Customer Questions & Answers

Do you need a hot and cold water line for the water dispenser (for hot and cold)?

Do you need a hot and cold water line for the water dispenser (for hot and cold)?
Asked by: Bridget
Hello Bridget - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and we are happy to help you. The refrigerator should only be hooked up to the cold water line. The water is heated for the hot water heater. We hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

Does it matter which door (left vs right) is closed first?

Seems like it doesn't get a good seal if I close the left after the right, or only access the inside via the left door
Asked by: mmphill
We havent found any difference which door is closed first. Be carefull if any stored items are on right door shelves (tall bottles) that may lean toward center as you close

Just purchased but seems louder

I'm a bit surprised I hear this as it's a bit loud. I replaced it w/ a 5 y/o side by side as we just upgraded w/ all Cafe appliances. Wondering if this is supposed to be as loud as I am hearing.
Asked by: nj888
We bought ours with the house being constructed so cannot return it. It sits next to a wall behind which is my mothers bed headboard. She is unable to sleep well because all night long she is subjected to "hmmmmm, hmmmmmm, hmmmmmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmmmmm, hmmmmm, hmmmmm". I called for repair but they said this is normal because of the high efficiency compressor and I just have to live with it. Might just throw it out and buy something else since we cannot return it.

Customer Reviews

27.8 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with Hot Water is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 356.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent functionality and features We bought this refrigerator approximately one month ago and love the features it has. I have not seen a hot water dispenser on any other refrigerator and it precisely measures. It is very spacious and can accommodate all of our groceries and we still have plenty of additional space remaining. It even hooks up to our home automation system via a ge wireless plugin module and will send us an alert if our power was off for an extended period of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fridge! I love everything about this refrigerator. The interior is brightly lit and the temp select on the "pizza drawer" is great for defrosting meats. The freezer is huge! The ice & water dispenser is pretty cool. I haven't used the hot water function, but the Precise Fill feature is very handy. I was amazed that it only uses 100-110 watts to run!

I noticed water was dripping from the ice dispenser (ice melting) and the food was getting warm. Now we have to wait 3 days for the repair and lost a fridge full of food. This was really not worth the extra features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor is very noisy Had this installed yesterday.. I can hear it running in the bedroom across the house. Hopefully GE can fix this problem otherwise it will be a costly mistake... Really thought CAFE would be an upgrade from my older fridge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator that Matches My Other Appliance Would have liked to see the auto fill feature plus the measured feature on this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't buy Thus is my 4th service call in 6 months. Please you will save money not buying this fridge. Because you will not lose food due to fan going out which is a known problem with this model. 3 different fan motors and 1 circuit board in 6 month not to mention the 900 worth of food constantly waste thinking it fix after repairman leaves. 3 grand and can only buy what we can use in a couple of days. Person over the phone in customer service told me buy a cooler and put ice in it. Customer relations told me to buy a mini fridge and use. I told both of them I did not spend 3k to buy a mini fridge or cooler. Great company and customer service. Better off buying used and save the rest just not a ge. Never again

We purchased GE Cafe with the expectation that their reputation and quality would be worth the investment. Shortly after our 1-year warranty expired, the stainless started peeling off of our bottom freezer drawer. In all, we purchased 6 high end GE appliances and 4 have broken in 18 months. Our customer service experience was very poor and disheartening. Don't waste your hard earned money, it will break. Beware!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay far, far away! We upgraded to this refrigerator when we decided on our interior options with our builder. I noticed that it wasn't working during our final walk-thru immediately before closing. It had a bad compressor. They wanted to fix it but we demanded a replacement because it had been leaking oil while it was running and we were afraid it had sucked some in. the replacement was unpackaged and plugged in, the touch screen didn't work so we can't use half the functions of the refrigerator. It's been a month and despite the time and energy we've spent going round and round with GE, we still do not have a fully functional refrigerator. Stay away from GE - their products lack quality and their service is even worse than their quality!
