Questions & Answers


How is the ice making capabilities? We use a lot of ice. Is it adequate for a family of four dur...

Asked by nicki July 18, 2020

This is one feature I do not like. The ice maker is small and eats up the door space. My son mows lawns and needs to fill a medium-sized cooler with ice on the days he goes out. The storage does not have enough ice to do that. I have been looking for a container that will slide into the wine rack space to put extra ice in so he can have enough to put in his cooler. My old refrigerator made plenty of ice for our use with a big bucket handy and ready to dump.

Is this made by Samsung for GE Cafe?

Asked by DIYer April 21, 2020

No, it is made in China. From what I've been told it is made by GE's parent company, Haier, and basically rebaged.

Asked by MJB October 23, 2020

Hello MJB - Thank you for the excellent question on this stunning refrigerator. We are always happy to help. As the unit is covered in glass, it will be a breeze to clean. A mild soap such as your dish soap mixed with water and wiped away with a microfiber cloth will work nicely. Keep in touch! - JB

is the photo a problem or is this a design defect with upper 2 doors gap wide vs teh nice clean l...

Asked by DIYer April 21, 2020

No, it is by design. The handles are recessed. On the upper doors they are recessed on the sides, on the lower doors they are recessed on top, hence the large "gap" you see between the upper and lower doors. The "gap" on the side doors is so you can get your hand into the recessed handles.

How does it do with gallons of milk? Will they fit in the door?

Asked by Moreinfoplease September 23, 2020

The right door will hold up to four gallon containers ( mine has two milk and two iced tea). However, all of those jars of relish, ketchup, mustard, sauces, salad dressing, etc. will have to go onto the shelves. If you put the 4 gallon jugs in the fridge (which I have had to do), you have to slide one of the shelves back, and then the gallon jugs are on the edge of the shelf. That also leaves you with just half a shelf above, limiting yourself to two gallon jugs would be one solution.

I get frost in the freezer sometimes. Is this because new items from the store were just added? I...

Asked by MJB October 23, 2020

Hello MJB - Thanks for reaching out about your issue. It is a pleasure to assist with this amazing refrigerator. Adding new food to the freezer could very well cause some frost or ice crystals to form in the freezer. Freezing food will cause moisture to leave the food and collect on the walls or items. Also, keeping the door open or opening it frequently when loading groceries will cause the warm air to form frost. Please let us know if you have any more questions. - JB

Is there an option for side panels? If so please provide a working link!! I have white cabinets would white panels work

Asked by Whatever September 23, 2020

Hello, thank you for your question! Side panels are dealer-exclusive items what would need to be purchased there. In this case, we recommend working with your local Home Depot to purchase side panels for your refrigerator. We hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any additional questions. – CV

Are you going to make this in a counter depth any time soon?

Asked by Brad September 30, 2020

Hi Brad, thanks for your question! At this time, there are no plans to introduce the quad door style refrigerator in a counter-depth model. We apologize for any disappointment that this may bring. We hope that this helps nevertheless. Stay safe. -Michael

Does the freezer and convertible zone have LED light wall or other light?

Asked by Frz July 10, 2020

There is also LED lighting on the bottom of the left-hand refrigerator door, and the bottom of the convertible drawer.

Looks great but doesn’t work
Customer review from logo
Waited 4 months for this fridge to come and it’s full of issues. 1) Shelves came loose and back panel is scratched 2) Doors were completely misaligned by half an inch on the whole left side. Good luck adjusting it - the ones on the upper side are somewhat simple, but on the bottom they mention to use a 9/16 wrench which doesn’t fit the nut (nut is slightly smaller, enough not to fit any wrench). What tool are you using? 3) I’ve had this for 2 to 3 days already and no ice was made on the dispenser. 4) bottom left freezer doesn’t freeze - same temperature as the fridge although the settings are correct to 0 (it liquified my ice cream). the bottom right as a freezer is working though. 5) plastic feet and rollers scratched my new floor! 6) plastic feet are also cheap and tricky to adjust What a waste of my time. Here I go again waiting 3 more months for a part or something else :-(

Fully convertible zone has three different temperature setting of freezer, refrigerator and chiller. Overall this refrigerator's appearance, features, performance, and quality are amazing!

Great features
Customer review from logo
We recently remodeled our kitchen and upgraded appliances. I love the features in this refrigerator. I would give it 5 stars, but the ice maker is the loudest I’ve ever heard and it doesn’t spit ice straight out. So you have to hold your glass just under the dispenser not on the tray.

Overall amazing. The water autofill is so nice and has worked for every type of glass or cup we've tried. The fridge is so beautiful with the backlight and glass doors. It's unlike any other fridge out there. Also the flexibility of making the bottom right door a fridge/beer fridge/freezer at the touch of a button is great.
