Rated 3 out of 5Â by Steve Refrigerator good, Freezer good, Icemaker broken
Refrigerator purchased 2/24/12. Works great except we are already on schedule to get our 3rd ice-maker installed this coming Saturday. The first two tend to freeze over, thus causing the arms that would push the ice into the bucket not to be able to do so. The constant pushing against the ice then burns up the motor. Since the same thing happened to each of the first two units, I suspect that this is a fundamental flaw with this product. I'm about ready to tell Home Depot to bring me a different refrigerator in its place.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrsC This fridge is great!
We replaced our old fridge with this GE Adora in the shiny black finish. We love the fridge. The lighting is nice, the shelves and drawers are good. The drawers aren't the greatest when opening and closing. You almost have to jiggle them around to stay on the tracks. It is not a smooth open by any means, but that was not an issue to us. The finish is very hard to keep looking nice. We were told by the delivery person to not use anything except a soft cloth to wipe the exterior (and soapy water only), as the finish scratched very easily. It is as bad as stainless with finger prints and such. It that is not a problem for you, great! It is very quiet and seems very efficient. The ice maker seems to struggle to keep up with us, but my family loves ice.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike Please don't allow other reviews about ice on kitchen floor scare you away from purchase.
I also did A TON of research. I like to over-analyze. I ran into a lot of poor reviews re: the ice maker. For this, and other models.
If one holds their glass properly, the ice will go into the glass. Not on the floor. Remember the ice makers job. To churn and breakdown ice cubes at your request. Remembe the convenience of a single "shoot" for all ice and water... I believe many consumers aren't doing their part. We must hold our glass properly. Do so, and you will be as happy as our family is. And we do not have a towel on the floor.
I also highly recommend the 5yr plan from H.D.
Ask anyone who has recently had repairs done on their refidgerator what they paid in parts/labor. Then do the math.
Enjoy the Adora

Rated 5 out of 5Â by georgesrose Great fridge for the price!
We just got this today and I love it. The delivery men said it would take a day to get to temperature but it was cold enough to freeze ice within an hour! Although we have only had it one day so I cannot speak of it's durability. The LED lights and door alarm are nice perks. As are the humidity setting on the veggie and meat drawers. It is big, just a warning to those who have smaller fridges. We had to remove the cabinet above it because it measures 69 1/2 inches, but I never really cared for the cabinet in the first place. We also have not set up our ice maker or water line yet. The fridge is so large, I went out and bought so much food, and it still has room. The freezer however seems small in comparison. I think it is the ice maker, it just takes up so much room. We may actually remove it to have more room. If you are not big on smudges and have small children, this may not be the fridge for you. The smooth front shows all the marks. We purchased it in black to match our other appliances, and I think it just shows every smudge. Also an FYI to those who are purchasing their first new fridge. It will need to be cleaned upon arrival with hot soapy water to remove the film and stickers from the outside. Also the inside will have some residue from the tape. I must add that I did read in another review that the snack drawer was flimsy and never seems to shut properly. It does seem more difficult to shut than the other two but it really isn't an issue for me. Just needs a wiggle and to slowly be pushed in. All in all I am very happy with my purchase and am glad I splurged a little for the extra snack drawer/size.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jacob Worst Appliance Purchase I Have Ever Had
We purchased this fridge after leaving our last Frigidaire at our last home for the new owners. We had absolutely no problems with it and it was around three years old. We purchased this GE with the hopes that it would be durable as GE is a pretty big name. It has been quite the contrary!!! While I cannot not say that it has stopped working yet, it has had some other problems where I call quality into question. This thing is LOUD!!!! The icemaker is undependable with it sometimes making ice or waiting until it is completely empty, then making ice after I jiggle random parts, Now the door has gone past it's catch and opens wide every time I open the door. I can say that I will not ever purchase a GE refrigerator again and strongly question their other appliances.
