Great space, easy access, but ICE freezes together

Been using this now for about 2 months, love the space and easy access to all the shelves and drawers. Very quiet and nice illumination inside, even through it is not LED lighting. One somewhat major complaint is that some of the ice freezes together in the bucket and causes large blocks that I have to remove periodically. The ice dispenser typically works fine, but the large blocks sometimes keep new ice from being made. I was concerned about this from other reviews, but I wanted the extra freezer space by having the ice bucket in the door so it is something I begrudgingly will live with. I hear the ice buckets that are in the shelf space generally do not have this issue, but they have a lot less shelf space in my opinion. The water dispenser shows how many ounces of water is dispensed, which I thought was a gimmick, but I really like this for when I make my shakes that use a certain amount of water, now I do not have to use a measuring cup.

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.

I've only had my new built in a few weeks, but it looks great and works wonderfully. I'm so glad I got it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Bad Design of the ice maker
from Ripon, CA, United States
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

I purchased KSSC48QVS to replace KSSC48 two weekss ago. It looks very nice. However, I noticed problems listed below. 1. Freezer and fridge doors are not leveled. When freezer door is being closed, it makes a metallic squeaky sound. 2. Water dispenser pump makes a big noise when water fills the tray. It drips a drop of water and leaves a water at the bottom of nozzle after use.

I bought this fridge 8 years ago and after a dozen service calls it was condemned. I received a new one with the warranted replacement and now I pray this one lives longer and behaves better

It looks beautiful but the refrigerator door falls open hard when you take something out (with both hands) and leave the door. I'm afraid the hard shake will cause some problems down the road.

As beautiful as practical!
By Jay T
from Sarasota Fl
I am incredibly impressed with the quality of this refrigerator as well it's beauty. Opening the doors immediately expresses the quality of the unit and the fit and finish of the interior is unmatched by its competitors. And even more surprising is the quickness at which the ice maker generates cubes!!! A great value!
