When our old side by side died, I wasn't that sad. I'd been looking forward to exchanging it for a french door model someday but was unprepared for the vast array of choices. After more hours of research than I care to contemplate I settled on GE because of the company's reputation, and ultimately this model mostly because of the dual ice makers. Many reviewers complained about a shortage of ice and we are big ice users. We have yet to run out of ice and have emptied the bottom freezer ice bin a couple of times for ice chest use on trips and have found that it fills up again quite quickly. The filtered ice and water taste excellent. The dispenser is prone to fling ice chips onto the floor occasionally (a common reviewer complaint) but we aren't finding it to be a huge issue. Some reviewers complained of inconsistent temperatures and ice maker/water dispenser failure but we have encountered none of those problems. I have extensively tested each area of the fridge and freezer compartments and have found the temperatures to be spot on all the time. Another common reviewer complaint was noise but we have not found this fridge to be noisy. There are sounds, of course, but nothing annoying. I am loving all the extra space inside. We made it through Thanksgiving without having to stow anything significant out in the garage fridge like we used to. I'm finding that the door bins don't hold quite as much as in my old side by side because the bins behind the ice maker are much narrower, but with all the extra space inside this is not an issue. It is a bit of an adjustment to arrange everything because the layout is so different but I really like having all the refrigerator items up high and easy to see. I'm short and still able to reach items at the back of the top shelves. The bottom freezer is very easy to organize and it's not at all like digging through a chest freezer to find things. There is a divider in the bottom section of the freezer and an upper bin as well to help organize your frozen foods. The inside lights are nice and bright and well placed. The produce drawers and the full width drawer are amply large and hold a lot of food. My only complaint about my new fridge is one I saw raised by many other reviewers. A plastic film is laid over the outer surfaces during the manufacturing process and is literally bolted onto the refrigerator as it is assembled. This plastic is extremely difficult to remove and even now I still have a few tufts of it sticking out around the edges. I've resorted to using tweezers to try to get at all the little bits of it. I understand the need to protect the appliance in transit but there MUST be a better way than to annoy all your customers for months on end forcing them to chase little bits of very stubborn plastic or resign themselves to live with the tufts. Plastic hairs aside, you won't go wrong with this wonderful refrigerator. If you shop around some you'll be able to find prices significantly lower than MSRP. We are happy and satisfied with our choice!

I bought this refrigerator several weeks ago after our GE Profile just quit. It is several cubic feet larger than what we had (but it fit in the same space very nicely) and a different configuration which I love. We had a side by side which fit nothing. The pros are that it came in black and has a door alarm which I really wanted. It also has two ice makers which is convenient. I like the freezer on the bottom too. The cons are that it is quite loud when running which is nearly all the time, the kids can't reach any but the lower shelf and the temp select zone drawer is on the inside and covers the width of the fridge so you have to open both doors to access it. Not the smartest design in my opinion. I wish I had more time to shop around but the price was right, features were acceptable and delivery quick.

Comments about GE Black French Door Refrigerator:
Looks nice but has required service twice in the year we have owned it. The fan cooling the motherboard just doesn't last.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this for the second ice maker and the style. I love it.
Very happy with this purchase
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
We've had this fridge just over 3 months and couldn't be happier with this appliance. Although I'll agree with most reviewers there is an infrequent noise as the freezer adjusts, it is barely noticeable and lasts no more than 3 seconds. I'll easily take this given the amount of storage that comes with this fridge. Other features we are very pleased with include the ice dispenser, along with the ice tray, and the fact storage is still available for small items in the door with the ice/water dispenser. We had purchased other black GE appliances about a year prior to picking this out, figuring we would see how those performed, and I am very pleased to say our fridge goes well in terms of looks and function. If you are looking for a french door / bottom freezer fridge I highly recommend this product. I'm one of those purchasers that does extensive research and base purchases on others' posts so I am glad to provide my opinion about this product.
Best design for maximum space
from Houston, TX, United States
This fridge is the best! Fully adjustable shelves allow for maximum space. Double ice makers ensure you will never run out of ice!

My son bought one last fall in this style and I liked it.
from Bloomington, IL, United States
We had a side by side and didn't know how much we didn't like it until we got this refrigerator. The other one had an ice maker that never quite worked right then the water supply went out. This one is so roomy and I am not hunting and searching for things. I love the freezer in the bottom and so does my son. He has his own special shelf in the frig as well as the freezer. Couldn't be happier
from Grand Marsh, WI, United States
We were in need of a larger fridge and this is it! With 5 people (including 2 growing boys) in the house, the need for space and efficiency is why we went with this product!
