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.

shelves

peye 4/5/2022

Worst shelf configuration I have ever seen in a refrigerator. A light in the freezer would be a nice addition.

Missing Features

BromLovedProfile 4/5/2022

No more bisque GE Profile bottom freezer refrigerators! It was such a great product. Now the replacement bisque 21 cuft refrigerator is a top freezer. Constantly have to bend over to access the shelves. One width wide shelves, not adjustable for tall containers, no separate controls for freezer or frig, no temp gauges for freezer or frig, freezer is just big hole with no separate trays or baskets and no light.

Poor design

VL13 11/30/2021

We regret purchasing this product and wish we could turn back the clock, as we are now stuck with a refrigerator that has a poor design for our needs. We rarely use the top freezer because we focus on fresh foods, but the freezer occupies the most important space directly in front of the user and it is huge. To get what we need in the refrigerator, we have to bend down low, which is hard to do because we are both in our 70's. We have to reach deep to get anything because the shelves are recessed, due to the oversized shelves on the door. The hydrator bins are smaller than we are accustomed to, again because of the oversized door shelves. We have to avoid bumping our heads on the freezer unit, including the handle, as we come up. We have to reach around the thermostat which is situated in the most ridiculous position--right in the middle front of the top shelf instead of on the side or back of the fridge. If only we could return this product and get one more suitable for our needs.

Terrible prepare to waste all of your food

Haginsand 10/29/2021

My landlord bought this new frigerator for our unit and after a day or two it stopped freezing and keeping food cold . You can hear that's it on and it's faintly blowing air but the freezer is only at 40 degrees and the fridge only gets to 50 I had to put thermometers in there to check because it can be very deceiving seeing your ice cream slowly soften over the course of days .

So far exceeds expectations

ken_l 9/20/2021

Very recent purchase so difficult to give detailed review at this time. So far so good. I would say appliance is better than expected based on past experience with GE appliances. Will be able to give a better assessment of performance after longer time frame with this item.

Problematic Design!

Bonnieshe 9/2/2021

After waiting months for the 2nd refrigerator to arrive, the 1st one being damaged as well as numerous calls to GE & the shipper to flip the doors so I could open them in my small kitchen space, this fridge has been a big disappointment! The only good feature is the textured bisque color! Aside from there being no light in the freezer & it's shelves stop 2/3 of the way back to protect vents, I presume, stuff falls off! Trying to get the temp just right without my stuff freezing in the fridge is tricky because of no independent controls! The fridge is quite spacious & much deeper than my 27 yr old side by side Whirlpool was, my kitchen is small & it's practically in the middle of my kitchen, oh well... However, given the other issues, the one that gave it my bad rating is a serious design flaw! Whenever you open the freezer 1st & "close" it, then open n' close the fridge door, bolo for the freezer becoming ajar without noticing it! It will always pop open, but is supposed to shut right away, but doesn't close a lot of the time! I've had my freezer items partially thaw out a few times now & have to always be vigilant about making sure it's sealed shut! It does this trick most of the time, but not always! Who can remember this *EVERY* time one opens the doors to this unit!? I had a GE repairman out within the 1st month, it did this trick repeatedly for him! He said it's the design & nothing can be done about it! Basically, I gave it one star for this main reason! I miss my Whirlpool that after 27 yrs developed an untrustworthy "repaired" freon leak! I would stay clear of this troublesome GE model!
