EW28BS85KS 36" Wave-Touch French-Door Refrigerator with 27 cu. ft. Capacity, Wave-Touch Electronic Controls, Luxury-Design Glass Shelves, Ice/Water Dispenser and Perfect Temp Drawer: Stainless Steel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 197.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our new Refrigerator My wife and I both love our new Electrolux French Door Refrigerator. We especially like how you can open both doors and see everything in the Refrigerator, and it is at eye level. It is great that all the shelves are glass to be able to look at the back of the shelves. One problem we see is that you need to open booth doors in order to open the left crisper drawer, because the right hand door has a flap that is in the way of opening the drawer. The right hand crisper drawer works as you would expect. Another problem is when you open both doors at once and close the left door first, the flap on the right door bangs into the closed left door, which we seem to do alot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Standard Depth French Door Stainless Based on 13 months of ownership I find the genreal functionality of the Electrolux refrig / freezer to exceed expectations in terms of food storage and control features offering great flexibility. Word of caution for those who have kids.....Stainless finish is very difficult to keep surface uniformly clean and clear of hand and fingerprints. One design consideration...Ice maker works fine, except it tends to overfill internal bin causing cubes to fall into bottom cavity of freezer and prevent freezer draw from properly closing and sealing which can promote defrosting or freezer burn conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything You Need in a Fridge! After our 12 year old side by side went out we started a search for a French door refrigerator. There are some beauties out there, but none compared to this one! I love the double ice maker and temperature controlled sliding tray, not to mention the beautiful glass trays. We had a few minor issues that needed to be addressed because we bought the refrigerator off the floor at Plaza Appliance, and I am beyond pleased with the quick and courteous service both the customer service provided along with the technicians. What a pleasure to be a part of the Electrolux family. Wish we had joined sooner. P.S. LOVE the soft serve ice cream drawer too!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks Nice- NO ICE I purchased this refrigerator in late 2009 and have had over 8 service calls for the ice maker. Each time a part or system board upgrade was installed/or replaced and it works for a while and then stops again. The latest service call has been open since early October where the ice maker stopped working, water was leaking into the fridge, which burned out the wiring harness. After three more attempts, the wiring harness was replaced, the fan was replaced, the water pump was replaced, the shut off arm assembly, and the motorized maker, still no ice. Now they are sending another tech to do what I do not know... Stand clear of this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new refrigerator Love my refrigerator. It is beautiful. Very roomy and easy to keep organized. Love the wide deli drawer. The interior lights are a wonderful touch. I have the Stainless steel finish and cleaning the outside is fast and easy. The only issue I have is with the ice maker. The icemaker does not shut off automatically and ice constantly overflows out of the ice basket and drops behind the freezer drawer. I have to remember to turn off the icemaker when I notice the ice basket getting full. Other than that, I love my Electrolux refrigerator and would highly recommend it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems with ice maker Basic refrigerator is fine, but ice maker cabinet quickly freezes and will not make ice. This is a significant and recurring stop to cold drinks. Disappointingly, the first occurrence was within 6 months of ownership, and at that time an entire second freezer cabinet was installed. This was not the remedy. Ongoing now and frustrating, each time we return from an extended trip, the ice maker is frozen and requires days of defrost to try and reset the system. Unless Electrolux has yet another qualified repair option, I conclude this is BAD DESIGN. There is not a problem with the auger functioning and water lines are clear. Never again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improve quality control: pre-delivery or factory The unit was delivered during December 2015. The ice line connector was not sealed properly and leaked slowly over the subsequent five months. It caused damage to a newly installed solid walnut floor; it required removing a portion. In addition, the refrigerator has been pulled out into the kitchen area while a fan and dehumidifier are in operation 24/7 to remove moisture from both the remaining walnut floor and plywood sub-floor. This has been ongoing for more than two weeks and this inconvenience will continue until the floor moisture level is reduced to an appropriate level. My wife is not happy! Perhaps a moisture sensor could be incorporated into the unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EW28BS85KS3 not worth the money or aggravation We purchased model EW28BS85KS3, French Door Refrigerator about a month ago. Nice looking machine, however, we're on a first name basis with repairman. Top ice maker that feeds door dispenser made ice but when attempting to get cubes, dispenser would spit out mostly crushed ice and then continuously drip from dispenser. Repairman found a faulty rubber seal on the flapper door that seals the ice maker from the outside air and had to replace entire dispenser assembly. Ice maker in freezer compartment overfills with cubes and when opening freezer drawer the wire lever that detects a full bin and stops the ice maker will kick out about a half dozen cubes in back of the drawer and they will subsequently slide out from under the drawer onto the floor. On a couple of occasions, the ice cubes stuck behind door and would not allow freezer drawer to close completely causing thawing. Repairman ordered, from Electrolux, an extension to the wire lever which will not allow ice to build up as high in bin. Question, why isn't this installed at the factory. A hinged strip which runs the full vertical length of the right fridge door which allows both doors to seal in the center, will cause the left door not to close correctly due to hanging extended. This strip needs springs to hold that hinged section to return to its correct position. I'm no expert but, for the price we paid, this machine is extremely disappointing and we will never purchase another Electrolux item. There are simply too many design and engineering issues that should be corrected prior to the unit leaving the factory in Mexico.
