Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

4/27/2018

Refrigerator was installed 3 months ago and I love it It has all the space we need and great features. One I especially love is the water dispenser inside the refrigerator. We opted not to get the through the door ice and water dispenser and are so much happier getting filtered water this way. We feel there is so much more usable space inside this way. And it makes ice much quicker than I would expect in the freezer compartment. Happy all the way around

I like everything about our new fridge except the water dispenser. It requires both hands and to access it comfortably both doors need to be open. It would be easier if the button could be activated by pressing the glass against a button rather than above it.

Over rated

4/7/2018

My first view of my counter depth refrigerator was a side view hanging out a good five inches from my new off white cabinets. The side of the body is black not even stainless steel so it sticks out like a sore thumb. The inside water dispenser is SO difficult to use. You have to push very hard in just the right spot to get the water flowing. If your filling a large container it takes a long time because the flow constantly is interrupted because my thumb get sore from holding it down. The freezer door was off track and had to have a technician come over and adjust it. If you open the freezer then close it you cant reopen it for several seconds as it seems to air lock. Otherwise it seems to work fine.

So many problems with the Fridge

3/27/2018

We have owned this GE Fridge for over a year and have had so many problems: - We have had our ice maker replaced about 5 times. Now I have learned to fix it on my own so I dont even bother to call for help anymore - recently the door flap that seals the door stopped working. Bottom Line - I will never buy another GE Fridge

Love the counter depth feature

3/25/2018

Bought entire Cafe line as replacement appliances due to house fire. Had GE Profile before and wanted to move up but did not like the looks of Monogram series. Like counter depth of this. The water dispenser is inside the left door and is is not only hard to use but too high for a child to use. I would ask the designers to work on that feature. It is hard to press in and get water out and no convenient for filling pitchers or pots. Also have problem w/ bottom freezer drawer unit not closing tightly enough to prevent frost from forming inside unit. Ice maker does not seem to produce enough ice and there are only two in our family.

Good all around- and Sharp.

2/19/2018

Bought this four months ago and so far so good. Very quiet Ice maker works very well and we prefer the interior water maker for a clean look on outside and seemingly more durable mechanism. Looks great and dual cooling keeps our veggies good for over a month Meat drawer set at 32 keeps meat longer too. A little small interior but helps to keep us high-grading unwanted food. Great purchase from a local dealer solidly built. Shelves maximize space and drawers roll smoothly. Researched many models and consumer guides this was a great value.

Refrigerator Review

2/17/2018

I had bought the Cafe series which includes this refrigerator. I like the type that I bought since it seems almost everyone has trouble with the ice maker being on the door. If I owned such a company as GE I would eliminate this problem which in the long run would increase sales. But here is my problem with GE other such type companies you give the refrigerators actual dimensions but do not give the open door dimensions with just the left door open or right or just both huge problem So as we precisely had my cabinets / counter-top measured out guess what cant open the right door fully believe me so disappointed So as a result we had to cut out part of the wall to allow it to open to at least 90 degrees. So to me this is a great suggestion since I have seen this happen recently before and would be an easy solution to a massive issue. I would be pleased to have someone get a hold of me accordingly. Oh I would have liked to attach a picture but I already started to write this comment and do not presently have a picture of the issue on this computer. Thank You in Advance.

Much better than last GE- but some issues

2/2/2018

We had a Monogram side-by-side with water ice dispenser. We dont miss that stuff. Ice dropping on the floor cant fill an ice bucket for cocktails easily a few drips of water in the tray leaving a mess. The ice maker has a much better sensor than our Monogram or the newer GEs weve installed in some of our rental houses. Best of all more room inside. The French door is much more useable than side-by-side. The bad: The freezer handle is loose and we cant get it any tighter. You have to pull straight forward not upward at all or you loosen the handle more. Ill be looking at machining down the fasteners for a better fit. Its a bad design. Coming from a Monogram everything feels a little cheap. Theres a reason a Monogram weighs 70# more. We dont like the way the door faces stick up above the main box. Looks strange from the side. You dont notice in the showroom because you arent seeing the unit in a cabinet. Also I had to level the doors. You turn the screws the opposite direction from whats described in the manual. Finally when delivered our open door alarm would go off randomly. I shut the alarm off and then switched on and its fine now.

1/27/2018

Im happy with the performance of the fridge. After delivery we found two small dents in the door and the freezer drawer always comes off track and pulls out crooked. Our appliance dealer said theyd replace the door but the drawer they have no idea. It doesnt affect the performance of the fridge but is unfortunate.

There is so much room in this GE Cafe bottom freezer model I used to have a side by side. Now I can fit full size serving bowls in my refrigerator The intuitive produce/deli drawer settings are outstanding I was nervous about having enough room in the freezer... Ha I have more room What you do is make sure you see the edge of every item Do not stack things on top of each other Having the water tap on the inside is genius No more water streaks on door

Bought this refigerator a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. The bins keep my lettuce and veggies crisp and they last a lot longer than in my old frig. Plenty of storage inside both French doors...we have a his and hers side. Love the slide out drawer for cheeses and yogurt. Lighting is bright. Ice tray easy to use and makes just enough ice for the two of us. Would buy this machine again

Beautiful But...

11/29/2017

It not exactly counter depth it is about 4 deeper than our 24 counter. The water dispenser at the interior button is a bit to hard to push and it is a bit awkward to get your glass/water bottle under it to fill. The water tastes good though. There is not a cheese drawer.

roomy for counter depth

11/21/2017

I was worried that a counter depth refrigerator would not be enough space for a family of four. However this refrigerator is so well organized and all space is maximized. It is easy to see all the food at once so we are wasting less food. The freezer drawer can be sticky and hard to open if you are a small kid. Overall I would recommend this style of fridge for a small family.

A good choice

10/27/2017

My previous GE refrigerator was a side by side so takes some getting used to this bottom freezer counter depth model. The freezer part Im still getting used to since every item is thrown into the freezer case and I have to dig through many items to get what I need. With the side by side with its many shelves I was able to locate what I needed quickly. So Im not in love with the freezer but the refrigerator section I love Seems to hold so much more than previous refrigerator. There are two door shelves so easy to organize contents. I especially like the drop down shelf. So I guess I have a trade off between the freezer and frig sections so I guess Im satisfied.
