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.

mikenich 4/10/2020

This will be the 2nd niggut Maker we have purchased. This helps with the ice chewing and makes the drinks hard and soft easier to deal with. We no longer need to go out and purchase the soft ice. withthe bluetooth login now we can schedule ice when needed

Kimmi23 4/9/2020

As ice machines go, the size is perfect! Was expecting a long wait for delivery but received it in 2 days. Easy cleaning and install instructions. Ice started making after 15 minutes. It does emit a constant soft whirring sound but to be expected to keep the ice making and cold. I love the Bluetooth feature on it!

NC CT 4/7/2020

We purchased this ice machine a few days before we started our corona virus quarantine. We can make soft drinks and cocktails just like we would get in a coffee shop or restaurant. Sometimes little things make a big difference. This is a great ice machine that so far has been flawless.

It squeaks constantly

Chapels wife 4/7/2020

We had a service request for someone to come and look at it and they told us there wasn't anything they could do. It is a replace or refund issue. We spent a lot of money and have only had I since 12/25/2019 and we have done the cleaning, draining all the water and letting it sit and then try it again and within days if not a day we have the squeaking happening again. It is very frustrating. We love the ice we are just tire of the system squeaking all the time.

MY EXISTING REFRIG MAKES SOLID ICE, CRUSHED ICE AND SNOWBALL TYPE ICE. WHEN WE ENTERTAIN MY REFRIG CAN'T KEEP UP. THIS MACHINE WILL HELP WITH THE ICE NEEDS WHEN WE ENTERTAIN OR HAVE OUR THREE (3) KIDS WITH SPOUSES AND OUR EIGHT (8) GRANDKIDS. THANKS GE. GREAT PRODUCT DESIGN.

Excellent product, makes a LOT of ice, a tad noisy

jbofjax 4/1/2020

Our fridge doesn't make ice quickly enough, so we looked at counter units and this was the only unit I could find that makes "the good ice". This unit makes a lot of ice quickly and the quality is top notch. It is a bit noisy, and I wish there was a water line hookup option, but my family loves this ice maker. A bit pricey as well, but it works great.

Our family loves the icemaker. It expensive compared to other table tops but if you want nugget ice this is the machine you want. I downloaded the app to control the times that the machine is on so that helps control the continuous humming sound. It basically sounds like the microwave is on.

This machine has been going 24/7 since we purchased it a couple of months ago...Makes ice all day long...Everyone loves it....From a design standpoint, I wish you could fill the side reservoir from the top...This would make life easier...Instead, you have to take that reservoir off the base and fill it under the sink...Just a thought..

Very loud sounds like a antique vehicle running

Two Barrell 3/23/2020

I absolutely loved this Ice machine when I first bought it and after a couple of cleanings it's started making a very loud noise that seriously sounded like a antique car running after the warranty ran out the water pump stopped pumping water I called and went through all the protocols to restart it with no success. GE has purchased this machine from First Build and they show the water pump and it's part number and on the same page it states the part is not for sale. Come on GE I need your help I give up on First Build

Finally got one that works . . .

CJMB 3/22/2020

The first one we purchased came in a timely manner, however, it did not work at all. It just circulated lukewarm water and cut itself off. Tried to use the app, but that wouldn't work. The first one we purchased from Amazon came in a timely manner, however, it did not work at all. It just circulated lukewarm water and cut itself off. Tried to use the app, but that wouldn't work. We contacted Amazon, they had to contact GE. We waited a week, heard nothing, and then called GE. GE said to contact Amazon. After multiple phone calls, emails, etc. and hours of wasted time over the course of a week and a half, we finally begged someone at GE into helping us. All the customer service reps we talked to at Amazon and GE were very nice and courteous, but it was still a royal runaround. GE sent a replacement model and arranged for FED EX to pick up the old one. The replacement ice maker works perfectly and we love the ice. However, the machine is extremely loud and noisy. Unless you have a butler's pantry or laundry room where you can shut the door, I wouldn't recommend having this sitting on your kitchen counter. Also, having been through the experience of receiving one that was defective, I would wait until more research and development has been done and get a future model where the bugs have been worked out.

1st one was returned at Day 32

JCBinGF 3/19/2020

This thing is compact and makes great ice. Unfortunately, at Day 32, it started making a noise when it made ice, every 8 seconds. A squealing sound that became louder each day. It took me 5 calls and several emails to customer service to finally get a replacement, which, after a week, seems to be doing much better. I wish it had a bigger water reservoir. I fill the reservoir daily.

Automated Schedules!

CrashPusher 3/17/2020

Beyond the amazing ice production in my family's favorite ice format, the smarts is what got me as did the side tank. This will make a lot of ice with little intervention. The best smarts is creating schedules to have the ice full and ready in the morning before my girls head off to school and at night before dinner. This will allow the ice made by the fridge to actually produce in tandem so we always have ice. Very happy with this purchase.
