Don't buy the ice dispenser

The refrigerator did what I wanted - it was big. The money spent for the ice dispenser was completely wasted. It jams every couple of days and you have to empty the ice bin and clear the chute - a pain the butt job. It's not worth the effort to keep it running. My advice - the refrigerator is OK but the ice dispenser simply doesn't work well enough to justify any cost, much less what they charge.

One of the worst appliances I've ever owned

By 

from Dripping Springs, TX

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

We moved into a new home in March of 2008. I selected KitchenAid appliances due to the price point versus other higher-end brands. Shortly after the 2 year warranty expired we started having problems with the refrigerator. The ice dispenser door does not shut properly causing the ice in the bin to melt and water is constantly running down the front of the freezer door. Once the door decides to shut, the ice in the bin re-freezes into a solid chunk, and of course, it won't dispense any ice. The latest problem has to do with the motherboard, I'm told. Of course, it went on the blink just before Thanksgiving 2015. The worst part about this is that KitchenAid does not make or stock a replacement part. A technician must remove the existing motherboard and send it off to who knows where to have it rebuilt. I am told the process takes up to 2 weeks. What do I do without a fridge for 2 weeks? The other "fun" part of the whole experience is that the fridge has an alarm, which has been going off, beeping and whining since the board went out. I guess that's a feature... DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS JUNK. I also own a KitchenAid wine cooler, and the LEDs indicating the temperature are burned out. I also own a KitchenAid microwave, and have had multiple issues with it, and the LEDs are only half lit on it's clock as well. I also own a KitchenAid dishwasher, and the detergent dispenser stopped working almost immediately. Lastly the cooktop has been a disappointment as well. The grill over the burners cracked! How is that possible? Overall I've had a horrible experience with KitchenAid, and I'll never spend another nickel on any of their products.

Replaced a 15 year old KitchenAid that was still going strong, but ready for replacement. Quiet! I love how when you are dispensing water that it tells you how much you have taken.

Side by side Architect Series II purchase

By 

from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Like the refrigerator overall. We replaced our ten year old KitchenAid side by side. Disappointed in the slow water flow from the dispenser. Tech says sorry, that's just the way it is.We purchased a 7 year warranty and are contacted repeatedly to buy an extended warranty. Seems to little contact between departments. Your new designs are terrific and considering the cost, we might have been better off waiting to make such an expensive purchase.

Great Product!

By 

from Delray Beach, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

This was a replacement for our 18 year old KitchenAid 48" built-in Suprema that still worked. This model has more interior space in the fridge and freezer areas and deeper shelves. It's a beautiful appliance and hopefully this will last another 18 years. I'm a loyal KitchenAid customer.

Well designed interior and features

By 

from Columbus, OH, United States

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

We purchased this model about a month ago to replace a same sized 15+ year old KitchenAid and the newer model is much improved: better use of interior space and well designed features. It took a few minutes to realize the water line needs to be bled at start-up per the instructions, but once that was done, everything has worked well.

Bad Design of the ice maker

By 

from Ripon, CA, United States

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

The refrigerator part is fine, but the freezer is a disaster!! The ice holder is in the door and must thaw just a bit every time the door is opened, because within a week, the ice is a frozen into a block. The dispenser motor is not strong enough to move the ice, so it stops. The ice keeper is removable, but it freezes in place also, so you have to hit it to break up the ice holding it in place then struggle heroically to lift it off. This is a horribly frustrating design flaw that HAS to be redesigned.
I have a friend with this same fridge, and she has the same problem with the ice.

great unit

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about KitchenAid 30 Cu Ft Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

So my previous kenmore pro lasted a whopping 3 years and after 6 service calls was deemed unrepairable. So this was my ONLY option as a replacement. Was a bit unsure but it is an amazing beautiful piece. Great space, the water dispenses so quickly. So far so good.
