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.

Bought it a week ago very happy with the product. Looks great.
Very nice. My wife is very happy.
from Denton, TX
We had our old fridge for 20 years, so moving up to this model has been like going to heaven. With 5 people living in the house, the space is amazing and items are easy to get reach. My only issue is the outside depth. I will have to have a plumber recess the water valve behind the fridge to give me the 2" I need for clear for clearance. It will still be worth it.
What a disappointmet
from Wilmington, NC, United States
Bought this to put in my new house and have found it to be one of the worst investments ever. Going on barely 6 months and have had it serviced 3 times already (parts needed replacing)... it is LOUD, makes clunky noises, and in my case... just STOPS working
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
NOISE from the fans is ridiculous.
from Birmingham, Alabama
Purchased the PFE29PSDASS in November 2013. The refrigerator was always was a little loud but at the 13 month period the fan noise went from annoying to ridiculous. Looking at diagrams of the refrigerator, it looks like there are at least 4 fans all of which are loud. When friends come over they see the refrigerator and love the looks and styling, I like the room, but when the fan starts yelling at them the last thing they ever want to do is buy a GE refrigerator. We paid a premium price for the refrigerator and a super quiet dishwasher so that we could not be subject to appliance noise. Now that is all for not. WHY ARE THESE EXPENSIVE REFRIGERATORS SO LOUD AND GETTING LOUDER EACH DAY!!!!
stops cooling, fans get really loud
from Florida, United States
I have had this refrigerator just over 1 year. It was great for about 6 months then it started getting really loud. I called and the tech did a software upgrade. This worked for a couple of months and then the noise came back again. Two weeks ago I noticed the refrigerator was not cooling called support but before they came out the refrigerator started working again. Today it stopped cooling again. Not happy with this refrigerator, I am happy that I took out an extra 3 years of protection. Also when you go get ice it goes all over the place unless you hold the glass all the way to the top and ice still spills but not as much
the right choice
from South Burlington, VT, United States
delivered in October...has been everything we had hoped for in a fridge
from Tempe, AZ, United States
We purchased this product a couple of weeks ago. It is loud and messy. There is always some kind of noise coming from the unit which can be heard from outside the kitchen and the ice dispenser throws ice outside the beverage container. It does not crush the ice the way our old unit did. I would call it a cruncher instead since it only breaks the cubes sometimes. This model showed a good review when we bought it but now I see that it has been discontinued, which is no surprise.
