Great Features

JannyD 2/5/2022

Nice looking exterior, but what's inside, like the lighting, is so good, and makes it easier to see what is inside. It keeps my fruits and vegetables fresher, longer. No more brown lettuce or fruit going bad, which is great, because now, I don't have to throw that food out. It saves food waste and money on my electric bill. Thanks to Energy Star. I'm very happy with my purchase.

nice frig

Janet212 11/24/2021

This is a nice frig but upon delivery had a foot long dent in one side. The box was undamaged so assumption that this happened in factory before even boxed. Could not wait another 3 weeks as we moved our old one out for this one. Got some compensation for the damaged side and so far seems to be running OK. It is a little louder but its only because we are paying attention to everything about it. It is nice looking and we opted for the black.

Just what we needed

Papa Rhodes 4/2/2021

Bought this to replace our 18.1 cubic ft. GE refrigerator and it seems to have plenty of room for our needs. Freezer seems to be larger than our old one . Very pleased with it so far .Was told our old GE was a 5 year appliance and we got 10 years out of it so I have complete faith in my GE appliances.

GE Fridge Storage Review

makemt 1/14/2021

Closed storage areas are smaller than the previous model that I replaced with this one. Door storage is not closed at the bottom enabling things to fall through. Closed storage on the door is very small barely fits a LB of butter. The unit seems to run a lot more than the previous model. Having a full storage rack in the freezer as opposed to the half rack in the previous model seems to be more of a hindrance than a plus so far. The pull out storage drawer are also smaller and can't fit a carton of eggs in them. The unit was missing 2 screws that mount the bottom door hinge. Replacements were sent but they were the wrong size. Hoping this unit lasts as long as the previous model and wish they hadn't made the changes in the storage sizes.

Fine for non-top-of-the-line fridge

LucyMabel 1/6/2021

We picked this model based on our built-in space constraints, and it's fine for an inexpensive fridge. It seems rather noisy when the compressor runs (might be typical for lower-end models) and the inside lighting isn't optimal...the light itself is bright, but poorly placed, resulting in dark spots.

Emi2020 10/2/2020

I've had my fridge for less than a week, so far so good. the only concern is a weird noise i heard ONCE...that's why 4 stars. Maybe it's just breaking itself in. Will update review if needed. Other than that, it suits my needs and the purchase/installation was seemless. I've always been happy with my GE products.

Excellent fit in Tight space

abruzzi 8/1/2020

we were replacing an old Kenmore that exactly fit the space it was in. Had a hard time finding something that fit that space. This refrigerator did the job in a size that meets our needs and now allos some air circulation around the box.
