Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Spacious

Jenny2022 4/13/2022

Plenty of room on doors and in main storage areas. Freezer shelves do not reach the back wall, leaving a gap between the back of shelf and the back wall. Wish it came with ice cube trays and an ice bin, preferably one for the door.

So far so good...

JKinHB 3/27/2022

First I should say I received this fridge as part of an energy efficiency program. I probably would not have paid this much for any fridge. I've had it a month or so and it's great. The delivery guy reversed the door hinges in about 10 min. It's quiet. I filled the ice trays and had ice the next morning. The factory settings put the top shelf at about 40 degrees and the bottom shelf at about 37 degrees (yes, I have thermometers due to a failing old fridge). It's very spacious, the drawers are great, the space on the door is amazing, you can put gallon jugs on 2 of the 3 door shelves!

Would not recommend

Getanother 3/25/2022

Only good thing about this refrigerator is that we got it free from the power company in exchange for our old one. This fridge is not well designed and appears to be made of cheap materials: there is no freeze light; the shelves are not spaced well making stowing of milk and other tall containers difficult - it will not fit a wine bottle in the main compartment unless you lay it on its side; the fruit an veggie baskets are overly large which minimizes space for the shelves; there is a space for an second butter shelf on the door but it does not come with one; shelves in the fridge and freezer have no back lip to prevent items from falling off; and the freezer door shelves are too small. Minimal information in the owners manual.

mikeonthebie 2/20/2022

This is a very nice fridge. It has an adjustable freezer rack and plenty of shelf space. A big plus for me is that I can fit two 1 gallon jugs of milk in the door.

Large freezer area

VickiASef 1/17/2022

I love the large top freezer area. But I have two concerns. In order to get into the refrigerator section, you have to bend over to put in or take out things. Also, because the bottom of the refrigerator door is so close to the floor with only about 3/4 to 1" clearance, it often smashes my foot upon opening. I like that it's Energy Star rated. I recommend it for its freezer, but the refrigerator part is good for people 5 foot high or shorter.

Good appliance

Glojlc 12/10/2021

This GE refrigerator replaces a 25 year old GE that was still operational in my home. I wanted a more energy efficient appliance. After installation I noticed the temperature of the unit at the recommended setting was actually colder. Wow! I thought my old fridge was working pretty well but I expect the new model is even better. There is not a light in the freezer. I'm undecided about whether or not this is bothersome. Overall, it's a nice appliance.

Doors won't close completely.

Friskee 11/9/2021

I like the new frig but one things bothers me a little. When you go to close the doors of the frig and freezer, they don't close all the way unless you check them and push to close them completely. Don't know what the problem is. Can you offer suggestions????

JeffyJoe 10/26/2021

No GE badge or plug to cover holds in door on delivery. Light switch broke in less than two weeks. I long for the days when you plug a GE frig in, push it in the corner and checked after 25 years to make sure the lightbulb was still working.

Bottom bins to high. Shelves on door not adjustable. Freezer shelf doesn't go all the way back. If you're tall or have a bad back the top refrigerator shelf is useless and I'm only 5'6" tall.

I am tired of hitting my head on the freezer door handle. Reason being, I have to bend over to get anything in/out of the fridge. I am 5'6". Not that tall. I would recommend this product to a shorter person.
