We recently purchased this refrigerator for our busy family of 5 and could not be happier.

Great things: The LED lights are wonderful; the entire fridge is so well lit you can't lose things in the back. The interior styling is quite nice and sleek looking. I like the glass shelves in the freezer instead of wire shelving. The ice maker/storage in the door is a great feature and the pull out ice storage is very convenient. The ice cubes are smaller than the standard crescents which I like because they fit better into narrower glasses. The factory setting for temperature is perfect and the unit cooled down very quickly upon installation. The "measured fill" water dispenser option is a handy feature, which I thought was gimmicky in the store, but I find I use it multiple times every day. The water dispensed is nicely chilled, too.

Not so Great things: There is not gallon size storage in the door. We don't store milk in the door, but could be an issue for those who do. The shelf placement is limited in both the fridge and the freezer. There's one extra shelf option in the fridge and two in the freezer, although you can have the deli drawer up in the middle of the unit or flush with the crisper, so that's a nice choice. The door open alarm is so subtle, just a pleasant beep that doesn't constantly repeat: nice when you are loading groceries in and leave the door open, but you can barely hear it in the kitchen; I doubt you could hear it anywhere in the house if one of the kids left the door open accidentally. I have noticed the general working noises of the unit more than my old fridge, but it could just be because they are "different" sounding. Nothing too crazy loud.

This model has alot of space.

You cannot put the shelves where you need them, because the spacers are molded so you have to put shelving in the spots that are there for you. You'll see when you look in the fidge and move the shelves around.

Delivery was perfect, service at Abt was perfect.

I had the old model of this fridge and it was the best looking. Everything was perfect with it for 9 years until the storm blew out everything.

Kitchenaid should go back to the old model and offer the contoured doors and please go back to the Black sides. Most people have black in their homes and the Grey looks terrible, or give them a choice. Kitchenaid made alot of mistakes with this one. The over performance is okay except the ice maker is slow slow slow and we are always on the edge with being out of ice each day. Economy is not always the correct buy. I have all kitcheaid appliances and love them except this fridge is testing my thoughts with the 2012 model.

    Comments about KitchenAid 36" Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

    I like the space in the fridge. My previously refrigerator was a french door/bottom freezer and I hated it. This freezer may not be as big as a bottom one, but it is easier to organize and find things. I like that the ice maker is on the door, but the ice maker it loud. The one bad thing about the fridge is the insides of the drawers are very sharp and both my husband and I have cut our hands getting things in and out, especially in the small drawer. The drawers do not pull out very far.

      Comments about KitchenAid 36" Architect Series II Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

      KSF26C4XYY03 (Abt KSF26C4MSS) replaced an Amana refrigerator for only a few hundred dollars more than we paid at Abt 24 years ago. Responding to some bad reviews; the noise level is acceptable and gets quieter as food is added. The door shelves seem sturdier than other models we looked at. The ice maker does not spill ice if you hold the cup up to it. It makes lots of ice quickly. Has LED lighting throughout, not just at the top. The water dispenser displays the amount of water being poured. Lack of shelving options is because the layout is space efficient. No problem storing a gallon of milk in the door shelf.

          What an upgrade over our old fridge. This model has a great amount of storage and features. Love the side by side and filtered water from the door. Our main complaint is the capacity of the ice storage. On warm days or having guests, the ice runs down quick, even when using the Max Ice feature.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was great and our delivery/install guys had a few challenges to overcome in delivery. They did a great job overcoming small door frames and tight spaces. They did a great job!

              Comments about Kitchenaid White Side By Side Refrigerator:

              We bought this refrigerator because our old one was making noises and we thought it was on it's last legs, so we figured we'd rather enjoy more time with our new refrigerator than wait until the old one went.

              The first thing we discovered was that even though there was a lot more room than our old refrigerator, it was harder to arrange where the food went and it was harder to access the food.

              Shortly afterwards, though, a part broke and all of the food in our refrigerator froze and much of it was ruined. Abt sent out a repair person in a few days, but they didn't have the part so we had to wait weeks to get a refrigerator we could use.

              And to add insult to injury, Abt wanted us to pay for the replacement water filter even though it broke after freezing because of the defect. After having a TV that Abt repaired but we could never fit the entire image on the screen again and this experience where we had wait weeks for repairs and then fight over what was covered, I'd say that their service isn't what it used to be.

              Also, the doors on the bins are very cheap plastic and 2 of them have broke through normal teenage use. So now every time I open the meat or vegetable bins the front of the bin comes off.

              Needless to say, I guess I should have put up with some loud noises on an old refrigerator.
