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.

Noisy!!!!

Done trying 2/5/2022

The freezer fan has a high pitched whine that is extremely annoying!! They put a new fan in. The new fan is just as noisy. I am sure I will have to go through a lot of hassle to get a frig that works properly.

Love this fridge

Fridge lover kc 1/23/2022

We were looking to replace our standard fridge but i desperately wanted a new fridge with a freezer on the bottom. The problem? We are constricted by size. We couldn't go any wider than 30 inches and truthfully needed to be under that. There aren't a lot of options for bottom freezer on such a small fridge. But after a lot of research and patience, we went with the GE and i don't regret it! The ice maker is awesome. It has a little more space then our previous fridge and is WAY easier to organize. We've had it a few months now and i still smile when i walk into the kitchen. i definitely recommend.

Small Freezer

Preemies 8/7/2021

I'm still getting used to full shells & and learning about the need for organizing bins. However, my fresh vegetables seem to stay fresh longer. It's noisy & sometimes rattles. The freezer seems so much smaller than my comparable freezer on top refrigerator, same cubic ft. but doesn't seem to store as much food. Therefore, I can't buy extra with good sales.

Infored 6/19/2021

So far the fridge is working as I expected. I like the bright interior which makes it easy to see everything. Love the pull out drawer freezer. We won't hook up the ice make until our hard water is treated. I just wish the refrigerator came in a wider option. It is a bit narrow.

It's a refrigerator & it's black

One old guy 3/30/2021

So far it keeps the food in the refrigerator portion cold and the food in the freezer frozen. When it is running it can be loud and it even seems a little louder after we've had at a few months. It does the job, but if I sound less than enthused about the refrigerator it's because this refrigerator is smaller than the one it replaced and finding things in it is more difficult than in the other. Our last refrigerator unexpectedly quit and at the time there was not a lot of options readily available due to the Covid shut down etc. So we're lucky to have this one!

Bottom freezer

PAZAB 3/3/2021

The refrigerator is black and has a nice finish. I love the bottom freezer with ice maker. There is plenty of room for condiments, bottles, milk cartons. The refrigerator is extremely quiet.

RonB53 2/20/2021

Too us forever to find what we were looking for. once we located a supplier that carried this model and had it in stock it only took 7 days to get it. I installed it myself and the supplied instructions were very clear and precise.

Beautiful well working fridge!

Linzbrem 1/30/2021

We were ready for an upgrade from our 27 year old fridge and we were limited in our width options for our new fridge. Thankfully we found this beauty that fits perfectly and is exactly what I was looking for. I really wanted a water dispenser but unfortunately our width restrictions didn't allow a fridge that style so I'm overall very pleased with this option instead!

Loud Hum

Johnson75 9/10/2020

Fridge in general is good. But whilst it's running it makes a terrible high-pitched noise that pulses. Was told by a GE repairman that it's inevitable and unfixable.

Fruit and Vegetable bins

Collld 9/1/2020

On my current GE refrigerator, similar to this one, the right hand bin has a little latch which will allow the drawer to be moved to the left for removal without unloading everything in the door. (The hinges are on the right). You take the left side drawer (facing the unit) out of the refrigerator and press the latch in the center, and the right side drawer moves enough to the left so it can clear the door. GE thoughtfully did this in case your unit is close to a wall or other obstruction, and the door cannot go all the way to the right. Does this model have this feature? I see it mentioned nowhere in the manual.

It works, but you could do better.

TheAB 7/25/2020

Our Whirlpool broke after only 5 years. Our repairman said that GE is more durable, so we bought one. In terms of features and price, it is very similar to the Whirlpool we bought five years ago. However, it just isn't as good a build. Everything feels cheap and rickety. When you close the freezer door, it has trouble rolling in the shelves. The freezer shelves in particular feel flimsy...they don't move well, and feel like they are going to break any minute. The ice-maker works quickly, but the cubes come out all stuck together. The shelves are not nearly as configurable as the Whirlpool, and again, they just feel more rickety. The only thing I like better than the whirlpool; the door has tons of space, with deep, yet accessible shelving.

Timholmes2 7/23/2020

This fridge has plenty of space for large families. We have 5 boys and obviously have a ton of food to store but there is always enough room. The ice maker is also quite good and we never run out of ice.
