Many new products come with a warranty, or a guarantee that the manufacturer repairs or replaces the product for free if it breaks or proves defective within a certain period of time after purchase. Registering a General Electric product lets GE know who owns that specific item.
Contact GE customer service by email, phone or live chat on its website, GE Appliances. To find support options, click on the Service & Support tab and then the Contact Us tab from the website's home page, notes GE Appliances.
The problems covered by the warranty on a GE refrigerator vary from model to model, as not all models come with the same warranty. Full details of what is covered are available in the written warranty in the product's Use and Care Manual.
Owners of General Electric appliances under warranty can register their appliances at the GE Appliances website. While registering an appliance makes it easier to get customer support from GE, failure to register doesn't void the warranty.
