I am in need of a new fridge and I am between two of them.

One is this KitchenAid and then one is a Whirlpool. These are the two models here:

KitchenAid -

Whirlpool -

There are things I like about the KitchenAid more than the Whirlpool, however there are multiple reviews of the KitchenAid one stating about ice buildup that causes the fridge to not cool down.

I am coming off of a Samsung fridge that did just that, and it was super annoying when I had to deal with it. So I really do not want to deal with it again.

Is this something that is very common with these? Or is this a vocal minority just letting people know about their problems? The Samsung fridges this seems to be very wide spread so I am wondering if that is the case here too. I did not really read much about that happening to the Whirlpool model I linked above when reading reviews either.

So that is something I am a bit concerned about when spending nearly $3k for a fridge. Is this something I should be concerned about at a wide spread problem?

Whirlpool and KitchenAid are the same. Kitchen Aid is supposed to be Whirlpool's high end models.
