I would Never buy another "stainless steel " refrigerator
from Hanover, N.J.
About Me Avid Cook
Comments about Amana 18.67 Cu. Ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:
We love the bottom freezer, very convenient. Lots of room on selves. Because of big air flow on top selve, it is not easy to store milk ,orange juice next to each other. You have to keep them behind each other and keep jockeying them from from to back as you need them. Very inconvenient . The very worse problem is rust and corrosion on the upper and lower door after seven months! Repairman came took a lot of pictures. He said it should not happen.. The company is sending repairman back with pads and a cleaner. Will write back with update. My new refrigerator looks not so new. Repairman said it is really not stainless still. Get white!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Freezer Bottom Fills With Ice and Leaks Water on Floor
We bought this fridge a few years ago and realized right away that it is too small for our family of four. But it's what would fit in kitchen. The real problem with this fridge is that the bottom of the freezer will periodically fill with a layer of ice, which then causes water to leak out from under the fridge onto the floor. We have to chisel the ice out of the bottom of the freezer, which stops the water from leaking....for a while....until the same thing happens again. I did some research and discovered this is a chronic problem with this model. One fix is to defrost the fridge and freezer. We did that once, but the problem kept occurring. We also had a repairman come and look at it. He installed our ice maker and did "something" (I don't recall what). But the problem still persists. For this reason, I am not a fan of this fridge.
Hopefully SECOND time around will prove to work!

First unit that was delivered ended up not cooling and we had to get into arguments about wanting a new unit. We live in Pittsvburgh and they scheduled a company from Ohio to come and "service" the unit 10 days later!!!! Go figure. WQell, turns out we did get a new unit, but the delivery took far too long from the day it reached our area and they could deliver it with more than one person! As of right now, AND having been LONG TIME Whirlpool customers can not state that things are going to end up well. We hope they will. Nobody should have to go through what we did to get a working refrigerator. Also, to get the replacement should not have taken an extra month! The ratings below are due to issues to date. Hopefully, these ratings will change with time. Design and features are limited becasue of our space constraints.

I like the bottom freezer. However, the freezer is smaller than my old top freezer and the arrangement not as good. Noise level is acceptable but could be better. My old fridge lasted for 18 years. If this one runs as long, I will give it five stars.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We didn't need an ice maker; ice is an old family recipe.
from Pittsburgh Pa.
Our fridge was on it's last legs, wasn't dead yet but it was close. We had time to trek from store to store and walk rows of refrigerators. We now had ideas but no fridge. After the trips to the stores, the internet searches began. We had size constraints. So, we narrowed our choices to 3 brands, and decided the Amana was the way to go. The model was located at a local store, and we bought it on the spot. One thing I hadn't taken into consideration was how little electricity it uses. We won't be getting those holiday cards from the electric company any more. We like the ways the shelves can be adjusted to make the most efficient use of space, and how well lit the interior is. With the fridge on top and the freezer drawers on the bottom, everything is much easier to put away and find. There is even lighting for the freezer drawers. The door to the fridge holds quite a bit: the bottom shelf holds three half-gallons of milk & two half-gallons of juice. The other shelves on the door are adjustable for the most often used items. We like the way the door closes with a thunk, and the way the freezer drawer seems to pull itself closed when it's an inch or so away from closing. The fit and finish are good, and the refrigerator is quiet. Compared to our last refrigerator, this thing should pay for itself due to the savings in electricity used to run it. To sum it up we are very happy with our decision to buy this Amana refrigerator.

Our new Amana Bottom Freezer
from Worcester, MA
Best fridge ever! We had our old Amana side by side for FORTY YEARS, but when our popsicles were melting we knew it was time! We love the bottom freezer and the huge interior of our new fridge! We know we'll never make it another 40 years, but we sure hope our refrigerator does! btw We added an ice maker - it's quiet and runs well as does our fridge!!
Never cooled right; had to be replaced

If you buy and Amana refrigerator, cross your fingers and pray that you will never need to talk to Amana customer service, because it is the worst customer experience you can expect to have. We bought a new fridge, but the freezer didn't work properly and was always too warm. Amana forced us through 6 different repair attempts over 6 weeks. The repair attempts did not work, the temperature just got higher. We wasted tons of food. Amana finally accepted that this unit is faulty and has promised another one, since it is under warranty, but they are super slow. We have to wait 2 more weeks. We're living out of a mini-fridge and their constant refrain is that "they are sorry, but nothing can be done." I do not recommend Amana Whirlpool.
It replaces one that was still running.
from Park Ridge, N.J.
I am pretty happy with the new refrigerator but I am still moving the contents around. My last one was with me for 25 years and was still running. Someone else is going to use it. I know Amana is a very old company and also that my new refrigerator will be fine.
