About - Kenmore 7200[2]

The Kenmore 7200[2] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the 7200[2] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
I have had the unit for just over one year and now water is leaking on the floor. Sears replaced my previous unit which became unreparable after 1 year and 1 month. The next refrigerator I have to buy will definitely NOT be a Kenmore!

Comment:
Replaced frig that was 20+ years old that was still working.. for the top freezer ease. Putting food to close to the back wall caused the frig to go into defrost mode and made the food warm. And water drains out on the floor cause the drain gets clogged easily. This is after 1 year!!!! HORRIBLE Reliability!!!
