I liked the quality of my old refrigerator much better. The material was much stronger than the new one. The new one is disappointing in it's design and quality of construction. When I close the lower door on the new one, sometimes the rack falls off and all the bottles/food come flying to the floor. I was sent new racks, but that is not the problem. The hooks that hold the racks on are poor design. They do not stick out far enough to hold the rack in place. I have to be very careful when closing the door, or the racks will fall off and all the food will fall out and break. The plastic bins are not as sturdy and strong as my old refrigerator was. The plastic is thinner and more flimsy. The freezer rack that makes the second shelf is not sturdy either. It bends very easily with very little weight on it. My old refrigerator did not bend under any weight.
It also makes a lot of noise when it is runner, with strange sounds. In the summer, it got a build up of ice along the back wall of the freezer. The repair man said there was nothing he could do about it, because it was just the way those new ones are for that model.
It runs okay and keeps the food cold, but I don't like the thinner plastic, racls falling off on the door, etc. The repair man said I'd just have to live with it.
