Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange noises My refrigerator is making a very strange pinging sound that I cant seem to figure out where its coming from. In addition, the motor seems to be be running very loud.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dissapointed We bought this fridge three years ago. It has an inherent defect where the switches that activate the lights snap off from very casual use. We have had to replace the left side once and the right twice in only three years of use. This is inexcusable in an appliance that is over $7,000.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible built in expensive built in has been nothing but problems for us--will not maintain correct temperature--numerous service calls, many parts replaced--calls to kitchen aid of no help--no one can figure out the problem--is a true LEMON--AVOID this model

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern look I purchased this refrigerator about a month ago. So far I am happy with it. I like that it has 4 smaller drawers for meats, cheeses and veggies. There is plenty space in the frig. The freezer is a little small but I have another one so it's not an issue for me. In the past I have always had a side by side with the drink/ice dispenser on the door. I like the look of the french doors better but I do miss the drink dispenser. Mainly having the ice on the door. I wish there was a way to get the ice out of the bin without having to touch the ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lines Shopped for a replacement 42" built in to replace a dead 15 year old KitchenAid model and found prices all over the place. Lucked out yo find a supplier who was remodeling their showroom and got a 42" floor model for half of the other vendors I shopped and they hauled off the old unit. I was also able to package a deal to replace some other kitchen appliances as well. Love the styling and the Updated look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Investment 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank goodness we found you. 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks beautiful, fridge is roomy 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.
