Love, Love. Lover!
I did a lot of research before I bought this refrigerator. Went to every store and online. Consumer report gave this a great review also. This refrigerator is huge. I have never been able to fill it up! It is so easy to organize and you can see everything. The freezer is a dream because nothing gets lost. This is the bes fridge out there so stop looking and pull the trigger.

Issue with Icemaker
We purchased this this refrigerator to match the other Kenmore Elite appliances for our home in October 2014. Within 3 weeks the ice maker broke. We called for a repair and the repair guy ordered the item. Sears called and indicated that the part was on back-order and wouldn't be available until the end of December. After speaking with them, Sears offered to deliver another refrigerator. The fridge was delivered mid December and by January 10th, the ice maker broke again. We have been told the part is on back-order again and have set up to have yet another fridge delivered. I only pull 2-3 cups of ice from the machine a day, maybe 10 cups one weekend a month so it is not wear and tear. The fridge is awesome, it is the fridge we want. Ours is very quiet unlike others have indicated, except the ice falling in the ice maker when it was working. The customer service at Sears for the most part has been very pleasant. The only issue we have is with the ice maker and the fact that parts are unavailable. We do not like removing everything from our fridge every 2-3 weeks to have another delivered and now we have concerns after the warranty ends. I do not believe that the trouble we are having is worth the price or the idea of owning a dream fridge so we can not recommend this item.

Great Fridge Tons Of Space

I went with this model because of the extra cubic feet and the simplified front door for water and ice. The comperable model had a much more complicated set up with lots of buttons and functions that would have confused others when visiting  so I went with this simpler version   Otherwise this model has lots of space in the freezer plus the extra drawer to hold extra ice for parties and such is a real plus.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

The refrigerator gives you lots of room. It is quieter than my previous GE refrigerator. I love this refrigerator. I only have had it for 1 week, but I can tell that my vegetables stay fresher.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Seems to be a nice refridge. Very well lighting inside. Took the chance with the ice maker heard bad reviews about them. I am willing to give it a try. Kinda a bummer magnets won't stick to the front but you have the sides to use

Poor quality

I took delivery of this refrigerator along with the matching stove, microwave & dishwasher Oct. 2014. I had a tech come out today to replace the computer board and another part so the fridge would defrost. It had a ton of ice built up behind the back plastic panel & it was causing food to freeze in the fridge. It worked for about an hour and failed. I have the same error code as before the control buttons, water dispenser & ice maker wont work. I have to wait till tomorrow for a tech to tell me they have to order more parts and come back next week to try and fix the problem. Disappointed in the product & service. Spend your money on a fridge that doesn't have a computer controlling it. FYI I also had problems with the stove & microwave after a month.

Don't buy this. Waste of money.

Dont waste you time and money with this. It always breaks. They have lot of known problems with this model. First time they said mother board was broken since we used ice maker. Then fan. Then they said it was over freezing in the freezer area and fan wont work again so they installed a defrost fan. Then it stopped cooling. Now it is just not freezer entire fride is not working. All the food was damaged multiple times. All this in span of 3 months. They wont even give an appointment in less than 10 days even enritre fridge was broken. Worst service.

rust bucket

The functionality of this fridge is fine and accommodates my large family. I am extremely disappointed that my fridge that is only 6 months old has rust covering all of the stainless steel doors. The company claims that it is only a cosmetic problem and will not replace them under the warranty. I will not be purchasing another kenmore product.

Very nice unit so far

Only had this unit for a week, but so far we really like it. Sent a fairly new French door GE to the garage as a beer fridge. The GE was a little quieter but couldn't stand such narrow compartments. This Kenmore allows us to put anything in and makes it easy to find anything. Love the door in a door for accessing frequently used items. Only con I have is there's no drip tray for the ice/water dispenser. If it gives no problems for a number of years then I'd give it 5 stars.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Purchased this refrigerator in late September '14 from Sears when we updated all our appliances with our kitchen remodel. Wow this thing is loud. Constantly sounds like it's running in overdrive. At first we thought it was just getting to its cooling setting but after a few months we called Sears to have it checked out. Apparently the noise is "normal" and they can't do anything to make it quieter. Something about "these new refrigerators have more fans to increase efficiency". Great, more efficiency...thanks a lot...I guess I'll deal with the V8 engine running in my kitchen from now on to save a few bucks a month. Everything else about the appliance is good except for the noise. The noise factor alone warrants the poor rating. My wife and I have bought over 10 brand new appliances from Sears for 2 properties in the past 3 years. We're actively buying more real estate properties to rehab and rent but we will not be going back to Sears for appliances after this experience.

Just Perfect

Really like the large freezer and refrigerator sections, Easy to reach and find items in freezer without digging around. Ice maker and water on door itself is wonderful and it makes plenty too! So much storage throughout.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
