Feeling ripped off
The icemaker drips water into the ice bin and freezes the cubes into big blocks. The GE repair specialist came to the house and said that is normal for the GE Cafe refrigerator. I have a GE Profile fridge that is 20 years old and it doesn't do this.

      Cafe Refrigerator
      Room, Room at last! It’s now easier to make an antipasto tray and fit it on a shelf without having to stack other items on the top of it. The shelves are nice and wide. Before we would have to stack pizza slices on top of each other. Now we place the whole pizza box in the fridge.

      We're speechless! But we'll try to find the words anyway, your kitchen is gorgeous! White with bronze accents is exactly what this refrigerator was made for, and we spotted a Cafe range and dishwasher as well. Throw pasta and pizza in the mix and you're throwing the perfect dinner party. Enjoy! - John@Cafe

        Big and Beautiful but issues
        Lights are going out after 3 years. Poor quality design on the water pull out tray. Impossible to clean the top of the veggie drawer or the fruit drawer.

          Beautiful and Big but...
          This fridge is huge and beautiful. I love the hot water feature (however you can only get 10oz per 3 to 4 minutes). I love the huge water space to fill my large water bottles. Unfortunately, the water tray piece is rather flimsy/cheap quality given the price tag and seems to be coming loose on the left corner. The fridge is impossible to fully clean and the veggies and fruit drawers don't come all the way out. I have a nasty type of mold growing at the top of the veggie drawer, which I can see looking into my fridge but I cannot access to clean. Also after only 3 years, the interior lights have been flickering and one or two is out and the fridge is so much darker now. I am looking for a new light and do not see one. So although this fridge is Big and Beautiful, I would not recommend it due to the inability to clean above the drawers, and loosing some lighting within 3 years, which is terrible, because the wonderful lighting was a huge draw to me and the flimsy water tray.

            Don’t buy unless you love repair men at you house
            Do not purchase unless you want to feel like the repair guy is a member of your family because he is at your home so often. Issues with fridge sounding like a plane it gets so loud when fans go bad. We replaced upper fan 4 x, lower fan in freezer 1x, replaced main computer board twice, thermostat replaced twice, tower replaced, and is now leaking puddles of water all over our floor, has frozen food in fridge that we had to toss out, has made extremely pound sounds often.

            Oh no! We absolutely hate to hear about the trouble you have had with this refrigerator over the years and certainly would not expect something like this to happen. We completely understand your frustration at the ordeal you have been through but happy you have reached out. We found the email you sent us and a case manager has left you a voicemail and sent an email to help with this. We have also updated them with your comments and pictures here. Thanks so much. - John@GEA
              Huge and gorgeous.
              Great looking and performs well. I would have preferred a finger print resistant finish but that was not available.

                  Love this refrigerator!
                  I researched quite a long time for a fridge to replace a frigidaire gallery side by side that two control panels went out after almost 20 yrs. At first, I wanted the clean lines without the ice and water dispenser in the door, but after looking at models in the store, we realized that would not work for us. Also, I had specific cabinet surround measurements for the height requirement on a new one. Kitchenaid and Bosch were too tall so we settled on this Cafe with Keurig cabinet depth model. Of course, it was not in stock anywhere! After almost a month of waiting to order, and then 3 weeks for delivery, it finally arrived! The pros: beautiful with the round pro handles, french doors can be opened separately, holds more than the old side by side, very quiet, wifi was a breeze to connect after downloading app, so easy to ask Alexa to start heating hot water for my coffee! Also uploaded pics for a slideshow! The cons: the protective film was a beast to remove, but that’s not really a refrigerator con, and also wish it had the fingerprint resistant stainless.

                    Exactly the size and refrigirator space we needed!
                    We waited for our Cafe ref for 3 months before it was finally delivered. The wait is well worth it! It paired well with our Cafe Double oven. The refrigirator & freezer space it provided was exactly the amount of space we needed for our family of 5. The biggest plus is it definitely looks good!
