    Main Key Features

  • The ENERGY STAR-qualified construction of the Kenmore Elite 51373 means that this unit doesn’t consume copious amounts of energy. The result is a machine that doesn’t waste natural resources and allows you to make savings over time because of lower electricity bill prices.
  • Another great function of the Elite 51373 is its MULTI-AIR FLOW SYSTEM. This air flow system means more advanced cooling to keep your produce fresh longer.
  • You can control the temperature inside the fridge directly from the exterior-mounted ELECTRONIC CONTROLS. The electronic controls even have a digital display to make it easy to use and understand.
  • You don’t have to open the fridge just to change the temperature and this results in more energy savings and better temperature control.
  • On the inside of the refrigerator, you will find THREE ADJUSTABLE SHELVES, two humidity-controlled crispers, three gallon clear adjustable door bins, a slide-out shelf, a deli drawer, three plastic door bins in the freezer, and one wire slide-out basket.
  • The water and ice DISPENSER is located on the exterior of the freezer door for easy access.
  • On the inside an ICE-MAKER ensures that your dispenser is always ready with either cubed or crushed ice, plus you’ll have extra ice for any other needs you may have.
  • The FILTER on the water dispenser can last up to six months and it is NSF-certified, meaning that it does its job well.
  • The FROST-FREE DESIGN ensures that you won’t have to deal with the hassle of having to manually perform defrost cycles.
