Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

You don't really buy these units, you rent them.

2 time owner 10/4/2017

This is NOT a sweepstakes entry - I actually spent money buying 2 of them and lived with them - one after another and had the same exact problem. Both units had a complete failure of the sealed system. 2 for 2. How lucky am I. Instead of repairing the first unit Kitchen Aid offered me a discount on a new unit. They felt a repair of this magnitude was extreme, and I felt the offer price for a new unit was reasonable, as I had the prior unit a few years and it was outside of the full warranty period. The second unit had another complete failure of the sealed system after about 2 years, still under full warranty, but this time they wanted to replace all the parts by a local service provider. Quality isn't what it was in the past. At this price point one would expect a reliable product. I see no value in paying more and getting less, just to have a brand name.

No, I do not recommend this product

Nice machine but something's missing

Rbenne17 8/1/2017

This new ice machine replaced my KitchenAid I've had for 9 years. The old one didn't have a water filter. This one has an "Ice2" filter that twists into the front control panel. Logically, you'd think if a filter is required for the machine to work properly, KitchenAid would have installed it at the factory during assembly. Think again. For the price we paid, KitchenAid should have sold a complete product that worked straight out of the box. That was not the case. I was not happy getting a new machine and then discovering all the parts to make it function properly are not included. You have been warned.

Disappointed

Razz 7/27/2017

Purchased a new Kitchen Aid under the counter icemaker model KUID308ESS in Jan. of 2016, now in July of 2017 it has stopped working. After spending several frustrating minutes on the phone with a Whirlpool / Kitchen Aid customer service representative trying to convince her that I had warranty coverage for 3 years verses the 1 year she was telling me (thank goodness I still had the paperwork on the machine), they arranged for a repairman. The repairman came a few days later and is telling me the condenser coil had a leak and needed to be replaced. I'm pretty much a hands-on guy with mechanical knowledge and this type of leak don't just occur in a year's time span. My guess, it's a known factory defect or design problem. Nonetheless, I'm out an icemaker for several weeks during the peak of the summer when ice is needed for drinks, adult beverages, etc. I'm not happy about this and wouldn't recommend this purchase to anyone, especially the way I was treated on the phone with their customer service.

So far so good

Dirk 7/18/2017

Original: KUIC18NNZS Replacement: KUID308ESS This unit replaces a defective kitchenaid ice maker. The first one would zap the pump, thermistor, etc every couple months. I believe it was just a circuit board problem, AC regulator. Fixed 3 times under warranty in 3 months. Luckily still under 3 year warranty and Kitchenaid replaced it with this one that so far has worked awesome. The ice is incredible. I hooked it up to my RO system so it is perfectly clear, and cubed ice. Kitchenaid would tell me it's a 1 year warranty. Be sure to keep warranty/instructions book and let them know. Maybe good idea for extended warranty. New model has slick stainless handle. Fast, quiet ice making. Love the ice, hope it works for the long haul.

Why did you do away with the panel ready version??

Linda 2/27/2017

Very, very disappointed that the 18" icemaker is not available panel ready. We had a beautiful panel on our icemachine that I wanted to re-use but could not and the stainless is really ugly in comparison. The handle is way too big and protrudes too far out - looks like a paper towel holder in the middle of the kitchen. I will say, however, that it makes great ice and that was the reason we did not change brands.

Psam 1/6/2017

We have had free-standing icemakers for 33 years and wouldn't be without one. We have had other makes, but I love this one the most. My only wish is that any of them could possibly be made easier to clean. We do a lot of entertaining with groups of 25 or more and we have found the icemaker an invaluable asset.

Best Icemaker Ever!

Mosind 9/18/2016

We purchased our first KitchenAid icemaker 8 years ago for a new home after studying many other brands. I have to say it has been very very reliable. This year it lost it's refrigeration capabilities so we purchased a new icemaker (same model) with new improvements such as led lighting inside the icemaker, water filter, etc. We have kept the old unit to repair and will keep it for additional use. When it came time to replace the icemaker, there was no doubt in my mind but to purchase another KitchenAid icemaker. Very pleased.

The right type of cube

Bobby N AtL 9/10/2016

After looking at several different ice makers, looking for the right type of ice, I found this KitchenAid. The cubes are thin squares, that are not super hard, not so soft they melt instantly, but just the right type. The maker works great and produces ice constantly. Melting the old ice and bringing in new. It's fairly quiet and looks very professional.

OK but previous models were better

John S 8/21/2016

This icemaker is a replacement for another Kitchenaid that finally wore out after 10 years or so. The design is not as attractive, it takes longer to make ice and it fills up much less of the bin. I still have two others of the older models in other residences both of which I prefer to the new one. While this new one is OK, if I had the choice to do over I would have paid the high price to get the older one repaired.
