We absolutely love this refrigerator! I deducted 1 star due to the protective plastic being so difficult to remove. The panels of this refrigerator are wrapped in protective plastic and then assembled. Needless to say the protective plastic is in seams and doesn't come out easily. I spent way more than an hour trying to pick pieces of plastic out of the seams; plastic could be seen. A lot of places I had to use tweezers to pull enough of the plastic out so that it couldn't be seen. The dispenser area was the worst for the plastic problem; the plastic is blue not clear and it is up under areas that are impossible to remove; there are still pieces of the plastic that I can't get out. Great refrigerator. GE just needs to rethink the protective plastic and put it on after the refrigerator is assembled and not before. This refrigerator is top of the line without being a really expensive built it. If you are going to buy a refrigerator, buy the best because you are going to have it for the next 20 years or more. This refrigerator has a very large capacity. The interior lights are very nice. Every thing about this refrigerator uses spaces as efficiently as possible. The ice maker in the door takes up considerably less space than other refrigerators that we have owned. The panel over the ice maker is very easy to disengage using a handle to allow easy access to the ice bin. The ice bin is easy to remove and put back in. I can take the ice bin out with one hand; that was never possible with any other refrigerators that we have owned. The panel over the ice maker even has a shelf basket to maximize space. The refrigerator that we replaced was a side by side and it was about the same size as this GE. The side by side was pretty full. I couldn't get over when I transferred everything to the GE that the GE was only about half full. This refrigerator uses spaces so efficiently and everything is easily accessible (not something I could say about our old side by side). The freezer area uses spaces just as efficiently. It has the bottom areas, then the top sliding shelves. On the inside front is a shelf for small items like frozen orange juice, butter, etc. What an awesome idea! I don't think I noticed this shelf feature when reviewing this refrigerator to purchase. Overall an awesome refrigerator. GE just needs to address the protective plastic problem.

I purchased this refrigerator about 1 year & 9 months ago and was originally extremely pleased with my purchase. Shortly after purchasing, we started noticing the occasional small puddle of water on the floor directly in front on the left-hand side of the refrigerator. Because it was only happening occasionally & it was a small amount of water, we attributed it to possibly be an issue where one of our boys had dropped an ice cube or small amount of water from the dispenser. We would wipe up the water and that would be the end of it for a period of time. Over the last several weeks, I noticed that the small puddle of water was appearing more frequently I started investigating further by pulling the refrigerator out from the recessed area where it sits and looked around to see if there was an obvious source of where the water was coming from. I immediately noticed a small area on the left-side of the refrigerator that appeared to have condensation forming & running down the side and onto the floor. I had never seen anything like this before and had no idea why it was happening. It was clearly the source of the water that was appearing on the floor. I called an appliance repair company and explained my problem to one of the technicians and he proceeded to say that he had never heard of anything like that happening and recommended I call GE directly. I called GE, explained the issue, and scheduled a technician to come out to take a look. When the technician arrived and observed the issue, he commented that he had never seen anything like this before and he deemed the refrigerator non-repairable. He also observed rust forming on the side of the refrigerator which indicates the issue has been occurring for some time. My initial reaction was, how could a less than 2 year old GE refrigerator be non-repairable? I am now in the process of getting a replacement refrigerator.

so happy with new refrigerator, much roomier than I anticipated
I wanted to love this frig....but
By All new appliances
from Indiana, United States
I chose this frig for its features. This is my first time to own a French door frig. The freezer size fits our needs and holds a surprising amount. Love the water dispenser, however the ice dispenser is just ok. We ran out of ice on Christmas Day for a family of 8. When I use the crushed ice option, it tends to through the ice every where. I like the shelving in the doors (both doors). I can't seem to find a "happy place" for the interior shelving that works for me. The drawers have been good except the "deli". We have had trouble with it staying on track. I do appreciate that I can change the settings for the 3rd drawer. Over all I like the frig, but a little disappointment with some features.
Lots of room

This came with our new home. I have not been disappointed.

We purchased 2 + months and so far we're happy with it
from Seattle, WA, United States
We bought this 4 months ago. Full size not cabinet depth. Our only complaint is it's noisy. We had the GE certified tech come out, he hooked his computer up (everything is computerized) and he could tell us everything about the fridge from the temp by date and time to the fan usage and action. Apparently its noisier because it's SO energy efficient. We had an older fridge before. So good to know. The other challenge is the ice will back up in the dispenser so we have to open the door and unblock. But over all we love it!

I bought this refrigerator a month ago and so far has been an excellent buy. We especially enjoy the installed hot water device.

Never owned a GE appliance before and it turns out I should have. Love the space and the layout

So many cool features make this fridge amazing. We use the hot water function all the time, and love the LED lighting. So spacious, and the setup of drawers is great.
Nice Refrigerator but shortchanges ice
from Sarasota, FL, United States
This refrigerator was provided as part of the kitchen package of our new home. It is a nice looking unit. The storage capacity is quite impressive and the french doors operate well. Both the refrigerator space and the bottom freezer unit offer excellent storage capacity and function well. Two features are a bit disappointing: While the icemaker behind the left door works well, the ice storage capacity is limited; we run out of ice too frequently. In addtion the "water" button on the front panel tends to stick, precluding utilization of the other features we "fiddle" with it to release.
