I bought this back in July and have used it for a few months. It is a great basic fridge with plenty of storage. I have yet to figure out how to adjust the shelves, but I know they are adjustable. I opted to not have an ice maker put in but I do know it is compatible with an ice maker add on. One day I might do that. I am fine with just making my own ice for now. Whenever you buy it, make sure whatever way the door swings, it opens a little past 90 degrees otherwise the drawer closest to the door may not open all the way. Minor detail that isn't mentioned in the specs when buying. I love the fact that I have the side storage that can fit a full gallon of milk and some standing bottles of wine. The inside is also easy to clean and wipe down if anything spills thanks to the shelving (versus the typical wire racks). I read on some other sites that people were complaining about noise...I haven't had the luxury of experiencing a ton of fridges and this one doesn't annoy me with sound. I have an extremely sensitive ear with noise and I have never noticed it enough to complain or go as far as return it. Overall this product is really great for the price. GE is a trusted brand in home appliances which makes decisions easier for me when buying. My old dishwasher is about 15 years old and still running like new, it is GE as well. Hoping to get many many years out of this fridge.

FINISH: The finish on this appliance is beautiful. It will look great with a lot of different color schemes & doesn't show fingerprints. The handle *does* show fingerprints but it's small and easy to wipe! STORAGE: I was worried about this appliance not having enough room since our last refrigerator had larger square footage. No problem there. The interior design is great, leaving room for plenty of food. One nice thing: if you forget and leave the butter door open (which I always do), you can still close the refrigerator door. We didn't get the ice maker. The ice cube holder is quite small, only holding 1 1/2 ice cube trays of ice. LIGHTING: The refrigerator is very well lit. The freezer has no interior light. I like this because I don't wake up at night when I grab something! THE MAJOR PROBLEM: There is only one temperature dial for both the refrigerator and the freezer. The unit we purchased had a faulty mechanism in the dial (the compressor, I think?). When it arrived, our choice was: own a freezer/freezer or a refrigerator/refrigerator. REPAIR MEN: GE's repairmen were speedy, nice, and helpful - fixing the problem - but only so far. We are now able to make ice in the freezer without freezing the vegetables, milk, etc. in the refrigerator. But even on the highest setting ice cream never freezes solid & the blue ice pads I rely on for sports injuries won't freeze at all. They remain in the gel form. The nice GE repairmen told me that if you want more control over temperature, you need to buy a more expensive unit that has separate dials for the refrigerator and freezer. Even when these one-dial units are functioning perfectly, there will be an area in the top-back of the refrigerator where things will freeze. One small area like that would be no problem for us, *if* the freezer truly froze. But it doesn't. OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: We've chosen to stick with this unit because of the price and the hassle of replacing it. If we had it to do all over again, we would get the larger version with two dials..

Roomy and cold!
from Fraser, MI United States
Fits nice in our small kitchen. Having large door shelves has been great for the grandchildren's drinks! Quiet and cold. Love it!
The refrigerator and freezer store lots of food.

I bought this Refrigerator about a month ago. I am I did because it stores lots of food and runs so quiet.
So far so good!

Our small refrigerator wentry down. We were looking for one that was a little bigger and the right price. You did it.

I bought this GE refrigerator mainly because it fits the my kitchen refrigerator alcove. I wanted another GE model, a white one, but the internal shelving has a bad step design, so this is the next best one. Although it has a stylish stainless facade, but I do not like the vinyl side finish. The capacity is a bit smaller than my last refrigerator, and it does not have a egg carton on the door. But the worst issue its noise. I read the reviews on line after the purchase that this is a noisy refrigerator, but I did not think it can be this noisy since my last refrigerator was 26 years old and it was not noisy, so how bad can the current technology and manufacturing be. Boy I was wrong. It is not just a low hum, it has a constant squeaky axle turning noise. I feel it will break down soon, or within a few years unlike my last one which lasted 26 years. Yeah, this refrigerator is made in America and I felt GE is a good safe brand to go with, but so much for the poor quality that I can not be proud of.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
it fits the space that i wanted

this unit was just installed today, cannot give an opinion
Interior design is practical and clean-up seems easy.
