New Fridge

Plumbwild 8/15/2020

The refrigerator is stylish and modern. We are happy with our purchase. The only negative is the quantity of ice the ice maker makes. We had to buy ice trays to ensure we have enough.

Love Love!

SDH11 7/17/2020

I love my new fridge! It is beautiful and I can easily see and organize all the food. In my old fridge stuff would "get lost" behind other things-it won't happen in this unit!! The freezer feels so much bigger than my last unit. I am a bit surprised how difficult it is to open the freezer door. It forces me to have one hand on the fridge and pull with lots of muscle to get it open. I hope this changes as the "newness" wears off.

Drastic loss in quality

Nomoregefourme 6/24/2020

I purchased a similar style GE fridge 10 years ago. I wanted a second fridge and because I liked the GE fridge I got 10 years ago I decided another GE would be good. Boy was I wrong. I had both doors replaced once and the left door replaced a second time. Insulation seeped though the seams on the doors in manufacturing and was not cleaned off before packaging. The fridge is loud. I can barely hear my 10 year old fridge when I am standing next to it. The new fridge is on a different level in the house and I can clearly hear it from the first floor. The door is noisy when it closed and does not close smoothly. Additionally, when the freezer temp is set to zero the ice-cream is soft. I need to adjust the temp too minus 6 so the ice cream is solid. In my older fridge a o degree freezer setting has kept the ice cream perfectly solid. So a huge disappointment in the loss of quality over the 10 years. GE quality has greatly diminished form the last GE product I purchased.  I will not recommend GE products to anyone nor will I purchase any more GE products on the future.

What a refrigerator should be

GolfbyMagic 5/20/2020

We have had the refrigerator for 3 weeks and are happy with the looks and performance so far. 3 things keep this from being a 5 star review and most are fairly small. The one that is more concerning is the force with which you must pull to open the freezer. You can see the handle and freezer front give with the effort. I suspect this will be the reason for my first call to GE for support. Second I would be happy if GE could tell me how to get the remaining plastic shrink wrap out of the crevices of the fridge. Finally for supposedly being finger print resistant, it isn't.

Great value for a quiet refrigerator

NoDeb 5/8/2020

We really love the slate finish and not having to worry about smudges and fingerprints. The counter depth is also nice because our kitchen island is directly across from the refrigerator; we have more space to walk through. The refrigerator was a bit noisy on the first day when the freezer was coming to temperature but I never hear it now unless ice is dropping into the bin. I think it is quiet. It is well lit throughout and a great size for the two of us. I had a larger refrigerator before this one and do miss my larger vegetable and fruit drawers but the counter depth is worth it.

It's still new but has twice the room as the old side by side and fit the same space. Love the color. If it lasts I'll be a happy camper!
