Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

great

GE great 21 5/7/2021

It is more roomy inside than we had thought it to be. It keeps things cooled and we especially like that it doesn't freeze up at the top. we have also noticed that the food stays fresher longer on the crisper.

Good price for lab refrigerator

isocyanates 5/7/2021

We bought this refrigerator to store reagents in a laboratory setting. It fit our needs well and was a reasonable price. It is a standard no-frill refrigerator. I can't speak to its longevity since we've only had it a month.

Great Fridge

Toot Toot Toot 4/30/2021

The inside of the refrigerator seems larger than the 20 year old 19 cu ft fridge that I replaced. The door pockets for milk and other items leave plenty of shelf room. The fridge is quiet and easy to use. Food is kept cold. Because of the pandemic the GTE17DTNRWW was the only one available in the size I needed. Pleasantly surprised.

Decent fridge so far

Jrdi 4/28/2021

This fridge fit my criteria at the time: it was in stock, it fit the space in kitchen, and it is Energy Star rated. I have no desire to rebuild my kitchen around the huge fridges pushed today! So far it is working well, although a little loud when it is running. A decent, no frills fridge.

Rose91 4/8/2021

Did not want this refrigerator because it was smaller than my old one, but husband liked it. Too small. Freezer does not have a separate control from the refrigerator section. Ice cream tends to be soft Too often. Refrigerator needs an extra shelf. Just very disappointed in this refrigerator.

Works so far...

Julie00000001 3/7/2021

Only had it for a couple of days. It works like a refrigerator so that's good. Needed one ASAP and this was the only one in stock that fit our area. Otherwise two weeks to wait. No one carries in store anymore. Seems ok. Very very small but works as it should for a refrigerator.

KSP943 3/4/2021

We had to get a second fridge delivered due to freezer popping open when you close the fridge door. This one is not as bad as the first one but when the fridge is running it is so loud and annoying that I wish we had kept the old fridge we were replacing in the first place.

Perfect For Off-Grid Solar

JimOffGrid21 1/13/2021

I joined the proliferation of off-grid solar electric households. And this refrigerator has G.E.'s 1.2 Amp compressor, which, if your solar system can supply enough power to run, is ideal. Why G.E. doesn't make the compressor's low amperage is beyond me and frankly a HUGE mistake on their part. With more and more people turning to this technology, G.E. Is potentially missing out on a large number of customers. Instead they make it next-to-impossible to learn which of their models incorporates this 1.2 Amp compressor. Call their tech support; they don't know, it's evidently not in their databases, or materials ! Call dealers and stores, including the "big box stores" and they don't know. I challenge G.E. to make that information readily available. After all, in this day-and-age, it's a distinct market advantage for them and at whatever level will up the bottom-line. Oh I understand, industry-wide appliance manufacturers adopted, or accepted the energy standards; you know the yellow stickers showing average annual usage rates. But those figures are based on electricity rate prices that typically don't match-up with where their consumer customers are going to be plugging their refrigerators in. More importantly those numbers do solar power users looking into G.E. refrigerator/freezers no good ! At best they get to make a comparison. Interesting, somewhat helpful, but what is needed is the appliances amperage, which is bafflingly kept hidden. In fact the only way I could discover this model's amperage, a basic electric spec (specification), was by buying one and, when it was delivered, opening up the box to read the inscribed data on the metal tag. How can I go to a store, even a big box store during this COVID epidemic, when the stores DO NOT have any of your models displayed on the floor, so potential solar customers can look inside at the metal plate information. Why G.E. won't make this information readily available to their potential customers (and yes, we are talking revenue for the company at whatever level). It should be a fairly straightforward matter to give the compressor amperage information to all personnel in your technical support department, to addend your specs in at least online product manuals, and to make sure your authorized dealers, including the big box stores have this information to provide. With that out-of-the-way, the G.E. 16.6 cu. ft. refrigerator / top freezer works just great and, more importantly is easily powered by my off/grid solar electric system. Would recommend it, or any other G.E. refrigerator that uses their 1.2 Amp compressor. Make sure, if G.E. takes a hint and starts to provide that information, to do the calculations, to ensure your system can provide the necessary power, without killing your battery bank.

Noisey

ceceliasummit 1/12/2021

This was the only product that was available that fit into the space that I had my choices were severely limited. I understand this is not the top-of-the-line that you make but as I said this was my only option that fit. At this point is it is extremely noisy at different periods of time as it cycles. Last night for some reason there were three points in its cycling that were so loud that it woke me up. It is at least bigger than what I had before but the cycling noise sometimes is very annoying. I would recommend this refrigerator only "as I have to have something."
