years to come. And fortunately for me, I bought it in early November when it was offered at an unbelievably GREAT price. It was literally a 'steal'. I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone. Thus far, it has been a great purchase and I'm very, very happy with it.

Junk - Don't buy this Refrigerator!!

We purchased this refrigerator in November 2014, within 3 months the ice maker starts making this loud noise, similar to the sound of a weed eater. You could hear it through the whole house! Still under the warranty, we had Sears come out to fix it, they fix it, then it starts making the noise again. Long story short - they came out 4 or 5 times, then a couple of months go by and the noise starts again! But this time it's one month after the one year warranty is up. I called Sears and they won't fix it, spent hours on the phone with them and they refused to fix it under the warranty and also wanted to charge me a $115 diagnostic fee to see what was wrong with it. Really? You come out multiple times and you still don't know? As you can imagine, I was/still am furious, I feel like I was scammed and we don't have the extra money to deal with this. So we lived with this noise a couple more months then all of a sudden, the ice maker just stopped working. So to sum up, Sears came out multiple times, never fixed it (honestly I feel like they put a band-aid on it to make it work through the one year date so they could then charge me to fix it or try to convince me to buy their extended warranty), and after 15 months of owning it, the ice maker doesn't even work! I never leave reviews like this, but if I can help just one buyer out there then I have done a good thing. Please buyers out there - read these reviews, I am not the only one saying this, don't buy this refrigerator and don't buy from Sears. Sears is just not the same store as it used to be.

I'll never buy Sears again


The cooling motor for the ice maker is directly behind the ice tray. This causes ice to build up in the cooling motor.  This causes the motor to no longer work. So the ice maker is rendered useless. Service charges an amazingly high price for repair and insurance for a defective product. I'll never buy from Sears ever again. I absolutely hate Sears.

Ice maker doesn't work


Ice maker hasn't worked since day one. Service tech came out 10 days later and said he couldn't find anything. I still don't have an ice maker. We have to go and buy bags of ice. I should've listened to the reviews that complained about the ice maker.

Great Fridge...LOUSY ICE MAKER!


We bought this for the french doors. The fridge supplies a great deal of space and the freezer is fine, but the ice maker and cold? filtered water are a joke. The cubes are very small and it never catches up on the use. There are only two of us in the house and it doesn't make enough ice. We have to buy ice and keep the hopper filled. Then the filter water is barely cooled as it comes out.
Not sure about this one.

I have had Sears repairmen out more than FIFTEEN times for this refrigerator. The icemaker has broken for the 4th time now, and right now it's making a banging noise. It is horribly noisy (I hear it on my 2nd floor), the icemaker shuts down and leaks water all over my floor, I've had the icemaker replaced, the motherboard replaced, the damper replaced, etc.. I've taken countless days off work waiting for repair guys. Sears has FINALLY agreed to give me a buy back so I can purchase something else. It will NOT be a Kenmore, that's for sure.

Run Away


Same ice maker issue as the others. 5th Repairman finally busted the refrigerant line spraying R134a into the kitchen. Sears finally condemned it and offered to replace it with an identical model. I refused. Offered store credit, I refused, just want a refund and Sears refused. Store won't take it back, says it has hazardous materials in it! But it's okay to leave it in my house. Worst appliance experience ever. Replaced a 15 year Kenmore that never needed a repair. Sears has failed miserably. Asked to have them come an get the refrigerator and they could keep the store credit, they scheduled a Saturday pickup and never showed. Unbelievable. Do not buy this refrigerator. I noticed the highly rated comments are recent. They haven't gotten to the point where the icemaker frosts over and the fan starts screaming. We loved it to for the first few weeks. I now have a 300 pound paper weight in my house.
