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.

Noisey

ceceliasummit 1/12/2021

This was the only product that was available that fit into the space that I had my choices were severely limited. I understand this is not the top-of-the-line that you make but as I said this was my only option that fit. At this point is it is extremely noisy at different periods of time as it cycles. Last night for some reason there were three points in its cycling that were so loud that it woke me up. It is at least bigger than what I had before but the cycling noise sometimes is very annoying. I would recommend this refrigerator only "as I have to have something."

Very loud

yz04 12/9/2020

I did not plan to purchase this fridge when I went to the store. But was attracted by its look and price. This fridge is relatively small and functional. But it is very loud. I could hear the humming when I was in bathroom. It is even louder than the one I replaced which was 18 years old. I do not like the wired shelves neither. I though about returning it. But decided to keep it in order not to waste resources especially during this pandemic.

Bought this refrigerator before thanksgiving to house all the extra food. So far it has been running good and doing the job it was bought to do. It will also come in handy when my three young kids start to eat me out of the house and we can't keep enough food in the upstairs refrigerator. Also, the price was excellent.

Our New GE Fridg

Ray76 10/11/2020

Really can't say to much at this time because we have only had this fridge for a few weeks. What I can say is it fit nicely in the amount of space we have available in our manufactured home and so far it is working well. We bought this unit to replace a larger fridge of a different brand that was only 3 years old and started having some serious problems. We contacted that company's extended warranty dept and they sent a repair person out to check out our problems with food in the fridge freezing up. They determined it was a circuit board problem and ordered a new circuit board and thermistor, came back a week later to install those parts. The next day I opened the fridge and checked the thermometer I had in the fridge, temp was 30 degrees and food was starting to freeze. I set the temp control to the highest temp setting to see if that would raise the temp to 38-40 degrees and checked later in the day and it had made it up to 34 degrees, so I thought that was good. A couple days later I found our food frozen again and the temp was down to 28 degrees. Called the mfgr warranty dept, they sent a repair person out and that person determined it was a compressor problem. They ordered a compressor and 2 weeks later called to say they finally received the compressor and came out the next day. Replaced the compressor, recharged the freon, removed a panel from the freezer compartment that was all iced up and thaw that with heat, checked for leaks and causes for the icing, and said everything should be good. 3 days later another call to the warranty dept. and I was demanding they replace that fridge as food was still getting frozen in the fridge and temp control set to warmest setting and fridge temp was 28 degrees. They said they'd contact the repair person to come check it out again. As a result, I just got fed up with all the trouble and made a trip down to my Lowes store and bought a this new GE fridge and had them haul away the 3 year old fridge and will never buy a product made by the other company who's fridge went bad 3 years after we got it and had no idea what was going on with it. My only hope is that this new GE lasts several years.

Wish it got colder

Mgatl 9/30/2020

You get what you pay for and luckily this was our second refrigerator for our at-home side business. The installers did not align part of the unit so we had to wait a week for a technician to come out for a literal 5 second visit. It was free for the warranty, but definitely a waste of time and energy for the tech. More on the product is that even on the coldest setting it does not seem to go below 41 degrees and that means we are constantly checking it for our cakes. Definitely would not purchase again if I was looking for above average performance.

So Far So Good!!!

Chris 60 9/23/2020

We have had the fridge now for 6 weeks and everything is working great. I do have 1 complaint though. A fridge in this price range should come with glass shelves or something better than cheap looking wire racks. Its not a good look for GE when other refrigerators have much better shelving. I am sure that GE is losing customers cause of this. It doesn't give that quality look when you see wire shelving.
