About - KitchenAid KSF26C6X[YY]

The KitchenAid KSF26C6X[YY] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, side by side refrigerator models like the KSF26C6X[YY] 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 refrigerators 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:
Jetson Appliances, which is local retailer, recommended this refrigerator to me as part of a kitchen remodel. Beginning with the installation by Jetson's, the door seals came off. A new freezer door had to be replaced. Now I have an led light that needs to be replaced. I tried to have the refrigerator replaced by the retailer, but they refused. Kitchenaid would not replace the lemon they manufactured and Jetson's Appliances would not assist me in replacing the poorly made refrigerator.<br />I would never again buy a product from Kitchenaid or Jetson's Appliances.

Comment:
The old adage they don't make them like they used to applies here. Thepullout storage bins are made of cheap plastic that fell apart within the first month. The icemaker is noisy, at times it does not make ice, then at times it spits the ice out on its own. We have found that ice builds up behind the ice reservoir. I will credit Kitchenaid for prompt response to our broken bins.
