Summary: This has been a pain since it was installed - about 2 weeks ago. The ice maker didn't come with it and had to be installed later - another day off from work. The ice falls through the baskets onto the floor. The worst is that there are NO INSTRUCTIONS. What comes with it is all about installation and nothing about moving freezer baskets - which are very inconvenient. The first thing it did was defrost the freezer.
Perfect solution for two of us, looks great, simple design

Summary: We replaced our old side by side with this Stainless KitchenAid single door bottom freezer. I did not want ice maker or water either in the door or inside the fridge. I read tons of reviews and the consistent complaint seems to be that ice makers break and they take up space. Finding a fridge with no ice maker or water was a challenge despite the fact the every sales person I met said they get frequent requests for fridges without ice maker.
Summary: The computer board broke and I was told by the repairman that this model will 95% of the time have this problem after about 6 yrs of use. They don't have a new part available; they have to 'repair' the broken board. It has been 3 weeks and the part has yet to materialize. Am very disappointed that Kitchen Aid is apparently aware of this inherent flaw in the product and hasn't issued a recall, or at least have the part available so it can be fixed quickly.
Summary: bought this fridge for the looks, the shelf that hlds the crispers has cracked twice since the materials (plastic) very cheap! The fridge was changed twice sincc it is noisy when defrosting or when it goes ON cracking noises plastics expanding Very Disappointed !
Summary: I purchased this because I have a wall on the left side and limited space-36 inches. Plently of room for the door to swing with the handle. Very convienent, good inside space, and best of all, it looks good. Good price nice appliance.
Summary: I love my new KitchenAid Architect II series stainless steel fridge. Contrary to the description I found online, it does indeed have slide out shelves, which I like. I took out one of the shelves to better accomodate the things I store in my fridge, but better to have too many shelves than too few! Having a freezer on the bottom and thus the fridge up top has been great for me since the part of the fridge I use the very most is the crisper drawers.
Summary: I searched for a while for a fridge and settled on this one. It's roomy, very quiet, and we LOVE that the water dispenser is inside the fridge and so discreet. Beauty and function in one! Odd that the surface doesn't take magnets. Threw me off a bit, but looks better without them anyway. For what it's worth, I also am VERY pleased with AJ Madison's service.
