About - Kenmore Elite 72093

The Kenmore Elite 72093 is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the Elite 72093 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
When my wife and I received our Kenmore Elite we were very excited. Our other Kenmore only made it 5 years, but we thought we would give the company another chance. What a mistake that was. The fridge fluctuated between 42 degrees and 50 degrees right when we received it. We waited the 24 hours and we were happy to see that the temp dropped to 38 degrees, which is what it was set at. I opened the door briefly about ten minutes later and the temp was up to 50 degrees. The refrigerator was obviously not working correctly so I called Sears to come pick it up. I refused to have maintenance done on a refrigerator I have only had for 24 hours.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
After a few months, we had a technician out to replace the drawer slides for the bottom freezer. I'm now at the 4 year mark and they need replacing again. Because of the constant problem with the drawers, it ices over and we have to periodically remove everything from the freezer, scrape the ice off and use a hair dryer, clean up the water, then put everything back in. I honestly don't remember what our old refrigerator was but it was 17 yrs old and we NEVER had a problem with it. I with I could get that one back now.<br /><br />About 6 months ago, the french doors wouldn't close. I finally figured out the gasket was loose and catching so I had to get some glue and reattach the gasket.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
