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.

Very organized

1/5/2018

I love the slate color. I like the size of the freezer. The shelves and drawers in the refrigerator are great to keep food organized. Its a little but big for me being a one person household. I wish the compartments in the door were not as wide as they are. It would be good for a household with more people.

Looks nice but inside plastic is flimsy

12/19/2017

I just bought this and noticed the plastic sides on the shelf guides are all marked up and dented. It was difficult having it delivered so I dont want to go through having it exchanged as I had to take a day off work. I have a small kitchen and there are not many refrigerator available that will fit. I do like the glass shelves but this refrigerator replaces another GE that was very similar in size but its obviously cheaper made. It seems to run okay.

I Would Not Buy Again

12/14/2017

We bought this refrigerator 5 months ago for our second home. Weve had nothing but intermittent issues such as running very loud and warm inside fridge to the last one not running at all. Just wanted a basic refrigerator with no water dispenser or ice maker. Loved the slate color but this refrigerator has been nothing but a headache.

Nice

12/11/2017

Ive had the fridge for less than a week. So far so good. The slate color is nice the sides are black which it would be great if they were slate as well. It seems quiet and I love the big door shelves. Not sure why fridges dont come with egg compartments any more but I like the fridge. The installation people probably could have done a more through job getting the plastic off.

Beautiful Appliance

We are completely satisfied with our refrigerator. The slate finish is beautiful. We like the layout of the shelving and while we had seen some reviews prior to our purchase that indicated there might be loud compressor noise--this is not the case at all. It is very quiet.

Does not maintain cold/recommended temperatures

8/27/2017

This device has to be set at the lowest possible temperature to just barely get to the recommended temperature in the fridge and freezer. GE doesnt maintain service technicians in my location so the repair is farmed out to someone else. Its been over 2 weeks since the tech ordered the repair part. Very disappointed

I Like It More Than I Thought I Would

8/24/2017

This was not the frig that I wanted but it was the one that fit into the opening in my kitchen. I wanted a bottom freezer but had to settle for a top one. I love the outside of the frig color: slate but the inside is not on the same par with my former frig. That should be improved I would pay more for a nicer tempered glass inside.
