        Terrible Investment

              Comments about KitchenAid Built-In French Door Refrigerator:

              Our refrigerator is almost 6 years old. We have had numerous repairs. The freezer drawer tends to ice over on the runners making it difficult to pull the drawer in and out. As a result, the drawer has been left open a crack on numerous occasions causing thawing which left us with spoiled frozen goods. On another note, the drain under the freezer drawer is prone to clog. When we had to have the repairman out to fix the clog, he had to take the entire bottom drawer apart....not an easy repair to do. The rubber stripping on the inside of the upper doors are ripping and continually collect mold even after cleaning frequently, and the rubber stripping that runs along the top of our bottom freezer has split. The Compressor goes on and off too often and is extremely loud, even after cleaning around the compressor... which we have done and continually do. Now we are nervous because we have been told by our repairman that when the electrical panel goes out, which could be any day, they have discontinued the part and cannot replace it. This appliance costs us over $7000. That's a huge investment!! We are not happy with this product...DO NOT PURCHASE!

                          We have owned a KitchenAid Architect Series frog for 15 years, and it finally stopped working. We were overjoyed to find this one, which was a floor model with the "old" handle design. Since we have all KitchenAid appliances in our kitchen, we were very displeased to see that the handle has been completely redesigned now. So we were thrilled that the appliance store had this unused "old" model that we could purchase!

                                We have had our new Fridge/Freezer for a couple of months. I was disappointed to find out after the fact that it is Not energy star. My mistake for not checking out carefully. Love the barn doors on top but the freezer is tiny and it is hard to see what you really have. Ice maker is excellent...actually has large capacity which is nice.

                                      I am so happy to have this fridge. It replaced a 10 year old Monogram that over the years had been nothing but problems. This new fridge is the same size but a French door and the old was a side by side. The difference is amazing, so much more room. It truly fits twice the food and frozen goods of the side by side. The bin adjustments actually do what they claim to do, increasing and decreasing humidity depending on the bin setting. I could not be happier with this purchase

                                            Before we bought this unit, we did a lot of research. We saw some reviews that indicated problems with the freezer. But so far, we have used it for three months, there has no issue with the freezer. The upper double doors shut properly. We are happy with the purchase and it is a good value for the price.

                                                        We have had it for several months now and just like all the other Kitchen Aid Products in my kitchen, it works and looks great.

                                                              My produce rots prematurely in the drawers and I wind up storing most in our prior KitchenAid fridge now in the basement , the ice maker's water filter leaked and damaged our hardwood floors, and the french doors flap open no matter how gently we close the doors.

                                                              We bought this in February 2014 for a new kitchen. The French doors have bounced open from the start, and the friendly repairman said that's the nature of this fridge. It's lame, is what it is. Makes my husband crazy that a follow-up press is required every single time, and with three kids, you can be sure that doesn't always happen. NO, the alarm does not sound if the door is only slightly ajar. The strong seal of a SubZero has me wishing we'd just gone for it.

                                                              Worse yet, in June the waterfilter cracked open (how?? repairman supposes it happened at the factory and took time to become prob) and flooded our kitchen, damaging the brand new hardwood floors.

                                                              The fridge doesn't hold as much as I'd expected, but I have no complaints about the freezer or icemaker. The freezer is well designed and functions perfectly well.

                                                              All in all, a disappointing purchase. If you can afford this fridge, you may want to save elsewhere and upgrade to the Sub Zero.
