PSB42YSXSS 3.2 5 5 5
Breaks down multiple times Purchased this about 2.5 years ago and 3 months ago, freezer was not cooling (temp stays at about 20 degrees when it should be at 0). This was when my nightmare began. The first issue was a broken fan which was replaced. Then it still wasn't working and the next service call, it was the compressor. Once that was fixed it worked for about 1.5 months and the same issue again. This time the GE technician said it was the pipes which was leaking freon. He ordered about 4 separated components and spent 4 hours with another technician in replacing that. After they left , it is still not cooling. I'm not sure what they will tell me is wrong this time...the saga continues. May 28, 2013
Great Product I have the PSB42YSXSS Refrigerator and I love it! It has a huge storage area, which comes in handy when we entertain or have dinner parties! April 12, 2013
Not recommended We have had this refridgerator for just over a year. IWe experienced fan issues as soon as it was installed. Refridergerator doesn't keep cold. Finally the fan and main board were replaced. 6 months later same problem again! Just had the fan and board replaced again two days ago. It still has temp fluctuations from 37 degrees to 58 degrees. We need to constantly keep the venting hood open to try and keep it cool, Very disappointed. April 6, 2013
Buying it again I remodeled my kitchen to help sell our home. I used all GE profile stainless appliances but the star was the 42" built-in refrigerator. It sold the house! We are building our new home and I am in the process of buying this refrigerator again! August 30, 2012
Nice fridge, slow ice maker I have a big family, hence the need for a big refrigerator. the only drawback it has is the ice maker cannot keep up with a family of 6. I leave it on "quick ice" all the time. Most of the time there is ice available, but not always. August 21, 2012
