Description
Architect Series II refrigerators provide versatile storage options for the way you entertain. With built-in or freestanding, side-by-side or bottom-freezer, and counter-depth or standard-depth offerings, the options are endless. Built-in options include the world's first built-in French door refrigerator featuring the widest refrigeration capacity of any built-in bottom-freezer refrigerator on the market. If you're looking for additional storage in the kitchen or you want to accent other areas of your home, there are a variety of undercounter options available including beverage centers, wine cellars, ice makers, and undercounter refrigerators that can be customized to match the surrounding decor.

Architect Series II built-in refrigerators are part of a coordinated appliance suite that was inspired by those who love to cook and entertain. An integrated and flush ice and water dispenser provides a visually pleasing, integrated look in your kitchen. A choice of overlay panels or stainless steel lets you customize the style of their refrigerator to match their kitchen cabinets or design scheme. The ExtendFresh Plus Temperature Management System helps insure ingredients stay at the appropriate temperatures to maintain taste and texture.

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 Basic design issues This refrigirator has a serious design flaw and though the company has a fix for it they are not willing to admit it and cover the repair costs. The way the refrigirator door is designed, the bottom hinge is not adjustable. I don't know if other people have similar problems, but in my case, the hinge sits too deep, making the hinge side of the door too close to the surface and preventing complete closure of the door. Note, this issue is not a normal wear and tear issue, since it's been there from day one. To repair it, the door needs to be removed and shims (Kitchen Aid Part#2207470) inserted under the hinge mount. BOTTOM LINE: A $5K hi end appliance should not have these kinds of issues. But if it does, the company should take care of it. 6/15/12
