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.

I bought this GE refrigerator on the 8th of December, and I can say I'm a happy customer. No complaints. It comes set up by the company. Didn't have to do anything but put my groceries in it.

Like This Refridgerator

By Starfarms

from Grand Rapids, MI, United States

We bought this fridge to replace our 16 year old GE side-by-side. Our old fridge is still working well and is now being used for extra fridge storage. This new fridge has a nice clean appearance to it and also is a nice side-by-side, but it features more storage room width when you have a need. The bottom freezer offers quite a bit of open area and has several bins to store and separate items. We use quite a bit of ice and what's nice with this fridge/freezer is that it has ice storage in the door for dispensing and it also makes/ stores ice in the bottom freezer as well. The dispenser area is BIG and you can even just set the pitcher in this space while filling it. The dispenser does leave a drip or two after dispensing and so I have just learned to hold my glass under the dispenser a moment or two longer to catch the drip and it is no longer an issue. At first we thought the fridge was noisy, but it no longer is. We realized with the fridge being new, it had to achieve the correct consistent temperature which made for the continuous noise. Makes sense!

Gr8 capacity

I bought this three months ago and to our surprise, we have about 4 more cubic feet of space inside, and yet the outside is the dimensions as our 25 cubic refrigerator.

I am in love with my refrigerator

By Tennyson

from Albany, GA, United States

I have had a side by side refrigerator for over 20 years, but the design of this refrigerator is absolutely fantastic. I love having 2 ice makers. The configuration of the drawers are great. Everything seems to fit better and nothing seems to get hidden from view.

Great refrigerator!


from Rochester, MI, United States

I am very happy with this frig. It has tons of room and great lighting. I had this type of frig (different brand) for the past 11 years and this one is so much better. The freezer has better organization, it is quiet and we love the water and ice on the door.

GFE29HGDBB - Very Nice

By JimPA

from Center Valley, PA, United States

Purchased to replace a 1998 non-GE model side-by-side. The new GFE29HGDBB is great - LED lighting, temperature display, overall cooling / freezing performance. We really love it. Was concerned changing from side-by-side to this new layout, and now that we have it, would not go back ! It's same dimensions of 1998 fridge, but has more internal storage - nice ! Other reviews related to plastic wrap removal difficulty - we ended up calling GE and they came out to remove it no charge. Also, full width sliding drawer in fridge, not freezer, was not staying closed - also fixed by GE no charge by raising front leveling feet, making necessary to unlevel for moving, but acceptable. Plastic baffle / strip under fridge was not described in literature, suspected it was for airflow routing under fridge and not leftover packaging that needed to be removed - GE service person confirmed on visit that yes, the plastic baffle / strip touching floor should remain in place. Would be nice if another internal plastic separator was included in freezer for the large drawer section, but it works. I use an outlet surge protector to help protect fridge electronics. Would buy again ? YES. Highly recommended if in market for a new fridge !!

Love it!!

By Labalia

from Miami, FL

I love this refrigerator, especially the vegetable and fruit bins. I buy mostly organic and find that they last three or four times longer than my old refrigerator. It used to be that I would open a bag of lettuce or spinach and after two days it was ruined. With this refrigerator, they last two to three weeks which has saved me a fortune! My only complaint is the ice compartmenton the door throws the ice down way too strong. It broke the last of my favorite glasses because the cubes come down with such force, that it cracked the glasses and I had to toss them.
