Marginal Performance

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 dont understand they didnt 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.

The slate finish is beautiful and really does resist fingerprints. The counter depth fits perfectly in my kitchen. The water and ice features on the door work well but it is difficult to get ice directly out of the freezer.

Super happy with new refrigerator

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.

worried about the ice maker

For the first month the freezer door wouldnt close without slamming it and anytime you closed the refrigerator the freezer door opened. Ice built up on the sides of the freezer and ice would drop outside the ice container.

Fantastic Refrigerator

Good Counter depth fridge NO fingerprints

2/16/2018

We purchased this particular counter depth side-by-side refrigerator due to specific space availability in our kitchen. The capacity for the two of us is generous. The best feature is the slate finish that absolutely does not show fingerprints other than the handles which are easily wiped clean.

Interior Lighting

2/10/2018

The layout of our cabinets required that we must have a cabinet depth refrigerator. This one was the closest we could find with the features and color we desired. Unfortunately we are unhappy with the interior lighting in both the freezer and fridge. You almost need a flashlight to find the items on anything below the top shelf. Other than that its performing well. Bought two months ago.

Happiness is a New Refrigerator

12/26/2017

Replaced my 20 year old GE Profile side-by-side refrigerator in October 2017 because it was leaking water into the bottom of the freezer every time it made ice cubes Very happy with the new side-by-side refrigerator because it not only brings me peace of mind but it also properly cools our food and has ample space for all our groceries. Our previous refrigerator had three drawers in it so I have had to readjust where I store various items in the two drawers provided but the top shelf has more storage than my previous refrigerator. I would definitely recommend this refrigerator to my friends and family as I am very happy with my purchase.

I like the Looks but VERY NOISY

12/4/2017

I do like the looks of the fridge for sure but the noises it makes scare the heck out of me. It is very loud but the other day it was making a crazy noise. I turned off the ice machine and it made it for a bit more and then stopped. I hope I dont have a lemon but Ill keep my fingers crossed. It is a bit dark especially in the lower section of the fridge but other than that its a new fridge.
