Kitchen Aid No More
I guess this is more of a vent than anything...
Newer home - first owner - 6 years old
All KA appliance -- SS higher end models.
Double Wall oven - year 5 - self clean cycle locked up. Repair cost $500. (new blower, thermostat)
Last month - occurred again. Bottom oven still works, but top does not.
Cooktop -- Rubber feat always come off the grates. Hence, cooktop become scratched. Cooktop itself scratches easily.
Dishwasher -- Repaired door once. Not a big deal. But it stopped working last week. No water getting to unit. Might not be the dishwasher itself, but I'm not happy.
Microwave -- it's over the cooktop. Would not have it here, but we didn't design the home.
Control panel replaced 3 years ago. The unit was randomly turning itself on. Scary stuff. Handle also needed replacement due to cracking.
So -- we decided to just replace everything except the microwave. Shouldn't have to do this at the 7 year mark. Cooktop is not necessary, but we are going with Bosch and they have a 15% rebate if you purchase 3 appliances. Makes sense to do this now.
The more I read about KA, the more I'm finding that their products are just not reliable like they used to be.
Been reading here about Bosch - thinking it's the right move, as we can't really go high end, like Viking or Thermador for the cooktop/oven.
