Comment:
I have owned this Refrigerator/Freezer combo for 3+ years now. It is very attractive and works well, however, once you need to replace the water filter and light bulbs get prepared to dish out some $$$. Each side light bulb costs $16 to replace (-I just replaced 9 of them... there are 20 in total inside of the refrigerator, 3 inside the freezer). Water filter is about $70. <br /><br />The tiny ClearView halogen bulbs are also quite difficult to insert. The outlets face the back of the refrigerator so it was quite tricky to replace them. They could have designed that part better.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
