FIRE HAZARD: Kitchenaid French Door Refrigerator Review (20 cu. ft. size)
by Ralph J.
(Fort Mill, SC)
We felt it was necessary to write this Kitchenaid refrigerator review because after only six years of ownership (expired warranty) it became a true FIRE HAZARD. The starter relay caught fire, smoked up the house and welded the compressor contacts to the compressor.
As you can imagine, the fridge is toast. So much for unsurpassed quality.
Sadly enough we've learned that we are not the only ones who have experienced this problem and Kitchenaid has known about this for years and has done nothing about it.
We have replaced it with a GE Profile. Kitchenaid may make some good stuff but fridges are not one of them.
We owned a Whirlpool refrigerator prior to buying the Kitchenaid. After that experience, Whirlpool was not one of our choices.
