Very pleased with this refrigerator

I've only had this refrigerator less than a week and so far I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. I had a much older, similar model that needed to be replaced. This one is quieter, has more sections, and ice is dispensed MUCH  faster (unlike my sluggish older one). I also love that the ice maker is now inside the door and frees up more shelf space. My previous Kenmore lasted 15 years trouble free, I can only hope for the same with this new one.  Delivery was fast, on-schedule, and those guys were pros.

HATE, HATE, HATE this refrigerator

We spent over $1,500 for this new refrigerator and opted not to get extended warranty. Delivery guys installed (didn't put the bottom skirt on until we couldn't find it & called them back in before leaving). They also only took outside packaging - all inside packaging was left for us to untape/unpack & discard. Problems: * Water isn't cold (tap water is colder!) * Chicken was going bad & stinking up the fridge before the expiration date * Tiny ice maker bin was forming icebergs due to melting (being in the door vs inside the freezer) * There are NO adjustable shelves * Milk - barely fits the top shelf - seriously, almost scraping the top to fit in a gallon - if you read their manual, it says not to store milk on door bins (even though they design it to look like it should) After about 2 months, we got a thermometer for the fridge & though we had it set to 36, it was running about 40. Called Sears who said to call Kenmore since it was out of the 30 warranty. Kenmore came out, technician said it was the main board & ordered the part. He also said with the ice maker actually being on the door, you should empty your ice bucket every 3-5 days due to melting (when warm room air enters the dispenser while in use) & icing up - WTH?! When the technicians come out, they tell you all the details on "how much you saved" by being under warranty, blah, blah, blah. Um, no, we didn't save any money, we lost time & money by having to be available for a technician to come for a diagnosis visit then repair visit so WE should get a rebate or credit of some sort for our inconvenience. With new Main board that was replaced on 12/23/15 - The temperature readings seem to depend on the shelf. We have a 1/2 - 3/4 filled fridge & though temp is set to 36, it is about 38. Water still not as cold as last/old fridge. Oh, if you aren't happy with your purchase after 30 days, you have to have 3 separate repair visits (does not include any diagnosis visits - only when actually repairing something) in order to get a completely new product. I would NOT recommend this fridge to anyone. So disgusted with this whole experience.

Quit making ice and dispensing water.

Like almost everything about this refrigerator. Could have adjustable shelves in Refrigerator side to be top notch and 5 stars.

Why this is so disappointing.


Not a single problem in 15 years with my last Kenmore refrigerator. My new 3 year old refrigerator will have its second repair today and cost me another $100 in bad food.

Excellent refrigerator. Energy efficient with freezer, refrigerator temperatures shown right on freezer door. Attractive looking in stainless steel. Highly recommended.

Love my new refrigerator


I can only get a 33 in refrigerator. I like this Kenmore Elite because it had the ice maker in the door and not on the shelf. I now have more space in my freezer. The refrigerator is easier to organize then my old side by side.
