Summary: Needs a bit more room for taller items. Went from a 25 cubic foot to this one and we still have plenty of room with our family of four. No bells and whistles but it looks good in our smaller sized kitchen.
Summary: I live in a small apartment and like top freezer refrigerators. Big problem is the seal on the freezer. when the bottom door closes, the freezer section pops open. Drives me crazy. I called the dealer and he said to use vaseline on the seal, but this is a temp fix. The veggie bins are too small due to compressor in botttom back of fridge. so now my container for lettuce has to stay on the bottom shelf and it takes up space.
Summary: We bought it in December 2012, and it stopped working completely in the night of April 8. A repair technician came and had to order a new control board to resolve our problem. Received the part on April 12, and the repair tech came back to our place to install the new control board.
Summary: This refrigerator offers an okay value and has a spacious freezer but also has what I consider to be a major design flaw as has been pointed out by other reviewers. The temperature dial is located just above the top shelf and is easily changed without knowing it when accessing items in the refrigerator. I have inadvertently moved the dial several times in the short time that I have owned the refrigerator. I only realized it when food started to thaw in the freezer.
Summary: I have the same problem that several other reviewers have pointed out. A serious design flaw with this refrigerator is the placement of the temperature control dial. It is too easy to move the dial unknowingly when accessing the top shelf. In only a few months of ownership I have done it several times and only realize that I accidentally changed the setting when I found food in the freezer compartment defrosting.
For the price and the efficiency, this is a great refrigerator.

Summary: I wanted a top mount refrigerator because i needed a large freezer compartment. I found this refrigerator to be all that I needed. I do not care for the shallow meat/cheese bin. Or the shape of the two vegetable/fruit drawers. It is this way because of the shape of the back of the refrigerator. Also, I think that it was not ideal to put only one temperature control for both compartments.That would be my major complaint.
Summary: I purchased this product in Oct. 2012. It was not possible to achieve a balance between freezer and refrigerator temperature. GE took the refrigerator back and replaced with a new unit. The same problem continues. If you set the temperature to "5" then the lower part of the refrigerator freezes items in the bottom shelf and bins. I lost many food products.
Summary: I agree with one reviewer that the temp control knob does get bumped and changes the setting. Also, just recently my refrig stopped working overnight and refrig section got warm and freezer section started to defrost. Upped the temp control and nothing happened--unplugged and plugged in and refrig started running. Still running but time will tell if it is working properly.
