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.

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.

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.

so far so good!

We purchased this refrigerator two weeks ago. So far, it is operating beautifully. It is whisper quiet--can barely tell it is on. The ice maker is also very quiet. It is so roomy and the inside lighting is amazing. The air tight vegetable bin keeps produce fresher longer. I have had lettuce in there for the entire time and it is still fresh and crisp. The freezer is well organized with 3 pull out drawers of different sizes. The middle drawer is perfect for frozen veggie and fruit bags. You can lay them out flat and see exactly what you have on hand. I am forever done with side-by-side refrigerators. We could not be happier with our purchase. I will review again in 6 months with an update.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great frig

We bought the Kemore to replace a refrigerator that only lasted a year. See my review for details. We like the icemaker in the door, it gives use more useable shelf space. It is easy to see the amount of ice in the ice maker. The ice capacity is a little less, but for us it is not a problem. The refrigerator is a bit noisier than our previous one. When nothing else is on you know when it is running, but it is not bothersome. Some of the knocks others have with this appliance are not an issue for us. Overall we are very happy. I'll post an update in a year on the reliability.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Stick with the repairing

We purchased our Kenmore Elite in 2011 during the Labor Day sale and was put into service in our newly built home in December 2011. Since then we have had 9 service calls on the Ice Maker, of which 5 of the service calls were to replace parts - - the other 4 were diagnosis. Every part of the Ice Maker was replaced, except the container in the door. It turned out that the DOOR was the problem - - the insulation had shrunk, exposing the water line, so the water was freezing in the line and failing to fill the container where the ice cubes are formed. Finally, the serviceman came back after replacing the door, and also replaced the fans in the freezer department on a RECALL by LG. I recently received a legal document indicating a class action lawsuit against LG/Kenmore, in which they are offering a one year extension on warranty as settlement. The ice maker has been a KNOWN problem for the past 4 years.

Not happy

3 repair visits in 4 months, that should say it all. The right side of the door does not open enough to get the crisper drawer out. The fan in the freezer broke, causing the entire compressor in the back to freeze up. 10 days to get the first repair person out here. All in all, I will never buy another Kenmore again.

Love this!

I never realized how difficult choosing a new refrigerator was. We just completed a kitchen renovation and kept the old one for about 6 months because we could not find the perfect model that 1. fit in the space 2. had an interior that worked for our lives 3. priced right. I found all three with this model. I love the flexibility of the interior and the lighting. It is very quiet and the Ice Maker works fine.
