We have stopped selling any brand with a disproportionate amount of service.  It is important to note: Some brands are over 50% service within the first year. However, with the best brands still requiring service at within the first year, you should know who will be fixing your refrigerator.

Many of the problems stem from an ice dispenser leaking as it is now located in the warmer refrigerator instead of a freezer like a side-by-side.

At a 26.36% service rate within the first year, you will likely need service within 5 years. 

What Are the Most Reliable Brands?

In terms of reliability, Samsung is the most reliable followed by LG.

However, be aware their support has been outstripped by their tremendous growth in some areas.  

You have to inquire who will be fixing your new refrigerator before you buy it.

Let's also look at the distinctions between all the counter depth refrigerators as there is a bit of confusion.

Standard Depth vs. Counter Depth  

Regular counter depths are shallower refrigerators. The doors will be the only depth sticking out past the cabinet or countertop.

Have a look at the installations below. On the right is a standard depth refrigerator, where you can see the exposed refrigerator cabinet sides.

What's the Difference Between Counter Depth, Integrated, and Professional Refrigerators?

While they are all called counter depth, there are significant differences between the three styles. This article will focus regular counter depth refrigerators. See below for links to the other styles.

Counter Depth

Regular counter depths are shallower refrigerators. Typically only the doors will protrude from the cabinets. They are the least expensive by far. 

Integrated Refrigerators

Integrated refrigerators fit totally inside the standard cabinet, so they are seamless and indistinguishable from the cabinet itself. The doors do protrude on the pro and regular counter depth refrigerators.

Integrated refrigerators, like professional refrigerators, will cost a lot more as well.

Professional Refrigerators

Professional refrigerators are taller at 84 inches and have the compressors on the top with a "restaurant" or commercial look for a much higher price of $8,000-16,000.

How to Buy a Counter Depth Refrigerator

Counter depth refrigerators are much less expensive than when first introduced. The Korean companies have used their highly successful promotion strategy of rebating around holidays. The rest of the companies have since followed suit.

Rebates are especially good around holidays like President's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Black Friday, and July 4th.

You can buy a counter depth refrigerator between 25-40% cheaper around one of these holidays.

Look especially at Samsung and LG during these times because they have the bigger rebates during promotional times.
