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:
While I do like the model I am a little disappointed in how much it can hold. There isnt enough room on the shelves for me, especially taller items. I do like the cold drawer, that is excellent. The freezer also is not big enough and I cannot buy a lot of frozen food. The stainless steel model shows a lot of finger marks, and it's a daily cleaning chore. I do like the water spout on the door and the fact that it can fill a glass when placed under it, but I find it doesn't fill larger pitchers by itself, and the precise fill does not seem to do it's job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the ice maker and the electronics.
from Stewartstown, PA, United States
It solved our problem of a defective refrigerator.
from Bakersfield, CA.
A little more quite would help seems like it runs more than the old one. Ice maker is not the best if you don't use it daily it freezes up and won't drop any ice Make limited ice.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Did I get a lemon!
from Michigan, United States
Bought the refrigerator in July 2014 and already the fan went on it . It was still under warranty and GE did replace the fan. Have had many GE Profile appliances with no problems but this time around I can't say the same.
A great reefer that could still be improved.
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
I've owned the reefer for 5 months now. Aesthetically and general capacity wise it is great. I didn'the think I would use the hands free water dispenser feature much but have found it very useful even though it can be finicky, only working with certain cups placed in certain positions. I likd b that feature a lot. In the hot summer months it would be nice if it dispensed chilled water. Since the water dispenser dispenses water at whatever temperature the water in your pipes happens to be, ice is necessary if you want cold water. I've found the ice maker capacity is only enough for very light use. I constantly ran out of ice when I had one house guest. Though I didn'the monitor her ice consumption, and I suppose it may have been of ridiculous proportions, I doubt that was the case. I feel a reefer at this price range should be able to produce enough ice for 2 adults. The water filter has an acceptable lifespan. I drink more water than the average family of 5 and have only recently been prompted to replace the ft Ilter after 5 months of use. Though if GE holds a monopoly on these filters I expect they will likely be on the extreme end of the price range. I've yet to look into that.The first few weeks I did notice this reefer runs a little noisy. It was noticeable at first, being a new appliance in the house, but just the other night I realized I hadn't noticed the noise in several months. Although most of my review sounds negative I only mean to point out what I would like in the perfect reefer. Overall I am happy with this appliance.
Love my new refrigerator
from Belleville, MI
Never thought I would enjoy having a refrigerator with a water dispensor on the door but absolutely love it, especially the precession water fill. Love all the space and drawers inside the refrigerator as well.
from Indian Trail, NC, United States
Very spacious love the light up features for the water and ice (crushed and cubed) dispenser. And the beep alert to let you know the fridge is open to long. Great features. Love it.
I have owned my since July 2014 and still love it! I love all the space it has and all its features
Lots of space but had to return.
from Pensacola, FL, United States
I bought this based on it seemed like the best of all refrigerators. Lots of space, easy controls, fast delivery. The finish and hardware looked tougher than the others. However, it never reached temperature. Ge offered to repair but ge representative from company recommended replacement since I only had 3 days. I really wanted the ge but had to send it back.
from Drums, PA, United States
I love the open space in this refrigerator! Having a shelf that folds back allows for storing large wine bottles. The storage drawer for meats and cheeses is a dream, very efficient. No complaints! Why is it discontinued?
