Had a little problem with the delivery in the beginning, but once that was taken care of, very pleased with the purchase.
First one required two parts 3 months out of warranty, then at 19 months, it sounded like the compressor broke the crank shaft. Bought a second one (am I nuts?) That came with the drain line installed backwards so that the water dumped into the base of the unit rather than out the back where the receptor was located. Before I could stop it, it dumped about a half gallon of water on my hardwood floors.
this is our second icemaker (the first one lasted about 10 years) It works very similar to the one we had so I am very pleased. Once you have an icemaker it is hard to live without it! Yes, can be a little loud when producing but nothing you can't get used to. Every morning it is filled to the top again....great producer!
I had one for ten years and it finally quit making ice so I bought another one. Hopefully it lasts as long as the last one.
Had this for 3 years and every 6-8 months something would tear up to the tune of $300-600. Finally giving up on it after spending $$ on service calls and repairs.
We are on our 2nd one. I will never buy another Sears product again. We purchased the maintenance agreement & are having the hardest time getting a repair scheduled. It is a constant run around with Sears. Sears is not the company it used to be to say the least.
Buyers be warned: I ordered this model online in August because I saw on the webpages its features such as: "Automatic Defrost", "Defrost Water drain: No". However, a month later, my wood floor was found to change color and warp. Reason: my ice maker has been draining water to the floor all the time. By my requests, Sears has sent out two warranty guys already to fix problem. But they both did nothing, instead, they asked me to call a plumber to install a drain. Sears: Did you just delivered a wrong model to me, or you have done a false advertising for the water drain feature?
