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.

An upgrade

12/31/2018

This year we decided to upgrade with a new fridge. We took a leap and got this one. The first thing that got my attention is the finish and look on the inside of this one then it was the price that really sealed the deal. We have had it for around 6 months and we are very pleased Its crazy we also get comments on how nice it looks. If we could go back we would buy it again.

Hate this fridge

12/13/2018

Noisy when running. Very inconvenient shelving. Impossible to find a convenient place for a gallon of milk. Light and controls limit what you can store on top shelf. Door doesnt always close. Would return this if I could. Worst fridge I have ever had. Stainless is difficult to keep clean.

No Light in freezer

7/31/2018

We just bought this top freezer unit because everything else was too deep for our small kitchen. We replaced our 15 year old fridge. First thing we noticed was the black box Why? And fully visible steel screws everywhere Then we were REALLY disappointed because the freezer compartment has NO LIGHT WHY?? We went with GE believing it was a top quality brand. The new glass top range looks great but the drawer broke the first day At least the customer service answers calls. We wanted the full suite and decided on GE. It is only OK :

I love it roomy and all is visible.

I love my refridgerator but the only thing I dont like is the bulky part where the light bulb is. I think it could have been made shorter so more big bottles could fit better. Other than that I am so very happy with it.

Okay for a basic fridge

2/13/2018

This was a standard fridge in a new home which we could only upgrade -- we couldnt opt-out of it in order to get our own selection. So now this one is in the garage

Broken down twice in the 1st year

1/29/2018

Brand new fridge installed in our new house in January 2017. Within 2 months we had to have it serviced as it started pouring out water and flooding our kitchen. After 11 months the ice maker stopped working. This fridge is a lemon. I expect a new fridge to work. This one doesnt.

COLD

1/29/2018

I bought it because after Hurricane Maria I needed a new refrigerator as soon as power was brought back. This refrigerator has kept things cold even after the many power surges experience after the hurricane.

Nice look.

1/26/2018

We have been using this refrigerator for about a month now. Its a little louder than our old GE refrigerator of about same size. It has less illumination inside. But it looks very decent overall.

Decent Fridge

1/24/2018

I had to take out the middle shelf because I couldnt stand anything up. Even a gallon of milk wouldnt fit. Also I dont like that the dial for the temp is right in the front because my child keeps messing with it. Freezer is nice and big but the ice just clumps up when its made.
