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.

Needs some better info in the booklet

Norma20 6/18/2020

I was surprised to find only one temp control for for this refrigerator. I find that it really needs to be turned all the way for ice cream to stay hard. I am keeping an eye on the food in the refrigerator to see if it is going to freeze. Your instruction booklet leaves a lot to be desired, really not a whole lot of information. This is the same size as my last refrigerator, but it appears somewhat smaller due to the layout inside.

Problems with refrigerator

Quuen 4/1/2020

This fridge has major defects. The doors do not work. If you open the top door the bottom door swings open and vice versa. If you shut one door the other one opens up. The food keeps spoiling. Milk goes bad in a few days. Adjusting the temperature does not help at all. I have had enough of this appliance

Loud noises. Not enough shelf space

Kryan83 1/7/2020

I love the look of my fridge from the outside, but the shelves are awkwardly small. It's really frustrating to put away a gallon of milk. My fridge makes noises all the time. I've never had a fridge that made this many noises

A simple refrigerator with a lot of space.

ChuckieM 12/31/2019

We bought this tor replace our old GE TBX 19.1 cubic foot refrigerator (which was still running fine after 26 years). Just thought it was time to replace it with something new from GE. It is very quiet and fit in the same space as the old unit even though it is wider, deeper. Only wish it had all the shelf adjustment settings like the old one. Still, we are very happy with this purchase.

Cole429 12/15/2019

Works great. Shelving space is ridiculous. I mean who designed this thing. When adjusting the shelves it leaves on space between the next.

I am grateful

FNShort 11/6/2019

I am grateful to have been given a free and new refrigerator. However, the lower area of the refrigerator is so low that I practically have to be on my knees to access it. Also, my family and I have hit the tops of our heads on the the area in between the refrigerator and the freezer as we remove items from the refrigerator. My granddaughter has had 2 concussions in her life and it is worrisome to me that she has experienced hitting her head in this refrigerator.

The shelving setup is not ideal. If you store a gallon jug in the door that's all the room you have for tall items.

Got what we paid for!

BKA91 9/4/2019

Satisfactory. No light in the freezer. Light in the refrigerator cabinet is blocked by items on the top shelf so the bottom 2/3 is dark. Shelf format is not flexible. 3 Shelves are full length so it limits ability to set up for tall items. Door shelves are large and handy.

Omari 9/20/2018

I bought this last year and it's still works like brand new even on the hottest summer days! Just make sure you keep it away from the wall and clean behind the fridge other than that this definitely will last you for years! Thanks GE

I hate this refrigerator

Systirs dad 9/20/2018

I hate it. The freezer has not light in it. You have to use a flashlight to find anything. The proportion of the freezer to the refrigerator is so poor that you have to get on your hands and knees to find things in the refrigerator section. The top shelf of the refrigerator is restricted by the control for temperature and light so that you can's slid even a medium bottle in with out tilting it (spilling). I am considering replacing it even though I will be out more than a $1000.
