Product Description

Kenmore 26.5 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator - Expansive Storage Solutions

With a spacious interior and optimal refrigeration capabilities, the Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator 5113 gives you room to stock up on food for the whole family. Two full-door adjustable bins accommodate gallon-sized containers giving you even more shelf space. A convertible storage bin organizes meats and snacks, while the freezer gives you more room, with glass shelves that make it easy to store everything from popsicles to pizzas.

  • Relocated to the door, the SpaceSaver Ice System makes chilly ice, while clearing an entire shelf to give you 30% more storage space, so you can stock up on frozen foods.
  • Adjusting to suit produce, desserts, meats, cheese and more, the temperature controlled convertible bin adapts to your grocery list with a quick swipe of the control.
  • SmartSense Temperature Management responds to warming and cooling instantly, ensuring a consistent temperature throughout the interior to help keep produce fresh and delicious.
  • The CleanFlow™ Air Filter circulates air through a charcoal filter to keep the refrigerator smelling fresh and is 15 times more effective than baking soda in reducing odors.
  • Designed to customize and help increase visibility, adjustable glass shelving moves to suit your storage needs while delivering an easy to clean surface with serious support.
  • Designed to keep you covered, even when company’s over, Acceler-Ice creates frozen crescents faster, so you always have plenty of ice for drinks, cocktails and coolers.

I'm pleased!
After agonizing over this purchase, I am quite pleased with our new refrigerator. A few bad reviews had me second guessing our decision, but after 2 weeks in-house I'm very happy. The best feature for us is more freezer shelf space with the ice maker in the door. The water dispenser has a powerful stream which is good because I drink a lot of water. By the way, I read that the water filter bypass is built into this unit. So if you don't like the Pur filters you could buy an inline water filter and connect it outside the refrigerator. Some of them are rated for 5 years. As far as those bad reviews, the following issues are not deal breakers for me: 1. Units with through-the-door water and ice require significantly more repairs than less complex refrigerators. So, if that feature is not very important to you, don't buy it. If you buy it get a service contract. Our refrigerator is the only appliance that I buy a service contract for and Sears service is reliable. 2. This unit is made for Sears by Whirlpool (as certified in the accompanying documentation) which has the lowest repair rate according to Consumers Reports 2013 Buyers Guide at 14%. However, that still means that 1 in 7 of their units may fail and my heart goes out to anyone in that situation. 3. The noise. They all make noise. A refrigerator is an integrated collection of machines that all make noise. The water dispenser is essentially a faucet. A valve opens and water pumps out. A valve and pump also move water into the ice maker where it freezes, gets chopped up by metal blades and drops into a bin -- all of that makes some noise. I would liken it to a beverage and ice dispenser at a food court. 4. The lights. This is a matter of taste. The LED lights are stylish, dimmer than traditional incandescent light bulbs and take less than a second to reach their full illumination. They're kind of like mood lighting. So, if waiting a second is too long, you should look for a different model.

Noisy.
Water dispenser is very poor. Cannot fill a bottle without spilling water. Water filter, while easy to change, you will get water in the refrigerator that you will have to clean-up when you change the filter. Lights come "ON" too slowly. When you first open the refrigerator, it is dark. The refrigerator and the ice maker make too much noise. It is very distracting in our otherwise quiet house. Shelves cannot be adjusted to suit homeowner because of the way the light in the back is situated and the predetermined shelf holders.

Water Dispenser/Ice Maker

The refrigerator is great! I love the size and the freezer with the ice maker in the door, it gives you so much more room in the freezer, but it appears the water filter is so good at filtering that after a short period of time it restricts the water flow to the water dispenser and ice maker, There is no fix, it is what it is. If you live in a city with dirty water, like I do, I have to change the filter every three to four weeks for best water flow. Sears has a great subscription plan, and they will send you a new filter every month. If you operate with low water flow to the ice maker you get little chips of ice that can freeze and affect the ice delivery system. You can pull the filter, and the water and ice maker works perfect, but with unfiltered water.

Absolutely the Worst!

Long story short, very loud compressor that runs for hours on end. Very loud ice maker.Poor lighting, little control over shelf positions, odd water/ice operation. I was told by Sears that low cost fridges do make more noise. However at $1150 it ain't cheap. Absolute worst purchase ever. Was returned and I got a 71609. High rated in CR. What a dream, and QUIET.

I HATE IT!!!! Worst I have ever had!!!

This was either the first one delivered or the replacement for the first one that was delivered and defective. The first one also had a bad seal on the frig. door so it could not close out the room air. It ran all night to try to stay at the correct temp.. Same Side By Side model. First one was delivered on March 14, 2014 and the second one (the replacement) was delivered on March 21, 2014 I had to call the next day because the doors were hitting each other when I opened either one of the doors. The replacement one is the one that I wrote my other review on. It is the one that I still have and still HATE it.

I HATE it. It is the worst refrigerator I have ever had. !!!

EXTREMELY noisy when ice is dumped into the ice bin. I can hear it at the other end of my house, all day and during the night. Lighting is horrible in frig. and freezer. Shelves underneath the lights are blocked by the foods located on the shelf above because of the lighting. Very limited shelf adjustments or locations in frig. and in doors. The area inside the frig. and freezer is very narrow. You have to empty the ice bin when it gets full or ice will form on shelves and packages. Freezer shelves are open shelves and do not have anything to keep foods from falling out. You have to push the doors real hard to make sure they close, they don't glide close at all, even with a slight nudge. Mine did not make ice for 2 days, even after I had it for 4 months. Then all of a sudden it started making ice again, and yes, I know where the adjustments are. I have had it since March 21, 2014 and it already says change filter. It has 2 filters, I found out, that has to be ordered, bought, and changed periodically by you. I have never had a refrigerator that I had to change filters. The only recommendation I would give to anyone is: DO NOT BUY THIS REFRIGERATOR. I really do need a more efficient Side By Side. I really am so disappointed and wish now that I hadn't wasted my money on it.

Love it!

Have had for several months and love it! The interior is thoughtfully designed and it seems like I have more room than the larger (albeit very old) Whirlpool it replaced. Love the smaller ice cubes and the ease of pulling out the ice tray to fill a cooler. Although it does does not hold as much ice as the last fridge, I can use the convenient bottom drawer to hold ice so I can make extra in advance of having guests over. We drink a lot of water but have never worried about running out of ice. The lighting is awesome.

great except for ice maker

I purchased this refrigerator in June 2014. I like everything about it except, and it's a BIG except, the ice maker does not make enough ice. I've lowered the temp and keep turning on the accelerated ice production function. When nothing helped I called the service line and was told all they could do was send someone out and it would cost in excess of $200. Does anyone know if there is a fix to this problem?

I would recommend this product to a friend.
