Rated 3 out of 5 by from An OK refrigerator for its size Unfortunately, my kitchen was designed 30 years ago, leaving a limited space for a refrigerator/freezer. At the time, I had an ordinary top freezer model, around 19 cu.ft. When that broke after quite some time, I switched to this side-by-side model which is adequate and fit into the space. Unfortunately,I have a cabinet above and drawers next to the refrigerator, so I am totally limited. I would love a French door model or a larger side-by-side, higher quality, but there are none available. Tomorrow I will receive my third iteration of this exact same refrigerator. This one lasted ten years. It's adequate. Can't believe it comes in black but not stainless steel. It's OK but nothing special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small with lots of room i needed a refig that would fit in a 32" wide opening and this was the only side by side i could find. it turns out that its a nice one w/plenty of room. the only minor problem is the ice maker is a little loud when its not full

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality appliance Within 6 mo the water filter needed replacement and the part was no longer available. The recommended alternate filter could not be inserted (after a cost of $50). After 3 years the icemaker quit working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a replacement fridge for the one I had for 13 yrs which was a GE and is still working. made the old one a shop fridge and new one to go with the new flooring I had done. I only use GE appliances. They are dependable and long lasting.
