Customer Reviews

26.3 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Slate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I did a lot of research on refrigerators and read many, many reviews before settling on this make and model. My house is a summer house and seasonal rental so I opted not to get the front water/ice dispenser to cut down on things that can go wrong. The refrigerator is large sized, and a nice internal layout. I chose the split doors, bottom freezer as that is what I have at my other house and wonder why people continue to chose top freezer models. This thing looks and works perfectly. I also got a great deal from Home Depot. The only negative with the stainless steel model is the handles always looks smudged. They do clean up nice with one of those stainless steel wipe clothes but be prepared to have smudged handles on it. This is especially true for me with small kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from over all love it only thing that is driving me crazy in the plastic that they use on the doors, still trying to peel it off 1 month later anyone have any ideas how to get it off. What they do in put it on before it is put together so in is stuck inside the seals. Other then that it is a great refrigerator!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent fridge with cheap parts and poor customer service the fridge overall is decent. lots of storage and great use of compartments. BUT, with less than 6 months of owning the fridge something broke not allowing for the left door to open or close. Called GE customer service and they immediately scheduled an appointment. The day before the appointment received a call from the technician who refused to come out to see what was broken. He insisted he knew what was wrong and ordered the part. The part arrived one week later and another technician came in and discovered that there were two parts actually we have to wait yet another week to get the fridge fixed. Again, all of this could have been avoided if the first technician just did his job...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So 'not-stainless steel'!! It's regrettable that GE is no longer making this fridge. I'm one of those folks that HATE stainless steel (notwithstanding it's inherent qualities). I have this fridge plus the stove that comes in the same color (from GE). I've received more compliments on these appliances that ever in terms of aesthetic, style, and look. The slade color is just stunning. I'm thinking that some folks have called this 'black' stainless steel (given it's lack of silver/chrome color). In terms of performance; I've never had a problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great space and look poor manufacturing I would agree with everyone that has posted a positive comment about the look and space that this refridgerator offers, however, the manufacturing of the product could use some review and tweaking. We are currently expecting the delivery of fridge #6 tomorrow morning because the previous 5 have all had manufacturing defects. The "waves" on the sides because of the lack of insulation or poor production has varied each time and there has been paint missing on the sides of the fridge because it hasn't had the proper amount of time to dry before being moved or boxed. The biggest concern has been with the right hand door hinge. The door at the very top right corner has too much insulation in it causing it to push again the hinge which is screwed in at an angle because the screw holes that were drilled aren't drilled straight down. After purchasing a new home and needing all 6 appliances #fridge, dishwasher, range, microwave, washer, and dryer# we went with all GE. The dishwasher is amazing and the range is great, even the washer and dryer can't be beat but I really think GE needs to look at their production of this new fridge that they recently released. Even the stores floor model where we purchased the fridge has the same defects that we are experiencing with each delivery at our home! I said no for the recommendation as of current until these issues can be fixed, if they were this would make an amazing fridge with great space and a great look!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GNE26GMDES Overall this product is great so far with one exception which I will get to. The color, slate, works well with almost any decor while the stainless handles tie in with other appliances in the room. It has plenty of room up top and the freezer is OK. Now to the one problem. This thing is NOISEY! It is much louder than the dishwasher by the same manufacturer. We have an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and we can hear the motor in all the common rooms. Would I recommend? Yes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator Great refrigerator, we are not sure why this model is discontinued. Great design, super nice touches with chrome . Works really nice. Is just the right size. Plenty big for anything but not too big to get in the door. Ice and water in the door just takes up too much space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loads of food cargo space and plenty of light! We just purchased this GE product and we love it!  This refrigerator conveniently holds a lot more food than our old side by side model.  No more trying to fit everything in on small single shelves.  The pull out bottom freezer is the perfect size.  