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.

Hardware suspect

Moose55 6/29/2020

My wife does not like the 'noises' and the controls in front that block items on the top shelf. The crisper drawer keeps falling out. It looks like some foam was 'stuffed' in there to prevent this. A screw in the freezer handle just broke off. Not a good piece of metal I suppose. Our 'useless' service contract does not cover this.

Poorly designed

Jlk11 4/9/2020

Poor interior design does not allow for storage of milk, juice, or large containers unless you remove a shelf, leaving only 2 shelves. No interior freezer light and the refrigerator light bulb was broke when it was delivered and it took them 6 months to replace it. Stores do not carry the bulb. The temp constantly fluctuates in both the freezer and refrigerator. So disappointed because all my appliances are GE and I love them.

Worst ever!

mammyrose 2/29/2020

This is worst fridge ever. Refrigerator works ok. Freezer is lousy. Ice cubes are tiny from melting & refreezing. Parts are ordered they say. I am very unhappy with this situation. Should have been resolved yesterday now they put me off till Monday

Carverite1 2/11/2020

Firm study handles, extra large pull out drawers and excellent amount of shelf storage on the door. Freezer is very deep with a shelf on the body and two adjustable shelves on the door. The finish is a bright white and easy to clean.

Cools very well

jackie294 2/4/2020

We are pleased with the performance of this refrigerator. It cools very well. My only complaint is that it is smaller than I would've liked (I bought online, so didn't realize how small it would be inside) and I wish that the guides for the shelving in the refrigerator were at slightly different heights. It's impossible to store gallons of milk, boxes of wine or 2L soda bottles on the glass shelves when all three shelves are in. You will have to store those items in the door, which is the warmest place in any refrigerator.

Received the delivery approximately 530pm. By 730, Freezer was at just above 0 (3) and Refrigerator was at 37. Not quite as large as I thought, but quiet, COLD, and doesnt leak! Last one, not GE, door seals continuosly leaked, causing self defrost to continuosly run, and creating puddles at the base of the fridge.

Great Value from Sears Outlet

edanieli 11/8/2019

This is a $1,300 frig that I paid about $500 for at a Sears Outlet. A great deal on a well-made product that has a good warranty. Most important, I should be able to get parts for it for a long time.

Roomy, but....

Jay22 10/2/2019

I was disappointed not to find a freezer light. Even our old cheaper Kenmore had a freezer light. And the high pitched noise (inverter?) is almost unbearable when it comes on. Otherwise, it's got lots of room and I'm hoping to get used to the noises, it has lots of noises. Ice maker noise was expected, but motor noise is louder than our 20 yr. old refrigerator.

Bought what fits

dddaaa 8/24/2019

We had a French door previous but at 20 yo it was starting to die. I wanted another French door but could not find anything to fit under the cabinet . I only got it yesterday but because freezer is top we have to bend to get anything out At 60 & older this is a little difficult, especially after being used to just reaching in Although the product seems nice we had to remove a whole shelf just to fit milk container and Hawaiian Punch container so now I lost shelf space I understand my problems are not GE'S fault but if they or any other frig company for that fact would make a size standard for older homes under cabinet

would like to do it over

frigexpensive 7/30/2019

super expensive, in fact double the price for model below but that model did not have the dairy drawer. Can't believe to include a dairy drawer warrants and additional $700. The shelves cannot be adjusted, other than omitting them. There is not enough height on shelf to stand up bottle of wine, nor to store turkey. Very poor design. Refrigerator light takes up valuable height space on top shelf.

Skimped on flexibility

WISHiCOULDdoOVER 7/8/2019

Shelves are not adjustable. There are just so many shelves for the slots available. Once cannot stand a bottle of wine (or anything of this height) upright on a shelf unless you take omit a shelf completely. The designer should have given the purchaser more options for shelf abjustment. This model is twice the price of the GTS model which is very similar in size. The main difference is the "cheese" drawer which the GTS does not have. Therefore you pay double for a drawer that usually comes standard with most refrigerators .

Door Hinge Problems

RNACROUCH 6/20/2019

Purchased this refrigerator in December and by May I was having to contact GE to get the refrigerator and freezer doors replaced. The hinge located between the freezer and refrigerator doors was ripping out the side of the refrigerator door and had cracked the bottom of the freezer door. Took almost 4 weeks to get replacement doors.

Mitch41 6/16/2019

The middle of the refrigerator is useless. The built in controls and an overhead stuck right in the middle is as dumb as it gets. And I am dealing with some extraordinarily dumb designs & people these days. What a shame.
