Surprising Space Saver
We have a small kitchen, about 12'x8'. When I first investigated purchasing this large built-in professional style Kenmore Pro Side-by-Side Refrigerator, I thought it would be crazy for our kitchen. It would definitely be worth more than anything else in the kitchen, too. About 1-1/2 years ago, I ran across this fridge at a Sears outlet store. It was a return and had some significant scratches with a large gouge in the top grill, but the price was half the store sale price, so we decided to go for it. The worst part of the experience was the delivery which we had to hire privately since the fridge is so large. We managed to crack the interior freezer door in the process, but everything else survived. The top grill was easily replaced, and I just live with the scratches. It turns out I really love this fridge, and it was probably the smartest thing we could have done for our small kitchen. The beauty of this model is that it is built-in and is only counter-depth. In the end, it takes up less floor space than our older, smaller fridge model. It has opened up our walking path considerably. Basically, we acquired a lot more food storage space while also acquiring more floor space. Our kitchen is several inches larger! So don't rule this one out just because you have a small kitchen. If you have room to build a cabinet around it, consider it. First of all, I never would have willingly purchased a stainless appliance. However, this model was only available in stainless, so I live with that. The stainless does make that side of the room appear darker than the white fridge used to. It does have nice clean lines and looks very professional in the kitchen. I think it will be a selling feature for the house. One strange thing about the exterior is that the top "grill" is not actually a grill. I think the actual professional fridges have real grills. This one should since the fridge has no other way to ventilate. That is probably a poor design feature. The interior is very bright with plenty of lighting everywhere. It is wonderful. I can see everything nicely. Because this fridge is counter depth, one thing to adjust to is the fact that the shelves are not very deep. Some people will find this to be a negative feature. I, however, think it is wonderful because I always hated pulling items off the front to reach items in the back. Nothing is very far back on this model. I can fit a 9x13" pan with handles towards the front and back of the fridge, but I daresay there are even some of those pans which would probably not fit. The door shelves are also very narrow, but they hold plenty since there are 5 spanning the tall door. The things I have enjoyed the most of all are the large drawers! There are 3 large drawers that I fill with all my fresh fruits and veggies and cheese or whatever else needs a spot. Since I can just toss things in the drawers, I don't have to worry about them sliding off each other and off a shelf. Plus, it is nice to be able to pull the drawers out for the items in the back. The freezer also has nice drawers. Very convenient. Of course, the water/ice dispenser is nice on the front of the fridge even though it doesn't accept containers as large as many other fridge designs do. This fridge is VERY quiet, and that is a nice feature. Most of the time, you don't hear it. When the compressor cycles on, there is a slight humming. The fan can be loud when you open the freezer, but usually it can't be heard outside the door. Some point in the cycle also emits a quiet chirping type noise. This is very small, though. As far as problems go, unfortunately, we required a $300 repair barely a year out of purchasing the fridge. I think it was something to do with the evaporator. There was water leaking from the top down through the fridge. Apparently, it is a common problem with these. Not that the repairman who came out from Sears had any clue what to do. (Note on Sears repairmen: Not impressed. It is not reassuring to have the guy show up and stand in your kitchen and say "hmm." when he sees your fridge. It is also not reassuring to have the supervisor who has been on the job 30 years not have a clue what is wrong, either. I think I would try a private company next time. This was the first I had not used a private repairman.) Also, we end up with water under the freezer door sometimes. This appears to be caused by water sitting in the dispenser area and then running down through the door. I know because I tested it. You would think this area could be sealed off since water typically sits here, but for some reason, it is not. Unfortunately, most appliances these days are made to die quickly. I'm guessing this will be no different. It is made by Samsung, and I'm not sure their reputation is the greatest. Meanwhile, though, I really DO love the fridge. All the features are nice, the space and space-saving are wonderful, and it has a very nice appearance.

13 repairs and it won't keep safe stable temperature
MAJOR problem with stable cooling, in our 7th month, 13th repairs, 4 entire fridge loss of grocery, food poisoning from spoiled foods due to unstable cooling system randomly ranging from 38-59 deg. major condensation in upper shelf, it "rains" on down, sears won't replace this lemon, we have to wait yet again for another part and their efforts to fix again. Sears will not support a replacement till 4 parts have been replaced. We are at our 4th part, in this new high end unit. Never never again...

