    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.

    Joshfarmall 9/27/2021

    Gets really hot on outside. Ice maker doesnt make ice. contacted GE about it. Told them im not satisfied and it needs fixed. They acted like its not their problem. My house is full of whirlpool appliances. Never had a single issue with any of them. Buy american made. Dont waste your money on GE's chinese made junk.

    HiJesusSavesU 7/25/2021

    Very reliable and energy efficient. Shelves do not allow for enough tall beverage storage such as many gallons of milk.

    AliDC 7/18/2021

    The refrigerator runs well and i love the ice maker. However, the plastic parts are very cheap and keep breaking. Will not buy again.

    Freezer is large

    AndyBarney 7/4/2021

    Only has controls for fridge cooling. Light keeps us from using the top shelf effectively. No light in freezer.

    Looks good and plenty of room in side.

    Bourke 6/22/2021

    I ordered two appliances, GE Refrigerator Model # GIE21GTHFWW and GE Microwave Model # JNM7196DK6WW, installed 6/4/2021. Microwave was installed properly and operating great, 5 stars no negative issues. Positives for the refrigerator: large storage space in the doors and the refrigerator compartment. Setting the temperature control to the recommended setting, temperatures are perfect. Ice maker works properly. Refrigerator looks good in my small kitchen. Negatives: refrigerator noisier then expected while running, I can live with it. I would have preferred a light in the freezer section and a split and adjustable top shelf in the refrigerator, but I knew it was not available when I ordered, maybe in the future models. I gave the refrigerator 4 stars. Refrigerator required the doors to be reversed, extra cost. After the delivery men left, I noticed the doors were not aligned properly and one of the screws appeared to be stripped or misaligned, poor workmanship by one of the delivery men, not the same person who installed the microwave. I gave the delivery 2 stars. After looking at the warranty, under WHAT IS NOT COVERED: Improper installation, delivery or maintenance, may be used as excuse not to send someone out to adjust the doors. I will call customer service anyway after it has been in operation for about two months, who knows they may send someone.

    Freezer useless

    Marisol_s 5/13/2021

    This fridge only has temperature control for refrigerator and freezer only kicks in when the refrigerator does. Food in freezer gets frost all over no matter how little food you have in there. Can't keep ice cream in the freezer, it's always too soft.
