Asked by 643ACM September 11, 2020

Hi there - Great question! The depth of this refrigerator with the doors is 36 1/4". We would suggest removing the doors so the refrigerator will fit through your door. The depth without the doors is 29 3/8". Thanks so much for asking! -MikaylaGEA

Asked by Carolyn September 10, 2020

Is it loud?

Asked by Teronr September 1, 2020

Hi Stanzgirl81 - Thanks for viewing GE Model # GFE28GYNFS! While decibel ratings are not available for refrigerator, our French-door refrigerators are designed with as quiet an operation as possible. You should not expect it to be loud while operating. The type of installation (built-in or freestanding), floor type (wood, tile) and room acoustics can all affect the normal operating sounds that you may hear. We’d love to have you in the family. Keep in touch at Sue

Is the water/ice dispenser tall enough to fill a pitcher?

Asked by CE August 31, 2020

Hi CE - Thanks for considering GE! The height of the dispenser may vary due to the recessed part of the ice and water dispenser. The approximate dispenser height is 11" tall from the bottom tray to the dispense point. It can accommodate many mugs, glassware, baby bottles, and sport and water bottles. Keep in touch at Sue

Great appliance
Customer review from logo
It’s the BEST. It works fine and is very spacious. The refrigerator has French doors which adds to its style and has a matte black finish which makes it have the modern style that I was going for.

Plugging and unplugging does not fix it. Rubber door seal molded rather badly, though I was not around when it happened - I just remember the old fridge didn't seem to have that problem. ---- Parents had bought a set of GE appliances when they refreshed the house because GE used to be the best. Now their GE fridge screen is totally unusable, their GE dishwasher leaves almost the dishes still somewhat dirty and vibrates loudly for the first 5 minutes. GE drier smells burny while the lint basket is empty - I've stopped using it for now. No fault with the washer and oven yet, so that's 3 faulty appliances out of 5. Parents have already lost their brand loyalty, and now that I've seen first-hand it's clear why.

French door bottom freezer
Customer review from logo
The refrigerator exceeded my expectations the color is a lot more beautiful up close and in person than on a website. My husband is an appliance tech and the reason for us getting GE is because there’s never big issues with GE and their quality is by far the best.

We just bought this a month ago but 4 years back had bought one as well when we remodeled the kitchen in our old house before we moved. Obviously we enjoyed it at the old house so we replaced all the white kitchen appliances with new GE in the slate color which is a great color. This unit has loads of storage which is so much better than the much smaller white frig it replaced as well as being a French door design which is far more convenient than the side by side white one. The only thing I can say about reliability is that the first one which is about 4 years old now ran perfectly until we sold the house early this year and the new one has been great so far. Highly recommended.

We have this refrigerator in all three of our properties, but the one at our home was/is a lemon, and we can't seem to get GE's warranty repair group to have any sense of urgency to finish the repair. Meanwhile, the food in my freezer is coated in thick coats of ice and frost. (I'm not confident the food is safe to eat.) The ice and water dispenser doesn't work and the french doors don't close well. I love the features of the refrigerator
