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.

Terrible unless you like warm food

12/4/2018

This refrigerator died after only 5 days. Then a replacement is on backorder with no sign of a replacement after a week of no refridgerator. So if you like to look at the pretty lights and have warm food no water or ice then this is the refridgerator to get.

I love my ge slate refrigerator

11/16/2018

The slate color with stainless steel handles goes with my other stainless steel appliances and I dont have a million fingerprints on the refrigerator. The dual ice makers are very convenient when entertaining. I like this refrigerator so much that I bought the exact same refrigerator for my lower level when we finished it

Easy to organize

11/11/2018

This unit replaced a Kenmore 5-door model. Im in love with my new GE. It is spacious and easy to organize. The adjustable shelves and small ice maker are perfect for our household. The water dispenser area is tall which is helpful in filling large containers.

Ice box storage capacity

9/15/2018

The ice box storage capacity is not big enough. It does not hold enough cubes to fill more than 2-3 large capacity Tervis mugs. If several adults fill their mugs it takes a while for the ice box to regenerate more ice. Other than that we like the refrigerator.

Sounds like a refrigerated freight train 27/7.

9/7/2018

This is the second GE refrigerator. 1st one compressor would not stop running and was so loud. Dealer came and got that one. Replaced with this one. Everyone that comes to visit is shocked at how loud it is when running. We have to keep radio or tv on so we dont go nuts. I was a GE customer for years never again. Yucky

Nice Upgrade

8/30/2018

`Have long admired the French Door fridges and GE is a name brand we trust. I love the fact I can adjust the shelves for whatever I need to store and appreciate the fact the shelf in the freezer is not plastic. Had to get used to the little noises the fridge makes but overall its a quiet appliance. Love the Slate color as it goes well with the rest of our kitchen.

ONE OF THE BETTER PRODUCTS OUT HERE

8/3/2018

I was on a budget and bought this from a GE certified retail outlet store and the owner helped me pick this one. He didnt lead me wrong at all It went cold super quick after plugging it in and made ice quickly. The slate color is better then the stainless reg or black which he told me not to get if I have a very active household and with teenagers and dogs it would have scratched up quick. The only down fall of this fridge is that it doesnt have enough shelve room for a tall family size ranch bottle or salsa bottle. I had to make one shelf really short to fit it which I didnt like so I put everything in smaller bottles and it worked out great.

I have had this fridge for a little over 1 year now and am on unit number 2. The first unit freezer and ice maker went out just shy of 1 year after install date. The ice maker struggles to keep up even when it is working. It is a great fridge for space but am disappointed in the quality given the issues I have had

Love this refrigerator

4/16/2018

I bought this refrigerator a week ago. So far I have loved it. There is pleOnty of room and you can find things in there much easier than a side to side. The only downside I have found so far is the ice/water dispenser in the door. If it is dark in your kitchen it is difficult to see which option is chosen. Until you learn the order of cubed crushed and water you have no idea which option is chosen. GE should figure out a way to light up just the words cubed crushed water so it can be seen easier. Other than that I have been totally happy with my purchase

Bought 2 months ago. First 3 door have owned and really liking features. Loving the whole to half shelf. Read a lot of reviews comments before purchasing. The only reasons I did not give 5 stars was as previous reviewers stated it is somewhat noisy and have to watch to not remove glass too quickly after filling as will drip. Being the picky person I am the door handles are hard to keep clean as is the water/ice dispenser. These are small complaints and hopefully in 10 years the only ones I have
