Summary: This is the best home ice machine on the market. I have had 4. However, it runs very hot and almost non-stop. The problem is that this machine will BURN OUT in 2-3 years. The compressor runs so hot it will die, and you will be faced with a $750 repair bill.
Summary: I owed a Kenmore Ice Maker that lasted fourteen years.When it went bad i purchased another one that was still making ice when i built my new house and that was about eight years after it was installed. I purchased all Kitchen Aid applicances for my new home.
Summary: "I have owned several of these ice makers over the years. I strongly recommend the extended warranty as the nature of the "beast" is that they tend to have maintenance problems particularly if you have hard water.