The lighting is very bright, so it is easy to find things and having the temperature settings on the door is a helpful reminder.  We like the option of the door alarm.  Excellent quality for the money.  Hands down the best refrigerator we've had to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice! I bought this on October 20th, 2013.  I bought the frig, dishwasher, gas range and over range microwave all in slate.  I really love the color of these appliances.  I read all the reviews about noise and hard to peel off protective plastic.   The frig was somewhat noisy at first ( about the first 6 hours ) but then it quieted down to what I consider a reasonable sound.  I too, like some other reviewers have an open floor plan and used to could not run my dishwasher while watching TV.  The frig is just a slight bit louder than my old one ( 14 years old ) but nothing distracting.  I think some of the other reviews didn't give it enough time initially to cool down completely.  I love this frig. As for the protective coating...I suggest you DO NOT let your delivery man remove it.  First one delivered they dented door and went ahead and removed film and did a lousy job because they were in a hurry.  Second one we took off plastic and took our time and it came off just fine.  The only recommendation I would have is that the inner large frig drawer at bottom of top section was split in two so you wouldn't have to open both doors to access stuff in this larger drawer.  I don't know that I would ever have anything that would take up the entire width of the frig.   So to sum up...Love the frig after just a week and would definitely recommend to others!  Color is awesome and really makes our kitchen appear more upscale!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant desiign We were looking for months to find a GE Refrigerator/Freezer with this design and finally found one that had been on floor display. The French Door is ideal for us and is proving it was worth the wait and effort to find it. There is plenty of space above and below which stores enough food and perishables for the four adults in our family. The unit is energy efficient and runs very quiet. There is adequate lighting in the two compartments; has digital numbers in the lead edge of the upper door to show temperatures separate for refrigerator and freezer; and an appropriate alarm that sounds if a compartment has been left open longer than a predetermined time. We are enjoying it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 7 WEEKS Loved the fridge, until it started dying for no reason. GE came twice to replace the mother board...Didn't work. Now I'm waiting for them to come a 3rd time. Meanwhile my family of 5 are living out of 2 coolers for the past week. Their tech's are a joke, they have no idea what's wrong, but wont replace it. Never will I buy GE again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This refrigerator has alot of room works great for our family. Beautiful refrigerator- so many of the reviews talk about hard to keep the outside clean-it is stainless steel that is one of the cons of any stainless appliance. Yes, you will have to clean it more often but I have been wiping it down with a cloth with water on it and then wipe it dry and it works great. We don't have the water connected so as far as anything regarding that I wouldn't don 't have an opinion. I am not happy with the little bit of paperwork you receive on this appliance. That's why I don't understand the drop down dairy compartment tray. I have it as the picture shows but I don't understand the purpose of it. I have never had the bottom freezer- I like that feature alot. Overall very happy with this purchase. I do agree the plastic covering it is a pain to get off. I pulled out the rubber gasket around all of it and cut the plastic off with a razor blade- this worked good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Take care! Plastic protective coating is almost impossible to remove! This is a huge refrigerator. It has nice styling and storage, but even though it is "energy efficient" there is a lot of room to keep cool. I returned mine because after spending hours trying to remove the protective coating it was still stuck under the handles and all around the rubber gaskets. GE was less than helpfull, offering advice to use tweezers and dish soap, and to remove the handles ourselves to get the plastic out from under them. I don't think so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over all great product. Considered similar major brands but choose this based on reviews and style and we are glad we did. Interior is sturdy and user friendly. Lighting is excellent. Quite ice machine that makes lots of ice. We would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Fridge works great, my only complaint is I cannot get one that isn't damaged..I have had 3 delivered from Depot and they all have had some sort of scratch or ding on them. Am now dealing directly with GE to replace the damaged door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great appliance! So far our new refrigerator is working nicely. It has so much storage space which is set up efficiently. The freezer has nice storage too, with 2 pull-out drawers so you don't have to stack things on top of one another too much. Love the digital display inside the door to let me know the exact temp of both freezer and fridge. The door alarm is great too, when the kids forget to shut the door completely. Everyone that has seen it loves the new slate finish. The only fingerprints are on the stainless steel handles which are pretty easy to clean up. So glad we didn't go with stainless appliances. The slate is wonderful and very upscale looking. The only issue I have with this appliance is the whole thing tends to roll forward when you try to open the freezer door. I'll have to look into how to lock the wheels or put a little something in front of them to keep fridge in place. When you do need to move unit, it slides so easily - another great feature. We did not get the ice maker/water filter version so we have more space inside the fridge which I love. