Bought this to replace a 14 year old side by side white fridge. promised wife to go stainless this time. We decided on this fridge based on looks and price, however I did read the negative reviews before I purchased the fridge. This is why I am compelled to write this review. First, there is only a total of 25 review as I am writing this. I have only had the fridge a week and I have had no issues that are not explained in the manual that comes with the refrigerator. It does take at least 24 hours for refrigerator to cool when first plugged in. I also read a review about the water leaking out of water spout after use. First the first 24 hours this was an issue. Again the refrigerator has not got down to temp yet. I did not buy refrigerator thermometers, but the refrigerator is cooling as expected as well as the freezer. The ice maker does take up space in the fridge, but you should realize that when you see it. The ice maker does not hold a lot of ice, but that is why they provided a ice bucket to keep in the freezer. To stop the ice from clogging you should turn off the ice maker if you are not going to be using it for a while. This is all written out in the manual. The little shelf is there for everyone. You just have to figure out how it works. The lip of the glass shelf slides in between shelf and ice maker. They do not describe this in the manual. It took about 5 min. to figure out though. The doors are able to keep gallon items. I adjusted the top shelf to hold beer. If you are chilling wine bottles they will have to go on their sides or adjust the little shelf. Maybe I will buy a wine fridge. Overall, extremely happy with this purchased. Had for over a week, family of four no pets, no smudges. People just need to use the handles. Also magnets stick to this fridge as well as other stainless steel fridges that are $3500 in the store. It all depends on the nickel content. Do your own research first. Love, love the space and price. I actually got $100 cheaper for some easter black friday deal. I did try the other stores first only because they are close to where I live. I have always bought sears, fortunately there is one where I work. Quickly went on a lunch break, just to be sure I did not miss anything. Glad I did. That weekend we traveled 1/2 hour and took our time buying it. Sales lady was great and delivery was fantastic. They were 10 min early to the 2 hour window. It took about 1/2 for install and removal. They were fantastic. Just hope it lasts.
The refrigerator won't cool below 40 degrees regardless of what I have the temperature set at. Phone support is atrocioius. I was transferred at least 6 times. When I was finally able to speak to someone, i was given a service appointment over a week away. I have over $200 of spoiled food as my old refrigerator was hauled away. I'm very disappointed at the support I've received . I've purchased numerous Kenmore appliances for several homes but after this experience will no longer purchase or recommend.
I use it to keep food in it and it adds value to my kitchen
I love my fridge but the ice maker and water dispenser hasn't worked properly since we purchased it. It worked a couple of times and then we can never get it to work. I don't know if we are doing something wrong of it is a malfunction .
this is the worst ice maker I have ever owned - I love the fridge but the ice maker does not make ice in a timely manner
It's big and I can put a lot things inside, also the freezer, excellent job
Very good product
