Get an extended warranty on KitchenAid Architect Fridge

CeeDub, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: The narrower measurements of our kitchen doorways forced us to look at non-standard sized refrigerators. We decided on the Architect series, seeing that the specs met our restrictions and relying on the well-known KitchenAid name behind it. The first 18 months were fine, but having just passed the two year mark, we find ourselves having had to defrost this fridge 4 times in the past 6 months.

Poorly designed drawers

Bears fan, ABT Electronics
27 November 2013
  • Summary: The crisper drawers do not stay pushed in and the one on the right catches all the time on the deli drawer temperature control. I wish the freezer baskets had a solid bottom instead of wire so ice particles didn't fall out when the drawers open. At this price, the ice maker should be factory installed and included. Overall I'm very disappointed. It is going to be exchanged.
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Bad Ice Maker, Flimsy Shelves, Poor Layout

Just Awful

Jean, ABT Electronics
5 September 2013
  • 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.
  • Cons: Can't Move Freezer Shelve, Ice Falls Through, Inconvenient Freezer, Limited Shelving Options, No Instructions, Poor Layout

Great product, though not for short kids

CBP in Nashville, AJ Madison

  • 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.

Fantastic fridge!

Sophie, AJ Madison

  • 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.

  • Summary: Great features, but would have like external water distribution instead of internal. Everything else is great.
