    I like the freezer

    I thought I would be different and get a French door fridge to match my other GE appliances. It's spacious, but I've had to get use to the differences in functionality. I'm use to a side by side where all my condiments fit in either tray. However the compartments on the left of the fridge are very different. The 1st tray is only wide enough to fit 3 or 4 Yogurt containers. The one underneath it might fit salad dressing but not a regular container of Mayo. I have to place those condiments on the right side. I have to place the milk and OJ on the right side too b/c they won't fit in the main area b/c of the height. The main trays are adjustable but that makes the other areas less functional. I do like the water dispenser and the spaciousness and layout of the freezer! This stainless steel fridge is a fingerprint magnet though. I'll wipe it down with special cleaner at some point and see if this helps. If I had to choose again, I would still consider this GE fridge.

    I had to learn my lesson the hard way that the French door style hinges Open wider than the width of The refrigerator dimensions listed. When I chose to go with the wider 36 inch refrigerator (after moving some cabinetry) I also learned that the additional width comes with additional depth this requiring me to switch again to a countertop depth model. I was concerned that the lower cubic footage would be limiting but the interior design of the fridge, the placement of the drawers, the keep fresh drawers etc are very functional and efficient. The in-door ice maker is a huge space saver even if you lose some in-door shelving on that side (still works great for the smaller Or narrower bottles like salad dressings, catch up mustard soy sauce etc. The only reason I did not give this five stars is that the refrigerator is periodically noisy. Not all the time and it's possible that some of the vibration may be related to not having set the refrigerator in its final position until I complete the rest of my kitchen remodel. All in all I'm very happy with it. It looks beautiful and it's the size I really wanted and maximizes all the space it has available

    So far so good. Went from a 29.8 cf dog of a French door in a different brand to this, but there is plenty of space with room to spare. We bought the add-on ice maker for the freezer and haven’t had to use it for ice once. The in-door ice maker has been quite capable of producing ice on demand. I knew it didn’t have a place for butter, but I wish it did. Coming from a fridge that had one, I didn’t think I’d miss it, but I do. The two top shelves on the inside left door remain empty. I don’t have grocery items small enough to store in there so this may prove to be wasted space. It does have a slightly more notable hum than our old fridge, but nothing unbearable or annoying. I’m used to the occasional pops, whirs, and sputters, so no surprises here. Again, nothing unbearable or annoying. We’ve had the GE for about a month now and we really like it. We’re grateful to have a fridge that keeps our food cold and makes ice when we need it. It does what a refrigerator should do. Fingers crossed that this one will make up for the horror we went through for seven years with another brand.

    A few issues, but not horrible

    I do love the look of the refrigerator. I feel the handles show fingerprints and I have to wipe it down at least 3 times a day. I wish they would have made the handles fingerprint free because that is where the the refrigerator is touched the most. The finish on the actual refrigerator is fingerprint free. The ice maker is a little small and serves us well for two people. I keep a gallon size bag of ice in freezer for drinks for a crowd. I can always go get ice so I much rather have more room in refrigerator/freezer. Besides from the fingerprints on handles, the water spout drips and is continuing to drip. I wipe it up when I have to wash the handles. I worry about the drip because of my hardwood floors. All and all I like this refrigerator so far but have only had it for 3 months.

    The frig has plenty of room and love the double doors. The water dispenser has a good speed. The ice maker in the door is great, but doesn’t hold a lot of ice. The drawers are thinner plastic than other refrigerators I’ve had. You will need to open the both doors to get in to the bottom drawer. The frig doors do not closes on their own like other models.

    We received our new fridge about two months ago and love it. The shelves are well organized - we don't lose things in the back of the fridge like we did with our previous fridge. The freezer is spacious with plenty of room. It also looks great in our kitchen. Only con is the fan noise is a little louder than I would have expected. It doesn't bother us but something I noticed after having it installed.

    When my Kenmore Elite died just a few months after the extended warranty expired we chose to go to BestBuy and get this one. It's nice and roomy and although it's not stainless steel, it still looks good with our other stainless steel appliances. The lighting in the fridge is a bit spotty so parts are a bit dim. One big plus, magnets stick to the door.

    Everything about this fridge is good except the icemaker. The icemaker regularly stops making ice because of a stuck chip in the arm or ice gets stuck dispensing. Each time I have to open up the compartment and remove the offending ice to continue operation. Otherwise it's a great fridge.

    The only reason I didn't rate this refrigerator 5 stars is because the bottom drawer is the full width of the refrigerator which require both doors to be open to access it unlike the drawers above it, which are split. Engineering flaw, but otherwise very sleek, stylish, and cool. Pardon the pun.

    I am pleased with the refrigerator itself, however, the outside ice and water dispensors are a disappointment. The crushed ice is mostly big chunks and messy and the water comes out so slow I can't stand to even use it. If I had to do over would get same frig without this option and save money and mess.

    The fridge is very spacious and well organized. Plenty of room for everything. I like that the ice maker is on the door and doesn’t block half a shelf off. Only complaint I have is that the water dispenser is slow. To fill up a cup it will take 30 or more seconds this is with the line opened up completely.

    Would have given 5 stars but as the reviews say it is a noisy refrigerator. Don't mind the ice maker since it is in the door - I'd expect that to be loud but the compressor/fan are quite loud. Other than that it is a great piece, and love the slate color

    Overall very pleased with the fridge, looks very nice and has plenty of space and features. Only negatives, which are not too bad, are the noise level is on the high side and after filling a cup of water there is frequently an extra drip or two that will drop and sit on the tray.

    I love every single thing about this fridge EXCEPT.... on the left side of the door (when opened) where the ice and water filter are is a total waste of a fridge door. It came with 1mini shelf which is literally no deeper than 2 inches. It fits salad dressing bottles and that's about it.

    we really love this unit because of the space, and water and ice, and the look. The only negative is the doors don't always close when you push them; sometimes you have to push them close; but that's what the door open alarm is for =)

    We have had fridge for a little over a week and so far its been really good. The lighting is great, fits a full pizza box which is a huge plus and looks really nice. The only con is that the left door with the ice maker is a little bulky and tough to get around sometimes.

    We love our French Door Fridge. There's plenty of space for a family of 4. The only downside is the icemaker. It spits ice every where, some makes it into the glasses but mostly on the floor.

    We’ve had this refrigerator for 2 or 3 weeks. We’re completely satisfied with its performance. However it’s sometimes very noisy with a loud humming sound. Most of the time it’s quiet, but when it’s noisy it’s objectionable.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Fridge is built solid. It started out a bit noisier than the last fridge but seems to have quieted down over the last week. Also wish it would have come with a split shelf for taller fridge items - had to buy one online separately.

    The ice and water functions are loud! The water drips after you get water. We like the shelves adjustability. The freezer is big and holds more than our side by side. We like it.
