We had the previous model, a Kenmore/Whirlpool. Compressor failed while we were on vacation, so it was off to Abt upon our return. Can't beat the selection. This model is an exact match, physically, to our old model. Seems to work OK, but we really have not fully loaded the freezer yet. Maybe that's why the fridge section ran quite cold until we nudged the controller setting up a bit. The ice maker is a bit noisier even when it is not dispensing ice; not noticeable in an active kitchen but might be a bother in a quieter environment.Nice LED lighting with a clever ramp to full brightness.

This refrigerator was selected for its size, and manufacturer. I know Everyone has to choose by size, but my small kitchen really limits my choices. I have 3 other Whirlpool appliances that I'm very pleased with, and I replaced a working refrigerator to match the new range and dishwasher. I've already had a tech to my home to check the water temperature as it is tepid. He explained it's the correct temperature, and the design is different from the old model that gave us really cold water, and a quick fill option with the ice maker. The interior of the refrigerator is really nice, although the "change filter" indicator that has been eliminated. The freezer bins are an improvement over the wire baskets in the old model.

Shelf space bad
from Northern, ILL.
About Me Casual Cook
Wasted space on shelves, rim takes up a lot of room. smaller than it looks.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Just ok.Fits small spot.
Ice maker throws ice all over. Poor shelf layout.
from Buffalo Grove, IL
Great refrigerator for a small kitchen. It is small yet provides enough shelf storage. Ice maker was conveniently built on the door so you get extra shelf storage in the freezer. Bought it only 3 weeks ago so time will show how durable it is.
Fast delivery and painless installation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Only minor complaint is that sometimes the ice is loud when it drops into the container and it also. sometimes misses the container and ends up in the freezer. I'll call if this continues. Love the produce drawers and deli drawer. Our family is also fond of the LED lighting. The ice/water in the door takes a bit of getting used to where to place your glass and also how big of a glass to use. We all really like this fridge. Lots of places to move around shelves and bins.
Buying went pretty smoothly. Delivery was on time. Two delivery men spent over an hour setting up the fridge. They took away the old one. A few weeks later, we got the refund from Com Ed, as promised.

Freezer storage is too narrow and refrigerator door doesn't open wide enough.

SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR
from CHICAGO, IL
GOOD FOR SMALLER SPACES. FREEZER IS VERY NARROW - CAN'T FIT A FROZEN PIZZA LAYING DOWN. STAINLESS STEEL LOOKS GOOD - IT'S JUST ON THE DOORS - SIDE IS GREY WHICH DOESN'T LOOK AS NICE IF THE SIDE(S) ARE EXPOSED.
Everything we expected
By Uncle Don
Easy to organize foods in refrigerator and freezer. Very quiet operation. I love crushed ice -- the only drawback is cubes fly out on the floor if you're not careful.
Water line was a new installation. Installer did a fine job running line from sink through cabinets.
There are better ones out there.
from Naperville, IL
Ice maker and water dispenser have a severe design flaw. Water spills and ice makes a mess.
