Kenmore is America's #1 Refrigerator brand

The Kenmore Elite 74043 counter-depth French door fridge has 24 cubic feet of storage space and space-saving features like an in-door icemaker, recessed LED lighting, and a compact, recessed water filter, so it has maximum storage space along with a sleek profile in the kitchen. No other counter-depth French door refrigerator has more capacity.*

Plus GeniusCool™ Technology to keep food fresh and chilled filtered water and ice provides refreshment at your fingertips with the simple select dispenser.

  • The Kenmore Elite 7404 counter-depth 3-door refrigerator features high-efficiency thin insulation panels that use less space and provide maximum insulation so you can store more food and keep it fresh.
  • Slim-in-Door Ice Allows 100% use of the top shelf and lets you store more in the door with convenient door bins.
  • Space-saving LED lighting recessed into the top and along the sides of the refrigerator making it easy to see what you're looking for without interfering with storage space.
  • Compact water filter is recessed into the ceiling of the refrigerator so you have more usable top shelf space.
  • Slim Design air filter helps increase top shelf capacity**.
  • Space-saving LED lighting in the bottom of fresh food doors illuminate the freezer bins without interfering with storage space.
  • GeniusCool™ Technology combines Digital Temperature Control, Electronic Sensors, and Multi Air Flow to provide optimum temperature performance.

  • Electronic Temperature Sensors measure multiple temperature points providing feedback for optimum temperature management.
  • With Multi Air Flow Technology strategically placed vents distribute cool air evenly throughout the entire refrigerator.

  • The Pantry Drawer has digital temperature controls with custom temperature settings for Meat, Deli or Produce to help preserve freshness by storing items at their ideal temperature.
  • Vegetables stored in the AirTight™ Crisper retain weight and moisture longer, when compared to a standard crisper bin, resulting in fresher produce.
  • The CleanFlow Air filter circulates air through a charcoal filter to help keep the refrigerator smelling fresh.
  • Chilled filtered water and ice provides refreshment at your fingertips with the simple select dispenser.
  • Water and air filter change indicators let you know when it’s time for a filter change.
  • Save money, energy, and the environment with this ENERGY STAR® Qualified refrigerator.

Excellent Product
This is a very well organized refrigerator and freezer. It was delivered on time and the delivery crew was excellent, efficient and courteous. The unit set up easily and was in operation in no time. The icemaker and in door water unit functions very well and is convenient.

Only lasted 2 years!
Bought this fridge two years ago and we have had many problems with it. The ice maker never worked. When you try to dispense ice from the front, it gets clogged. Sears told us the only way to fix it was to bang on the front to break up the ice. That's convenient. The ice in the door cools every time you open it, so it becomes one big block of ice. Then we got an error core "er ff" which is either the motherboard or the freezer fan. So disappointed in this expensive kenmore product. I would not recommend this product. If you do buy it, make sure to buy the most expensive warranty.

sears is replacing after 4 months, will not get this model again --UPDATED-

I purchased this 4 months ago, the freezer door has always been hard to open. You can practically pull the whole unit across the floor by the freezer door handle. Apparently there is no way to fix it, so the unit has to be replaced. This is the second unit with this problem the tech has seen in the last week. ALSO the bottom portion of the fridge registers at 21 degrees while the top reads 38 degrees. It can not regulate temperature and freezes anything on the bottom half of the fridge. This is a separate issue not related to the clogged hose that is causing the vacuum on the freezer door. ***Update*** I went and looked at the other options Sears had, and none of them had all the features I wanted. I decided mine must have been a fluke and ordered the same model. Guess what, SAME problem PLUS the ice maker leaks. Water drips from the bottom of the refrigerator door and water pools up on the top of the freezer door. The tech said that is a common problem with this model.

Perfect Choice - quiet, spacious and our teenagers love it

Built a new house and needed a counter depth refrigerator that was functional and stylish. This refrigerator far exceeded those requirements. The 24 cu ft is more than enough room for our family of 5 (2 adults and three teenagers) and the internal lighting is bright and full, making it easy to find the items you are looking for. The spacious external water dispenser is a breeze to use and my teenagers can easily fill up their sports water bottles before and after their soccer games. The ice maker makes plenty of ice and my wife especially loves the in-door design of the ice maker. This frig is also one of the quietest I have ever owned. If not for the alarm it makes when a door has been open too long, I would never know it was running. This is a very, very quiet appliance. Even when it makes ice, you can barely hear it. It may be on the pricer side of counter depth refrigerators, but you get what you pay for - and this refrigerator delivers big for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Can't think of a thing I'd change

We love this refrigerator. At first I was afraid that the 4 pound ice capacity wouldn't be enough, but we haven't run out yet. When we know we'll need additional ice, we just empty the ice bin in the included ice tub in the freezer. The door open reminder is a plus, as is the LED lighting.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore 24 cu ft counter depth fridge

Fridge is nice but the freezer is very difficult to open for my wife. I have to open it for her sometimes. It does not have the release handle like some of the comparable fridges. Also, the upper left fridge door seems to want to close harder than the right door, i am guessing because of the ice maker being on the left side.

Refrigerator review

For a counterdepth refrigerator, this refrigerator is designed to maximize the space and does so very well. It also handles the cubed and crushed ice through the door very well. We're two weeks into this and are very pleased with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
