Bought this after most review sites highly praised it and most reviews (like this one) liked it. No matter where you look you will always find someone who isn't completely satisfied. First off, check your doorway dimensions. Even if you take the main doors off this beast it is still 30.5" deep. Older doorways might be tight to move it through. I was able to take off the freezer door tracks (8 mini-bolts/screws) and it brought it back down to 29.25". The delivery guy wouldn't do it so it sat in my living room until I figured that part out myself. It assembles pretty easily. The directions are pretty straight forward, just follow the book (but you have to follow them backwards as there are no assembly instructions only dis-assembly instructions). You can do it with 1 person but there are a few steps that make it a LOT easier with 2. The doors aren't actually set to level at the top as it was explained to me by the installer that the Left door is built about 1/8-1/4" taller to factor in sag over time since the water/ice maker/dispenser is built into that one. Makes sense but you can adjust it yourself to make them even. The overall appearance of this monster is beautiful. It is a shiny/polished stainless steel front. The side panels state that they are a slate/dark grey but to me they actually look more dark chocolate but it could be the lighting in the room. No magnets will stick on the front due to the high nickel count of this stainless steel but they do stick to the sides. The doors open and close very heavy. Gone are the days of the thin doors. They are actually pretty loud (no whisper action here) when they close but that is mainly due to the left door seal that expands/contracts as the door opens. Be warned: they will wake a sleeping baby or the family dog if you open them during a late night raid of the fridge. The interior lighting is wonderful. It 'warms' up after a second once the door(s) are opened. Not super bright until they all warm up. Most other fridges in this class seem to only have overhead or back lighting which makes a lot of the food shadowed and dark. Not this baby. Theater lighting all the way around provides a clear view of everything inside. The door shevles are a little different. They don't quite fit 'American' food. I wonder if that falls under the European influence. The one flip up door shelf would be perfect for a dozen eggs, if they only came in 10 instead of 12, deep enough but not wide enough for the carton. Some of the others on the Left door are considerably smaller due to the ice maker so they get to catch nic-naks (perfect for mini-wine bottles). You will need to re-adust them a few times until you can find the best configuration for your usage. The interior shelves are very deep. Upgrading from a 18cu. ft. model to this model makes it look like I don't have any food in the fridge. The shelves are adjustable. The right rear top shelf items seemed to be a little colder than the rest of the items in the fridge so be warned. The interior drawers are spacious BUT you have to have both doors open to access them. Kind of a bummer. But they are deep and hold a lot of items are are lit too. The full width Deli drawer is nice for storage of just about anything. All come with separate temp controls too. The Freezer drawer is deep and split into 2 side via a plastic tube. I see forgetting about certain items in the bottom after awhile. The 2 pull-out drawers work perfect for often accessed items (smaller one on the left holds 2 loaves of bread (or extra ice) & the larger right drawer is perfect for ice cream and other frozen treats). The little tip-out shelf on the backside of the freezer drawer is nice for frozen cans of juice. The water/ice cube dispenser is a nice feature even if the ice cubes do come out at weird angles (make sure to keep your container (glass) right up against the dispenser or you will be cleaning up ice cubes off the floor). The autofill works awesome of small containers. I put an empty Gatoraid bottle under it and did the Autofill and it stop about 1/8" from the bottle neck. Perfect. The water does fill kind of slow (personal opinion) but better than splashing all over coming out too forcefully. No matter if you use the Autofill or just manually fill it tells you on the screen how many ounces you have dispensed which is kind of cool. Having the water filter accessible but still hidden in the door itself is a nice option too. It comes with a by-pass plug too incase after you find out how much the filters cost to replace you choose to no longer filter your water. You can upload images to the LCD screen thru the USB port (no mention of it or how to use it in the manual) located in the top left corner of the water/ice dispenser. You can load up to 99 images (depending on the image sizes). Your images have to be in the home directory (no folders or sub-folders) of the device you are pluging in to it. It will automatically copy the images to the mini-hard drive for the screen. It will cycle them as a slideshow in the order that you uploaded them in, no random feature, anytime you use the water/ice dispenser. Some reviewers have 'mentioned' (code for complained) about the noise it makes. The compressers are high efficient so they run more often than some older models. I used a Sound Meter app on my phone and they peaked between 42-48dB. Not that loud but you will hear it. If it is in an open area the sound will travel to the next room. It will take some getting used to but being more efficient comes at a price. It is quiet but not silent. Older models ran louder but turned on/off more often. The newer ones run longer but use a lot less power. But the sound is something to consider with this model. The door handles are quite thick and show fingerprints very easily. The shipping shrinkwrap is kind of tough to remove, especially since I think they put it on before some of the door handle hardware so it leaves little flakes at the joints, tweezer-worthy to remove them. We actually left it on the pull out tray under the water/ice dispenser. It is a cool looking blue and anything to draw attention to it adds to the look of it. The water hookup is pretty easy along with the power plug (if standing in front of the fridge the water hookup is on the left and the power plug on the right). It does roll forward and back pretty easily for a fridge of this weight but not side-to-side as the wheels don't pivot. This beast is a prime example of fashion and function. It can handle anything you put in it and look beautiful in any kitchen. I call it a beast as this was a huge upgrade for our house (18 cu.ft. 1995 model to this 28.6 cu.ft. monster).

