It's important to know the model number when ordering replacement parts for a GE refrigerator. Refrigerator parts may change between model years. Also, some refrigerators require different parts because of specific features. Providing a model number to a service technician ensures that they have the right parts.
The model number is a series of letters and numbers printed on a sticker or metal plate inside the refrigerator. An owner’s manual can explain where to find the location of a model number.
