Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

We have had our fridge for a few weeks now and I am pleased with how much room it has for a side by side. It also runs very quiet. My whole family loves the way it functions and looks.

36" side by side

Submitted by MeNHim - 11/4/2014

We were forced to buy this unit to replace the old Kitchenaide in this tiny little built-in spot. It would take a major kitchen overhaul to move everything to make room for a larger fridge. This is a teeny tiny little fridge. The ice maker in door is very noisy! I shopped for a quiet dishwasher and didnt even know to ask about ice maker noise. The shelves in freezer are difficult to use because so small. The drawers are worse. It seems they shrank from older model. Don't plan on going to Costco with this model! If you only eat premade boxed frozen meals that stack easily it probably would be ok.

Submitted by hr0005 - 10/28/2014

Our built-in fridge died. This was the right size to fit the space. The new one seems like it has more space. We love the customizable shelves. The water dispenser sprays down (that's an improvement) and we like that it displays how much water is dispensed.

Looks nice

Submitted by okcthunderfan - 9/17/2014

This refrigerator was built in to the new home we just bought. It is smaller than what we had before, which takes some getting used to. If we use up all of the ice, it takes 3 days to fill the container back up. I do like the way the drawers and shelves are set up. I also like that it tells you how many ounces of water that you are getting when you fill up your glass. It really looks nice in our kitchen.

Lots of room for a side by side

Submitted by momandnurse - 4/29/2014

I bought this back in December. I needed a refrigerator that fit a 36 in. spot, and we wanted water and ice dispenser. I was pleasantly surprised at how much room this refrigerator has. The 3 pull out bins are all stacked at the bottom, so the shelves are tall and roomy. Unfortunately, the temperature wasn't regulating itself and I have already had the damper replaced. It seems to be working well now.

Looks great, works great

Submitted by JOHS - 11/20/2013

I really like this refrigerator. It's handsome, well-made, and keeps everything nice and cold. The finishes are great. I didn't particularly want the ice and water in the door feature, but my kids love it and we use it every day. No funny smell to the water or ice, just well-formed cubes, nice cold water. My only problem with it is the shelves are a little awkward. It's not huge inside and some of the configuration of shelves and drawers actually exacerbates that. In particular, please redesign the light cover at the very top. The way it is now, it means tall things have to be angled to be removed -- can't just be pulled straight out.

We purchased this refrigerator because it fit in the spot from our previous appliance. There are few 36" side by side models available. We have had problems with the ice maker and disposer but 3 service calls later the problem has been resolved.

This product has some design deficiencies

Submitted by Frostd - 10/11/2013

After the initial disappointment when it was first installed and leaked water because of a faulty water valve, we are learning to live with it. We were without the ice and water features for more than a week just after we got it. It does run very quiet. We like that. However the water and ice maker are quite noisy as compared to our older one. When the ice falls into the container, and when the ice maker refills, it is very noisy. Other than that it is a great refrigerator. We also found that the initial cost was rather exorbitant, but it fits the opening well and hopefully it will last us another 25 years.

water and ice lines leaked immediately upon installation. Factory did not properly attach water/ice lines during manufacturing.
