I am not a fan of side by sides which we were donated when we moved to the new house and of course it didn't fit where the fridge is suppose to go. All of the top freezer's were only up to about 18 cubic ft. I checked into the french door style but I could see my 3 year old leaving one of the doors open, plus we only really wanted an ice maker. The final straw was that the one that was a french door like this one had a smaller capacity because of the water dispenser. So we chose this fridge. The fridge portion is fantastic, when putting food in this fridge from the side by side fridge which was a larger fridge (appearantly the side by side freezer side is larger) there is a ton more room in the new fridge while the side by side was near capacity. The freezer is where it loses its luster, the ice maker we knew was going to take up space, and they at least put a little tiny shelf for I have no idea what could fit, maybe OJ from concentrate? But after putting all the food items into the freezer, we noticed something that was missing that could have been quite useful.......a small shelf built into the door that could hold frozen mugs or give another spot to put say iceys or something. We did utilize both the bottom bin and the small pull out bin, couldn't fit anything on the small little shelf in front of the icemaker and ended up putting the frozen mugs into the side by side fridge that is now in the garage. I had to drop the excellent to avg. for the features because I had to balance out the almost poor on the freezer side with the excellent fridge section. This was a pricey fridge, about 200 dollars more for the extra cu ft of space for a similar fridge that could fit the space. I wanted to get the largest one that would fit, so overall I had to put good because of that, but a little disappointed in the freezer which brought value down to average, also would have liked a solid bin not the wire mesh bin, especially since the top is glass and or plastic, looks a little on the cheap.

I had high hopes for this refrigerator, after having a GE Profile before (larger capacity, but no longer available). Love the bottom freezer, love all the shelf space in the refrigerator considering its (smaller to me) size. HATE HATE HATE the produce drawers, they "catch" on a little hump, don't slide out smoothly, can't open all the way, and within one week of using the refrigerator, one had cracked. Within 10 days, the other drawer had broken. And by this time, we had started putting produce on the shelves to avoid the hassle of the produce drawers. My old GE Profile produce drawers were GREAT!!! I want smooth pulling drawers with no "humps" or "catches", and am returning this refrig ASAP. I will be test driving every single produce drawer in future refrigs before buying another one. Bummer, I really wanted this refrig!

circuit board troubles
from Chicago, IL, United States
Comments about GE Black Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:
My refrigerator will be 5 years old next month. I have had the circuit board replaced twice and the evac motor once. Seems to me that I shouldn't have all these failures with the frig not that old.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Had high hopes.....but
This refrigerator is attractive to look at but it's functionality is bad. The drawers cracked and do not open correctly now. That is really the only complaint on the refrigerator part. The freezer is awful! You have to break your back to get ice from the container and when you pull the freezer basket out (which is not easy) all the ice falls behind the basket. If it was not for the freezer I would recommend, but it just makes the whole package fail. Believe me, the freezer will frustrate and aggravate you on a daily basis so find something else.
Love a bottom freezer!
from Stow, OH, United States
So great to have the refrigerator at eye level! Can see and reach everything without stooping or kneeling to reach the back of the bottom shelf. Finally found a bottom freezer that would fit in my refrigerator space. Have much more space in this refrigerator than appears when empty. Can't figure why it wouldn't continue to be manufactured!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We had a GE fridge- freezer on the bottom, before and liked it o we bought a new one for our new home. the old one had a shelf that broke where the screws are on the side. We hope the new one won't have the same problem. The new one se ems to have trouble with the lower freezer rack pulling out all the way- the door has to be completely open, other than that we are happy with it
OK, not thrilled
from North Grafton, MA
Bought this refrigerator in Sept. 2013. Not at all thrilled. We couldn't find it in any store in our area but based on other models & the specs found online we decided to order this one. It is So noisy! I jump every time it starts up. Can't blame the ice maker b/c we haven't even used that yet. Can't believe a new refrigerator makes this much noise. The Freezer is much smaller than we thought it would be. It does not hold nearly as much as our last refrigerator did, which was a top mount. I will say that we like the refrigerator part itself though. We have a lot more room there. if you could change the style of the light to one that lies flat, that would be good. If we move, we won't buy this one again.
