Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Refrigerator runs very loud 24/7 This is the 2nd unit I had delivered. 1st refrigerator did not have condenser fan plugged in. Then Tech said it needs a new fan. A new fan was connected and after 24 hours temp in freezer and refrigerator rose and all my food had to be thrown out. I have refrigerator number 2 now for 48 hours, it is keeping cold, but never stops running and is so loud you can hear it from another room. I will wait another day then call GE to have a Tech. come out. These Refrigerators are assembled in Louisville, KY. which I was very happy to hear until I owned one. My last GE frig which I sold was 11 years old and ran quiet and kept all my food cold. My wife wanted stainless steel, not sleepless nights for a noisy refrigerator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good features large adaptable stoge area This unit appears to have two inherent problems. 1) ice and frost builup on the inside of the upper area of the sliding freezer door just beyond gasket. 2) Ice occasionally freezes together in top ofg the upper ice maker storage bucket, prventing further production of ice while the bucket empties during use from the outer dispenser. (Very annoying) If these are correctable, I weould appreciate someone contacting me. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our large family of 7 I chose this refridgerator over a Samsung for a few reasons. This is our 1st refridgerator purchase in 20 years of marriage so I was a little overwhelmed with choices. Wanted to upgrade our kitchen to Stainless. We always purchased houses which included a refridgerators. We went from side by sides which we have had in our last 3 homes so I was nervous about the design and function differences. I picked this fridge due to the fact that the icemaker is in the door and not taking up room in the fridge area like most of the french door fridges I looked at. I didn't like to see the ice maker in the fridge are at all. The ice makers that are in the doors are small in all makes and models I looked at so I chose this particular model because it has a 2nd ice maker in the freezer to accomodate our family of 7 plus guests. This model is beautiful to look at and instantly updated our kitchen with a more modern feel. It has a LOT more room than the side by sides! You can see all of your food and spread it out so it isn't crammed in a small square on each shelf like side by sides. The lighting is very bright. The ice and water dispenser is great! It doesn't fly all over the floor like some of my friends' fancy stainless fridges. It does show some fingerprints but not nearly as bad as many I touched. I purposefully rubbed my fingers and hands on it in the store to check since we have 5 children 13 and under. I also purchased a stainless GE microwave and toaster to match. I am going to purchase a GE dishwasher in the next 6 months to complete the new look in our kitchen. I also feel good about purchasing American made products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from product has great features I love the look of the refrigerator and the space is great. I think is it too loud. It actually woke me up during the night. I am waiting for a service rep to install a noise kit this month. I love the space in the freezer and the ability to get ice from the inside of the freezer as well as on the outside of the frige. I have had the refrigerator since the end of December 2012 and other than it being loud I have had no problems.
