Works great. Keeps food perfect! The freezer keeps everything ice cold. Love the space. Does not take up a bunch of unnecessary energy. Very economical and convenient. One of the best refrigerators I have ever had.
When I was growing up we always had Kenmore products because my Dad always bought the best for Mom. All their appliances, stove, fridge, washer, dryer were all Kenmore. Mom still only wants Kenmore. They were great because they lasted so long. I am 60 and Mom just replaced the Kenmore washer she had when I was about 25 or so.
I love Kenmore products. They are very high quality and a brand you can count on. My refrigerator works great, has the right temperatures and plenty of room. I would definitely buy another in the future.
Condensation water keeps leaking from the bottom to floor, causing water damage. After cleaning the whole fridge the leakage issue will appear again in one week. Should have a built in water pan. Horrible design!
We bought the Kenmore elite refrig. and electric cook stove. Both a piece of junk. Have had 3 yrs now and nothing but trouble... Refrig, compressor, blowers and other things have went out. The cook stove the panels kept going out, which we have gotten rid of and went back to our gas stove. The refrig. has another problem. It is showing the error F1. They will be out tomorrow to check it and it has only been about 3 months since the compressor and blowers were fixed... We are also having problem with the bottom freezer compartment. It keeps coming off its track... I recommend not spending your hard earned money on these two products... They are junk.

Leaking rusty stain drip down at water dispenser with chemistry odor. See attached photos.This issue occurred in 1 year after purchased brand new at Sears. Brand Kenmore Elite purchased on 2002 and another one 2004. Same issues.
I own a Kenmore Pro 253.5533360. I've had nothing but trouble with this refrigerator/freezer. I've replaced the ice maker twice, the water dispenser lever, three of the drawers have broken, there is a crack in the bottom (the Sears repair man put putty in it that lasted about two days), the ice dispenser lever doesn't work now, the water dispenser lever is broken AGAIN and now the temperature of the freezer keeps going up and everything is thawing out. When I unplug it and plug it back in, it works for about 24 hours and the temp starts climbing again. I have clean the condenser and vacuumed/cleaned everything I can think of, and it's still not working. Makes a clicking sound, the sound stops and it starts working again.
Of course, my extended warranty is done and I certainly don't have the money to fix it/replace it. The thing cost me 2335.56K (I submitted the receipt, but it's hard to read other than the salesperson who sold it to me) and it's junk. My other Sears Kenmore lasted almost 40 years and I am so disappointed. Not sure what to do, but need a freezer. It's my understanding that by lemon law standards, the same thing has to break three times... mine just has MULTIPLE problems, so it's not covered under that law. Maybe I need to talk to a lawyer anyway?
Purchased a Sears Kenmore refrigerator for $1300.00 and the gasket on fridge door and freezer door is faulty after 4 years. Cracked and pulled away from all 4 corners on freezer door and fridge door. I paid 300.00 for the extra warranty and it has expired 4 mos prior to my complaint. Service on the phone is 0, no call backs. Told me to purchase another warranty $. In the past I have purchased a number of LG Sears Kenmore appliances and had 100% good experience. The gasket is split-torn away and I can see the foam inner of the doors. Just install a new gasket or lose me forever as a customer.
Sears Kenmore Elite Refrigerator 79574023410. We purchased a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator in October 2014. We have had to have a Sears technician/repairman repair our refrigerator 4 separate times and it isn't even 2 years old! This last time, the refrigerator completely died on September 14th, 2016. The technician came out and looked at it on September 15th. We were told it needs a new condenser and a new compressor. Basically, the refrigerator has to be rebuilt. "IF" they can fix it, the repair is to take a minimum of three hours to repair. We were told the refrigerator could not be repaired not until September 27th. I had to throw out over $300 worth of food that spoiled when the appliance died. I was told to purchase an inexpensive refrigerator in the meantime for the garage until the repair on Sept 27th. I just received a phone call today saying that some of the parts are on back order until October 25th... "IF" they can locate the parts.
