The Amana brand refrigerator is not bad by any means. However, I will say that the door can be difficult to open from time to time but I feel that the issue has more to do with an uneven floor than it does with the construction of the refrigerator. The same reason more than likely applies to why the freezer door does not always shut firmly unless all but slammed. Noise Level I would say that there is little to no noticeable noise created by this refrigerator apart from the soft electrical hum. Temperature Control The Amana brand refrigerator has a temperature control system that is both easy to use and easy to understand. Ease of Cleaning Unless the mess was created by some kind of sticky and gross leakage, the cleaning of the shelves and drawers is very simple and not at all time consuming. Durability I have not had the refrigerator long enough to give good information here, it was only recently purchased to replace a slightly smaller refrigerator that had stopped working. Design The simple white of the Amana refrigerator looks like many other refrigerators and would look like it belonged in any other kitchen just as well as it looks like it belongs in mine.
