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.

Loud Hum

Johnson75 9/10/2020

Fridge in general is good. But whilst it's running it makes a terrible high-pitched noise that pulses. Was told by a GE repairman that it's inevitable and unfixable.

Fruit and Vegetable bins

Collld 9/1/2020

On my current GE refrigerator, similar to this one, the right hand bin has a little latch which will allow the drawer to be moved to the left for removal without unloading everything in the door. (The hinges are on the right). You take the left side drawer (facing the unit) out of the refrigerator and press the latch in the center, and the right side drawer moves enough to the left so it can clear the door. GE thoughtfully did this in case your unit is close to a wall or other obstruction, and the door cannot go all the way to the right. Does this model have this feature? I see it mentioned nowhere in the manual.

It works, but you could do better.

TheAB 7/25/2020

Our Whirlpool broke after only 5 years. Our repairman said that GE is more durable, so we bought one. In terms of features and price, it is very similar to the Whirlpool we bought five years ago. However, it just isn't as good a build. Everything feels cheap and rickety. When you close the freezer door, it has trouble rolling in the shelves. The freezer shelves in particular feel flimsy...they don't move well, and feel like they are going to break any minute. The ice-maker works quickly, but the cubes come out all stuck together. The shelves are not nearly as configurable as the Whirlpool, and again, they just feel more rickety. The only thing I like better than the whirlpool; the door has tons of space, with deep, yet accessible shelving.

Very roomy and great ice machine

Timholmes2 7/23/2020

This fridge has plenty of space for large families. We have 5 boys and obviously have a ton of food to store but there is always enough room. The ice maker is also quite good and we never run out of ice.

Roomy capacity

Jfd5261 7/8/2020

I particularly like the fact that I was able to purchase a freezer below, black appliance. Stainless steel, double door would not have worked in my kitchen.

Roomy interior

WAIslander 7/3/2020

A lot of space to store things and be able to see them - no hidden corners for leftovers to hide. The shelves in the door are also quite large for condiments and beverages.

Only one complaint

Chi sei 5/15/2020

It seems to work well I like the display and setting of temperatures, the alarm for opened door, the shape and quantity of ice cubes. I do not like the noise generates by the sliding drawer in the freezer.

Very nice frig

Lotus 007 2/22/2020

I'm upgrading to a larger frig. I spent a lot of time looking at several models and makes at Lowes. Very happy I choose this one. Customer service is wonderful and prompt, when I called with a question. The spacing and design inside is perfect. The door shelving is ample and takes full containers of fluids. Love the interior design in the bottom freezer, which has dividers and 2 levels of storage. Delivered today, happy so far!!

We've had this Refrigerator for about a month now. And I think it's great. It has more room than our previous Refrigerator and we are happy with the freezer on the bottom. It's a little clunky closing the freezer but so far, so good.
