Loved it at first! VERY DISAPPOINTED NOW
Holds Temperature Well
Space For Tall Items
We have owned this refirgerator for 3 years, 8 months. It was our first bottom-freezer, and we loved it! So easy to access everything, great water and ice dispenser, handy pantry cabinet, flexible shelving, did a great job keeping everything cold. The icemaker was noisy, but that was okay UNTIL...<br /><br />IT DIED. At the tender age of 3-1/2 years. Three different repair techs said it can't be fixed. And the one-year warranty is all you get. Whatever you hear, there are NO MORE FIVE-YEAR SEALED-SYSTEM WARRANTIES. Whirlpool/Amana/Maytag/KitchenAid stopped doing those around 2006.<br /><br />As another reviewer has mentioned, the condenser tube sprung a leak (freon), then water got sucked into it from the defrost pan and it corroded. Whether I actually believe the corrosion part is another question; it was the extended warranty rep that told me that. Corrosion isn't covered under the Assurant-backed extended warranty, you see. At least they say they'll refund me the $299 warranty price. :P<br /><br />A good refrigerator that only lasts 3 years, is NOT A GOOD REFRIGERATOR. IT IS A HORRIBLE, AWFUL, RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE REFRIGERATOR.<br /><br />Sorry to go all-caps on you, but that part must stand out. AMANA FAILED WITH THIS PRODUCT. And I am now looking elsewhere for my next fridge. Hopefully it will last at least FOUR years.
