Questions & Answers


For those that have this fridge in your home, do you find that the stainless really is fingerprin...

Asked by sweetpeppergirl February 19, 2021

No, it is not. It shows every print. My previous Kenmore was fingerprint resistant and it truly was in comparison to this.

Can I get it in white color

Asked by tater February 16, 2021

Hi Tater, thanks for your question! This model only comes in Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel and Slate, we're sorry about that. However, we found a similar model that comes in white if you'd like to take a look. You can search the following model number to view it: GNE27JGMWW. We do not have white french door refrigerators with the Made in America seal, we apologize about that! Hope this helps though. Stay safe. -Michael@GEA

Asked by Joe February 16, 2021

There is no ice dispenser, but there is an ice maker easily accessible in the freezer drawer.

How fast will the Ice Maker Cycle from empty bin to full ?

Asked by Bluenail January 25, 2021

Hi Bluenail - Thanks for reaching out to us! We truly appreciate your interest in this French-door refrigerator and are happy to offer you some guidance in the icemaker. Ice production can vary depending on different factors such as freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, and number of door openings. However, this refrigerator's icemaker is designed to produce seven cubes per cycle, which will result in approximately 100–130 cubes in a 24-hour period. When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice. We hope that this information is helpful for you! -Eliza@GEA

Does the stainless still model dispense Ice? It is odd for fridge not to have an icemaker. Also...

Asked by kathy January 24, 2021

Hello Kathy - Thank you for your curiosity in our refrigerators. We're happy to help in any way we can. Model GNE29GMKES comes with an ice maker installed in the freezer but does not have a dispenser in the door. The finish is slate, a low-gloss matte metallic paint finish that easily complements other appliances. It resists fingerprints and doesn't show dirt. If you have questions about any other model, please let us know what model number you are interested in. Keep in touch! - John@GEAppliances

I plan to put this refrigerator near to a side wall. How much space do I need to allow between t...

Asked by spacesaver December 4, 2020

Hi there! Wonderful question, we'd be more than happy to help you out! The minimum distance between the side of the case and the wall, in either direction, to allow doors to open fully is 16 3/8". This will allow the doors to open fully and for the drawers to be removed for cleaning. We hope that this helps and that you're staying safe! -Michael@GEA

2 service calls..still doesn't cool or freeze. Tired of losing food.

Asked by james December 4, 2020

Hi James! We're so sorry to hear that you've had a difficult time getting your unit repaired! Please feel free to send us an email or reach out to us on social media with your service confirmation numbers, we'd like to review those for you. Hope to hear from you soon! -Michael@GEA

How fast does this model make ice?

Asked by Karren November 22, 2020

the freezer has an automatic ice maker. tray is always full

what water filter for this refrigerator

Asked by bill November 8, 2020

Hi Bill. This is an excellent question that we're happy to answer. Thanks for reaching out! There actually is no water filter for this refrigerator. Because there is no water dispenser in this unit, the filter in this model is used only for ice production. We hope this is useful! If you have any other questions, you can reach out to us via e-mail through the Contact Us page on our website and a member of our team will be glad to help. - Guy@GEA

We installed a soft water system, therefore the water is filtered throughout the whole house. I'...

Asked by EC October 31, 2020

Hi EC. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us. This is an excellent question that we're happy to assist with. If someone's refrigerator isn't dispensing ice as it should, a dirty filter is one of the potential causes. So, making sure the filter is changed every 6 months is a recommendation. Because your water is being filtered beforehand, this should not be an issue. If you have any other questions, you can reach out to us via e-mail through the Contact Us page on our website and a member of our team will be glad to help. - Guy@GEA

Easy access at eye level.
Great access even into lower freezer compartment. Solid feel, well built.

What a Beauty!
Just had this beauty delivered! Can’t wait to test this out!
Shoddy workmanship
Love the style, look, and features, but the construction seems very shoddy. Not what I expected from GE when the refrigerator this one replaced was a 32 year old GE fridge that was still working well. The insulation on this new one is poking out in a number of places. The appliance store has ordered me a new left door because it is so unsightly from the front. Very disappointed because overall the product seems good.
by Cathy 49
Response from GE_AppliancesJan 21, 2021
Hi Cathy 49 - Thanks for sharing your feedback. We're delighted to hear you love the appearance and features of your refrigerator. We'll be sure and pass along your comments about the insulation issue to our refrigerator design team. They review these on a regular basis as an ongoing commitment to improve quality. We hope you receive the left replacement door soon. Best wishes! - Sharon@GEA
Great internal size for price & outside size.
The plastic overall covering is a bear to get off.
by Coyboy
Love the color
This is the last piece that we needed to complete our kitchen. We have had the other GE slate appliances for 5 years and just purchased the refrigerator. Very happy with look and performance of our GE appliances.
by Renobe20
What a fridge
We have owned this fridge for about a month now! Pros:: Evenly cold, spacious, doors fit so many condiments. Love the door alarm because of my three young kiddos. Deli/cheese drawer is easily accessible to my children and spacious. Con:: the freezer literally is half full and is a pain to open! For many years I was against a freezer on the bottom but it seems that’s what’s mostly available now a days!
by Mir mir 88
Love the look and size
The refrigerator is new so I can’t give a longevity review. It’s very spacious inside and I love the freezer on the bottom.

I have purchased multiple GE products throughout the years. I purchased the refrigerator May 5, 2020 and in 1 week the freezer handle came off. I was in disbelief. The handle is not screwed on, it just clicks in place.
