Excellent Buy!
WARNING! It is imperative that I mention this serious safety hazard at the beginning of my review. The freezer handle on this Sears Kenmore refrigerator, model number: 68892 (253-68892014) is a dangerous safety hazard. The freezer handle extends to the bottom of the freezer door and the bottom part juts too far out, way too far out. Whenever a person puts his or her head in the refrigerator compartment to retrieve an item, when you are lifting your head from the refrigerator compartment, you may, can, and will bust, crack or hit you head on the ?sharp? bottom part of the freezer handle! I busted my head on the bottom part of the freezer handle as I described it above. I received a big gash on my fore-head and the blood streamed out and I cursed and had a little head ache. It was serious enough for me to go to the emergency room. This is a serious product design. I reported this to the Sears customer service representative. He took this as a serious matter, made a note of it and said he would report it to his superiors. I will report it further. I guarantee in some household somewhere, an 8, 9, 10 year old kid will bust his/her head on the freezer handle retrieving items from the refrigerator compartment. I was gonna just reverse the freezer handle and I realized you just can?t reverse the freezer handle alone, you have to reverse both the freezer handle and the refrigerator handle and the same problem would still exist. Solution: Remove the freezer handle. To remove the freezer handle is easy. Just unscrew the two screws on the bottom of the freezer handle, push the freezer handle up a little bit, turn it to the left about 90 degrees and push and lift it off the retaining screw. And ?Presto,? the danger is removed. Just like that! That?s it! You?ll say, Wow! The freezer compartment door looks even smoother, clearer and cleaner without the freezer handle. To open the freezer, I place my fingers straight up above where the handle used to be, right on the corner, and pull. Works like a champ! Or you can grab the top of the freezer door in any position in that track that runs behind the top of the freezer door. You can leave the retaining screw in place. That?s what I did. Or you can take it out and have a hole to look at. You can place your doctor appointments, post-it-notes or some other reminder over the screw and you?ll have a good looking bulletin board! Now, to finish my review. I purchased my refrigerator on March 5, 2014. This refrigerator is nice looking with a smooth texture. It looks nice in the kitchen. I looked at about 10 at Sears and then went to an appliance store. This model was the best, I think, of all the ones that I looked at, including the $2,000 - $3,500 dollars ones. I like the see through glass shelves. They slide out so you can more easily reach items in the back. You can move the shelves up or down to make the kind of space you desire between the shelves. The door racks are a blessing! Nice and wide. Runs the length of the door. I like ?em better than individual bins. The door racks will hold jugs, jars, bottles and gallons. You can just reach in there and grab what you want without hindrances The freezer compartment has an adjustable shelf so you can place food on and under the shelf. Very convenient. The freezer is also self-defrosting. The Crispers bins that hold the fruits and vegetables are not full size. They are kind of slanted in the back, towards the middle and cuts off half of the bins. The back part looks like the end of a ski slope. The Crispers are made that way because the compressor is on the bottom of the refrigerator taking up space were a full size Crisper could fit nicely. The light bulb is in the middle of the refrigerator, above the top shelf. The bulb is ?naked?. No shield to protect it. Please be careful when moving items around so you won?t break the bulb. Or lower the shelf if you want more space. The refrigerator has good lighting. You can see what you?re looking for. The deli drawer is affixed to the top shelf. You can reach in and get your bologna and hot dogs but the drawer can?t be taken all the way out. Well, it can come out if you struggle, press and lift. I think it?s made not to be taken out. I did not want the ice maker, water dispenser and a lot of fancy stuff. ?The simple, the better?. This refrigerator will do what the top of the line refrigerators did back in the 60?s, 70?s and 80?s. Keep your food and produce cold. This refrigerator has rollers, (wheels) that make it easy to pull out and clean behind it. It was amazing, I kinda pulled on it and it rolled out like toilet paper. The refrigerator was kind of loud the first day when I plugged it in, but after a day of running, I think, after it makes it adjustments, the sounds will stabilize and it will be hardly noticeable at times. I timed it for 2 weeks. It turns on and off periodically for cooling and defrosting. Summary: All in all, this is an excellent refrigerator. Excellent price too. The price will fluctuate on sale anywhere from $68.00 to $150.00 within a few days as compared to in-store and Sears?s web site. I purchased mine in-store and the next day when I looked at my delivery schedule, the price was $68.00 dollars less. I went to Sears and the clerk adjusted my purchase price to match the Sears web site and credited me with $68.00. That made it worthwhile to me to purchase this refrigerator. If you are planning on buying a refrigerator, take a look at this one. BYE!

Don't recommend
Although very attractive I would not recommend this appliance. When the motor is running it sounds like a car idling in the kitchen. The crispers are not full size, can't even hold celery stalks. They are slanted to the back half way down. The door shelves are too wide and not set up conveniently. Don't think they asked a women's opinion in the design.

Happy

Fridge is good, came in working order, delivery guys were very nice, changed the door swing before bringing it into the house. Only issue is the Kenmore emblem that covers the hole from door switching keeps falling off front of fridge onto the floor.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Extra refrigerator

I rate this as average as there is absolutely no frills. I am using it in my basement as an extra. I like the glass shelves over the wire in the base model. The two humidity control drawers are great for vegs an fruit. Each can be adjusted for the amount of humidity you want. The freezer is decent size (hold a large bag of ice plus extra room. It is a bit noisy which is why I didn't give it 4 stars. For a basic model it is good and serves it purpose.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cheaply made Noisy Junk

The freezer door is the issue. As mentioned by others the handle is an issue. On mine I believe it may be the small plastic corner tabs that come out of the freezer that are breaking the seal and causing the door to constantly come open. I am ashamed of this thing as I have now taken to taping the freezer door shut so I don't have to get up 10 times a night to close it. The icemaker also takes a lot of getting used to, it is noisy but so is the fridge itself.

Don't do it...

Great price perfect size. I was looking for something cheap since I am renting. But a nice size full refrigerator. That it fulfilled, the only reason it got 2 stars. There was no ice maker as shown in several pictures problem #1. Then there is a running noise that I can deal with and forget that it's there but this gargle broke car noise is outrageous. I hear it most after I open the door but it does happen randomly. I don't know if I could live with this it is so distracting. It's hard to ignore. Trying to decide if I should return it or not. Oh one other thing every time is open the "cheese" drawer the whole shelf moves...annoying. I could live with that hut the gargle is ridiculous.

Economical refrigerator

We needed a very simple refrigerator and this one turned out to be perfect! It is roomy and has the basic features that we were looking for. It will be our extra refrigerator when we move and will be perfect for extra space plus beverages and frozen food.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
