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.

Great value

Joyce girl 11/17/2020

Love the no fingerprint finish and color. Ample room even for a 21 cubic size in refrigerator as well as freezer. Pretty and clean lines inside. Ice maker included. I do feel it runs a little louder than expected but I can live with that.

Hasn't worked since day1.

AB13 11/8/2020

I spent a considerable amount of time researching a refrigerator for my smal kitchen. I have space constraints and was unable to find a refrigerator with the preferred options. However, I thought I would be satisfied with this model and was excited to get it. Well, the Covid related delay was 4 months. And after enduring that delay, I received the appliance only to find that the refrigerator didn't cool at ALL. The freezer works but not the refrigerator. Had a GE repair person (and waited over a week to get him), and learned there's a faulty part. Guess what? Another delay getting it. It's now November and the refrigerator I ordered in May still isn't usable. Beyond dissatisfied.

kwrolson 10/26/2020

I love that there are not covers over the shelves in the door. Those covers were always annoying and seemed unnecessary. This refrigerator is perfect for a single person or a couple. It is not overly large but has plenty of space for me. I love the freezer on the bottom!

AlainaC 9/17/2020

The fridge is a little smaller in size but excellent for us. Love the ice maker on the inside because it offers more storage and bigger shelves. Ice makers on the exterior always have those small condiment size shelves. Love the gray tone color and how printless it is. I also love that I have an option of which side I want the handle on.

Jeanarie 7/23/2020

So far we are pleased with our refrigerator. It has more room than our last one. Shelves are large and the ones on the door hold a lot. The freezer holds more than I thought it would. Not using the ice maker so I cannot comment on that. Over all very happy with it.

I love the new slate color. It's a tiny bit slimmer and taller and works perfectly in my kitchen. Shop your local appliance stores first. I got it for $500 less than Home Depot! Free delivery and they service what they sell most of the time. I did purchase an extended warranty also.

I really like the fact that the control is in temperature not simply numbers 1-whatever. The door "shelves" are deep enough for gallon jugs. Really like the shelf in the freezer dept and the ice maker is very fast. The previous bottom freezer fridge I owned was nowhere near the ease of access to the freezer compartment. It had a door with fixed top shelf and slide out metal basket. LOVE the color!

JenRanHome 4/14/2020

We had never had a refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom before but we really like this model. We have an older home so a larger refrigerator wasn't an option for us. Now, when I'm putting the groceries away I don't have to bend over or squat down to see what's on the bottom shelf. And seeing what's in the freezer is a breeze because you just look down in the bin. Very happy we purchased this model!

xcavado 4/8/2020

Our 20-something year old GE was still working, but we wanted a bottom freezer model. I'm tall, and finding things on the bottom shelves of the old fridge was becoming challenging as I age. There's limited space in the "surround", so it was tough to find a bottom freezer model with the features we wanted that fit. This model is a big update from the old one, and we've enjoyed it a lot since we got it. Now I finf things without a problem.

The Perfect Fit

73Lanimoo 3/31/2020

I had a French door model that no longer fit in my new kitchen, so I went on the hunt for a bottom drawer model that worked in my new space. This refrigerator fits perfectly and looks so classy in my new kitchen. The slate keeps fingerprints off and it is very roomy. My only wish was for the crisper drawers to be as wide in the back as they are in front. They're pretty small compared to what they look like they should be.

roverhi 3/30/2020

The only thing I'd change is the ice tray. Would like it to be smaller, shorter front to back, as it contains way more ice than we'll use at one time and would rather have freezer space.
