I love the quality and operation of the refrigerator. It is consistently the same temperature - it does not fluctuate and I don't have the cold spots that plagued my old refrigerator. The ice maker is a bit noisy as others have mentioned, but it does not bother me. My trick is to shut it off when it is full and then only restart when it is starting to run low. I love having the various shelves in the freezer so I don't need to constantly move items out of the way. The downside of the cabinet depth style is there is barely enough storage in the freezer for me and this is a one person household. However that is one of the pitfalls of cabinet depth and I knew that before purchasing and I love the look of the French door style.

Bought this in 2015 for our kitchen remodel and wanted the counter depth design. Fridge has nice lines, is quiet, and has adequate storage space. Having the water dispenser inside the fridge along the wall instead of in the door not only makes it look cleaner, but gives you more room inside as the ice and water dispenser don't cannibalize door storage space.
Problem with water dripping started almost immediately but for some reason we figured it would go away with use. We have resorted to putting a washcloth or paper towel wedged under the crisper to catch drips that come one every few minutes throughout the day. Water was leaking into freezer and onto new hardwoods so we called Kitchenaid service to get it fixed under warranty.
3 service calls later, the dispenser still drips and now my ice maker overflows water. Problems are getting worse. 3rd service call was a different company and they punted to Kitchenaid saying they can do nothing for me and that some of these just leak. Kitchenaid is now sending the previous service company out to see if they can fix it. I have little to no faith that doing the same thing over and over is going to get a different result.
Unfortunately, Kitchenaid service has been clear about what they CANNOT do for me. I am still waiting to see what they CAN do. Although a small dispenser drip is not the end of the world, it's not something I would expect (or accept) in a brand new appliance made in the USofA.

Great product, poor door design

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

I love this fridge, but the door is a problem. My sister has the same model and has never had issues, but she is single and I don't think it gets the usage we give it. We have had to have the "flap" replaced (under warranty) but it still doesn't work right and I don't think it ever will.

KitchenAid Refrigerator has been a Huge Disappointment

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

We bought our refrigerator in 2009 when we redid our kitchen. It has been a string of problems. The hose to the ice maker sprung a leak and damaged our lower level finished bathroom...thousands in repairs, plus the cost to have the hose repaired. Rubber seal on doors started to deteriorate almost immediately. Had to have a door replaced. Bottom grill is broken. Deli bin door no longer closes. Freezer temp is not fluctuating between 0 and 3 degrees...randomly. Also, you must have a water filter, which is costs about $50 every other month to replace. I am going shopping this week for a new refrigerator....and it will not be a KitchenAid product.

Looks good, fits space well, Noisy and High $$$ repairs

By 

from Wichita, KS

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

We purchased an entire Kitchenaid appliance package when we built our home 7 years ago. I needed a cabinet depth refrigerator and this seemed to fit the space best. The refrigerator has ALWAYS been loud and noisy to the point when guests were in the home many asked what those noises were. I called out the dealer we purchased the refrigerator from, he said he could not find anything wrong. I also had an independent appliance repairman listen to it and look at, he too said nothing was wrong. Recently, we were away for a week to come home to our refrigerator setting in a pool of red juices from the thawed foods in the freezer as the compressor went out in a 7 year old refrigerator. I see other reviews mention short lived compressors and expensive repair bills on this model also. We spent the $650 to replace the compressor. The refrigerator does run much more quiet now. Although, I'm happier to have a much quieter kitchen I hope this compressor lasts much longer than the noisy one. Wondering if I purchased a lemon?

Poor Quality

By 

from Toronto, Ontario

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

Small freezer holds very little. Fridge has cold spots that actually freezes food and destroys fruits and vegetables. Double doors don't close properly frequently leaving one of the doors partially open.
Kitchenaid recommended Toronto Appliance Service who came 5 times and couldn't resolve the freezing food issues.
This was all in less than a year. Get another fridge, this is a terrible choice.

My side by side frig was a lemon from the get go! I don't know why I waited so long to replace it! Love all the features in this refrigerator, inside water dispenser, room for long trays or casseroles, organized freezer section, finish and sleekness of the front exterior. Quiet too!
