Very Spacious! Outstanding Refrigerator!
Ok so this refrigerator is excellent! (this is week 5 since I purchased it). Very quiet, very spacious! I want to say that I know someone who has this model, smaller cu. Ft. (about 3 years ago) with a touch screen, and I am glad they changed that! They have had nothing but problems with it. Some people complain about the left door ice storage, what do you expect? It?s basically like that on all French door type designs, buy a side by side instead if this is your concern. Our MAIN concern was the food storage with a family of 4, so that?s why we went big. Nice upgraded ice storage bin on the bottom for extra is fine. Unless you have larger parties, you shouldn?t have issues running out. We also thought that the freezer came with a flip out shelf located on the door, I do know the 31 cu. ft. model had it, but doing some measurements, I don?t think that shelf would be able to fit and close the freezer door. Maybe that?s why it was eliminated? I was even thinking of buying the part from the 31 cu. Ft. model and installing it until I realized it may not fit. Don?t let other lemon reviews change your mind (buy the extended warranty if this is your concern). Very glad we deiced on this model! Love it!

Do Not Buy- Money down the drain
Purchased the Fridge in November of 2013 and the problems began. The freezer is defrosting on it's own, all my food is melting. 4 Technicians came, one changed the parts and three do no know how to fix it. They keep calling for technical support. Sears Customer Service is not great. I would never buy anything from Sears again. Taking time off from work to constantly have technicians come to my house and not fix anything and wasting money on food that I have to throw away everyday. Sears doesn't seem to care. They need to replace my fridge and refund my money from all the trouble and food I wasted.

Good refrigerator, slow undersized ice maker

Very large refrigerator. Small freezer drawer would come off track occasionally, but Sears sent a replacement quickly. Still not clear what caused the issue, but it now works fine. Clear plastic freezer drawer does stay covered in frost, but has not caused any issues. We do like having 3 freezer drawers. The tilt to open freezer drawer is awkward at times and would prefer it just stay vertical. The door ice maker will not keep up with family of 4 in the summer, we run out frequently. We luckily kept our our old fridge in the garage and hooked up the ice maker. Realize that as the frige gets larger, it is deeper and not wider, so it will extend farther into the kitchen and items will get buried behind other items on shelves. If I had to do it again I would have bought 31 cu-ft unit and saved $400. I would also prefer separate levers on the door for water and ice. Since we have to hit the keypad buttons to switch between ice and water every time.

Don't Buy This Refrigerator

Just like other have said the freezer intermittently quits working and everything defrosts. Bought this refrigerator new in Feb 2014. 1st time it happened was in March 2014. Service tech replaced the main circuit board. 2nd time it happened was May 2014. Service tech came out and it was working fine by the time tech arrived. Happened again in June 2014. Service tech will be here this weekend. I removed the top freezer drawer when it happened and noticed the back wall of the freezer was iced over (almost a solid sheet) but very thin as I could chip it away with my hands. Also noticed there was ice build up inside the two vents in the back wall. This ice interferes with the defrosting fan back there as you can here it make noise as the fan is spinning. As the freezer warms up the ice inside the two vents and on the back wall starts to melt. Once the fan interference is cleared and the vents are cleared of the ice the freezer starts working again. Will work for about a month and then we start hearing the noise again. This is the ice building up inside the back wall interfering with the defrost fan. Cycle starts again. We have to watch what we put in the freezer section as we never no when it is going to warm up. Not what one wants from a refrigerator. Should be worry free. I believe this unit is made by LG for Sears.

major part broke after 6 months

Beautiful, roomy refrigerator but the major functional cooling panel broke after 6 months and no online person or person on the phone could tell what the error code meant. When we could finally coordinate with a repair person, he found that the panel was backordered and we were without a refrigerator for more than a month. Bought all our kitchen appliances for kitchen remodel from Sears. Will NEVER buy from them again. They look great, but you better hope they never malfunction.

Kenmore Fridge

Love all the space in this fridge, it is beautiful. Only thing wrong is the freezer is already needing to be defrosting as ice is already forming, and it has only been 2 months! No comment on the ice maker yet as it has not been hooked up yet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT

This Refrigerator is a big disappointment. Do not waste your money on this model. I was so happy with the looks and room inside.But from day one the ice maker shoots ice everywhere. Any time you use it you have to clean the floor up and the drips on the bottom half of fridge. We called and had a repair guy come to check the temp of the water along with the ice maker. His response was to use a pitcher instead of a glass. Not what you want to hear, he said that no adjustments can be made. Even using a pitcher ice hits the floor. I would not recommend this product to anyone. Why pay extra for an ice maker if you can use it?

