No More GE Appliances For Me!

No more GE appliances for me!!

I purchased my GE Profile Side by Side refrigerator new. After four years, the evaporator fan in the freezer began to make a noise like it was hitting something. It was icing up, which indicated it needed a new computer board.

I found a replacement computer board from a local tech for $50. After the sale, the tech admitted he made a mistake in the price but was willing to stand by his first price. I should have paid more like $125.

I put the board in myself, and everything was great until the freezer and fridge started warming up six months later.

Now I need a new compressor to the tune of $500. I refuse to put a $500 compressor into a machine I paid $1000 for.

In my opinion, putting a computer board into a kitchen appliance is ridiculous. I just want cold milk, eggs, and a freezer that freezes. Bell and whistles, no thanks!

Our GE top freezer fridge (model GTR22KSSARSS) is a HUGE piece of junk.

The motor needed to be replaced after just 2 yrs or so. The cost to us was $450 plus labor to replace!

Unbelievable! I will never purchase anything from GE again.

I never would have thought...

I never would have believed that a GE refrigerator could have so many problems myself until I bought one too!!

While I didn't have the same problems, I did end up having to buy a new one only 3 years later.

I feel your pain!

BTW I did have luck when I bought my next fridge which was a Whirlpool. Maybe you should look into getting one of them.
