I am thinking about getting the Kitchaid Bottom Mount fridge...

http://www.kitchenaid.ca/en/ProductD...BLA22KRSS.html

The dimensions say it is 69 7/8" in height and our design package says the standard left by the builder is 69 1/2" for height, does this mean this fridge is a no go at this point?

You would need to contact the design center to see if your cabinets order can still be adjusted.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. The fridge is actually 68 5/8" excluding the door hinge and 69 7/8" including the door hinge. Since the hinge is located at the front of the unit away from any cabinets you don't need to worry.

BTW. Have you considsered the 25 cu ft? Its actually wider as well and will close the gaps you normally have on the left and right of the fridge.

Got the replacement fridge yesterday, and it works like a charm. I still can't believe how huge this fridge is! We went for (what I thought was) a large shopping trip yesterday, and the fridge still looks empty!

Default New Products for 2007?

Anyone see any of the new products from KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Amana, etc. yet?

Typically, they are out at the beginning of September.

We are still waiting on any new french door refrigerators that may become available for the new model year.

As well, Whirlpool has some new dishwashers available on their US Site (GU3600, GU2700) but nothing yet for the Canadian home page.

Patiently waiting.

Tony

Does anyone know who sells the bottom mount freezer fridge with the freezer door that swings open instead of slide open?

I've been hearing of issues about the bottom mount freezer models that slide open on the rail re: the doors not sealing properly and the freezer frosting up.
