FD refrigerators

boccemomMarch 5, 2012

I am looking at the GE Profile FD PFSS9SKYSS vs the Samsug RFG298HDRS; I've heard the Samsung is loud and service unreliable but any feedback on the GE? thanks!

GE doesn't get good reviews on here for fridges. With that said, my sister has a GE Cafe SxS that has performed well for the past 6 years. I have a Kenmore badged Samsung counter depth SxS and have had 0 problems. The only thing that I would consider "loud" is when the ice drops out of the icemaker into the bin (icemaker & bin are on the door). Other than that, the only sounds I hear out of it are the door open alarms.

The Samsung model you are looking at seems to have good reviews overall on BestBuy.com. Where did you hear it was loud? As far as service, I've heard and read good & bad on both companies and that really seems to be the norm these days--they all want to sell you the latest & greatest at a premium price, but when you need something after the sale, you have to fight for it tooth & nail.

One thing to look for on those French Door fridges that you may not have noticed, is how much clearance there is between the drawer & the refrigerator doors when you open the freezer drawer. We found that most FD refrigerators had very little clearance between the two which meant to get most things out of the freezer, you would have to open the fridge doors as well.

Hope this helps!

That helps a lot! Didn't think about the clearance issue but will go back to store to check it out. Thanks for the input; am leaning toward the Samsung and when all remodeling is complete, will post my own thoughts. Thanks again.
