Flaw in door design

kcapoz 8/14/2018

We were so excited when we purchased our KitchenAid appliances for our remodeled kitchen. We've been happy with our cooktop and oven but the refrigerator has a major flaw in the door design. When you close the left side the right side opens up, not completely but it breaks the seal and opens just enough to lower the temperature and ruin the food inside. It seems like it is missing a magnetic component of some sort. We've had a KitchenAid repairman come out to look at it and his response was that is just the way it is and there is no way to fix it. The kicker was that we had to pay for the service call because the refrigerator "is just this way". Very disappointed. If we hadn't paid such a steep price, I would get rid of it and buy a single door refrigerator. I would not recommend this until KitchenAid fixes this flaw.

Don' Buy this product

BDA1 7/23/2018

We bought this refrigerator 4 months ago. In less than 2 months the warning came over temp.we contacted Kitchenaide and finally had a service man come. He could not determine the cause. When it continued my wife called kitchenaide a second time and was told there was no proof it wasn't working and wanted a video. Finally relented and scheduled another visit for service. My wife showed the serviceman 4 videos. He then called Kitchenaide who had to instruct him what to do. He was told to check for a refrigerant leak.It has been established there is a leak in the freezer refrigerant, but they don't know where and don't know BDAwhich parts have to be ordered. We were told two men have to come back to pull out the refrigerator to try to locate the leak and then order parts. We have not been able to use our freezer for 2 months. My wife was told by the serviceman assigned by Kitchenaide that we would have to release the service company for any damage to our floor. We asked Kitchenaide for a new refrigerator but it refuses to do so. Do not deal with this company.

Love this fridge!

3/10/2017

Love this fridge so much. The counter depth save some so much space and because it's so shallow inside we don't lose track of what's in there so we don't waste as much food. In our old fridge everything got pushed to the back and we wouldn't find it until it had gone bad. Our produce also lasts so much longer in this fridge!

Working well so far

11/30/2016

So I previously had a Sub-Zero. I am writing this in comparison to the Sub-Zero. The main reason I bought this fridge is because it was 3k less than the Sub-zero. I can't justify paying that much for just a fridge. As far as the fridge itself, I like the look. The LED lighting is nice and bright. It seems so much smaller than my other fridge, esp the freezer. Oh well. I also did not opt for the water and ice dispenser. That would have taken out about 1/8 of the already modest fridge space. Also, I hear that increases problems by a lot. So far, I have had it for about 2 months. Working well.

Would replace it if I could

9/22/2016

So we are the first owners of a brand new home with this built-in fridge installed. The left door squeaks incessantly. There's a rotating center element that acts as a seal which is attached to the left door - it's coming off. This is a badly designed refrigerator and also shows evidence of bad workmanship. I would go out and purchase a SubZ or some other replacement if I didn't have to shell out nearly $9K for the privilege. Don't buy this thing. Go elsewhere, get a better product. We had repairmen in the house today trying to fix it - and they have to come back again with the parts. Not worth the aggravation!

Never-ending PROBLEMS

8/18/2016

I bought this product Oct. 2015. In July the main computer board broke, leaving us without a freezer for a month, during 95+ temps. The part was out of stock with no estimated time of arrival. After weeks of phone calls,headaches, and a the loss of a freezer full of food, they finally located the part and "repaired" it. The ice-maker broke that evening, and now that is out of stock. To spend this amount of money on a product and to have it break in less than a year, is maddening. To find out that none of the parts are readily available is ridiculous. The amount of time spent trying to rectify the situation is unacceptable.

Best looking fridge!

7/19/2016

Purchased this 2 months ago and it gave my new kitchen the best look as it is sleek and doesn't stick out and look bulky, which ruins the lines in the kitchen with a traditional fridge. We love it!!! And it's extremely quiet!

Good space. . .

This is for a rental, and so far, so good. I am a little disappointed in the two drawers, as they keep popping off the runners, although it is easy to put them back on.
