Reviews & Ratings

Great value for the price.
★★★★★
I mainly got this fridge for its matte black finish which shows no finger prints! I opted for the 2nd ice maker in the freezer since the door ice maker looked small but it keeps up pretty well. This ice maker never seems to jam which was a nice change from my last fridge. The upper freezer shelf pulls out which is a nice touch. My one complaint is that the shelves in the fridge arent the most configurable for tall items but the door shelves make up for all the tall jugs I normally put on the shelf. I wanted a solid fridge that wouldnt break the bank and I think this fit the bill.

Good upgrade from our side by side.
★★★★★
We had a side by side one and it is a brink of failing. It was original to the house so we thought of just buying a new one instead of repairing the old one. It took so many days of research and decided to get the GE one and ordered it online. Delivery went smoothly, they are very efficient. We got worried that it would not fit into our door but it did. We just got it today and hopefully this will last a long time.

I like the style, size and features of this fridge
★★★★★
We purchased this fridge 8 months ago and are very happy with it. The water filter is easy to change. No leaky mess! There is enough crisper drawer space. The clear shelving on the left door could be wider. It does fit water bottles nicely, but ketchup needs to be angled since it's not very wide( see photo). The water dispenser is nice and quicker than our previous one to refill water bottles quickly, but it does drip. We put a small piece of paper towel down to catch the drips.

Excellent purchase.
★★★★★
Prior to purchasing this refrigerator, we have spend about a month comparinf features available and pricing, and analising reviews and complaints from among 7 of the most known brands.

Good and bad so far....
★★★★
It's only been 2 days.... but the water/ice dispenser drips a little bit intermittently. Not too thrilled about that. I installed a the second icemaker in the bottom. When taking off the back cover, one of the screws was installed wrong. They completely missed the hole and the screw was forced into the bracket, making another hole! I was thinking that this was a "Friday Fridge." When I finished installing the icemaker, the screws were put in correctly..... it took me 10 seconds to do it right. Also, lots of extra tape, insulation, and plastic sticking out from seems and brackets. Putting in the second icemaker was easy as well as adjusting the level of the doors to match them up. It's much quieter than our old one.

The refrigerator/freezer is great.
★★★★
The refrigerator/freezer fills our every need. We replaced our 33year-old GE appliance (loved it) with exceptional features but realized it was not energy efficient. It was time, but we hated to see it go. It didn't go far — it is now in the basement.

Lots of room but poor design elements...
★★★
We bought this fridge as we needed something to accommodate our large family of 9. The fridge is great in this regard as there is a lot of room. My BIGGEST gripe with this fridge is that the tray under the water/ice dispenser does not have a grate in which to catch extra water.... SERIOUSLY? So now anytime I open the fridge door I receive a refreshing splash of water onto my legs and floor.... FUN! The other annoyance is the fact that you cannot "comfortably" fit a gallon of milk on the main shelves of the fridge when the bottom shelf is set to the lowest and the top shelf is set to the highest. The milk jug "does" fit, but only if you tilt it. Perhaps GE assumed that people would only put one or two jugs on the doors as they fit there, but we typically have 3 or 4 milk jugs in our fridge. Finally as others have pointed out, the protective plastic that comes on the fridge is a royal pain in the backside to remove... in fact there are still remnants that constantly remind me of this when I am not getting splashed from the water on the door. Come on GE you can do better than this!

Lemon

Had it for two days!!! Day one water pours out the bottom of the door with the icemaker. Day two the unit stops cooling and all my food has to be tossed

No Stars for GE Energy Star 27.7 cu ft FR DR Frig

Have no idea how this refrigerator gets 5 stars. We got a lemon! Ice machine doesn't work well, filters easily crack causing leaks in the refrigerator, and ice builds up on the exterior of the freezer and could damage your floor if you don't clear off the ice on the outside.

