Great Looking and Roomy

phd911 10/25/2020

So far we love this refrigerator! It looks fantastic and has lots of room inside. The sliding snack drawer is a great feature for allowing you to alter the space below it for your needs. Reversing the door was also very easy to do. Everything was taped and packaged well to prevent shifting and damage to the unit. Love the compartments and slide out bins in the freezer for organizing foods.

Spacious refrigerator

Pebbles 2 8/26/2020

We purchased this bottom freezer to replace a GE top freezer we've had since 7/1994. The current top freezer styles were not to our liking so we decided to try a bottom freezer. The refrigerator part is spacious, well lit and will be saving our backs since we don't have to bed over to look throught the veg/fruit bin. We didn't hook up the automatic ice maker because the freezer makes ice in less than 2 hours. We can't fit as much food in the bottom freezer but will adapt. The bottom freezer door is a bit noisy when pulling in and out. Yes the stainless steel shows fingerprints but I use a disinfectant cleaner on the handles daily anyway.

MN Bobby 8/3/2020

We greatly enjoy this refrigerator! The unit runs very quietly, and that is a big plus. The main door has large spaces between shelves, and this allows storing large bottles, like milk, easily. If I have any suggestion, have the manual show the location of the sliding tab to turn off the ice maker, in the factory installed version. The dealer helped me find it!

CJ Whit 7/6/2020

LauraP01 7/6/2020

I bought this fridge to fit a tight space in an older home (1950s). I was originally looking for a 30" width counter depth, but this fridge fit the bill at a slightly deeper dimension. It is quiet and sleek. Cools quickly and easy to install. Does attract fingerprints (but so does any stainless steal), just use some stainless steal cleaner and she shines bright!

Can't get a new fridge fast enough

LK407 6/24/2020

This fridge is a total piece of garbage and GE refuses to take accountability. The fridge makes such loud banging noises at all hours of the day and night - I can barely sleep through the night. Somehow, GE has stated that there is nothing they can do to fix the fridge. So, I'm just supposed to live with a fridge that prevents me from sleeping? Wild.

Spacious refrigerator!

CrazyCookingMomma 6/12/2020

I would give this a 5, but the freezer area is rather small for me. I purchased 2 units for my kitchen (I cook a lot, with fresh ingredients), and didn't necessarily require the freezers. The freezers do have ice makers, which we haven't run a line to yet to try out. The drawer style just isn't conducive to a lot of usable space. For me, though, the units are amazing. The door shelves are nice and deep to accommodate falling jugs and anything else you want to fit into them. The upper shelves in the door are adjustable, so you can move them up a notch if needed. The LED lighting is very nice, and the shelves are good and deep. TONS of space in these units. My mother says, "It looks like a grocery store!"
