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.

Works Well - A Little Noisy

smcclary 8/29/2020

Pleased with the layout and it does the job as far as keeping things cold. It is slightly noisy, with a frequent high-pitched whine. Better than our older fridge, though.

lroy0410 1/21/2020

The room inside this refrigerator is crazy! We are actually able to increase our grocery shopping. Having the freezer on the bottom is so handy for the shorter members of our household. Also, talk about quiet! You cannot even tell that it is running!! Definitely one of the best purchases we have EVER made!

Jan1369 12/31/2019

Refrigerator area is great, but the freezer space seems a bit small compared to my much smaller refrigerator that I had to replace. Otherwise, it is much quieter than my old unit! I just hope that this will last as long as my old fridge that was 30 years old before it died!!

lroy0410 12/30/2019

We upgraded our refrigerator after using the same one for over a decade. We went with GE because of the quality and value for the money. I believe that this is the BEST purchase we have ever made! So much more room, quiet fan operation, digital temperature controls, an open door alarm, and a spacious bottom freezer are our favourite features. We could not be happier with this fridge!

Sleek, Simple

mayer12 12/26/2019

Great, has door alarm, easy to set temps. Sometimes will run a little louder than I would want but its only for about 10 seconds. Dramatically reduced our power bill coming from a 90s fridge. Could use more compartments to help organize better.

Geonit 11/18/2019

I like this refrigerator tho if I'd had room for a bigger one I'd have chosen a larger one. I think the door wasted space in the way the unlovable shelves were placed.

rsdmk 9/11/2019

Surprised at the raised "things" at front of the top, as our cupboard doors can no longer open. Never had a refrigerator without an opening for the butter dish in the door before. Guess we'll get used to it on the shelf.

A great fridge except for 1 detail

Cabal468 8/27/2019

Our old GE fridge quit working so we replaced it with a new one. It's larger than our old one, which is great, but we bought it because it was advertised as showing the actual temperature as well as the set temperature. Unfortunately, it doesn't actually show the actual temperature, this was disappointing as this feature is what saved our food when our old one was on its last leg(I saw the temps riding and we were able find a home for most of our food before it went out completely.) and the feature that we most wanted in a fridge.

Ken and Donna 4/2/2019

I would like freezer to be a little different.....not as much space as my last refrigerator had. Ice cube tray is too big......wish it was deeper and less space for it to take up. Hard to reach into turn off ice when it starts to overflow.

First GE Appliance I've bought

maddmann 3/14/2019

After many years of purchasing appliances, this is the first GE I have bought. Looks good, size I wanted..so far so good (in just 6days). I had heard that GE has done a lot of good things with their appliances so I was comfortable making the switch to GE. Very happy with the purchase so far. Thank you

Marian3536 1/24/2019

Great appliance Was looking for as bottom freezer because I was hired of not being able to find things in my old refrigerator especially on the bottom shelf. Now all is at eye level. Love my new refrigerator.

Good, but freezer bins are hard to organize

timbo781 1/17/2019

Overall I like this frig, but the bin style freezer compartment is such that things get buried and it's hard to know what all is in there. I suggest a third level, or more compartment partitions. Also it would be nice of the freezer "drawer" were full extension instead of three quarters - hard to access stuff to the rear.

Mediocre

Pat_1 11/10/2018

We purchased the previous GE refrigerator in 1963, and this new one doesn't perform as well as the one it replaced. I bought this new one because I could no longer fix the old one, which had better food and drink chilling ability During operation, it occasionally emits odd noises. When the time comes for repairs, I doubt I can fix the new one.