Noisy Fridge - Ice Accumulates

We have had this Refrigerator since Jan 2017. Noisy from day one! I spent lots of time researching different manufacturers not only for fridge but dishwasher, oven and microwave. I decided upon this fridge based off reviews I read and consumer reports. I had a tech look at fridge twice, once to determine why it was noisy and ice was accumulating around the ice maker seal and on front drawer in freezer. The tech made me feel as if I was crazy and the noise was natural. He said women are more sensitive to noise. I proceeded to tell him that I had not mentioned this to my husband because of the amount of time I spent researching however upon watching TV he asks, what is that noise, is that the new fridge? I explained to the tech that the meat drawer kept coming off the track and he made it seem like it was normal. I had to reproduce this to show him this is not normal for me to keep placing the tray back into place. He did some adjusting and said it was fine, worked for a few days but still comes off track to date. Tech determines that the icemaker door is warped and needs to replace, this is why ice is accumulating around door. Tech returns for second service to replace icemaker door and the machine is even louder but all he does it replace the door. The ice is accumulating around the icemaker door again to the point that it's hard to open. Everyone that visits notices the noise level of the fridge so apparently it's not normal. Luckily the extended warranty was purchased.

Beyond disappointed!!

We have only had this fridge 2 weeks. Freezer is already broke. Came home to a wet floor and ruined groceries. Beyond disappointed!!! :( Do not waste your money.

Best frig out there hands down
★★★★★
I've had this for 2 mo. now. I read all the reviews- noisy, frost prone, warm spots on door- LIES, ALL LIES. So much room, it's organized, shelves are sturdy & easy to position. Even cooling, solid build in every way. I like the slate look but it's easy to scratch so magnets need a cushion- they stick super hard to steal doors. It's quite, the watter dispenser works. Not sure about ice maker, I prefer old fashioned trays and rarely use dispensing option. Seems OK, I just checked, it works. I wanted something that won't die in 2 years, this is made in GE's new factory in US. Should last, I highly recommend it.

I really like the room in the fridge
★★★★
I am still getting used to a French door fridge. I really like the room in the fridge, but the freezer holds a lot less than a side by side. Although it isn't loud, the fan can be heard a lot more than my last one. At least the fan is working well; my Samsung kept freezing up and it was barely over 5 years old. I am hoping GE will be a great brand for our household.

Good fridge
★★★★
I won't show as a verified purchase because I purchased mine through Home Depot. I love this fridge. The 4 stars instead of 5 is because of little things, like the fact that the bottom drawer in the fridge doesn't remove easily. For me, that may be because it is in a tight space and I am unable to open both doors all the way back, but IDK. I never actually thought I needed theater LED lighting in a fridge, but I must confess it is actually nice and helpful. I saw the review about the panel and not being able to see it, but I don't have a problem at all with that. The filter is expensive, about $50, for the water and ice, which is about $15 more than my last Frigidaire. The fridge itself doesn't show fingerprints much at all, but I find myself wiping the handles at least once per day because they show everything. (Same for the matching oven and dishwasher.) The tab that you press against for water and ice stays spotted and is hard to clean. But I really like this fridge and would not hesitate to recommend it.

The exterior control panel on this is so annoying. It's almost impossible to read the touch labels without a flashlight!
★★
Sometimes its the little things that turn out to be the most annoying! With this unit- unfortunately youll need a flashlight to use the external control panel. We bought this refrigerator/freezer based on the french-doors, freezer door, price, size, color, interior compartments, external controls, etc., but theres one surprise that we weren't aware of that made this choice a very disappointing one... and its the control panel/dispenser on the outside of the freezer door. On that panel youll see that there is a little line lit-up just above one of the two of the selections (water & auto fill), but thats it! So if your kitchen is very well lit, or if you use a flashlight, then you can find the other 7 control selection/labels that are in the touch panel. Since the control labels are a dim, subtle off-white color, embedded into the clear plastic panel, they literally blend in with the Slate background making it extremely difficult, if not impossible (depending on the kitchen lighting or angle from which you may be looking) to see where you are suppose to touch for those 7 other controls! The French-door refrigerator is great, but the design of the exterior control panel make it difficult to use. Its disappointing that something so obviously user-unfriendly was over-looked by design. I just want to warn you, before you own it.
