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.

I decided to replace my 9 yr. old Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator in February vs. replacing a bad compressor. Now I wish I would have taken my chances w/ the $800 repair instead of buying the Kitchen-Aid side-by-side Architect Series II refrigerator. I am astonished at how refrigerator design & performance has gone backwards over the past 9 yrs. My Whirlpool had excellent features, ran quietly & served me well until the compressor died. The new Kitchen-Aid makes more sounds & loud noises than a high school band. It really is disturbing. The icemaker is obnoxious both in how loudly it operates & its poor performance in actually making ice - once emptied it takes 48 hrs. to refill itself. The compartments & door bins are a step backwards from the Whirlpool Gold as well. For instance, you cannot store a milk jug size container except in the upper door bins which makes no sense if you have children. Also, the interior shelves on my Whirlpool could be adjusted in 1 inch increments wheras the Kitchen-Aid only has a few possiblitiies for shelf arrangement. The icemaker dispenser makes a mess everywhere especially when using the crushed ice feature. Overall, I would rate the Kitchen-Aid as a piece of junk not worth the money, but I'm not sure what's on the market that's any better.

Great Fridge - Flimsy Drawers

By 

from Greenville, SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

The fridge and its features are perfect for our needs. Unfortunately after 2 years of owning it 3 of the five drawers have completely fallen apart. Since this happened outside of the warranty window, customer support would not replace them. The drawers are quite flimsy and after normal everyday use by my family of three the front of these three drawers just pulled right off. There is no way to re-attach them because the assembly is held together by very small plastic tabs that basically disintegrated. The drawers are about $80 a piece so we have had to make do with large unusable gaps in the fridge while we wait for the pricey replacements. Aside from the flimsy drawers though the unit is quite nice and meets all of our needs. However I can't recommend it to anyone knowing that they might have to shell out $250 dollars 2 years down the road.

Not reliable

By 

from Danville Indiana

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Purchased in July 2012. In July 2016 sealed system on the freezer side completely went out. In January 2017 comma sealed system on freezer and refrigerator side has now gone out. I thought I was buying top-of-the-line apparently not. KitchenAid is sending somebody out they only have one vendor in the Indianapolis and surrounding Marion County areas. We have to wait 10 days for someone to come look at our refrigerator, and then they will likely not have the parts to fix it when they come so they'll be an additional wait. Also the rims on my refrigerator door bins are peeling and look disgusting. I keep a clean refrigerator and they tell me this is merely cosmetic. I'm a realtor and I plan to tell all my clients and colleagues my experience with KitchenAid.

Kitchen Aid standard depth side-by-side fridge, Architect

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Easy to organize the refrigerator compartment. Crisper works well. Only issue we have noticed is that the ice maker is somewhat noisy. We are used to the noises, but guests do notice the strange noises coming from the ice maker.

Bought this to replace a KitchenAid side by side that was 21 years old and still running perfectly! I am even happier with this new one! It has classicly modern clean lines and the stainless steel is easy to keep clean with no special effort. The inside lighting is lovely. Great storage.

Worst Refrigerator... Do Not Buy!!!

By 

from New Lenox, IL

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

To let you know I am a review monster and had I read the reviews about this refrigerator I would not have bought it. With that being said I bought all NEW Kitchenaid appliance roughly two years ago and three days ago the ice maker stopped working on my refrigerator. All I did was replace the water filter and the ice maker stopped working, I couldn't believe it but after reading the reviews I learned my fate. Several reviews explain this exact same scenario not sure why, but got on the phone with Kitchenaid representative to try and solve the problem. The Kitchenaid representative gave me two options... Pay for a technician $90 service fee plus parts, or pay $359 for a one year warranty/service. I of course got EXTREMELY UPSET and ask for a supervisor. He also reiterated what the representative said to me, which I began to read the reviews to him off KITCHENAID WEBSITE because he told me there were no recalls/call backs for this product. He told me the technician for my refrigerator do not say there are any problems, which I told him his technicians should read the reviews because they tell a whole different story. Clearly and without a doubt this refrigerator has issues which Kitchenaid will not stand by!!! The best I got out of them was the parts to fix the refrigerator but I still have to pay for the technician. Kitchenaid is by far the WORST big name manufacture and I will continue tell my story to whoever ask. I hope after reading this you do not make the decision I made.

Starting to have trouble with the ice maker

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I am a bit disappointed as I purchased the product on 11/12/2016 and already have had two service call and it is only 12/6/2016. One call was because the water filter was leaking inside the fridge and now the ice maker isn't working. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Broke in 2 years

By 

from Marlborough, MA

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

We had the fridge a bit over 2 years now, it stopped working and was not cooling anymore. First we called the extended warranty guys to come out (Warrentech) and waited 1 week, they figured it's the sealed system which is covered under Manufacturer warranty. Then we called Whirlpool service, after 1 week they came and added a dye to see if there is a leak, they could not find anything and left and then came back for a second time after one more week. Replaced compressor and a few valves. Fridge worked for a week and then stopped working. We wasted alot of time, food lost due to improper cooling and so far stuck in a limbo with KA to decide how to proceed. I agree sometimes things break or defective, but what I don't like is the protocol and red tape we have to go through to get a replacement fridge.

Poor quality Refrigerator barely made it out of warranty

By 

from auburn CA

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator 1.5 yrs ago.(safely out of warranty for KitchenAid) It completely failed and I have to replace. This is the first KitchenAid-Whirlpool refrigerator I have ever purchased. All other refrigerators I have owned lasted at least 10-11 years. Most longer. After reading other reviews, there seems to be a consistent quality issue with this product.
Lost cooling in the freezer. Ice in Ice maker melted and leaked all over hardwood floor.
