Ice Maker Is Inside
Best Uses
The fridge was in the house already when we bought it but it was in great condition as it was only a couple of years old so we kept it. We have never been able to use the ice maker as it has never actually made ice. I've therefore always used the ice compartment as extra storage in the drawer. We even had a repairman come. After changing the filter and him thoroughly looking it over we were not able to resolve or even identify the issue. The display on the door where you can get water out of also is difficult to use, and is quite temperamental. Sometimes we get water from it and sometimes we don't.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
