Maximum Space

We went with this fridge because it gave us maximum cubic feet for our space restrictions. It is gigantic compared to our old fridge! There's so much room, even filled with food it doesn't look full or get cluttered. We chose single door vs French doors because it gave us more space and I'm happy we did. The freezer is large and spacious and everything seals shut nicely. My 2 year old cant open the freezer or fridge unlike our old one. When the fridge came, the door was squeaking every time we opened it, but it's broke in nicely and doesn't anymore. The freezer is the same way. This is a great fridge for the price and looks beautiful. Highly recommend it.

repairs too expensive

We bought this less than two years ago, and now have a refrigerant leak which contaminated the compressor. The compressor for this refrigerator is $700+ and the repair was going to be almost $1000. This was our first Sears appliance purchase and will be our last. Purchasers should be alerted to such high part costs. We can't believe we need to replace an appliance that is relatively new.

DO NOT BUY Kenmore Elite Refrigerator


Bought a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator 2 years ago. It recently failed. Called sears service and got transferred no less than 5 times. Was not help full. Finally got an appointment scheduled for a 4 hour block. Waited that time and called a couple times to check and make sure they would make it. The reassured me that the Tech would call an show up. I got a no show no call. They called a half hour after the end of my 4 hour appt window and said he didn't make it. I rescheduled again. Another day off from work. Once again I got a no call. Called a local service company and they came out. It was the compressor. The tech stated the had a lot of Kenmore Elite and LG Compressors failing. He said they fail with in 2 to 3 years. Tried to get warranty on the compressor as is stated in the manual, but I had no luck. Sears said it had to be a Sears tech, so they put me though the whole ears of call transfers again just to schedule another appointment that the tech will not show up for. The last representative from sears, Chris in Arizona was rude and not very help full. Sears you got me once, not again. Take my suggestion and stay away from Sears.

Roomy and Organized


This is a great refrigerator. There are loads of room, nice storage, easy to see what's on the top shelves. Especially like the clear bottom compartments, you can see what's in them without opening. Freezer has lots of room also. Very happy with this purchase!
