We purchased this unit to replace an earlier model that was 12 years old and had broken down and could not be repaired. We chose this model because it matched our other appliances and fit in a custom designed space. The new model is light years ahead of the previous model. The design and craftsmanship of the interior space, the compartments, the ice maker and the freezer with its rubber mat to catch water and ice are far superior. We were almost obligated yet hesitant to purchase this model but are extremely pleased with the end result. It also runs very quietly.

We have had several service calls on our new fridge. Still waiting on a new control board. The first call was to try and correct the door open switch. The light will not turn on until the door is open 45 degrees, which is also the switch that senses the Door Open Alarm, which doesn't work anyway, hence the new control board. The service guy told me there is nothing they will do to fix the door light switch.
Also, they dented the front of the fridge installing it. No problem, we'll get a new door right out. The first replacement door arrives damaged several weeks later, without the actual stainless overlay, which is the cosmetic cover to the door that was dented in the first place. No problem, we'll get you a new overlay. New overlay arrives, damaged.
Second service call is due the fridge now working at all. Serviceman says most likely cause by freezer door being left ajar (remember the door alarm?) and condenser freezing up. Leaving it off overnight thawed it out, and it's working again.
But now I have a $6000 refrigerator I don't trust.

        Only 36" but space is designed well. Quality drawers that roll easily, and steady shelves. Simple, clean appearance.

              We've had this refrigerator for 1/2 year now, and have been extremely satisfied by its look, the amount of food it holds, and most of all, how quiet it is when recharging.

                    As with most built-in fridges, this one isn't very big. That's too its advantage. Shelves are easily moved and accessed. Lighting is very, very good. Keeps constant temperatures. Vegetable drawer does a better job than most of keeping vegetable fresher longer. Downside is the freezer. All bottom freezers suffer in accessibility. This one is no different

                                                        This is our second KitchenAid refrigerator. We debated going to SubZero and decided wisely to stay with KitchenAid. The efficient and effective design and style is top shelf. They have improved the interior and kept the stuff that works. We purchased the product from PC Richards and couldn't be happier with the entire process. I strongly recommend KitchenAid refrigerators. Love the simplicity and quality.

                                                              This built in fridge has plenty of room, quiet motor and reliable cooling. I have had refridgerators with the water/ice in the door, but I had found them to be a bit messy. This refridgerator has the ice maker in the lower freezer drawer, which works well for my family. It is attractive and easy to clean. I do recommend this product.
