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.

Beautiful refrigerator!

Kathyorn 7/18/2019

It's a beautiful refrigerator, and the platinum interior is elegant. Takes a while to get used to, because it's much darker than a white interior. Hard to see bottom shelf of freezer. Higher held lit; there is no light at the bottom level. Less capacity than previous built-on. Bought extra door shelves to increase capacity.

Poor quality with a high price tag

Piece of junk! 7/15/2019

We have had our KitchenAid KBFN506 refrigerator now for two year and are about to spent $1000 to try and get it functioning properly. Since we bought it, the doors have not closed properly and three tech visits while it was under warranty could remedy the issue. Now we have a tech we selected who found the broken spring connector, so maybe after spending another $1000, the door will shut properly. I hate this refrigerator. It was very expensive but doesn't work as well as the Samsung that my daughter bought for about 15% of what I paid. Avoid this refrigerator!!!

Great Product, I would change a few things though.

Doug K/A 7/11/2019

I have been waiting to replace my old bottom mount single door K/A built-in for several years as I was waiting for the 36" wide french door model to arrive. So far it has been a good product, runs very quiet with no issues. Here are a few things I would recommend for changes or improvements: 1) The left side door when allowed to close on its own slams way too hard. I realize it needs a little boost to actuate the sealing plate between the doors, but this is a lot. The items in the door shelves bounce around and sound like they are going to break sometimes due the door closing speed. Some type of slow close dampener would be nice. 2) The freezer door takes what I think is an excessive amount of opening force to overcome the seals, once it has unsealed itself the door opens the rest of the way very easily. I could see where this would be a bigger issue with the elderly or handicapped. There should be an optional foot pedal operated lever that can give some initial assist when opening the freezer. 3) There is no way to shut off the icemaker, the operating manual says to lift a lever which does not exist in this model. 4) The control panel display only shows the SET values of the refrigerator and freezer compartments. My old unit showed the ACTUALl temperatures as well as the setpoints. I had to purchase a pair of thermometers for the two compartments to have the peace of mind of knowing that they are always at the proper temperature. 5) This is just a personal preference, but I would prefer a white interior instead of the gray. 6) There is no butter tray.

UNSATISFIED CUSTOMER

KBFN506ESS 4/8/2019

I PURCHASED THIS MODEL AND I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS REFRIGERATOR FROM DAY ONE. ON NOVEMBER 18TH 2018 I CALLED A SERVICE REPAIR TECHNICIAN FOR THE FILTER AND THEY ORDERED PARTS FOR THE HINGES ON THE DOORS. THE TECHNICIAN WAS BANGING ON THE DOORS WITH A HAMMER. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND NO KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO REPAIR THIS KIND OF REFRIGERATOR. NOT TO MENTION I PAID $8500.00 FOR THIS PRODUCT. I EXPERIENCED PROBLEM AFTER PROBLEM WITH THIS REFRIGERATOR. IT SHUTS OFF UNEXPECTEDLY, NEVER FIXED THIS PROBLEM, NOW THE DOORS WON'T CLOSE AND THEY CAN NOT LOCATE THE PARTS FOR THIS REPAIR. SPOKE TO AVERY, HE ADVISED THAT IT IS THE HOMEOWNERS RESPONSIBILITY IF THE FOOD IN THE REFRIGERATOR IS SPOILED OR PERISHES. I ASKED FOR A REPLACEMENT BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN WITHOUT A REFRIGERATOR FOR MONTHS HE SAID THAT THIS IS NOT A GOOD REASON TO REPLACE REFRIGERATOR. I CALLED AGAIN TODAY WAS GETTING THE SHUFFLE AROUND SPOKE TO TERESA, AND WAS ON HOLD FOR 1 HOUR SPOKE TO AVERY WAS ON HOLD FOR 30 MINUTES AND HE HUNG UP THE PHONE JUST TO FOLLOW UP TO SEE IF PARTS WERE LOCATED STILL NOTHING I SPOKE TO MICHAEL IN THE SPECIALTY DEPARTMENT HE SAID I HAVE TO GIVE THEM 6 DAYS TO LOCATE PART, IT HAS BEEN 5 MONTHS. THEY WILL NOT LET ME SPEAK WITH SUPERVISOR. THE WORST SERVICE !!!!

Perfect fit; great use of space.

Bgun 1/4/2019

We purchased this to replace our 30 year-old Subzero which had stopped working and could not be fixed. It was the same dimensions as the old Subzero and substantially less expensive than a new Subzero. We are very happy with the look and functionality of the new KitchenAid.

Poor quality control

Ctrybob 9/19/2018

I bought this several weeks ago and the refrigerator portion was not cooling at all, even though the freezer was working. The serviceman called a tech person from the manufacturer, who said a new valve that alternated the cooling from the refrigerator to the freezer would have to be ordered. The serviceman then found that something in the controls, underneath the top, just hadn't been plugged in at the factory. It doesn't seem too much to ask to have them run each refrigerator to make sure it is working properly before they ship it.

Awful experience

Very unhappy 8/13/2018

After our 30 year old Subzero finally died and we looked at both a Subzero and Kitchenaid. We were ready to spend $4000 more for the Subzero but in the showroom we liked the shelving arrangement in the Kitchenaid. So we paid $7500 and had the refrigerator delivered and installed. What a disappointment. The left door won't stay open when at full outward swing. Worse, the right door won't close all the way (it will stay open when at full outward swing). Right now there is a one inch gap between the door and the door frame, with cool air spilling out. Tomorrow an approved Kitchenaid technician is coming and we hope he can fix both doors. If that can't be done I want a refund so I can buy a subzero. What worries me the most is that if Kitchenaid quality control allowed this fridge to leave the factory with these obvious and visible defects, what kind of quality control can I expect from the "innards" of this machine.

Cheaply made

susanZ 7/17/2018

I bought this over a month ago. Installation has had its problems and the frig is not half as good as the one I had 18 years ago. It seems very cheaply made. I am very unhappy with my purchase.

can't tell the internal temperature

surfdoctor 3/1/2018

I bought this refrigerator a month ago, and I still can not figure out how to determine the internal temperature of the refrigerator. The manual doesn't specify this information and the sales reps (Howard's) were no help at all. The kitchenaid website also was not helpful in trying to solve, and calling during the posted service hours left my call unanswered. Really??! Have to say that I am a bit disappointed.

How do you spend so much $ & no egg or butter tray

bldrann 10/18/2017

I just had my Kitchen Aid black stainless built in refrigerator excitedly delivered. It does look beautiful. But for the price, Kitchen aid should include a butter tray, egg tray and freezer racks.The paperwork should include what trays come with the refrigerator, no where in the paperwork or website does it list parts included. The pictures make it seem like all the trays included. See picture.
