We replaced a 15 year old panel ready version of this model. Price had gone up from $3800 (retail) to $7400 (online), but essentially the same model. Old one had a leak in the freon tubing. We tried replaceing evaporator and heat exchanger and every other line you could get to but the leak was inside the walls so it was impossible to repair. We elected to go SS instead of panel ready and did not get the ice/water in door feature. It was $700 more and we were not sure it would be a good idea to have water spots all over the SS door, which is bound to happen.

Unit looks nice and runs quiet, just like our other one. Inside is laid out well and bright. SS panels are easy to clean and this matches our wall oven, dishwasher and microwave that we had installed a few years ago. Those are easy to clean as well. Overall we have had good luck with KA and would buy again.

We purchased a new $7000 plus refrigerator and expected it to function upon delivery and installation. It did NOT. We purchased the unit from Spencer's in Scottsdale Arizona and took delivery on Saturday, December 14, 2013 being told it would cool down in a few hours. After four hours and an INCREASING internal temperature, we called Spencer's. The sales people were very condescending and told us it would take 24 hours to cool down. After 24 hours of operation and NO DECREASE in internal temperature, we called Spencer's again and were advised there was nothing they could do until the next day. On Monday, December 16th, a repairman arrived and told us there was NO coolant in the unit. He filled it with refrigerant and it immediately began to cool down. After 4 hours the refrigerator had cooled down to the set temperature but within 2-3 hours later it started to warm up again and remained at 76 degrees. This indicated that the coolant had leaked out and the real problem was a refrigerant leak. We contacted Spencer's again and demanded a replacement unit to which they were very reluctant to agree. After several days a replacement unit was installed and the internal temperature dropped to the set level BUT periodically if would further drop to -7 to -10 degrees in the freezer. After contacting KitchenAid directly, another service call resulted in replacement of the freezer sensor which was completed on January 16, 2014. We are hopeful that this has resolved our problems. We are disappointed with quality of this product and feel we should receive an additional four (4) year warranty.

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Side-By-Side Stainless Refrigerator:

We had a 48" version of this same fridge at our previous house and liked it so well that when we remodeled the kitchen in this home we just went with it again. The 42" version was better for this floor plan

The last one I had went 15 years before it failed. If this one does the same I'll be happy. Good value for the price.

Very nice Refrigerator, some installation problems

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Side-By-Side Stainless Refrigerator:

I purchased this KitchenAid built-in refrigerator from Ferguson Showroom in Ann Arbor, MI. The showroom staff was helpful and I like the refrigerator. However, it was delivered with the front kick-plates missing. It's been 2+ weeks, and after several calls, I still don't have resolution on getting the kick plates. The model I bought does not have a water and ice dispenser, which I miss ... but that was my choice

Disappointing

By

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Side-By-Side Stainless Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator a few weeks ago, having previously owned a 42" side-by-side Kitchenaid refrigerator. The new refrigerator is more flimsy and less solidly built than the old;
--n the booklet of instructions is cheapie, cheapie (printed on cheap paper and not easy to follow; whereas the old book was substantial and well-organized)
-- the shelf organization is hopeless, with shelves so close to each other that very little fits in. If you remove a shelf, the refrigerator does not have adequate capacity.
-- the fruit and vegetable bins do not have independent humidity controls
I am very disappointed in this refrigerator and would not buy a KitchenAid again.
-- the freezer shelves are too shallow with the result that many things simply don't fit in.

Pricey, but looks good

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Side-By-Side Stainless Refrigerator:

This refrigerator was purchased to match the suite of KitchenAid appliances pre-installed in our new home. It is more expensive than I would have liked, but we did a deal with our agent to make it happen so that we would have a coordinated kitchen. (The builder created a space that could only be filled with a couple of specific units.) It has more than enough space for two people. Nothing fancy going on, which is fine for us. The trays in the refrigerator door are not as accommodating as I wish they were, considering the height of the door.

Problems with cooling

By 

from Carrollton Texas

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Side-By-Side Stainless Refrigerator:

We purchased this unit 5 years ago and started having trouble with it last year. 1 year later and about 5 service calls across 3 different "certified" repair shops and it's worse. Use to get in the 40's, now it's in the 60 degrees. The last repair shop has been out 3 times and they have not been able to figure it out. They are saying they are ready to give up.
