Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $110 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Worst Filter Ever

Bago 7/15/2022

First of all, this is a proprietary filter, which means, you can only use the GE brand, therefore , cheaper generic filters aren't an option. My issues with this filter are as follows: 1. The XWFE filter doesn't last long. I got approximately 2 months average service life. Although the filter is rated for 180 gallons of service life, my filter status indicator was still showing 62%, when this filter was letting out a trickle of water. 2. Proprietary filter. This filter has a RFID chip installed to communicate with the refrigerator to tell it it's a geniune GE filter, or it won't work. 3. I'm sure I'm not the only one, who is complaining about this filter.

PNRS 7/14/2022

We purchased our GE refrigerator in May, 2022 and the water filter has already slow in dispensing water. It's only been 1.5 months and the water filter status shows "69%". Our old refrigerator which was also GE had better filtering capacity. The water does taste good.

Does the job, but $54.99 for one water filter? Ridiculous! Feels like GE is taking advantage of its customers. PLUS, the site says "save $30" on a 3-pack, but click on it and no such discount. Frustrating, and not a good value.

Great Filter! Easy installation-Always buy Direct

Sammy712 6/3/2022

We bought what we thought was a genuine GE filter online only to find a leak when we opened the door a few minutes later. It even came in what looked to be an authentic box. Needless to say there was no serial number on the filter like the genuine ones have. We then bought direct from GE and had no issues with the one currently in our refrigerator. Water quality I noticed was better than the other filter as well. We will be buying direct from now on.

Water tastes terrible with these filters! NO stars

kittensNchickens 4/15/2022

We bought a new refrigerator in September 2021 that came with a water filter. The water from the original filter tasted fine. I bought new XWFE filters directly from GE and the water now has an awful metallic taste. It's unusable. I bought a pack of three filters. We completely flushed the first filter and have been using it for about a month but the water just tastes awful. I put a new filter in yesterday and flushed it well and the water still tastes awful. I work at home and drink water all day long so this is super frustrating. I wish there was another filter that I could try but I can't find an off-brand version that will work with this refrigerator. Honestly, it's undrinkable water using this filter. My tap water tastes better.
