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.

You should make it possible to bypass the filter or get water without the filter installed. It took you 2 months to deliver the filter after I ordered it. You didn't communicate the delay or status during the two months.

I received an email from GE saying it was time to replace my filter. The next day the signal light on my fridge came on...perfect timing. I had started to search for a replacement locally but with Covid closings and protocols I was having no luck finding any in stock. The email listed the correct filter for my fridge and provided a link for purchasing directly from GE. My new filter arrived in just a couple days.
