Decent refrigerator for the price.

Compressor fan died after 2 days. Called service and they had it repaired a few days later. No mechanical problems since (I have had it for 2 months now) The fridge is rather noisy. It is not just noise from the ice falling as I have seen on some other reviews. You can hear the pump for the water kick on and off as you use the water/ice dispenser. I wanted a side by side with dispenser and was limited in size due to the cabinet it was going into. My choices were limited based on this. Overall for the price I paid, not a bad purchase.

So Far So Good!

This was one of the few refrigerators that could fit in the small space we have. We really wanted a counter depth but for some reason those are all taller and we just didn't have the height to work with. We refuse to buy any more refrigerators with the freezer on the bottom, have had no luck with the past 2, this is why we chose this side by side. We actually didn't lose all that much storage space, the storage on the door holds more than our old French door one, and the shelves go all the way to the bottom of the refrigerator, again better than our old French door one. We did lose space in the freezer but do have an actual freezer unit in our laundry room, along with another refrigerator in our garage, so it really wasn't an issue. Water on door works great, not sure about the ice yet, too soon to tell. Didn't rate it a 5 because it gives off some sort of odor on the outside, not on the inside. Possibly from the paint? The inside is fine, no smell. We haven't had it a week yet, so hoping the odor fades soon. The lighting inside is a great feature also. So far, aside from the odor, we are pleased with the purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
