Kenmore was/is mostly rebadged Frigidaire. What always puzzled me was how if you looked at Consumer Reports Frgidaire would get terrible rankings but the same appliance badged as Kenmore got top rankings. Until one day I asked our Sears rep (we were building a subdivision at the time and used Sears as our supplier) and he explained that a top level Sears executive was on the BOD at CR. Anyway I never had good luck with anything from them. Yet my Whirlpool/Amana bottom freezer fridge has had only one minor issue in it's 15 year life. The icemaker. I bought another off FleaBay and it's been fine the last 4 yearsYeah I know Larry but, these were in my limited budget, if Sears had not gone belly up around here, I’d have gone Kenmore again, the last one lad worked beautifully for almost 20 years. If this lasts 5 I suppose I will have to deal with that again. I don’t care about bells and whistles like ice makers or water through the door, I’m a basic piece of equipment guy. Less geegaws and jimcracks to break just not necessary, if it keeps beer cold and ice cream firm, I’ll be just fine.
