Review GE Profile PWE23KYNFS Refrigerator
The GE profile PWE23KYNFS is one of GE’s most popular French door counter-depth refrigerators. In this video, you’ll learn all the best features of this refrigerator as well as a few problems. Then we’ll compare the profile versus some other French door counter-depths of from Bosch, Samsung and the new Beko. In the end, you’ll know whether the PWE23KYNFS is right for you. Let’s get started.
From the outside, the profile looks like an ordinary French door. It has the water and ice on the inside versus the outside dispenser. That’s not always a bad thing as ice dispensers are the number one service issue. It’s large for counter-depth as well at 23.1 cubic feet versus the average French door Counter- -depth from 19.5 to 22 cubic feet. Like many other new refrigerators profiler’s to evaporators, so the moist, warmer air of the refrigerator doesn’t commingle with the colder, drier air of your freezer.
Basically, the odors and tastes of your refrigerator don’t end up in your ice cream, so frozen foods should taste better. It’s also Wi-Fi enabled, so you’ll be able to control the temperature of your refrigerator straight from your phone. GE is reliable as well at 21.3% versus 25.5% for French door counter-depths in total on average.
Of course, you will need some service at some point. So make sure you know who will be fixing a refrigerator before you buy it. GE has better service than most brands. The other feature, if I can say that, to this refrigerator, it’s is availability, which has been good throughout the year. Unlike most other brands.
Main problem is the price at $2,540-$2,849 So it is one of the most expensive refrigerators in the market.
Bosch is a few hundred dollars more, but offers to compressors for better temperature control and stainless in the back to supercool the items you placed next to it. Stainless absorbs cold better than plastic. Bosch is also incredibly quiet and only 40 decibels, so you won’t hear it running. However, GE’s larger 23 Cubic Feet versus 21 Cubic Feet for the Bosch. Beko is the newest brand is cheaper than GE at $2,299.
It has some cool filtering features for ethylene gas in their active blue light technology, simulates photosynthesis, extending the life of your fruits and vegetables along with a filter to slow food spoilage. They even have IonGuard technology pulsing negative ions to counteract the positive ions found in odors, keeping your refrigerator smelling fresher. However, GE has Wi-Fi and its larger at 23.5 Cubic Feet versus 19.5 for the Beko counte-depth.
Profiles biggest competitor is Samsung. They have an incredible array of refrigerators and styles in three and four door, or French door and are inexpensive during promotional holidays. However, the profile is available, whereas Samsung has had availability issues. The reliability for is GE better as well at 20% 25% for the Samsung. We service what we sell. However, if you’re buying from a store without service, GE has far better aftermarket support than Samsung.
Should You Buy It?
Yes, it’s a bit pricey. Profile has decent features with good size between evaporators. They also offer a decent line of other appliances if you’re looking to renovate your whole kitchen. However, there are other models and brands to consider, both more expensive with the new twin compressor Bosch or less expensive like the more tech laden Beko or more promotional Samsung. But GE does have the best combination of size, features and reliability.
