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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Horrible customer service

Submitted by kma147 - 5/3/2021

Do not order this refrigerator if you want the ice maker installed. Refrigerator and ice maker was ordered my a Home Depot associate with the incorrect ice maker. Delivery team took back incorrect ice maker and apparently the mounting kit. Correct ice maker was ordered by GE, but apparently the mounting kit does not come with the ice maker install kit and it is missing. Now GE won't correct the problem, they will not send me another ice maker, since the one I have now is the correct one, and can't send me the mounting kit without the ice maker!

Submitted by Red head 83 - 5/2/2021

I like the configuration of the top very much. There is plenty of to. Not too fond of the configuration of the freezer. Drawers and basket make it hard to find things because you have to stack things on top of each other. I liked my older model much better.

Submitted by BubbaJePH - 4/14/2021

We researched several fridges. Consumer Report gave this fridge very high ratings.We had a good fridge but the wife wanted a bottom freezer. We only had it three weeks now. So far so good. It is a little louder than the fridge we replaced. The ice maker works great.

GE fridge

Submitted by S J L55 - 3/20/2021

There are limited options for refrigerators with a bottom freezer in this width. The refrigerator is a good size and good shelving. The freezer is very small and not easy to access drawers. It's a little noisy too.

Great Fridge

Submitted by JJ5000 - 1/13/2021

I had a similar one a few years before when I lived in my old apartment. Later I sold it and moved to a new apartment, but it had an old style with freezer on top. I finally got this freezer bottom style. It's well lit and roomy inside and I like the shelves are all transparent so I can see anything if falls to inside the shelves, it saves my back and knees. Very happy with my purchase and hope to have this fridge for many years to come.

Missing the bells and whistles

Submitted by C2It - 1/6/2021

We like the fridge overall as it holds a lot for only a 30" compared to our previous one. However I'm disappointed that GE does not provide internal water dispenser for 30" and also has no butter tray on the door which we have been used to for many years. I also find the motor is a bit loud for a brand new fridge.

We are remodeling an old farmhouse and space is limited. Our GE refrigerator not only looks great but fits perfectly. I'd give a 5 star rating but I wish it had more freezer space, and for some reason our refrigerator door needs an extra good push to get it to close.

Submitted by phd911 - 10/25/2020

So far we love this refrigerator! It looks fantastic and has lots of room inside. The sliding snack drawer is a great feature for allowing you to alter the space below it for your needs. Reversing the door was also very easy to do. Everything was taped and packaged well to prevent shifting and damage to the unit. Love the compartments and slide out bins in the freezer for organizing foods.
