Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like it but a big problem with ice I like the refrigerator. Got it 6/2013 Starting 2/2016 we have had water on the floor that has leaked from the freezer compartment floor. Every few days we have to chip away the ice or we have puddles on the floor. Our last refrigerator was 28 years old. We were told when this was delivered that we would be lucky to get 8 years out of this one. We got 3 problem free years. My husband is 77 and wants to get rid of it. To much hassle to try to defrost it, take it apart, etc. We got it for the water dispenser inside. We are the neighborhood grandparents and at the time no one had a water dispensing refrigerator. We didn't want kids messing around with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product The ice maker leaks and pools on the bottom of the freezer. Besides having to throw out food due to them getting wet and freezing over it has leaked onto my wood floors and ruined them. I always thought KitcheAid was top of the line. Not this frig.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 service calls and it still buzzes loudly In June 2014 I spent $8,000 on a whole set of new KitchenAid appliances, including this refrigerator. In November 2016 it started to buzz loudly. A technician came and leveled it. But that really did not solve the problem and it got a lot worse in February 2017. The technician took the unit apart, and found that the compressor coil is pressing up against the bottom of the freezer. He took some bit of rubber out of his toolkit and crammed it in that space. That solved the problem - but only temporarily. The buzzing started again and I am again calling for service. I bought an extended warranty that goes through 2018, so these service calls are free. But what happens when that runs out? Do I need to pay hundreds of dollars a year to resolve what seems clear to me is a design flaw?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware Short Lived Icemaker I Bought this four years ago and have been very happy with it, especially because it is counter depth. However, the icemaker just died and repairman demonstrated its faulty design...$300 to replace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All of my kitchen aid products didn't even last 3 years Fridge ice maker doesn't work and water leaks and freezes on freezer floor then melts an ruined my wood floor,on 2nd microwave, my oven smoked the cord behind it could have burnt my new house down. Not happy at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space We bought a counter depth refrigerator which I wasn't thrilled about. I absolutely love it, great storage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Freezer started to leak after three years Pro: It has all you need for a fridge Con: The freezer started to leak after 3 years. The phone line of their customer service will drop call and they will have to transfer you to another line, and then you have to explain the whole thing all over again. This could happen more then one time, which is very annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money We have had this refrigerator for 4 years it is so noisy you can't hear yourself think. The ice maker only lasted two years, the drain tube was blocked with ice, leaked water on our hardwood floors and ruined them. The technician that came out, said that this was a problem with this model and we had to pay $150.00 to have the drain tube replaced. We are never buying any Kitchenaid appliances or Whirlpool because they are both the same company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Refrigerator! I love how spacious this refrigerator is! It's very quiet as well. I had to remove one of the shelves to fit taller bottles. But even without that shelf there is plenty of shelf space in the fridge part. I wish the stainless steel was fingerprint proof. Overall, I am very pleased with this appliance.