Two different supervisors at Sears said there is NOTHING they can do to help me out. Our refrigerator's warranty is now expired. They said IF they can't locate a part, the best they can do is offer us a discount on a new appliance. They will not replace my refrigerator. They may not know if a part is available or not until November even!! I am terribly dissatisfied and disgusted with Sears, their appliances, and customer service. I will NEVER purchase another Sears appliance ever again! They have absolutely no integrity whatsoever! I have never been so frustrated and wasted so much time and money with an appliance. What a horrible experience!
DO NOT BUY KENMORE ELITE REFRIGERATORS. One month after the warranty expired, the ice maker went out. After all the phone calls, finds out there was a recall. We did not receive any notice. We are halfway through the three-week period of waiting for the repair man, now the freezer stopped working. All the food in this piece of ** freezer is in the damn trash. I read a review on the ice was not keeping up with the demands. SHOULD HAVE LISTENED. As you can tell we are very disappointed in this big piece of **. If they have the balls to place this review on their website, listen to it. PS: I would recommend this junk to Obama.
It's a good performance so far really good. The size is enough for my family. The overall appearance is very good. The value perceived is very good. And I am happy for that it's very useful at home especially in storing the food like leftovers and everything and I'm satisfied for it.
I've trying to my fridge fixed since March 2016. It's now September 15th 2016 and my manufacture warranty will run out in the next 10 days. Problem: Ice doesn't work. Beeps for no reason (thinks a door is open when that is incorrect). All lights do not work (If I unplug the unit, the lights work for about 5 minutes). Issue with service: I've been contacting Whirlpool customer service to fix a Kenmore product (Sears told me to call them). They have sent the technician 6 times. Nothing has been fixed. They have changed many parts but with no change in the actual problem.
I'm worried that they're just trying to wait out the 12 month warranty and then I'm stuck with a broken fridge... I've tried calling Sears many time. Both Sears and Whirlpool are unable to solve the problem. Sears says they can't touch the product until after the manufacture warranty. That doesn't make sense to me. Please be very careful with Kenmore products made by Whirlpool. They don't care.
I have had this refrigerator for several years and I have never had a problems with it. The seals are extremely tight and the insulation is great as I never have to turn it up very high. I have a family of 6 and there is plenty of room for storage. I do have extra drawers that I put on the shelves because with 4 teenagers it makes no difference how big your fridge is, there is never enough room. Mine is the color bisque, it matches my stove and my washer and dryer. I prefer this as it does not show prints and spots as easy as as white one does. Mine has a left opening as that is the way my kitchen is designed. I bought it on sale and it was extremely well priced. I would have bought it whether it was on sale or not as it was the only one I could find that completely met all of the things I wanted.
I trust your company and will always choose this brand of refrigerator. Long lasting and nice to look at. Never buy anything else. Easy to clean as well. My refrigerator fits perfectly in the spot designed for it. It holds all of my groceries for a month without any problems. I also enjoy the crisper for my vegetables. I love the white color and it cleans very well. The next one I buy will be stainless steel bowl. My children still so does all the time and it wakes up easily. We got big bang for our buck. Never ever had a problem out of our performance. It works just like it did the first day we brought it home.
Good quality appliance. Helpful customer service. Would recommend Kenmore to anyone. We have not had any problem with our refrigerator. Energy efficient and quiet. It's a big enough refrigerator to fit all of our basic needs. We do have another refrigerator that we put extra items in but only need to use it when we have an excess of items for a party or something. It fits very well into our kitchen decor. It is nice looking and practical. Easily accessible. Easy for kids to open and get what they need. Very organized set up. It is not cheaply made and customer service is easy to get a hold of if you need anything.
