Ratings and Reviews
Working Well (again) “UPDATE”
I upgraded my two star review to five stars, because the app, once it is setup— and working appropriately— is simple to use and works well. The NEW app is even better. The Sears ACs we bought— purchase based upon the ability to set a schedule via the app— work great; quiet, efficient, simple controls (thank you, engineers in China).
OK, back to the app. It requires an account. The app and the AC unit can ONLY be setup to run and works only on 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks— not 5GHz Wi-Fi (many Wi-Fi routers can run both). Once set up, the app works via 5GHz and 4G LTE, but the AC unit itself must be on 2.4 GHz WiFi.
Other than simplicity, the original app was problematic; buggy. The new app is much better. Over 5GHz or 2.4GHz WiFi, or 4G LTE, the app gives device status, and can be turned on or off remotely. On the AC, the app can raise and lower temperatures, change status from Cool to Eco, for example, change fan speeds, and, again turn on and off— remotely.
The Scheduler was broken and did not work at all, but over the course of a few weeks, Ajay in support tracked down the problem and got it fixed. Twice. Scheduler works. I can change settings according to date and time and it works as expected, so review updated accordingly.
Ajay in support was persistent— a good trait— so it pays not to give up too quickly. Ajay would make a good Sears CEO. Sears still has issues.
I recommend that you download the new app and start over. Much improved.

Hi, thanks so much for the review! We hope you are enjoying the new Kenmore app!
Love… Love… LOVE MY REFRIGERATOR!!!
It’s deep, wide, nice shelf space. The shelf can be raised so I can put tall things, they fit perfectly!! Freezer is very roomy! Ice and crushed ice are perfect size! Deli drawer is very big and roomy for all my stuff. I love that it dings if the door is open. It’ll also send a notification to your phone letting you know it’s open… WOWWWW!!! I’m soooo impressed with this lovely fridge!! Ohhh… almost forgot, the outside is fingerprint resistant, such a beautiful, smooth surface. It’s very classy!!! I can go on and on, but I’m sure you get the picture. You can’t go wrong, you’ll love it!!
I tried this app with my new Kenmore Elite refrigerator. The app is poorly designed, does not work properly, and wouldn't be very useful if it did.
It was very tedious to create and configure my account. There are many layers of security. So many, that I suspect the app isn't very secure (like a cheap door with 15 deadbolts). I had to wait hours for the confirm email. After finally getting things connected, the fridge won't stay online longer than a few minutes.
The primarly function of the app seems to be automatically selling you over-priced filters. I'm pretty sure this feature is the only one that works.
Biggest gripe? You can't see what the actual fridge/freezer temps are! The app should show current and historical temps and notify you if the current temps go out of range. Duh!
I almost never change temp settings manually. Why would I need to do it remotely? If your account was compromised, think of the havoc a hacker (or ex-spouse) could wreak.
Energy usage history would be useful if it worked. The numbers are way too erratic to be accurate.
Who cares how many times the door was opened over the last day or week? I care if the door has been open longer than a few mins.
The app offers features that my fridge doesn't have (ex. Accela Ice)
Access to the user manual is nice. The FAQs aren't very useful.
In summary, a complete waste of time for my refrigerator. It may work better for other appliances.
