What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Many Problems! We bought this refrigerator because it was top rated in Consumer Reports, but it has been nothing but trouble. After about a year, the casing underneath the water dispenser started to rust, and has only gotten worse over the years. The rubber flaps that are meant to make a tight seal on the doors have become covered in black mildew. I have tried cleaning this with every kind of cleaner, including bleach, and nothing takes it off. And now the ice maker leaks so we have water dripping inside the ice compartment and out the ice dispenser. Two years ago, the water line started leaking onto the floor and we had to have that replaced. This fridge was way too expensive to have all these problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Minor repairs are expensive to fix The water line developed a very small hole. I was not allowed to buy the part to fix myself, ended up costing me over $300. Also the articulating (mullion) door flap spring broke. They say I can't buy the $4 spring I have to buy the hole flap for $80 plus. The fridge is 4 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXTRA COLD, EXTRA ROOM I've had this refrigerator for a little over a year and I love it. There is so much more room than in a side by side style. It keeps food very cold. I didn't get the 3rd drawer style because I didn't think I would get into that drawer that much, but we do. I'd consider that option next time. The water dispenser is a little odd, because of the location (in the very front of the opening- the ice comes out at the back) but works very well. It doesn't make as much ice as some, but has a bin in the freezer where you can dump the ice already made. I knew this already before purchasing and it really hasn't been a problem. I use lots of ice and it is sufficient for me. If another ice loving person is here, then I need to dump the ice bin at night to make extra ice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would be 5 stars if filtered water came out faster We love the fridge. Plenty of room for what we use (after removing one of the shelves). The controls are easy to use and the filter is simple to replace. The only gripe we have is the water dispenser is slow. Compared to other refrigerators that friends/family have, this seems like it's about 1/2 the speed of theirs. It does the job, but it gets tiring having to hold an ever-increasing weight longer than necessary. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ice Maker Ice Maker in my fridge quit working right after the warranty was up and i am looking for parts and can't even find a parts breakdown of the unit. I am not gonna pay someone to replace the fan in my fridge when it is only a couple screws and a plug to replace it. had 1F error code which is ice fan which is the fan that blows the cold air into the slim plus ice system on the door to make it cold enough to freeze the ice. When the fan quits you can't get ice or water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ice maker and freezer problems For the first year there were no issues. I begin to notice water pooling in front of the freezer door. After a thorough investigation, I determined the freezer was collecting water in the bottom and it was leaking onto the floor. Once a week I clear the ice to avoid the damage. The ice-maker in the door consistently jams and has to be emptied and cleared.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good, minor problem's and one complaint. Complaint is ice maker is too small and clogs up at times. Needs second ice maker in freezer compartment. Minor problem is plastic door shelves are week and had to be reinforced with a epoxy glue.