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very noisy, poor quality We loved the new slate color and bought 4 appliance including this fridge. Unfortunately we have had many issues with the quality of it including insulation pouring out of the door seams, detached and ripped gasket and mainly French documentation included with no helpful English material. On top of it all it is a VERY loud running fridge. It has become a complete nuisance listening to all the time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice when it works.............. I bought this refrigerator at the end of September 2014. I love it, when it works. Since then, I have had to have the circulation fan motor in the refrigerator part replaced 4 times. When it quits, the refrigerator stops working but the freezer still works. Now that I am coming off my 1 year warranty, GE wants me to buy an "extended" warranty, FAT CHANCE. I am sick and tired of this same motor/fan failing EVERY 3 months or so. A very poorly designed piece of equipment. If it happens again, I will demand replacement of this unit under the "lemon law". GE, get your stuff together and get this, continual, problem resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial fit,finish and function is right on target! After the pain of removing the protective door film from the corners of the exterior doors[I think you guys put the film on first to protect finish during assembly] rest was easy. I miss the manuel,the quick start instructionsdidn't tell you how to turn the icemaker on. Yes!, I found the complete manuel online,so I guess I can't missplace it. One thing I would like is faster ice production,but it is to spec. in the Troubleshooting guide on line. I have yet to be dissapionted in any GE product purchased. Thanks, Rick

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, works well, but noisy. Tons of space with features that are actually useful, not just gimmicks. However, when the condenser kicks on (which is often) it makes an incredibly annoying high pitched buzz for several minutes and when it turns off, there's a series of clunks. Everything appears to run well, but it is not an enjoyable machine to run running nearby if you spend a lot of time in your kitchen or have an open concept living area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart looking and lots of usable space. I really like the French doors, but I would change the pull out meat drawer to 2 pull out meat drawers. Both of the doors have to be open to pull that drawer out. I was delighted that I could purchase a refrigerator that did not have ice and water on the outside of the door. The lighting is bright and inviting when you open the door and all contents are easy to see. The large bins on the doors in very convenient for cartons of milk and tall juice containers.  I do find the refrigerator to be a bit noisy when it is running, but I and sure that with time we will become accustomed to the new sound. I also find that  the plastic is hard to remove. It appears that some of the plastic was put on before the assembly process. This refrigerator has replaced a side-by-side that we really and truly did never like! The freezer on the bottom is the way to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Side by side replacement I bought this to replace a side by side which did not have a water dispenser and I did not want a water dispenser. In general the refrigerator is satisfactory. It is noisier -- it makes weird buzzing noise periodically and loud hum when refrigerator is on which can be heard in adjacent rooms. Both doors need to be opened to take item from meat bin/tray -- this should be two drawers, not one. The pros are the tilt push back shelf for tall bottles and adjustable door bins. It would good to have two condiment bins, instead of one. A major complaint is difficulty of removing protective plastic which is almost impossible to remove, even with tweezers. It appears that plastic was put on refrigerator prior to assembly so plastic is firmly imbedded where pieces join. Since I can't get it all removed, bits of plastic remain which detracts from the appearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice and functional This refrigerator looks great in our kitchen and is very spacious. The water lines were very easy to hook up and the digital temp, gauge lets you know what the exact temp is. The price is higher then I would normally pay for an appliance but I am really glad we decided to buy it. This refrigerator really adds a nice look to our kitchen. I would recommend this appliance to all of my friends. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
