Product Description

Kenmore Elite 31 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator - Storage Aplenty

Innovative design features like the unique Grab-N-Go door define the Kenmore Elite French door refrigerator 7206. This Kenmore Elite bottom-freezer refrigerator includes features like the unique Tilt-N-Take Freezer Drawer, making it even easier to access food in the 3-tiered pull-out freezer, and the SlideAway Shelf, which allows for more convenient storage of tall items. The tall, slim in-door ice maker/water dispenser lets you fill pitchers with ease. GeniusCool™ and CleanFlow™ technologies maintain the perfect balance of humidity and temperature, keeping food fresh longer.

  • The industry-first Grab-N-Go™ Door features a quick-access compartment that puts lunches, drinks and all your favorites in your hands fast.
  • The Tilt-N-Take Freezer Drawer provides fast access to frozen foods for easy storage and meal prep with better organization.
  • The slim in-door icemaker makes fresh ice fast, while its reduced size increases storage space both on the shelves and in the door bins.
  • A full-width, gourmet pantry drawer stores party platters, pizzas, pies, trays and more while clearing shelf space for better organization and easier storage.
  • Air-tight humidity-controlled crisper drawers keep vegetables supple and moist longer than standard crisper bins, so flavor and freshness stays around longer.
  • 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.
  • Genius Cool™ features dual evaporators that cool your refrigerator and freezer separately to help eliminate wilted lettuce and freezer-burned ice cream.

Love the "Grab-Go" feature
The refrigerator keeps perfect temperature which was so easy to set. The french doors provide a panoramic view of the contents. The lighting is terrific.The supplemental 3rd door will enhance energy efficiency. We do not hear the unit operate. We are a family of 2 adults so I am not using the storage pantry as was suggested. ( no snacks or juice cartons) I have devised my own arrangement which works for our lifestyle perfectly. I have never had a freezer drawer but already I know that I will never go back to the side-by-side again. Everything is in view. Hats off to this design engineer!!!

Do not buy this fridge!!!!!
We have a large family so we bought this fridge for space. We were almost to the end of our warranty when the water dispenser started leaking and we had an error code and the water dispenser didn't work. The repairman left and a few hours later we got a new error code. Both motors had gone out and a wire in the fridge was loose. The repairman advised us that this fridge has this same problem all the time and is not well made. Sears is sending us a new fridge but its the same model and I am worried it will have the same problems. We were lucky it was still under warranty or we would now be the owners of a $3,000 piece of junk. Now we will have to pay 250 a year just to keep this thing under warranty because I don't trust it's quality! They need to do a recall on these! I never write reviews but had to warn others!

So far, so good!

I am reserving a 5 star rating once I've had this refrigerator a bit longer. I'm totally pleased at the moment. The biggest complaint I had read before purchasing this refrigerator is the the ice maker didn't always work. Well, it has performed quite well so far. I'm in love with the space and the grab-n-go door. Looks like I've got a winner.

Worst money ever spent!!!

I waited for this model to go on sale and ran to Sears to purchase. I was replacing a 20yr old refrigerator that worked fine, but wanted the look and the inside layout of this one. It has been SUCH A DISSAPOINTMENT! Water dispenser never worked well...trickled. When they called me close to the 1yr mark to tell me my warranty was expiring, I explained that the water dispenser never worked. Lady on the line trying to encourage me to buy a warranty. Why should I do that on a brand new fridge? Well at exactly the one year mark - ice maker quit working. Then shortly after the bonus front door latch quit working and now you have to open by pulling from the top or just the trap door opens - MADDENING! you try to close the door and it will not grab...have to slam to close over and over. AND...the water filter that has to be replaced every few months is $75!! No need for us now because the ice and water doesn't work anyway! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Could cry every time I look at it and have only had it a little over a year.

Icemaker or motor board going out

After 10 months the refrigerator started making noise and the water dispenser would stop working, error message ER IF. After some random amount of time passed the noise would go away and the dispense would start working again.

It's Big

Had this frig about 6 months now, only couple minor complaints. Not really a complaint, but it's a lot bigger than the old frig. Had to modify my cabinet above the frig and it does stick out past the cabinets quite a bit. They advertise the full width deli drawer as a plus, but I see it as a negative. Being a full width drawer, you have to open both French doors to open it. And for as big as the refrigerator space is, it seems like freezer is kind of small. After that being said, still happy with the purchase. Grab-n-Go is nice for condiments. Lots of space in the refrigerator. I've actually removed one of the selves to make more room for tall items like gallon jugs and 2-liters. Seems like my electric bill has gone down about $15 a month replacing it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Poorly designed dispenser

We have had this refrigerator for about 6 months. At about 2 months the dispenser would not shut off the water or ice unless you knew how to wiggle and pull the actuator out before overfilling the cup. It started out doing this intermittently and over the next 3 months got to the point where it never shut off unless you pulled/wiggled the actuator. Called Sears warranty service and they sent out a repairman. After watching the serviceman disassemble the dispenser, seeing that he simply pulled a spring out of a pen and put some tension on the lever, I asked if he had seen this before. He said that he had fixed a least a dozen this way. I don't know how long this "fix" is going to work or last, but I think Sears should stand behind their products and do a recall on a defective design. This should be fixed correctly!!! I for one will not ever purchase another Kenmore product if Sears fails to fix this the right way! Don't purchase this refrigerator!
