Comment:
I've had this refrigerator about 8 years. I love it. However, I just sold my home that included it. I want to buy a new one just like it for my new home, but I'm concerned that the newer ones are not made as well, based on some of the consumer reviews. Up in the air about purchasing it again.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have owned my Amana fridge with bottom freezer since 1999, when I gutted my kitchen. Mine is a slide in and the ONLY SERVICE I have ever had is the kick bar on the bottom... It falls off. However, as far a the refrigerator and/or freezer, never one service call. I will get another Amana with bottom mount freezer when I change out all my appliances Spring 2014. <br /><br />Bottom freezer is far more practical, since you're usually bending to find things in the fridge many times daily. Bottom freezer, I go into once - to remove meat or fish, and frozen vegetables.<br /><br />Consumer Reports was the family Bible when I was growing up and I have had an online subscription for many years.

Comment:
Bought this refrigerator in March 2011. In June 2013 notice water on the floor & kept noticing it. Called store appliance service dept and they said this is a common problem that occurs with Whirlpool(parent company of Amana) & Amana refrigerators after 1 year warranty is up. Had 3 calls on this very issue the day I called. Advised me to call company customer service to see if they would help with maintenance costs, since this is such a common problem. Company said only if I had extended warranty. Prior Amana refrigerator lasted 21 years without a problem. Will definitely not recommend Amana & Whirlpool refrigerators today.
