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.

Counter depth

RichLebanon 3/23/2020

We had limits on the depth and height of a product due to our kitchen cabinets. There were cheaper products out there that would fit but they weren't nice looking or have the features this one does. The slate wasn't our first choice but it's all we could get because we were told this line is being discontinued. I hope that's not true. The finish is great and the slate goes very well with our other black appliances. The inside space is limited due to the smaller size of it but the adjustable shelves and door shelves work perfect and maximize the space there is. I really miss a deli drawer but the amount of space it would take up I understand why there isn't one. After more than 6 months I still very pleased.

NO LIGHT IN THE LOWER HALF OF THIS FRIDGE!

Shawnee5 8/23/2019

I love some things about this fridge, but do not like others. #1, there is no light except in the very top. This makes the bottom half so dark, you need to turn the kitchen light on. I've never seen a fridge without a lower light in MANY years. I do like the counter depth. Also, there is VERY little room in the freezer part.

AGarcia73114 5/5/2019

We bought this fridge just a year ago and it is has been nothing but problems since we bought it. The water dispenser is super slow, and now the freezer gets frosted and blocked by frost. We've had it serviced multiple times with "everything working properly" and had gone to bed with a 0 degree freezer and woken up to a 36 degree freezer and 50 degree fridge. Have had to throw away our groceries 4x. I'm done!!! Spent way too much on this fridge and already needing to buy another! Ridiculous!!!

ICE CRUSH and CUBED DO NOT WORK WORK PROPERLY

CSW123 3/30/2019

The crushed ice has cubed in it and the cubed has crushed. I did try leaving the crushed on for a few days without switching to cubed and vice versa. Made no difference. Had three different repairmen sent from GE. They replaced the ice bucket which contains the auger and it worked the same way. The repairmen wrote up report stating " it works as designed". What a "cop-out". Then, all I can say it is NOT designed right. I use both ice features - especially the crushed all day every day. So, this is a very big issue for me. This is an expensive model and expected everything to be working perfectly for this price.

Works great

Avid runner 3/13/2019

I've had the fridge for two years now and it continues to work great. We needed a smaller side by side due to the location of a counter that wasn't allowing a larger door to open. The water filter works good and we change it as indicated. There are just two of us in the house so the fridge space is adequate but wouldn't work for a larger family as well. The freezer space is pretty small but we don't keep much on that side. There is a small basket at the bottom that is useless and a waste of space. Overall I would purchase again due to the space requirements we had to work with. We are mainly fridge side users so it works well for us!

Good Refrigerator

Dawn 9999 3/8/2019

The fridge storage is really great, but the light is rather dim. Love the moisture control feature on the drawers. On the freezer side, it would benefit from drawers or baskets instead of shelving so items are held more securely.

Awful Lighting

jtarheel 1/6/2019

I am extremely disappointed with the lighting in this refrigerator. With the new LED technology available this is a horrible situation. If you want to see in the refrigerator, do NOT buy this unit. Hoping GE engineers will provide a work around. I am willing to pay for better lighting.

Lclay 11/15/2018

Was not working properly when I received it but the problem wasn't obvious before the allotted 48 hours so we were stuck with this horribly designed refrigerator and could not exchange it. It was $2300, extremely overpriced and been repaired TWICE already in 3 months. I'll never buy GE anything again.

Marginal Performance

tnrc51 10/24/2018

We bought this as part of a 4-piece kitchen update. We had seen the reviews and expected a nice refrigerator. Our experience and observations are not so impressive. First, a refrigerator is supposed to keep your food cold and safe. This one barely does that. We noticed that our meats stored in the bottom drawer were noticeably warmer than in the old refrigerator. We put 3 digital thermometers inside at different levels and discovered that the bottom drawer will hover just at 40 degrees despite the control setting of the lowest possible (34 F) The top shelf near the door will also only reach to 39-40 degrees sitting with the doors closed overnight. After researching I learned that safe temps should never go above 40. Depending on if the system is defrosting, this one will go as high as 43. I firmly believe part of the problem is a poor design. There is not a duct to move air to the bottom levels of the unit, so the temperatures are not even. There are definitely "areas" that are cold next to where the air comes out of the freezer into the "frig" section. However, that air is not distributed well enough. Also, the sensors that control the cooling are in the wall between the freezer and refrigerator sections. I suspect they get fooled because of where they are located. Also, the control being locked out at 34 prevents the owner from lowering the set point. I don't understand they didn't take into account that there could be variations in the system that would make it desirable for an owner to set it lower. As long as the food is cold enough who cares what the setting number says? Second, the lighting in this model is terrible. There is only one light source at the top so by the time you have items on the selves the bottom is very dim and un-appealing. It works fine in the store when it is empty. Other GE models have integrated LED lights throughout the storage area. For the price-point where this model is you would expect better. If the refrigerator section worked as well as the freezer and had better lighting, this would be a nice machine. Sorry GE, but this should be better.

Not worth $2,300

Pagirl913 8/23/2018

The fridge looks nice and probably works great but it is poorly designed. Yes it is counter depth so I knew it was smaller. They did not have one in the showroom to view so I went by the regular size one they had on display and hoped for something similar, albeit smaller. Considering that it is more compact more should have been done to give as much space as possible. The overhead light in the fridge side is unnecessarily large taking up precious space. Overall I'm not happy because it's just too small. AND DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE UPCHARGE FOR A MUCH SMALLER UNIT! Who knew smaller cost that much more. $1,200 and change for the bigger one and $2,300 for the SMALLER one?!?!

Super happy with new refrigerator

nvrdemo 6/29/2018

I had a GE Profile Refrigerator for 20 years and I decided to replace it before it died. GZS22DMJES is the only counter-depth, slate refrigerator that I could buy. It is much like the old one but has 1 less drawer in refrigerator. It seems to be working well and I like the features. I wish there were more grooves in the freezer so that I could buy an additional shelf. I wish that that the wheels locked to keep it from shifting too far back against the wall.
