We love the look and interior space provided by this refrigerator; however, the icemaker is INCREDIBLY slow. This model even has a button for "Quick Ice, " which we have on all of the time, still, we are constantly running out of ice and have to wait, sometimes hours, for a few cubes to mainfest themselves for use. I don't believe that we use ice at a quicker rate than any other three-person family. I have to say that slow ice production is the ONLY aspect for which we have an issue. Great refrigerator, bad icemaker.

We replaced all of our GE appliances with updated GE appliances ~8 months ago â€¦ While all have disappointed us, this refrigerator less so. We have not had any reliability issues with this refrigerator but, we find one aspect of â€˜usingâ€™ this appliance a source of frustration. The source of this frustration is that the backlighting for the water/ice controls is around the â€˜edgeâ€™ of the buttons, not behind the lettering of the buttons themselves. So, guess what ? While this is not an issue during the day so long as you have a reasonable amount of natural lighting in the kitchen, just try to read those labels during the early morning or evening hours â€¦ You canâ€™t. The bright white backlighting around the edge of the buttons obscures your vision when trying to read the button labels. How this flaw could have possibly not been noticed during the design phase is beyond me. This problem with either incorrect or lack of proper backlighting is common in one form or another across all of the appliances we purchased. With the range and microwave, the lettering of all pad controls is gray on a black background, with â€˜noâ€™ back lighting ! You can see this for yourself in the appliance photos on this site, and zooming in makes it even more apparent. The natural lighting within our kitchen area is well within the range of normal but, because of the lack of contrast between the lettering and the background itâ€™s necessary to turn on additional lights #overhead kitchen light, microwave above the stove, etc.# just to be able to â€˜see/readâ€™ the controls. You almost need a flashlight to use the controls, and Iâ€™m exaggerating only slightly. To us, this is a design blunder. Another disappointment is that the while the control backlighting on the refrigerator is white, the temperature/clock/timer lighting on the stove and microwave is greenish. All are Profile appliances, all purchased new and all purchased at the same time. I understand designs change over time but, putting out a â€˜currentâ€™ line of appliances #e.g. Profile# with mixed lighting shows lack of attention to detail. On the plus side, we noticed the crisper drawer has fewer fragile plastic parts as compared to the previous model of this refrigerator, which is a good thing because the crisper drawer in the refrigerator we replaced broke by the 2nd or 3rd year, and of course replacing it would have been prohibitively expensive and the replacement drawer would almost certainly have broken in the same place, anyway, so we lived with it. The new design is just a bit less convenient but seems to be less prone to breaking. I choose reliability over convenience. Also on the plus side, I must say the Ice Maker in the Profile Artica refrigerators seems to be highly reliable, or at least it was in the one we replaced and in this one so far. Weâ€™ve never had one problem, and it gets used a lot ! Perhaps thatâ€™s the key â€¦ Frequent use. Overall, weâ€™re fairly pleased with this refrigerator but, the GE Engineers, Human Factors and Quality Control folks should spend more time with these units in the â€˜realâ€™ world and less time in the lab.

great features and lighting
By Stephen J
from Wesley Chapel, FL, United States
I bought it two months ago and I am glad I did .We are really enjoying our new GE refrigerator .
from Olympia, WA, United States
Quiet compared to the Amana we replaced. Our first side-by-side. Like the inside lighting but the narrow shelving we need to get used to. Don't care for the one quick access shelf right now. Nice clean & sleek features. Have yet to hook up the water/ice maker.
Good price for the features offered.
from Cape Cod, MA, United States
Required a new fridge immediately. This GE Profile had all the features we were looking for and the price was reasonable.
Freezer Drawers to narrow, fall off track
from Clovis, CA (near Fresno)
Extremely disapointed in freezer usability; Freezer Drawers are too narrow and fall off track all the time and drop down. Repairman can't fix because new drawers would be the same width.and he doesn't want to try bending them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
