The fridge collects ice on the bottom of the freezer and leaks all over our floor. The door doesn't close all the way. We had to pay almost $300 to have it repaired right after the warranty expired. Stay away.
We purchased this refrigerator over 30 days ago. Love the way it looks and how it fits in the kitchen perfectly. There is plenty of room inside the refrigerator and freezer for us. We have not had any issues with temperature changes or freezer frost. The only problem is the compressor runs constantly. The compressor starts on an average of every 20 minutes, and runs for 5 minutes. In some cases, the compressor runs for 5 minutes, shuts off, and in 10 seconds, begins to run again! And the none of the doors/drawers have been opened! This cannot be energy efficient! Has anyone else had this issue? This could be a manufacturer defect where the compressor was not properly charged at the factory. Its reasonable for the fan to run regularly for air circulation, however not the compressor. We will be in contact with Sears and hope they will stand behind their product, especially the Kenmore appliances. We are asking for appropriate repairs or replacement or another name brand.
I bought this refrigerator after really scrutinizing the reviews and comparing it with similar refrigerators by different manufacturers, and another "home improvement" store. The local Sears store had one of these in stock, so I went in to "kick the tires". I guess I'm either a careful shopper, or just a tough customer.. It really paid off because I picked a really good refrigerator. It was delivered two days ago, the same day I bought it. I don't normally follow-up purchases by writing a review, but decided I would this time, as previous reviews I read, helped me make a very wise decision to buy this Kenmore Product! So far, there is nothing I DON'T like about it; quite the reverse is true". The only thing, so far, that I would ask Sears to do (to improve on it) is; lower the price of replacement water filters. As in all water filters, they are costly - $49.
We had a Kenmore 12 year old 18.8 cubic foot freezer top model which worked fine, but noticed that if we had party's, there was little space for food storage, before and after. We decided to get a slightly bigger model, and one with the freezer on the bottom, as we accessed that compartment less frequently, and were down on the floor reaching for things on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator more often than we cared to. We are definitely happy with the bigger space (the large full size cheese drawer is great and can even fit a full sheet cake). The only flip that is inconvenient is having the ice maker down the bottom, so that's what we are bending for now, though not as frequently as we were bending for milk, juice, etc. The humidity control worked great; didn't notice the ice accelerator actually made ice faster, but perhaps it wasn't up to its standard temperature when we used the feature on its second day. The best part of all of this is the filtered water feature. We specifically chose the interior water dispenser, as the exterior dispenser took up too much door storage space for our needs. The Brita pitcher is gone and we've recovered some shelf space as a result! And the water comes out cold...perfect for these hot summer days. I did note that you really need to make sure the double doors close tightly...a slight push doesn't necessarily close it all the way, as it would on our previous refrigerator. There is a 'door alarm' that is supposed to sound if the door is open for more than 5 minutes, but we've not tested that. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars, as we've only had it for less than 2 weeks. So far, so good....highly recommend!
Great looking refrigerator, great convenience, love the bottom freezer and ice-maker. It has lots of refrigerator space, and the wide shelving gives great space for storage of large dishes. The inside water dispenser is pretty cool too.
Lots of space for the money. Good interior design in refrigerator and freezer. Ice maker works great. Biggest disappointment is Stainless Steel finish. It fingerprints easily and is difficult to clean. Limited to what types of cleaners can be used; even stainless steel cleaner just made it smeary. Eventually cleans up with a fair amount of rubbing and buffing.
Amazing how much more room for everything. The size is only 2" wider then our old unit. Never need to bend down to get food items out. The freezer is so easy to access items.
We love the fridge and the flexibility of the shelving and storage options. The convenience of the pull out full width drawer is top notch. The fruits and vegetables seem to stay fresh much longer than with our previous refrigerator. Make sure you purchase stainless steel wipes if you have small children!
I purchased my fridge in 2005. 2 yrs. later had to replace fan motor. May 25, 2012 (7 yrs later) the compressor went out. I liked this fridge a lot. Looks good and lots of room. Not happy with how quick there were problems.
Purchased the same one in white a few years ago (then it was a Kenmore Elite Trio). Loved it. Remodeled so researched to find the same in SS. This is an exact match, except it is no longer considered an Elite (no ice maker on the door). We don't like the ice makers on the door; takes up inside door space. Filtered water is inside the frig. Never had a problem with the other one; expecting the same with this. The delivery guys were great too!
