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.

Repair services poor, customer service is poor, zero stars not an option


Purchased this Kenmore refrigerator under a high recommendation among many choices from the salesman. Yes, never take advice from a salesman I know...and after spending $2000 plus the warranty cost we found our fridge and freezer not keeping things cold or frozen after least than 2 years. Repair tech came to our house because we are still under warranty, he was hours later than he promised the morning of the appointment, arrival time was 5:45pm after waiting at home on a day off all day!!!! He couldn’t figure it out only to tell us we needed a new part that would take 2.5 weeks to ship. So groceries continue to spoil and we get an email stating our appt is rescheduled for 3 weeks they told us they were sorry but Saturday 3 weeks from now is our ONLY choice....never again Sears NEVER!

Horrible experience


Delivered refrigrator with door handle on wrong side. I verified the correct door orientation with sales lady and twice with delivery people. Lo and behold fridge arrives with door handle on wrong side. They sent 2 men to my house to change door handle orientation a couple days later.
Next, I paid $125 to have sears install ice maker. Installation guy has been here twice and still no ice. I have spent the past few hours on phone today and STILL have not been told what sears is going to do to fix my ice maker. I purchased this in August, 2018 and it is 1 week until October. My goodwill and patience are GONE! Do not purchase from sears unless you enjoy frustration, aggravation and a product that doesn't work. You must also enjoy having various delivery and installation people in and out of your home. To date we have had 7 men on 4 different occasions in our home...RIDICULOUS!!
