Questions & Answers


Where is the thermostat on a Adora refrigerator

Asked by Hondo September 8, 2020

If you have the model with the touch panel, the thermostat controls are on the Freezer and Fridge buttons. Touching either button once will display the therm settings. You can raise or lower the temp for each one by pressing the buttons. It also tells you how to activate Turbo Freeze and Turbo Chill.

Asked by Amy July 15, 2020

Hi Amy, thanks for reaching out. We're sorry to hear about your gasket. We would recommend inspecting the gasket for any tears or damage. If you find any, the gasket would need to be replaced to make sure that no cold air is escaping from your freezer. We would also recommend to clean your gasket as this may help too. Also check to make sure that the gasket is fully seated into the door. If part of it is loose, this may be why you're seeing it come off with a door opening. If you continue to have issues, we would recommend a service appointment to have this issue further investigated. We hope that this helps! Stay safe.

The large bottom drawer in the refrigerator is freezing my food. Is there an adjustment I can try?

Asked by Sally May 15, 2020

Hi Sally - Oh no! Thanks for reaching out to us. We are sorry to hear items in the lower drawer are freezing and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. This model has a Climate Zone drawer, which does not allow you to change the temperature. It provides a different humidity level than the rest of the refrigerator. First, check the controls to make sure the refrigerator is set to the proper temperature. We suggest 37 degrees Fahrenheit for the refrigerator and 0 degrees Fahrenheit for the freezer. Food load is an important factor. The drawers and compartment should ideally be 1/2 full or more. Freezing occurs when the refrigerator does not have enough food to absorb the cold air. If the refrigerator temperature sensor is blocked, it may not be able to correctly sense temperature to control cooling. The temperature sensor is located at the top of the refrigerator, on the ceiling above the top shelf. The sensor looks like a dome with slats. Move items so there is 6 inches of clearance around the sensor. If this does not help, service may be required. For service, please schedule an appointment with GE Appliances Factory Service at GEAppliances.com. We hope this is helpful. Keep in touch! Sue

Changed water filter now won’t get ice or water

Asked by Gah April 21, 2020

Hi Gah - Thanks for reaching out to us! We are sorry to hear your refrigerator is not providing water/ice after a filter change. The dispenser may be locked. Press Lock pad on the exterior control panel and hold 3 seconds to lock/unlock. After replacing your filter, air may be trapped in the water system. Press the dispenser arm for at least 5 minutes. To check whether you have a clogged/defective filter, remove the filter and install the filter bypass plug in its place. Take a look at the following links - REFRIGERATOR - NOT GETTING WATER FROM THE DISPENSER: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=39514 - REFRIGERATOR – RPWFE OPERATION AND TROUBLESHOOTING: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=19693 - We hope this is helpful.

How do you set the settings

Asked by And20rew04 April 7, 2020

Hi And20rew04 - Thanks for reaching out to us and for choosing GE. We are sorry to hear the refrigerator is not working and we're happy to provide instructions for setting the temperatures. The temperature adjustment only goes one direction. When you keep pressing the Fridge or Freezer pad, the temperature setting will go up until it reaches the maximum limit and then starts over at the lowest limit. The ranges for the Fresh food section on most models is 34°F to 42°F; the range for the Freezer section on most models is -6°F to 5°F. We suggest viewing a video at this link: https://youtu.be/d2l6J456OJ4 - Also, here's the link to the Use and Care Manual: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/9c/9cef608c-1fd8-4bb7-a207-fbccb024af6b.pdf - We hope this is helpful.

I like how quietly it runs and the spaciousness of the freezer and chill sections. Beautiful exterior and spacious interior. Downside: because it's oversized, it doesn't easily fit through a standard door opening (36-inch).

