Kenmore Elite performs very well and looks great when matched with other Kenmore Elite appliances. Very easy to install. Bright LED light up the refrigeration section. Cooling controls easy to change temperature. Shelves and drawers are stronger than other refrigerators we looked at. Two folding shelves for tall items. Tilt freezer drawer makes for better access with several drawers. Very similar to LG. Includes a 10 year warranty on the motor. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new french door refrigerator. (owned and used for 10 months)
I've had this refrigerator for about 2 years. It does ok, but mostly I'm concerned about a very load fan noise. I've read other reviews about the fan going out and having to pay $500+ to fix it. It sounds like it is about to die. Kenmore/Sears should step up and address this.
Aside from reliability concerns, you have to be careful where you put stuff in the top (non-freezer) section. I find that if you put too many things on the top shelf, somehow it affects the sensors and everything freezes.
I would not recommend paying more than $1000 for this product new, as you will inevitably have to pay substantial money to have it fixed.
