    runs poorly
    by: mickey

    In over 33 yrs of marriage , we have owned a half dozen refrigerators , used either in our home or rental properties. We have never had the problems with any of them that we are experiencing with this Kenmore model. We purchased it about 6 months ago and have had numerous episodes of the refrigerator being too warm and ice crysatls building up in the vents from the freezer compartment. The first service tech suggested that we had left the refrigerator door open which caused warm air to get into the freezer and initiate the formation of ice crystals which then blocked the flow of cold air from the freezer into the lower refrigerator compartment. I thought OK. ( the first time it happened!) The doors on this model do not seem to close securely on their own - you should not have to be constantly checking the doors on a new refrigerator. You must be very careful how you place items in the freezer so that the vents are not blocked. Very poor design of this model! We are still under warranty - may ask to have this refrigerator replaced. Makes me leery of another Kenmore refrigerator.
