Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pieces keep braking I bought the Kitchenaid KBRS22KWMS6 in mai 2012. In late 2015 I needed to change a piece for the botton freezer drawer since water would leak. Now September 2017, it's the refrigerator turn to have a problem... it's not cooling anymore. A bit more than 5 years for this fridge and already 2 issues... Don't waste your money!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caution?? This refrigerator is now 3yrs old and already had to take care of 2 problems. Plus I find the warranty is not that great on most parts that are going to go on it first? (Relay switch)....First repair for the drainage problem to replace the drainage hose. KitchenAid did mail the part no charge but I had to install this myself.. Then recently a clicking sound and had a service technician $100. later to inform my fridge is ok? Apparently you must clean your bottom coils and the back of the fridge remove the panel and vacuum all the dust. Or else your compressor will over heat causing your relay switch to break.... He recommended do this once a year..Plus you should invest in a Coil brush through an appliance store or places like Home Depot (ProClean Appliance Brush)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fridge Apart From One Design Flaw Purchased this model three years ago and was very happy with performance until recently, when started having the same issues described by other reviewers - namely slab of ice forming continuously on the freezer bottom until it stopped the freezer drawer from closing properly and meltwater started leaking out onto our kitchen floor. From research online, it seemed this was a common problem with this model series and was due to a poorly designed drain outlet at the rear of the fridge that becomes clogged over time. Phoned the KitchenAid/Whirlpool support line and they were quite helpful. At no charge, they mailed me a replacement part (a P-Trap Drain Tube Kit) for the problem drain outlet. The support line guy told me that if the problem had occurred in the first two years after purchase, then KitchenAid would also have paid the labour costs for someone to come and install it on the fridge. So I ended up doing the part replacement myself with the help of an easy-to-find YouTube DIY video. Not really that difficult and I wouldn't really call myself a handyman. Three months later and no further incidents of ice forming on the freezer bottom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissappointed I have had this refirgerator for two years now, and love the styling, space and how easy it is to clean. Unfortunately the freezer is prone to constant freeze ups and once every 6 days I have to remove a slab of ice (see photo) from the bottom of the freezer to prevent it from dripping/leaking onto the floor. I attribute this to a design flaw in the manufacture of the refrigerator, and since it is no longer covered by warranty I have had to research a solution on my own. I have contacted Kitchenaid/Whirlpool on several occasions to see if they could provide a solution or even parts to corrct the issue, without resolve. I expect better quality from this brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor engineering!! The unit does a good job cooling and freezing food, but 4 times since purchase in 2010, the drain has clogged and ice and water have backed up in the freezer compartment and leaked onto the floor beneath the unit. It also is very loud cycling on and off. I have complained to the manufacturer in the beginning, but have given up anticipating any lasting remedy to the problem. Again, tomorrow I have the fifth repair for the same problem in 5 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well designed fridge We bought 5 Kitchen Aid appliances when we renovated our kitchen last year. They are good value. We prefer the freezer on the bottom on this model as everything is more accessible. Would prefer larger vegetable crispers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully Designed This appliance is replacing an all fridge that had it's compressor fail just after the warranty. This is the forth NEW fridge that we bought in 12 years. We decided to try a different brand than any of the others we had. The salesman said that Kitchen-Aid were the best. I hope he is right, and this one lasts longer than it's predecessors. We bought extended warranty on the fridge, just n case.
