Forget about ratings. All current refrigerators are equally prone to
repairs. This is evidenced by the fact that you cannot buy a refrigerator
with an warranty in excess of one year.
The only way out is to buy a five year warranty in addition to the factory
warranty. Costs maybe $ 100 but is worth it.
We bought a Jennair French Door 3 years ago(2,000 bucks). The compressor had
to be replaced after two years and it broke down again in the following
year. We were glad we had an extended warranty. Otherwise the repairs would
have cost us $ 900.
They don't make them like they used to, any more, and you better believe it.
Refrigerators used to run for 20 years.
The same holds true for all kitchen appliances. Right now we are waiting for
a new display for our 2 year old GE Double Oven.
Our new dishwasher broke down twice, so far.
