    Refrigerator Recommendations?

    I am gone on business and the wife reports that the fridge just shit the bed. Apparently the freezer is cold and the fridge is warm, which means I will diagnose and may fix when I get home because the port or fan or some shit may just be faulty. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out what I should buy, or probably more importantly, where I should buy and if anyone knows who has a killer deal?

    I knew this would happen sooner than later as it is an old fridge and I was planning on remodeling the kitchen when the first major appliance blew up so I could ditch all the old stuff at once. Anyway, I'm in no mood to take that on this summer, so I dont want to buy some absolute top of the line unit. What I need at the least:

    - Stainless to look like the other stuff
    - Water and Ice Maker
    - Preferably bottom drawer freezer
    - Preferable capacity for at least 6 dead hooker limbs or 3 limbs and a torso

    Who has an in on a good deal?

    I've got one of these and I'm a fan, specifically because there's nothing on the front and has more industrial-looking handles, I'm not a fan of the swoopy handles on the Whirlpool models even though they're basically identical. Still makes ice and can dispense water from the inside, but has a clean appearance.

    We just remodeled the kitchen in the fall and while it's a full depth fridge, it's built-in in such a way that it looks counter depth at half the cost and has more storage space. If you have the space to pull that off, I'd highly recommend it - having the fridge flush with cabinets/counter is awesome.

    Anybody have experience with Samsung? I know KitchenAid is good but a little out of my price range.

    Single reviews on the interwebs isn't the kinda sampling you're looking for but I have a love/hate going on with Samsung. Bought 4 Samsung appliances as a package and everything but the fridge has been bullet proof. The fridge is French door, ice, water, freezer on the bottom. Probably exactly what you're looking for. BUT, the thing accumulates water under the crisper due to ice build up (and thaw) on the compressor. Most importantly, it's a known problem and Samsung basically told me to fuck off when marginally out of warranty. Vowed I wouldn't buy anything Samsung ever again. Fuck em.

    I've seen other reviews that are similar to yours. Maybe I should avoid. Thanks

    3 Kenmores and an LG are the top-rated on consumer reports. Seems somewhat sketchy buying things from Sears maybe.

    That would have been my choice but Mrs. Bimble wants black stainless. She just doesn't get it.

    Go down to your library and read Consumer Reports is my advice.

    make sure its not the black stainless 'stain'..not sure wtf they were thinking but the crap scratches. wife picked a non clearance non sale one...and it scratches. shit should be a class action suit. its like a coating or something, not like the other metal scuffed traditional stainless

    We had a Samsung french door w/ ice & water in the door. The ice maker gets jammed up with ice requiring removal and defrosting. its just a bad design. I got to where I could take that fucker out, defrost and reinstall with the efficiency of a NASCAR pit crew.

    Yup. Same problem with mine. It's obnoxious. Lousy design. Past fridges I've had with the METAL coil that moves the ice worked much better.

    The Samsung fridge that came with my house has been good and I like a lot about it BUT the brand is notoriously unreliable and like said above, the ice maker design is stupid. The lower one in the freezer portion is much better. No dispense but nothing to jam either. We just use that one now.

    Freezer - freezing and fridge part - warm indicates the cold air passage from the freezer to regular part is blocked (frozen), a very easy fix if you're willing to partially disassemble the interior. Or just unplug it for a few days. Google the issue with your model, you might luck out and find step by step instructions.
