I've had the same problems off and on for six solid years, and they can never seem to fix it long enough to be able to forget that I have a fridge!!

The problems are all over the entire appliance! Starting with the door! You would think that a refrigerator company could make a door that would stay closed and keep things cold to save on energy, right? Nope.

The main latch on it won't keep it closed, so it's constantly open and overworking, costing me a fortune, and food spoils all of the time in it! It's unbelievably frustrating!!

The water line is forever clogged up and not making ice! How can I enjoy my fridge when it doesn't even do the basics I bought it to do? The water and ice have never worked properly since I bought it!

Then there's the Mother Board. For those who don't know, a motherboard is the essential part of a refrigerator that tells all electronic parts what to do and when to do them. (I didn't know what one was before owning this refrigerator either because we aren't supposed to!!) Well, I've had to have my motherboard replaced twice!!

So if you think that maybe it's just things behind the scenes (like the motherboard), that would be incorrect. Often I go to get something out of the refrigerator, and the drawers fall off their tracks! I mean, thoughtfully, who designed this refrigerator? A 5-year-old could've done better!!

One of my
favorite things to worry about is what will happen to my refrigerator on warm days - again, something you should never have to even think about if your refrigerator is working properly!!

Usually, it won't keep either the freezer or refrigerator cold on warm days! There's nothing like going to your refrigerator on a warm day for a cold drink and discovering that your ice cream is like soup!!

As I mentioned, it is a complete electricity Hog (even though it often isn't doing its job!) I thought I was getting an energy-efficient refrigerator, but that was certainly NOT the case! My energy bill went up the day I bought this thing and has never gotten any lower!

And finally, the central compressor makes a racket. It makes so much noise it drives my whole family crazy.

Considering this, we've had enough and will probably junk it.

When we bought our new house, we decided to buy all new GE's Best appliances. If this is the "BEST" GE offers, then I'm beyond scared. None of them have performed well for us!!

Besides having trouble with the refrigerator, we've had the following:

1. The microwave, repaired twice, now remains unrepaired. Instead, we have to use the lousy exhaust fan
2. The Main Motherboard in the stove had to be replaced. (Do you see a pattern here?)
3. The Dishwasher Pump and solenoid had to be replaced!!!!

So if you want my honest opinion, here it is:
