Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

The fridge is just fine.

5/2/2016

The fridge is doing very well, just have to get used to the bottom freezer. Always had one on top. The black matte surface doesn't show fingerprints or anything else.

room & eggs

10/5/2015

The unit is noisy I think when the compressor is running. Refrigerator space is compromised for the bottom freezer. No egg shelve or holder.

Just the Right Fit

Kev the fisherman 9/16/2015

We purchased this refrigerator/freezer after having a refrigerator with the freezer on top. This refrigerator/freezer is much easier to use with the refrigerator on top. The freezer is not used as often and this eliminates bending over to access the items in the refrigerator.

perfect size for family of 4

gillk47 3/1/2015

I had a stainless steel fridge before and was constantly trying to keep it clean. After having it for 5 years it died on me. This color of black is easy to clean and look great with my other appliances. It keeps everything fresh and cold in fridge and freezer freezes things up fast. Best investment.

Happy with purchase

AHW21 12/31/2014

Purchased refrigerator 8 months ago. I like the look of the product and the convenience of having the refrigerator on top and the freezer on the bottom. The only improvement for me would have been a bit more space in the freezer section. The refrigerator is very quiet (I do not have the ice cube maker hooked up) and temp controls work just fine.

Bottom Door Freezer

notnic 11/8/2014

The bottom door (not drawer) freezer was the important feature of this refrigerator. I've had only bottom door freezers my whole life and I love them. The refrigerator part of this appliance is very good.

great fridge

shoegal2116 11/7/2014

We bought this a couple months ago after looking for a fridge that would replace our dying current fridge and we didn't want to spend a lot before we remodel the kitchen in a year or two. It has all the features we were looking for top fridge ,bottom freezer, dairy drawer etc. It is very quiet. We don't use the automatic ice maker. It is a little tight on space but good Value overall.
