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.

        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.

              I bought this a few month ago, and it works great, the interior fridge need redesigning of the shelving and the lens that covers the light keeps falling out.

                    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.

                          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.

                                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.

                                      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.