Love all the well laid out space inside.

Well laid out so can SEE everything, nice little shallow cubbies for very small things, adjustable shelves, good lighting, incredible fresh food crispers, really notice longer lasting veggies and crisper apples. Best thing is opening the doors and not seeing a crowded, jumbled mess. I thought I was ordering 'door in door' model and was at first dissapointed, but love this one after a month. Did not rate as excellent because although the water dispenser delivers excellent water it comes out at a trickle and cannot be programmed, one must stand there and wait, but it's worth it.

Great Looking and Great Performance

For a recent kitchen remodel (fall 2013) I selected this Kenmore Elite Refrigerator, as well as their Induction Range and Ultra clean Dishwasher. I love this frig! It's roomy, has many adjustable shelves, is quiet, and the ice maker works well. The between door seal is very good and works no matter which door has been opened first. At first I thought I'd never need so much room, but I've fed big crowds in the past few months and I have really appreciated the extra space. And the 3 major appliance match and are quite attractive.

Great fridge its huge inside and out

I read about the trouble some are having with the ice maker. The owners manual covers most of the issues folks are having so I'm not to worried. Very quite can even hear it running or cycling. The indicated temp on the door is spot on. I really like the lighting inside of both compartments, very bright nothing is going to get lost anymore.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Some issues...

This fridge is great on size and layout versatility. Its got alot of cool environmental features to help reduce the energy bills. That withstanding, the general cooling system over cools and causes a persistent (although remediable) er1f errror that leaves the ice maker leaking water all over the floor. To prevent this from arising the freezer temperature needs to be raised to 2 degrees. Otherwise youll have to go into the freezer and clean out the ice thats frosted over the fans every 4 months or so. Advise everyone to buy the service plan or to invest in a less high tech device. Like an expensive car, itll have cool features but be very expensive to repair.

AMAZING

I did a ton of research before buying this. I looked at every fridge in this class and above. By far this is the best fridge out there. It is huge and has a ton of door space which is lacking in other models. I have yet to fill it up even with all the trimmings for a dinner for 14 people plus our weekly groceries. The best purchase I made and the Sears rep was outstanding in helping create a suite purchase and saving big when he told me to wait for the sale.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Annoying rattling noise

I've had this refrigerator for a year and it's a piece of junk. It's so noisy that I've had friends over for dinner with music in the background still ask me "what's that noise" to which I answered... In my thousands of dollars Sears Kenmore Elite refrigerator! Walk away from this one and try a competitor you will regret spending your hard earned money on something that rattles all day long!

Poor design fan freezes

Unless you like Sears maintenance van parked in front of your home don't purchase this model. We bought this larger unit because of the larger size and looks and it has been nothing but problems. Freezer doesn't keep cold, ice maker clumps together because of freezing problems. Also makes annoying noises because ice forms on fan. not happy at all!

Love this 33cu ft. Elite French Door Refrigerator

Our concern was the lots of food storage this is why we went for this one, a very nice upgrade with the ice storage bin on the bottom for extra is great. We have lots of larger parties, and have no issues of running out of space. We also love that the freezer came with a flip out shelf located on the freezer door. We have had one problem the defrost witch was fixed in a few days, this was cover by the extended warranty we got to have a peace of mind. We are very glade we decided on buying this model.

I love this fridge. The only thing I've seen as a problem is that I don't use the ice dispenser enough and the ice seems to melt together too quickly so I have to pull the tray and empty or break it up. I need to check the book to see if there is a different setting I should use.

Great refrigerator

We went to look are refrigerators to evaluate looks and features to aid further research and ended up buying that evening. Everything that was in the old refrigerator is in this one and we have room to see what we have. The temp holds right where it is set for both compartments. The controls are easy to use door alarm tells keeps us from standing with the door open. I expect this refrigerator will last as long as our garage fridge and our freezer have.

kenmore elite 33 cu. ft.

first of all, this fridge is big, it sticks out a few inches more than our old fridge. This is not a problem for us,but, might be a consideration for others, so make sure you measure first. I really like the inside air filter, it keeps most odors away.I also like the two convenience bins, though small, they're very convenient and get loads of use. This fridge has tons of room inside and we're finally able to refrigerate everything we need to. The freezer is well laid out with a deep,divided main section and two pull out drawers, one being a pizza drawer. If you need a large fridge, I recommend you go down to Sears and give this fridge a look. we're very happy with it, and it's a Kenmore.... what more could you ask for. , t

I would recommend this product to a friend.
