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.

Bottom Freezer Like; Pullout Basket UGH; outside texture UGH

I previously had a bottom freezer Kenmore with a side-open door 1 shelf and 1 pull out basket. I liked it but when I went to buy a larger model my only choice was a pullout door with 1 small pull out rack and 1 larger bin with separator. The larger bin is really a pain because it's too deep and has a slant to it that really provides less room for larger items compared to the shelf. For example, I can't put a box of frozen pizza (i.e. Red Baron) in the bin flat or my tupperware of Christmas cookies with that stupid slanted bin. The shelf was much better...bin bad. My old Kenmore also had a nice textured finish on the outside that was attractive and easy to keep clean. This new model has a shiny, flat finish that is ugly.

can't level/moves/shakes contents when opening door


have attempted to level by modifying front legs, no luck. Had sears repair, they did the same thing we did, they were not successful either, admitted that the movement should not exist.
The entire box of the refrigerator shakes when you open the door. not acceptable. what to do next?

Loud noise


I really like this item, however, the refrigerator makes this loud grinding noise occasionally for about 3-4 seconds. Sounds like it's going to explode. Now I have to troubleshoot or go thru the trouble of returning it. Regardless if its normal,the noise is nerve wracking.

Love the refrigerator on top


I can't say enough good things about the refrigerator. It is very spacious and having things at eye lever is just great. I will say that you'd better be strong to open the door, as it takes a healthy pull. This can be a bit jarring to the things stored in the door bins. Freezer is taking more getting used to, Even though is has more sq ft, I can't seem to get as much in it, and getting to the frozen items takes a bit more work. Ice bin is over-sized for me, but would likely be something a larger family would love.

Remarkable Refrigerator


This refrigerator is quiet as a mouse and keeps contents at an exact temperature. The big door provides easy access to items on all shelves. This is much better than any of the side-by-side refrigerators.

Everything I hoped for .... and MORE!


When we finally came to the decision to replace our 16yr old Kenmore, it was overwhelming. So many choices...upper vs lower freezer, French door, # of shelves vs split shelving...and worse, does it come in WHITE? We did our research and regardless of special pricing and holiday deals being offered at the big-box stores and local distributors, we continued to come back to Kenmore Elite 79042. This frig is AMAZING! Quiet, roomy, well-lit, easy to clean and SMART! I love being able to see everything, no hidden stuff falls in the back. The veggie bins don't appear to be very large, but I have 5lb bags of potatoes, carrots, onions, heads of lettuce and those long fresh-from-the-farm celery stalks that fit perfectly without cramming. The deli draw keeps everything at the perfect temperature. Overall, food lasts longer and keeps fresher in all categories, which means I'm throwing less food away due to spoiling. I didn't know how bad my old frig was until we got this one. I'm happy we stayed with Kenmore and looking forward to another 16+ years!
