We've had our refrigerator for about 3 weeks now. I didn't have the manual so I went to GE's website and downloaded it. The first thing I noticed was that the ice maker was taking way too long to make ice. Then we realized that my husband missed a step in the set-up. Rule of thumb: Read all the instructions first before attempting to use a sophisticated refrigerator! We are extremely happy and satisfied with this appliance's functionality. The water is always cold when dispensed and the ice it makes comes out perfectly all the time. The ice crusher has not give us any issues either. One thing that is not really an issue with adults, but it may be with small children is that when you dispense water into a glass, a small drip always occurs. An adult can see this and avoid the water running down the front of the refrigerator by simply removing the glass slowly from the dispenser, but my 4 year old grandson doesn't quite care and just runs away with the glass which causes the drip. No biggie. The inside is HUGE! We love how the shelves can be re-positioned and the right-middle shelve can be shortened! The lighting system inside is awesome! When you open the refrigerator doors, the lights go from dim to bright in about 8 seconds. No more opening the refrigerator in the middle of the night and having a bright light on your sleepy eyes! We love the stainless-steel on the entire refrigerator! It's magnificent! I purchased the cleaner and it cleans like a dream and it doesn't require any kind of buffing! We couldn't have purchased a better one! Looking forward to many years of use and enjoyment out of this refrigerator.

We are a two adult household, retired but very active. We purchased this refrigerator in December 2011 to replace an old side-by-side and received numerous compliments on it. Within the first few months, we had multiple service calls because the water stopped working. Apparently, the waterline is prone to freezing due to its close proximity to the freezer. In addition to the water issues, we found the layout to be inefficient. The water filter and ice maker take up valuable refrigerator space. When the shelves are adjusted to accommodate tall items such as milk and juice, there is not enough room between the remaining shelves to hold much more than a casserole dish. In addition, there is a bar at the front of the shelf that drops down about 3/4â€�. I assume it is intend to make the slide-out feature easier but it further reduces the overall shelf height. In a pinch, the Quickspace shelf helps but accessing items behind and on the shelf above is awkward. The two gallon size door bins will hold gallon containers but with the Clearlook butter bin also in place, you canâ€™t space them far enough apart to get large items in/out of both bins. I was able to gain the necessary space by removing the Clearlook bin. Ice production was adequate for just us, but I did keep backup ice in the freezer to supplement during the excessive summer heat and for company.

Love the functionality of the refrigerator. Very spacious. The ice maker works wonderfully. I have two issues with my refrigerator. One is that i have no dispenser arm giving no way to trigger water or ice to come out. The other is that the water hose was completely closed as well. Still not sure what to do about missing dispenser arm.

Food freezes in the binds and the middle shelf and enough shelves on door.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Atlanta, GA, United States
This is a great refrigerator for cooks. It's nice to have so many options to configure the inside to fit my needs. And it looks amazing in my kitchen!
from Baldwinsville, NY
I love it!
Great look and love the French doors! We save money by not having to buy bottled water; we now use the filtered water in the door of each fridge. It saves us space in the kitchens and they work great! I would recommend this product.
Nice looking Fridge!
from Milwaukee, WI
We got the complete cafÃ© series for our kitchen and picked this fridge mostly because I like the look of bottom freezer better. 1 year after the fridge still look and operate like brand new, I like the bip bip reminder that goes off when door is not close as Iâ€™m a big offender. Thereâ€™s plenty of space and compartments, Iâ€™m amazed at how much food I can store in there! Itâ€™s easy to clean too, so I donâ€™t mind kids putting their fingerprints on it. I only wish the water filter was cheaper.
Good features, but less room than I thought
from Washington, DC
Having read the reviews here I agree that it is hard to find space on the door for milk, wine/soda bottles, etc. We tried a few configurations and then took off the dairy bin on the door completely. Exterior dispensers automatic on and off light is nice, and love the gradual increase in light brightness on the interior. Overall very happy.
