We bought an LG when we did our home reno a few years ago. No complaints at all. Quiet, easy to clean, well laid out.

I would avoid LG and Samsung. Both are plagued with issues and if you need parts, be prepared to wait up to month for parts to come from Korea.

My mother-in-law's fridge went out back in September.

Repairman told her to fix it would be $600, just buy a new fridge, and recommend a Kenmore.

She goes to Sears and orders the one he recommended.

It still isn't here, my wife has been calling for her and getting the run around from some call center in India. They keep pushing back the delivery date.

She already paid, and refuses to cancel, because that's what the repairman said to get.

I wouldn't have bought anything from Sears to begin with.

Not sure about Samsung but my LG refrigerator (overseas) door gasket is bad and the door won't shut w/o "pushing it in" think the "door swelled". Age, 5 to 6 years old. Started malfunctioning about a year ago. Will buy a new refrigerator next year. Fix the door gasket and closure problem and sell it.

Honestly can't recall what I've got in the U.S. G.E. or Whirlpool? No problem.

We have a Whirlpool Gold top freezer model that we bought new (scratched and dent sale, it had a couple small scratches on the sides!) about 14 years ago.

It's been a fantastic appliance for us but I thought we were gonna have to junk it and buy a new one earlier this year. The defrost cycle wasn't working. The freezer was icing up all over the coils and causing the fridge portion to warm up (no cold air circulating through the fridge).

Several YouTube videos and a trip to Appliance Parts Depot later, I pulled the old defrost heater and thermostat out, put the new ones in and buttoned it back up. The fridge is running like new again. Easy-peasy!

Don't know if this model is still being made, but Whirlpool is what I would look at... hope this helps!

whatever you get, get as much warranty as they'll sell you. Ask them, point-blank if the warranty is any good. The salesperson that is.

Agreed, if you want to spend 5 figures to keep your beer cold.

We bought a Stainless GE side x side French Door with the freezer drawer a few years back for around $ 1,500 IIRC, and have been very happy with it.

Edit: I looked up what it is called, apparently it is French Door, as the side by side is the freezer on one side and the refer on the other.

In all seriousness, I suggest counter depth, side by side with the freezer being drawers on the bottom. Much more convenient.
If you're redoing the kitchen, I suggest under counter refrigerator drawers in addition to a counter depth refrigerator. Super convenient!

My sub zero is a built in counter depth with one large door and with 2 freezer drawers below.
On the other side of the kitchen we have a sub zero built in 2 drawer refrigerator unit. We use the drawers for beer, water, soft drinks, etc.

I have had good luck with Kenmore. Don't know how much longer you can get them though.

We bought a Whirlpool 24.7 cubic foot from Lowes, back at the first of the year. Lowes Item #714644

So far it's been a champ, I'll get back to you in 20 years.

Better to measure your spot, this beast didn't fit our old school kitchen. But booger man McGyver got out the tool bag, it fits now, barely.

The new ones are energy star double insulated = way bigger.

Kenmore had been made by Whirlpool for the past 100 years. Sears has gone a different direction with their appliance supplier as of this fall. Think lowest bidder here.

Our KitchenAid fridge is 11 years old, if it croaked, I'd get another, but it has some more life in it, still looks ok, works well. It may eat ketchup though, can't figure why we're always about empty!

Had a Whirlpool Gold double door for nearly 10 years with zero issues.

Problem with double door is neither the frig on one side nor the freezer on the other side is large enough for some items. Wife wanted a 'French Door' type with bottom freezer and double doors on top.

Purchased an Amana French door frig about 4 years ago. It's a great frig with plenty of room and really like the bottom freezer.

Had to have two service calls on it .. one some electronic part went out that controls refrigerator temperature and 2nd time had to replace a control board. All the new refrigerators have electronic controls and that has been a problem with ALL of them.

Depressing, both LG and Samsung refrigerators are rated POS. My choices are down to locally built Whirlpool and brands no one has heard of except me. Makes my choice easier.

This idea:
Brand? Whatever you prefer!
With this style, it doesn't stick out past the cabinets, isn't so deep you lose and make science projects in the back, and it's wide! The freezer drawers are very accessible.

AND even the $2000 SAMSUNG FRIDGES are know to have compressor Freon leak issues just after the 5 year warranty is out. Know of several Samsung that left the owners singing the Samsung blues.

Unless things have changed, KitchenAid makes a very good refrigerator. Ours is 11 years old and going strong, it's a counter depth side by side, but without the bells and whistles (internet, music, etc.). If and when we need to replace it, we'll get another KitchenAid, but with the freezer drawer and quick access see-through door.
