          Do Not Buy GE refrigerator Model GWE19JGLTFWW
          After one month began freezing food in the Fresh Compartment. The refrigerator continues to periodically freeze the food in the Fresh Compartment after having it since June 2022. Very poor quality - constantly noisy too. We have wasted several hundreds of dollars in wasted food. Shame on you GE for producing such a sub-standard refrigerator. HGBez

            GE 18.6 cu.ft refrigerator.
            I was a little afraid to get this Frigidaire because of some people saying it was loud. I thought it was a beautiful Frigidaire and had everything I wanted so I took a chance. So far I've had it about a month and still love it! It runs good and very quiet😊 I would definitely recommend it.

              Fabulous Fridge!
              This fridge is wonderful, spacious, and is better than expected! I'm SO glad we put in the time and did weeks of research before landing on this GE. It was important for us that the ice maker wasn't sitting in the fridge area (Apparently this can lead to many problems) This ice maker is located in the freezer, and the water is inside the fridge. It can sound like a draining dishwasher when it cycles, but it's not bothersome at all. SO happy with this purchase.

                Do not buy this refrigerator!
                I do not recommend this refrigerator!! I didn't even have it a month and frost built up in freezer and refrigerator. Contacted warranty 2x. Then after 2nd time worked for about 3 months and now the same issue. Bought June 7, 2023 and today is Feb. 17, 2024. It's worked correctly for probably 3 months and that's after the 2nd repair Nov.13, 2023! Not going for a 3rd it's a piece of junk. Don't buy or cancel your order.

                  Fits our life

                    Multiple problems, poor warranty service
                    Where do I start? First of all, the installation was rushed, the doors on the refrigerator would not stay in place and appeared to be uneven even though the rest of the appliance was level. Then after 3 months the ice maker broke. Dealing with GE for warranty repair since HD only gives you 24 hours to say if you want it or not has put me in a living nightmare. Skip this and all GE products.

                      Great Fridge!!!!
                      Fridge fit perfect in kitchen space! It has plenty of room and lots of features. EG did not disappoint with this fridge! The exceeded my expectations. If you’re thinking about getting this fridge I say get it!
                        Good Refrigerator for Small Spaces
                        The refrigerator is perfect if you have a small kitchen and you can’t fit a big refrigerator and/or you live in a one/two person household. I really like the look of the refrigerator and it cleans easily. The inside is nice, but space is somewhat limited. We had to remove a shelf to fit a taller bottle and pitcher. If you freeze a lot of meat, space could be an issue. Overall, I like the refrigerator and I’m glad we bought it because it fits our needs.

                            Forms ice and spoil food
                            I purchased this refrigerator in June. Having trouble since getting. Per the technician some parts are damaged and he has ordered replacement. Not sure when they will come. Really disappointed with this refrigerator. I spoke with Homedepot customer service and she said they can’t do anything to help.