Worked well with all my food being in there, a lot of room for my snacks as well for the people who eat them. I also put drinks in there. Very huge and fit everything in there like I even have room left over for more food for the next day I want to shop for food. Very big refrigerator. Long and a pretty color, it also matches my kitchen and it gets a lot of compliments. Specifically if I have a lot of food in there, people love it as well as I do. Cost almost my life but I also had money saved so it was ok that I bought that. It really helps out especially for the price they charged me at the store in the mall.
Always cold, never had a problem with and we have had it for 10 years. The fridge before was 25 years old and just recently broke down - the condenser gave out. The fridge is a decent size for a family of four but if you have a larger family you will need a fridge larger than the 20 cubic foot we have. The fridge is a plain white nothing fancy fridge. Its surface of white is easy to clean but it does show dirt very easily. Children are messy. Kenmore are a great value for your money. You spend around 500 on a new one and you can pretty much count on having it for at least 20 years.
There is plenty of room for the family. Enough room in the freezer section. It's frost free. Keeps drinks cold and frozen food frozen. Plenty of room for everything a family needs. It fits in a normal house allotted space in the cabinet layout. Room enough for gallon jugs of liquids and 24 packs of soft drinks. It's sanitary white, easy to clean. Freezer is on the top. Refrigerator on the bottom. Interior is white, Coils are located in the rear. There's a drip pan underneath to catch the defrost drainage. It is very valuable because it is well insulated to maintain temperatures during short power outages. It's well made so it will last longer without needing to be replaced.
I have this refrigerator in my utility room as an extra. It has been a great refrigerator. We haven't had any problems with it so far. We try to keep it clean and taken care of. It fits us well as far as size. We use it as extra space for stocking up on sales. It is very roomy and I have no problem stocking it up for my family. It's a great looking refrigerator. Very modern looking. I'm not ashamed for anyone to see it. It is easy to clean on the outside and inside. The perceived value is what I like about it. We thought we may not like the fact of a second refrigerator. Figured we may have problems with it being in the way. The value of it is very helpful.
Very storage efficient both in the refrigerator and freezer. The refrigerator had two bottom crispers, a middle sliding tray that held all of the sandwich fixings, had 3 spacious shelves and on inside of the door itself had pockets with bars across the front to be able to place your condiments so that you wouldn't have to put them on the shelves. Plus it had a small compartment with a flip lid to place the butter. The freezer had a single shelf but there was enough room to stack both above and below it. The refrigerator had 3 shelves, 2 large slid in and out drawers at the bottom to be able to store fruits, fresh veggies or whatever you needed to place there, 1 medium sized meat crisper in the center that also slid in and out plus the pockets on the inside of the door.
Standard black with black handles inside clean white. Fridge stacked on bottom of freezer, glass shelves that were clear so you can look through top shelf and see what was on the second shelf without having to remove anything from the front to be able to see in the back. Some of the things that I found to make the product valuable to me was the fact it was black doesn't show dirt easily, the fact that there was three pull out draws inside glass shelves to be able to see through a spot for the butter pockets both on the inside of the fridge and freezer.
Our Kenmore refrigerator has been very reliable. We have not had any major problems and it still runs like a champ. We would highly recommend this appliance. The size of our refrigerator is perfect for our home. We have a side by side model with water and ice dispenser. It fits in our kitchen very nicely. Would not change the size. The appearance is great. It matches the rest of our kitchen. We also found that the variety we had to choose from would have met our needs in all situations. We like the colors they have. The value of our Kenmore refrigerator is excellent. For the money it was a great purchase. I would highly recommend one of Kenmore's refrigerators to anyone.
This refrigerator performs well on both side. That includes the exterior dispensers. Have enjoyed this fridge and will continue with this line. Highly recommend. The refrigerators size is great. I have a family of five and we are able to fit all of our items in nicely. Could always use more space though. Very sleek looking refrigerator. Love the colors and shine. Goes very well with the other appliances in my kitchen. Would Highly recommend to anyone. We are very pleased with the value that we have received with this refrigerator. It is well worth the cost and would buy again.