We built a house and I was most looking forwad to my new appliances, esecially a fridge with an ice make, as we used 8 trays of ice a week! We bought the GE fridge, dishwasher, and gas range. Love range and dishwasher, NOT the fridge, the ice maker in the door has been malfunctioning on several occassions, had repair man out twice since January. Just had to call for repair yet again. It leaks water so much that tray fills up so when you shut door water splashes out, on my new oak floors! Jams up and we use plenty of ice everyday. I also don't care for the way I have to get storage bin out of door, especially since it jams all the time an I want to get ice out of bin since it won't come down the shoot. Seriously disappointed on such an expensive fridge that this is a problem. If this product is not repaired this time I will be seeking anther fridge. Another problem, the auto fill will only work with glass glasses, plastic cups do not fill appropriately. I don't recommend because no matter how nice other features may be this ice maker problem is unbearable and a HUGE WASTE of time and money.

Comments about GE Profile Stainless Steel Refrigerator:
Owned for 2 years. This refrigerator looks good and sleek. The main problem i am having is due to the way the builder installed it in a tight space. I cannot fully open the doors so cannot get the drawers out without a huge struggle. The door bangs the granite on the right as they built it almost into the corner. Beware if you cannot fully open the doors 180 degrees as you will have to take all the door baskets off to get the drawers out. At one point, my lettuce and yogurts etc were getting frozen but then it stopped on it's own so not sure why. The fridge is noisy. In fact it is noisier than my dishwasher when it is cycling. The water dispenser has been a problem. I like the auto fill and the kids get a kick out of it. However, the manual dispensing lever is now stuck and even the auto fill is stuck and has overflowed several times. We can't walk away while filling anything as it may overflow. I would like to remove the lever so i can clean it but not sure how to do that. The pull out tray is hard to clean from the water stains (i have tried everything and the drip spot won't come fully clean). Also the tray under it needs to be removed so I can clean the moldy grime that lives there and i cannot figure out how to do that and a cloth or sponge won't reach. The shelves seem very limited on space. I have tall drinks on the right and have very little space above the drinks for shelf items. The freezer is good size however if you need a lot of ice, you will need to fill the freezer with ice.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

less than a year old ice maker shoots ice cubes -
from Lowell, IN 46356, United States
on the floor all by its self and water ruined laminate floor not even a year old and as a one year warranty 3500 refrigerator should last 30 years unbelivable
Look great and has plenty of space. Easy to keep clean and organized
from Teaneck, NJ, United States
I love the look, modern features, lights and options. However the fridge is a bit noisy, otherwise it's perfect
Cheap plastic trim on shelves and drawers.
from Louisville, CO, United States
The trim on the shelves are painted silver over white. With regular use they will begin to wear letting the white under the silver show through and looks cheap and old. Also, the set up of the shelving makes it hard to store anything of any real size. I prefer my old GE side by side. Cheaper and better made.
Exceeds all expectations!
from Williston, SC, United States
Wow! Love this! Gorgeous and amazingly easy to keep sparkling...door features are not only functional but FUN...solid construction, much better than other brands we own...interior design is versatile, clean and attractive...excellent balance of refrigerator and freezer space.
Missing 1 thing!!!
from Laurinburg, NC, United States
I love this fridge, but I wish the pull out drawer (for snacks) in the refrigerator was accessible from the exterior. Each time you want something like a sandwich or snack you have to open both doors to slide the drawer out, which a negative for energy saving. On the plus side .... It is humongous!!! So it holds lots of stuff. Oh and if you want lots of ice this is not the fridge for you, since it has an extremely small ice bucket which is housed on the door. This leaves extra space for the interior of the fridge. It does make a little more noise than we were used to, but the features make the positives outweigh the negatives.
Crushed Ice Scatters; Fresh Food Fan Failed
By Buddy Driggers
from North Carolina
As other reviewers have said, ice from the dispenser flies in all directions when selecting crushed ice. Drinking containers with openings of virtually any size can NOT catch this ice, contrary to the advice from GE on this site. It's a mess every time. Very poor design. Also, food in the refrigerator was "sweating" and relatively warm for a while, even though the temperature was set at 34. In addition, there was a significant amount of frost buildup in the in the bottom-load freezer; the freezer was not left open, other than with normal use. We called GE the technician who came immediately knew the problem, saying that this was a KNOWN ISSUE with this model. He replaced the fresh food fan, which seems to have addressed the issue, at least for now.
