      Our beautiful, new kitchenaid refrigerator feels good and solid. I love the door handles. They have a smooth and comfortable feel which is easier on arthritic hands than other handle styles. The temperature features inside are easy to understand and intuitive. Hands down this is the best refrigerator we have ever owned. It was on the expensive side, but the performance is spectacular.

      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 Stainless Steel 42" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

      This is the second kitchen aid 42 inch built in we have owned. the first one lasted 15 years. Unfortunately it was still working well, but the seal on the freezer door went bad and after many attempts at trying to have it replaced, we gave up. we were bummed to have to replace it when the time came that we got the same one, just updated. It is well made, quite and very nice looking.

      Very nice looking piece of equipment. It has room for everything. Climate control is awesome, no more spoiled vegetable. I wish there was a water fountain out of it, but it is OK.

      Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 42" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

      We bought this 3 years back and consistently have problem of frost forming in between the freezer and fridge side thus causing the unit to keep on working causing the freezer to be extra cold and fridge side to be warm spoiling food. I think we got a lemon but no one is willing to accept it

                Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 42" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

                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.
