I must purchase a refrigerator and am seeking wisdom from "those who know and know that they know."  I am seeking the truth (which will hopefully be in the form of a top-freezer with ice-maker that is less than $600).  Any assistance for this humble novice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Not a problem. You can buy a nice Whirlpool or Roper ref. for about that amount or less.  Roper is just an economy line of W/P, just not as fancy.  Check with your local Lowes to see what they have.  Whirlpool/Roper/KitchenAid are the only brands I recommend.

A Sears Kenmore with a model number starting with 106. is a whirlpool built machine.
" Giving numerical data to Sears management is like giving a monkey a machine gun. No one knows for certain what will happen, but you can be sure of two things... It will be real messy, and only the monkey will be unharmed"

Yes, the Kenmore ref. with the 106 prefix is a Whirlpool ref., but I did not list that brand because then he would have to deal with SEARS (K-Mart) for any warranty issues.  Would not wish that on anyone, especially now with the Sears/A&E mess after K-Mart bought out Sears. The techs are leaving in droves.
