GE Elite Profile PGSS5PJX refrigerator ... purchased ~2010.

This answer was rated:

GE Elite Profile PGSS5PJX refrigerator ... purchased ~2010. Repairs: frozen water line ... tech said we kept doors open too long; had an earlier issue while under warranty (forgot what); current: both top door gaskets need replacement (with labor, visit, parts, installation) GE estimate $600 ... this does NOT fix the frozen eggs or the ice maker that will not stop producing ice. I assume, we have a bad thermometer also ... have not priced fix ... my estimate probably around $200.

Do I fix it or replace it?

What 4 door refrigerator is the one to buy? All owner reviews either rave or hate their refrigerator ... depends on whether they have the lemon or not. Help.

I am so disappointed in GE. My other GE appliance are losing their paint (stove, microwave). How do you find appliances that just work and do not fall apart or need repairs?

oh okay. I'll opt out because like you said everyone has a different opinion on different makes and I cant tell you which 4 door is best.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction.




I know your frustrations, this unit even though it is says it is a GE is made in Korea by LG, the door gaskets and freezing problems are well known for a long time. Ge use to make one of the best for the money, however competition with the overseas makers made this happen, I personally would not put any money into it as you will be feeding a dead horse, there are a few good 4 door models out there, what price range would you be looking at?





Customer: replied 3 years ago.

There are sales now happening ... I would like to keep 4 doors (2 French refrigerator, 2 freezer or deli drawers) ... hope max out at $2500. We are a family of 3 adults, but when company comes it is many at once ... we can always buy ice and I do keep a 2nd refrigerator (Maytag side by side) on another level. Does that help?


I want one that works.



I have a Whirlpool, that is fantastic and on sale now $2250 with free delivery. The ice maker is built into the ceiling of the unit, plenty of space. the link is below to it.

Lowe's has model WRX735SDBM on sale for $1781+ ~210 tax, 150 4 yr extended warranty. I looked at the model ... I liked everything UNTIL I pulled out the drawers ... they were cheap plastic, hard to open and plastic rubbed on plastic. Once loaded those drawers would be the pits.


What are the drawers like in your refrigerator? I will find that model and have a look. The reviews were favorable on the Whirlpool above, except for loud compressor. Since it was not operational, I have no idea what loud means.


What do you think of Samsung? 28 cu ft RF4287HARS or 25.5 cu ft RF4267HARS? reviews were love or hate, all sorts of issues


What do you think of KitchenAid? 25cu ft KRXS25RYWH not sure why I did not research this one


Besides GE what are the other brands to avoid? Which brands are made in USA?


They are on metal tracks with ball bearings allowing easy pulling and closing of the drawers.
if we are talking about the main drawers and not the interior ones. Most are made with plastic on plastic for the interior drawers.. Maytag/Whirlpool/Kitchenaid are made by the same MFG, all made in the USA. Frigidaire is made in Mexico now. The nice thing about Kitchen AId units are they have more features and 90% of the time they come with long warranties with them. The kitchen aid you mention comes with 10 years warranty on the sealed system, unheard of by other companies..

THe LG and Smasung I can never recommend to anybody, they make good electronics but terrible refridgerators, I fix more of them than any other brands....

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

THAT was what I needed to hear. No wonder I really like the Maytag downstairs. Okay, now I can shop and I know what NOT to buy.


Have a nice day. You just make mine .

I am glad that I made your day, enjoy the weekend....
