GE Side by Side Refrig Review (model #DSS25KSRSS / MH401985)
(Haywood County, NC, 28786)
I had been pleased with my GE side by side refrigerator until the problems with the freezer and ice maker began. Now, I would not recommend it!
It is only 5 years old. The freezer has big problems.....it starts over-defrosting randomly
. This causes the ice maker not to work as the ice thaws then refreezes so the ice maker cannot dispense ice as it's all stuck together.
For the past 6-8 weeks we have had no ice, had to throw food away in the freezer twice due to ice buildup on it and then it partially defrosting
. We've had damage to our wood floor
underneath because water leaks out of the bottom of the door when the defrosting occurs.
This last time, had we been away from home, I believe there would have been extensive damage to our wood floor.
We have the service contract through Home Depot which we paid extra for, then renewed at the end of the time period. Their contracted service agency has been out twice to fix the problem....it is fixed for a day, then the same problem commences. The time window to wait on the service agency is 5 hours.
I am totally frustrated and disgusted with this product!