First off, while this is a GE model sold exclusively by Home Depot, it's just a regular GE French Door fridge but with a couple of features found on more expensive models. It might be a simple thing but my we love the Quick Space shelf that slides in so you can fit tall pitchers or bottles on the shelf below it. That solved one of our major storage problems since we have a pitcher of fruit juice and a pitcher of orange juice easily sitting side by side on the shelf. A gallon jug of milk which we used to have to squeeze beside the two pitchers in our old fridge now sits on a wide door shelf. We also got the Auto Fill water dispenser feature which overall works pretty good. We also got the fancy shmancy Showcase LED lighting which looks beautiful but the light bulbs can only be changed by a GE tech on a home visit. But that's where our extended warranty comes in so we won't have to pay out of pocket for it. Only about a week in of using it after delivery. We really like this fridge but there's a slight learning curve. Overall Auto Fill works great but its sensor can get confused by the container set under it, with our without ice. We've seen the error message a few times, and it's shown complete after filling a small cardboard drinking up about halfway, I also learned that when using the ice dispenser to have a glass directly under the dispenser otherwise ice cubes or crushed ices shoots everywhere onto the floor. But overall these features work great, and I like the light the turns on when using the dispenser. When the fridge was first delivered we were confused because only the front was stainless steel and the sides slate. I looked again at the online photos and sure enough, the sides were slate. My wife doesn't mind because, as the delivery explained it, magnets can stick to slate but not to stainless steel and she has a lot of photos and and other magnetized stuff already covering both sides. Our fridge isn't loud at all, and I rarely see an extra drop of water from the dispenser. I just hold the glass under it until the water flow shuts off. But two minor quibbles: while the touch screen on the door displays the fridge and freezer temps, I don't know if those readings are accurate. I think those are just the settings for each compartment and not what the temps actually are. We use the Turbo Cool feature just to make sure the fridge temp remains below 40 degrees. The bottom freezer is more than cold enough so we haven't used Turbo Freeze yet. The other quibble is with the Open Door Alarm. I think it's a great feature but after a grocery shopping trip where we've got the door open to load food into the fridge and freezer, the alarm becomes so annoying I shut and leave it off. Quibbles aside, this remains the best fridge we've ever owned. It's large enough to more than suit our needs. And it's quiet. From our family room next to the kitchen, the only noise we hear is ice cubes dropping into the ice basket on the door. We chose not to get the 2nd icemaker so we could take advantage of all the storage space in the freezer drawer,.

Fridge is amazing. The only bad thing is the picture online. The handles look black to me. When I got the fridge, the handles were not even close to black. Almost a darker bronze color. One handle was labeled "Black SS" so I thought that I got the wrong handles. I went to the local Home Depot store and they stated that I had the correct handles. Black slate has the different colored handles, I guess. So ended up sticking with the "wrong" handles because you cannot buy handles separately. The fridge is great other than the handles situation.

We are pleasantly pleased. Had it about 2months.We really enjoy the features this fridge comes with. It has plenty of room and the color is great. It cleans up nicely too. The lighting is nice and not blaring. 1. Autofill - so convenient and the fact that the tray come out to support larger items like a pot. 2. The filter - It filters out pharmaceuticals! And I don't get the calcium white stuff floating around when the ice melts. I do wish the shelves on the left were a bit bigger. And the only thing that is annoying is protection package (green) didn't completely get removed. Overall we love it better than our LG!

So far so good. Noise level not bothersome to us. Auto water dispenser a little finicky. Can’t do water bottles with small opening. Glasses are a little inconsistent where it stops filling. Ice and water come out faster than our old Samsung. The lower refrigerator drawer requires both doors open. Past GE service on other appliances has been very good.

Reviewer- Family of 5. DON'T RECOMMEND! GE water filter required to keep water working. Costs $50 per filter. Forces you to replace every 6 mo or 300 gal. Ice maker might be good enough for 1 person at best. Pros- good usable space, looks nice, good balance of freezer space. Cons- Ice maker is a joke. water filter will cost you $50 per 6 mo. If you don't change it with GE filter, water will not work!

Adora - DFE28JBLTS
it cools as it should and looks nice Refrigerator is much louder than other refrigerators we have owned and finish is not durable as shown in the picture - where the door barely touched a wall within 30 min of installation. if it had been a scrape I would understand but this was a light touch. first filter lasted 1 month and is proprietary so no options on filters. The ice maker option in the bottom freezer is very nice touch. lighting could be a bit brighter. water sensing feature on dispenser is nice. color matches out ge stove.
