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 and 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.

Submitted by Saab95 - Needs to have the ability to lower the refrigerator temp to 31°, beer is not to be at 34° for best enjoyment, which I will be trying to adjust through customer service and maintenance, very disappointed. Other than that it is a great product.

Submitted by Charlie823 - 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!

Wonderful!

Submitted by JenRanHome - 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!

Big improvement!

Submitted by xcavado - 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

Submitted by 73Lanimoo - 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.

Top fridge is so much better than top freezer.

Submitted by roverhi - 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.

Great GE Model....

Submitted by Millbrook - Not an over sized refrigerator, but has plenty of room for two people's use. Switched from top freezer to bottom freezer style and that is a plus. Notice I must use more conservative buying for the freezer,but that's probably a good thing.

great door storage

Submitted by parmaker - We had a 21 cu ft refrigeratorwith a top freezer for almost 20 years. we wanted to replace it since while still working we knew it was coming to the end of its useful life. We have limited space available in which to put a refrigerator. The GE is narrower but deeper than what we had. We love the slate color and the bottom freezer.. With all the door storage the inside of the box looks almost empty, The door storage frees up so much interior space.

Nice to look at. Convenient.

Submitted by msvee71 - The refrigerator lighting seems shadowy and inadequate. Also, the lowest temperature available for the fridge is 34 deg but it only registers on a thermometer to 39...a safe temperature but not good for drinks. The features are nice though. We love the bottom freezer drawer and the slim profile. It fit perfectly in our space. If it weren't for the refrigerator temp, I'd rate it nearly 5 stars. The cooling effect is the reason we have a fridge though.

LOVE THIS FRIDGE

Submitted by mikmik9602 - I got this fridge for my Christmas Present this year from my husband and son. My nanny had a fridge like this one when I was growing up. I've always wanted one and now, I have it. I love this fridge!! It's so roomy, big enough for my family. I love how the light kind of flicks on like a light switch (goofy I know but, it warms my heart for some reason). I also have lots of room for ice cream in the freezer. This is a winner for sure!

Quality refrigerator

Submitted by ThomKat - Perfect size for 1-4 person household. The factory default settings are on point for the refrigerator & freezer. The interior is spacious & the shelves are spaced nicely for a variety of storage sizes. The bins are a good size & slide smoothly. The freezer has a sliding drawer & a fairly moderate sized bin. The ice maker works very well & makes quite a lot of ice. The refrigerator runs quietly & efficiently. The exterior surface is nice & clean. Overall very pleased with this refrigerator/freezer quality.

Fridge is great; freezer drawer not so much.

Submitted by XO5P9 - The refrigerator is great. Roomy; convenient, easy-to-use layout. The freezer drawer is just the opposite. Poor layout, compartments are too deep. Items get lost/buried in the bottom.

GE Fridge

Submitted by Betty71 - Thus far I am really liking the new Fridge; love the Slate color, sleek looking. The space inside is awesome especially enjoying the large side compartments. The ice maker is good addition and the set up was easy. The ice maker can be a little loud but hasn't been a deterrent for us. Love that if you leave the door open too long it will ding at you as reminder to close the door. So far, pleased with this product!

Noisey Fridge

Submitted by RRTRHR - The refrigerator looks nice, but is noisey, after running it lets out a buzzing screech, then goes quiet. Very disappointing for a fridge Ive had for a week. Not something I would recommend at this time. I have to place a service call...did I mention its been in my home for 1 week. Yikes GE, you've done better. My old GE's lasted for many years.
