Sears Coldspot refrigerators were sold between 1928 and 1976 and came with a one-year full warranty. The sealed refrigeration system of every Coldspot refrigerator was warranted for a period of five years.
In 1976, Sears changed the brand name from Coldspot to Kenmore. As of 2015, Kenmore refrigerators and freezers are covered by a one-year limited warranty. To know more about the Sears guarantee, call 1-800-MY-HOME.
The first electric food refrigerators were poorly designed, expensive and difficult to maintain. When Sears, Roebuck and Co. debuted the Coldspot refrigerator at the Paris International Exhibition in 1929, the public reacted well to the relatively streamlined, more-affordable cold-food storage units.
