Excerpt: In our opinion this refrigerator is cheaply constructed, especially for the price. Our icemaker has stopped making ice four times in two years. The hinges on the bottom of the door (plastic) have broken and the door will not close on its own.
Excerpt: Refrigerator is 1 month old, door hinge closer is super cheep creaks and snaps when opening door and sheds plastic dust if you let go the handle will hit counter, door stop thin metal flexes and allows door to go 180 deg and hits granite counter need to pull out fridge to keep handles clear making...
Great Look, great Features, But get your ear plugs when the unit is filling the ice tray!
29 November 2014
Excerpt: We just got this unit, after researching for about 3 months. I am happy with the looks, happy with the features, but this frig is LOUD. When the frig is running water to fill the ice tray, it sounds like a fog horn going off in the middle of the night. The noise is a deal-breaker for me.
Excerpt: I'M DISAPPOINTED TO LEARN (T00 LATE) THAT THE ICE CUBE BIN IS SO SMALL, THEREBY LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF CUBES THAT CAN BE SAVED FOR LATER USE.. ALSO, THAT THE BIN MUST BE REMOVED IN ORDER TO TURN THE ICE CUBE MAKER ON/OFF..THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
Excerpt: We have had our fridge for 2 years and I would not buy another one. Despite being fixed several times, doors won't stay level and fridge side doesn't close on its own. The motor and ice maker are noisy and the ice maker takes about 24 hours to refill if you empty it.
KitchenAid 26 Cu Ft Standard-depth Side-by-side Refrigerator
8 July 2014
Excerpt: The FRONT of this refrigerator looks nice and sleek, however, that is about the only positive statement that I have besides it does work, so far. When we ordered this refrigerator it was next to another at the store so I did not see the grey plastic sides.
Excerpt: This fridge looks very nice and my wife is a long time Kitchen Aid fan... however this product met the very definition of planned obsolescence. Before the warranty was up, we had to replace three drawers that broke due to tiny pieces of plastic that hold the handles in place.
Excerpt: This refrigerator came with our new house. I am so disappointed with the room inside! I wish I could upgrade to a bigger fridge and trade this one in! Small ice maker, would not suggest the side by side!!!
Excerpt: We bought this refrigerator because our old one was making noises and we thought it was on it's last legs, so we figured we'd rather enjoy more time with our new refrigerator than wait until the old one went.The first thing we discovered was that even though there was a lot more room than our old...
Cons: Cheap Bins That Break, Poor Layout, Unreliable
Excerpt: Initially, the control panel (for lack of better name) on the door didn't work: lights showed that door was open when it wasn't and vice versa. We had a repair guy out the first day or two we had it. Today I'll be calling about an ice maker that doesn't work. Grrrr....
