      There is a design flaw where the vegetable bins get too cold and freeze. Per Kitchen Aid the fix is duct tape over the dampers. If you want to spend a LOT of money on a fridge that only functions properly with the addition of duct tape, this is it.

      One minor irritation

      By 

      from Austin, TX, United States

      Comments about Kitchenaid 42" Built-In French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

      I love the design mostly. The panels match my cabinets exactly. It really helped pull my remodeled kitchen together. I do have one minor thing to criticize, though, but it is not enough of an issue to give the overall refrigerator a low rating. The compartments at the top of each door open if you open the door too quickly making what ever is in there fall out. I really like the freezer on the bottom and the French doors make it versatile when storing odd containers for food, i.e. platters and such.

      Love Kitchenaid but not this product

      By 

      from Waldwick, NJ, USA

      Pros

      • worked well with design of kitchen

      Cons

      • not very reliable

      Best Uses

        Comments about Kitchenaid 42" Built-In French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        The fridge looks great, but the drawers are small considering its a 42 in fridge and have had it for less than 4 years and its already acting up the over temperature sensor keeps blinking although it seems to be functioning so far. For the price of this fridge it should at least be free of problems for a while. My mom has had a ge for over 10 years and had never had a problem. Clearly disappointed.

        Have some issues.

        By 

        from Southfield, MI, USA

        Pros

        • Convenient Features
        • Design
        • Easy to use
        • Performance

        Cons

        • doors shut roughly
        • liner cracking

        Best Uses

          Comments about Kitchenaid 42" Built-In French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

          Refrigerator plastic liner at the bottom of the main compartment (not the freezer) has developed multiple cracks and should be replaced. Is this a recurring issue and is this covered in the standard warranty? We have also noticed that when closing the doors (french), if the handle is released before the doors are completely shut, they close roughly with a loud bang. Beyond these two items, we are enjoying the refrigerator and its features. It is efficient and performs well.

            I liked the idea of the french doors, but sometimes, the right one closes before the left and then it doesn't close all of the way. I do like the freezer on the bottom.
