Summary: My 4 year old Refrigerator died last week, just 3 months outside of the extended warranty expiration date. I called a reputable local repair service($60 service charge vs. $100 for a GE service call) and he confirmed that the refrigerator has a sealed system problem and needs a new compressor. He approximated that it would cost between $500 and $600 to fix the refrigerator.
Summary: What a headache! 90 % of the problems are with the ice maker and water. The ice maker fills up with ice then freezes over if not constantly being used. Or the "full" lever on the ice maker gets stuck and keeps ice from being made. Constantly having to open the door and pull out the whole ice bin and flip the lever to get it to free up and start making ice again. Of course as soon as you pull the bin out, ice falls all over the kitchen.
Summary: GE appliances started breaking down after 1 year, Replaced.washer & dryer with LG, Excellent, 4 years, fridge freezer stopped freezing & cooling, Freezer fan running, condensor fan runnung, compressor running, ?????
Summary: Bad design. The water dispenser line goes through the freezer areas and freezes up. They then send a repair person to attach a heater to the line. The heater is a little flimsy thing that works for about 6 months to a year (cost over $150).
Summary: This is a good frig, we have had it for about a month. The only minor draw backs are, you need to make sure you hold the cup pretty high to make sure the crushed ice doesnt go everywhere and make sure you use the water a lot to get the nasty taste out the line. It takes a little while but once the new taste is gone its great. Definitely not deal breakers, it really is a good frig.
Summary: I love my new fridge, it compliments my kitchen very well. The fridge is an awesome, all the different compartment are great. The different temperature settings are truly a blessing. All in all I am in bliss with my new fridge.
