    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 and 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.

    Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

    A well-designed refrigerator

    Submitted by ProgressBob - 12/16/2020

    We have had this refrigerator only a little over 1 month, but it is solidly built, and we feel confident it will give us good service for a very long time. It does not have all the bells and whistles, but it has clear digital controls, keeps perfect temperature in both compartments, makes plenty of ice, has plenty of space, is very quiet, and we especially like the roomy shelves in the doors. Also the black slate finish is quite perfect and beautiful.

    Does the job, Aesthetically pleasing

    Submitted by Wenbeauty - 10/13/2020

    First in for most, when you buy this refrigerator, please wait 6 to 7 hours before you start loading up food in it because you will overstressed the motor and it will shorten the lifespan of your appliance. Secondly, this refrigerator does what it is designed to do, preserve your foods. I like the digital thermometer and the door alarm because certain people in my family have a problem closing the door. The only downside is that I thought I was getting a refrigerator that dispensed filtered water, this one does not. It does have an internal icemaker which produces ice regularly, no problem. It was a little pricey because it is a counter depth French door refrigerator that is black slate in color. For the price though, I would have expected it to have a dispenser for filtered water (internally) with filter cartridge included. Otherwise I have no negative feedback regarding this Appliance.

    Submitted by BobReviews - 9/28/2020

    Replacing a 25 year old GE side by side that gave up the ghost. Didn't owe us anything. This bottom freezer drawer French door refrigerator has highly functional spacing for refrigerator and freezer storage. So pleased that it reached normal running temperatures within 6 hours. Interior lighting, door control panel, and adjustability are great.

    Happy

    Submitted by EC12345 - 9/19/2020

    I like the fridge - it fits smoothly with the cabinets and counter. The top rim of the fridge is a bit higher than the body of the fridge, so my worry about the space being too tight for the body of the fridge under the top cabinet was unfounded. The two things that I wish I knew about the fridge before buying it (but probably would not have changed my mind about buying the fridge) are: (1) one needs to apply quite a lot of force to pull out the freezer drawer and (2) the fridge doors do not close by themselves. Again, you need to put a bit of force in swinging them closed (or pushing them close) for the doors to seal back, otherwise they just remain cracked open (sure, the fridge alarm will start after a while, but I wish they did not remain open). The fridge is the smudge-free version so the handprints are not as visible, but you can still see them. They wipe off easily enough. Overall, we are happy with the fridge.

    Submitted by daniel72 - 9/15/2020

    Keeps an even temperature throughout the shelves and compartments. Lots more storage capacity than our last counter-depth refrigerator. The doors have to be closed by hand all the way. You can't just give them a shove to close them. The exterior is very easy to keep clean.

    Submitted by TennisCathy - 7/22/2020

    I wasn't sure if I would like not having the water service and having the ice maker inside the freezer, but the simplicity of it and knowing I won't have to deal with the ice maker breaking, like my two previous refrigerator/freezers, is wonderful! It is smaller than my previous refrigerators as well, but again, I like this because it helps me not over shop.

    Looks great

    Submitted by JDRcali - 6/24/2020

    We've only had it for 2 days, but so far, we love it. The black slate finish looks great and the operating noise level is pretty good, about the same as our old one. The glass shelves and brackets feel sturdy. Door storage is great, and the doors/hinges feel robust enough to hold the heavy bottles of water, juice, etc. We especially like being able to access the left/right vegetable bins without having to open both doors (not the case on some other ones we looked at.) Freezer space is ample. We don't have a water line hooked up, so we can't speak to the ice maker or filter.

    Submitted by mdsnoopy77 - 6/2/2020

    This refrigerator is replacing an upright side beside of the same cubic size. The refrigerator can store about twice the old side by side could. The freezer portion is a tad bit smaller however, is able to store larger items than the old side by side model. I was concerned about not having a door ice and water dispenser when purchasing but that has been a non-issue at my house with the new refrigerator.

    Submitted by TJ_D - 5/26/2020

    I'm not a paid reviewer or anything. Truth is, it's been a great refrigerator. Chose this one cause it fits exactly in my cabinet opening. Lots of space, and good lighting. Not really any "cons" to this thing to list. The freezer is a bit hard to pull open, but I'm sure that's for sealing reasons. And it's slightly more noticeable in terms of sound when running, but again - nothing I'd consider bad. I would certainly recommend this if your looking to purchase.

    Good basic refrigerator

    Submitted by RB99 - 5/19/2020

    Like all counter-depth refrigerators, it is expensive for basic features (no water, no ice in door), but the ice maker does a good job of making adequate ice for our family. Inside is well lit with plenty of storage compartments. The freezer door is very tight (difficult to open). Noises are typical with most refrigerators. Our last fridge (a different brand) had 6 service calls in 3 years (most for the ice maker). So far, so good with this one (after 1 month).

    Swore I would never buy another GE appliance, but needed during quarantine and Home Depot was able to get this to me the fastest. Problem with stabilizing it. Freezer handle came loose, door bins arrived cracked. Refrigerator sounds like a symphony. Now right refrigerator door came off. Home dept sends me to GE, GE back to Home Depot and finally service is arrange for handle through protection plan. All this in less then a month fo receiving.

    Submitted by fckdsmpjisodafjp - 5/10/2020

    The overall fit and finish seems very good. We really like the layout and interior lighting. Very quiet. We paid $1907 at Costco which includes an additional year of warranty. The only annoyance so far has been the protective plastic wrapping which is a bear to fully remove as it is pinched behind various gaskets and plates. Surely there is a better way to wrap the appliance.
