Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Beautiful and functional fridge

11/26/2018

We have just purchased and installed this fridge. It simply is beautiful and so functional. We came from a small apartment fridge and this one is a much needed upgrade and perfect for entertaining with adjustable shelving. We just love it

Not Stainless Steel

11/18/2018

Bought this believing it was stainless steel arrived to find out it is only stainless steel colour not a stainless steel front. Well since it isnt stainless steel we put our granddaughters art work on the front door with a magnet. Removed it after a while only to find that the magnet iodized the door and left a pit hole in the finish. We never would have purchased this for this kind of money if we knew it wasnt truly stainless steel.

Great Look Great Features Terrible Knocking

8/27/2018

This refrigerator had all the features and look that we wanted. Unfortunately it knocks loudly during the cooling cycle. Weve had two different repair men try and fix or muffle the noise unsuccessfully and have been told this is just the way they make them now. Weve previously owned several GE appliances and have always liked our choices so this has been a big disappointment. We are getting a different refrigerator.

Disappointing

8/7/2018

The shelves on the inside of the door are kind of narrow so its hard to store larger objects e.g. wine bottles 2-liter soda bottles. Also despite what it says on the Customer Removable Label theres no Water Dispenser.

We needed a full size refrigerator to fit into our city apartment. And we wanted a bottom freezer. This fit the bill perfectly. Its a smallish refrigerator with plenty of room and ease of access to both refrigerator and freezer compartments.

I love this refrigerator except for the on/off switch for the ice maker. It is too inconvenient to get to. I dont use a lot of ice so I turn it off periodically. The switch needs to be easier to access.
