Product Description

Kenmore 25.0 cu. ft. French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator

Whether you're hosting a big event or just feeding your family, the Kenmore French Door refrigerator 7160 has plenty of space. Four Adjustable Glass Shelves, pantry drawer and deep gallon-sized door bins give you plenty of storage, and two humidity-controlled crisper drawers keep veggies fresh. The pull-out bottom freezer offers another 7.5 cu. ft. of space. The energy-efficient design saves money, and with the Kenmore bottom-freezer refrigerator's GeniusCool™ technology and advanced air-flow control system, food is always stored at the perfect temperature.

  • A full-width, gourmet pantry drawer stores party platters, pizzas, pies, trays and more while clearing shelf space for better organization and easier storage.
  • Spacious, tight-sealing and designed to control humidity, Kenmore crisper drawers deliver fresh, crunchy fruit and vegetables, so you can stock up on produce.
  • Advanced Air Flow uses strategically placed vents to balance cool air throughout the entire refrigerator, so even the items on the door stay cool.
  • Spill-proof tempered glass shelves keep drips, drizzles and spills from spreading throughout the fridge, making cleanup fast and easy.

Very Nice
Kenmore Refrigerator, Model 795.71603.014, 25 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel, French Door-Bottom Freezer; purchased 27 October 2014; delivered 19 November 2014. I did not find a small plastic hook in the gasket at the top of each door that would break as noted by another individual. I did not find anything in the doors that could possibly break but found them to be solid, easy to open/close and they have a tight seal. My sales person verified this model is manufactured by LG and has the LG Linear compressor. The LG compressor was a big plus for me since it has fewer moving parts, is more efficient and is very quiet. I love the LED lighting and I found it to have plenty of room for my needs. Yes, you do have to move one of the top shelves down to the 6th slot in order to accommodate half gallon containers which I didn't consider a big deal. I have 4 half gallon glass milk bottles with pour spouts that are 11.5 inches in height and a gallon of maple syrup all on one of the top shelves and I still have plenty of room left on that shelf for 5 more half gallon milk containers or for other things. I found one compartment on the left door to have plenty of room for a half gallon container and 4 quart containers with lots of room left in the other 3 compartments. I did remove the dairy/butter holder in the right door since I do not have a need for it and it did take up space so I was unable to use the other compartments on that side to store any large bottles; i.e., ketchup, mayonnaise. It is much roomier with that dairy/butter holder gone. The crisper on the right will only open about half way with the left door closed but it still provides you ample room to retrieve turnips, parsnips, brussel sprouts, bag of carrots with the left door closed. You will have to open the left door to fully open this crisper in order to retrieve larger items like a bunch of celery or any vegetable which is long in length. The freezer has plenty of room and I especially like the small collapsible shelf attached to the inside top of the freezer drawer. I do not use the ice cube maker and that provides me with even more storage space. Cons: The refrigerator temperature display does not alternately show the current temperature of the refrigerator or the freezer, instead it constantly shows the refrigerator and freezer selected temperature settings. Would be a great feature to have so you could monitor your actual temperatures. The refrigerator does not have a temperature alarm which would warn you if the freezer or refrigerator temperature exceed normal operating temperatures. The small bottom compartment on the left door cannot be exchanged with another compartment. If you do so you not be able to close the the door since the other compartments are bigger and hit the top of the freezer drawer.

Beware of design problem
We've had the refrigerator almost two years now. We really like the bottom freezer with its easily accessible space. It is also very efficient - our electric bills dropped ~10% when we replaced our 18 yr. old model. However, you should be aware of a problem with the french doors on the refrigerator section. In the gasket at the top of each door there is a small plastic hook that helps keep the door closed. The problem is one of those hooks broke off after about 18 months. The repair necessitated replacing the entire door gasket at a cost of $125. The repairman indicated this is a common problem (my sister's similar model had the same issue) that could be avoided by opening or closing the french doors one at a time. Evidently when they are opened/closed together there is not enough room for both hooks to swing free so the plastic gets stressed and eventually breaks. It would have been nice to know this when we bought the refrigerator, so we could avoid the problem in the first place. I'm confident that we can prevent a recurring problem, but knowing what I do now, I'd probably choose a model with a different style door gasket in the first place.

25 cb ft French door refrig

I have had this frig for about three weeks and so far it is working perfectly. I have had Kenmore's in the past any never had a problem. It took a bit of time to get use to the three doors as my last one was a side by side. However, I like being able to view everything that's in the freezer so I always know what's on hand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So glad we purchased this!

We looked at **********, ***** and ******** before purchasing this model. This one had everything I wanted at a great price - no ice in door, led lighting, French doors, adjustable shelves and lots of room. I love the "Deli Drawer" and the space that this fridge has. I read reviews that say that it is noisy or that it runs a lot. We have NOT found this to be true. Ours is very quiet, and I rarely am even aware that it is running. There is lots of room inside, and with the double doors and the bins on the doors, it is SO easy to organize everything so that you can actually SEE what you have. And now that we can see leftovers (because they don't get shoved into a black hole at the back) we are not wasting food! The bottom freezer is great too - plenty of room. We have a stand alone ice maker, so we did not install the ice maker in our fridge. It is not as easy to organize as the fridge, but we use the freezer much less anyway, so I don't mind that. The little compartment on the door of the freezer is nice so that small items don't get lost. And one of my favorite things is the LED lights - it is SO bright inside that you can easily tell what you have and where it is. I LOVE this Refrigerator! The sales people at the Sears in Mesquite were awesome - very helpful and seemed as if they wanted us to get what we wanted - they didn't mind that I bounced back and forth between three models for quite awhile before I made up my mind! Delivery was right on time, and the delivery men were great as well. Love my fridge, Love Sears and just happy with my selection!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So much room

I haven't had this refrigerator very long but so far I love it. It has so much room that I had trouble deciding what to put where. I love the slide out shelves. The freezer is very roomy. I don't have the ice maker hooked up yet so can't comment on that feature. If it is as good as everything else then it will be awesome too.

Great so far

It's just what I was looking for. Color I wanted was available and size I wanted was available. The refrigerator was too large to get in my house (due to a pull screen door on the front door, but the delivery person made it work by going to the extra trouble of taking off the three front doors, Delivery was exceptional! Earlier than expected and the delivery person was very helpful and courteous. All the storage spaces are so convenient and are keeping all the food at the temperatures promised in the user manual. The refrigerator cooled to the ideal temperature much sooner than expected. Had ice cubes and freezer stocked in just a few hours. Great buy! I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone looking for a great buy and a great refrigerator.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice, large refrigerator

We have had this refrigerator for only about two weeks, but so far we like it. It holds a lot and has easy accessibility. The freezer drawer is large and holds a lot more than I thought it would. It runs quietly, which we like. The temperature seems to be steady.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best fridge ever!

Perfect in every way! The amount of space in both the fridge and freezer is remarkable. The led lighting is fantastic. The extra drawer is very convenient, and the two crisper drawers hold a lot! I love that you can see everything when you open the doors.
