Nice refrig but....
from Chester County, PA, United States
Comments about GE Cafe 23.1 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel:
Renovated kitchen - bought GE Cafe Nov 2014 - not too happy with it since ice gets stuck in the bin, constantly taking it out and removing clumped ice. Thought maybe since I didn't use ice in winter months but same issue during summer and I use ice on regular basis. The Loud Noise from the refrig is annoying - this started about 6 months after purchase. Noise stops when door is opened, but starts up again when closed. During the day, I will open and close door just to stop annoying sound. This was an expensive appliance and it doesn't live up to its name!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Noisy, unreliable, and bad warranty
from Redwood City, CA, United States
GE appliances have really gone downhill. I've had several GE Profile refrigerators in the past with no problems until this one. From day 1, this refrigerator is much louder than any other one I've had. The hot water feature is completely useless since it takes a really long time to heat up and only makes a very small cup of hot water. The second cup doesn't take as long but who wants to wait 20 minutes for 2 small cups of hot water? So we never end up using this feature at all. Now, 1 year and 4 months after install, the freezer stopped working due to a faulty freezer fan and the GE technician says this isn't covered under the 5 year limited warranty for the sealed refrigeration system. According to the diagnostic tool the technician used, the refrigerator fan is about to die as well but due to a massive number of these failing, GE is replacing them free of charge but not officially calling it a recall. With all the known issues with the GE Cafe fans, you'd expect that the freezer fan would be covered as well but it isn't and will have to be repaired at my cost. How does that even make sense? With the high cost of the GE Cafes, you'd think GE would stand behind their products and warranty. Instead, they've discontinued this model and have left their existing loyal customers holding the bag. Beware of buying any GE refrigerators unless you want it to break just after the 1-year warranty ends. They just don't make them like they used to.
Great Model for our home!
This model is attractive and has plenty of space for our family. Enjoy the design and excellent service we've received from GE.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
BEST I'VE EVER OWNED
This is the best refrigerator I've ever owned. Performance is great. The features are all that I could ever want. It's not too big and not too small. I enjoy everything about this appliance. Thanks, GE!
Like the function of the inside
from Arizona, United States
Within the last month it makes a noise like someone is starting up a lawnmower.:(. So disappointed especially for the price
love the space inside, great lighting
from Sioux City, IA, United States
Great use of space, able to see everything so not throwing so much food away. Bright lighting, making it better to see things.
from Winter Haven, FL, United States
Read as many reviews as I could before purchase. I was worried about loud noise developing after a couple of months. However, no noise developed after three months. The cubed ice plugs up and has to be manually dissipated. We use the cubed ice and have no problem. The hot water dispenser takes to long but works. We are very happy with this refrigerator. Easy adjustable shelves. Easy to clean. The right amount of storage for us. Replaced an old 1994 GE refrig. that still works, but wanted an updated unit with water and ice dispenser. Glad we bought this refrigerator. No regrets so far.
Very loud Refrigerator
from Raleigh, NC
This is a very loud refrigerator. Will not purchase another GE appliance.
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
I bought this to match appliances in new construction home. Love it.
Looks great, but...
from Lakeville, MN, United States
Loud unit, both compressor and fans in door. Should not have passed QA. Hot water is a plus but rarely used. Doors are thick so don't think you will get this flushed into an opening.
