Kenmore Refrigerator or Frigidaire Refrigerator: Comparison Notes To Help You Choose
It is not commonly known by the general public, but Sear’s Kenmore refrigerators are made by many manufacturers and are marketed under the “Kenmore” name. Interestingly, many Kenmore refrigerators are manufactured by Frigidaire. Whirlpool, GE and LG also commonly make refrigerators that are marketed as Kenmore products.
All Kenmore refrigerators have a model number. The model number’s prefix lets you know who manufactured the unit. Look for the model number on the right of the appliance’s identification tag. A prefix number of “790” or “791” or “970” indicates that the appliance was manufactured by Frigidaire.
When deciding which refrigerator to buy, you should overlook the name of Kenmore versus Frigidaire because they might actually be the same product being marketed under a different name. Instead of focusing on the brand name, you should instead consider what you like and want in a refrigerator. Do you want a side-by-side, bottom freezer or top freezer model? Is an ice maker or water dispenser important to you? What dimensions do you require in a refrigerator? Does the refrigerator’s finish matter when placed in your kitchen’s color scheme? Usually, a stainless steel refrigerator has a higher price tag than a white or black finish.
Sears is well known for offering great customer service; however, the Kenmore refrigerator models tend to be priced higher than Frigidaire.
