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

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.

The fridge Loog good but limited features

Zullus 4/18/2021

The freezer space is not as large as expected, based on the size of the fridge. The fridge also keeps knocking out the breaker.

cheaply made

rmb20 1/19/2021

We've had this product for a few months now and are not happy with it. The veggie drawers are nice and big, but when you fill them they're hard to pull out. I'm afraid they're going to break. The self in the freezer falls down when the ice maker tray gets full or when there is weight on the shelf. The pegs going into the side of the freezer are too short to support the shelf. It really doesn't do any good to have a large freezer when you can't put things on the top shelf. We used to have a bottom freezer refrigerator, but it died during COVID and the only one that would fit in our kitchen was this one.

Disappointed

skdn 9/17/2020

I had to purchase because of the size of my existing space. I understand this is not the top line but for the price I paid it should still be better quality. There is no light in the freezer. It freezes food on the top back shelf. I do not care for the shut off for the ice maker. Most fisappoi n yed with the fact it freezes food.

Amazing refrigerator. no regrets!!!

jcma 8/15/2020

Excellent equipment, for a while we had a smaller refrigerator. me and my wife were going crazy because we had to make more trips for groceries that we wanted plus with all this COVID-19 issue it just wasn't safe. So we decided to go shop in a store nearby, instantly as soon as we looked at this one we knew this was it. Let me tell you, plenty of space in the shelves and drawers, freezer is huge plus we don't have to worry about ice trays because the ice maker works great. stainless steel gives it a great look and overall it's a kitchen upgrade. Very happy with the purchase and looking forward for it lasting a good while.

HUNK OF JUNK - POORLY DESIGNED

disgusted and disappointe 5/22/2020

Temp controls? joke - only one! so if you turn it high for the freezer, you also freeze almost anything in the refrigerator part. And where is the temp control.....up front but it runs down the middle of the top shelf, making it impossible at times to slide anything taller than a butter tub or yogurt container to the other side. One place to put a tall drink pitcher ....on the door. Can't put it on the top shelf in the fridge because, if you lower the shelf to hold the pitcher or even a gallon of milk, you lose space on the second shelf. I've talked to GE about it and they don't care...no wonder they aren't selling it anymore. Now, after 40 years of GE products, I am afraid to purchase another one.

GIE21 5/20/2020

I was so glad I could change the direction the door opens on this fridge. The stainless steel on the outside of the fridge is wonderful because it's easy to clean and it looks nice.

average refrigerator

Albedor 1/21/2020

This model was the only one that would fit the space available. It is energy-efficient but has only standard features, like the icemaker, which works ok. No light in the freezer is annoying.

Hugh FREEZER!!!!!!

Cold Colder Coldest 12/18/2019

Yes, the freezer does not have a light, but who cares because you could literally land a plane in it!! The crispers are oversized and that's what I needed because I eat lots of fresh food. The drivers were on time, polite and courteous. I don't use the ice maker but this fridge is quiet as a church mouse. I keep a thermometer in the refrigerator, so I can confirm that the temp is right on point. I read a lot of reviews on this fridge before I purchased it and what most consumers didn't like, was not a deal breaker for me. It's a beautiful fridge and all my food is cold. Model # GIE21GSHESS. I think this is worth the money .

Do not buy

juma 9/24/2019

This refrigerator came when I built my home. I moved in in March 2019 and about two months later I started seeing rust spots on the refrigerator. I contacted GE and they state that the warranty doesn't cover it. There is no way I should be having rust spots on a brand new refrigerator. The ice maker is having issue, I don't even get a full tray and it takes forever to produce ice.
