Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ash0101 Very nice fridge, very spacious, a bit noisy
This is a beautiful fridge. The lighting and color is just amazing. So far so good, but I do hear the noise previous reviews have mentioned. It sounds like it is over working when you are in a quite kitchen, but not too bothersome as our rooms are far from the fridge. And the new plastic is a pain to remove as it gets stuck in the rubber edges. Average to good buy.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by ericC DO NOT BUY!!!!!
we remodeled the kitchen and replaced fridge, range, microwave and dish washer with this GE line (adora),,.,,,,,exactly 1.3 years after the fridge acted up.... the led's died on me along with the door dispenser and controls ...yes they are dead and I have a dark fridge now I called GE and they asked if I bought the extended warranty?? I didn't because when you buy "quality " you don't expect that ..nevertheless that the manufacturer will ignore this big issue.... I understand extended warranties are a great advantage ....but do you want to buy something that its gonna quit right after the warranty expires? NO that's why I spend a little bit extra and bought this....and if I would of known this junk brand was going to last me only1 year I would of gone with LG
MY LAST GE PURCHASE!!!!

This is replacing a 15 year old side-by-side. It is a little noisier than the old one, but it's really not bothersome. I love the French Door style with the refrigerator on top and freezer on the bottom (less bending). The lighting inside the unit is very sleek. The adjustable shelving very practical. Ice maker doesn't hold as much ice as the old one, but that's only an issue if I'm filling a cooler. Chilled, filtered water in door tastes great. A minor hassle is the protective film on the doors, after two weeks, I'm still pulling off little pieces on the edges.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PleasedWithMyADORA We like our new Adora
I did a lot of research before deciding on the GE Adora 27 cf, reading all of the reviews and recommendations available. We purchased the unit in July and thus far our only issue has been with delivery. Their are alot of nit-picky negatives in reviews that are really not an issue, at least not for us.
The deciding factor for me to purchase the GE over competitor was that it is made in Louisville, KY!
This particular model we chose because:
1) it didn't have alot of computerized extras that weren't necessities and would cost extra to fix.
2) the second ice maker in the freezer. This has turned out to be a very BIG PLUS, VERY GLAD we chose the second ice maker. Opted for the second icemaker based on the ice maker reviews for ALL of the refrigerators, not just GE. Ice makers are not what they used to be. So, when the one in the door breaks, we have a back up. The door ice maker keeps up for normal daily use. It does not make enough though for a 12-pk sized cooler. A few weeks after buying, my 15y.o. broke his collar bone. We went through alot of ice, even emptied the freezer compartment ice maker. It would take a while to make enough extra ice to put in the freezer with just the door unit. It does not make that much ice at one time.
Let me address complaints that others have noted:
Noise: not really an issue. My refrigerator is not built in, it is open on two sides . It does make noise, but not like my 22yr old compressor was making. It makes "whirring" sounds, nothing loud or obnoxious, just different. Sometimes you ask yourself, "what's that", "oh yeah, it's the refirgerator." We live in the country, in a single family home with no extraneous outdoor sounds. I am a light sleeper, this refrigerator is against our bedroom wall and right next to the bedroom door. It has never woken me up.
Ice Maker: Yes, you can hear the ice maker drop ice. Really folks, how long does that last and how often? The door ice maker doesn't jam up, but if it hasn't been used for a few days the ice lightly sticks together and won't dispense. Very easy to fix though. Open the door and give the bin a shake. Not so hard, not an inconvenience. As far as complaints about the ice spitting out and going all over the floor...hold the cup up a little higher and it won't happen.
Shelf height: Again, this hasn't been an issue for us. this unit has one split shelf that we keep slid back. We always have a tall Gallon pitcher of iced tea in the refrigerator and a pitcher of koolaid that fit nicely in front of the shelf (can probably get 2 or 3 2L bottles if you drink that much pop). Gallon jug of milk, juice cartons etc. easily fit under the shelf. On the short shelf, I keep my eggs, sour cream, margarine, the kids gogurt box. I am on the verge of being vertically challenged, sometimes if something small gets shoved to the back of my top shelf, I can't reach it. But I can't reach most of my cabinet shelves either.
Refrigerator temperature: Again, this has not been an issue for us. Our milk goes to the back, it lasts past the expiration date. No problems with other foods molding or spoiling even foods that have been in a few weeks.
Drawers: keeps fruits and veggies nice and fresh. I have the lunch meat and chesse drawer on cold.
Doors: read complaints about needing to close one door before another because of the middle piece. That had to have been a totally different make and model. You can open and close either door in any order. Once you get used to the new refrigerator and have a "layout" of what is where, you will not have to open both doors to see what is where.
Minor issues for me: I get caught trying to multi-task, you cannot dispense ice from left and open right side door at the same time. Sometimes, I wish the bottom drawer were two, so you don't have to open both doors. But then the flexibilty of having a larger drawer would be gone. I have never needed that, but maybe someday I will.
When we received our brand new refrigerator, it had a BIG dent in the top of the ice maker door. Needless to say, we were not very happy (it was 10:30 at night too). How could this get through Quality check? I was on hold a LONG time with Customer Service but each time I spoke with them, they were all very pleasant. After GE service came out to our house, we thought to fix it, but it was just to take a look. New door or new refrigerator? I didn't appreciate having to take another day off work and wait around for the service man. However, it was determined that this happened on delivery with other No explanantion given. I had to drive 1 hour each way back to Home Depot to get the dented unit replaced. Upon the delivery of second unit, found out from a more experienced delivery person: DO NOT take the doors off to get the refrigerator in the house. The handles come off easily and can get through a standard 33" door opening.
The protective plastic film over the SS: the delivery people must take their time removing this. Even though we did, there are still plastic frays at the seals. If you take the handles off, get the plastic film off before they put the handles back on. I wasn't thrilled with the service guys wanting to take a box cutter under the seals to remove the plastic, but where they did, there aren't any frays pieces sticking out.
