Refrigerator does its basic job very well, no repairs in few years I have owned it, however the cold water dispenser does not dispense nearly enough cold water - it should have a reservoir to hold cold water, not just tubing coiled up inside the fridge - I do have this plugged into an RCA surge protector made for refrigerators however, as I have been told the modern circuitry in today's fridges tends to get fried from small surges in our electrical supply.
We bought a GE Profile refrigerator and were scared of any refrigerator because most had a bad name, and particularly we had heard negatives of GE. HOWEVER, several months in (less than 6 months to be exact) the fridge is holding up and keeping things cool, making ice and water appropriately which is why SO FAR I would recommend GE refrigerator. We have model GFE28GYNBFS which is not super flashy but is sleek looking and does the functions we need! Also large capacity but not crazy where we can’t reach the back.

I've owned the GE Bottom side by side freezer for one year. It's quiet, maintains the set temperature, and I can control how often the ice maker cycles. The three shelves including one split shelf allows me to view most items at a glance. I especially like that I can use either two vegetable drawers or use one for vegetables and one for fruit. Included is a narrow meat, cheese drawer, too. The side doors are roomy for condiments, butter, salad dressings, etc. Although I can store soda cans on the bottom door shelf, I sometimes can't view, and tend to forget about the sodas because the shelf sits slightly behind the other door shelving. The bottom freezer is divided into two large bins, an ice maker tray, and a pull out top shelf. I find it very roomy. My only concern is that the stainless exterior easily shows fingerprints and needs to be wiped down frequently. However, I'm basically pleased with the refrigerator in general.
My coverage I had at the time I had a refrigerator when I had a home and my insurance through Farmer’s Insurance at that time covered my parts and labor on my refrigerator 100%. Did not cost me that much more to have it covered through my Insurance which covered me on my liability Insurance on my truck at the time too and did not have to pay much more to have personal property insurance coverage on my refrigerator too. Just a few dollars more every month with my liability insurance every month too. That’s what I did every month too when I renewed my liability insurance coverage on my truck every month too and right now I don’t need to have until I buy another home too which I am preparing to do again as soon as I am able to find again too.
It is a good side by side freezer & refrigerator. The freezer is smaller than we would like and the worse part is the noisy icemaker. It is not new maybe 6 years old. The freezer does what it is suppose to do and keep things frozen the refrigerator half has nice separate vegetable bin and meat/cheese bin. The convenience of the milk on the door and other bottles on the door shelves is convenient and gives more shelf storage in the refrig part.
Five year system warranty - died at 6. It broke many times over the years that needed to be fixed - touch screen, evaporator fan, many other issues. It finally had a freon system leak which finally killed it. Not happy. Oh, and did I mention that it requires a very expensive proprietary water filter.
Do not buy anything Café from GE! We are living in a $1.1M brand new home, it came stocked with a Café fridge, microwave, oven & dishwasher. 3 out of the 4 have broken within 12 months!! We hardly even use our appliances. They are difficult to work with and get ahold of. When they scheduled our appliance repairs they put us with HORRIBLE third party companies. We were lucky if they ever even showed up. We will NEVER recommend or buy from GE again.
I Purchased in May 2020 and May 2021 ice was building up inside the Fresh Food section freezing my vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese, anything in the drawers. A repair man was sent by GE warranty service and he defrosted the ice with a steam heat gun and put temperature setting on 36 (I had turned to 34 because it was not cooling inside as it should due to the ice buildup). In less than a week it was iced up again and when I called GE warranty again I was told I had to now go through my extended warranty i had purchased with Lowe's! Could not believe they would not even come back and fix what they did not fix the first time.
Now I am being told by the ext warranty guy I need new door seals/gaskets! He is due to replace on July 22nd and personally I don't think this will work either. GE offered me a "discounted price" on a replacment with was only a few hundred dollars less than what I orginally paid a year ago. I am 68 years old and had not planned on buying another refrigerator in a year. Worst product ever. Hopefully my oven and microwave that I purchased at same time will last at least 10 years, which is the life expectancy of a refrigerator. Do yourself a favor and buy a different brand.
I bought a GE refrigerator in March 2021. The compressor broke in June 2021. GE sent 2 service people twice to diagnose the problem, they order parts and there was back orders in parts. We are in July and is still not fixed and GE is not willing to exchange the refrigerator. Every time I call their customer line it takes over an hour or more to get a person. It’s hard to support American products when they lack any decent customer service. I do not recommend in buying GE products based in their customer service.
Will not cool or freeze. Bought in November for our kitchen remodeling. Installed this past week and it will not cool or freeze. Called GE and was told I would receive a call from a repair person in about 48 hours to schedule someone to come to look at it. It is a brand new fridge, never used and it does not work.