Great once you finish building it

Wouldn't have purchased this frig if I would have read the reviews first. But too late, already installed. Told the wife we would check it out for 60 days and depending on how things went, we would keep or return. Like others here, freezer worked fine but frig wouldn't get below 48 degrees. (the temp on gages read 38 degrees) This frig has its own evaporator in the ceiling of the frig section. On the evaporator is a sensor that turns on the fan to circulate the air in the frig. Well, someone at the factory neglected to install the connector at the end of the wires and plug in. She now works great! If your having the same problem, open door for a minute and see if you can feel the air blowing from the vent that runs vertical from top to bottom in the rear. If not, the fan is not kicking on because the sensor is not hooked up. My biggest complaint is that the analog gages are just repeaters of the digital gages. I would have thought they would give you the inside temp. Also, the manuals Samsung supplied (even though it says electrolux inside the door) the techs are worthless. The pictures are black and white and are so blurred you can't tell if your looking at a frig or the inside of a septic tank. We now love the frig but will keep the 3 year warranty. We also bought the Electrolux oven/microwave combo that has the exact same handles as this frig.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I paid how much for this P*S?!?

I purchased this brand new Kenmore Pro refrigerator to replace our 31 year old SubZero. We expected it to be more energy efficient than the old behemoth that stood in its place. It is nicely styled and I love having an exterior water and ice dispenser on the door. That is where my "pros" end. This refrigerator is terrible. Do NOT buy one. Since its purchase date of June 2011, we have had over 8 service calls, though none seem to fall into the time frame of the "No Lemon Guarantee". We have filed for 2 food replacement claims at $250/year. I have missed at least 20 days of work waiting for service technicians. It has the same problem over and over again: It freezes food in the refrigerator. We lost an entire Spring's harvest of lettuce in this machine. We had to buy a dorm fridge to put tender greens in. After paying over $6k for a refrigerator, I expect it to work properly. After 8 service calls in 2 years, it should be flawless. No more Kenmore Pros for us. Never. Ever. Again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love-hate relationship

Bought this three years ago and did research at the time, and the only negative thing I read was that the ice cubes came out too fast. It was on sale for $6,000. Glad I bought the warranty as I will have my fifth service call in a week. For some reason, when there is a power outage, the fridge comes back on, but won't resume temperatures. I have lost three freezers of frozen meat. They have replaced the mother board and three switches. Don't know what they will do this time, but according to the gal on the phone, I qualify for a replacement. We will see. I will come back to let everyone know. If it were not for this, I actually love the refrigerator and everyone is always impressed with it, but now I am wondering if I made a mistake.

I had to chime in to voice my utter dissapointment and disbelief that SEARS would charge a premium for this this sub par product line and offer it to the publiic. I have the full line of "Por Series" products in my kitchen in our new home we purchased in 2008. The total package for everything refridgerator, wall oven, stove top, dishwasher, and microwave (Elite Series) totaled over $9,000 retail. We have had major issues with every single appliance, but this refridgerator tops them all. We had the extended warranty purchased on multiple occasions, so it covered sum of the cost of repairs. However, over the past 5 years of ownership we have spent at least $2000 in warranties and repairs for the refridgerator alone. I am running out of space so I will cut to the chase. I cannot put into words my dissatisfaciton with SEARS and their handling of all the consumers that have bought this product line. CEO take NOTICE you are losing CUSTOMERS when you ignore issues of this magnitude.

Kenmore Pro Model# 40483

I have had this unit for Kenmore Pro for around 6 months. I have had everything replaced because the freezer will not keep temp. Ice melts in the ice ben and I can't get the door open to shut the ice maker off. Lost food twice and temp will rise to 26 degrees and then go back down. Yes compressor was replaced along with lots of other parts like the control board twice. Sears is replacing the unit as it can?t be fixed. I?m going to buy the Kitchenaid 48 inch. Buyer be ware on this unit as it looks good but has to many moving parts that are very expensive.

Great looks but a few problems

Bought this fridge 3 yeas ago because it looked great and had the most interior space we coudl find. But little problems like the temperature not resetting after power outages or recently a plastic part, where the water filter attaches, sprung a leak. That shouldn't happen on a 3 year old high end fridge.

Water & Ice dispenser paddles are made of cheap plastic!

Unbelievable! This high-end appliance has the water and ice dispenser paddles made out of cheap plastic. There is stronger plastic used to make McDonald's Happy Meal toys! $341 to repair which will break again given the cheap plastic that is used!! Don't buy this appliance.