Very good refrigerator to have. Kid friendly and very useful with the everyday lifestyle. Stays cold with everything in it and freezes very well. I could fit just about everything that I could in it. The room inside was great until I started loading it up with all my food and such. Cream ice was at a great temp and I enjoyed it very much. The refrigerator looks great in my house - I love it. It was a pain getting it in the house but once I did, wow it looked great. The doors have a perfect open pattern so it was a well-made refrigerator. I think the overall value of it is ok. It's not really the best you can get but hey what can you do. I would get another one if I had to but I would look for it for cheaper.
It's great very quiet and have never had a problem. Cools and freezes fast and never a outage or melt down. The best on the market that I have ever found. Really big size for all a large family needs but it is too large perhaps for a single person. It would be nice to have the same model in a small apt size. The style is nice and so are the features but the color choices could be better. Really great price for what I pay for. The upfront cost will be repaid within a few years as mine has and as long as it keeps working I will make my whole investment back.
This model provides adjustable wire shelving which is very easy to operate and very easy to clean. This unit has a lot of storage. The freezer is frost free so you need not worry about defrosting the freezer often. The side door shelves can hold larger sized beverage bottles. The size of this refrigerator is smaller than many more recent refrigerators but very effectively capable being used by smaller sized families. Its adjustable shelves create a major asset for various products you may placed upon them. Storage bins are very well designed to utilize for placing vegetables inside them.
The appearance of this refrigerator is favorable. The outer appliance color is black and finish very smooth for your cleaning it later as time passes. Very good value for the price paid. Sears sells this refrigerator with free delivery when this model is on sale.The shelves being adjustable adds far more value for items placed upon them. The value of its drawers allow for vegetables to remain fresher longer.
My Kenmore works perfectly. It is energy efficient and I love that I can control the temperatures myself. It has an awesome feature that tells the current temperature. It fits all my fridge items well and has plenty of space. The freezer is a good size but wish it had a side compartment for smaller items. I wanted white but got stainless steel. Very nice finish but no room for magnets to hang kid's art. It does get scratched easily and all marks are easily visible. I think this fridge was a great value considering it's a great brand, trusted, durable and reliable. I love that it has a good warranty on it also
Keeps food to the right temperature. We Always have ice in the ice maker and love the indoor water and ice. The adjustable shelves are a plus. I am able to store most of the food the way I like. The side by side feature is not a favorite of mine. It seems that some leftovers sometimes get pushed to the back and get lost. Like the stainless steel look in my kitchen. Need to keep wiping it down because of fingerprints. Like the look of the side by side but not the storage. Kenmore appliances are usually a good value. They tend to last a long time. Sears usually run sales so that you are able to get them at a good price.
It runs smoothly. Prepared, spacious inside but sleek exterior ice cold water. Doesn't over freeze - regulation controls easily used. Do not get how no freezer burn on any food. Ice cold meat cookable out of the freezer. Overall nice and quiet engine.
It's a good basic refrigerator. Nothing too fancy but good enough to deal with our everyday life. Not good if you have a large family or entertain a lot, as you will run out of room very fast. It's good enough for a family of 4. If you entertain a lot or have people who looove food, get a bigger fridge. Otherwise, this is good enough. It's plain so it won't stand out too much if you live in a crappy place. Can decorate it with magnets or drawings etc. Easy to clean the outside too. It was a good price I suppose. The fancier you go, the more broke you will be.
Nothing spectacular but it works. Kenmore is a reliable brand. The model I had is low frills so maybe the more expensive models might be more exceptional. It was sufficient. The model I used was just plain Jane though. It had all the basic features but nothing really cool to say about it. It was white and standard looking. It had the standard top and bottom compartments. I did like how the handle looked. There wasn't a lot of wasted space. It's a good brand for the money. Its a good family brand. No bells and whistles but you get what you pay for. I think I would go with Kenmore model if on a budget.
