Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrated We moved into our home a year ago and noticed that water was leaking from the fridge all the way down to the kitchen sink. We pulled up the kitchen floor mat and saw major water damage to the wood floors as a result. Cause of issue unknown, but with further investigation saw ice buildup under the freezer tray. Even with correct temperature settings, ice continues to build up every few days causing water to leak out. We are very dissappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed in the quality. We bought this refrigerator (and the matching dishwasher, stove, and microwave) when we remodeled our kitchen. These appliances were expensive but we were assured they were great quality. We have had trouble with the dishwasher, oven, and the refrigerator. For the last several days, the refrigerator has been switching itself into and out of Sabbath mode. Every few minutes we can hear the beep as it switches back and forth. In Sabbath mode, the light and water dispenser do not function. Our old Kenmore refrigerator (now relegated to the garage) has worked perfectly for 20 years. Why can't KitchenAid products work that well?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable - disappointing Completely renovated our kitchen in the summer of 2014. Purchased all new appliances from a solid local dealer. After 3 years, this refrigerator suddenly stopped cooling and to make matters worse actively went into defrost mode. The temperature rose extremely fast and within 3 hours the internal temperature of the refrigerator exceeded the room temperature of 86°F (it was July). Needless to say, the food in the fridge and freezer were trash. We powered the unit off and called the dealer early the next day (the failure occurred on a Sunday). After 3 service calls over a 9 day period, the refrigerator was functioning again. The main control board and evaporator/condenser needed replacement. The control board cost ~$400 to replace although at least one of the service people suggested that the root cause of the failure was actually the other parts which were covered under warranty. Now 7 weeks later the same symptoms have returned, and we've had to trash all of the food. Service coming again tomorrow, but at this point I have zero confidence that this expensive appliance will not continue to give us enormous headaches.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problems after warranty Product had a defective foam insulation which came loose and jammed the evaporator fan. This caused the unit to overheat and the relay switch to stop working. Service gave me a date for a repair one week out, had to use a local repair for the fix. Who can wait a week for a repair especially when the product was a manufacturer defect? Very loud unit as well

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, fits space well, Noisy and High $$$ repairs We purchased an entire Kitchenaid appliance package when we built our home 7 years ago. I needed a cabinet depth refrigerator and this seemed to fit the space best. The refrigerator has ALWAYS been loud and noisy to the point when guests were in the home many asked what those noises were. I called out the dealer we purchased the refrigerator from, he said he could not find anything wrong. I also had an independent appliance repairman listen to it and look at, he too said nothing was wrong. Recently, we were away for a week to come home to our refrigerator setting in a pool of red juices from the thawed foods in the freezer as the compressor went out in a 7 year old refrigerator. I see other reviews mention short lived compressors and expensive repair bills on this model also. We spent the $650 to replace the compressor. The refrigerator does run much more quiet now. Although, I'm happier to have a much quieter kitchen I hope this compressor lasts much longer than the noisy one. Wondering if I purchased a lemon?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Small freezer holds very little. Fridge has cold spots that actually freezes food and destroys fruits and vegetables. Double doors don't close properly frequently leaving one of the doors partially open. Kitchenaid recommended Toronto Appliance Service who came 5 times and couldn't resolve the freezing food issues. This was all in less than a year. Get another fridge, this is a terrible choice.
