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.

Keeping Food longer!!

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I am totally impressed with our new KitchenAid. It has so much more room than the old side by side that we had. This refrigerator has been keeping our food from spoiling twice as long as our old refrigerator. BWB

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Although the refrigerator is doing its job in keeping our food cold, we have had an issue with the door seals. Neither has a tight seal, and has been that way since the unit was installed. I am hoping that the problem gets resolved soon.

A week of headaches.

By

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

after waiting 3 weeks for the delivery of this unit it arrived with a damaged plug. I don't want to go into the details but 5 service calls later and one week it is now working. Not something you would expect with an item of this cost.
The plate on top was also damaged as one the second one. They mailed me a new one and expect me to put it in myself. I watched the repair man do it. Will settle with a bowed plate.

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

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

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.

Good value in built-in Fridge

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

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
