All 220 Volt GE appliances sold in the United States for use overseas come with a two-year parts and one year labor warranty. While we suggest utilizing a General Electric Authorized service center, any competent mechanic can make the repair. See warranty for details. This is the strongest, most comprehensive baggage trade warranty available in North America.
2. BAKED ENAMEL on STEEL REFRIGERATOR LINERS
GE Side by Side Refrigerators now offer Baked Enamel on Steel Cabinet liners. This liner is the toughest, most long lasting available. It does not absorb odors, and is impervious to stains. It costs more money to manufacture a steel liner. That's why our competitor use HIPS polystyrene. Polystyrene plastic is much less expensive but it is brittle and is subject to cracking.
3. ABS PLASTIC DOOR AND REFRIGERATOR LINERS
All GE Top Mount Refrigerators utilize ABS Plastic in their cabinet liners. ABS Plastic is the same material NFL Football helmets are made with. It doesn't get brittle and crack when exposed to cold.
4. GE's EXCLUSIVE ELECTRONIC MONITORING SYSTEM
The General Electric Electronic Monitoring System is available on selected side by side models. It indicates when power has been interrupted, if the defrost system has failed, if the freezer or refrigerator temperature is higher than normal and if the door is ajar. The Electronic Monitoring System operates on low voltage. This means it is isolated from power line fluctuations. Voltage spikes or dips have no effect on the operation or reliability of the computer. CONSUMERS WHO LIVE IN AREAS WHERE THE ELECTRICITY ISN'T RELAIBLE WOULD BE SERVED VERY WELL BY BUYING A GENERAL ELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR WITH THE ELECTRONIC MONITORING SYSTEM. Because the system is not a control panel, refrigerator functions cannot be accidentally altered.
5. GE's EXCLUSIVE REFRESHMENT DOOR
General Electric is the only appliance manufacturer that offers a refreshment door on selected side by side models. The 3rd door offers instant access to favorite foods and snacks. It reduces needless door openings. By just opening the refreshment door, most of the cold air remains in the refrigerator, which conserves energy. The open door converts to a convenient work counter which is lit for better visibility.
6. LIGHT TOUCH WATER AND ICE DISPENSER
The GE "Light-Touch" dispenser features a single pad that, when touched, dispenses ice, crushed ice or chilled water. A light touch is all that is required, so paper cups won't crumple and glasses won't break. The dispenser is cradle-free; taller glasses and bowls for accessing bulk ice fit easily in the large open dispenser area. You won't find this feature on any Whirlpool refrigerator.
7. CROSS BRACING AND DOOR WITHIN A DOOR SUPPORT
Cross bracing or door within a door offers added support and strength. It keeps the doors from sagging. It is more important today as more food and beverages are stored on the door bins. All GE small, top- mount refrigerator doors utilize cross bracing. All GE large top mount refrigerator doors as well as all GE Side by Side refrigerators utilize Door within a Door Support.
8. GE's PATENTED TEXTURED STEEL CABINET
GE's Textured Steel offers a longer lasting appearance and hides fingerprints and smudges. What separates GE from the rest? The Super Seville Textured Steel, manufactured by U.S. Steel, is easier to clean than other brands because the distances between the high and low points in the texture are very slight. Ruts or valleys don't form. This results in a smooth and even paint application and ensures a long term, high-sheen exterior appearance.
9. SPILL-PROOF SHELVES, MODULAR DOOR BINS AND QUICK SERVE STORAGE SYSTEM
General Electric offers Spill-Proof shelves on many of their refrigerators. What separates GE's shelves from the rest? Each spill-proof shelf can hold up to 12 oz. of spilled liquid. Our Modular Door Bins have a spill proof, four-sided design. Each bin is designed to hold up to 18 lb. of foods or beverages. This could be two, one-gallon jugs of milk. Our competitors cannot make these claims.
10. COIL FREE BACKS
Coil free backs eliminate messy coils to clean, gives a more integrated appearance and allows the refrigerator to fit closer to the wall. Believe it or not, some of our competitors still use coils on the backs of most of their refrigerators. Coil free backs allow up front cleaning. There is no need to move the refrigerator to reach the evaporator coils.
